I'm tired.
Tired of everything.
I just want to sleep,
And never wake up again.

No, I'm not lazy,
I'm not running away from life.
I'm just tired of the world and myself,
And too tired to change anything.

Your body is uncharted territory, I want to uncover the secrets you keep hidden under your skin.

Your mind is the ocean, endless. Many of your thoughts, wants, and wishes have been displaced among the passing storms, swept up in countless waves; just waiting to be washed up on shore, concealed as a letter in a bottle.

Your heart is unlike any other wonder in this world, a glowing orb of fire; masked behind  cages of ribs and tucked away from ever reaching the surface by a layer of ivory flesh... never wanting to be found.

I searched
the deepest depths
of the vastest oceans,
I searched way up high,
past the clouds,
in the bluest of blue skies,

I searched
deep in the hearts
of nature's greenest forests...
It turns out,
that I was carrying it within me
all along - only now, do I realise.

Such a lovely surprise to receive the daily
for my first poem upon returning to HP.
Two dailys in total in my time here...I'm blown away! Thank you all soooooo much!
Such an honor and a privilege

I'm so glad to be back home, here at HP!
I missed this site and everyone soooo much!
I'm sorry I left unexpectedly,
I really missed you guys!

You used to love me
But I never used to love
Who I used to be

I'm the cold hard ground
But she is the gentle rain
That makes flowers grow

The pain is long gone
But this feeling lingers on
Why do you haunt me?

Our stars light the sky
In the gathering dark of
A lonely city
Shout out to Molly for helping me on this one. If you haven't already, please check out her work, she is a wonderful poet! :)

I have always had
The compelling urge to leave
Where I feel welcome

some feelings can encase you in molasses
hardly able to move
unable to get a true understanding of what you feel
and why
you seem sunk in quicksand, below the surface
destined to forever be caught in some inexplicable cosmic trap
where the freedom of your heart is a forlorn dream.
But take comfort, there is a way out,
and it arrives at a time you least expect
its the deep healing that comes from knowing yourself
a light shining into the depths.
