another name
To add to my page of heartbreak
another name
To keep me numb
Another name
To romance, for a second chance
Though he is second to none.

another face
To associate with love
another face
To curse with praise
another face
to rehearse each small graze
On our downward facing days.

another heart
to submerge in anticipation
another heart
To learn each crack of pavement
another heart
To bleed dry, with a needle to the eye, when all my energy is spent.

another day
To pay for the holes in myself
To jump off of the highest shelf

another fate
To hate with an upward trend
Well I don’t need another friend.

I was left soaking in my sorrow
Hoping there will be a better tomorrow
Constant check ups to see how he's doing
But never once was I one he was pursuing
I prayed and cried hoping he'd regret hurting me
Coming back apologizing for deserting me
Until someone else came along and reminded me of my worth
I'm stronger and pray for him to stay far from my turf
I'm so glad Biboe came into my life. for the past couple of months I cried or sat in silence hurting for what another did to me. Biboe gave me the attention I longed for. I realized through him I am beautiful and strong. And he's the one that deserves my heart. Not someone who cheats and leaves me to questioning if I'm ever going to be good enough.

If its worth it, well...
You will feel tired... You will feel sick...
You'll feel like there's nothing left to give...
Then, you'll have to do it all again tomorrow...
With everything, give it all you got,
and then some...
If its worth it

She was like a diamond hidden in rock

Hard to break through the rock but once you did

She was worth a million bucks

I used to think that we were ******
By distance.
I still do, but now
I can't help but think about
How incredibly lucky I am
To have someone in my life
That is so worth missing,
So worth loving.
How fortunate I am
To have someone
To wait for.

You know I love you baby,
You know I truly do.
You know my love inside you,
You know you love and miss me too.
You know the hurt I caused you,
You know I feel it too.
You know that we can fix it,
You know that I was made for you.
When it’s easier to write something on a paper because the person who you wish to say this to no longer wishes to hear it. So I do the next best thing...

it's no small wonder, watching birds learn to fly.

there's a small nest on the ledge outside my dorm window, and the chirping of the mothers wakes me up on the earliest of days. i'd be lying if i said i was overjoyed at the occurence, especially on the days when i have early class.
but then came the babies.

like me, they were cold and afraid in a completely new environment.
like me, they were scared to death of every person walking by.
like me, they had no clue how to fly.
but like me, they learned.

i live somewhere else now, and still get woken up by the birds. i can't help but wonder sometimes if they're the babies that learned to fly on the ledge outside my room around the same time that i did, stroke by wobbly stroke through the turbulent air. it's amazing how much they've grown. i'm so proud of them.

likewise, i'm proud of myself. i made it through the first year of college-bad grades, no friends, drama, and adjusting to being by myself a lot was a really hard transition. once i left the nest, that was it. and it was terrifying. but i've learned to fly since those days, and despite a badly paying job, no friends in the area, and being down on myself, i'm still hovering above the ground. that's no small accomplishment.

it's no small wonder, watching birds learn how to fly.
college narrative, i guess. it's crazy how things have come full circle, and how i've begun to look back on high school and miss what good experiences i had there(even though a lot about college is fantastic). i had blocked it and the people involved out of my mind for so long that i had almost forgotten how hard of a career high school was. while i'm glad it's over, it's interesting looking back on it from a mature perspective. i made so many bad choices. i can only hope the way i'm living now remedies those choices as best as they can. living holding onto grudges and old hurt is the hardest thing i had to learn to let go of, but it can only make your entire life toxic. and i'm still growing.

So tired of this game we play
This chase of stop and go
Near every time I see you
You tend to be around your friends and
We have to play it cool
I know you want me darling
But around them we can never show
It's in the way you touch and kiss me
When we steal the time to get away
The way you lean against me
And whisper in my ear
That “This is wrong and we mustn't”
Cause it's hurting the one you left at home
I would love to say that I could be
Your one and only lover
But we both know that could never be
The ever changing circumstances of our lives
Could never let it happen
No matter how hard we want it darling
Even though the short time we spent together
I know I mustn't push it
But I just can't help it
As our time is spent in ecstasy of fear
Looking into your eyes
As you lean in to kiss me
It's worth the pain of sadness
As you push away to say goodbye
Perhaps it was wrong to start a three year relationship in this way... but you can’t choose who or how you love.

It wouldn’t work,
wouldn’t end well,
I knew that, But I
still wanted it to happen
For better or worse,
Because what is life
without love?

I wanted to feel like the one,
Even just just for a moment,
Thought it’d be worth it,
But look at me now-
Nah it was still worth it.

Fear wondering astray                
Mears pondering I lay
Near fields among the day                    
  Here yield those of gray          
Dear God stuck at play
