why do i keep giving away pieces

of my heart to people who don't deserve them?
blackbiird May 24
i wish you were dead
but death is too good for you.
so I pray to god that he
has mercy on you in purgatory.

You taught me to dance in the storm
even when I couldn’t feel sunshine approaching
and in the chaos of my heart,
You calmed the waves within.
and I kept dancing wildly with You beside me.
A little hope for those who are scared to take that first step. Just trust.

on this day, blackbiird was born.
22 years later, she spread her wings
and flew from her mothers nest
into the great unknown.

It’s my birthday today! :)

"i'm holding on
why is everything so heavy?"- Chester Bennington
Gone, but never forgotten. You are missed.
blackbiird May 25

your eyes say i don't care
but your heart screams, "help me."
i watched your lips form the
words "save me"
but your voice spoke out, "i'm fine."

one week later,
dressed in black and i still
can't shake the memory
of seeing your heart break
for the final time before it eventually stopped.

You never know what someone is going through. Depression is a real thing. Always be kind.

I am not impressed,

To
Write
The
Saddest

So
This
Is
What I
Wrote:
My soul died without knowing Jesus.

for how long will you mourn
yesterday before you realize
that you're missing the best
parts of your youth holding
on to withered flowers
?

I wish I was dead.
Just pull the trigger.
That’s my only request.

live
love
laugh
was
your
mantra
but
now
you'll
never
know the
beauty
behind
those words
because you
have blown out
your
candle
You'll forever be missed, my friend.
blackbiird Mar 25

you'll never move forward
if you're always looking behind.
take the road less traveled
and see where it takes you.

you'll never grow if
you stop watering in the midst
of the drought.
keep plowing and
watch your harvest grow.

my friend in the bottle
took over my life
now I’m struggling for my life.

why are men so heartless?
blackbiird Mar 7
sometimes I want to
tell my heart to be still
but I can’t because its beating
has become dependent on this
crippling anxiety.
blackbiird May 8

what women have
birthed man tried
to put asunder
but no more
shall the fires of our
labor  be put out by
egotistical men
slopping around
the earth like castrated
pigs covered in their own
filth. what women have birthed
no man shall put asunder.

You've stripped me bare ,
exposed my weaknesses,
and torn my mask.
now all i can do
is bow down in humility
because You've positioned
me at the Cherith brook
to speak to me.

and
i've never been more grateful
to be bare with You.
I'm at a session in my life where God has led me alone to the brook where he wants to speak to me and restore all the broken things and use them for his glory. I am learning to be content as I grow closer to the Lord. I wrote this poem to express my gratitude to God for saving me and bringing me back to life piece by piece. I hope this encourages those that are hurting.

I can feel your soul touching mine
when I'm sleeping and I know I'll be okay.
you can stop watching me sleep
because I'm okay with the memory of you beside me.

whatever loss you're feeling, it'll be okay in time. You'll always have those precious memories. Hold on to those memories and keep moving forward.

She was a beautiful disaster
waiting for you to rebuild her.
blackbiird Mar 22

her heart has been broken
so many times she wonders
if it's beyond repair.

the walls she once loathed
now surround her heart,
unapproachable by man.

each night she lies
awake wondering if
anyone hears her cries.

but He hears her
and tells her heart to be still
for He will dry her tears,
take her and restore
her broken heart.
for she is His bride.

I am no longer
afraid to be a human being
to feel the sunshine
beat down on my skin
to feel the rain
soak me

to feel the pain
of stubbing my toe
against the railings

to walk barefoot
on the cold concrete
while dressing my wounds

I am afraid of
living a life
without purpose
a life filled only
with the selfish desires
of my flesh.

I am afraid
of my soul dying
without
knowing You.

blackbiird Dec 2018
a home full of misery is better than
a lifetime of pretend.
a step forward in the right direction
is better than a million steps
in the wrong direction.
a broken heart is better than
a lifetime with the wrong person.

I’d wait a thousand more years
than to live a lifetime wondering
if there is something “better.”
blackbiird May 23
i hate that you left without
saying goodbye
but my heart is grateful for the departure.

shards of broken glass
surround me as I walk
along this lonely road
listening to the sound of
the black sparrow
singing from the treetop.
blackbiird Apr 3
Invisible hearts hide the most pain
and visible hearts bleed the most in
front of a crowd of by-passers who can’t
see their blood pouring out.
Instead, their beating hearts become bleeding hearts thirsting for life, hoping for someone to give it.

I'm brOKen
but you tell me
I'm beautiful.

all she wanted was a sign that
life had not forgotten her
But all she had were the shackles
of her demons resting on her
pillow as she slept.

Can I borrow your radio while I shower?
I need to see the darkness before it slips away.
blackbiird Nov 2018
I was with you,
But you were never with me.
If I’m being honest,
We’ve lost ourselves.
Searching for perfect candor.

fragile , white~dusted fragments
of my heart on the ground
where you walked on it
like chalk dust.

If you rule with chaos,
you will reap what you sow.
Even Satan was an angel before he fell.

I chased the stars in my dreams
hoping to see them collide in reality.
but only stardust remained
when I woke.
and I knew, our collision could
never emerge from the darkness.

Color me with
Your beautiful lies
So I can watch the
Distance between
Us grow.
Color your lips
On mine with
Your red lipstick
And I’ll watch
The sparks fly
From within
My heart.
Color me you
And I’ll
Earn back the
Trust I lost.
blackbiird Apr 24
one more pill.
one more jump and you’ll be living
in a permanent state of comfortable silence.
will you save me?

do you have the courage
to believe in love
even when your dreams
catch fire within your heart?

when your vision
simply becomes an idea.

do you have the courage to love
once more?

Dear God,

please keep my head above water,
even when I feel like drowning,
I know your hands are guiding the waves.
blackbiird May 27
i still taste your sticky sweet nectar on
my lips from the time you released your
seed onto my perfect *******,
then you traced your fingertips onto
my precious flower and tasted my sweet honey, watching  it drip from your fingertips
as you plastered your mark into my sweet flower--
my breathing becoming shallow from the sensations, thoughts scattered , close to the threshold before a beautiful release of ecstasy .
A perfect deflowering carved into my memory.
blackbiird May 2018
They dwell in the shadows—
The darkness is all-consuming, reckless, obliterating
Everything in its path, wreaking havoc on her world
They surround her like a cloud of smoke, making it impossible
to breathe,
They thirst for control, they hunger for power—
They hunger for her beating heart, its rhythmic beat resonating into
Their dark, empty, lifeless souls.
They feed on her very existence: mind, body, and soul.
She struggles to fend off the toxic hands that seem to
Wrap her in their suffocating embrace, crushing the depths of her soul—
******* her into the blazing, torturous inferno of hell
Their sinister voices ******* into the depths of her mind—
Her thoughts, feelings, and actions intertwine with their
Evil and corrupt unholy caldrons.

These are her demons. They are part of her. They are her world.
They hold her in *******—
She is a prisoner waiting to be freed from her captivity.
This silence is deafening; the world has suddenly gone numb.
She is paralyzed by fear.
And in an instant, darkness engulfs her broken spirit.
blackbiird Feb 3

she spent her entire
life chasing diamonds
only to realize
that her greatest
treasure was always beside her
whispering in her ear
"you're more precious than all the riches of this world."

blackbiird Dec 2018
Don’t promise me the world if
you aren’t prepared to keep it spinning.

Don’t let me fall
if you aren’t prepared to catch me.

Don’t promise me sunshine
in the midst of the rain.


Above all:

Don’t promise to sew my heart back together
only to put a band-aid on it.
blackbiird May 23

you took an early sleep and all i can do is wonder
where you are when i watch the sun set over the mountains.
you were so young
but you'll never know what your life could have been.

In memory of my beloved friend, Jessica. Gone too soon. <3
blackbiird Dec 2018
I crave that
magical
wanderlust
love that
you gave me
in a dream.

our lips
dancing
as we wave
between the sheets
of our desire.

drip
drop
tick
tock
****

this is wonderful
counting the beats
of our hearts’ palpitations
as we enter
the threshold of
pure ecstasy

our bodies
colliding into
one being.


my body
fine-dipped
like honey
on your lips.


then I woke up.
with the thought of you on my mind.
blackbiird Feb 3

go forth
among the lake
and take a sip
of My never-ending
love for you.

quench yourself
in the goodness
of My lands.

and I shall
replenish your
soul with
eternal life.

it's not your fault

Even in the wilderness
I can feel the calmness of the
Wind as you lead me to
The river to take a sip of eternal life.

i didn't fall in love
with someone who wanted
to rewrite my story.
i fell in love with someone
who wanted to give me a new ending.

blackbiird Dec 2018
don’t pretend you can’t feel my heart
pounding through my shirt.
don’t pretend like you don’t know that
I tremble every time you’re near me.

I pretend that you’re just a friend
but you’re the ecstasy that runs
through my veins.
and I can’t pretend that
I don’t love you.
