Heart Crushed; Mangled & Mushed

Heart crushed; mangled and mushed.
Worn and torn like the dress of a runaway bride.
But she had no where to hide.
That’s more than I can say;
You would just lie anyway.

Frayed like an old quilt,
Stitched with interwoven patches of guilt.
Forgotten like that old sweater in your closet.
Too embarrassed to be seen wearing your grandmother’s locket.
Why do you hide what’s inside?
This is your wedding day and this is your bride.
Beneath that veil,
You’d surely see, pain, strain, and vanity.
Tears of pearl and eyes of kohl,
Jewelry and tainted souls.
Why did you invite me here?
Into this hellful bliss,
All broken and tattered,
You said I was great.
I thought that it mattered.
I don’t need to prove myself.
Let me leave. Let me breathe.
Inhaling. Exhaling. Repeat.
It’s over now.
If I would have known I would be persona non-grata,
I wouldn’t have stepped down that aisle, no matter
What you had said or what you had pleaded,
Heart crushed; mangled and mushed.
You would just lie.
I guess that’s what you needed.



About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
