Shadows

by

Dominika

It's not so much the end
that makes me miss our past.
It's more about the memories
on which these shadows are cast.

At first it was okay
to feel you let go of me
and realize the selfish games we played.
But now that look you give me,
the one maybe i'm imagining,
makes me wonder about the person you could be.

Reminded of a simpler life
where innocence is bliss.
Reminded of the surrealness
that came with that one kiss.

You're almost a stranger today.
Tomorrow you may drift away
without ever saying goodbye.
Forgotten about the memories of our short past.
The memories on which these shadows are cast.


Faded

by

Dominika

I wrote your name inside a heart.
Traced the letters over again.
So darkly they appeared on paper
as if they seered right through.
The heart smudged a bit.
Again, so flawed.
I stared at your name
sheltered by the heart
that kept growing fainter,
fading from the lines.
I traced your name over again
so that you couldnt leave.
But forgot about the weakening heart
barely visible now, but still there.
I never erased it...it just faded away.
Yet youre carved in so deep
that you will never go
Away.

Untitled

Dominika

Staggered breathing.
Sitting in the darkness.
Choked upon your words.
The words you spoke through tears.
The words that were never true...
And you knew.
A far away scent
of distant memories.
Memories i thought would last.

My eyes, dull and gray from the belief
of your mixed up lies,
They look into yours;
transparent
unlively
confused.
Please tell me, my friend
how without a begining
this could ever be the end?

Simple

by

Dominika

The new moon is invisible
But the stars appear strikingly
against the vast night sky.
It's a simple kind of feeling.
I'm intrigued, curious
So I step up and voluntarily
Fall straight down.
I fall for you.
It's a simple kind of feeling.
You hold on to me,
although you may not know it.
You can feel it.
Your grip is tight
and I'm not letting go.
Come down with me
so I can fall with you.
It's a simple kind of feeling.

Beautifully Flawed

by

Dominika

Weathered and eroded,
my competent mind has transformed.
Still not afraid, still not alone
Yet by myself.
Every thought that enters through me
Travels down to my content heart
And exits as humble whispers through my soul.
What was once a scream for attention
Is now a plead for company.
I dont cry out for help
Yet tears still flow from my eyes
Without barriers, no restrictions
They spill poetically onto my shameful face
Uncovered and flawed.
Beautifully flawed.
Depicted, scarred, and criticized.
But still myself.

6.24.04

Dominika

Droplets of water collect on my warm skin.
Deep breath...resurface.
Your arms capture me and I'm held in an accidental embrace.
And it accidentally feels right.
Your grip is loosened and my body escapes yours.
Wet hair sticks to the back of my neck.
Water blinds me for a moment.
Unfamiliar skin presses against mine
Giggles slip from my lips.
You have me again.
My thoughts are erased for the quickest of seconds.
I cant move you hold me so tight.
You dont want to let go.
This accidentally feels right.
I slowly slip away.
Deep breath...resurface.

Struggle

by

Dominika

An unexpected failure
awaits me at the end of this struggle
Disappointment will linger above me
as a stake is driven through my hope.
I am numb from doubt
My head pounds with exhaustian.
Why do i continue?
Is there a point to it all?
My heart is breaking
My voice is cracking
The sword draws back, ready to strike me down.
With one last tear
and one last breath
I clench my fists
and move forward still
Ready to accept my fate
once again.

Steal Me Away

by

Dominika

The sunlight strikes your face
I cant see a single hint of
immpurity. You're all I need.
Come steal me away, from my
troubles, my fears, to a place
where you can be mine. And we
can dance together in the pouring
rain as the moonlight reflects off
your eyes. You will erase all my
heartache, heal all the pain, with
just a simple goodnight kiss. And
that is all okay. With your hand
in mine, we escape reality's time.

Whispering Silence

by

Dominika

Whispering silence
I ache to hold you
Breathe into me
I starve for you
Theres nothing left
Just breathe with me
Hold onto it
Rising and falling
Listen
Whispering silence

These X's and O's

by

Dominika

These X's and O's
Stand for all you mean to me.
The X for all I've done wrong.
A kiss I have to wait for.
But I'm weak and I need you
To hold me up.
And when I look into you
I'd do anything to be your strength too.

The O for all you've done right.
A kiss you shouldn't wait for
But you're clueless to the secrets
Held inside of me
Screaming just to hear you say
You've always loved me too.

These X's and O's
Bleed right through
And stain the veins running through
This mess you call my heart.
You're like the sweet anesthetic
That I've become hopelessly addicted to.
Without it I'm nothing but an empty shell,
A lost cause waiting for its rescue.
Be my rescue.

These X's and O's
Are all I have to keep me from
falling apart
Until the holes fill my heart
They will always stand for what you mean to me.

This Last

by

Dominika

This last kiss lingers
on the surface of my lips.
Fragile and beautiful.
That last touch triggers
the enigma of our being.
Exciting and pure.
This last stare lasts a lifetime
from the corner of my eye.
Quiet and vulnerable.
That hand held in mine
So calm and intertwined
Gives me somewhere to belong.
This last breath I take
is the last sound you'll hear
until our lips collide once more.

Goodbyes and Apologies

by

Dominika

If I were to die tonight, would you bring flowers to my grave? Did you even care enough to save, those long letters I wrote when you said you couldn't stay?
If I were to cry myself to sleep tonight, would you kiss away my tears? When the fog of the morning clears, will you be standing there to save me?

Today I'll shout my goodbyes, scream my apologies to the world. But until my voice runs out and my lungs collapse,
It wont change this shallow, helpless girl. Tommorrow you'll ask to see me, I'll turn on my fake smile and pretend everything's alright. When everything's clearly not.

If I were to hold you tight tonight, until your body trembled, would that help you remember? If I were to say I loved you, whisper it softly into your ear, would you even want to hear my hidden cries of guilt?

Today's the day it ends. All this drama my being transends. This is my time to shout my goodbyes, scream my apologies to the world. And hope they forgive this shallow, helpless girl.

Quiet Desperation

by

Dominika

I've got this quiet desperation
Fighting to be heard.
So tempting, so vulnerable
So out of my reach.
And its this guilt that leaks into my being.
Guilt that is pushed back, denied, and ignored
For every pleasurable kiss we share.
This mess I caused through
My long-aroused desires
Is this beautiful creation when
Played back through our hearts.
Two heartbeats, faintly thumping against one another.
Warm skin pressed against my lips...
I've got this quiet desperation
Fulfilled by the same longing look
I found in your eyes.
So tempting, so pure.
So tightly held within my grasp.
