Heartbreaking Moments

0

My world keeps falling apart
Every time I thought I’ve rebuilt it
Over thinking definitely kills
Gradually over time
Migraine of my mind
That seems to never end
Having to feel your heart literally
Breaking, shattering, collapsing
The pain inside, is intense
Its like there’s an erosion of the heart
Wearing away, tearing away
Eventually into nothingness.

Medusa

I am medusa
Beauty became monster
Idolized to being destroyed
Silenced by a patrilineal society
For being a victim in a gruesome way
Shamed violently in a sacred place
Banished by the gods
Condemned to walk the earth
As grotesque and with serpents for a hair
And anyone who gaze upon her
Is forever turned into stone.
