Breathe In, Breathe Out

  Breathe in, Breathe out Be careful, girl, keep your wits about you I know you’re hurting, that’s obvious But you can’t let them see, don’t let them know Breathe in, Breathe out Steady now, keep that smile on your face They’re all expecting the best out of you Keep dancing their dance with all…

Frantic Dance

Sweat on my skin your taste on my lips gasping, grasping for each other your hands grazing my hips this is a dance we’ve done before we know it by heart fitting like puzzle pieces where you end, is where I start graze your teeth along my neck make me shiver in delight be careful,…

I Am Here

When the nights get too cold and you’re feeling all alone Under your blanket, you shiver, Isolation chilling you to the bone Remember that I am here I’ll always keep your demons at bay And taking you in my arms, Together, we can fly far, far away When the moon becomes hollow, When the shadows…

Falling Once More

Gasping, grasping at something to hold her up She’s fallen down the rabbit hole again She told herself that she was free to breathe, free to feel But once again, those familiar walls are closing in Why can’t she find her way out of the darkness? Why does she keep coming back to this place?…

You’re My Favorite Surprise

Never Again

  Never will I find a love that fits me more than yours One that excites me, gives me hope, and one I never have to doubt You’re the path that I’ll follow for the rest of my life, my dear, You’re the guiding lantern who’s flame I’ll never snuff out See, you’ve broken down…

Demons

I’m used to biting my tongue, I’m good at turning my gaze You can do whatever you want to, and be rest assured that I’ll stay I used to live out my days as a machine, going through the motions, showing none of my emotions, just barely getting through the day Things have changed, that’s…

Just Be Still

Just be still, my darling Don’t you know that he’s not going anywhere? He won’t leave you alone like the rest of them You can count on him to always be there Just be still, silly girl He means every word he says to you He’ll always be on your side, no matter what No…

Inky Ode

Let my life flow through your inky scrawl Bring life to my words Make light of my thoughts Open my soul for the world to see The darkest corners of my mind are open now The deepest parts of my heart are on display Will I be judged? Will I be scorned? What will they…

Saving Little Girl Blue

  You’re done counting your fingers The number was never right anyway Sadness never suited you, the color was all wrong Little Girl Blue, you knew that hue wouldn’t stay The raindrops were never your friend, my dear No matter how perfectly they fell on your sad lips They didn’t give you the warmth that…

You Are, You Know, You Have, You Will
