It's like the entire world feels right
whenever I see you.

All of a sudden
my heart feels lighter
and I feel like myself again.

I've been looking for all along.

Not For Me
McKenna Pickett Nov 2018
You told me I taught you
what it means to love.

What I didn't know is that
the love I taught you
would be given to
someone else.

my mother and I have never fought.

Where Are You Now?

so why do I sit here alone at 3am
wondering where it went wrong.

Summer Love
McKenna Pickett Jun 2023
There is never going to be enough time
We humans are good at asking for more.

One more summer
One more dance
One more goodbye.

But the truth is
There is never going to be enough time.

So I will use all that I have
To make sure it feels like
We have all the time in the world
Despite all odds.

Here's To Us
McKenna Pickett Jun 2023
"Do you think in some other universe we never met?"

"No."

"No?"

"I think I've always known you."

"In every universe?"

"I have never been so sure of something before."

Because You Make Life Easy
McKenna Pickett Oct 2021
You're the kind of person I
want to lay on the grass with.
See shapes in the clouds and
feel the gentle breeze with.

You're the kind of person I want
to go on late night drives with.
Have the windows down and
listen to blaring music with.

Doing whatever, whenever.
Always and forever.

One Day
McKenna Pickett Apr 2021
I'll finally reach your retreating back,
and maybe we can walk together again.

I'm Human
McKenna Pickett Apr 2019
I used to feel dead.
like everything I did
was mechanic and
routinely.  

With no feeling in my body or my mind or my soul.

When I first met you
was the first time
I was made aware
that my heart was beating.

That it was possible for me to feel alive.
269 · Aug 2019
I'm Okay

I'm Freezing
McKenna Pickett Feb 2019
I know it's winter,
but it feels so cold.
It's a different kind of cold.
The kind that grips
your heart
and never lets go.

The kind that swallows
you as you lay awake at 3am.
The kind that slowly
washes over you
and breaks your soul.

And I wonder if it's
because I've been left
without the warmth
of your heart.

It's All In My Head Pt. 2
McKenna Pickett Jan 2019
It's like there's a wall
between all who try to help me
and my broken self.
And each time they get closer
my wall gets thicker.

Will I ever be okay?

Please Don't Go

McKenna Pickett Jun 2023
You say you'd never be able to do it
But I believe with every star in the sky
You are more than you know.

Little Me Would Be Happy
McKenna Pickett Feb 2022
I miss my old childhood room. With its dim lights and creaky bed. Turning off the lights and opening my old macbook. The fan inside it blowing hard and much too loud for two in the morning. I miss loading up a blocky game that lagged a little too much. Calling my friends on my phone and speaking in hushed shouts. Sneaking downstairs to grab a few cookies, making sure not to step on the fourth step (that's the one that creaked) and making sure not to crinkle the cookie package too much. Returning back to my room, placing both hands on the keys and forgetting about tomorrow. Playing that game with my friends until I finally noticed the sun peaking through my blinds and the warmth returning to the room. Hanging up the phone before my parents awoke and finally climbing under the covers. I miss my old childhood room and all the memories encased in its walls.

When Did It Happen?
McKenna Pickett Jun 2019
You told me you fell in love
hard and fast.
It's funny how you fell out of love
like that too.

I'm Glad
McKenna Pickett Dec 2018
I can finally chase after my own dreams
without you plaguing me with doubt.

Can I Escape Too?
McKenna Pickett Apr 2019
People just don't understand that
when you read our stories,
you're reading a part of us that was
brave enough to escape our hearts.
McKenna Pickett Dec 2018
My favorite days
are the ones where
the sky is gray and
the clouds are dark and low.
Where the wind blows cold
and allows us to feel.
Where the rain pours upon us
and washes away our past.
My favorite days
are the messiest.
The ones that match my heart.

You're More Than You Know

We Existed
McKenna Pickett Apr 2023
You can find us
etched into walls
and growing
from cracks in sidewalks

In the way we say
"good morning"
and the way we say
"goodbye"

We were always here
and here we stay
177 · Jan 2019
Is it?
McKenna Pickett Jan 2019
I find it scary
how quick people
can go from
loving
someone to
hating
them.
Was it really love
if you can give up
that easily?

The Old Me Is Still Me
McKenna Pickett Dec 2019

happy, silly, and perfect
right where I left myself
and I hope that girl can forgive me
for not loving who I was.

I'm Getting Better
McKenna Pickett Mar 2019
I think I'm finally starting to
love myself a bit more,
laugh a bit more,
smile a bit more,
enjoy life a bit more,
and
am thankful to be alive
a bit more.
McKenna Pickett Apr 2021
I hope one day I get to see you happy again.
McKenna Pickett Feb 2022
I long for a time I can never reach again.
A  time that is slowing slipping through my fingers.
A time that is fading from my memories.
Taking its warmth and serenity with it.
And it is only now that I realize I should have appreciated it more.

It's All In My Head
McKenna Pickett Nov 2018
There are so many people in my life who care about me.
People who would take bullets for me.
Fight for me.
People who will always be there.

So why do I feel so alone?
164 · Nov 2018
I Fight Back
McKenna Pickett Nov 2018
Everyday I
break a little more,
and
fall a little harder.

But it all just teaches me how to
stand a little taller,
and
rise a little stronger.

They Live On
McKenna Pickett May 2019
No one is truly gone
if you still carry them
with you in your
heart.

I'm Sorry
McKenna Pickett Jun 2019
If I'm the one who taught you how to love,
does that mean
I'm the one who taught you how to fall out of it, too?
