my heart is empty
my lungs are burdened
my happiness is gone for now

my eyes miss their sparkle
my cheeks long to smile, but
my mind forgot how

why don't we
Katie Nicole Oct 2014
why don't we
just curl up together
in the soft blankets of my bed
we'll shut out the world
and all of its harm
and be cozy together instead

you, old friend, have lost yourself
all life has left your eyes

your emotion is gone
your passion - gone

when i left, did your life leave too?

and there you weren't
Katie Nicole Aug 2014
i spotted your face from miles away
and here you were, here in my world
but this didn't seem right
why were you here?

so i moved closer to you
and asked what you were doing here
you started talking about moving
about doing anything to live closer to me

your words rambled, but I picked up a few
mostly I just looked at you
but the next words you said
changed my life forever

"I just wanted to tell you that I love you"

I was on a cloud of happiness I'd never neared before
every part of me weakened and all I wanted was a kiss
he was my dream guy- a guy I already loved
and now he loved me too*

of course, my heart was soon crushed
when my alarm went off
I opened my eyes
and there you weren't

one more chance
Katie Nicole Aug 2014
that's all we have
before i leave for months.
one more chance
to make us "us"

i admit, i'm nervous
for failure- for a mistake.
what if i don't look right,
or i mumble, or i shake?

but i guess we'll see
what starts or ends.
will we be a couple,
or just stay friends?

ruining lives
Katie Nicole Aug 2014
you have no idea
how many lives you ruin
just by being you

your beautiful heart
and your flawless body
never leave my mind

your smile keeps me
from considering
any not-so-wonderful man

those poor souls
could never ever
compete with you

but they have no idea
you are ruining their chances
with your perfect heart

won't you stop
ruining lives
and instead join mine?
(you are perfect)

oh, how i smile :)

every single imperfection

how can i end this abuse?

this power you have over me is overwhelming
and **i won't put up with it anymore

Katie Nicole May 2014
My Beloved,

I wonder where you rest your head tonight
I wonder the warmth of your skin
I wonder if you laughed, or cried today
I wonder what your hope lies in

I wonder if you have talent, or wittiness, or charm
I wonder if you wish to have me tucked beneath your arm

I wonder where you are tonight and why you're not with me
But I know soon enough, My Love, together we will be
Your Love

your old socks haunt me
as they linger in my drawer

Touching all my innocent matched pairs.

you had slipped them to me
one frosty night when the cold nipped at my toes

An act of a gentleman.

but now what am i to do?
you're gone, but your socks remain

Each opening of my drawer kindles the coldness I feel.

you and your socks betrayed me
none of you comfort me anymore

*But at least the socks decided to stay.

the happiest times
Katie Nicole May 2014
sometimes the happiest times
are those spent with no one
time lost in thoughts
time beneath the sun

time resting in the sand with
my hair blown a mess
the light warms my skin
evaporating stress

the waves they crash
and the gulls they cry
but from me you'll hear
only a happy sigh

the worst moment comes
when i'm forced to leave
when the air grows cold
my heart starts to grieve

i hate to go
but i know i should
today's wonder has past
the sun has left for good

yet the cold cannot remove
what forever will stay
the engraved memory
of that happy day

Emerges and shines.

You sure stole mine.

I wish I could forget.
I wish I could move on too.
I hate that I miss us.
I hate that I can't hate you.

why and how

it's so hard to be happy
when you're so far away.
how am i to live?
how can i survive today?

i've been on a search
but mostly i feel stranded.
why should i keep looking?
why shouldn't i abandon?

sometimes i don't understand
why you aren't here now,
but life wouldn't be life
if i knew every why and how.

today i thought of you,
i craved to sit with you and chat.
i had forgotten how you left me,
how you want no part of "that".

the rain washes down the window,
drowning my soul in part.
now the only rush i feel
is an empty, broken heart.

i watched you grow to love me,
waiting for you to commit.
who knew i'd be left lonely,
this is life now. this is it.
