A Letter To September

Dear September, You have been a breath of fresh air, in more ways than one. While smoke filled the sky, my lungs were gripped with a sadness I could not shake. Then you came along before I was even ready. Thanks for that metaphorical slap in the face, September. I honestly really needed that. Although…

A Letter To August

Dear August, I’m sorry I’m late. Everything came crashing down again as if it was only a matter of time. I was holding on to hope that this new adventure would give me what I needed to turn things around yet here I am, scrambling to turn my world right side up. There are moments…

Maybe That’s Okay

I remember the day you told me I wasn’t allowed to place my happiness On a person like you I remember how you didn’t understand That I was telling you I loved you, Or maybe you did. I remember that’s how it always is Your wall My knock You turning your back. Maybe I said…

5 Years From Now

They tell me I have commitment issues That not making a choice, is still making a choice to let others choose for you They ask me what I want to be doing in 5 years time And I tell them I do not know. I am afraid of starting over I am afraid of starting…

Maybe

Maybe there are days That I am more remember Than I am forgive

A Letter To July

Dear July, I want to start by saying thank you. You were not perfect, but you were just what I needed. You took me on weekend getaways and got me out of my shell more than I have ever been before, July. I can’t imagine where I would be now without that. Just for this…

Loneliness

Loneliness hangs heavy at my feet Crawls on me like spiders And fills my lungs with smoke Loneliness reminds me this is my fault Replays every mistake I made Tells me they are better off Loneliness climbs in my bed Suffocating me with memories To keep me awake Loneliness is my past My present My…

Dog-Ear Pages

You make me want to dog-ear pages in the new poetry books you make me want to buy every other week just to explain how I feel in words other than my own and I hate you for that.

That’s Mental! – Pursuit of Happiness

If money could buy happiness, would you budget for it? I wonder sometime, if I can’t take the time to invest in my happiness, would I find it worth the money? I guess I can’t really answer that question. Today has not been a good mental health day and I figured it was time to…

Last

I gave you the last of my words in poem you will never read and a secret I will keep until the sun stops setting

Different

In the stillness of the night When your breath is no longer the soundtrack No longer the lullaby To send me off to sleep I reach for his hands. I’m not sure if I love him But I like that he is different That he is nothing like you And nothing like the one before.

Wanna Bet? – Gratitude

I failed. I wanted so badly to get on track with being thankful for something every day and here I am, at the end of the month, with nothing to show for it. I think there were three times this month I stopped to really think about it. I don’t want to give up trying….
