Today, the sky was sunny and bright. Like ice cream, cold but light. Then, the sky turned gray as the wind and snow welcomed the night. I look up, down and around and wish I didn't feel so helpless here on the ground. I can't control the weather. This is true. But there are things I can control and so can you. We can control what we learn. We control what we write. We control whether we run or stand up and fight. We control all these things and so much more. But you never know what life has in store. One more thing to think about. If we could control everything, life would be so much duller. Maybe that's why my favorite thing I control is how much of the world I see in color.
Your cruel comments inflict much pain It cuts so deep my veins can't handle the poison It leaks out a foul smell. Pigs in pens Nothing you say will do. The damage has been done. I feel all alone. Won't I ever be free. Of accusers
Perfectionism a disease it eats me up and makes me bleed internally my mind is on repeat "notgoodenoughnotgoodenoughnotgoodenough" from top to toe to inside my soul my body aches, I want to scream, cause it eats me up Perfectionism
The first days of warmth always seem long, perpetual Though grateful for rays beaming, burning the dark of winter from you The death of winter leaving, thus spring gracing us with its gilded flowers and endless light
u see the knife you watch the glow u see me smile but can't hear me cry u think i'm happy but inside i'm breaking u see the blood then u realize that i wasn't lying when i said i'm depressed! u wish u gave me the support i needed but now it's too late. I'm dying inside...
My comfort zone has evolved My dynamic has altered My air has renewed My pace is skyrocketing My goals are reached Can't you see It's my shift My skin looks better They say my hair is thicker That my skin is softer That the girl gave place To the woman It's my shift When my world gets wider And my dreams draw closer The whole Universe is speaking "Clarencine shift!" The 9 in the 2019 Is now giving birth to the greatness in ME!!! My Daughter's name shall be "Bloom" And the meaning of my name Shall stay "clarity" And God says You are the light of this world & The Salt of this Earth Fearfully and Wonderfully made Fully stepping into MY SHIFT!
Not all depressed cut, Not all sad shed tears, Not all strong fight, Not all monsters roar, Not all young are innocent. Some just work harder to maintain a mask. We are here, And you have reason to fear, We are the best liars, We can manipulate the greatest con artist without batting a single eyelash. Watch out we are coming.
This is a dark and serious prom but that didn't change the fact that In was tempted to put "and we're *****" instead of " And you have reason to fear" ****
Do you feel it? The rising sun, The blooming lilies, The chirping birds, The cooling breeze. Do you feel it? Caress by a mother, Soft hug by a brother, A kiss by the lover, Sweet time with a friend forever. Do you feel it? The favorite read, The favorite tune, My favorite play, And, oh the full moon. Now, do you feel it? No, I don't. I can't find the source. Again, I asked myself, What is it that you seek? A meagre amount of pure Happiness.
I'll continue being the fool until the day you notice. I'm a jester to be used to entertain, to mend that sadness Once you finally see, I'll be that knight in your dreams. Through the darkest hours. I'll make you see your light that gleams.
On the time that we have settled in I shall be your prince. That one desire your heart deeply clings to ever since. Until the time I settle in as your husband, the final step. I shall still be that fool that wished true to the plans I prep.
Oh what a dream, what a wonderful reality would it be. Now restrained by the madness that only harms me. I writhe in the pain of this nightmare that haunts. Only to see salvation in the one that my heart wants.
My head rests on the pillow My eyes stare upwards My ears hear the rain pittering on the window But my mind is not cognizant of this I am captivated Enthralled Infatuated Spellbound Staring into your eyes
You are my everything You are the culmination of all beauty Your mind in an unparalleled powerhouse Your spirit is freedom and joy I need you to myself I am incomplete if you are not completely mine My feverish obsession with everything that is you is exhausting me I am falling falling falling asleep as much as I am falling in love
Mounting that mirror on the ceiling was an amazing idea
I can't see the Sun as clear, yet it shines I feel left alone, yet I'm not I can't see what I love in my face, yet it is there I can't touch what I want (you my heart) yet it didn't die...
Keep casting spells on the walls of the jail with songs Keep waiting for better days to come Yet, nothing is wrong, just cloudy weather but no storms
Carry on with this little burden of mine That I will carry on for you to relieve you from the weight I know you love me, but you are away Like the Sun on a rainy day It might be mock darkness, but it freezes all the same I know you love me ,though, so I endure the winter while I wait
I have you ever felt the rain drip and drop directly onto your brain And rinse his face right out of you memories Causing a puddle to form under your heels That eventually creates a river And while the rain water causes your arms to shiver You collect the broken wood from the wreck the storm left over To build a bridge and cross right over
I don't feel special, I'm not unique. I want to cry but I can't even speak. My hands reach out, but they cannot hold a single thing but the bitter cold. Everything's frozen, I feel lost. Even my tears have turned to frost. When I cut my waist it bleeds black. I'm so deeply gone there's no way back. This is goodbye
~ Was stuck in a rut But because of all of you I feel like I’m free. ~
I just want to thank everyone for all of the love and support from my last poem! My latest poems have not been getting much attention so I’m glad to have finally escaped that. I am just so very grateful for all of you!
If I had to, My heart could single yours out, Hidden in a stadium full of hearts, Mine could single yours out, The invisible thread that joins us, The thread that only I can see, I wrap around my hands, Bringing me ever closer to you, With each wrap and entwine, Regardless of the cross words we had, Or the debate we just had, You, underneath a mountain of coats, I could single you out, That.... that is soul connection my love.... That is us..
The tragedy is there's a prison in my mind all the thoughts that lurk there are ones I wish were never mine they etch into my heart the scars I wear so bright
They whisper wicked stories of things that never happened or maybe things that did things that shouldn't create ripples in the current in my life but here I lay in bed stuck awake at night eyes cutting blankly through the nothingness of my cold and dark bedroom
Your eyes, So familiar Looked like a window Felt like a mirror So I avoided your gaze Afraid If i stared for long enough I would start to see everything I despised In human form Your eyes, Like a mirror Confronting the deepest sorrows Giving them a voice To speak To exist Anywhere other than the poisoning smoke Of a fire Your eyes, Like a mirror Knew where to look Like cleared throats Masking swallowed words, Collapsing lungs, But they were silent for a reason I didn’t want you to reach that far back Or come this close To the truth, Your eyes, Like a mirror I shall shatter Like I do To everything that makes me see.
