Kiss

Forbidden fruit becomes a necessity Can’t breathe, yet I’m full of life Nothing can touch me, hurt me, scar me Unless you stop right now Oceans will rise and fall within themselves Time will stop and start all over again Hands begin to shake Memory is leaving me No thoughts of where I’ve been or…

Battle Scars

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,…
