Move on  
Just move on.
Come on you can do this
You didn’t really love him

It's not like you spent months planning
The rest of your life with him
Just move on.

It's simple
Find another boy and move on.

But just to humour yourself
What if he made a mistake?
What if he regrets it?

Maybe it's not that simple,
One person's life is complicated and
adding others just makes it worse
So how can it be simple?

What part of relationships or
A lack thereof
Is simple.

burned to the ground
Lauren Faith Feb 21
You swooped into my life like a knight in shining armour,
Promised me the life of a fairy tale,
All the riches and gold i could have as your queen.

How was I supposed to know you were the dragon,
that guarded me from the world and took me from the one i knew.

I couldn’t see past your pretty words coming from that mouth with a serpent's tongue.  
But now i can see you for all you were
Scales and all

When you flew away i could see the ruins and the towns you burned,
You told me they were the results of a war you fought,
But its clear they are the rubble of lives you came into and burned to the ground.
this is easily one of the most painful things i have written and i was afraid to write from the sheer pain i have been in the past few weeks.

If or when
Lauren Faith Feb 1
Every second away from you hurts more than the last,
When your name appears on my screen
There is a moment of excitement,
Then hours of pain

I don’t know when I will see you next,
My birthday?
Valentines Day?
Our 8 months together?

Not knowing is what’s killing me,
Before I could count down and it was keeping me going
But now I have nothing
No idea when I get to see you

If I get to see you.

You are my sunshine
warming my skin as you touch it

without you, my world grows cold and shady
the plants' aren't green,
and the birds won't sing to me in the morning.

the nights are starless,
clouded and cold.
with no sun the moon won't show.

My days will be rainy till you
come home.

but i always know you are there
right behind the clouds.

Trying to Speak
Lauren Faith Aug 2018
I’ve been trying to speak
But with you, I have no words
To express how I feel

For days I’ve been trying to say one

I question my self for wanting
To say this too soon

But with you, everything just feels
Like there is no too soon
It’s always just right

Not having words to explain the
Feelings inside of me
Is not something I ever
Thought I would experience

But with you, I am comfortable in my own silence
But first I just have one thing to say,
I love you

Life in the Balance
Lauren Faith Feb 2018
Water has both the power of life
And of death

It is a gentle wave washing up on shore
And the beginning of all life

We cannot live without it
It holds the chemical balance within me

And yet in one surging wave
It can destroy everything in its path

~you were my glass of water, and are my tsunami

Just like the winter solstice
You just make my days brighter
The sun shines more headily
Coffee tastes better

But just like the summer solstice
When u walk away
The nights for darker and colder
The dread of icy roads ahead.

But the in between
The spring and autumn solstice
Were full of fun and adventurous night
Where we didnt have a care in the world about the light and dark
Solstice love remorse missing spring fall summer winter

End of an Era
Lauren Faith Dec 2017
We walked side by side
For 12 years
But your story has ended
And a new chapter has started

For years I heard your stories
Rode along for your adventures
In far off lands
Beyond the magic curtain

And now It is my turn
To venture off into
The unknown that is
My future

The stories of evading
ungers and izzards
Turned in to
Unwritten essays

As I remember
Your Stories
Instead of creating
Mine own

Walk along with me
My friend
As we both head out
Into the unknown

We are at the end of an era
And with the end of one
Comes anew

The Grounds of Community
Lauren Faith Dec 2017
Traditions are not something to take lightly
Not something that can come and go
Call me old fashioned but like
Sapphires passed through generations
Memories and family
Traditions stand strong in a community built
Respect for those who came before
And a promise for the future
To continue on
Through the hard times we rejoice in knowing what is coming
And in the good we are thankful for what we have
Knowing that it wasn’t always this easy
And that others before us fought for this
We stand on the grounds of community and tradition
Born and raised
They are trying to change a whole group of 150 year old traditions and celebrations in my city. And this was my response to those people

The Benefit of Daddy Issues
Lauren Faith Dec 2017
The term daddy issues has such a negative connotation,
But what if the issue is he treated my mom and I so well
That I don’t know if I can find a man as good as him.

Now that I’m older I see all he did for us,
Worked long hours and missed important events,
so he could support us.
He was always there when we needed him
And taught us that we can do anything we wanted
Whether it was using power tools or being a princess.

What happens now that I found that man.
The man I was told all my life to look for,
And he stole my heart then ran away.
For once I think saying I have daddy issues,
Is beneficial

Running Free
Lauren Faith Dec 2017
I always wanted to run free as a wild horse
And never let anyone rein me in,
Then you grabbed me by the hand and ran beside me.
The adventures, stories and late nights
Never did I feel so alive as when I was.

You never tried to slow me down,
You let me run free and you ran with me,
But life out ran us baby, and pulled you with it.
For once in my life I actually wanted to be roped in

Never will I admit that someone tamed me
But honey you did the impossible.
You took my running drive and taintd the green fields.
The then vivid green grass is now a dull lifeless yellow.

I just want to run free in the heartland once again,
But now I see that having a partner to run with
Will always make things brighter.
Not tamed but together.
Running free.

— The End —
