~music box~
faith Nov 2020
i feel like a music box,
only coming alive to your touch,
when you go away,
so do i,
to a place in my mind,
where it's cold and dark,
but there you are again,
with your golden fingers,
lighting me up,
and bringing the song to my lips,
letting me live.

~cliche~
faith Nov 2019
i love you from the bottom of my heart,
i hope this love never tears us apart,
you light me up,
remember the teacups?
we're meant to be,
like snow on my ski's,
you're perfect,
when i see you we just click,
i only see you in my future,
with your awful sense of humor,
i bet this all sounds super cheesy and cliche,
but it's because the cliche is true,
it all applies,
i love you.

~revived~
faith Feb 2019
the rock is revived by the water that crashes,
the water that swirls and twirls and lashes,
the same can be said of our own lives,
revived by the words and stanzas and lines,
but beware of the snares and beware of the knives,
because they are the people that want us to hide.

~run~
faith Dec 2018
run from your life,
run from the strife,
escape the pain,
there's nothing to gain,
from the hurt in your heart,
it's time to get smart,
pack your bags,
renew your tags,
speed away in your car,
it'll only leave a scar,
don't worry about her,
the reminder of who you were,
leave that life behind,
empty out your mind,
don't rethink,
you're on the brink,
it's a new chapter,
just think after.

drifting downward,
picked up by a breeze,
floating townward,
with everything at ease,
i envy this feather,
so careless and free,
i'm tied down with leather,
with nothing to see,
a weight in my heart,
a wait in my head,
my dry lips now part,
i'm on my deathbed,
my heart is still hurting,
oh when will it stop,
why can't he stop flirting,
and just set up shop,
inside my arms,
with comfort and love,
where no one will harm,
my one true love.

don’t let your feeling sway,
let yourself feel this bliss.

water trickles slowly downward,
into puddles quickly softly,
falling gently onward outward,
current moving promptly strongly,
feeling breezes gently blowing,
dancing water over boulders,
water always always flowing,
seeping creeping up my shoulders,
voices calling under water,
drawing closer hands around me,
eyes now closing time for slaughter,
maybe next time you will flee.

then hear the buzzing of the bees,
i touch the towline of the swing,
then toss my head and start to sing,

"oh joy! how much i love the air,
The wind that tangles up my hair,
oh yes! how much I love the grass,
a pane of fuzzy looking glass,"

i wake up to the sun and clouds,
the sound of water and roaring crowds,
the water swiftly rushes as it goes on by
i sigh to myself and look to the sky.

~joy~
faith Mar 2018
what is joy?
is it music in your headphones?
is it the face of a little boy?
is it feeling renewed strength in your bones?
is it laughing for the first time in forever?
is it being applauded for your part in a play?
is it knowing that your past is in the place of never?
is it giving love to a stray?
i believe that joy is all of these and none at all,
joy is found in god and god alone,
joy is found in something small,
maybe joy is something we'll find when we're grown.

mouth the words,
then sing like that caged bird.

~beauty~
faith Dec 2017
they say that beauty is blonde hair and blue eyes,
they say that beauty is being thin and wearing makeup,
they say that beauty is smiling and not thinking for themselves,
they say that beauty is only there when others say it is,
they say that beauty is not for everyone,
they say that beauty is always being happy,
but that's a lie,
i know that beauty is every hair and eye color,
i know that beauty is every shape and every blemish,
i know that beauty is in a smile and that being smart is a part of it,
i know that beauty is always there,
i know that beauty is in everyone and for everyone,
i know that beauty is letting yourself feel emotions,
i know that everyone is beautiful.
Don't judge people, everyone is beautiful.

why are you so cruel,
you spin me around like a whirlpool,
i hate you,

but now today is done,
you think you have won,

he sent me a letter,
it made me feel better,
his letters are from far away,
down by the coast and down by the bay,
he said hello,
and he wanted to know,
if I still loved him,
or if this was now something more grim,
he knew that I had been depressed,
more like extremely stressed,
he now is coming to visit,
but I won't be explicit,
now he is here,
i have nothing to fear,
he now holds me to his chest,
as i take in a new breath,
this is love,
it fits me like a glove,
i hope this isn't a dream,
or a huge scheme,
he is my other half,
the one who makes me laugh,
he is my friend,
please don't let this end,
his letters are from far away,
down by the ocean's spray,
he said he had something to remind me of,
that we are the definition of true love.
This one doesn't make much sense...

i'm the "******",
homeschooled and apparently homeschoolers have no friends,

i miss my home,
my friends,
my old life,
i hate technology sometimes!
it's a wall between real people,
even with "friends" people are on their phones talking to people they aren't with!
they don't talk with the people that are standing right there!!
why can't this generation be different?
why can't we all just talk,
really,
really talk,
i want this so badly,
i've been on the outside for so long,
and it's because people are scared,
and stupid,
they can't see what's right in their face,
they can't see that i'm hurting alone,
alone with my hurting soul.
I'm so done with people right now! I'm tired of being unaccepted. I want to move back... P.S. Sorry for the venting, I just really needed to get that out and thanks for reading if you've gotten this far!

slowly making their trek up a hill.
honking and yelling.

the wind,
whistling through the trees making me shiver.

the occasional plane,
going on its merry way up in the sky.

the low hum that always seems to be in the air.

the bright lights of the city,
blinding me.

the headlights carving the way along a dark path.

all the lights on in a house,
makes night seem like day.
