When living gets to be too heavy a burden to bare
I tell myself I am enough
Often telling myself that I am enough, is not enough
If not enough in my own eyes, I tell myself that I am in God's eyes

She is tough, yet gentle,
Complicated yet simple,
Sure yet unsure,
Ordinary yet extraordinary,
Predictable in her unpredictability,

She is a paradox

And she is exhilarating.

3 am is not for the dreamers but rather the seekers

It is for the ones with minds over run by thoughts of someone that is surely not thinking of them

3 am is not for the lovers but for the lonely

It is for the ones that love love and to be loved but are not yet loved themselves

You were my first thought in the morning and my last thought before I fell asleep
Even when I thought my mind needed a break from you my dreams had other plans
You were my every beginning thought and end and almost every thought in between
But now you're a minds distant memory
Out from under the spell of you my thoughts can breathe
And as I lay myself to sleep tonight my mind is finally free

I am not ashamed of my scars
For they show what I've lived
Ashamed I am
For those that lack understanding

That incessant sound...
If you wouldn’t mind,
This pressure is making me anxious.
I am not quite sure what I want yet.
Yes, I know, I’m turning 23,
But please...
I’m still trying to find me.

For there will never be enough time, if we make the best with the time we have, perhaps if we are lucky...if just for a moment...time will stand still

"The moment in which we stop living for others, is the moment in which the richness of our lives is replenished."

Her scars tell a story, the story of her life
The battles fought and the battles won
She has lost more battles than she has ever won
but winning the war is all that really matters

It’s been nice getting to know you,
Waking up with you every morning,
Holding you while you cry,
Listening to you laugh,
We’ve known each other all this time,
And I’m sorry,
I just can’t believe that...
I’m only just now falling in love with you.
Dashalynn Nov 2018
For it was never based on his beauty,
But in his magnetism,
So enchanting
I would have fallen in love with him,
Even with my eyes closed

I stood on the edge of sanity
Crippled with self doubt and inadequacy
Wondering what it would feel like to be free
Free from the heartache
Free from past mistakes that plague my body like a sickness immune to our technological advancements
Free from the obligation to be who they all wanted me to be...
I jumped today
Through the grey clouds that surrounded me
Falling faster I found my wings,
I learned what it meant to be free
I jumped today...

And I just wanted you to know, I survived.

I remember a lot of what I wish I could forget,
but I will never not remember,

Dear, no one...

-love always, Dasha

As if always isn’t a commitment?
I fear commitment like some fear the end of the world.
Perhaps, it is not committing I am afraid of,
But having someone change their mind.
Dashalynn Nov 2018
What would I do if I weren't afraid?
I would tell you that I like you.
Well that wouldn't be entirely accurate.
I would tell you that every time I see you, my heart beats faster.
I would tell you that I get butterflies at the mention of your name.
I would tell you that I go out of my way to let you know just how special you are because you are, so. *******. special, to me.
I would tell you that I replay our conversations in my head like, all the time.
I would say just how having you in my life makes my days that much brighter.
I would tell you that ever since I met you, I smile a lot more than I used to.
I would tell you that talking to you literally makes my entire day, and when you look at me I swear I can't breathe.
I would tell you that every time I walk into a room I automatically look for you first.
I would tell you that a lot of people call my name, but you are the only person who can make it sound so **** special.
I would tell you that you are not mine, but sometimes I pretend you wish you were.
I would tell you that I want your heart because you stole mine.
If I wasn't afraid, I would tell you that seeing you with someone else is something that I don't want to see, or imagine because truth is…I'm crazy about you. But that's just it, it's crazy because I will never not be afraid because saying any of this ruins what we have.

What I tell myself is, I'd rather have you as a friend only, if It meant losing you completely.

I tell myself, this is how it has to be...

And I tell myself…I'm okay with it.

You just get me.
You are there for me,
Even when I hide away,
You find me.
Although be it strange,
You comfort me.
You are hard to let go of love,
Because even though you may be lonely,
At least you never leave me.

She loves hard because she knows how it feels to be loved so little
Dashalynn Oct 2019
Mind in tune with harmonies of the dark
A moonless night
Stars shining bright beside velvet black sky
Gleaming in jealousy
How her beauty out shone their light
A sky full of stars
I’m only looking at her
Loving and longing to be loved
I fell for her
I haven’t gotten up since
For the girl I love, on a night where we watched meteors fly through the sky <3
Dashalynn Nov 2018
Our stars could never recognize each other's paths
Our hearts could never beat as one
Chasing a love that would never be mine
I am left with an emptiness inside
I surrendered my heart to the dream of you
Dashalynn Jun 2019
Sheltered by your warm embrace
I lie with you  like I’ve died
When in fact I’ve never felt more alive
I watched as the moonlight danced upon your skin
Glistening under the starlight
I held you close,
I couldn’t help but think
The smell of you is simply intoxicating
Dashalynn Nov 2018
For the moment your lips said you didn't feel the same
Was the moment my heart felt what it was like to fall into a million pieces
Dashalynn Jun 2019
As the bright red hue of your taillights faded into the distance, I was reminded just how stupid it was to have worn my heart on my sleeve.

— The End —
