Camille Dec 2021
The candle sits still
steadily in the darkness
The cold wind strikes
making the fire and light vanish from existence
Camille Oct 2020
And, in an instant, it all stopped
All the minds that have been blocked
Uncovering the veils of illusion was constant
And all suddenly became distant
Feeling stuck inside a box
Wanting to be free, as these chains unlocks
Camille Jul 2021
Beauty is grace
Beauty is patience
Beauty is timeless
But beauty has its own uniqueness
And Beauty is not defined by one standard
But beauty is in all of us, in our own way
Camille Apr 2020
You are wonderful
You are loved
You are beautiful
But why can't you see

Trapped in chains
In cages of thoughts
Wondering why am I different
Why can't I be free
Camille Oct 2021
Confused and conflicted, I ask myself
Why am I trying so hard to be the best
Old memories then starts to come out the shelf
Alas! Here comes the uninvited guest
Telling me I'm worthless, worse than the rest
Camille Jul 2021
As confusing as it can be
My mind wants to be set free
It maybe as deep as the dark blue sea
Hidden underneath are secrets we all want to see
Camille Jul 2021
We once met as strangers
And became friends through time
That quickly turned into lovers
But then ended up as strangers

Alas, the cycle continues...
Until I met you.
Camille Apr 2021
Imagining scenarios in a different perspective
Looking deep in your imagination
Scars starts to rise; it seems to be ineffective
And with an empty canvas, you start with your creation
And as you go on, the cycle repeats itself again and again
And as you conquer this mess, you shall reign
Camille Feb 2020
Your unsettlingly deep and hypnotic eyes
Caught my attention to my suprise
Deep and dark as the ocean sea
Sparkly and dreamy as it is filled with Glee
Camille Jan 2020
It was the first time I saw you
In somewhere I never knew
Your perfectly imperfect eyes
To which I tried to tell lies

You were killing me inside
With these feelings I tried to hide
I avoided you with all my might
But I can't stop thinking about you every night

These feelings won't go away
As they lead me astray
To a path that leads me to love myself
Being caring and loving to oneself

I learned from you that I should be me
As I found that being myself was so free
Rather than hiding in a mask never to be revealed
The true self that was always sealed

You taught me to be more vulnerable
And not to be so miserable
I learned to do the things I want to do
And that's how I knew these feelings grew

I started to move on from all of the pain
But it was you who I wanted to attain
I still loved you deeply from afar
But these made me have a scar
Camille Mar 2020
As we count from 1 to 10,
You were finding, seeking and looking for me until,
You found me in a crowd of people
The more I tried to avoid you, the more you liked the chase
Camille Mar 2020
I get lost in my head, filled with words of doubt and insecurities
Feeling alone in a place full of people I wish to see
Seeing the people I love going away one by one
"I'm ok"

Feeling scared to face my fears, to speak out my opinion to others
People laughing at my insecurities, laughing at every mistake I make
"I'ts fine"
Camille Oct 2020
And in an instant, everything became black
And still, here you are Zac
Not looking back, but straight into my eyes
Still hearing echoes of painful cries
Staring straight into my soul with a painful glare
And I turned back and you were still there
Camille Jul 2020
Appearing in the moonlight day by day
Lurking in the shadows
Appearing out of the blue
Striking me with fear
Sending shivers down my spine
Leaving me with hopelessness
Me and my fears in the night :(((
Camille Jun 2021
An unforseen connections of two souls arise
This was a blessing in disguise
Happiness fills her darkest days
An everlasting leisure comes so fast
In which I never knew would last
Two melodies colliding in harmony
A never ending sound that plays eternally
Camille Jul 2020
Yet life as it is, we should let it be
I found that being myself was so free
Rather than hiding in a mask never to be revealed
The true self that was always sealed
Was now released, only to be free
Just like a seedling, growing into a tree
Camille Jul 2020
Wishing someone I can hold on to
To someone I can count on
Love and lies all around
Images appearings in my head
Countless nights of losing sleep
Wishing you were here with me
Talking through the telephone
Hoping that someday, someone would finally save me
Camille Jul 2021
My body is like an everlasting mountain full of different mountains and figures
Seeing this wonderful sight, I don't realize it's beauty, no matter its size and figure.
Perhaps, i may need another view in order to appreciate its beauty, may be its own quirks and flaws
But, as I may be doing my best to keep this wonderland, I am grateful for it to be serving me and my wellbeing
Camille Mar 2020
Outside these metal bars is a forest of paradise
Where one seeks peace and calmness within
The soft waves and the calming ocean breeze
I breathe in deeply, It is a lovely sight to see

But in my miserable state, I am unable to be free
To experience these beautiful things that I see
I see people who enjoy from sunrise to sunset
Dancing and celebrating to the beat of the drums
Able to see, touch, and hear around them
Able to do anything they want since they have everything
Camille May 2021
Till our last tear drop falls to the floor
We shall meet again, my friend.
Farewell
Camille Mar 2021
Your piercing words full of deceit
Were once from a garden of blossoming flowers
Blinded by these false realities of hope and love
I didn't see it coming
The devil was in front of me all along
Camille Oct 2021
Looking at the window pane
Observing now the pouring rain
Fake wide smiles, swollen eyes
Perfect pictures torn to pieces
Red, red, roses set aflame
Camille Jul 2020
Cutting all of the strings attached
Repairing the holes that were once patched
Curing all of the scars left by mistake
And thus, left me with heartache
Fixing these imperfections that they all knew
It broke my heart into two
It left me blue, but it made me see through
Picking up these pieces one by one
All of these work shall be done
And I shall reap what I sow until all that was left was none
Slowly all of these chains were undone
Alas, I will see the shinning sun
Camille Jul 2020
If loving you is a secret that I shall take
Then I shall take this heartache
I'd rather love you in secret
Than lose our friendship
I am not opening my closet
Unless you tell me in private
How do I know if I am still in my head
With all of these tears I've shed
Stopping myself to not express
Leaving me with distress
She
Camille Dec 2021
She
Chest tightening, she fell.
Eyes watering, she felt shivers on her caramel skin.
A downturned smile, she still laughs.
An everlasting pain, she still stands.
Camille Nov 2020
Conflicting ideas turn into one
That was me
Identities of one was safely undone
As it shall be
The world was telling her to hold the gun
Wanting to set her free
With each word and action done
You can see
The fight that she had won
It was the key
Camille Mar 2020
In a sea of stars I see,
A bright light,
Shines blindingly than the others
Full of love and hope

But I am just a moon
A reflection of her happiness
Surrounded by stars but blinded by one
She's the only one I see and need
Camille May 2021
And maybe,
when the time comes,
we can be together again.
Camille Oct 2020
The calming breeze passes by
Luring me in, soaring so high
Drying my tears in every eye
Looking above to the night sky
Saying goodbye with a bitter lie
Catching my breath as I deny
Perceiving everything in my mind's eye
Wistful belonging as I sigh
Camille Mar 2020
I, a trapped spirit tried to break free
To break away from my own prison cell, my body
To break away from these shackles pulling me back to where I started, my own thoughts and insecurities
To tell the truth about a situation
To seek justice for myself
Is that wrong?
To speak for the people who need justice?
To voice out what most people cannot admit?
Camille Feb 2020
So many questions but one stands out
So many answers, a question of doubt
What are these feelings?
These deeply scarred wounds
These bottled feelings
scared to be expressed
Suffering alone in darkness
Loneliness unfolds

Saw a blinding light filled with joy
I'm rushing back to it
Reaching my hand out
Seeking for justice and hope
It shines brightly, blinding my sight
I thought I could catch up to it
But it is to far away
I did best to reach out and see
And finally, I came out of the darkness
Out of my misery
Camille Apr 2020
Why am I scared?
I'm awake at night
thinking if you cared
Am I right?
For leaving you hopeless
With the words left unsaid
Unseen messages
My thoughts fill into dread
No one to turn to
No one to lean on
I don't know what to do
But I, will see you anon
Scared that someday, you would leave me alone
Scared that one day, you wouldn't show
Camille Jul 2020
He, who has been filled with guilt
Rising above this empty void he built
Reaching out to the skies above
With all the people filled with love
When all of the words were left unsaid
It was the moment that they dread
Spewing words that turned into a thread
With all of the tears they shed
With all of the words left to read
Most of the flock fled :)))

— The End —
