Laura Milner Poems
You picked up my heart carelessly and, with a needle and thread your shaking hands decided which path you'd take
I am astounded At the constant ache to preen Failing to carve and hack at a giant cherub reminiscent of a spoiled version of Rubens’ work.
Today I got a perm
i stood on my own in solidarity thinking 'it' was untouchable, unwavering naive, dumbfounded, destroyed
Though woken by incandescent light I pry open my eyes and struggle to hide the shadows beneath.
19 years I cheat at life It swallows me whole without chewing
Picked myself up from the concrete floor, Skin grazed and raw, Knees weak Shadowed surroundings echoed whispers of confusion.
Home Sweet Nothing
For years this house has held sentiment in its palm, Whether we've been panicked, cosy or calm. It's gardens hold memories, bones buried deep in soil Rotten apples falling, the grass a deep royal
Verses of Recollection
If mortar and brick were to inhale and perspire reflect, spit out words, cause conflict, desire, sentiment would be the most discussed topic.
A Fondness For Elephants
A fondness for elephants You ask me to forget. I wait for it to happen, but it has not. Not yet.
Harshly swallow feelings Rip my tongue to shreds Bile rises in my throat As I remember what you said
i am your guilt i am the terror you feel you are my guilt
I can't help but ache the anxiety lingers, systems resume a tired mind with a lack of substance future? a lingering doom
I could try and try but I would never succeed In giving you what it is that you need

You picked up my heart carelessly
and, with a needle and thread
your shaking hands
decided which path you'd take
our fate was already decided
you knew what you planned to do
despite your discomfort
you dragged me around the ankles
and didn't stop until you found something new
i held your hand tight throughout everything
i wanted to believe you'd found new ways
but at the end, just like the start
you proved yourself no different
to back how you were in those days
