scream. #poetry

I never wanted to find you
I was doing fine on my own
But you had to come along
And ruin everything

You walked into my quiet world
With a scream only I could hear
I couldn’t help but listen
When you broke the silence

Maybe it would have been all right
I could have learned to love the noise
But as quickly as it came
You took it all away

I wish you had never found me
I was fine before you appeared
Now quiet is deafening
And I long for your scream

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
