I sit in the loud silence of my mind Because whatever we aren’t saying, we’re thinking
My mouth is a loaded gun,
Unaware of the damage it can cause It’s easier to let my thoughts eat me from within Th...
I find myself asking what's the point in my head quite often
I never have an answer for myself, just reasons to keep asking
My family is a reason to keep asking
For all the love and effort they shower...
growing up is not growing old. growing up is growing wise.
youth fades like your favourite tee that you wear to bed. wisdom lasts and grows. it is the seed that you planted long ago, let it grow.
My daughter's inner voice
When mommy hurts she cannot play with me.
When mommy cries I give her big hugs and rub her back.
Mommy lies on the floor and turns over so I can’t see her crying.
But I want ...
Have you ever seen rain fall on a body of water
One drip creates a ripple When the rain thickens the ripples intercept Causing a little storm on the once calm surface Rain takes a clear serene puddle ...
Every drop that falls from the sky
Is a drop that has fallen from my eye
To let you know that I’m sad too
And I still can feel the same as you. Every leaf that falls from a tree
Is a story telling of ...
I always thought that
all the trauma that has
happened to me was somehow
my own fault. like when
my dad was doing drugs or the
times he tried to kill himself;
and when he fell off a balcony
I know nobody is waiting for me
at the end of this journey.
I've been alone since the start.
I died inside a long time ago.
something has been missing there
and that missing thing is you.
you forgot a...
My skin turns yellow and my veins black
my head is pounding my eyes roll back and I can see you
get out of my head
get out of my head
I have no mouth
but I must scream
my body shakes
My stomach aches
The whir of the tires upon the road
The hum of the engine Can only be heard when one is In this headspace…
That headspace where silence screams
Where the world is moving around you
The Boy in the window.
Is looking for you
From the pain, you inflicted on him
The boy in the window
Looks familiar to the man in the mirror
Look at your boy
He tries to reach for you...
Red like our beating hearts
Fast like our love and dreams
Old like our fights
Small like our truth
I live through your Monte Carlo
I will never forget
I know you will never forget
I just hope you can ...
Look at me
Close your eyes
When I close my eyes you appear like a ghost
When I close my eyes, every wrong word I have ever said to you is played back
When I close my eyes, I can feel every one of your...
It couldn't take a thousand poems
It couldn't take all the words
ordered in just the right way
It couldn't take the songs of the birds or the smiles of flowers
It couldn't take perfection from...
You fill me up
You fill me with butterflies and daylight
You glow in the dark
and you do everything so slowly
your eyes look at me and they tell me the time of day...
I write for you
to right for you
who taught me, you
who taught me what is true
from the mountain tops
to beneath the rocks
I sing a beautiful song of sorrow
I write because you once told me
I am no po...
I've got a lot of things on mind.
Some not so pleasant things on my mind.
Things that make me crazy.
Things that make me cry inside.
Things that make me die inside
Things that make me want to hide.
I gave you a piece of my wishbone
For wishes to me that were unknown
It was white and small, but mighty
Three wishes given but you were thirsty
The marrow was cracked and abused
The love and hate was ...
