Silent Battles
Kambria Keelie Nov 2019
Unimaginable blessing
gone doleful
till next time my angel
Written during a time in my life that things got relativly hard and i couldn't talk about it.

Dose
Kambria Keelie Feb 2019
I know this feeling is just a lack of dopamine,
Believe me when I say I'm trying
Trying
Trying
Trying
Trying to find some dopamine
To motivate me...

Scorned-ish
Kambria Keelie Jan 2019
People ruin cities for me and next thing I know, I'm taking the longest route home.

I loved chocolate covered strawberries til someone told me that they remind them of me.

I think of all the sweet words that once made my heart melt... It's as cold as stone now and I cringe at the thought of someone calling me "their baby". Don't.

I'd rather have no one adore me than to have feelings for people who just ignore me.

Full
Kambria Keelie Dec 2018
I am an endless void
People poor their overflowing problems into me... I'm full.
Please find another parcel to contain them,
Overwhelming and suffocating feelings that are not my own, but emotions of others pain.
One more word to spill and I surely will collapse.

Ow my heart
Kambria Keelie Nov 2018
Please tell me I'm worth being loved
as much as I love others.
Tell me I deserve to be treated better than what I settle for.
That these tears to will fade like the heartache I once more bare across my face.
I am so tired...tired of losing this game called "love" and being cheated out of my kindness.

Gone

You're not in my dreams anymore, as though you've faded to the darker corners of my mind.

Desiderata
Kambria Keelie Nov 2018
Go placidly amid the noise and haste,

and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender

be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly;

and listen to others,

even the dull and the ignorant;

they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,

they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,

you may become vain and bitter;

for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble

it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs;

for the world is full of trickery.

But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;

many persons strive for high ideals;

and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.

Especially, do not feign affection.

Neither be cynical about love;

for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment

it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,

gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,

be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,

no less than the trees and the stars;

you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you,

no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,

whatever you conceive Him to be,

and whatever your labors and aspirations,

in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,

it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.


- Max Ehrmann

Intertwined lovers
hands discovering new skins
lips locked and hazed eyes

Carmel
Kambria Keelie Jun 2018
Your eyes never seem to leave mine.
But how could I not stare at the flowing Carmel that runs through them.

Oh, how you make me feel...soft.
Like a single blade of grass, galantly dancing in the wind without a care in the world.

Just dancing, freely.
I'd dance my nights away with you if it meant I could spend the mornings wrapped in your arms, gazing at Carmel hazed eyes.

Good Hurt
Kambria Keelie Feb 2018
I miss scrapping my knee and my mother running to my rescue
Fighting with my siblings over the saturday morning cartoons
Belly aching laughters
Bonfire burnt legs and running through the snow to save them
Sunburned skin from hours of jetskiing at the lake
70mph winds hitting my iced face on the rocket
Broken heels and memorable nights
Mosquito bites from sleepless nights beneath the moon
Lost phones and genuine hearts gained
cross stitched scars and new hobbies
I miss hurting in a way that healed me...until then.

Faded Heart
Kambria Keelie Feb 2018
How can you miss something you've never held on to long enough to be yours?
deprived of lips you've never touched
longing for a warmth you've never had before
restless anxiety
Why do we sabotage the unknown? out of fear to be loved and adored?
feeling childish over non-existent efforts to be happy
I miss her faded heart...

Jack, Jameo and Jose.
Kambria Keelie Jan 2018
I'd never leave a night without my favorite men.
Jack, made me feel ambitious and protected.
Jameson, warmed me when the nights were too cold to bare.
And lastly, Jose, I'd never have a dull moment when he was around. He always knew how to lift my spirits when life was out of lemons.

I'd leave them all for you in a heart beat, but you've opened yours to me only to reveal a love as cold as the ice cubes in my honey Tennessee.

Where is the nearest liquor store? My men and i have much catching up to do.

Depression seasonally
Kambria Keelie Nov 2017
I'm tired and always cold
Almost finished a family size box of Cheerios...food comas.
Lack of motivation because it's so gloomy and cold outside.
So, it seems like a better idea to stay in my warm solitude, rather than being productive and having a life.
But this too shall pass shortly,
It's just depression seasonally.

Open tabs
Kambria Keelie Mar 2017
I wish I was as happy as I pretend to be
Scared of unspoken defeat, who would care?
I'm most vulnerable alone when my thoughts are racing
Like a web browser with millions of open tabs, thousands of book marks I never seem to reopen
My mind is tired and restless
My body wears evidence of emotional exhaustion like a blanket
This outbreak of sorrow won't last but even then, when all seems ok...The storm will come back.

High Maintenance
Kambria Keelie Nov 2016
I'm sorry that i can't save you from the chaotic life you crave so much
I wish I was as motivating as ******* and money
If i could give you a life free of the struggle you'd be living in luxury
never having to lift a finger
never having to worry about your next dollar
never feel unhappy and empty
but I'm just a friend willing to give up my content for your guilty pleasures
I'd give so much but it seems I already have
And it's yet to be enough to satisfy your taste buds
I wish I as motivating as ******* and money

Untitled
Kambria Keelie Oct 2016
Fall in love with their eyes
They'll never "change"
But that is a lie.

I once saw luminous golden hues that shimmered, on those days you were affectionate.

Some days there was fall brown with evergreen specs, in those times you were at your best and truly yourself.

When I couldn't see hues, you were at your worst.

But the last time I had gotten lost in your eyes, there was no color change...and it was the most horrid thing I've seen.

Hate never looked so depressing that night, your eyes mirrored what I fear most.

Puzzled Lives
Kambria Keelie Aug 2016
For a prolonged moment, I thought my world was crumbling beneath me.
Every beautiful sunrise I've seen had scolded me to sleep. Every savory food I once craved, an exhausted effort to cook. Every passionate hobby seemed to be another task to my list.
Beauty was bland, love was lost.
But just then, something so irrelevant and small had moved mountains inside me.
I found yet another missing piece along my journey.

You told me I could be anything in this world, so I became your favorite brandy. Because for just one moment, I wanted you to hold me with a sense that maybe, just maybe I've been your sweet brandy all along.
drink me
*let me warm your heart tonight

The Unknown
Kambria Keelie Aug 2016
Maybe being lost is the best part of finding yourself,
completely and utterly engulfed in the unknown.
Every turn is a new opportunity to learn something about yourself you never knew before, there's beauty in that entire journey.

Discover yourself to the fullest, reach deep within,
find that thing and run with it.
That thing is what makes you, you.
And nobody can ever take that from you.

Euphoria
Kambria Keelie Mar 2016
I long for something more
More than lonely hand holding
More than lifeless lip locks
More than silent road trips to your bed.
I long to feel something internal
Something like Christmas morn
Something I can't touch
It comes in forms of waves
I'm flushed.
I long for something more than your body

Autumn leaves
Kambria Keelie Mar 2016
Endless summer nights, sativa hazed eyes.
Whiskey on our breathe, cheap perfume on our necks.
We're miles away, a party was our sweet escape.
Slurred words and spilt beers, we drank to the glory years.
When nothing really matter but our happiness,
you cant replace a best friend. A friend til the end.
I'd do anything do have a glory night again.

Red
Kambria Keelie Mar 2016
Red
I'm not entirely sure what I'm feeling
But it feels euphoric.
It feels like the smell of coffee at 6am on a winter morning.
When the sun slowly begins to shine its rays.
A warm hand on a cold thigh.
Morning neck kisses and hazey vision,
Arms that wrap around a restless body,
Settling nerves and letting comfort drift me to sleep.
Comfortably numb.

Suicide
Kambria Keelie Feb 2016
If I died today would you miss me?
My last words I said, did you listen?
When I told you I've lost my shine, instead of hugs you made me cry.
Would you miss me if today I died?

— The End —
