I feel so
Tired
Emotions r a w
Running marathons
In my head
Fixated
On all the things you
Said
Or didn’t let me s a y

You call me
Crazy
Take it easy
Just give me a break.

But I’m broken
From always coming
Second place.

Heavy
Kathrine Jul 24
When the day just feels too
heavy
And the light seems so far
away
I gaze upon you sleeping
And listen to your
Heart beat

Your warmth draws me
Closer
And you wrap me in you
Arms
Protected in this
moment

A relief from some of the
Weight

I never had someone
Kathrine Jul 18
I never had someone
hold me
As if they were scared to
Let me go
And play with the morning wave in my
Hair


I never had someone
Care enough
To notice my smile wasn’t
Pure
And talk with me til 2 am
Til my heart felt lifted

I never had someone
touch me
My heart, my soul
My mind
Like how you did, Way before our bodies
Intertwined


I never had someone
love me
The way that you do
I guess that’s why
I feel as though
Your love is to good
To be
True
Always end up rhyming. Tipsy Friday night jots. Saturday morning edits

I don’t know where it went
When did things change?
Like the leaves in the fall
Vibrant colours
Emerge
and then you
Blink
And the trees are now
Bare
With coldness in the
Air
And the Leaves lay on the ground
With no sign
Of the beauty
They once
Were

Rooted
Kathrine Jul 14
I’ll stand firm
Like the lonely tree
Giving in to the wind
My limps might shake
But grounded, I am
To the earth, deep down.
Simple like the soil
I regain my centre
and dance with the thunder
Kathrine Jul 13
I’ll see the sun shine
tomorrow
And feel the dampness in the
air
Hear the morning doves
calling
And brush the humidity through my
hair
I’ll breathe in the
beauty,
Of knowing I have a
new day
And maybe that will be
enough
To take some of the pain
Away.

I lost my spark
Kathrine Jul 13
Somewhere
Between pleasing you,
I surrendered
Me.

I think
Kathrine Jul 12
I think I’m happy
But shouldn’t you know?
What’s deep inside
Deep in your soul.
I thought I healed
I thought I was whole.
But you can’t fix broken
Guess now I know

Gaslighting
Kathrine Jul 12
At first I wanted to please you,
I gave in just to appease you.
But your requests were at my expense
And your complaints began to stretch.
It wasn’t just the things I did “wrong”
But who I am, and what I said
Then you changed what I had meant,
And put crazy worries in my head...
