Maybe I just need to clear my head
Meet someone and laugh instead Of always distancing myself From the crowd and getting help I'm at a point where I agree I no longer want to be held down by the thing...
Quiet on all fronts and as for me a silent storm. The silence is not evil but beautiful and vibrant in colors. A beauty that is unspoiled and unspoken. The silence is not a season nor are there reason...
who do you wanna be
its the question you always hear when you are a kid
but how? when you are so small how do you know
but that question always come back when you get older also
do you wanna be that p...
I know you've been hurt by someone else. I can tell by the way you carry yourself.
If you let me, here's what I'll do:
Simply take care of you. Somewhere, somehow, someway.
I wish it would be the day ...
A storm takes place in my chest
Then finally It rains And my heart is watered
I prayed for flowers this time
For I had to drown my heart to kill the weeds that grew here last time
My tongue decides to...

I never knew how commonly common
How common was I
Dusty, cracked gravel roads
Bringing about my playful imagination
Coupled with tiny rocks stomping
Softly through ...
WHEN I NEED AN ESCAPE
I FIND MYSELF AT THE GYM
I PICK UP THE WEIGHTS
TURN MY MUSIC ON
AND ZONE OUT
ALL THE THOUGHTS THAT CONSUME JUST GOES AWAY SOMEHOW
THE PAIN FROM MY EVERYDAY LIFE
THE FEELINGS INSI...
I slap, pinch, and get really mad at myself when I do the most crappy things. Like "hey dummy why do you keep doing that?" I always want my flowers to bloom, but apparently each flower requires its un...
I know that I haven’t been posting lately.
Well, I’ve been busy.
Being a Mum, studying Korean, and battling my weird Idiopathic Angioedema.
When you have swelli...
Do you feel it too?
That ever growing feeling of missing something?
The happiness you once had begging to expand its horizons
A look out to the water.
Full of seemingly endless po...
Slow your roll, take a deep breath, exhale.
I know right to look around! Did you ever think you'd live someone that makes you this happy? We should go for a walk,
smile at people today, be helpful, ev...
This Vibe is Yours
Let the world see what they want to see
You strut your catwalk and make them believe
That our beauty has no bounds or limits
Yes we have more but were still sticking with it
Where to begin,
you're 22 living in a new place.
Surrounded by a city of wonder and dreams. This is what you wanted right?
Of course, but what in life was I meant to do?
I know it wasn't sitting at a ...
When tears slide down our face like rain on a window, it's like the sun has stopped shining and the clouds are storming. We each have the heart of an angel and with that heart, it is our strongest par...
“The Woman in me wants to hurt you like you’ve hurt me.
The Woman in me wants to create havoc in your life just as you’ve done to me.
The Woman in me wants sweet revenge.
The Woman in me wants you to ...
She comes to me in dreams and visions and at times She comes in person to dance with me,
and bring me comfort and rest bite from my task given me from above.
She teaches me long forgotten truths and s...
There was a time when all it was was a smile, a note, a letter, a glimpse across a room, an actual date, a thought, an actual intention to be someones love...
Now, it is aggressive.
Everyone is insecu...
Here I am again...
Using words that are quite mean (blunt).
Gasping for my own sanity to come out.
Wondering if my life will ever be my own...
Trapped in my own skin. I just want to be my own person.
