Live
Zoë Green Oct 2017
To survive
We need food, water, and rest.

But to live
We need friendship, love, trust, and hope.

Because with those we are surviving not living.

Heart
Zoë Green Oct 2017
In our minds we are not contained

We need our hearts just the same

For a heart without mind is pure strength and passion

But mind without heart is just hate and aggression

Identity
Zoë Green Sep 2017
When you've been broken for so long you forget what it's like to be whole

  You forget what it's like to be in a room without wanting to weep to the floor

  You wonder what it's like to smile without pain instead of through it

Most of all you wish to know what it's like to look in the mirror and see yourself

To see yourself without the front we give and the walls we build

Because when you look in the mirror you see what others see

Not your true identity

Hopeless Life
Zoë Green Sep 2017
My arrow drives deeply into his neck and knees by halves

I draw the arrow out drowning him in his own blood

Shifting my aim across the bow

I curve out my knife, look at the wound

clutch it like it's me who's dying

That's the day I stopped believing in hopeless life

Broken
Zoë Green Aug 2017
Eyes: beg to closing
Heart:pleads to quit aching
Mind: prays to stop racing
I'm breaking
And no one is her to save me

Left
Zoë Green Jul 2017
your love was so strong
your heart was so sweet
  you broke me so soft
   you left me so weak

Dear War,
Zoë Green Jul 2017
Your eyes filled with fire

Your hands a murderous weapon

Yet your heart isn't filled with hate

You misshape our thoughts

Convincing our hearts of purity

We give into you

And you destroy our aspirations

But we retain hope

Continuing to look for our sane minds
I have many family members that have fought in wars and when they come back they're never quite the same.

After the End
Zoë Green Jul 2017
I walked heavy hearted

The weight of life was pushing down on my soul

There were so many question

And yet not one answer

A knock fell upon my door

A flood of overwhelming emotion traveled through me

I saw her

I felt her beautiful brown hair

I embraced her warm presence

I saw her fce and regained my heart

Then she quickly faded away

My eye opened against everything in me

She was gone

And I was never getting her back

Beauty in Darkness
Zoë Green Jul 2017
Your heart is an ocean

You bring death and despair

But you have life thriving inside you

Your soul is a fire

Wrathful and destructive

But you can bring new life

Your heat provides warmth

But we must never forget you can burn

Your thoughts twist our perception

But they set us on course

When Left alone we long for you

But together we push you away

At our purest we cannot see you

But in our darkest hour your
presence is clear  

Your image is threatening

Yet we give into your care

We are nothing against you

And can be nothing without you

— The End —
