Flicked the Light

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 melt 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 used to be in turned dangerously rotten because 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 anguish 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 how cold you would be 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 watching the jury decide what the verdict for you will be.

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


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

Your words that have left your mouth have vanished from my mind like carbon monoxide in the room.

Your scent that has intoxicated me and lingers my nostrils like the pouring rain at night.

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

Your image that I only dreamt of has disappeared from my memory like a closed case that has not been solved.


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 upon my daily activities.


You are hard to solve.

You are not going to break when things get tough,

You will be more powerful and strong when things go your way.

But you will not get away with this.

Yes, I am one person, but fighting your demons is something I can beat you at.


So, whatever where you want to play: vicious, dirty, clean, 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 never getting caught for what they did.

You may act like a criminal, but nothing hurts more than being caught.
