Walls on every side caving in
Dark shadows creeping in from every corner
When you’re nothing, so is kin
In this cold land becoming foreigner

Turned away from light
Not used to how bright so it burns my eyes
Limping in the night
Every creature of the moon has set their sight
With one final movement
A mouth trying to tell me, “it’ll be alright”

Trying to climb down the cabin
The rotting wood no longer holds
Giving into the unsatisfying sin
Well aren’t you ******* bold?

Turned away from light
Not used to how bright so it burns my eyes
Limping in the night
Every creature of the moon has set their sight
Slowly tearing me apart
With no remorse bite from bite

Unbearably so, time is fleeting
Aching, want and isolation growing
All this since our last meeting
And the continuity of the ever flowing

Dripping of salt
It’s not my fault
Please stop
It’s not my fault
It’s not my fault
It’s not my fault

Isolation, like a mist
A shroud right over my eyes
Declaration with a kiss
My heart races, tells me goodbye
So as it is, I'd like to think
One day I'll find the stars again
Touch it gently, hold it high
Have to look up so tears don't shine
Like the glistening jewels in the sky
Can't give my wish up just to cry
Hopes no longer high, I doubt he'll realize
So off it goes, a piece of me.
Darkness washes over, I greet it
Look on down, ready to jump
While thinking of days gone by with smiles and fun
Too late to look back, I cannot run.
And with a blink of an eye,
like a setting sun,
In a place like this
I need no gun.
Just one ripple or two
Life continues on,
without me and you.
Birds perched on the tree
leaving swaying in the wind,
Still open their breaks to sing
Life ends on a whim.

Almost a year now,
but my heart feels a way
Almost a year now,
it all aches the same
I think back to my lowest point
The time after split to fight
You moved on so quickly
While the river pulled me down under
Now rejection hits hard again
I feel my chances are slim
Almost a year now,
Come with me and stop this agony
As I sit here with a wish in my heart
Out of reach, can't grasp that far
Drowning in the depths,
of a thickening tar.

A sea of blue,
a golden hue
A meaningful kiss,
called me a *****.
The sweetness I miss
turned to bitterness...
Sienna Oct 2019
There's no one here,
I've been left alone
Just my own downfall
Clinging on the telephone
I wait for a call
He doesn't know
Something so small
Decides my high or low
I'd give my all
For him to show
Love or want so tall
And smiling cheeks that glow
So when I walk the hall,
I know it's right to go.

Indecision set me free
Nothing is very clear to me.
In this place, I cannot see
I'd rather just lay down and go to sleep.
Exhausted from the weight I carry,
Bags under my eyes show so weak and weary.
Lost in thought, lost in mind,
Slowly starting to lose track of time.
With such a grasp, I cannot climb,
What is mine? Who am I?
A cry for help is nothing more than a sigh.
In this world we all die,
Even before one might realize.
Just when you think you're alive
Your wings are taken and you cannot fly.
Left there stranded, left with a lie,
Being open might lead to doom and demise.
You see it even on the other side,
So look with those pleading eyes,
Leaving a mess of black lines.
The ones hurting you the most are just your type,
Be left alone with your feelings and you just might-
Have nowhere left to go tonight.

Dear future daughter or son
I love you so with all my heart
That you'll know as soon as life's begun
I’ll never hurt you on purpose
Here I promise I’ll give you my all
Even after you stand confident and tall
I am someone you’ll be able to turn to when in need
If your heart is broken just come to me
Mommy will know best, and I’ll help you heal
Never will you be alone or forced to kneel
You’ll go somewhere in life, far to where your dreams call you
Like I followed mine to have you
I hope my suffering and pain has been plenty to rid you of yours
Take this and watch all the opportunities and doors
They will open wide with possibility and life
As my arms open wide with nurturing and love
Watch the sky, study the clouds
They move at their own pace and still get around
Listen to trees whisper among each other
They stay close but grow independently, as did mother
See the night sky bloom with stars
And the planets find their destiny from Pluto to Mars
See the waves kiss the sand
You can be whatever you want, whether woman or man
Disparity is a virtue even when you won’t find immediate clarity
It’ll bring hardships but prosperity
Where you won’t find solidarity you’ll eventually find popularity
From your attitude and mind’s wise unfollowing of the technicalities
Don’t be afraid my baby, when your thoughts run wild and free
Taming them isn’t always a necessity
Just learn who you are and hold it close at heart
Take all the colors of your personality- paint now with your art
You’re going to be unrelenting, brave and strong-willed
Do what you must, even when tough times call for the swallowing of a bitter pill
Keep going even when people cause you to fall ill
Run, my honey, run and run
Run, run, run to where you need to go
Run, my darling to where you know
Run and keep running to the lights beautiful flow
As it casts on about and lets out an astounding glow
It is where you’ll find your home, and let it be so
Let these words guide you through life
One day you’ll be born, and my letter you’ll set sight
I love you future daughter or son, you’ll know wrong from right
And I’ll love and love with all my might.
I will treat my future daughter or son much better than my mother treated me.
