One Thread Away

I’m not sleeping well anymore I’m plunging into any other reality I can get my hands on And isolating myself from the one I’m in I wake up sad and irritated Like I’ve already dragged myself through hours of social interactions I cried all night but I’m one thread away from coming undone again. -August 2018

Never Meant to be Mine

I know what I should be doing And that makes it even worse that I’m not. Everyone around me wants to help But I’m the one who has to put in the work. It’s easier said than done Feels like a battle that can’t be won. The frustration wears me down every time Not even sure if the view will…

Weeping Hurricane

I’m sorry this is how your life story ends You cried easily this year When she showed you her wedding dress you cried And when i showed you this book, the tears fell again. The clouds were nice enough to cry the day after you passed. I wonder if there’s a part of you that’s happy When you see the…

Don’t Read This

I keep writing of things I should be keeping to myself Thoughts that should never make their way to paper. I can’t help myself, I need some relief. I can’t let issues and people go. I’m trying to work on myself But it’s just so hard to do on your own. I need more help than I’m willing to admit….

These Roads Aren’t Safe to go Alone

I’m fighting with you Instead of leaning in My head’s a mess I can’t keep this steering wheel straight I’m forgetting that I have you in the passenger side I just need someone to hold me And i know you need it too. I’m angry at myself for not reaching you sooner I saw you on the road You eyes…

The Head Aches

My head hurts all the time And sometimes there’s this dull shoving at my forehead. I can’t seem to gain control of my emotions Every morning I wonder what dark room I’ll step into next I don’t wake up on the wrong side of the bed I’ve rolled off the cliff and hit the hardwood floor. I told the Doctor…

I Don’t Know How to Handle Missing You

A moment alone and my thoughts lead me straight to you And my heart breaks over and over again How can anyone else can handle this pain in their chest? I want to write about you But i’ve already cried too much today I think about you And it’s like i’m reliving it all over again Cant even write the…

The Strongest Woman I’ve Ever Loved

I know you’re hurting now, love. You’ve been the sole warrior Fighting against an army of thousands. We’re here beside you And we will carry you When it is time. You’ve given it your all Just let us know, darling When you’re ready to rest your head.

Resilience

We’re in the same prison, Baby just different cells It’s hard to see you in the darkness I know we’ll make it out fine Just resting and buying up time. But the longer we stay here the weaker we get We’re lifelong soldiers, resilience is in our blood As much as this devil is.

The Me I Am Because of You

I’m not the man I used to be My heart tumbled out my mouth When I gave you my first and only “I love you”. Never felt so compelled to have someone be mine You’re the magic i didn’t know I needed in my life. I’ve never been in love like this before And I won’t be the fool to…
