I spat evil words at her,
as though she meant nothing.
I made her feel unworthy,
when in reality she was too good for me.
I made my voice boom loud,
to seem superior,
to keep her bound.
I scared her.
Yet she still stuck around.
She would never find a fault,
she would make up my excuses.
Blaming herself.
Destroying herself.
Knowing it was all on me.
She would forgive me,
time and time again.
Look at what I've done.
At what I've created.
A burden I cannot bare.
Tomorrow she will awaken.
For me not to be there.
She will be sad at first.
One day she will see.
I didn't leave to hurt her.
I left to set her free.

What I need from you

I long for the day when you hold my hand.
Because that is what I need from you.
When you pull me close and tell me I have nothing to fear,
is the day my lungs will be able to breathe again.
Lost in anxiety unable to leave my bed.
Drag me out of the comforting duvet,
and comfort me instead.
The day my bed is no longer my safe place,
is the day your shoulder becomes it.
My tears soaking your shirt instead of my pillow.
Revealing to you my over imaginative mind,
Rather than holding it all inside.
That is what I need.
That is what I need from you.

Flowers are most beautiful when the rain is regular,
but not constant.
When the sun glows brighter,
but not blinding.
Our lives are the same.
We benefit from small downpours.
We shine beneath rays of sunlight.
We go though yearly cycles,
where somethings are supposed to never change.

I did scream.

I screamed.
I know I screamed.
But you could not hear me.
No one could hear me.
My silent screams,
echoed in my brain,
unable to get out.
My mouth opened, but
my throat remained shut.
Refusing to let out my fear.
I needed to scream.
I swear I did, but
my lungs closed up.
I did scream!

It’s Okay. Rocks are made to be tough.

Our love is like a tidal wave.
I am the wave, you are the rocks.
Continuously crashing into one another.
No matter how bad the damage,
our lips always return to touch.
Bodies colliding, much too rough.
It’s okay, rocks are made to be tough.
The water splashing up at you,
slapping you in the face.
When the ocean get’s angry,
the rocks just sit and wait;
for the storm to be over.
Our love is like a tidal wave.
Beautiful yet, dangerous,
perfectly safe for us.

What is poetry?

Poetry is the good and bad
                the misunderstood
                the laughed at.
Poetry is the notions I make
                to make myself a
                better person day
                by day.
Poetry is the heartbreak and
                sorrow, the
                will I see tomorrow.
Poetry is mesmerising for the
                mind, beauty
                within the lines.
Poetry is the special link in
                my life.

Listen with all your soul.

Listen to her when she speaks.
She does not speak often, but
when she does,
she speaks with all her soul.
So listen with all of yours.
If you do not,
you will miss hear her.
Making her feel as if she means,
nothing at all.

Shallow.

You found me,
Pulled me out from under the dirt,
Brushed me off, and
Held my hand.
Stood by me through everything,
Even when it was never your plan.
You were hurting inside,
I could always tell,
I would be there for you,
And protect you from it all,
Yet it was never,
Never enough.
You continued to fall.
You continued to drown yourself.
I was the lifeguard,
Dragging you back to the surface.
Saving you from yourself.
You loved me with all your heart.
You loved me way too much.
You thought you were saving me,
Yet i was the one left alone and hurt.
What you thought was a selfless act,
Had selfish consequences.
You just didn’t stick around to see.

Hours Lost

It’s such a shame,
The time we missed out on.
The minutes,
The hours,
The days,
Lost.
I wish we could have had more time.
But, sadly we cannot.

Faded Dreams

What once were so colourful,
now only screen in black and white.
Dreams filled with joy and laughter,
now abandoned, with no light in sight.
The nightmares have taken over.
Removing all happiness from my sleep.
Faded dreams set out to destroy me.
Rewarded by my silent screams.

My love for you
Grows stronger

You make me happy
Even when
the sky is gray.
You bring me
sunshine
On the rainy days.
You pull me close
Scaring my
demons away.

Fiery leaves fall from,
the cold, crisp trees.
The moon comes out to play,
earlier now. And, scares away
the sun, later in the day.
The air is chilly and fresh.
The same breeze you get from,
opening a freezer.
It almost hits you in the face.
Winter threatens itself upon us,
but, it’s not quite here yet.
Children’s excitement builds,
ready for halloween.
Dress up and candy,
without any fear.
It really is the most beautiful
time of the year.

Anorexia (trigger warning)

I lie to you.
I build up this idea in your head.
I make sure you are scared.
I see you are getting weaker.
I see you do not have much strength left.
This is because, every-time you refuse to eat,
you grow weaker. But, you are feeding me. Your little “friend” inside your head.
You cry yourself to sleep.
I laugh watching you weep.
I kind of hoped you would be stronger.
I thought it would be harder than this.
It turns out, you were the perfect meal.
For me to infest.

You look ugly now.
Even uglier than before.
I see each and every one of your bones.
They are my trophies I win,
each time you fall to the floor.
You still haven’t told anyone I’m here.
Not that anyone ...

Save me from my fate.

Drowned by the unknown.
Choked by the hatred.
Hands wrapped tightly,
around my weak throat.
Dragging me further,
into that place I dare not go.
I prayed for escape.
Interlinking my thin fragile fingers,
raising them to my chest.
I prayed for so long,
with no apparent answer.
Where was he, when I
needed him most?
He left me on this Earth,
to starve.
He left my body to roast.
I continue to wait. Hoping,
someday he will hear my prayers.
And, save me from my fate.

Marked across my stomach,
and my breasts.
I told myself,
they didn’t matter.
But, I have to confess.
I know they are souvenirs,
from doing something
mothers do best.
Carrying my precious children, and feeding them by breast.
I’m told I should be proud, yet
I’m feeling overwhelmed.
And slightly left out,
from the thrill, always talked about.
It isn’t always as great as I thought it would be.
But nevertheless,
I love them, and
they love me.
The marks they left behind,
are now a part of me.
A beautiful memory.

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.

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 ...
