[ [ BROKEN SOUL SERIES ] ]
I'm just a pawn in your continuous game of chess. You'll tear me down, as you tear each other apart. You took away my home when you decide to end it all. You cut off the last string I could hold on to, because I was always just a puppet on your strings.
Doing whatever you want me to do, just so you could look good, like you did good. Living your dreams and throwing away mine just to boost your already over the top pride. Holding on to life just so you don't have to guilt trip me into wanting to leave.
You broke my heart that you're supposed to take care of, since the day I took my first breath. You broke my spirit, you shattered my hope. I realized it will never get better because I will always carry the bond we shared, and with everytime my heart beats, I would be reminded of you.
But I know, in your game for two, whatever happened to me is collateral damage, because I never matter anyway.
I'm told constantly how I need to get out there and date. And honestly, I meet and cross paths with a lot of attractive and different types of men on a daily basis, however, I'm attracted via energy.
If I don't feel a pull or am drawn to someone's energy, then we just remain friends. It's only happened twice in my life.
Baseball cap; faded jeans, bombs going off in my heart when he smiles; it's the loudest explosion; and now all that's left are the stars; shining bright and beautiful, brightening up the moonlit streets; the lies that still sting like alcohol on a fresh wound, still burning from your tormented and twisted ways; yet I keep reaching in, I keep wanting more; maybe I just like the pain; or maybe I can't forget those faded jeans.
@Regrann from @grosvenor_ - Hi there! I am here today to try and raise awareness on dementia, and in particular, Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behaviour. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.
Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of all dementia cases.
Alzheimer's is caused by brain cell death, that happens over a course of time. The total brain size shrinks with Alzheimer's.
Imagine not being able to remember your favourite people, your favourite memories. And not even all at once, but day by day, gradually.
You can check out this website to learn more on Alzheimer's, and also to donate to the cause to end Alzheimer's, www.alz.org or follow their Instagram page @alzassociation.
