Butterfly

My fingertips delicately trace along the worn, white edges. Bordered memories & captured photographs in my mind. The darkness perfectly contrasting with shades of light, adding depth & personal heartprints to every image. Love was the only lens capable enough to change my entire view. My eyes study the fading frame of every one. I…

All You Know

Love me & let me go… I cared for you more than you’ll ever know. No matter our differences, I only wanted happiness for you. But I lost a little more of me with what you continued to do… Broken people still need love too. I wish my love had been enough to heal you.…

Amnesia

The lie I lived with was believing real love could be found in your fears. At the end of it all…you gave me a casket of cold, fabricated tears. To you, love was just another word for power & control. It breaks my heart when you destroy others, trying to make yourself whole. I loved…

Rose

Silk soft petals stained red. A part of me lost in the place I once bled… You needed me to need you. But this wasn’t what love was made to do. You say I hurt you, the first shots fired with your unsteady hands. & you watched without moving as the bullets started to land.…

Leap of Faith

Stop. Pause. Breathe. Rest. Begin. Two selves, divided & at war. My true self knows love, my false self never stops wanting more. One resides in heaven, the other in a self created prison. Childhood started & society reinforced this lifelong division. One side knows truth, the other feeds on external validation & attention. Ego…

I was thirteen…when I was killed, metaphorically. Do you think my heart could heal after what you did, rhetorically. Tiny shards of glass memories, broken & torn deep within my heart. Healing is a process but at times it feels as if the emotions tear my love apart. Sitting at the table, a school book…

Company

Fell from the stars & into a war zone. Did I even have a chance when my fractured heart was infinitely afraid of being left alone? No I didn’t ask for this kind of life but it was given to me. In the past, I believed a martyr was all I would ever be. Today…

I Surrender

Time is forever fading away….moments & memories collected day by day. Human nature to worship conflict & pain. Without the intensity of it all,  the world seems too quiet & tame. I have no more self defenses, what you do, it hurts me through & through. I realize now the nature & nurture I’ve been…

Losing You

Count the years….& I don’t know how to face the entire loss of you. It’s just hard when I think of everything you used to put me through. Pseudo apologies in your eyes & I can’t help but to count the lies. How do you erase your father, how do you forgive your mother? Bitterness…
