i'm doing my best but my best isn't good enough
i guess i just never thought that life could be so rough
i think i might be on the brink of relapse
but i don't want to be; i left that life in my past
so what am i going to do if i don't get better?
the sad girl is trying to get out but i'm trying not to let her

old poem i found #2
Leia R Dec 2016
kiss me*
i wish to feel your breath upon every inch of my skin; my cheek, my neck, the lobe of my ear.
whisper things to me which you have told no other soul.
caress the skin of my naked back and hold me close to your heart.
love me like no one else ever could ; cherish me for the treasure i am

old poem i found #1
Leia R Dec 2016
my love for you is like the heavy beating of a falcon's wings
it is the sun that shines over the white-capped mountains
it's rays peeking through the valley just to lay upon your face
the rushing waters of even the greatest rivers call out your name as if it were a prayer upon their fluid lips

don't wake me up
Leia R Nov 2016
the sounds of waves echo off of
bleached beaches
the iridescent moon is my only guide
as i try to
blink the fog away

" i have never felt like this "

maybe if i close my eyes it
will all go away
maybe if i fall asleep
everything will be okay

until you had touched it ever so gently
with your long and calloused fingertips

then slowly--
as if the fires of passion burned within--
it began to melt
molding into the shape of your hand

tell me that you'll never cheat
and tangle me in designer sheets.
tell me that i am your vine
and sprinkle me in merlot wine.
tell me that you'll have the time and
shower me in refined diamonds.

the only concern is if you're rich.
