A chance to be happy
Folake Aug 4
The path I walk looms over me like the darkness that falls at night
But today I see that sliver of light, that of the moon in dark skies.
Maybe I don't have to be sad anymore

Decided
Folake Jul 27
So over all this pain
Is it ever going to fade
I'm giving up
I don't want to try anymore
Don't feel bad for me
I really want you to know
So please let me go
Sometimes I really don't want anyone around me to help me or pity me, I would rather I was left alone. The tags on this may seem different from the poem but that's how I feel when I have space to be.

Full of pain.
Folake Jul 2
The despair I feel
Surrounds me till I can't breathe
It never goes away
New added to old
Scars turns to wounds
No time to process, it hurts till I cry
Then I stand up and walk again
Every day I feel so much pain and I don't know what to do about it

What i know
Folake Jun 29
People are damaged, messy and imperfect. They fail me time and again.

They will never be enough to mend the broken person I am, they will never be enough to heal my soul.
I'm constantly realizing that no one can help me but myself and even I don't want to.

Unfortunate
Folake Jun 21
I hate people
Even though i know i shouldn't
It's easier that way
Hating is easier than loving
So is living in the past and not forgiving
Human beings are backwards but...
I'm human too.

Fiction
Folake May 18
I really wish I existed only in paper
Existed only 2 dimensional
Existed just in writings,
Sometimes I wish I was fictional..
Just something i thought about when i feel low

Waiting
Folake Dec 2017
We are halves of the puzzle I haven't connected yet, but when does "too soon" or "not now", become the right time.
Our hearts may want to tell each other yes, but when will our mouths be ready.
We've had so many things we wanted to tell each other, stuck in this unspoken, "but because of time" we keep telling each other.
Unspoken love

Wish
Folake Oct 2017
Life is complicted,
I'm frustrated,
tired, exhausted,
I wished i could go back
Wished not wish
Past, until i realized
I'd still have to go through
Through it all again
So i wished in the past
Until i realized
Realized but then
Then what is my wish
What do i wish
Wish for
How to stop?
Stop what
Does it freeze
It can't
Because I'd freeze up in frustaration
So what is my wish
My wish
I wish
Wish....
Wish to be
Be
Be free
My wish...

Set me free
Folake Oct 2017
Let me go
If you don't want me
Set me free
Don't let me hold on
Loosen my grasp from you
If you don't want me
Set me free
I don't want to hold onto air
Set me free
If you don't love me

Hidden
Folake Mar 2017
If i told you things i did before,  told you how i used to be
Told you what I've been through
Showed you the scars.
Would you stay with someone like me
If you knew my story word for word,  knew my history.
Would you really stay with someone like me?

— The End —
