You said you’d never forget me.
And I am like a star
And like all stars
My light shines bright
Even though I’m long gone.

In my window
It’s always spring
And the flowers are always beautiful and alive.
It’s a little game
My mother taught me
And I know it well.
Never see the evil
Never feel it
Only see the love.

Don’t push me over my edge
For you don’t know
What a thin line I tread
Over life and death.
I’m tired of this life
But like a warrior
I walk the thin line between death and life
And I endure.

I have so many things.
I never knew how poor I was
Till I missed friendship.
Till I missed your laughter
And a full house.
Till I missed love.
So I fill my house
With things
Hoping they can replace
The empty spaces
Of my heart
And I replace happiness
With a fake smile
And a glass of wine.

I am light and you are darkness.
I tried and tried
To live in the darkness
But my light always shone bright
I couldn’t
I tried many times
To turn it off
But it always illuminated
After all
And I couldn’t
A light in a very dark
Solitary place.

Rainy day.
And I have no words
Only feelings
As I watch the rain fall
Hard and unyielding.
It reminds me of the times
I have cried for you.

Learn to be hard
Because nobody
Really likes sweet.
They’ll say they do
Then walk all over you.

I laid with you
Till I was old.
I gave you everything I had.
And now, we are both spent.
I still have tricks
Up my sleeve
And I think you still do too.
Love never grows old.

Poetry books, scattered thoughts
And it hurts to breath.
It creeps up on you
This thing that takes hold of u
And sucks life and happiness
Out of you.
You can’t quite put your finger on it...
Something, someone is missing.
It just hurts.
And you feel bad for feeling bad
Cause there are still things
To be grateful for...
Like poetry books and scattered thoughts.

I’m loving myself.
I’m so in love
With me.
I’m no longer stupid.
I’m no longer too fat
Or too skinny.
I’m me
And I’m just enough
I finally found me.

Where is home?
I don’t know anymore.
I can’t find my way.
It used to be warm here
But everyone is gone.
You are too.
All that remains are memories
That have grown cold.
I can’t place anyone anymore.
I’ve lost my way home.

Why would you know
What I’m going through?
Why would you care?
If you only pretend
At loving me.;
And it’s a word
You use so sparingly.
And an emotion you throw away
So carelessly.

Be careful with my heart.
For it beats savagely for you.
Tread with caution
To trample it.
What you do to it today
Could revert to you
On the morrow,
As you too whisper...
Be careful with my heart.

Don’t think the things
That hurt you
Don’t hurt me,
They do.
I pretend that they don’t.
I pretend to be strong.
Because only the strong survive
And I must too.

I was in love with the idea
Of you.
In my mind,
I was in love so deeply.
You pretended to feel my love
But you never shared it.
And I’m here traveling far
And going no where.

I have no words.
A writers block it seems.
When it comes to confessing,
I am hurting and i am lonely,
I have no words for that.
I can’t let you read
The silent parts of my heart.
I can’t let you read
All of my vulnerabilities.
I’m drying up.
I have no words.

But I couldn’t find anything
To eat.
Poor, poor pitiful me.

I was brought up with stern look
And quick punishment
Because I was there.
I was brought up
With abandon.
I was brought up to stand tall
Carry on
And hide the hurt.
I’ve always been very good
At that.

God made the melodies
That an artist creates.
Only God could make melodies
So divine.
God made your eyes
Shine so bright.
Only God could make a man
So sublime.

What would life be like
If I had no ears to hear?
What would life be like
If I could never hear the
Melodies of life?
What would life be like
If I could never hear
The sweet sounds of children
At play?
What would life be like
If I could never hear the sound
Of your voice whispering
My name?

First impression.
A smack of the senses.
You are smitten.
You are in love.
Last impression.
Your back as you walk away.
My eyes as they watch you go.

There is always a first time
For you to venture.
Change your life.
There is always a first time
To reinvent yourself.
There is always a first time
For fresh new hope,
Of trusting that your travels
Lead to new green pastures.
There’s always a first time...
Believe.

So many years
And I still can’t find myself.
So I’ll raise my cup of cheer.
That’s the only thing
That makes me feel good
These days;
And toast to what once was.
