watch me bloom; into a beautiful scarlet rose
my pedals vibrant and glowing
ready for a new dawn; this new beginning is just the start of a colorful year!
the droplets that once filled my eyes and falling from my gleaming stem.
slowly letting depression out the window and allowing the sun to kiss my lips.

we are but the sand and the ocean.
you are the sand
warm, fine, comforting, golden
people always seem
to walk all over you,
but not me
for I am the ocean
deep, brave, pure, peaceful
and I try so hard to get to you
but every time I push myself
I always end up trickling back to where I belong
it's not fair
I want to belong to you

Our memories fade
Just like the footprints
Whenever waves reach the sand
Meridith Jan 2019
He played tricks with my mind
But I was completely blind
He toyed with my feelings
And yet I still took his beatings
All alone, I sat and cry
Praying that I could just die
He made me believe I was wrong,
When he was the blame all along

With alcohol on my lips
he didn’t hesitate to grab my hips
he forced himself on me, along with his touch
I pleaded for him to stop, but he wouldn’t budge
My lips he kissed, his hand moved low
I begged him to stop, please no more
With a hand over my mouth
I knew there was no way out
My body went into flight
I could not put up a fight
Shut up and take it he said
And deep inside, I wanted to be dead
He forced himself in
And I gave up and let him win
My mind filled with confusion, and his mind filled with lust
He took another part of me with each ******
The pain, unbearable
How could a human being be so terrible?

After he was done, I could not cry
For that was the day, I finally died inside

— The End —
