For the first time
she was trying
she didn't want
what she was heading to
all this time
she wanted to
Live her life
and love it as well
I'm afraid
The darkness is closing in
Stealing my breath
Choaking me slowly

I'm afraid
Being pushed like a pin
Feeling like death
Not very holey

I'm afraid
I don't want to live alone
Empty, unfulfilled and lacking
That not the life I want to live

I'm afraid
The darkness, I own it
It wont let me forget when I'm packing
No matter where I want to live

I'm afraid
I'm afraid
I'm afraid
I'm afraid
Jay M May 2019
Listening to the beat
Tap tap tapping along
Here I stay
Sewing, entranced
Captured here
In this moment
Of temporary peace

For her
I make a blanket

Black, grey,
Bits of green and pink
Checkered and given a soft edge

Love it, she will
Then
Maybe I could teach her
Be the older sister I ought to be

Show her what is real
When she's lost her way again
I'll show her how to feel
When she can't feel anything
Guide her through the seas of shadows

Run away
Is all she wants to do
But
Save her, I shall

Show her what it's all worth fighting for
Teach her what is safe

The hurting you feel is the pride of your love,
If this is what you want
I’ll love in silence
When drunken pain burns the flame
I’ll find my tears, and keep it pure,
You be the love sicker 
Writing will be my best companion,
Like a wolf howling at the moon,
I’m condemned to poetry,
My love will culminate and live forever
In the light of separation!

you were
a drug that only worked when i didn’t need you
a run down
crimson chevrolet
driving so swiftly down
the beachside boulevard
nothing but endless ocean to the left
and a booming city at rest
to the right
i needed you
i wanted to come home
to lie next to you
dreaming of a life full of
daises
and strawberries on silver platters
in the summer
blue skies
forever

star light, star bright
the first star i seen that night

never worked
Can't see you now and that's all right.
I'll see you in time.

We love, you love
You go, I go,
You leave, I cry
You lie, I break.
We are the single shroud of same body,
Like a compass we are a single soul,
Cosmos, lilac grow on our grave,
We swing on the far stars
No one will visit.
I will live, you will live.
love poem
Cox 6d
Don’t be the flower that exists for the sun.
Live by it.
Be it.
Grow as it.
