All feels right
The pain secedes
The future’s bright
The guilt precedes

The sleepless nights have now passed
Onto soundless slumber
I want you here
For we understand.

I relate, and so can you
From me to you,
Please save me from the blue
And fill my heart with color

Vibrant beating of our souls
Seamless to one’s own
Forever in your arms
Is the place where I belong
I gave them everything.
My secrets.
My time.
My love.
My advice.
My trust.
I gave them my all.


They spilled it all.
Told all my secrets.
Left me to rot.

The whole school
Knows my secrets.
My dad, my family.

My door to my home
Has been pried open
My secrets revealed.
My life begins
Swirling downward

Where are my friends?
Where is my trust?
What must I do?

They send things online
They hurt me with words.
Who ever said “sticks and stones
May break your bones
But words may never hurt you”
Was wrong.
Way wrong.

Words hurt.
Words ****.
Words destroy.
I can’t believe you’re out
   Out of control
You’re let out from
   Those bars
That kept you so far
Stay back
     You fool.

I’m happy
You’re gone
Stay away. You made
Me.
You left
       Me.
I hate you. Be
    Gone.
   Go.
Back.

My walls are up,
My cell is empty.
Your bars are down.
You’re out.
You’re gone.
You’re out of control.
I can’t believe you’re out
   Out of control
You’re let out from
   Those bars
That kept you so far
Stay back
     You fool.

I’m happy
You’re gone
Stay away. You made
Me.
You left
       Me.
I hate you. Be
    Gone.
   Go.
Back.

My walls are up,
My cell is empty.
Your bars are down.
You’re out.
You’re gone.
You’re out of control.
Those steel bars
have kept you so far
You’re almost foreign
But you’re a scab
You stay there on
My heart
My soul
My skin
My everything.

You’re always with me.

I wish you were back
Behind those bars
Foreign
Once more
Kept tightly away
Hidden by those band aids
I’ve tried so hard to keep on
Where do I live?
Is that so easy to define?
As defining a place as to who I am?
Or what I live for?
The Indonesian believe this to be true
   People defined by where they are now
And where they are going

Where am I going?
Where do I live?

I live for the joy of reading
I live for the smiles of the ones I love
I live for peace
I live for perseverance
I live for success
I live for trying new things

But where am I going?
Am I just one of those airy figures
Hidden in the wind?
Going everywhere and anywhere?
Just to see?

Curiosity
I live in my mind
I live in my world
I live to be curious
The world’s technology sweeps through me
The plane gliding along within me
the wind
As we see the world together my partner rumbles hints of destruction.

                And I whisper poems of love.
What belongs in the space in which my heart beats?


For the only thing that I believe to belong;
which truly belongs in my heart is
the piece of you that is forever mine.


Your heart is mine, your soul forever yours.
Intertwined with mine.
The specks of color create a rainbow of interests,
contrasting colors mingling into a sweetness;
an array of feathers of the most colorful parrot.


Our futures mapped out in the stars of the heavens,
observed by the ancient civilizations.
Separated or connected,
this moment has been mapped,
our fates already melted into one,
to be split,
or to be torn
or forever connected.

You are forever mine,
and I am forever yours.
My heart belongs to you
as my soul wanders with you,
loved by you.
And only you.
