Absence, poetry written by RhymeRula at Spillwords.com



written by: RhymeRula



I’m trying my best to brace myself

from sinking into a black hole of regret

Acknowledging your presence as a catalyst to times filled with serenity

You can remain oblivious but I can’t help resist the urge to

leave them on repeat these days


Standing still as I tear apart every script

As we return to action lighting one up

Watching our smoke tango with winters frozen wind

An ascending aroma introducing itself to a benevolent night sky


You’re no longer around so I’ll remain at a distance reminiscing

as an invisible companion to your guarded lies

waiting for your promising return

only for me to break through and turn your defenses off with my undisputed truths,

Finding it difficult to compose myself since your absence

Overwhelmed by the silence, but I found solace and motivation in writing

In turn finally discovering myself in the process



I find words are my specialty and it has been ever since I took a creative writing class when I was attending community college. I perceive poetry as strength of mine and it allows me to be creative off the cuff sometimes without even writing anything down and that’s why I find it a pleasurable hobby. I create poems out of topics that spontaneously come into my mind, and I think it’s helped me not only become efficient with my writing but getting my point across. Anyways I digress if you’re into poetry and storytelling check out what I have to offer and hopefully it’ll make you think, smile, or just appreciate this type of art.
