Treetop Highs

I realize you’re watching,And feel that you see me,Even when your shadow is all that you show. Your presence is with me,And I feel you judging,But the truth of your heart I will never know. Because you’re ever silent,Existing just out of reach,Staying right where I could never go. I want so much to get…ToContinue reading “Treetop Highs”

Empty.

I want, so muchfor you to see me.But I’m scared you’ll seeright through the layersso carefully constructed to hideall that remains to be seen. Because when you truly see meand discover what lies beyond this faceI’m afraid I’ll find my darkest spacethrough knowing eyeswho’ve seen the wholeof a truth I can’t be facing. Yet it’sContinue reading “Empty.”

The burn

I let the heat engulf my body,As I slide into the water slow.Slip my head beneath the surface,And ponder what I know… While my oxygen runs out,And my chest begins to burn,Like it has these past few months,When I was forced to learn… That I will be alone,Not just in this porcelain tomb,With my headContinue reading “The burn”

Cookie crumbles

As I wait for the next batch of food to arrive,From the hands of another stranger..I stare at a lonely crumb on the edge of the couch. So gruesomely brokenTorn away from the whole it once was.Just a remnant of a previous self. Useless now. A mere distraction.And just a reason for cleaning up.No longerContinue reading “Cookie crumbles”

Breach the walls

You slipped in unnoticed, Through a tiny crack – in the walls I’d so carefully kept. Took up your space, In a heart unbroken – Unphased by its limitations. Then left chaos in your wake, as you tore down those walls, and left behind a gaping void – in a heart now framed in jaggedContinue reading “Breach the walls”

A simple sum

So about this ‘alone’ business…Do you even know how lonely it is?Having to spend each night by yourself…When there’s only one thing you miss? I mean, I am (of course) great company….And it doesn’t really take all that much to see…That when it comes to myself….I don’t mind it being just me. Except for theContinue reading “A simple sum”

Play your cards right

It could have been so different.It should have been so different.My heart knows it. My soul believes it.It is nothing but a solemn truth. If only the world had been different.If only we had been different.They knew it. We never believed it.But it was always an undeniable truth. If only it had been a differentContinue reading “Play your cards right”

And then I tell myself…

One from the archives – just to end the week with a flair of drama: And then I tell myself. They tell me to be strong.They tell me to heal.And then I tell myself….Maybe I was happier being unhappy with you. They tell me I’m being strong.They tell me I’m healing.And then I tell myself…HowContinue reading “And then I tell myself…”

A lesson learned. A losing game.

Some images evoke stories. Words. Dialogue. And some have the power to evoke emotions. That in turn take form in words. Like this one above, sent to me by a friend as a daily dose of peptalk. Only to lead to the poem found below: A losing game We were always at odds. Yet ohContinue reading “A lesson learned. A losing game.”
