Within the darkness,
I felt it-

Your fingertips
drowning between
each individual strand
of my hair,

Your lips searching  
for comfort
in the delicate curves
of my skin-

And in mornings light,
I felt it once more-

Deep rooted memories
awaiting the return of
the fortresses that have
become your arms,

Where I shall feel
the safety of your
embrace throughout
the night once more-

Longing for it to be
a daily ritual of
waking in the presence
of your love

I’m sick
And I’m tired
I’m eating my words
As they dance on my tongue
Making me squirm as they turn
Oh I’m biting
I’m chewing
Simply swallowing my pride
For I can’t say how I feel
No matter how hard I’ve tried
For they pin me
They ***** me
Puncturing my mind
As I sit here and silence
Muted like a mime
I can’t say it
I fear it
The version that you’ll see
If I emit all of these feelings
My caged memories
For they haunt me
They taunt me
Like a stained porcelain tub
You can’t rid it of residue
No matter how hard you scrub
That’s my mind
They’re my eyes
Tinted a light shade of blue
As eroded as these beaches
I’m drowning in you
Your fingers
They’ve grabbed me
Now bruising my soul
How can one escape from your grasp-
I just long to feel whole
For it was physical
Now emotional
Unsure which one is worse
See these flashbacks you’ve gifted me
Were your most vicious curse

Perhaps one day these flashbacks will subside
Perhaps one day it’ll all end.

“..And just like that,
Emotions shifted faster than the changing seasons-
Undoubtedly as the leaves did on my favorite tree,
I seemed to be falling-
Falling a little bit more in love with you during each passing day,
But unlike the trees and the seasons-
I don’t see an end to this decent...”

It wasn’t until him- that I was able to write about the joys of love

He’d move mountains
just so he could see her,

If only he’d notice she’s been standing
beside him the entire time.

We, as humans- need to stop searching for something that’s alteady within arms reach.
Most of what we need and desire is right in front of us the whole time- try not to overlook it.

Enjoy your day/evening everyone

There’s a megaphone protruding from my chest
Begging me to say those words
The ones my mind has been craving to release
But I can’t
Oh my, I can’t
For I feel as if there’s a vice clamping down on my vocal cords
Trapping that sound within me  
Controlled emotions being blocked by subconscious thoughts
If only I can grant myself freedom from it’s grip
Then maybe I can emit those vibrations
The ones my body has been housing deep within the chambers of my mind
But not this time
