Too many times,
Too many tears,
Too many people,
Too many memories.
When will it end?
When will we be able to leave our houses without the fear of our clothing being sexualized?
When will they realize this isn’t ok?

What does it take?
How many tears,
How much pain,
How many people,
How much fear?

This is for all of those who have gone through ****** abuse of any form.
Us girls need to stand together and speak up.
We need to support each other and never **** shame.
At the end of the day, each one of us knows someone who has experienced ****** abuse or ****.
Me too.

For Melanie

Together is no more
When supper is simply a food mix
When voice changes are an expectation
When the broken cannot be fixed
And the time spent away becomes a sensation

Together is no more
When vacations are a dread
When the car rides are silent
When the Little League stands are dead
And the heads grow heavier

Together is no more
When the bruises get darker
When fuel comes in glass
When walking home seems harder
And everyone longs for the past

Together is no more
When the therapy is snorted
When the tree gets chopped
When the nerves are shorted
And the cycle cannot be stopped

Together is no more
When a home becomes real estate
When the composure breaks
When the lover is now a mate
And Lucifer raises the stakes

Together is no more
When the candle burns out
When hatred is the only sight
When existence is a doubt
And anger silences light

Together is no more
When unity is tossed
When fear is the only notion
When family is lost
And love is a mere distortion.
This was inspired by the experiences of someone I care for very dearly.

This is for anyone who has family issues, abusive significant others, demons, or silent suffering. You are not alone. There is help out there. It will be okay one day. Never stop believing.

The winds of change blow through my hair a simple remainnissance
Like the memory of human touch on soft skin
Like the compiled guilt of sin
Surrounded by expectations and failed attempts

The chapter cannot be ended without lifting the quill
Such a fire like this cannot be started without the tense wood
The light cannot turn on without a thousand tries
And even a suicide cannot occur without a craving to die

This is not a white flag nor a
It is rekindling what was once lit
Putting my skills to the test
Because change cannot happen for those who do not persist

Climbing through the windows of one's soul
It should be thought their sunglasses were stuck deep inside the couch of their home
Because the story cannot be read unless the frames are right
And the past cannot be heard without a sense for tone.

The good die young, there is no simpler way
And the simplicity of innocence, ***** by man's lust
Once heavenly, now dismal at best
Webster's entry burned at trust

Ash remains from the evils of humanity
Fear dwells in the shadows
The forceful transition to reality
Leaves nothing but the deafening blindness of truth

But where the sea meets the horizon
Stands a beautiful phoenix of two
That torches the dark
And mends the heart of loneliness
v Jul 2016
The beauty of the world is not found in makeup
But merely the naked faces and true inner colors

The happiness of the world is not found in dependent love
But merely the personal security of the soul

The peace of the world is not found by the debasement of all evil
But merely the patience of those eager to settle contrasts

The uniqueness of the world is not found by being different
But merely respecting those who are

The reality of the world is not found through scorning the past
But merely admiring the lengths reaches since

The perfection of the world is not found through dreamed ideals
But merely the belief they can be reached

The world is not found 100 million miles from the sun
But merely on the faces of its amazing children

to lie comes easy.
