I have no clue what you look like
Or what your voice sounds like
But you care
We’ve both been hurt
But together we can pick up the pieces,
And fix our broken selves

Though I’ve never truly met you,
Seen your face,
Heard your voice,
Felt your touch,
I feel better knowing you’re there

the preface
of your success
is learning to face
your failure with grace,
and then identifying
your shortcomings to address,
and then prepare yourself
to give your best....

Someone to hug
But someone became everyone
And somehow, along the way

I look at myself in the mirror,
and my inner judge, the ego
dislikes some parts of the reflection.
By contrast, when I look for a minute more,
and I observe the ego,
and I set a distance
between what is an illusion [ego]
and what is 'real' [soul],
I see that
Higher Consicousness loves me all.
INTEGRATE YOUR SOUL INTO THE SCHEME OF LIFE

When two poets love,
Words start to hang in the air
And lose their meaning.
Another haiku? Wow! I'm only so good with words until I actually need to use them. Just ask my girl. (Spoiler alert: I'm really bad at articulating my thoughts in the heat of the moment. That's why I'm here.)

Life is like a stream of gushing waters.
Yeah even a river that flows ceaselessly..
The waves swashes the waters,
and it is tossed
thro and fro,
yes even in an unperiodic manner.
The river of life never allows rest,
it has a lot to keep all occupied.
Solemely life is like a river.

how do you name
this kind of strength?

the thing she loves most
shatters her, irreparably

shards sink to the depths
drowning she dies there

then recreates herself,
returning to care for it

There is no image for the love
Love is just a feeling
Some people say.

But, there is an image to the love
As you
" Jesus"
Love is God
God is love.

You are the light of my soul
while Im living the darkest hour of my life.

You held me in my hand
and dragged me to a universe that I don’t know,

A universe that is only me and you.

You are the perfect match for me
My heart burns knowing this is true.

A love that never dies.

                                      from his lips
i believed his deceitful manner
his charisma, it was alluring
I think most people take this as an s.o. but it could be anyone who stopped loving you a friend, a parent to just deceive you to get what they want from you. I also thought of the devil as I wrote this, he deceives you and feeds you with lies to follow him.
The day  has now gone here is the night
It's twelve o'clock all lights gone out
Not a single soul no one insight
We look out the window no one about.

Eyes are weary we are fighting sleep
Time to clime up that wooden hill
Waiting for us is the bed and sheets
Tired and drowsy sleep we will.

The evenings are colder
The frost here again
But we are much older
And our health's not the same

So as we head to that slumber land
And we dream our cares away
We pull up the blankets with our hands
And say goodnight to the day.
These cold nights a nice warm bed is welcoming.

The sounds you possess
Move through the harmonies you don’t
Melding into melodies
Drifting, as if to say:

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 ***

I am a placeholder
For when your graden
Welcomes you back
Do you ever feel as if you are nothing more than a filler for the better option?

If you breathed the same air in the same space as me
I would be content
And I wouldn't mind your breath on my lips.
Do I know my worth

Not completely no

Been running around with the projections getting myself in a spin

If I'm honest at times self sabotaging

The world became the playground from within

It wasn't the ground I would prefer to be playing in

I held back

Saw a lot of lack

Aligned with the mirrors of lest and jest

Can't blame the outside it just became a part of me

So the loving has to go on inside

internally

They said I'd never make it, said I'd never change
Said I was a loser said I was deranged
Didn’t know my struggles so they judged my pain
Wasn’t there for the pit so they never see me reign

He is simple and silent
He is gentle and humble
Strong and handsome
Born with a soft heart
Sometimes mysterious
incomprehensible
eerie and weird
Sometimes proud and solitude
When he is with me
He is sweet and joy
He smiles alot
Talkative and unbiased
To me he is perfect
To me he is my world
To me he is my precious
Because why i love him is for no reason
Love#unconditional#strong feeling

once upon a time
long ago
there was a you and me

i knew you once
and it was nice
silence was comfy
and we didnt have to try

i knew you once

you shared your secrets
and i shared mine

i knew you once

but where did you go...?

Ready.
You’re ready.
You needed to be here for a while
But now we’re moving on
Walk on
Walk straight
Don’t turn back
Don’t be afraid
I designed you for this day
I saw it before you were formed
So it’s coming
Whether you feel ready or not
Because I know that you are
Shrink back no more.

If you could read my mind,
You’d see a thousand papers
Filled with broken poetries
And deadbeat proses
Full of woeful verses
With mournful pieces
Of unfinished stories
That are yet to be written
And failed to be spoken;
If you could read my mind,
You’d hear horrible screams
And earsplitting weeps
From shattered dreams,
Kept in a nasty notepad,
Scribbled on a bed
Of bloodstained words,
Ringing in my head.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see the shadows
That lurk within me;
You’d hear the bellows,
Screeching the words
“I’m tired,”
“I’m a failure,”
“I’m stupid –”
I know it sounds stupid,
It’s pathetically foolish
And seems too *******.
If you could read my mind,
You’d feel the tears
I had ever failed to cry;
You’d see the people
That make the weak weaker;
You’d see the monsters
That consume my head;
You’d hear the hollers
That failed to be freed;
You’d see the heart
That still bleeds and bleeds.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see the face
I’ve failed to show back then,
The face I’ve faked back then.
If you could read my mind,
You’d see a character
I had ever failed to become
If you could read my mind,
You’d be able to read
A book you never wished
To touch and read,
But sometimes I still wish
Someone could read my mind.

Actions speak louder than words,
You wonder why I'm speechless.
he held her hand
and wouldn’t let go;
lidless eyes open wild
like a raging Victorian  bush fire

not knowing what to do,
she apologized
for the human race

then quenched
