Poet Introduction Poetry has always been a part of me, beginning in middle school. There is always some truth behind every piece that I write. It helps to be aware of what goes on around me as a writer and as a person.
I was hurt and damaged from the darkness Of my past, but somehow with your open Arms I was beginning to enjoy the starkness And quietness in every moment. My broken And shattered pieces were finally starting to Heal as the sky went from pitch black to blue.
My heart bleeds as you and everyone Else just walks away, but I have to be My own ray of hope as the wound is Healing on its own. I can be my sun Amongst the clouds. I can just see The new moon as tears stop fizzing.
You say you are a warrior and got thicker skin While some say you may be done and finished Forever, but then you have risen from the ashes, Reappearing from the smoke like a skyscraper. After so many burns, car collisions and crashes You show strength. You are far from being paper
Or razor thin when you show that a strong storm Can never knock you down. Let us all normalize Bruises and scars because they tell us a story not Because they show your weaknesses. You keep Using your voice to speak up as you always fought ...
Love permeates the air because I cannot Get enough of you, but it is not the lust I feel in my bones and veins. It is the real Deal as I used to always get so caught Up in the past, but not anymore as I trust You and all the love that is strong. I feel
You even when you are not sleeping here Next to me or walking besides me in this Journey of life. I asked a million times if You loved me and you said, “Never fear My love as it is sturdier than the abyss We get easily lost in. Let go of the cliff’s
Make your moves in silence as one does In a game of chess. Watch out as pawns Become castles, knights, bishops, queens And kings. Do not second guess because In those moments of weakness the swans Take advantage. Mirrors or smoke screens
Will advert you from the truth as you keep Your guard up with your knifes sharpened And ready. Calculate your moves so your Enemies do not see you slipping or asleep. To them you are like a decaying carcass, But little do they know you won the war
Our paths merged and became one. I thought this would be what I always Wanted, love and something that lasts Forever. We are always chasing the sun As long as we have each other. Our gaze On the horizon and sky, our murky pasts Forgotten. Baby, it was just you, me and The happy memories we hold in our hands.
I am sorry that I had you stay for too long Because the truth is that you really belong To someone else. I was hanging onto our Love for eternity and as the midnight hour Came in the light I could not keep clinging On for dear life anymore as it kept raining.
Whatever sunlight and happiness we once Faded away. The days turning into months And the months turning into years meant Nothing if the love we had was totally bent Out of shape or empty. I am sorry for all of The times I could have been able to love
Every day she puts on a brave smile, But no one notices the loneliness she Feels steeping into her bones late at Night when there is no one else to talk To. Every day it always the same cycle Over and over again like a dishwasher Or washing machine that will not stop Running. No one realizes she misses Someone who will hold her tight and Keep the bad nightmares away. She Laughs but no one is there to laugh At her silly and corny jokes. No one Is there to come home to and vent to About her bad day at work. No one is There...
