I wish i could get out of my head Just some time to break away  From the madness. Not a moments peace When my thoughts are swirling of you.   -May 2020

 I’LL ALWAYS TRY TO REACH YOU  

I don’t know where you go  when you’re away from me. One minute you’re here  and the next  there’s a mile wide wall between us  built with pebbles and stones  of misplaced anger and insecurity.

Days when your world’s on a tilt

I take it all so personally Can’t seem to let the wrong words go I just want to stay in bed all day Shut the blinds and close out the world Call in sick to work Think about texting my selfish ex. I’m just having one of those days where I’m grinding my teeth just to make it through.  …

A Stubborn Heart

No matter how stern you try to be with your heart Her desires are much more stubborn and in a battle of wills She will always win.   -Feb 2019

Inspired

Life didn’t turn out the way I planned But because of you is how I still stand you’re the solid ground beneath my feet you stand strong even when I accept defeat when my heart grew too tired You were the beauty that kept me inspired It felt like mountains I was trying to get through I would have given…
