i can see the light
it's coming now

after years of darkness
i can finally see
i have finally been able to see the world in  a new light. after being blinded by darkness for years, i can now see the positives in life and am no longer brought down by negative energy

she is beneath my skin
tangled in my hair

she is the cold wind
swirling in the air

she is the pain i feel
still can't get you out of my mind
em Feb 5
i never thought i would be free
from your wrath
your warmth
your anger
your passion
your danger

everything is different now
since you changed
since you decided
not to love me

sometimes i wish things could be
how they were when we left off
but then i remember
why we left off

it was so pure at first
so genuine
we clicked
we matched
it was magic

but you changed your mind
and you changed your heart

you made me live in fear
flinching when you raised your arm
afraid that if i did something wrong
i would be done for

i tried to be perfect
perfect for you
i only wanted you to be happy
my happiness did not matter anymore

now you are happy
good for you
i am happy too
now that i'm not with you

There is art
In your heart
Painting pictures
When I lay
My head down on your chest

There are songs in your eyes
Singing lullabies
When you hover
Pin me down
With your stare

There is a poem
On the tip
Of your tongue
I taste it
When I kiss you

You are tortured
My jaded lover
I hear it
When you won't talk

thank you for teaching me
what i could not learn
on my own

in a way you empower me
yet i constantly
am belittled
by the pressures unspoken

i am powerful
i am powerless
and i am humbled
by the sharp stabs
to my confidence

at times i feel superior
to all negative forces
but then you come around
to destroy me yet again

i will let you in no more
for i am bigger than
the insecurities
and the headaches
i am forced to endure

to be indubitably fearless
is an amazing thing
to think that nothing
could ever
hold me back

but the thought
of never again being restrained
is foreign

to be fearless
is ideal
but could never be possible
when you fill me with doubt
and regret
and negative energy

but to be fearless
is to look you in the face
and say
in trying to face my insecurities, i must face them head on with passion. i must persist, i will overcome

I...I love you.
That is the only way i can dis scribe this,
i love it when you kiss me,
your lips are soft,
and gentle,
no ones kissed my like this before.
you say you love me,
and my heart roars,
its a gushing volcano of hot lava.
you touch,
plants gardens.

your eyes,
Russet ,
i cant look away.
the way you look at me,
speaks a language,
without words.
You are Virgo ,
and i a Gemini.

you are kind.
and loving.
i cant let you out of my head.

you broke my heart.
the way you kissed me was terrible
the volcano is inactive
the garden is a decay of mold, chopped trees, and weeds
your eyes are the color of ****
and now everything is silent.
I can't believe i let you in.
at least i didn't give you anything important.
its just a heart
nothing special.
for Jacob thanks for nothing.

through thick and thin
that’s what we said
but now i look across the bed
the empty space, so big and clear
it’s all that i could ever fear

close friends at best
never more
but now it’s gone
forgotten lore

why did we
entwine our limbs
embrace in passion
on such a whim

i regret that night
our thoughts astray
clouded by the playful day

now you barely look at me
and when you do I see the guilt
it’s ok
i feel it too
but if you’d just talk to me
i’d help you realize, you’re still free

please don’t regret my body’s touch
or how you sought the sheets to clutch
but most important
don’t forget
what we had before the end
a loving friendship, down to the core
never thought I’d see the door
i’m locked outside
you have the key
through thick and thin?
guess that was just me.
