Some Days

Some days Most days The mornings spent alone The nights when I got to close To you To myself Are time stamped with The call I never made The text I never sent Goodbye and a whisper Balancing on the lips of a smile The devils snare tying the knot In the cherry stem Blood […]

Journey

I’m remembering some things I wish I didn’t And lots of them involve you The hardest part of moving forward Is seeing how much stronger you are Remembering the pain you went through Remembering what hurt Remembering how dark it was How cold and unending It’s hard getting to the other side And being afraid […]

Constellation

Contemplation amongst constellations Pinpricks of light weakly whisper Through the darkened expanse of this landscape Don’t leave they sign in uneven tones Expansions of the orchestra warming up the melody Ethereal star breeze Hints of the time travelers linger in the lofty tune I see where you’ve been Where you are Where you will be […]

Unearthed

Rapunzel

Rapunzel is what I call her The grief locked in my heart Her hair is not of golden locks It’s been tangled black like crows Her fingers shaped of barbed wire Are ripping through each row She cowers in her tower sell Knees pulled tight above her toes A single sliver lacerates Illumination down her […]

Don’t You, Do You?

Mama don’t you love him Daddy don’t you love her You think I can’t see Standing here Teddy bear dragging beneath my feet They smile Through gritted teeth Thinking only tone is what matters Not the broken soul behind her eyes Not the mist rolling through the space Between their abrasive posture The weight crushing […]

Trust

I thought about you Confused as to why I wasn’t enough Wondering what has made me so undesired I don’t trust you Because I trust you I trust you can love me I trust you can get to know me To care about me I trust you can comfort me

Good

You ask me how I feel And I tell you what I’ve done I’m equating a busy day To a sinking heart A mind full of turmoil But busy is good People like busy They like hearing you have things Things to do A purpose So I’m good then I guess The two parts of […]
