Best
Zoe Grace Jun 5
The pain is still there
Sometimes, under the surface
It never quite completely went away
But it is fading.

Sometimes the burning itch
Reappears on the seam
Of my arms
But I tell it I do not need it

Thoughts about my weight
About my face
I cannot escape them
I can correct them

Eventually it fades  
I am trying my best

Irresitible Connection
Zoe Grace Jun 5
I am drawn to it
Theres no doubt
Now that ive glimpsed behind the curtain
Theres no way I could live without

The wisdom there, the fantasy
All grounded within reality
Cleanse a room with a loud noise
Poise is no longer mandatory

Crystals, carving sigils
This is where I belong
After so long
I have finally found a place
About a month ago, it drew me in. I feel an intangible but irresistible connection.

Enough
Zoe Grace Jun 5
We've gone so far now
We know each other

Floated amomgst the clouds together
Swam to the darkest depths of our minds
Ran on white sands and cheered each other on
Written ransom for unruly emotions

As the curtains close on the next act
Never are we wondering what to do next
We follow out hearts, and our minds
We are each enough for the other

We've gone so far now
We know each other

The touch of the body
The caress of the heart
The sync of the minds
We are enough and more.
Nobody is on the same level as you when it comes to me, H. You understand all of me, and you love me even more for it.

She doesnt want it
Zoe Grace Nov 2020
One friend persues the other
Cloaked in twisted fantasies
Oblivious to her discomfort
His ears unwilling to hear the word
                             "No"
Making comments unsolicited
Longing looks innappropriate

She doesn't want it.

In Memory
Zoe Grace Nov 2020
A heart of gold stopped beating
Two shining eyes now at rest
God broke our hearts to prove
That he only takes the best
Seven years ago today, my Pop collapsed in his bedroom and was declared braindead. This is the poem my mum wrote for him. Pop, if you can see this, I love you. I miss you every day.

A different world
Zoe Grace Nov 2020
Time is non existant
The world around me shuts down
I transfer myself wholeheartedly
Into a fantastical adventure
For I am no longer myself
I am the protagonist
Sleep, I need not
But answers, well..
Answers I need to live
Books.

New name, New face
Zoe Grace Nov 2020
You used to go by another name
AMELIA
Now you're somebody new, and your name is
NIKOLAI

When i was with you
My heart was at W.   A.    R.  
Questions and screams and bloodshed
Now you have my friend
I just hope you treat him right
You made out with him in the park
But did you really feel?
He doesnt deserve
To feel what i felt
When you had my heartstrings in your hands
I found this out today. New news.

Inspiration

I write to feel
I read to breathe
I look at you for inspiration
The stars in your eyes
The gleam in your smile
The love in your heart

I write to feel

You are my inspiration

Peonies
Zoe Grace Nov 2020
Arranged in neat rows
Colours bursting from the ground
Such a sweet smell
All around us is the sound

Of tittering old ladies,
And boasting old men
Life is wonderful, the sun is bright
Here in the peony garden
my family took a little field trip today and this hit me on the way home

His

His
His body is a temple
Sturdy and strong

His voice is beautiful
Deep and meaningful melody

His behaviour so heavenly
But his whispers and his touch sinful

Energy
Zoe Grace Oct 2020
To read is to breathe
To write is to drink
To listen is to eat and
To wonder is to believe
Literature is energy for the soul

Wheel
Zoe Grace Oct 2020
A wheel inside my heart spinning so fast it makes me dizzy
And the farther away he gets
The faster it spins
As if there is an invisible chord un-reeling from it
Stretching the distance between us
A real connection
I dont know what i would do
If the chord ever snaps
H you know how much I love you. We're a year and almost a month strong now. ❤

Doubt
Zoe Grace Oct 2020
What a feeling it is
To see your friends talk without you
And believe that they don't want you
But to be told that they do
I love my friends, i really do, but sometimes i think they dont really want me around

My Love
Zoe Grace Jul 2020
I love you
I will always love you
I will love you until I die
And if there is life after that
I will love you still.
I stole a quote, but it's worth it for you, H. Every word is true.
Its not an exact quote don't shoot me

Triple Text
Zoe Grace Jul 2020
I texted him
Yeah?

Three times
Okay?

He hasnt responded in two hours
So?

Hes annoyed at me
Hes not annoyed at you

Hes mad at me
Hes not mad at you

He doesnt want to talk to me
Hes probably doing something important

I dont want to bother him
*Then don't. Hes busy, you ******* baby. Stop whining
A conversation I had with myself.

I tried to fix the italic, it wouldn't work, i'm leaving it.

Touch
Zoe Grace Jun 2020
Whispered words
Hushed tones
Breath that quickens
Face that reddens

Trembles take over
Shaking, reaching
Sweat starts to form
Your touch frees me
You see a side of me that nobody else does, H.

Haiku for H

A comfort like no other
And the sweetest kiss
You asked for a Haiku, and I finally wrote you one.

Dance in the dark
Zoe Grace Jun 2020
Take me out into the starlight
High above the ground
Pull me close
Play an old french love song
Grip my hand in yours
Take my waist
Dance with me until we both realise
Neither of us are good at it
Hold me sweet and soft
Sway with me to the melody
Nobody and nothing else
Exists in that moment
But for you and I, my love
Words can't describe how amazing my night was, H. But these come close.

I'm not good with words

Girl I once knew
Zoe Grace May 2020
I knew a girl once...
Who is she? You'll see

I knew a girl once,
She was just like you or me
She never knew what was going on,
Didn't know how to act or to be.

I knew a girl once,
She was always really scared, unsure
Even though she tried her hardest
She was so insecure.

I knew a girl once,
She hated her appearance
She questioned every little thing
And wondered if people would care about her disappearance

I knew a girl once,
She was in a bad place
But then she got closer to you, and whenever you talked
It put a smile on her face

I knew a girl once,
Who waited by the phone
She texted you until three am
And suddenly she didnt feel so alone

I knew a girl once,
You helped her so much, you'll never know
Your kindness, your humour
As a person, it helped her grow

I knew a girl once,
Who came out of her shell
Now she can smile without trouble
And all is finally well

I knew a girl once...
Now shes Happy and Free
I knew a girl once,
And that girl is me.
Another appreciation poem for my person- I just love him so much, I can't help it.
He saved me from myself. He helped me see the light

Nicknames
Zoe Grace May 2020
Your touch lingers on my skin
A hand to my cheek
One passionate set of lips to another
Your teeth that grazed my neck so freely

You call me your siren
Beautiful and fair, a voice to match

To that, I call you my Sailor
For I am drawn to you as much as you are to me
I know in my heart that I chose you
And I'll follow you wherever you go

You call me your fae
Irresistable and enchanting

To that, I call you my Angel
You saved me from my darkest place
When I'm with you, my heart soars
And I feel so high above the clouds I forget my own name.

He's perfect and I love him so

I'm doing much better now
Than what I was before
Every little thing used to set me off
But now I don't mind them anymore

Haven't had a mental breakdown
In a month and two weeks
I know exactly who to thank
And he knows who he is

He's made my life so much better
By just being there for me
Holding me, kissing me, telling me I'm beautiful
Oh, and the oversized hoodies.
I'm back, minus some of the emotional baggage i had when i was here last!  My life is so much better now after i finally opened up to some friends, confessed a few things, and i dom't think i could be happier.

I'm getting.... better?
Zoe Grace Sep 2019
Today i realised
That for the past month
I've been better and smiled more
Than i did all of last year.

I'm so much better now
Thanks to my friends
Who helped me through
My darkest times.

And even though i still sometimes go
To that dark, horrible place
They are still here
To take me home again.

Thank you for trusting me enough

Who you truly are
On the inside.

I love you,
No matter what your name is
If you're my sister or my brother
You'll always have a place in my heart
I love you so much. You're my best friend and my favourite.
I feel so touched that you trust me enough to tell me.
I would do anything for you, A. I want you to know that.

Creeping in again

Right or wrong?!

Sick and twisted
Blood and gore

Ever thought before.

"What's a funeral without a bit of fun?!"

Stop it
I'm scared
Please

Your speech is slurring
As you scream at me

Tell me i never listen
Tell me i'm not good enough
Tell me i'm a disgrace
It's nothing new.
I get home and suddenly i have at least two people screaming at me for no good reason. Fun.
