'I love you'
mara Dec 2017
How dare the
words
I Love you
be used in
reference to
other than
you

How defiant
they are to
claim their
independence
and lose their
worth

Faded
mara Dec 2017
The sun is setting
it's getting cold out,
I want to wake up
can I go now?
My breath is fading
and my heart
forgets to
beat.

One
mara Dec 2017
One
Perhaps i am more
day than night
so say then i am more
dark than light
should you desire
I will bring you stars
should your heart incline
I will bring you fire

Could it then
be said
all Is one

Mercy
mara Dec 2017
Girl in the mirror
said,
Its cold inside
gloved hands
ripped tights
closed eyes
maybe it'll work
this time

What does mercy taste like?
Is it bittersweet
like medicine
is there enough
for someone
like me?
Please tell me what you think? What did this poem mean to you?

Lost
mara Dec 2017
How far should i
go to find you?
lost promises
retraced steps
i hold hope
captive,
reality too
distressing
to comprehend

Apologies
mara Dec 2017
Water me with

the ashes from my
burning
heart

'Good people'
mara Nov 2017
Is there a guideline
to being a good person?
Is there a rule book that
I can read?
Who defines it?
Is it God?
Or is it man?

Silence
mara Nov 2017
What do i regret?
I regret that
i cant form a sentence
the words construct
and break apart
almost like they know
theyre too ashamed to
be associated with eachother

I drag words from the back
of my mind and force them
into submission
i try to speak but silence
is a weight and
words are foreign.

You translate.
The silence...
not so repressive
becomes a blanket
i want to hide under

Shadow
mara Nov 2017
Will my flaws
be the face of me?
Does my past
haunt my future?
If i colour within the lines
will that save me?
When you look at me
What do you see?

Regret is my hunter.
You are the sun that
unveils me
exposing me under
your observation
the question leaves its mark
burning through my mind
do you see me or
do you see my shadow?
Please give your opinion, I'd love to hear feedback :)

How many colours

Drown

If i drown,
will the water take away
my sins as it has
taken away
my breath?

Release
mara Sep 2016
She cant help it,
to feel all this pain inside of her.
It needs to escape,
she cannot carry it.
She is being buried alive,
her mind is trying to **** her.
So yes, shes take her release
She cuts herself.

Dont believe her smile,
Let the scars show the battle she's been through.
She'll tell you the story for each,
she'll paint you a picture,
you can hear her words
and feel her pain.

Black Hole
mara Sep 2016
I try to ignore the struggle,
the bitter taste of emptiness
the weight of nothing
is crushing me slowly
My heart is dead, it beats for no one
Sep 2016 · 274
Please?
mara Sep 2016
Father please reach out to me
I long to be set free

I am the night and all alone
Two battles locked in one

Darkness threatens to consume me
A war is raging on relentlessly

Drowning in a void of emptiness
I need your light to bring me happiness

I have lost my way
Fooled by men and led astray

Father please reach out to me

Dream

For once,
my life is better
than a dream,
I no longer
need to depend on
sleep to save
me

Reflection
mara Aug 2016
I will gift you this final tear
as i steal my last breath away,
I have broken the promise of tomorrow
because there is no reason for me to stay.

Lost
mara Aug 2016
I dance to whispers in the wind,
While heaven sheds its tears.
Lost in a sea of endless flashes
Unchaining me from all my fears

Stars in the sky
mara Aug 2016
I told you my secrets,
you carried them away
into the darkness
before the sun announced
the day.

Hide and seek

I'll keep these thoughts hidden,
so i dont break your heart.
But know, in regards to mine,
it was yours from the start.

Battle Scars
mara Aug 2016
A scar
for a sin
countless lines
faded by time
made bold
by mistakes

Flight
mara Aug 2016
She touched the clouds
and wanted to fly
to taste real freedom
at the tip of the sky

Grasping for air
in the city of blue
this bird had no wings
if only she knew

The wind tried to catch her
she realized her mistake
a broken surrender
her own life did she take

— The End —
