coming out is scary
you don't know
what they'll say
what they'll think

it's terrifying
watching them whisper
watching them stare

i want to scream
i'm still me
i'm not different
i'm not a stranger

don't stare at me

if you date the girl
with the pretty green eyes
and the brown braided hair
and the intoxicating smile
keep her close
she'll give you the world

and to my girl
with your pretty green eyes
and your brown braided hair

im not going anywhere
you're my world

i paint people's nails because my sisters hands were never quite as steady as mine
i compliment people's eyes because a boy once told me that no over has ever noticed his
i eat sugar cubes with raspberry tea because my long distance friend and i drank it everyday together for a week
i dye my hair different colors because i love hearing people describe the color in their view
i love spiral cut apples because my grandma would make them for me and my siblings as kids
i always wear the same perfume because my mom's favorite perfume is my comfort smell and she's used it since i was little
i've ordered the same drink from starbucks since i was 15 because my mom bought it once and i got to try it
i donate my hair to wigs for kids because i met a girl with cancer who gets her wigs from them
i still listen to music that reminds me of car rides with my dad
i've always loved the color blue because it reminds me of summer skies and laying in the sun
my favorite animal is butterflies because me and my sister used to name the little blue butterflies at my grandmas farm
i try to live my life freely because a girl once told me she loved how free my spirit is
i rub my thumb against peoples arms or hands when they're upset because it's something that comforts me
i remember the little things about people because i love the way their eyes light up when i remember something that no one else does
everyone is a mosaic of the people around them
this is mine

or the music blasting from my radio

fleeting moment
i felt weightless

writers block

having you in my life is
the break to my writers block
because so quickly
your love became my favorite thing to write about
i know you read these, i love you goon <3

i write to release
my words may not rhyme
they may have no rhythm
but they make sense of the mess

they bleed on the page
a spilt coffee stain
misshapen and crude
but if you look long enough

an image is formed
whether it be of pain, sorrow, love
or even just a flower
blooming from the cracked ground

they take me places i could never say out loud
a safe haven of my own creation
a place to release
a place where i'm free
coping in the best way that i know

fell out of love
trin Apr 2021
i remember when i ended things with you
i remember the pain i went through
but you seemed fine
as i sobbed and explained why to you
sometimes i can't help but wonder
if you fell out of love with me
long before i did with you
i don't miss my relationship with you, but i miss the friendship you gave me, you've changed.

i haven't felt this way for so long
i haven't felt the urge
to drag the blade across my skin
tearing open everything that's healed
refreshing the faded
i'm so scared of this
i'm so scared of me
i've never been clean this long before

to the scared 15 year old
who felt lost
and terrified
thinking 18 would never come
thinking depression would take her first
you make it kid
and it's beautiful
you have to suffer to find your happy
but you find it
just be patient
with both yourself and the world
you are loved and cared about
i know it doesn't always seem that way
but you'll find the ones who never.
make you doubt it.
happy birthday to her, and to me

who do you pray to
when you don't believe in a god

who do you cry to
when the only person you have is hurting too

who do you scream to
when you feel utterly voiceless

who do you go to
when you've learned to be alone

what does happy feel like?
for so long
happy was just a feeling
but it's so much more

feeling the sunshine on your skin
your loved ones laughter
waking up next to her in the morning
the applause you know is meant for you
small town bakeries
music that makes you feel alive
seeing someone smile
car rides with the windows down
screaming songs with your friends
falling in love

happy is more than a feeling
its living
being reckless
and free
happy is so beautiful

its just a number
a three digit number

so why does the voice in my head
tell me to make it smaller
make it lower

my dress fits me just fine
prom is a month away
but it would fit a little bit better if i was


calories are becoming a threat
the scale scaring me
the number growing

a fear i cant escape

broken words

all because you blamed me

i tell myself
that i’m annoying
i’m too much
i’m hard to love

i don’t understand why i can’t see what they see
