Poetry of Stephanie Bennett Henry, Uncategorized


Always love writing with Nicole from The Lithium Chronicles ❤️

Nicole Lyons

A collaboration with the beautiful and brilliant Stephanie-Bennett-Henry

He was intense.

A drug.

And I couldn’t get enough,

no matter how much of him

I consumed.

He was potent and powerful

and he ruined me.

And I yearned to ruin.

I kept going back for more.

I swear if I were to rip

myself open,

it wouldn’t be blood

that poured out of me.

It would be him.

© Nicole Lyons

I know him.

My fix.

I wanted to spend hours

just breathing him in and

holding my breath long enough

for every organ to say his name,

the way I did.

He put butterflies in my bones

and turned my heart into an

inferno. I can still feel the

butterflies swirling through

the flames, calling his name,

but my heartbreak calls him

the one that got away.

  1. Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand so much about
    this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something.
    I think that you just could do with some percent to pressure the message home a little bit, however other than that, this is magnificent blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
