At first I started this poem with—
You left your mark on me
Like a footprint in sand
You left your mark on me
Like a footprint in wet concrete
For it will take more than a wave
To wipe it away...
I have a lot to say but
I can't phase it And so many ideas But can't make it To many emotions
but empathy thoughts to play with How can I dream of a life
where most love are fake and
Having hopes and ...
I've never been that girl
Or at least I didn't used to be...
But lately it feels needed
Maybe it's some inner most feeling
That I've been suppressing
I'm really not too sure
Like a therapist once told...
Step Step Step
Soft breeze against my skin
Hair swaying but still staying
Slowly moving past the trees
Step Step Shuffle Step
Wind is picking up Glasses are fogging up
Hair blocking vision
It’s like time stands still for just a moment, You can’t quite grasp what has happened
Yet your mind has managed to process it all
Your body refuses to cooperate as your
Heart begins to race and your ...
Why can’t I change the path
That’s has consumed me?
Why can’t I change the outcome That the future holds for me?
I change my steps On this bumpy road,
I bear the weight Of this heavy load,
I raise my ...
It started off as nothing, a mere hi when passing by
Then realizing you’re not too different,
As you talk more and more, words spilling out
Suddenly you’re by their side giggling and smiling
Pain grips tightly holding fast suffocating.
Tears dropping from closed eyes.
Memories flooding a broken heart.
A year has passed and yet it was just yesterday that you went away.
Sleepless nights fac...
The moon peeks between parted clouds
Does it know my secrets?
Does it know the thoughts are getting loud?
It’s shine dims as the clouds settle down
“I feel the same as you
How do we go about?”
Depression can be hard,
It can make you feel like you are always on guard.
Depression can make you feel sad,
It can also make you feel mad.
Although some say it is only sadness,
But it is a mental ill...
Fairy lights above my head
Sitting high above my bed
Twinkling in the darkened room
Pastel pinks and blues bloom
Dozing off as they shine
I hear a faint and tiny whine
In the corner of my eye
A tiny f...
Why can't I stay alone?
I'm always taking flight.
Would like to stay at home,
But still go out at night.
Don't even have a heart;
There's just an empty space—
I fill it with your wine—
Now I'm redress...
Sweetheart, what can I say
that I haven't said before
it seems to move in circles
trying to get through your door
It was so rough from the very start
it seems we never really stood a chance...
I am a daughter.
I am a granddaughter.
I am a daughter in law.
i am a granddaughter in law.
I am a sister. I am a sister in law.
I am an Aunt. I am a niece. I am a wife. I am a step mother. I am a fri...
As my personal witching hour approaches
My early 4:48 psychosis
My breath comes thick
Not with memory exactly
But more a reflexive dread
A compulsion perhaps
Sometimes I sing
My song to...
Dear 16, I hear you loud and clear
Even though I am older and not your peer Your age is significant
And so are you Your thoughts are significant And so are you Your feelings matter And so do you Your ...
I am only sixteen
I have no stress
To you I am nothing
I do nothing but complain
I am annoying
I don’t understand
Why do you believe these things?
I am only 16
Every day I fight for my life
I am nothi...
No one's the same.
No one knows everything.
No one sees the world the same way.
We're all different.
But do a lot of people accept it?
They should, but they won't.
Some people go down a path,
