10 days was all it took
To plan the way I'd go

One last kiss to those I love,
Made sure they didn't know

I laughed, I smiled, I cooked, I cleaned
While my soul was softly weeping

Cause even in those memories made
All joyful moments were fleeting.

And on the day where time was up
I finished at my workplace

I said goodbye, I kissed my sis
And smiled down at her face

I got in my car and turned it on
with knowledge I wouldn't return

And as a tear slid down my face
My stomach began to churn.
This was written in March 2019. And 10 days later, i had a failed suicide attempt. And boy am i glad i failed. Much love to you all.

Hold on dear girl hold on
For this too, shall pass
The morning soon will come
And night time will not last.

This darkness with no light
Is simply a shift in wind
And if you just hold on
You'll see the darkness end

This pit you feel you're in
So dark and so deep
Can be changed into a safe place
A place for you to weep

There isnt a NEED for strength
You don't HAVE TO fake the smile
Some days are just exhausting
Some walks just feel like miles.

Hold on, my dear hold on
Take refuge in the truth
In a book that holds the answers
In a verse that helps to soothe

With each day that you feel weary
In each time that you lose hope
Know that you are not alone
There is 'HE'to help you cope

You have so much left to offer
You have so much still to add
So don't give in to darkness
Dont let yourself stay sad

He has a greater plan
A plan to bring him glory
A plan that you're a part of
A chance to share your story

So hold on sweet girl hold on
Stay to see his plan
Know that you are loved
Know with 'HIM' you CAN!

I'm tired, oh Lord, so tired
This prayer is nothing new
This prayer is a broken record
And no surprise to you

My eyes are heavy Lord
They are weighted with my soul
My vision is still blurry
It's begun to take a toal

My breath is labored Lord
Exhaustion has a sting
Its hard to cling to hope
Of what tomorrow will bring

My arms are tired Lord
I have bruises from my fight
This enemy I cannot see
Has a grip on me so tight

My legs are weak Lord
They scream at me to stop
They warn me they are shaking
I feel my body drop

My mind is blurred Lord
So little now seems clear
Logic still evades me
And all I feel is fear

My lips are trembling Lord
They wont let out my pain
My screaming has no voice
My attempts are made in vain

My heart is breaking Lord
Each day I feel it crack
Im reminded of my failures
And all the strength I lack

My soul is weary Lord
So again I'll turn to You
And pray that in your arms
I'll feel my strength renew

Somewhere between
Our stolen glimpses,
Our avoided phone calls,
Our empty inboxes,
Our overflowing diaries,
Our false excuses,
Our truthful lies,
Our passionless conversations,
Our emotional poems,
Our unkept promises,
Our treasured secrets,
Somewhere between us,
We lost each other,
And found ourselves.
One day, you'll realise that all the pain made sense. It was here not to break you, but to make you.
Don't lose faith in love. Find yourself, and fall in love.

Draw it they said, let it all out.
So I gave that a go and I drew what I felt.

But they didn't see.

Sing it they said, make it a song.
So I sang them a tune to describe what was wrong.

But they didn't hear.

Say it they said, make it a play.
but when I tried that they just looked away.

They weren't watching.

Write it they said, share us your story.
So I wrote them a novel that didn't have glory.

But they didn't read it.

Why are you sad? Are you in pain?
They ask me again as I struggle in vain.

Am I really here?
All the suggestions on how to help....

Would he be kind?
Would he be sweet?
Would he make me feel special?
Cause that would be neat.

Would he take me out dancing?
Would he kiss me goodnight?
Would he laugh with my family?
That would be a real sight.

Is there really that someone?
Does each soul have a mate?
Could you find your true love,
In a world with such hate?

How would you know?
How could you be sure?
That the person you love,
loves you even more.

They say it is worth it,
all the pain you may feel.
but how can you tell?
If this feeling is real?

There's this fear that lingers,
it won't go away.
of pain and chains,
and tears every day.

Do I want to risk it?
Could I be that strong?
could I live with the agony,
if it went really wrong?

I know it is out there.
that I do see.
but sometimes I wonder
if it's  out there for me.

Love I have seen,
love I have felt
but love that is

I know nothing about.

Would he help guide me?
Shield me from my fears?
Help me climb my mountains?
Wipe away all my tears?

the hand is the most flexible piece of the human body
26 bones in each
with a plethora of calcium and cartilage
they can perform a variety of motions
millions of years of evolution have funneled down
to billions of years of probabilities and somehow
despite the statistical improbability
of two people on a planet
of 7 billion
our hands fit together
as no one else's could.
