Sura Apr 2020
"I want you,
in the best of ways.

I want to make things go as far
as possible together
for as long as possible.

I want to make
you feel safe.
I want you to
support me.

And love me hard,
kiss me when I need it.

To never hide anything
but to tell me when
something is wrong."

But you never gave me any of that.

You lied to me,
and made me dig myself much deeper.
Deeper into a whole that would start to suffocate me.
I'm a Phoenix, and I will rise from the ashes that you caused after burning me.
Sura Apr 2020
I don't think I bloomed
I think my roots got deep.
But I didn't grow
I have to keep it all buried and not let it show
Sura Mar 2020
always keep fighting
always stand tall.
even when you struggle
I won't let you fall.
always keep trying,
to love the life you live.
even when you're tired,
you've got some more time to give.
always be yourself,
even if you're strange.
let your freak flag fly,
and don't ever change.
always keep your head up,
you are not alone.
you've got an angel by your side,
and a family all your own.
always keep smiling,
even when life is tough.
and never, ever forget that
you are enough
I overcame a very rough point in my life, and wrote this poem as a thank you to those who helped.
