Words

  Paint your wondrous words Across my canvas of skin Use your tongue as your tool To carve letters deep within Your mind is that of an artist Its beauty has no equal With it, you calm my storms Their violence becomes so peaceful Speak to me and slay my heart Using your saber-like tongue…

Do you see all of my flaws? Can you accept me as who I am After seeing the girl that I was? Can you hold me and protect me When my demons show their faces? Will you keep me anchored to the ground When I’m craving far-off places?…

A Charring Dance

I want a love that consumes me From the inside, it bursts out Burning, twisting, and turning I want to feel the flames lick my skin Feel them dance across my being Like ballerinas set ablaze Keep burning me, sweet thing I’m on fire either way This love, it is wonderfully warm Keeping me on…

Forever is Overrated

  You promised me forever You said you’d give me the world I never knew forever was so short Did you lie about that, too? You took your vows that day Knowing that you’d break them You’d already broken them Just hours before How could you look me in the eyes In front of our…

Come a Little Closer, Darling

  Come a little closer, darling I want to count your eyelashes Come a little closer, dearest Burn me with your eyes Turn me into ashes Hold me tighter, sweetheart Keep me safe while I’m falling Hold me tighter, baby Weights are lifting To my heart, you are calling Kiss me deeper, my love Taste…

Writing Therapy

  Putting my pen to paper Painting ink on a blank space Spilling my entire soul With words from a secret place They need to be said They need to be heard Read them, my love, Until with tears, your vision blurs I pour out my heart The contents are scattered Letters forming words All…

Love Like Crazy

  Stay strong, pretty girl You’re worth so much more Don’t worry about his words You’ll come out stronger than before Don’t let him beat you Don’t let him push you down Stand tall, stand straight Don’t lose the confidence you’ve found You’re bigger than he is You’re better than he ever was Discover yourself,…

Light up, Light up

  Light up honey Light up your smile Your eyes, your cheeks Light up every feature you have That is pure beauty to me Make your goodness shine outwards Overcasting everything else Until all I see is you You’re burning into my vision Etching yourself into my memory My being, and everything I am You’re…

Girls Like Me

  Girls like me are always around Always hanging on, always there We never fight, no, not really But we’re always on, always aware Girls like me always put you first Taking the beatings and the blows Every hit knocks us further down But no one ever seems to know Girls like me are always…

Doubts slowly destroy…

  Why can’t I get this right? Why can’t I find the right person? Why is it so hard for me to be loved the way I love? I’m tired of getting my heart broken I don’t think I can keep trying to piece it together There must be something wrong with me Maybe I’m…

Masks

  Put on a mask To hide the hurt To hide the shame To hide the rage Put on a mask So you can think everything’s okay So no one else notices That you’re crumbling inside Put on a mask The embers still burn Singeing from the inside out No amount of tears can extinguish…

Crash, Burn, and Devour

  Lost in your eyes is where I find myself, Swimming in their auburn depths. In their warmth, I want to drown myself, For I know it would be the sweetest death. Your touch is like a burning fire, Leaving a smoldering path in its wake. Every inch farther makes my heart sing higher, Keep…
