Flicked the Light

Updated: Aug 18, 2022

Hello everyone, I hope you all having a wonderful day! I am sharing with you all an original poem that I wrote. This poem is something different from what I usually write. This poem style is sort of dark and mysterious and I hope you all enjoy reading it!

Flicked the Light

To say you committed a crime is rude.

You did it metaphorically.

You tricked me into thinking I was your only chance to change.

You made me cringe before your eyes like gasoline dripping out of the nozzle.

You burned me down and then walked away with the match still in your hand.

The four dark walls that we shared turned dangerously rotten as you sucked the life out of me.

The helpless cries and lost screams that left my mouth felt dry because of the cold air you brought.

The pain in my body felt like you stabbed me multiple times and you walked away with pride and callous in your eyes.

The long and confusing nights felt like a crime scene case trying to be solved.

The numbness and heartbreak I felt was like watching you plead not guilty.

The ever-so-chills I felt of your coldness towards me felt like someone was watching me.

The nausea I felt when you were gone was like a room filled with people who just witnessed an accident.

The fear I had when you told me your last words, “goodbye,” clung to me like dried blood.

The disappointment I had when I knew you were never coming back was like a burning candle going out in the night.

The love I had for you felt like a never-ending cycle of lies and forgiveness.

Your touch, still left on my skin is like torn fabric, that has been remade.

Your spoken words burned in my mind like carbon monoxide in the room.

Your intoxicated scent still lingers within my nostrils like old tannic table wine.

Your tone of voice replays over and over again in my mind sounds like a tape recording of your last cruel words.

Your image that I once dreamt of has now disappeared from my memory like a closed case unsolved and lost.

It’s the terrifying and abnormal face that you make when something goes wrong.

It’s the cold eyes that make me weak and terrified to look at you.

It’s the unpredictable words that come out of your mouth like a criminal confessing his actions.

It’s the heat radiating off of your body like a hot lamp that is on all day shining light to show you are not alone.

It’s the sneaky movements that make me uneasy to continue with my life's pleasures.

You are hard to solve.

You are difficult to break when things get tough,

You are more powerful and strong when things go your way.

But you will not get away with your injustice.

For time has a strange way of catching up.

So, whatever where you want to play vicious, dirty, or bitter,

Just know I will come back stronger than before.

This is my oath to you.

Don’t compare yourself to a mastermind when in reality you play games like a child getting away with his mischiefs.

You may act like a criminal, but nothing hurts more than being caught and living with yourself trapped in that misery of loss.
