Taking Flight

When you’re going around next to me,

I feel free and weightless, no gravity

In sight letting me fly and see

Across the sky. You granted me sanity,

But whenever you stepped away,

I would fall down from the sky,

The world would fall into a deep gray

And the world let out a solemn sign

For I wanted to fly higher into the sun

Into the rays of light that shined warmth,

Little did I know the rays of sun was a gun

Loaded with bullets of pain and cold.

Life in Color

Why is it that I feel this way around you,

Colors sound lounder,

Lights are more vibrant,

The world feels better when you’re next to me

And becomes dull when I’m away from you,

For once I finally feel free

From the cage in my mind but as soon

As you walk away, the light dies once again

And the soul cries showers of rain,

Longing to have the colors sound louder,

Longing for the lights to be vibrant,

Longing for your healing presence.

Pulse

Forever lasted the joy you sowed deep

Inside my body, pulsing slowly and

Growing faster, pulsating faster and

Burrowing deeper and stronger through me,

Giving me the energy I need to thrive;

If only it lasted for eternity yet it

Lasted for only moments of life

Because you were fulfilling for just

The few moments you sowed the joy

Deep inside that reached the unreachable.

Marble Tower

There was no room left for you

On the marble pedestal I made

For us to live and breathe side by side,

Slowly weathered away by acid rain

That poured from your finger tips,

Burning me with every touch.

The marble stand begins to bend,

Failing and crumbling because of you,

Burning and unleashing constant pain

Onto my fragile skin,

But I stay will stay strong.

The Deep Ditch

I see the strength I need,

It is easily within my reach,

But my arms feel like lead,

Heavy and dragged down,

Unable to move towards

Motivation and getting out

Of the ditch I’ve been entrapped by;

Success is literally at my fingertips,

If only I could make a fist

And climb out of the ditch

To reach the goals I need to reach.

Inside the Darkness

I lie weak and numb as the darkness

Grows and deepens with hatred,

Dark shadows lick at my wounds,

Blood trickling down my skin.

I wait for the pain to end

And wait for the darkness to disappear

And for light to shine once more.

I wait for there to be a reason to breathe,

For a reason to feel again

Rather than wasting away as a numb

And empty shell of the human I once was.
