Over the Fire
Emma Price Jul 14
I treaded so lightly
so as not to break
the eggshells
that I broke
myself instead

Loss
Emma Price Apr 16
Words trail around
in my head
with no semblance
of organization
no rhythm no rhyme
certainly no sense of time
and I long for
the perfection that used to be
where now I see only me
~much love

Last Chance
Emma Price Feb 18
what if we lived today
like there would be no tomorrow
no fear of the future in our way
even in the wake of great sorrow
~much love
Emma Price Jan 1
Nothing I haven't already been doing
but also become an aero engineer
Just keep loving people in every moment
but also get married
Engage with my surroundings as I always have
but also become a mother
Continue optimizing every moment
but also win a Nobel prize
Forever live all in, changing the world with every action, as I am now
but also get a PhD
~much love
Emma Price Nov 2020
I wanna be strong,
a rock when things go wrong

I wanna be well read,
a full library in my head

I wanna be happy,
unashamed of the way I'm sappy

I wanna be a musician,
an artist on a mission

I wanna be pretty,
speaking a language of witty

I wanna be vocal,
sharing what makes me hopeful

I wanna be all the beautiful things I see
without ceasing to be me
~much love

Yesterday
Emma Price Oct 2020
I don't wanna change history
I just wanna change the future so drastically
that I don't have to regret the past
because the now is passing  so fast

Silence
Emma Price Oct 2020
There's so much that I can't say
that saying anything at all leaves me in dismay
~much love
Emma Price Oct 2020
They tell the smarties that they're proud
but the geniuses have no pride allowed
For the smarties are part of an elite crowd
but the geniuses are in isolation drowned

Stubborn Silence
Emma Price Oct 2020
Chasing a sound
that may never be found
A defening silence
drives us to violence

Luck of The Draw
Emma Price Oct 2020
Some live a broken fate
that this broken world precipitates
Some live a perfect illusion
their grasp on reality loosened

Not So Silent Spring
Emma Price Sep 2020
The spring is no longer silent
and we are no longer blind
The fight has become violent
and we have so little time

If we don't fight for the environment
there will be no selfish treasures left to find

Risk and Reward
Emma Price May 2020
a promise, a plea
drowning in the sea
life, far from me
no roots to this tree

a promise, a plea
I've finally broken free
but that comes with a fee
the universe would agree

a promise, a plea
henceforward, simply
no connections to be
no happiness to see
~much love

Too Much
Emma Price Apr 2020
They say I'm too much
that I'm crazy cause I
care so much
say so much
give so much
love so much
But if insanity is measured
by the storms we've weathered
the determination we place
in front of fear's face
and the dedication
never to take a vacation
then I want to be crazy!
Because the alternative is lazy
And maybe I'm not too much for you.
Maybe you're not enough for me.
~much love

Change the Now
Emma Price Jan 2020
live every day as if it is your last
for the now will soon be the past
and you don't want to regret
these days you can't forget
for when it has become "back then"
you won't be able to change them
but in the moment, you know how
and you can change the now
~much love

Fault
Emma Price Dec 2019
The things that happened to me before you
weren't yours
but they weren't mine either
The things that happened to me because of you
were all yours
and those weren't mine either

Simply Finished
Emma Price Nov 2019
I am done.
Done with people telling me I’m not calm enough, quiet enough, or pretty enough for them.
I am who I am.
I’m sorry I don’t behave like a placid lake, sound like a mouse, or look like a model.
I am done.
~much love

Oh, my dear
please calm my fear
by staying near

Would you mind if I stayed here forever?
Your embrace protects me from the weather

Your gentle breath make me sleep better
Your faith prepares me for whatever

Just Enough
Emma Price Sep 2019
You give me
just enough
to make me think you're not just taking

You love me
just enough
to make me think you don't hate me

You hug me
just enough
to make me think you care about me

You forget about me
just enough
to make me think you do not
~much love
Emma Price Sep 2019
With lots of pride
But no love in your eyes
What do I need to do
To be worthy of all of you
~much love

enveloping my ears as hands do a well worn mug

but I understood everything from your silence

Living Waters
Emma Price Sep 2019
The fires burn throughout the night
We try to leave them out of sight
But when darkness swallows the light
we can not ignore our plight
as it burns so bright
striking us into fright

We try to stomp them out with all our might
but only living water can make it right
~much love

You make me want to write
letting my heart take flight
fluttering toward the light
leaving behind my fright
'til it's out of mind and sight
because you and I just feels right

Dear Friend
Emma Price Aug 2019
For months I’ve prayed that you might
realize you’re not alone in the fight
and wake up to see the light
but no matter how bright
it can’t seem to catch your sight
and you’re still living in darkened fright
~much love

I struggle with the fact
that this scene isn't just another act
This time it's real

Self deprecation
is the best preparation
for accepting defeat
on the occasions you're beat
