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

i have always been
a product of my own self destruction
my heart sinking deeper and deeper
down the darkest path
every time i try to speak

i am now free
i have found my voice
i am no longer caged by my own limitations
i have set myself free
by letting go
of my insecurities

i can soar on my own
without the help of others
i can fly freely
without the fear of
being put back
in that cage i once built for myself
em Jan 14
don't push me away
like you always do

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

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 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
em Jan 14
i don’t want to lose you
i don’t want to be with you
i don't want to be without you
i don’t want you in my life
i can’t imagine a life without you

you make me crazy
you are crazy
you have no idea
how crazy i am

you have no idea
how much you make my head spin
trying to wrap myself around
your conniving messages
trying to understand
why you do this to me
trying to understand
why i still fall for you
trying to understand
my first poem on here! this one is about my experience in a relationship
