Storm

In the eye of the stormCan I escapeUnscathedWill I look backOn this destructionTo see the rebuilding of loveWill rose bushes bloomFrom broken heartsCareful not to let anyoneToo closeUntil the right one comesWith gentle handsWho appreciates the beautyAnd understands that loveIs not perfectThat thorns grow to protectAnd distractThey are the stormSurrounding the soft petalsThat wrap aroundWhat…

The Storm

The trees bend and sway In the brewing storm They were build to withstand Violent winds And heavy rain In this metaphor I’m not sure If I am the tree Or the storm Or if I Am just a girl Trying to make mountains Out of nothing If I’m really here at all

Telephone Wires

Two by two The birds fly by Dancing in time To the sound of their love And the hustle and bustle Of the streets below On the telephone wires Two stand side by side Making plans for their next adventure But outside my window Is a bird Perched on the highest point Of the tree…

Hour Glass

Everyone tosses around love Like it’s indestructible Like it doesn’t crack Under pressure Like it won’t need mending Or time Or I’m sorry And I feel empty Like the love I could give Has cracked and crumbled And turned to dust Like the hour glass The way time passes quickly When we stop paying attention…

November Came

Some days I still give in To the weight of darkness I carry with me But November came With it’s rolling fog And frozen leaves And for the first time In who knows how long November came And I stayed Wrapped in warmth And his arms And in this moment I forget the weight And…

One Step Back

It’s so easy to write about her To recall the pain And pour it into words But It’s different with you We are not perfect Bumping elbows And sharp tongues Everyday we are learning How to spend our lives together And still I reach back I do not know how to see progress When I…

Disappearing Act

Mama said there’d be days like this There’d be days like this, my mama said. What mama didn’t know Is that days like this Arrive like disappearing acts Which sounds vague, I know, but hear me out. This morning I woke up Or so I thought. I opened my eyes Threw back the covers And…

Rewind

When push comes to shove You’re never ready to say goodbye It’s always one more day And maybe we can fix it Our hearts were made to believe In happily ever after So you can imagine How, after all that’s been said, I wish I could take it back And rewind To the day we…

For Addy

This year is different. I’ve already lost you in so many ways But tonight I felt your name Lost on the tip of my tongue And I cried myself to sleep. Because it’s just another day To all the people I never told, And our little family Couldn’t be farther apart. What would they think…

The Unlwelcome

I dreamt of you last night A kind of reminder Of what we’ve gone through before The unwelcome The weight of blame And after all of that I still wasn’t ready to say goodbye Even knowing how it ends I wonder how I ever did

Always Tomorrow

Tomorrow we will turn the page And close the book Tomorrow The story ends And I will have to carry on Tomorrow, Always tomorrow, I will say goodbye To the stars To the moon To us Tomorrow I will not wake up And tell you I love you No matter how badly I want to

Torrential Downpours

I told myself Today The sun rose Somewhere in the sky Behind torrential downpours Which is the truth But it’s also what I tell myself On days When the darkness is winning.
