Save Me Save Me Save Me

The absence of you is everywhere I look Everywhere I turn Everywhere I go It’s like I have a shadow hovering beside me Always there, always haunting me I can’t let go of you I don’t want to let go of you I wish I could force myself to let you in There is nothing…

Don’t Lose This Memory

Stranger by my side, Do you really know me? You’ve seen all of me All of what I would show you, at least You know what I’ve been willing to share But do you really know me? Your fingertips know my skin They’ve memorized the dips, the curves They’ve traced intricate, dancing patterns The heat…

You’re Your Own Worst Enemy

Why do you do this to yourself? Why do you put yourself through this? You’re your own worst enemy, silly girl You keep yourself from finding true happiness Craving to be close to someone But ultimately pushing them away Is it fear that drives your actions? Fear of letting someone see the real you Fear…

Dress Me in Silks

Please Do, but Please Don’t

Don’t glance at me with that look, Not if this isn’t going to go anywhere My heart can’t take this back and forth I’ve no defenses against your gaze’s snare Don’t smile like I’m your favorite person You know that it’s just enough to break me Knowing all the potential we could have All of…

New Start, New Life

I am not perfect, not in the least bit But trust me, I’m becoming strong My words never come out right But their meaning is never wrong I say what I’m feeling at the time Let the consequences be damned My words may be brutally honest, but Don’t let them burn you with their brand…

Sing to me, Nightingale

The soft glow of fireflies Accompany the pattering rain Leaves sway in the warm wind As the crickets begin their refrain Lying on my back in the tall grass The moon bathes me in white A flower-crown adorns my head As I soak up this beautiful night Has there ever been a moment So perfect,…

Infidelity

This was written last fall, at my lowest point in my marriage. My husband had been having an affair for the last two years, with a girl he had met at work and brought home “to be my friend”. I let it go on for longer than I should have, swallowed more words than I…

Swaying with Loneliness

Dance with me, loneliness Take my hand, lead me across the floor Your coldness envelops me As we step in tandem I thought I’d lost you, loneliness You were missing for quite some time Now you’ve returned Marking every inch of me You’re a sneaky thief, loneliness Stealing away my smile, my inner light Please…

What Makes This Time Different?

Why do I fall so hard, so fast? Why don’t I protect my heart from this? Why am I such a glutton for punishment? Why did I put all that I am into that kiss? I shouldn’t have trusted my heart with you It’s only led me to sorrow every time I should’ve kept it…

Shooting Stars and Skeleton Keys

Where did you go, love? It’s been too long since I’ve heard your voice It’s been too much time since I’ve seen your face In your eyes, I’m yearning to rejoice Tell me, where did you run off to? Tell me, was it something that I said? Please say that you still love me Assure…
