beach at sunset
sands i've only seen
through pictures
you gave her my dream

it hurts
but there's no benefit to being bitter
part of me is happy
that you're happy with her

just can't get over the fact
you had to give her the exact thing
you could never
promise to me

esther zoe
you became a home when i couldnt find one.
you became a friend when i had none.
you became a parents when mine left.
you became a mentor when I had no one to guide me.

They said,
"The most beautiful art is
looking into someone's eyes
when they talk about the
things they love.
And I said,
"Or looking at someone you love.
Or maybe, just maybe,
by looking at the mirror
is the most beautiful art
anyone should appreciate."
Appreciation post for myself; for you and for everyone as well. You deserve more than the world has to offer.

Something to torture you
Bringing you to your knees
The pain is addicting

I sat on the bus, knees pulled into me
One hand clutching the seatbelt,
the other a controller to shuffle my songs
I lean against the cushion of the seat
with eyes closed; gently being rocked
and forth from the road
I don't understand until tears begin to slip out
that no matter where I go,
I'll never have a place to call home

Uneasy in her silence
Vulnerable and bare
His words cut so deep
She struggled not to care

Pensive for a moment  
She felt inadequate, yet free
Taking time to reflect  
On the woman, she’d come to be

The strength she'd sought so desperately
Showed up a little too late
Devoid of any resolve
Perhaps she'd met her fate

Life can be
Such a mess
So get out there
And do your best

You fell down
Well, get back up
I never meant
To be so rough

The world is fast
And it ain't fair
Love is hard
And it's cold out there

Life can be such a mess
It's up to you
To do your best...
