They Say | Unknown Artist Captured by @ValiantFab

They say love casts out fear
but fear cast out my love.
Now I’m sitting in the rain and thinking how we fell apart.
I see you with your children and your loved one.
I’m in awe.
I’m thinking how the hell I messed that up and I’m appalled.
I thought about apologizing…
didn’t have the heart.
From time to time when we collide I don’t know where to start.
A “how you been?” seems fraudulent.
I seen it from afar
and small talk with a distant lover doesn’t mesh at all.

Strong | Artwork by @Guidovanhelten Captured by @Jacmoo.

You used to tell me to be strong.
Be wary cuz things go wrong.
Never worry. Stay real and live long.

But you never prepared me to lose you.
Now I’m looking, I’m desperate to find truth.
Now I’m tripping.
Conflicted.
I might lose
my mind.
Try to flip it.
I fidget.
Tears run down my eyes.
You don’t care.
Not a tidbit.
You were a passerby.
Tell me,
do you have feelings?
Are you just made of lies?

Together | Artwork by @Dface_official Captured by @Pixelatedstreets

We belong together. I know this. For sho’ it’s
been a mighty long time and I’m hella nervous
but I think it’s time since our love’s hotter than a furnace.
I promise I’ll provide cuz you’re deserving.
Baby, you don’t tarnish.
You’re always golden
garnished with a side of emotion.
Outspoken.
I just need your love.
Need your mind.
Want your body.
And you don’t need your clothes where we’re going.
Just come find me.

Visions |Artwork by @Sillysullys Captured by @Finehood

Since I left you I can’t lie I’m feeling blue.
It’s for the best, boo,
but I didn’t want to choose.
Now I’m haunted by the visions of your body against mine
and I really can’t decipher if I miss you or my mind
is playing tricks on me to try and make me press rewind.
I see you vividly like almost every single night
but that’s just in my dreams and those are things I just can’t fight.
I wonder why?

Hell | Artwork by Hell & Trafik Captured by @Ninaqueral

We all live our own versions of hell.
We only differ in the way we play the hands that we’re dealt.
We succumb or we rise.
We topple or grind.
We should never live in fear from what resides in our mind.
I find you seek the truth in every line you put to your nose.
You tell yourself that things are changing while you unroll the note
but everytime things start a-flaming you go back down that road.
I don’t know what else to tell ya I ain’t tell ya befo’. You always say that you’re just going through hell
but the hell you put your mama through is unparalleled.
Farewell.

Draped In Red | Artwork by @Albfs Captured by @Estorninos1

To the angel draped in red…
I’ll give you all your heart desires.

I would serenade you daily.
I’d crawl through a deadly fire
just to see you for a second
and tell you just how I’m feeling.

I would smother you with roses and make you feel like you’re dreaming.

And no one in my life could treat me quite as right as you.
I think I may have found a wife. I may have stumbled ‘pon a jewel.

And I don’t think you sense how real my intentions are now
but you’ll see it much clearer when you still shine in a crowd.
