everyday we wake up
a little different than we
were the day before

and my goal every
morning is to fall
in love with the slightly
new version of you

because nothing can
stay the same for long

but my love and
appreciation for you
only grows stronger

You're not lost, just because you didn't  trust today
I see you here, yet your thoughts are drifting away ...
You rake the leaves, with your bare hands,
You try to see, where your future stands.

You're not lost,  just because you need a break,
I see you smile, while trying to hide your heartache
You collect the dirt, under your fingernails,
As you walk barefoot and cover your trails.

I still see you, underneath the falling leaves,
I hear your voice say "thank you"  and "please"
I see your true smile, glowing in your eyes,
You're the only reason, my soul survives.
This is a repost of a dear poem of mine, it has a message that comes from the bottom of my heart, for the ones who feel lost from time to time. Also, this poem is the first one to feature in my first book of poetry, that you can find it on Amazon
You Are Not Lost: Poems of hope, love, haikus and more

Thank you for all the support I've gotten here! ❤️

If a man needs you to believe a lie,
He will often say, "trust me."

If a man needs you to believe the truth,
He will speak it.

Putting up Big Walls?
Yes! A cage? Yes!
Big walls! A Cage!
I was living, for years.
I was too shy to face those eyes,
too afraid to be judge,
to be unseen,
to be unworthy.
I am Scared.
Scared to do mistakes,
Scared to face a lot of people,
Scared to watch those judgmental acts,
So for years,
I just decided
to stay in my cage.
I am just scared of the world.

It was a lonely night,
Hearing those rain drops at the roof,
As i decided to scroll a facebook page,
Going to her older post,

Till I reach this letter of her,
Dear Z,
Here's the line.
I'm drawing this 'cause I badly need one:
To remind me that you'll never be mine,
'Cause I fear that loving someone so much will destroy me.
For me to always remember how you give your time to me but you're texting with her simultaneously.
To mark my words, that I will leave this place, this city where I met you; and
To remember how I pictured you on your wedding day with her,
You couldn't just be happier.
Chasing you,
Never I know,
That was an old letter of her
to my boyfriend.

Dear diary.  May 12 . Friday.
"Gettin' up was the first mistake I made today
Maybe if I'd stayed in bed I wouldn't hurt this way
For now I'll have to face the world admit that we're all through
And begin my first day without you."
I wake up today with dry tears and punch of eyebags.
Scrolling my phone.  And here again,  i received a text from him saying "im tired" i cant help but burst tears again.  So i decided to off my social media's. And to be brave to blocked him to avoid bursting my tears again.  Cause i know,  you will never come back again and i cant do anything but to see you walking away.  
Diary,  now,  i have to fixed my things. Cause ill be leaving far away today with a heavy heart.

You cut out my eyes.
You fed me with lies.
And now I can never see again.
