the heart is the most touched
yet cannot be held
do not let it be broken
by those who are not worthy
give it to a lover who bears warm arms
and endless words of poetry
water it with a soft hand
and it’s vines shall stretch for miles
sing it the heartfelt songs of a childhood
one dreams of
and the nightmares will disappear

i must find the light in me
so that i may guide myself
through the darkest days without you
i must hold my own hand
as yours is not in sight
my eyes are closed, but i will find my way

to the end of the tunnel i go

i undressed my secrets for you
articles of clothing thrown around
like words on a chalkboard
wrinkled and left to sit
where have you gone
my world is moving in reverse now  
and my zipper is coming back up

empty promises are full
filled with unplanted flowers
by the voices of our loved

the seeds whisper ***** words
that are used against us
they are manipulation
in its most exquisite form

we are completely blinded
we are fooled to think it’s love
let me tell you a secret
empty promises are not

you placed me in your box
and taped all 4 sides down
you were kind enough to leave
a small quarter-sized hole
allowing me to breathe
every night
you would whisper cruel words
but some nights your heart took over
and you touched my soul
each day, the hole got smaller and smaller
until i was trapped under my own lungs
waiting for your evil whispers

happy father’s day
to the man who stole my soul
you danced with the devil
and held my hand as you did  
forced me to stand on your
unpolished shoes and sway
i sobbed as the song of life mocked me
happy father’s day.

as the dark skies eat the sun whole
your biggest fears are not the monsters under the bed
they are the tall, dark shadows
that lurk into your adolescent room
to steal your innocence with no permission
