Hurt was the black of a soulless night
Healing was the white of a peaceful dove

He stabbed her heart with a metaphorical knife
She covered the wound with her husband's love
one man hurt her
one man healed her

Our Home
You told me that your home was your garden
Surrounded by God's beautiful nature
I told you that my home is the ocean
Surrounded by water that stretches on forever
We both came from homes of destruction
We both came from homes of pain
The most wonderful home that we ever knew was the one that we both made
the home that we made together

Bitter Betrayal
Betrayal comes in many colours
Betrayal comes in many forms
No betrayal quite matches yours

The knife you stabbed into my back
Twists and slices my flesh
A painfully bitter reminder that I won't trust you again
the bitterness of betrayal
Darkness lingers here because the wounds are deeper
Healing is hard when you don't want to get better
Darkness lingers here because you are a special kind of sick
The reality of death being your dearest wish
the darkness that lingers

The Great Escape
When she was a child she would escape into her mind
When she wanted to cry she would fake a smile
When she became a woman
She planned her great escape
The slice of a blade caused the end of her charade
she finally escaped
You tore one of my walls down
Hoping to destroy me
I have a million layers growing exponentially
Try your best but my perfect mess will always be around
i am growing exponentially
You say that you can survive without me
So go.

You say that I make you so unhappy
So go.

You say that you're sick of my violent mood swings
So go.

You say that I am emotional and needy
So go.

It's funny how you're still not leaving
It's funny how you're still touching me
It's funny how you phrase your apology

As I go.
you phrased your apology as i turned to leave
Once upon a time
Once thousand years ago
I had this precious gift called youthful innocence

Funny how a fickle foe disguised by the name of Time
Can rob me of my scruples
Can corrupt an innocent mind

Once upon a time
A thousand years ago
I was a decent person but I let that person go
once upon a time i was innocent
i never did die
we never did part
i exist eternally inside your heart
our existence is eternal

Frozen Heart
My heart is full so I cannot love you anymore
Your heart is frozen so you've never loved at all
your heart is frozen

The Box
Four walls of insanity
Keep me boxed in
I used to think I was safe
Now I only wish to escape
The box is my home
Inside it I am alone
Four walls of insanity
Keep me boxed in
i am boxed in
the scars on my wrists paint a picture of pain
drawn in a time when i was clearly insane
i thought that my body was a canvas of self harm
my razor blade became the perfect tool for expression
red was my favourite colour back then
it was the colour of crimson red
the thought of it leaving my body by the litre gave me such a rush
until the day they found me bleeding to death and decided to lock me up
the scars on my wrist paint a picture of someone who did not feel good enough
the scars on my wrist paint a picture

Ugly Scene
Turn the light off for I cannot bare to watch this scene

Train Track
I am tied to the train track
I cannot move
I hear the train approaching
I realise the train driver is you
tied to the train track
my deceit was so destructive
tearing a hole in our friendship

i know that you don't trust me
that harsh truth simply kills me

if friendship is built on trust
what will happen to us?

in my mind is a haunting picture
that i'll be unable to fix this

it cuts through my soul like a knife
to think of you leaving my life

i'm aware that i deserve this
for the decency that i relinquished

my deceit was so destructive
burning a hole in our friendship
my deceit was so destructive

beauty from the ashes
i am not ashamed of my failures
i use them to paint beauty from the ashes
each failure was a place of learning
each failure is a sign of growth
there is beauty in every single failure
they help me paint a picture from the ashes
they help me paint a picture of hope
painting beauty from the ashes

Ghost of You
Everywhere I go I see your face
I love you but sometimes I just wish you'd go away
You haunt me when I'm wide awake and when I am asleep
I'm trying to move on but you keep following me

Everywhere I go I feel your presence lingering
I thought that death would take you but I can still feel you breathing
I want you to move on so maybe I can too
How can I be happy if I'm haunted by the ghost of you?
haunted by the ghost of you

Summer Sin
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
Here I am
Standing outside in the freezing rain

You don't understand
You think it's fair to make me wait

There you are
Coming outside and inviting me in

It hurt so hard
When I realised your true intentions

I'm in your bed
The regret is so extremely putrid

I can't pretend
What made me feel beautiful now makes me feel worthless

Here I am
I'm on the train home after deleting your number

You'll never understand
How one sinful night ruined my whole summer
a mistake ruined her whole summer

Australian Accent
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
I'm that girl with the Australian accent
I'm the poet who writes in the corner
When the party is getting boring
You'll find me with my journal writing scribbles with my blue pen

I get easily distracted
I tend to feel fat most of the time
Sometimes I seem to lose my passion
Until I hear Ani DiFranco and my heart is set on fire

I fall in love so ******* easily
I'll see your ocean eyes and fall upon my knees
Suddenly I'll see your face on every street
Secretly hoping that one day you'll want to marry me

I'm that girl that got bullied all through school
I think that being different is a fun activity to do
I might get rejected on a regular basis
Rejects tell the most interesting stories

I'm that girl whose got bipolar and anxiety
I've been hospitalised for both of these things
I lost my faith in the mental health system
I know that no one has the decency to fix it

I'm that girl with the Australian accent
I'll always love even if I don't receive it
My best friend has always been Jesus
When I die I'll leave behind the words I write with this blue pen
a little poem about me

The Girl in Blue
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
The girl in blue is through with you
Through with your ****** gestures
Cleaning up your messes
I'm putting on a brand new dress
The girl in blue is changing her view
time for a brand new view

The Choice
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
You tell me to choose
Little do you know
The choice was made up for me decades ago

I didn't have a say at all
My cards were snatched out of my hand
I watched all of my aces fall

Choices are always harder for the woman
Something you could never understand
I want to live just one day as a man

You tell me to choose
Little do you know
The choice was taken from me decades ago
little do you know

Truth & Love
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
Love is a bitter thing when you don't have it
Truth is an ugly thing when all you know are pretty lies
Love is a bitter thing when it passes you by
the truth about love

Peaceful Fool

Beckie Davies Dec 2020
If I had been born with a *****
I wonder how I would have used it
Would I have wielded my power?
Would I have identified as an alpha?

Would I be gentle or a brute?
Would I love or abuse?
Would I have been the enemy?
Or would I simply have been me?

Love's Proof
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
What is wrong with me?
What is wrong with you?
We believe in love only when we see proof
proving love is difficult for us

Two Men
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
She remembers a man
Sordid and strong
Self righteous
Wickedly wrong

She remembers a man
Strong yet insecure
Vulnerably pure
Self deprecating
Thought provoking
Full of so much fear

She remembers two men
One angel
One demon
Caught in the insanity
Of two men that were the same
two men that were the same
Dec 2020
Joyful Home
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
Home is a place you left
A place you wanted to forget
It was there you learnt that love is fabricated

Joy was a woman you met
Along the way to happiness
She had a tambourine and a sunny temperament

Home is a place you made
A place you hope to always remember
It was there you learnt that love is what you make it
abused man finds his own version of love

Beckie Davies Dec 2020
You need to succeed
Buckling under pressure
On your knees

Don't you dare fail
Don't tell me that you tried your best
You are only good enough if you pass this test
great expectations
Dec 2020 · 26
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
Listen to the enemy
Learn his tactics
Observe his sordid behaviour
It will give you all the answers
Listen long enough
To learn how he plays the game
Note down all your findings
Then stealthily creep away
learn from the enemy

Sober Conditions
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
I will always accept you
Unless you are different

I will always help you
Unless I'm busy helping myself

I will always find you beautiful
Unless you grow old

I will always love you
As long as you do what you're told

Conditions will always apply
A sober fact of life
the conditions of life

No one in Particular
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
To no one in particular
You said goodbye

To no one in particular
You sang a lullaby

To no one in particular
You delivered a gift

The ghost in your mind
No longer exists
the death of a child
Dec 2020
Heart & Mind
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
Your heart is beautiful even though you don't have one

Your mind is as bright as a dead sun

Your heart is as kind as the darling Donald Trump

Your intelligence reminds me of Forest Gump
my impression of you

Professional Liar
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
I am a professional liar
It pays to learn deceit
Only the naïve believe in honesty

I am a professional actress
I've perfected every line
I've mastered every mask
You think you've got the answer
I've made you drop your guard

I am a professional liar
My name is whatever you call yourself
Honesty is naïveté
Naïveté is hell
naïveté  is hell
Dec 2020 · 33
Move On
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
Call me what you want
Call it timing
Call it coincidence
Call it Murphy's Law
Call this whatever you need so we can move on
moving on is all we can do

Beckie Davies Dec 2020
The comfort you seek brings out the anger in me
The more that you speak
The less I know how to be
The comfort that you seek brings us no peace
the comfort you did seek
Dec 2020 · 32
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
I needed you to agree
So that I could be free
Of you
Of them
Of it
I needed you to agree
Because arguments always look better that way
agree with me.

Beckie Davies Dec 2020
I am here but that's not clear
I am in there but not in that
I look different when in front of the rest
I am here and I always will be

Beautifully Honest
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
Honesty is myth unless you pay for it
Beauty is a commodity that we confuse with superficiality
I am beautifully honest but you are unaware of it
beautifully honest is what i was

APRIL 20 1889
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
I don't know why they hate me
I was only trying to make
The world a better place

I don't know what makes
A man into a monster
A monster into a man
There is so much that I do not understand

The better place
The "superior" race
Is a lie I told myself every day
the birth of a monster

The bird took flight
She was frightened by the slamming door
She flew into an electric fence

Fashion Statement
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
I wear my skirt backwards simply to make a statement

You do not see the skirt because you don't find them attractive

She thinks we're so absorbed in what is not important

I made a statement but I was using the wrong language
what language will make the most impacting statement ?

Clutching onto Freedom
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
Hold onto me and I'll disappear
Let go of me and I'll stay for years
your mistake was holding on
Beckie Davies Dec 2020
Looming over me menacingly
Vividly vicious
The truth
In it's painful honesty
Plain to see
The truth of a looming prophecy
the truth was so menacing
