Instagram Quotes By Poet Cindy Cherie On Heartbreak

"Stories weigh heavy in his eyes, cinnamon tales of cities I've never been. Fragments of moments I cease to exist. It's curious is it not? The pull of human connection? Part of me knows he'll never be mine, the other wants to travel back in time and lay alongside him in all the places he ever felt lonely."

— Cindy Cherie

God Counts Tears

Instagram Quotes By Poet Cindy Cherie On Heartbreak

"I once heard that when we die our life flashes before us at the speed of light; every moment; every breath; every tear, smile, failure, success, hope, dream, regret. Not only do we re-live our entire existence in the blink of an eye but experience it with exquisite magnitude the impact we made on the lives of those we graced. Or so I've heard...

Is that not the most harrowing act of poetic justice?

If you, my love, are subjected to but an ounce of the pain you put me through may God have mercy on your soul."

— Cindy Cherie

A Thousand Words

Instagram Quotes By Poet Cindy Cherie On Heartbreak

"I found a picture of us, collecting dust in the bottom of that drawer I no longer open today — we look so happy. 

'A picture says a thousand words,' I remember you saying, lips pressed to my cheek. Looking at it now, you were right. Sometimes they're just all lies."

— Cindy Cherie

Instagram Quotes By Poet Cindy Cherie On Heartbreak

"In a rare moment of trust she let down the safety of her walls, looked into his soul and saw what she been trying so hard to ignore. Not knowing what the future held silently she let go and prepared herself for the free fall. Slowly she outstretched her arms offering her broken heart in the palm of her hands. 

'Here,' she whispered, '...take it.'"

— Cindy Cherie

Part Of You

Instagram Quotes By Poet Cindy Cherie On Heartbreak

"I still have the shirt you left here that night I slept in your arms — it smells of broken promises. Sometimes, when that ache in my chest rises up and spills down my cheeks I put it on and remember what it feels like to be all wrapped up in a part of you."

— Cindy Cherie

Demise

Instagram Quotes By Poet Cindy Cherie On Heartbreak

"All I knew was his touch evoked a feeling within me I could not measure, draining every last drop of restraint, I possessed, from the hollow of my bones. It's true what they say — when you know, you know. 

I felt that moment, felt the words sear into my skin — He is going to be your demise.

— Cindy Cherie

Instagram Quotes By Poet Cindy Cherie On Heartbreak

"He smiled and instantly I felt the hole in my chest. Oblivious to the power he possessed he walked on by, taking a piece of me with him. I couldn't help but wonder how many hearts he unknowingly collected, every time that smile of his stole another one."

— Cindy Cherie

Miss The Most

Instagram Quotes By Poet Cindy Cherie On Heartbreak

"When they ask me what I miss the most I always say home. It's not a lie. Until I walk off the sweet smell of nostalgia, these feet of mine will always yearn to return to their resting place, irrelevant is the fact that it is always with you."

— Cindy Cherie

Who The Heart Beats For

Instagram Quotes By Poet Cindy Cherie On Heartbreak

"He runs his fingertips of my walls like they're the most exquisite thing he's ever seen. It's ironic is it not? Who the heart beats for?

I hide my vulnerabilities from him not from fear of falling but because I know one day I will. 

And I know what that feels like; to watch the one you ache for fall like rain and not feel a single drop, to finally see all the love inside them and realise it was never meant for you."

— Cindy Cherie

Fading

Instagram Quotes By Poet Cindy Cherie On Heartbreak

"You found me in my dreams, again, last night.

'Colour me in,' I pleaded, placing a paintbrush in your hand, 'I'm fading.'"

— Cindy Cherie
