i feel more alive
in the scenes
of my dreams
than i do in reality,
i feel her gold leaf touch
ripple through my veins
while i call out her name
until she comes to me
and i can see her face
clear as day
before i’m able
to pull her close
i feel myself
float out of the
colored scenes of my dreams
and back into
the black and white
of my reality

give yourself permission
to be who you are
and still be loved for it
don’t be afraid of yourself

i stay up late
having conversations with the walls
and screaming your name
at the mirror
               what if i can’t get up today?
i have sleep paralysis
from overthinking our conversations
from last week
until today
              what if i don’t want to fight?
the monsters under my bed
have pulled out my memory box
and have thrown it around my room
for their own amusement
            what if the sun doesn’t shine today?
that’s okay,
it’s only monday
you still have the rest of the week
to recover
take it easy, you’ll be okay
sometimes isolation can be the best therapy there is

i spent my life trying to please
someone with a twisted disease
i broke myself down
and tucked my feelings away
to become the person
they wanted me to be
i let myself be watched
through the glass of a two sided mirror
of a sociopath
i wallowed my spirit away
and begged for acceptance
but there’s nothing in the world
that i could do
to let the narcissist know
that i am human too
the only thing that can please a narcissist is being miserable

the stars are falling at a faster pace
the clouds are getting closer to my face
i can see myself standing on the ground
and time seems to be the only sound
the skies are spinning
the moons are falling
i can feel my blood flowing
and my palms sweating
but the only thing hard to comprehend
is breathing

I was a dandelion
In a field of Daisies,
Waiting for you
To come along
And make a wish
Out of me
happy world poetry day!

She took the scars from her demons
And made them into wings,
For her to fly high
And paint the sky red
embrace your scars

feelings

they can be
scary  
dull
and dark

every single one
is sacred

each one is a messenger
to strangers
of who you are.

glory each one
so that if the strangers
do not grow close to you

your feelings will
and that will be
all the presences that you need
don’t be afraid to find your feelings

I feel the trees leafs
and hear the birds sing
but I only feel alive
When you are holding me
Your arms are my home

She danced to get away
From all things internal
She danced in the dark
So you couldn’t see her
When she fell apart
