Savor these hard times,
Cherish every drop,
For one day they'll be
far past and behind.

Joy is warm and sweet,
Anger burns the tongue,
Sadness makes its case,
Dressed in smoky char.

Let the others eat
portions meant for kings;
I am far too well
With the bits I find.
Life is a buffet. Waste not a scrap.
My Dear Poet May 6
Nothing is as sweet as you
but you case the hardest pip
I try hard to love myself
The person that I am
Everyone tells me I am beautiful
Don't know why I never can
I want to love myself like i did when i was little

I need you to understand
Thinking
And breathing
And your heart beating
Its hard
When you head is so mixed up
That nothing makes
sense

I need you to understand
That when I say I know
I really do know
I just, know that i dont know
You know?

And I need you to understand
That when my heart is pulsing in my fists
When my brain is blocking my throat
And god knows where my mind is

I just need some stability
Something to be clear
When I know something
But I dont
And I cant think
And I cant breathe
And my heart cant beat

Why does it have to be so **** hard?

Being honest and open to you
Is more than painfully hard
When fears are stacked miles up
Cornering me from all around
Creating indestructible walls.
he had a hard time
reading the signs
eventually he would come to find
it was easier to lie
easier

Can we...
Can we start again, please?
Wipe my slate clean?

'Cause I dont want these scars on my arms anymore
I dont want these memories in my head anymore
I dont want to be living in care anymore
I dont want to be wracked with guilt anymore

I want to cry
Not keep fighting
I want to scream
Not keep quiet

I want to be sad
Instead of shutting away anything but    that glimmer of hope

I admit it's there
I just want to feel my feelings
All of them

Because I cant stand being strong
anymore
