when ever soft love
graces the ground of this mind sweet rest so happy
You are trying so hard to distinguish yourself.
But you are despairingly plain hoping that you have a sliver of uniqueness any other person holds for granted. You pride yourself to be different, to walk on a different path. Yet we are all the same.
Sky is a roof
we can never touch. Our feet stuck on the ground can't get rid off the dust. Neither can we breath without drowning into the air. Then we can say every morning we can scoop up a new sunrise! Then there is an expiration date set for each of us. Gained all that in store in the world? But which way is the way out? Can anyone find the exit time before it comes?
when her heart flutters faster
than the wings of a hummingbird, his steady heartbeat anchors her to the solid ground underneath their feet.
My heart is made of plastic Earth will quake Glass will shatter Ceramic vases and statues falling to the ground and breaking apart China plates will smash Pieces scattering zillions of different directions But me Body will remain strong and unscathed While others try gluing themselves back together in vain Holding head in place until the shaking is through so the screws holding it on don't rattle loose And I am not sure when this transformation occurred It used to break often After one too many beatings it evolved into this cold lump in my chest Safe and sound regardless of who tries to destroy it
Because it is safer this way
A longing ache has settled in
Took hold Body and soul Anguished heart is drenched in sin I've missed the chaos of losing control A rosebud sprouts darkness Into bloom inside My thoughts turn morbid I guess Towards death or suicide Raw emotions torture mind Trust a rare commodity Truth is challenging to find Light impossible to see Strength no longer fills bones So difficult to accept Something inside sinks like stones Pretend I don't feel the effect Hiding behind bursting false assurance Behind closed doors All the while wandering without insurance Own chains will lift off the floor I lost faith in what's above Realizing vulnerability shows The very thing I am afraid of My unspoken woes If only to soothe throbbing Live in a state of peace Fully expose the root of my sobbing Stripped entirely of suffocating release Dust creeps down throat Then recedes Plant regrets in the mud Sprung like dandelion weeds Invisible blades in my gut Friends twisting handles carelessly To and fro feelings spun then stopped Chase fragments of what we'll never be Off ground pick up the heart that dropped Wandering world in a state of defeat As I seek tomorrow Side to side on clumsy feet Under weight of all my sorrow
my feelings threaten to take hold of me
like frost to the ground i know they’ll leave me frozen solid
