Dearest Me (First Place)

There is a lot you’ve overcome.
You need to continue being strong.
I know life seems to have a way
of getting you down, but
you must stand your ground.
Continue making the most of
the life you’ve been given.
No matter the issues risen.
You have beat your worst,
bullying and anorexia.
You have been through,
hell on Earth.
It’s time you knew your worth.
Stop kicking up the dirt.
Put a smile on your face.
Continue your race, and
when you cross the finish line,
you’ll have won first place.

FOCUS AND WIN

Like a flower caught in the rain.
       Your petals wont always be the same.
               Sometimes they feel the pain.
        So, lean your stem towards the light.
And, your future will always remain bright.

The darkness seems as though
it will stay.
Whilst I’m left wishing, it will go away.
Hope gets me through, the day.
Praying for the light,
to shine my way.
I need the goodness,
to scare off the bad.
I need the light life,
I’ve always wished to have.

Life is like a box of chocolates.
A wide selection of unknown treats.
You never know what your tastebuds may meet.
Some may be sour.
And, some may be sweet.
But, each one, in the long run,
will definitely be a treat.

You overcome the bad.
And, welcome the tasty.
But, you will forever remember the bad,
greatly.
That is not a negative,
you learn from your mistakes.
But, isn’t that just,
what makes our life so great.

Photo challenge
.
One moment you were there,

and the next, you were not.

It’s almost as if, you’ve completely forgot.

Now you’ve left me alone,

in this world to rot.

I lost myself in that love of ours.

I wish I didn’t need your comforting arms.

But, clearly I do.

Subdued.

All thanks to your powerful charms.

Do the difficult things.

It’s easy to shrug, and say
“I’m fine.”
Maybe, it’s easier to pretend
everything’s alright.
But, sometimes in life
you have to do the difficult things,
like admitting what’s on your mind.
And, accept the support it brings.

The First Month Of Love

Little giggles,
when I mention your name.
A cheesy smile,
knowing I get to see you again.
Clammy hands,
when I ask what’s your game.
A sigh of relief,
when all you say, is
I love you.

I meet your family, and
you meet mine.
Awkward at first, but
it all worked out fine.
You hold my hand, as
I hold yours.
When all you say, is
I love you.

We arrange to stay over,
for just one night.
We share our first kiss,
with fireworks in sight.
My mind went blank.
The butterflies won.
When all you say, is
I love you.

You Make Me

You mesmerise me.
When I’m down, you pick me up.
When I’m lost, you find me.
When I’m lonely, you sit with me.
When I’m sad, you make me smile.
You complete me.

We have our ups and downs.
Sometimes even push each-other around.
But, you make me who I am.
And, I dread the day,
you’ll no longer be around.

Mood swings

Heart is racing,
feelings raging,
emotions pacing,
out of control.

Head is spinning,
smile fading,
soul breaking,
out of control.

You can break me,
just as you make me,
leaving me sad,
and insecure.

I know I get angry,
please do not blame me,
I am too broken,
to take anymore.

It’s crazy,
I love you,
that part is true,
just stand by me, and
pick me up off of the floor.

Be Sound

Waking up lost.
Missing out.
Unknowing of what you’ve got.
Painting on a smile.
Fooling everyone.
But, once in a while,
someone notices.
They see through your make-up.
They look past what you’ve made up.
Offering you a smile; a real one,
and a nice, warm hug.

Your body slumbers into theirs.
Thanking them,
for showing you the life you’ve already won.
Look around.
See the world through fresh eyes.
And, be sound.

Thank You Lettrs!

I thought I'd write this letter as I feel like I owe Lettrs a huge thank you! I found out a few days ago that a poem of mine is going to be published in an anthology! I have to say i would have never have had the confidence to even submit a poem to a publishing company if it wasn't for lettrs! I had never posted my work anywhere until i discovered the lettrs app, since I have started using this app my confidence in my own writing has grown massively. The wonderful community, the likes and comments are uplifting and inspiring, pushing me to become more confident and post more and more, leading me to my first publication! So Thank You Lettrs!

Posh Princess

Give my mind a rest.
Allow me to think and build our nest.
I know i'm no better than anyone else,
though I have to try,
try to better myself.
I refuse to watch the world pass by,
without taking every opportunity that comes my way.
Learning where ever I can,
even without your supportive hand.

Posh Princess you once called me,
for choosing to better myself and study.
But can you blame me?
I just want the best for our kids.
For once I am doing something,
that makes me feel like i exist.

You continue pushing, as if i'll stay by default.
The world does not work like that,
if I must, I will walk out!
You take me for granted.
Lacking great fear.
As one day yo...

Infestation Of The Mind

Constant thoughts inside my head,
The angel and the devil,
That perch on my already heavy shoulders,
I can no longer tell the difference,
I have no one to tell me the difference,
Dragging myself into a downward spiral,
Screaming at the infestations,
Blaming the two of them for my thoughts,
Unknowing whether these thoughts are good or evil,
Unknowing whether these thoughts are false or a reality check,
Quickly giving up yelling at myself,
Quickly giving up on fighting back,
Disappearing into the black, empty space,
Retreating to a place where i hoped was safe.

Completely In Love (4 Years)

It all started with the drunken midnight texts,
The welcomed butterflies always present,
Nine hour phone calls, made you seem near,
Then the sad goodbyes always made reality reappear,
Nervous as hell, we shared our first kiss,
Whilst watching the exploding fireworks,
Without disconnecting our lips,
Two of us against the world,
Completely in love.

More and more time spent together,
Goodbyes became even harder,
A sad unfortunate event took place,
But we stayed strong,
We continued standing side by side,
The butterflies soon developed into a beautiful baby boy,
Small disagreements evolved into arguments,
Yet we stood by one another,
Completely ...

Bright lights

Bright lights,
Blinding my eyesight,
Creating havoc,
In my mindset,
Disturbing my peace,
Causing a migraine,
There is no escape,
No five minute breaks,
There is no where to run,
Im vulnerable,
Drying out in the sun.

Taunting Me

You don’t make it easy to forget,
You never have,
Put yourself in my shoes for once,
And allow me to take the lead,
Of my own life,
Without your haunting words,
Taunting me.

A friendship with fear

The huge wide world,
Can be scary,
Dangerous even.

You must not fear it,
Embrace it.
Welcome it.

With fear comes,
Power, and
Knowledge.

Not everything frightening,
Is to be,
Feared.

Lonely Reflexes

I kick and I punch,
Pushing you,
Further and further,
Away.
Beyond repair.

I walk away,
Over and over,
Again.
Always looking back.

Punishing myself,
Daily,
It’s heartbreaking.
You always return.

You always come back,
Always there,
Whenever I need you.
Forever mine.

You Still Can

No-one said it would be easy,
Please don’t hide away completely,
Let your voice be heard,
Teach those that need to learn.

If you allow yourself to run,
You will be forgotten,
Amongst those that ran.

They never found their strength,
But you still can.

Somedays

Somedays are profoundly worse than others,
Somedays your bed is your home,
A dangerous sanctuary,
One you do not wish to escape from.

Other days, you want to get dressed,
Get up and explore the world,
Putting your face on,
Ready to front life head on.

Remembering that although it isn’t easy,
You have to try.

When the earth that surrounds you crumbles
You need to hurry to the ground
Gather the crumbling dirt
Between your fingers
Pressing the newly formed dust
Back together
As if it meant everything
Stand up
And hold yourself together.

She was beautiful,
But untouchable,

You couldn’t stare for too long,
You couldn’t even get too close,

Depression has the power
to get the best of you
To take over
To rule your life
You can not find the way out
You keep searching
Giving up hope
Bit by bit
A never ending circle

When will it end?

Its time you go,
Confusion clear in his eyes,
