Happiness

Whatever you are feeling in this very moment, Just know, you deserve happiness,The anguish, the enveloping darkness,None of it will remain,Just know, you deserve happiness,No matter how many people you choose to push away,Some will leave and some will remain, but the fact is,You still deserve happiness,Not the temporary fleeting kind,But the one deep in…

Sitting in Lonely

I realised the other day that I don’t know how to simply be,How to sit in the pockets of silence in my life and let them bubble over,I avoid letting the wall ebb and flow with my griefThe losses in my life,I keep myself mentally busy so the feelings don’t catch up to,Creeping in as…

Doors

Some swing openSome slam shutSome creakSome don’t make a soundSome appear to be haunted Some are ever reliable,No matter; they are all still doorsWhether they are ajar or notThey will in some way openIt might not be your door or your time, But a door will open for youAnd reveal the path you were meant…

Angry Tears

You’ve got me here shedding angry tears,Heavy and wet,Full of contempt and hurt,Tears I never thought I would be shedding over you,Tears, because I don’t want to have to get to know someone else,The familiar dance of starting over,The new introductions and surface level conversations,I don’t want any of it,I want you,Angry tears because you…

I Miss You

It’s only been a few days,And I know I should be patient,Give you the space you have asked for,And while I wholeheartedly respect that,I still miss you,I see you in every pocket of my day,Making mental lists of all the things I wish I could tell you,My finger hesitates over your name on the phone,I…

What If?

I often wonder, What if you realize I’m really not that special after all?What if you find someone else?What if I’m not good enough?These emotions are fleeting and I know they have no place in our relationship,But in moments of doubt, they lurk,I am aware this is something I need to work on for myself,Because…

Why?

You ask me why,Why is the sky blue?Why do we breathe air?Why does my heart beat with excitement at the thought of you?Why do I feel nothing but security when I am in your arms?Why do your lips taste so good when ours meet?Why are the stars aligned? Why is the earth round? Why do…

I Hesitate

I hesitate, To tell you just how much you mean to me,For fear that you’ll know too much,I hesitate,To let you fully in because then you’ll be able to hurt me,I hesitate,Because being around you is a feeling I cannot describe,I hesitate,Because in all my life, I thought I had felt it all,But the feeling…
