Mother Earth she lives within me
Tantalizing I feel her breathing
Fires in the lungs of steel
She will take so I can heal

Stormy waves I cry for help
Drowning in a sea of doubt
Mother, I cannot make it through
“But my child, I chose you.”
Haley Lorish Nov 2018
Bittersweet and lemon treats
Tanking troubled hatless heaps  
Salty horizon flogs sweet beach
Sandy skin, too soft a peach
Your thumb brushing my left cheek
Can you still smell the apple’s reek
Skewed hearts remain in heat  
Devine reminds a heart to beat
Kept up in the saddles seat
King of every bit of hate, wash
These battered palms disgrace
Love has sunk the ship of face
Tulips lack the need for space
Whips of stars appear in plight
Have you only fight or flight?
Good wills only break the bank
And I’ve only left myself to thank
  Jul 2018 Haley Lorish
Lifes a ride;
Gripping it tight
And screaming
Laughter makes the journey
Mine, and sharing the pieces
Smashed with a smile
Baptizes my soul
With Yours; Love Us
If you dare to live
Wild and free
Within the waves
We make a~part
Haley Lorish Sep 2016
You smell like rain
In you love is born again
Only fiercer this time
Deeper and faster I fall
You are a fortress
And I am a stall

A sweet musty rain
Yet my heart still feels
A bit of strain
The higher I get
The quicker I think
When will you finally
Just let me sink

when you walk to the beach
All my favorite things
You feel like home
And taste like dreams
But I'm filled with fear
Could it be our end is near

On that wooden walkway
You have my heart
Take all my love
Every last part
My soul yearns yours
Connected at best
Feel it in my burning chest
Fuel my fire and reach
My desires, I've forgotten
How Amazing this could be

you pass those green plants  
Your love, a breath of fresh air
But only after drowning
Do I find it unfair you
Filled my world with despair
But I can't turn away because
For now you smell like rain
A sweet musty rain
when you walk to the beach
On that wooden pathway
You pass those green plants

I lost my heart, to love
I lost my mind, to love
I lost my faith, to love
I lost my hope, to love
I lost my passion, to love
I lost my happiness, to love
I lost my words, to love
I lost my hunger, to love
I lost my wonder, to love
I lost my body, to love
I lost my control, to love
I lost my motivation, to love
I lost my brain, to love
I lost my myself, to love
I lost my life, to love
I lost it all, to love
I lost it all *for you

The most dangerous place is inside your own head.
Haley Lorish Jun 2015
I'm fading away,
but you'll never see past my
camouflage smile.
