Let me write!
Sophie 4h
What do you want from me?
Let me write what I feel
Only paper listens to me...
This my way out
This is my only way in...

I beg you let me be
Ignore me if that's what will set you free...

I know
Sophie 6h
Dear monitoring spirit,
If I come here to express how I feel,
Hoping to be free from judgment and ridicule,
And you come here and read my words and laugh
Then I pity you
From the depth of my heart,
I pity you.

I loved you!
I always did, I felt I did...
I showed it in ways I know how to
With a little restriction, Yes
But I was only trying to protect my heart...
So blame me for not giving you my life
Blame me for not making you my reason for living,

The universe knows that I loved you
Even you know it.
It does matter what I do now...
I loved you.

So now...
Months later,
I don't have to prove anything to you,
I don't have to be there for you,
Show up for you,
Dress nice for you,

I proved my love for you long ago
I don't have to prove anything now!
I did all I could in the past, if you question my love...remember

I miss you
But I can't tell you
Because telling you means being vulnerable....again
And I don't want to fall
And have no one to catch me....again

In this moment
Sophie Aug 3
In this moment
I am happy
In this moment
I am satisfied
I stare at the sun rolling in green pasture
A sip from the still water I've been walking beside
I could ask for more
I will ask for more
In this moment
This quiet, carefree moment
This insignificant moment
I am happy
Joyful I believe
I could spend my whole day listing all the things I don't have; the list would be endless. But today I feel joyful for no reason. This is the moment I am free

Dirty bodies
Sophie Aug 2
We often run into the arms of those
Who can justify our madness,
Those who make us feel better about the monsters we have become,
Because we don't want to be better,
We don't want to change,
That's too much of a task for us
We just want to be loved the way we our,
Our ***** selves...
They embrace you because you haven't asked them to change.

....And even if I killed myself for you
You wouldn't even realise it
Because everyday with you
Was a slow death of me
You can't even imagine.

He said I was his slice of heaven
I sit here crying
Begging my soul to love him
As much as he loves me
But I can't
I can't make myself love you
And I'm sorry.

Memories in the midnight
Sophie Jul 15
The empty sky at night
Reminds me of you
That I may have rid myself of you
Empty like the sky this night
But it was when I had you
That my life was full and beautiful
Like the stars at night.
You are irreplaceable....

We sat at the bottom of the sea
Waiting patiently for the Healer
To set us free
You moved closer to see my scars
I shifted away to hide my scars
You moved closer and showed yours
Your scars; deep, fresh, everywhere
On your back
On your hands
On your heart
Greater than mine
I moved closer to show you mine
You ran your hands through

We sat at the bottom of the sea
Waiting patiently for the Healer
To set us free
My healing began when you saw me.

Friday night 21:15
Sophie Jul 5
This night I'm tired

I'm tired of trying

I'm tired of  trying to be who I was

I'm tired of doing what I used to do

I'm tired of trying to prove anything!

I'm sitting this one out!

Sophie with zero energy everybody!

Friday night, I'm just watching!
At some point you'll just be tired.

Broken pieces
Sophie Jun 30
You are a little broken too
I see you pick all the shards
Tryna Fix 'em with glue
You see that I'm broken too
You help me up my shards
And you hand me some glue

Broken pieces
Hiding behind our smile
Broken pieces
Let me fix you as I watch you fix me too.
Song lyrics i just came up with, makes good poetry too.

See me
Sophie Jun 30
I lie at your feet
Soaking you in every drop
Of my cold- warm tears
I beg you to see me,
See me for who I really am
See me for who you really know me to be....

I want to be
Sophie Jun 5
I want to be the one
Who'd always hold your hand
And tell you, life is not easy
So don't be mad

I want  to be the one
To hold you
Sleep at night
Rain may seem too heavy
Let me hold you tight...

I'm not strong enough to bear your rejection
But i want to be there for you
I'm not wild enough to run your race
But i want to try and keep up with you

Because I love you
I want to take good care of you

Because I love you
And I want to be the one for you

I want you to want me....
Loving you from afar

Happy alone
Sophie May 28
I'm happy sleeping alone
I'm happy in my company
I do want to be in love and melt in the beauty of it
But for now
I'm happy alone

Hopeless romantic #1
Sophie May 27
I fight with the voices in my head
They keep throwing stones
They keep calling me weak
               "All your poems about love!"
And you are  still alone
            That I don't deserve love
" it's not for the weak!"
I know there are a thousand things to write poetry about but i'm drawn to love. I love to write about love. Does that make me weak?

Heart acting up....
Sophie May 21
My eyes saw him
My heart foretold our future
You know the works
       " laughing in bed"
"Fun with doing nothing"
         "Holding hands under the table"

I told my heart to shut up!
You meet someone for the first time and you can already imagine spending forever....

His Story
Sophie May 7
There is so much he feels
He hides it in his heart
Lost in his heart
He should write about it
He should let it out
I have learnt that there is so much to say, to let out...
Remove the burdens that you bear
Let me listen to your heart
Let me feel you through your words
He feels so much
He hides it with a smile
He hides it with loneliness
He should write about it
He should let it out.
Dedicated to a ****** that I know. He hides everything inside when he should set them free.

And if i treat you unfairly
And if i don't reply you like i should
And if i play you like a fiddle
Making you suffer in bits of ways
It's because you deserve it
And i deserved better

I met you
Sophie May 4
And as I pushed myself below
To drown myself in my sorrow
I met you
You held me and brought me out
You held me soo close
Soo close you didn't let go
I met you
When everybody else was too afraid
You loved me
Every part of me I lost in loving others
You gave me double
You love me like I am a part of you
Love like I've never felt in a long while

As I pushed myself below
Hoping to drown myself in my sorrow
I met you
Thank you for loving me
The way no one else can
In love again

Memories of you haunt me
I see you everywhere
I remember the short time
And i wish they never were
The way I felt
The smile and laugh
The trust I had
The future I hoped with you
Second, third, forth chances
I wish everything was a dream
A nightmare that I am now
Waking up from

Hurt people hurt other people
You didn't hurt me
So I won't hurt you
We were hurt by other people
But we won't hurt other people

As i watched you leave
I wish you stayed
As i try to live without you
I feel the ache
In my heart
As if unconsciously
A piece of me has been taken
My heart it aches
And as i try to live this life of mine
I feel torn apart everyday

You took a piece of me when you left
And i want it back!!
I want my sanity back!
Give me my heart!!
Building walls to protect that which needs to be free

What is normal?
After you've left
Normal was rolling into your arms
Normal was talking till 2am
Normal was whispering and shouting
Normal was holding hands, running in the rain
They say things will go back to normal
Very soon, they promised
My normal
The only normal I'm used to
Was loving you

Someone New
Sophie Apr 24
Mama said
I should forget about you
Give it time my child
You will find someone new

Mama said
Don't waste your time
You are fine wine
And if he can't see that...
My child
You will find someone new

Mama said you ain't ready for us
For me
Too scared to give it a shot
Too scared to love till you drop
Let him go my child
You will find someone new

Mama said you didn't love me
That you didn't care
He has a lot of girls at his feet
He wants to take a sip from every river
I forbid you to think about him
You will find someone new

But mama doesn't know you like I do
She promised me that I'll find someone new
But all i want is you..

Hi.... (delete)
    Heyyy (delete)

Throws phone on bed
And let the words die inside
I quench the fire
I **** the feelings
With the messages I never sent
Fighting a silent battle and pride is winning

Of what you could use your hands

Everything in you

Tomorrow morning we can talk, tonight let's....

Too late to be awake
Sophie Apr 8
I laid in bed
Couldn't sleep
It wasn't the heat
I already showered twice
It wasn't the heat
Gentle breeze raising me up and bring me down
It wasn't the heat
I already felt cold inside
I missed you
I felt your absence in the heat
In the breeze
In the cold even with the heat
Rolling over
Rolling sober
I didn't miss you
I missed the way you made me feel
Like gentle breeze, raising me up and bringing me down
Like the heat, overtaking every inch of me
It wasn't you
It was the feeling
Then I realised
It is **** too late to be awake
Thinking over what can be replaced.
I am Unique but not irreplaceable

The real you

I think having feelings is one of the best gifts given to writers,
Because feelings are dynamic; ever changing. It is an opportunity to express freely.
So I write to release the feelings that hunt me....
Introducing ME..

With you
Sophie Mar 7
With you is ice cream and cookies

With you is lovely evenings

With you is laughter fest

With you is crazy me -unfiltered

With you is safe and happy

I wish
I wish
I find a you is someone else

After the many tears..
Sophie Mar 7
I deserve Ice cream and cookies

I deserve attention and commitment

I deserve 'I miss you' 'I need you' 'You are beautiful'

I deserve happiness and a heart to rely on

I deserve hugs and the deepest kisses

I deserve laughter and a sound sleep

I deserve promises and a willingness to keep

I deserve openess and acceptance

I deserve dedication
I deserve them all

And when I find myself
Missing him
After everything he has put me through
I speak to my soul:
You deserve better, Soft one

You deserve Love
Remind yourself....

It's hard sometimes
Trying to forget you
When all the memories come in like a flood
It's hard not to cry
It's hard every time
Trying to move on

I think I'm crazy
My friend held me close and whispered
"Not everything is your fault."
I blame myself for everything sometimes and I realised I that don't have that much power.

He said I gave up on him easily
That I left him too soon
I didn't give up
I just got tired of knocking
On the door of your heart
Hoping that you let me in
I was beaten by the rain
I was flogged by the wind
Laughed at because I looked desperate
Mistaken for a beggar
Mistaken for a con-artist
But never seen as a lover
I got tired of knocking
Because if you keep knocking
And there is no answer,
It means nobody is home
Or they don't want to let you in.

So maybe I did give up
Atleast I tried...
Sophie Mar 6
They say it hurts like a sting
When your heart is broken
Into a million different pieces
But I don't feel a thing
Instead I feel nothing
Not emptiness
And not heaviness
Instead I feel free

Maybe my heart was never broken
Maybe you can't break a heart that is already broken.
It's a beautiful day outside

I wonder
Sophie Mar 5
Why were we created with the need for another mortal?
Another mortal as foolish as we are...
To play the part of god and try to answer questions is to walk the trail that leads to madness...
Mar 5 · 122
Sophie Mar 5
I have come to be the jest
The rich and proud say I'm the best
I have come to give you rest
Prepare your hearts
A place to nest
I have come so take your shot
Aim and press
Inside I cry
Outside I smile
Isn't that what is expected from a clown?

Moving on
Sophie Feb 26
They asked me
''How did you get over him?''
''How did you get over him so quickly?"
I smiled and I laughed
A crazy laugh
I cried and I laughed
A silent cry
A crazy laugh
I told them
"I tricked my heart into believing that I didn't  need him."
The brain knows the truth, the heart is a sucker for love songs.
Feb 25 · 46
Sophie Feb 25
We met again
After all those years
We stayed in our usual spot
We did everything  we used to do
Laugh the way we used to
Stare into each other's eyes
The way we used to
I told you I missed you
I told you I wanted us back
You said you were busy with your life
Busy trying to be stable
Trying to figure out things
Things that seemed figured out already..
I smiled
All I heard from all of it?
'I don't want you back'
