I’ve always been a loner.
Nonconformist.
Condoner of my own space.
                         ~
Don’t pry my doors and expect my walls not to quiver
Two diamonds watch from diamond tents the diamonds on a diamond fence
sunlight plays some tricks on me when diamonds in your eyes I see.

Jewels,
rubies?, but she's Sapphire blue
pearls?, but she's a diamond too

the music box with ballerina
shakes my world for I have seen her
in my waking dream.

Virtuous
I think the sun has grown jealous
Of my friendship with the moon
I prefer dusk to dawn
And midnight instead of noon

Remembering is a water slide
The highest, the fastest
A strong heart enjoys it
While the weakest fears it

I delight in it
Going from high to low
From low to high

Though you are far away
Here it's summer and I like sliding
I've always liked the moon better than the sun.
I've always painted in black, not in colour.
I've always been a little hidden, never fully exposed.
I've always written, never said.
I've always been afraid of the monster under the bed.
A poem every day.

Stop breaking yourself
to fix others.
Surely it would be okay to be a little selfish
and prioritize your own feelings.
I can't seem to stop breaking myself to help people. Its getting a little too much to bear. My heart keeps breaking. But I tell myself its okay, as long as they're okay.

He tried to write on me and call it art.
I wrote myself and called it love.
So, why does this feeling
Excite me so?
This breathlessness
That threatens me

I'm pretty sure
It's killing me
To feel
This way
