A Battling Duo

My soul is shared by two inhabitants The pair is consistently battling Over and over, they tumble and brawl Teeth bared, on a heartstring they’re balancing Pushing and pulling, tugging at each other Unable to sway the other to her side They clash, they crash together like thunder Incapable of sealing this great divide One…

Bring it on, World

I’m embracing this new beginning Welcoming it with open arms Why would I not spend my days grinning? Why should I cower in fear of being harmed? I’ll take the punches as they come Reeling back and keeping steady I refuse to let them make me come undone No matter what they bring, I’m sure…

Dancing Dreams

I’ve been dreaming Not a fantasy, or something idealistic But something tangible Something beautifully realistic In these dreams, You’re clutching me ever so tightly Gazing down into my eyes, Your gorgeous smile shining so brightly We’re walking on air Swaying back and forth across this cloud There’s no need for words As you twirl me…

Brick by brick You’re tearing my barricade apart You’re breaking my defenses down Melting the ice built up around my heart Stone crumbles around me The dust is tearing up my big blue eyes It’s so relieving, to not have to hide anymore To not have to wear this disguise You’ve found me Buried deep…

Hold my gaze as I walk this tightrope Don’t let your eyes falter Don’t let my steps waver I’m gripping this wire with all of my hope Arms outstretched to my sides, I tread softly Deep breaths, now, inhale and exhale Hold steady, darling, don’t let me fail But I’m ready to fall, now. One……

Waking Up to Perfection

You’re exquisite perfection to my slowly waking eyes Not a worry or care on your face at all Watching your chest rise and fall Unaware that you’re holding my heart like a vise I could stay in this moment for the rest of my days You’ve captivated my heart and soul Once again, you’ve made…

My love My darling The fire in my soul The author The illustrator Of stories untold Build me Break me Mold me how you please Bend me Twist me Bring me to my knees Your light Your darkness Give me everything My love My darling It’s your name I sing

You’ll Never See Her Brutal Battle

Walking through life as a double-edged sword She only lets them see one side at a time For if they saw both, she wouldn’t be so adored And a life without love, in her eyes, is a crime You can see her eyes shifting back and forth Keeping watch for possible heartaches She’s straying away…

Happiness is Always Out of Reach

Why won’t this weight on my chest lift? I can’t take a deep breath Not without my eyes filling up with tears I brought this on myself, that’s true I made this choice This decision This straightjacket feeling is my own doing My defenses are becoming my downfall They won’t let anyone in Their shields…
