and by more i don't mean
"i love you more
than you love me"

i mean
"i love you more
and more each day.

i love you more
each time you text me goodmorning
and even more when you whisper goodnight.
i love you more
after every softly stolen kiss and more
after holding your hand across the parking lot.

i love you more
even when you're leaving me
and more when you beg me to come with you
i love you more
when i'm watching you perform the music you love
even more watching you warm up so nervously

her iris leaked its blue
out the socket
and onto the concrete

dandelions round them
but not one
could wish away
the girls tear
i am who i am
and that will never change
i am the same as i was a year ago
when the roses start to fade

i guess i'm not enough
to make tears run down your face
i still wonder if you care
if you even know my name

i don't understand
why we cannot co-exist
i never wanted to hurt you
with my poisonious lips

how deep are your scars
for us to make it this far
there's a hundred million friendships
and all i wanted was ours
haven't posted a poem in a while and these are just some thoughts i've had recently

I'm surfing, along the coastline.
The waves pulling me in, my strength pushing me out.
Music in one ear, shouting in the other.
I breathe, a breath of salty air. It settles in my lungs and I choke.
Sometimes the salt can clear the alveoli and make it easier to breathe,
But not today.

Today the air is heavy. Clouds pour down single droplets but when altogether, it is a storm. The wind howls, burning my ears. Whispering that it's all too much.

I crave a fall into the ocean, pulled out to sea. It's become too much and I'm drowning.
But I'm not drowning. I float. I float with tears mixing into the salty water. I can feel the undercurrent begging me to come down to it so it can pin me down to the sea bed where I can hold my last breath and breath again.
But it's not breathing it's drowning and the thought makes me thrash around and I panic.
So instead, I panic on top of the water, thrashing and jerking around desperately trying not to drown.

The skies will become clear again. The stormy skies will reveal the blue which is always there. The stars are still shining underneath the despairing clouds. They are always there, just hidden at times.

All I have to do is breathe with the waves and stay afloat till the storm goes away.
over the past few years, I have experienced so many things as a nursing student working in a rest home and now the hospital. There's days, weeks, months where I struggle. The emotional overload of having to see the worst positions people are in. Sometimes it's hard to find hope again in these times. Especially when surrounded by death and despair and dying. It's not going to get easier but that's why I become more resilient. But it's also important to take moments when things are too tough to just sit with the feelings. Otherwise I will drown.

Caught in the current
I am pulled into your smile
Laughing and crying
Sometimes someone comes along who makes you so happy you can't help but bawl your eyes out

I am in love with an idiot
Nobody Apr 15
Im in need of a tether
Something to keep me from going
From this world to the next.

So I attach myself to every
Attainable object or emotion
or person.

In hopes, maybe they'll help me.
Maybe hold me so i dont float away
into the knight.

So far everything I've attached myself too has let me drift on to another,
Making me feel more worthless than any other.

I just want someone to love me, to acknowledge that I'm here, but when will I find the one who will love me without fear.

Until thay day, I continue to drift into the knight waiting for my light.
I miss your voice the most.

I never wipe my face when I cry

I let each salt water stream burn my cheek

Burn every tied connection between you and me

I let my tears pour over the bruised heartstrings

As if they were saline solution to a cut

I let my tears cleanse me of you

I let them blurry your image and memories we shared

Until I can’t recognize your false promises

I let my tears warm me like a furnace  

When tonight’s loneliness is too cold to bare

With these tears I can stop empty dreaming

And give you back all of your unkept “forever’s”

So tomorrow’s happiness is rewarding

Like a fresh bloom after aprils showers


I will never wipe away my tears..

That sorrow of tired Eastern mothers
Too many have been taken by the collector of colours
How many more books for her travels has she found?
How many more Book Thieves has she encountered?
As shelters saturate with spine chilling sounds
And the dreams of so many are now haunted

Babies born in basements and bleak bunkers
Home-stripped strangers fleeing in large numbers
Oceans rise with the influx of our tears
Life's difficulty has been increased by a couple levels
People are glued to doom that's on their screens
Dangerous be the dreams of the ****** devil

Hopeless seems to be the days ahead
No calm seems to be scheduled for our beds
Just mindless zombies imbued with world's issues
Just mindless zombies buried in used tissues
Waiting for light to return from her cave

There must be madness swirling inside me
My stomach aches
A sickly urge in the back of my throat
I imagine it whirls around in my blood
Surging through my body like morphine
It spreads to my hands at first
A tremble of my fingers slipping glass from my hold
It glitters before my eyes
i feel it travel to my forearms creeping up into my biceps
Scars reopen and red spills
My fingers now coated in crimson
Then it's clogged my chest all to fast
It's getting harder to breathe but still my lungs fill with air
Heart squeezing, ribs popping out of place
Yet my body stays the same
From there it splits in two ways
One drips down into my stomach
then pooling in my feet and weighing me down
The other creeps up my neck
Taking the oxygen from my head
It starts to spill out my eyes
In tears of panic
And i remember the ways to stay sane
None of them work now
Nothing is working now
why must you call me crazy?
