A Beautifully Simple Masterpiece

You’re my missing puzzle piece the one I’ve been searching for all this time To my every tear, you have a smile and to every lyric I write, you hold a rhyme How is it that we fit so well together? How is it that our minds mesh so perfectly? Before I met you, I…

Battle Scars

She has dents in her armor and scratches on her skin Battle scars, she says, from the pain she always hid within There are bruises on her heart that she tries so hard to hide But she kept pushing, she kept trying She never gave up the brutal fight She’s pulled herself up from the…

I’ve Found My Companion for Watching the Stars

I’ve found my companion for watching the stars The person with whom I’ll share my world After prying open dirty shell after dirty shell I’ve finally found my gleaming, glowing pearl I’ve found my companion for watching the stars The hand that was created to fit mine I no longer need to protect my heart…

Happiness, Strength, and Poise

I never thought I could be, but I am I’m happy, happier than I’ve ever been There’s a glint in my smile now, And a shimmer residing in my skin I wear this newfound confidence well It shines through everything I do or say I know it’ll now withstand every storm And, under sadness’ gales,…

Waiting for You — katieearnshaw’s Blog

This poem could easily be the story of my life… and the story of my current romance. I found the love of my life, but I had to wait for him, as he did for me. Taking things slowly doesn’t always have to be a bad thing, sometimes, the best things are born out of…

Dim Lights and Facades

We don’t need the dim lights anymore The secretive and seductive Saturday nights They were fun for a while, that’s true, You in your button down and me in my tights But we’ve grown tired of the monotony It’s always the same thing every week A fun night filled with mystery and passion, But also…

My Heart’s Reassurances

What do you mean, “You can trust him”? Hasn’t that gotten you broken in the past? None of the others’ promises had held, They’d never had the desire to make us last What do you mean, “He’s a good man”? Aren’t they all after a woman they can manipulate? One they can bend, one they…

She’s on Top of the World

She’s on top of the world, glowing like a star This world is hers now, she’s stronger than ever With a titanium heart and unbreakable confidence That no one could now possibly sever See, she had to be beaten down to the ground Pushed so far down, she had nowhere to go but up But…

Promise Me

Promise me you won’t let go of my hand On this journey, I need you more than you know When life is pushing, pulling, and pressing me down, I need you there to remind me to glow Promise me you’ll be by my side, darling I’m venturing into the unknown, and yes, I’m scared But…

Broken Shields

She’s thrown away her shield She’s tossed away her shining armor There’s no need for protection anymore, For she knows he’ll never harm her Her smile is no longer something faked And her happiness is no longer a façade If you only knew what a revelation this is, You would stand and applaud Yes, she’s…

First Kiss

What started as a friendship has become so much more So innocent at first, it was just a flutter in my chest But every time you caught my blue-eyed stare, My heart became frantic, never coming to rest I thought of you as unattainable, something I could never have But as time went by, we…

When I Tell You That I Love You…

When I tell you that I love you, I don’t say it for your benefit I say it because it’s a feeling inside That consumes me, and I have to let it out When I tell you that I love you, They’re not just words, my dear It’s my way of telling you that you’re…
