Leaving You

Blinded I love you Once, twice By all accounts a fool I cling To sordid memories In hindsight my joy Recurrent manipulation   The harder I clamp on The ghostly-er you become Slipping away as I claw at strings Fruitlessly You’ll never win what cannot be bought   Every song I hear is about you … Continue reading

Heavy

i Depression Is a simple word that doesn’t seem to do the Reality Of the experience Justice For those who have never experienced it, I will try to ii The will to live Is ripped from your soul You are left with an empty mess of a shell Who has nothing to give And nothing … Continue reading

Too Far Inside Myself

These feelings might change, but right now There is no place in this world I can find happiness I’m trapped in a prison of my own self sabotage Constantly kicking myself for traits I can’t change My essence is ugly Shouldn’t have told you those things that I’ve done That show I’m not right deep … Continue reading

Space

Space away from you Is a nice concept To clear my head, And think logically Is the rational thing to do You fog up my brain Like a car when the heater first turns on, On a frosty winter day Giving me temporary amnesia As I forget what it was like to feel cold towards … Continue reading

As you know, I’m not the most eloquent of speakers to say the least, so I’ve decided I need to write down exactly what I’m thinking, so I don’t forget anything or put it off again. I’ve wanted to say what I’m thinking for ages but I keep putting it off because I’m scared, or … Continue reading

A Letter To 10 Year Old Me

Dear 10 year old me, If I could meet you right now, I would take you in my arms and tell you that things are going to get so much better. You are an intelligent, caring person who has a place in the world. You are not insignificant, even though you often feel like it. … Continue reading

Splinter

This boy is going to break my heart He’s already shattered Any resolution I held To keep my emotions towards him platonic, With his smile and his way of drawing me in Like he cares Then he’ll talk of other loves While I just smile politely Splintering internally I see him consuming my mind in … Continue reading

Fire and Ice

When I’m with you I feel like I could climb mountains, Dance with reckless abandon Swim oceans, You light me up And make me feel like life is beautiful Our conversation sparks and soars Bringing out the passion in each other Whether it be anger or wild, impossible dreams It’s all possible with you Our … Continue reading

The Unattainable

What once was unattainable And so far out of reach The object of my desire Became something I have attained And lost its shine The saying is true You want what you can’t have And we have each other, now The spark is still there But it’s not the same Fear and risk of rejection … Continue reading

Perfect Storm

I wonder, And it’s no new speculation Why am I not the one you want? For you, And so many in the past I’ve felt a pull to I go unnoticed, When all I want is to be near you, And for you to want to be near me in turn I should be used … Continue reading
