Broken and Bleeding

by

Jaclyn A. Cohen

My heart sighs as it beats your name.
Please stop the storms that run through me.
The rain falls from my eyes as tears
And my heart thunders without you.

I am lost and want to find you.
You would look in my eyes
And tell me everything will be okay.
But you can't.

It's over now
And every part of me bleeds.
But it would stop if you came to me
And patched up the hole in my heart.


Cat and Mouse

by

Jaclyn A. Cohen

We could play this game forever.
But I can only chase you in places
within my boundaries.
I can't coax you out of the hole
in the wall. Only you can walk
outside, when you're ready.
But the more I wait for you to
show your face, the deeper my claws
dig into my waiting place.
And soon these claws will create
a bottomless pit that I will not be
able to rescued from.
I know I have nine lives, but
I'd rather not waste one on a mouse
who refuses to be caught.


The Ocean

by

Jaclyn A. Cohen

The repeated movement of each wave as it approaches the waiting shore.
The sound of the water crashing against the rocks that stand in its way.
The feeling of serenity as we stay and play in its majestic beauty.
But how quickly it draws back; leaving only scattered shells as a memory.


Why Am I With You?

by

Jaclyn A. Cohen

Pain like knives slashing through my soul,
I crash to the floor.
Who needs who more?
I've had this all before.
I hate you but I need
you or I bleed inside.
And I can never hide
from truth,
so I want proof
that you are and will be
everything that's good for me.
I want to stay
in a perfect day
leading to the night,
but there's always a fight
which makes my head ache
and my heart break.
Same old story all over again.
Not good enough for a happy end.
You say you love me too much to let me leave.
I don't know what to believe...
