Oklahoma I'm a nurse who has always loved to write. Some poems may never see the light of day due to them being too personal. I hope you do enjoy what I do share.
Now then. I have finally decided I will try my hand at publishing. So if it seems I am bogging dow 213 followers / 16.9k words
I have cried a thousand tears. I am now dry You said you wanted me to hurt You have done your aim For my love for you will not cease But yours for me now, in the breeze I am now but a husk A shell of what I was For I have let you destroy me You broke down my walls So long ago I felt secure with you guarding them Then you turned And I am now empty Your love for me Now forever in the breeze
And her tears fall down like a waterfall from green eyes Chest aching in pain unsurpassed As she sits on her couch No pictures on the wall Cold metal art instead She realizes She is truly alone No one there to comfort in her time of need She let so many things take away from her No friends No family She is truly alone crying waterfalls
Here we go again I knew it was to good to be true I was feeling happy Smiling more Laughing, loving Then out of nowhere WHACK! No reason No real trigger The old words flow in.. "you're not good enough" "he must have someone else" "you'll never work again" "might as well just die" "can't even take care of your kids" "your whole life is a lie" My heart races My tears threaten to fall I don't know why It's just there I can't turn it off GOD! Please save me!!!
This is a real problem in many lives. We can't just turn it off. Unfortunately, it controls us. We can take medicine, but it's only a bandaid. Love us, remind us we are worth it. That our fears may seem real, but you are there to protect us. Please don't judge us. Stay with us. We always need a hand...
SURRENDER YOUR HEART REMOVE THE GUARDS AND RELINQUISH THEIR SHIELDS. YOU NEED TO FEEL THIS THOROUGHLY LOVE WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE SAFE OR MEASURED SO, LOVE IRRATIONALLY. JUMP OFF A CLIFF WITHOUT CONSIDERING CONSEQUENCES, LOVE SPECIFICALLY. PAY ATTENTION ON THE SMALLER DETAILS OF THE BIGGER PICTURE, LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY. BECAUSE THERE WILL BE DAYS WHEN YOU DON’T LIKE HER, BUT THE LOVE MUST REMAIN AND IN THE EVENT THAT LOVE BREAKS YOU, LET IT BREAK. DO NOT CLOSE YOURSELF OFF OR SHUT YOURSELF DOWN. YOUR HEART WILL BE SHAPED AND RESHAPED, BUT IN THE END IT WILL STILL BE YOURS. AS HUMAN WE ARE BLESSED WITH THE SKILL OF ADAPTATION IT’S KEPT US HERE FOR EONS, YOU WILL ADAPT.
Not mine, but I really love this and wants to share it.
It would have been so easy to keep going straight Not take the turn left Straight….a mere 13 miles and I'd be at your door Straight….you'd have to face me Straight…..tell me where I went wrong 13 miles, so close, eternity away drawing a deep breath thru the tears I turn left This road….11 miles and I'll be at my door This road….face to face with myself This road…..to question what I did wrong This road…..internal interrogation to play with my demons 11 miles, so close, too fast Straight….I did not go Straight….
I'm sitting on my back porch Smoking a cigarette Looking at the stars Hazed out by smoke Oklahoma is burning Flames are all around Smells like a campfire Even in town Livestock are dead Running for the barren river Wildlife gone Majestic mountain lions Climbing in the burnt trees Only to die of smoke inhalation Oklahoma is burning River beds running dry Dear Lord above Give us rain Help us see an end to this nightmare Of Oklahoma burning
