The space in every word of a sentence
The silence between notes of a song
The rest after a hard day's work
Gap and stop makes sense

There is no such thing as nothing.
Even nothing must have something.

Sometimes, a stop is needed
A necessary halt for refueling the engine
A little brake to a steep corner
The travel becomes faster
This poem suddenly came out while on a trip.
Emily Dec 2019
in a corner
under the bed
asking questions about the dead
how to brake something fix
and how to fix something broke.
in a corner
in a room
with nothing else left to do
wondering thought wounder away
when will the day be that you'll go away
when will that corner expand
to a new land far away
until then
brake whats fixed
and fix whats broke
until that corner turns to another ghost
or what use to be.

How could i fight for something that isn't mine?
Why am I protecting something that I can't have.
I want to win her heart.
I want to hold her tight.

I'm fighting myself to hold back.
But darling its so hard because its you.
You're a 160%...
Where can i find that?

You're worth the fight.
You're worth the punches.
You're worth the damage.
You're worth the struggle.

If you are not mine, and I am giving you this much.
Fighting this much,
Imagine if you were mine, how much more would i fight?
How much more would I give?

I am oblivious to my own limits.
I am oblivious to how this will end.
But whatever the choice, ill stand beside you.
Ill smile from a distance or hold you tight and kiss you.

You're worth the fight.
Wherever this road may lead us.
Everything ends in a heartbreak;
Some heart breaks are more worth it then others!

Just like this.

Every time I fall
I seem to brake.
She Writes Dec 2018
And through the pain
I’ll find my voice
Turning this quiet violence
Into loud words

I am not my past
I am not my disorder
I am not my obsessions
I am not a victim

I am strong
I am smart
I am brave
I am free
Sometimes I need a little reminder.
A brake
To take a break
To not to break

A brake - just in time is a good break , time to rejuvenate :)  just words :)

You poked my heart
just enough
to realize
that this is MY heart to break!

and I choose
to
cover it up
with

HARDENED STEEL!
REINFORCED CONCRETE!
DIAMOND PLATE ARMOR!

all wrapped up in a KEVLAR VEST!

with a itty bitty,
teeny tiny,
microscopic,
bullet-proof window

just big enough
for a single
beam of light
to enter

and reflect back
to your eyes
for you to see
the beauty within

i can't write when i should
my words don't like rules
they have their own sleep schedule
but ohhh when they want
to came and play i can't stop them
they are pouring out of me
like a juice out of those juice boxes
when you blow air in the straw
...

is there something wrong?
i have so many words
but i can't find the right ones
which would save us
why are you depending on me?

10 beats
10 kisses
10 late night texts
10 phone calls
10 secret words just for me
10 love songs that are in time to the last 10 beats of my broken heart
Laid out as a bittersweet harmony
To accompany the melody
Put in a frame ,your work of art
" 10 beats to a broken heart."
