I often dream of my grandmother
She sits in a rocking chair, Trying to utter words that can’t escape.
Her hair crowned in gold
White like stars
Hair that licks up to touch the sky,
To touch heaven.
This is my air
Yeah it’s chemicals
Yeah it’ll kill me in a few decades
But it’s been there when I needed it
Been there when I was down
Been there when I couldn’t think straight
With every inhale I get...
Sometimes, in the night
I sit and ponder life
Like, would anybody notice, if I wasn't alright?
If tomorrow I was gone
Without a single trace
Would there even be a tear, streaming down your face?
The battle with yourself after heartbreak is the hardest Your view of yourself has been tarnished No one to be there through the screams Only place you feel comfort is in your dreams Repeating again a...
The fire crackles on, smoke dancing in the breeze; my journey halted by the sudden appearance of the blizzard. Currently, I’m sleeping by the fire; it’s too cold otherwise. I became stranded in this c...
I hate that I gave so many parts of myself away like they were cheap knock off jewelry to all the wrong person who didn't deserve to see me so exposed and vulnerable. I hate having been told "I love y...
I’m suffocating under the weight of this crushing emptiness
that I feel caressing my fractured soul.
What can I do to finally be free
of this horrid hell?
With each breath I feel myself slowly fade aw...
Have you ever felt a fear grip your heart
That felt like you'd been hit by a dart
When people stare at me It's all I can do not to flee
Eyes make my skin crawl
Never felt so small
It's like walls clos...
My life has been one learning experience after another. The most powerful one was the loss of my dear mother. I mourned my Queen and solid rock.
We were left with so many memories of pastime shared. T...
Yes, I asked for it.
I asked for it in an evening conversation
warped in naive empathy.
I asked for it in your conniving voice
lacing words of a dying marriage,
begging for sympathy.
I asked for it in...
Kill me with your silence.
Watch my cries leak from my veins.
Destroy me with your neglect.
See the crack in my heart when it's dead.
Bury me in your indifference.
Notice my body become a cold, harden...
Another bullet hits my skin.
Now there's a separation,
Barricades over the grass,
all of us sleeping in the dust
with mirages overlying our desperate regrets.
Am I blue? Am I white? Am I crimson?
A Heart Turned Hard
A life of innocence,
swept through the world's cruelty.
What once was pure became bitter.
Eyes that once were oblivious to fault,
was beaten by sharp tongues
and mercilessly pointi...
I’m running out of time Counting the stars
In the dark night sky
But then again It’s not stars
But a sky of ashes Ashes of dreams Ashes of hopes Ashes of all I e...
I can't stop thinking
I try to ignore my thoughts
But they take over my life
And I can't find the time
To stop and breathe
Every part of me
Seems to be sinking
I feel like I'm falling
The anger When they are gone you’ll be angry
You’ll feel like bringing out the bottle of brandy How could they leave you alone? How could they leave at this time?
You’ll beg and beg to get them back, ...
Oh how lucky we are to still be breathing knowing there is a fire burning our insides. The smallest parts of our bodies craved to be touched with the sweetest words, Physicality never meant anything. ...
