go on your way
My beloved child
turn aside from
the swerving path
untangle your gaze
to center on Me
stand in courage
hugging wisdom
guard all thoughts
leaning upon My love
release what's behind
and walk on in joy
Proverbs 4

Christian Ek Jun 2014
I find myself looking for you in other people.
Whether it is in the way they think or the way they appear, I see straight through them to you.
I find you in places I thought I could be alone.
Where once I could go to this view to clear my head, now only causes me distress.
I remember sitting on the beach once and your eyes washed upon the shore line.
I am waiting to go home into your arms.
I need you so much, that another person's touch, practically causes any feeling of attraction.
You held the power to make me smile when no one else could.
And I don't think I'll find satisfaction until someone else can capture my attention.

Wasted words
Wasted time
Wasted tears
Wasted feelings

I know that you don't give a single fuck about me anymore
About the things you said to me
About the fights we had
About what I feel for you

I want to cry
I want to shout
But you left
And I feel so empty
Yip Wayne Jul 28
I, too can smile

I remind myself every single day
As if nothing could ever bother me
Even if the weather was grey
Or when my heart was mushed like clay

I, too can smile

Even when you held his hand
Like you did with me 4 months then
Kissing him in a 3 week span
After you left me all canned

I, too can still smile

Seeing him on your social feeds
Like you didn't with me
Coz back then it was only me
Who wanted us to be proudly seen

I, too can smile

Despite me being on my own
And you having someone to call your own
I could walk this path alone
And prove to myself that I have grown
Janet Aitch Jul 13
You can't hurry
'home'
It has to evolve
within you
