Your beauty within blossoms,
It radiates from all your bodily features,
Glowing from your facial expression,
Your white teeth making a dramatic appearance,
Your beautiful smile creating a friendly, approachable face,
No matter your insecurities,
Others will fall in love with your confidence,
Gazing into the mirror in disgust,
My conscious yelling,
"Why did you do this to yourself, your gross",
I look away,
I can not withstand the judgement,
The self hate,
I know I'm healthy,
My disorder thinks differently,
I know i'm stronger than this,
I stare myself down,
Repeating the words i long to hear,
"You are beautiful","you are healthy",
Over and over again,
Teaching my conscious to think differently,
Attempting to praise myself,
Scared to fail,
I can be strong,
I will be okay.
#FEELGOOD WRITING PROMPT
For the first time in a long time,
I am truly happy,
I have a positive mindset,
I have a smile on my face,
I have a gorgeous man at my side,
And our precious baby boy in our life,
This is my happiness in a can,
I can finally be myself once again,
My mental state is back on top,
I am really recovering,
Mentally and physically!
I'm truly happy
Ps. This is my positive post, my happiness. Feel free to share your own tag FEELGOOD.
You opened up,
I was there,
When no one else was,
You got attached,
Way too attached,
I felt bad,
I blocked your add,
It was a last resort,
I would never be what you want,
You need professional help,
Not useless words from my mouth,
I cant be your helping hand,
But i cant keep my head in the sand,
I will always be here if you need me,
Just not romantically attached.
Ive been struggling to think of what to say, nothing i say will make it all okay, the horrors the uk has experienced is disturbing and extremely upsetting,
Many of us know people involved and the families who will never see their loved ones again due to one huge disaster!
I am very sorry to everyone who was at the event that had to witness this.
My heart goes out to you all.
The people that did this are sick and twisted leaving the country in fear!
I don't know what else i can say but as a country we are strong and we will beat this!
Yes we argue,
Yes we fight,
But we always cuddle up in bed at night.
Yes we hurt,
Yes we cry,
But we always stay at each others sides.
Yes we smile,
Yes me laugh,
We know we love each other when we look into each others eyes.
You think its fun,
I think its dumb,
You pick up the bottle,
I tidy up,
You awaken angry at the world,
Go to work,
You come home happy,
You pick up the bottle,
I tidy up.
I see you,
Nobody else does,
But i do.
Your all mine,
My best friend,
I can talk to you,
You always listen,
A personal journal.
Your always here,
Stood by my side,
Where are you?
I lay awake,
Lonely and insecure,
In a foetus position,
Huddled closely together,
Without a friendly face insight,
So lost and alone,
Its like your barely there, even at night.
Its all getting too much
Everything is a rush
My chest is crushing
My lungs tighten
My breathing heightens
My face, emotionless
My eyes, empty
I cant cope
I cant be your shoulder
I need someone to be mine
To cry on
I try so hard to keep everyone happy
It never turns out right for my mental health
So why do i bother
i never come away better.
You'd look at me and assume I'm perfectly happy and healthy,
You have no reason to see any different,
However you don't know me at all.
When were walking the streets you make an effort for the elderly and physically disabled,
Yet not a second thought as to how other people make be feeling around you.
Just think thats all i ask before saying stupid phrases like "you don't look ill" or "your not depressed, just a little sad" this isn't helpful.
Think before you speak.
Time flies by,
Our entire lives abide by time,
Yet we seem to disregard it,
Time rules over us,
We check the time millions of times a day,
Yet there still isn't enough time in our day,
We make poor use of the short amount of time allowance we get,
Yet we always complain.
Put your phones down,
Don't look at your watch,
Forget that time exists,
Just for a moment,
The sun seeping through the transparent glass,
Filling the room with warmth,
The room temperature rises,
To a comfortable heat,
I love it.
It relaxes me,
I could sit here all day,
Although id probably get a burnt back,
This is my happy place,
My sanity reflects on me,
Through the window,
I love it.
I wish i was that one person that could make it all okay,
I wish i was that one person who could take it all away,
I really wish i could have been the one to help you out,
But now its too late to give anyone else that chance,
I really wish you were never made to feel this way,
I really wish you'll make it out okay,
And if you do...
I know youll make it big someday!
Here we exist,
Side by side,
Forming along the dotted line,
The miracle of life,
We call it,
The universe just outside.
A reason to smile
Eyes peer through the square glass,
Surveying the beautiful surroundings,
Teeth make an appearance,
The view is breathtaking,
Even if your starring at a brick wall,
The man made substance,
The hard work,
The time, it's incredible,
The moment you realise you have this amazing privilege that allows you to see the beauty around us,
Underneath the horrors,
You can be happy,
You can look out and smile because you realise you are worthy of this experience,
You are worthy to see,
You are worthy to feel,
You are worthy to speak.
Sitting here struggling for inspiration,
Analysing the worth of our nation,
Struggling to come to terms with our methods of termination,
We all want to leave,
Some want to stay,
Where do you leave to when there's no where to go,
We are stuck on this planet (unless your rich) (or an astronaut)
Be happy why you can before the nuclear war,
Footsteps in heaven
In a moment you were gone,
Although we never knew you,
Your forever in our hearts,
Even though we are happy,
We still miss you lots and lots,
The tiny footsteps i never felt,
The heartbeat i never had the chance to hear,
The emptiness within me still aches,
Its okay though as you can protect us from above,
Sorry i couldn't protect you,
Sorry i never showed you love,
I never even knew you existed,
Until you were gone.

One little kiss,
Is true bliss.
The goosebumps rise,
The heartache dies.
The beauty within,
Above the crowd.
The pure lust for one another,
Take it all in,
Its all yours now.
Gold and riches,
Women not b*tches,
Beauty not witches,
Strong not a failure,
Remind yourself of that,
Not a twat,
I am happy as a matter of fact,
I love pussy cats,
But more would be hell,
Maybe one or two,
In a few years or so,
Either way do what makes you happy,
No one else.
Filtered blue skies,
Blemished with clouds,
Hiding the sun,
Threatening rain upon us,
The room darkens,
Lights turned on,
So cold and miserable on the outside,
Warm and safe on the inside,
Hot coco at hand,
Brownies in the other,
This is happiness,
My simple happiness,
What is yours?
Worthy of life
Out of luck,
Out of mind,
Out of energy,
Im out of luck, i have nothing.
You no longer think of me, why would you.
Im completely out of energy, always tired.
What is the point, you may ask yourself.
Well you are the point,
You are worthy of yourself,
You are worthy of life,
You may be out of hope,
Life isnt done with you yet,
You are wanted,
Why i write.
When im alone, my thoughts spiral out of control.
I need an escape, someone to talk to.
I put pen to paper. I write whatever is im my head.
I talk to myself.
Reason with myself.
Ask myself why do i feel like this.
Once its all in my journal, ill re read it.
Make sense of my thoughts.
Analise my feelings.
I will be calmer.
I will be okay.
In and out,
Stop your rolling tears,
Even if its just an attempt,
Someone so beautiful,
Should never be allowed to feel so alone,
You are not alone,
You have pen and paper,
Your words are your best friend,
Allow them to show themselves,
Let the words flow freely,
They will help you out of this,
They will be there when ever you need them,
The beautiful delicacy,
Melting around my tongue,
Sensually giving my mind an orgasm,
My eyes roll back,
Due to the light and creamy taste,
Oh it makes me happy,
The sweetness and serenity overwhelmes me,
All the pain and unhappiness slowly disappear,
The power of chocolate,
Almost as good as sex.
And just like that the light was gone from her eyes.
Her happiness evaporated from within her.
All that was left behind were traumatic memories.
Horrors from her past.
She could never get away no matter how hard she tried.
She tried and tried to the point she just gave up.
Thats whats sad.
Moat people see a park bench but continue walking on by. I see a park bench and welcome the well needed rest. Am i worthy to have the opportunity to see the world from another point of view? I take a seat on the little wooden abandoned bench. And breathe. I close my eyes tell myself i need to prepare for what i'm about to see. I open them. My jaw drops. What is this place? It looks so unhappy and left behind. The streets appear cold and empty. The park seems as if it had been docile for over a decade. The shops have wooden boards over the windows, clearly shut down. The roads littered with garbage. Every wall in the neighborhood graffiti-ed. All trash cans set alight. The small ...
There is magic in everything,
If you look too hard youll see straight through it,
Simple minded is the perfect ability to possess to see the magic around us,
The way the sun appears in the morning right on time then disappears at night,
The way water droplets from the clouds only run downwards,
The way the clouds can be seen moving right infront of your eyes,
How is this not magical?
The way your tooth is taken and replaced with a coin,
Or the way presents appear under the tree at Christmas time,
If you think about it too much youll find the answer but the light in your eyes will be gone,
Some things should just be accepted as they are seen.
