sunshine
laid back watching the stars
dreamt you were always here
sticking around longer than the rest
because even if I could forget you
your eyes would never let me go
baby, you don't see what I see
when you're looking so closely
hands tangled over the darkness
we're in this mess together now

when I was watching the moon
you only dreamt only of me
staying close by longer than them
because even when I forgot you
our eyes would never let go
baby, you don't know the half of it
when I'm staring so closely
lips locked over the white noise
we're always gonna be together
i'll keep you
for as long as
I possibly can

Try to silence me,
Drag me down
Try to hurt me,
Punish me
Try to lie to me,
Betray me
Try to slice me up,
Eat me
I will never submit.

what is an ocean?
why do the waves crash?
what makes the tide come in?
why do the rocks and the shells change in that way?
The effect of the water is clear.
Moving at its own pace
With no regard for how much each movement
changes what surrounds it.
And changing itself in the process.

Poems aren't written,
they're found,
Somewhere in your head the words are waiting,
They're sprawled across the floor,
You just need to pick them up,
Make a path with them,
Let your path guide observers,
And if you can't write,
Walk down somebody's else's path first,
First poem I've written, to anybody who reads this is hope you enjoyed it and it made you day a little better

All the creatures down below
Say goodbye, and up I go

Iridescent waves reflect the sun
And greet me happily, as if for fun

Higher than the birds, up I fly
"Welcome to the ocean in the sky"

Where the horizons gently touch
The worlds of land and air collide

And everything in between
The ocean in the sky

i imagine
you look quite
stunning
in dawn’s light
and i imagine
your hand
would fit quite nicely
in mine
and i imagine
that it might
feel wrong
before it feels quite right
but i imagine
you look quite
stunning
in dawn’s light

What is happiness?
Are we born happy?
Is it in our DNA?
Do we learn it?
I often ponder on it.
Is happiness linked with love?
Are we happy without love?
Is unhappiness missing love?
Our views are different.
If listed, it will fill pages.
Upbringing, an influential force
Experience is the voice of "I"
We are uniquely designed.
Happiness is a state of mind
Love is a feeling, free from the beginning of time!

Bumps smooth out with time
And cracks, well, leaves room for breathing
Maybe you don’t fit flush
But does that mean that you’re in the wrong place?

it happened.
i screamed silently with my tears,
you hurt me with your fears.

you seemed to care,
but I'm afarid that you'll scare
my scarred heart,
my fragile art.

now a freezing fire burns in me
running softly
through my soul,
tar black coal,
hiding quietly ,
permanently,
in old rusty tin,
the diamond within.

In that kind of mood
When ledges look beautiful
One jump, So far down
Looking down, its exhilarating. Heart beating so fast, as if its crying out begging me to hear that im still alive. That I can go on.
Tell me when you jumped, was it everything you imagined. That amazing feeling, of fear, happiness, freedom, release.
Sigh, i just wish I could go back in time
I just want to talk with you.
I miss you

how the more I need you
the more you drift away?

You'll feel so hurt
when I do end up
getting along anyway

Isn't that funny?

The mouth is the small compass of the soul,
Without dials, true north, or magnetic force,
The ungaugeable instrument of the voice,
In directionless modulations of undertow,
To circumnavigate under cartographer’s pole
Stars guide our wayfinding-heirlooms of words.

I'm back!
So sorry everyone, the last few weeks have been... a strain on me.
I am still doing my media course and all, but mentally and emotionally,
I was slipping down into a dark place. My sleeping patterns have been messed up, my nerves have been completely out of control, my self-doubt, anxiety and depression drained me so much that I found it really hard to write, so I needed time to gather myself. It was so hard for me to pick up a pen. To do anything. My smiles were hollow and I just felt so lost.

I just wanted to apologise, I didn't mean to worry anyone. I'm truly touched by the out-pour of support for me. I got so many messages asking if I was alright. I can't express how much that warmed my heart. I'm so used to people being angry at me for my silence that it usually scares me to come back. By nature, with everything I've experienced, it's made me more and more of an isolationist. To all of those people, truly, thank you so so much for staying and just being kind to me...
Really. Thank you T-T
And thank you to all my followers, old and new.
245 followers... I can't even... T-T
I'm sorry if I sound like a broken record but thank you.
I'm back now, and I'm feeling better.
It's easier to hold my pen so I will resume spilling my ink.

I'll continue the Masked Bard on Thursday, I'm free the whole day.
I have no idea of my schedule the coming week.
Again, I appreciate everyone one of you.
Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts.
Thank you for staying with someone like me.
With much love,
Lyn ***

It Takes Two

    When you fall in love
It's no longer just about you
Love is a commitment
It takes two

When things go wrong
You have to see it through
You can't just throw it all away
It takes two

You have to know your loved
One by heart
You should know when they
Are blue
Know what it takes to make
Them smile
It takes two

Know that the best gift in
Life is love
And always be true
Never turn your back on love
It takes two

Don't let your love fade
Find away to keep it new
Always give your love your heart
It takes two

Know the warning signs
When trouble is about to brew
Think before you speak
It takes two

Have faith in God and family
They will always be there
For you
And remember always remember
It takes two

You are an art, full
a wonderful maze

The corners I'll paint
with this mischievous lips

How do I keep calm
when your sunset left a spark

And I can see your eyes
through this water paradise

May you be the storm, but
won't be fearing me to drown

The blazes amazed me
but I will never frown

To lose myself in yours
till the end of time
The red sunset is not a sin.

you need to stop leading me on.
you and you and you and you and you.
just leave me alone and grow up.
you boys and girls put a lot of stress on me.
I'm not staying,
it's my blame.
I'll leave the innocent;
I'm not the same.
I've got blood on my hands.
Pressure to understand.
You're right.
You've always been.
I tend to forget.
I won't bother you,
still my existence bothers me.
My mind smothers me.
The nights scare me;
comfort is scarce.
The dark makes things worse,
and this silence hurts.
It can be so loud,
the noise of nothing.
The sounds of your thoughts,
utterly isolated.
I love y'all;
but I don't love me.
I can't live up to what you all think of me-
all feedback is welcome and appreciated!

of a poem
that's amazing

and you're sure you'll remember

This is kind of my mood right now.

That darkness I know.
I know its depth,
its cold hug.

Yehuda,
I don't forget you;
where do you abide
or not, near or far?

Once upon a time
our lips met
under the applause
of the moon's shadow
and stars shine.

Where you are
laid to rest,
I do not know,
but memories
are treasures,
plain and simple
like untouched snow.

Let's tear her clothes
She is a doll , she says nothing,
Okay, she is fine.
Let's scratch her body
She says nothing,
Okay, she is fine.
Now let's cut her hair,
She don't feel
She don't cry ,
Okay, she is fine.
And our fun is over!
Now let's burn her
She says nothing,
Okay, she is fine,
She still smile.

Its the days when you don’t cry,
But you don’t smile either.

It’s the days when you’re quieter than usual,
And people notice.

It’s the days when you aren’t quite thinking about anything.

But if someone asked you what was wrong,
You wouldn’t know where to start.
