My safe place
TyeniWrites Jun 10
God gave me poetry as an outlet
For when I’m in a bad place
When life gets my head spinning
When depression is pushing me from all sides
Anxieties of all kinds
I put all these emotions on paper
Out in the open and strip my soul naked
This is where I run to

Set Free
TyeniWrites Feb 27
I’ve been quiet for too long  
Had a voice but I couldn’t speak
I stumbled when ever I tried to speak
But then poetry came along
To quiet the crowd
So I could be heard
I now have a voice
Hear me scream on this pages

The journey to self love
TyeniWrites Feb 23
I’m learning to love myself
Making room to be the reason behind my smile
Learning to Accept I’m more than my scars
I’m worthy
I’m beautiful
I’m enough
I bid farewell the insecurities
It will take time.
But love is patient

Best Dream
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
If you were just a dream and not real
You would have been the best dream I've ever had
And I would have never wanted to wake up

Stop Knocking
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
She doesn't keep to herself
She has trusted alot of people in the past
And so many of them switched up
So stop knocking
Her walls are up
All her doors are locked
She's not letting anyone in

His love was pain
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
She cried out loud as he pulled her heart out
Leaving a gaping hole in her chest
Not caring about the pain she felt
Breathless, she fell on her knees
Sobbing, she watched him walk away with her heart
And with that she whispered lifelessly under her breath knowing he will still hear her, "You called it love,I called it pain."

We are all art
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
We were all just blank canvases
And God is the painter
He painted us
Each one a different shade of beautiful
The world is like an art gallery
Because we are all art

Loud Mind
TyeniWrites Jun 2020

Because sometimes, she just wants to listen to something other than the voices in her head

They eyes never lie

You are my favourite poem
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
Every time I thought of you
My hands shake with the aching need to write about you
Before my feelings for you were all that occupied my mind
You are the poem I always want to write

Darkness

Earphones blasting
Calm and quiet
Feels like a warm home

Don't let them tell you ,you are not

Through Cracks
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
I am the flower growing through the cracks
The light from outside filtering through a crack in a glass window
A reminder of how I always make it through life cracks
Always hopeful
Finding my way to survive

Dead Inside
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
The pain kept getting unbearable
As the blade slit her wrist deep
But she didn't stop cutting
With tear filled eyes
she screamed "I just want to feel if I'm still alive."

Different
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
She was always trying to fit in
Little did she know she was meant to stand out
Unapologetically different
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
Look at you now
Beautifully covered in art
You don't need to cover up anymore
Your scars are beautiful

Broken Things
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
I see life through a broken lens
I see beauty in a crack in the glass of a window
Broken crayons still colour
And a broken heart can still love again

Outcast
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
Different is what they call me
Addicted to isolation
I don't like crowds
I can't fit in with normality
And I'm not trying to be
I'm just being myself

Eyes of the clearest ocean

Broken Smile

She smiles in public
But cries behind closed doors
Scary what a smile can hide

What if

As much as they are on yours
What if they miss you too

Fear Me
TyeniWrites Jun 2020
In me is a world of words
Ink runs through my veins
I am not only art
I make art
I write to feel
I bring magic to life through words
I have the power to create a whole new world with just words
Fear Me
I am soldier armed with a pen and paper
I hold the highest power
I am a writer

Memories
TyeniWrites May 2020
When they come back
They are like salt
That has been poured on my wounds
They open up the wounds and I hurt all over again

Just like the sun
TyeniWrites May 2020
Every morning, the sun reminds me
Just like it
I can always rise again
I may fall but I will not stay down
My days may be dull
But everyday I will rise
Until one day I will shine bright
Just like the sun

When
TyeniWrites May 2020
When will I ever be home in your heart ?
When will I ever be safe in your arms?
When will I ever get to tell you the three letter word ?
When will I ever call you mine?

I am anxiety
TyeniWrites May 2020
I am the fear, worry and panic you feel everyday
The urge to stay by yourself
The fear of being wrong
The nervousness around people
The voices in your head
"they are laughing at you"
"you will embarrass yourself"
The fear to speak,stand up,talk or walk like a normal person
I've made your life miserable
And you can not control me
I am anxiety

A C N E
TyeniWrites May 2020
A glance at her face is all it takes
Can ruin her entire day
Everyday she feels ugly
Slowly killing her inside
Dear God a clear skin,she begged
She just wants to feel pretty

True Love
TyeniWrites May 2020
Maybe we don't really know what it is
People say it doesn't exist
Others say it's beautiful
Maybe no one really understand what it is
But I would love to experience it
Even just for once
May 2020 · 205
Past
TyeniWrites May 2020
Accept it
For the future is calling you
The past is over and done
And life must go on
Live for today

Waiting
TyeniWrites May 2020
And now
Waiting for him to notice me was like
Waiting for a ship at the airport
Waiting for rain in a drought
And waiting for snow to fall in summer

Under the same sky
TyeniWrites May 2020
I found it so hard to stop thinking about you
Maybe it was your good looks
Maybe it was those eyes that looked at me and made me feel so much warmth
Or that beautiful mind of yours as beautiful as your heart
A ******* masterpiece
A work of art
And just like a star you are so high I can only dream
And even if I will never be able to call you mine
At least we are under the same sky

Trapped
TyeniWrites May 2020
I'm in the depths of my mind
Can't get out of my head
Every day I m drowning in my thoughts
It's like my thoughts are ready to get rid of me
I've become a slave of my demons
And I can't even help my self
No one can
Tried escaping but my demons have cornered me
I'm trapped
Save Me!
May 2020 · 105
Died for love
TyeniWrites May 2020
Their love was ocean deep
But they drowned in it because they couldn't swim
Maybe forever was there at the shore waiting for them
They will never know

Time
TyeniWrites May 2020
Lived each day thinking I had more of it
Wasted it when I had it
Now I‘m running out of it
“Time”, they warned me about her
But I didn't listen
Thought I had more of her
But she waits for no one
The clock keeps ticking
May 2020 · 173
Lost Again
TyeniWrites May 2020
Lately I've been lost and trapped in my head
I feel so alone with no one to talk to
My anxiety is high and I'm mess
Tell me what do I do when I feel lost?
One minute I'm ok and the next I'm not
I hate this inconsistency in my mind
Thought I finally found my self
But I feel lost again

Through the face of a mask
TyeniWrites May 2020
When people look at you
They see a happy me
And not the sad you
They see me laughing
And see my beautiful smile
But no one sees you crying
Or sees you hurt

Please take me off
Because I care about you
You have spent your whole life behind me
And I hate that I keep lying to this good people
The more you keep hiding behind me
The more you keep dying inside
Let the people see the real you behind me
And set yourself free

Daily Reminder
TyeniWrites May 2020
You are amazing
Whether you realise it or not
Appreciate life more
And don't pressure yourself
Relax
Trust the timing
Remain humble
Embrace rejection
Do not give up
Love them out loud today
No,we are not promised tommorrow
Live!

— The End —
