A Violent Storm // Survival ; a poem

Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash
Take me to a better place...
One without hatred.
I wonder, could I be fated
To live a life of fear?
Struck by sharp swords.
Scarred through piercing shots.
Violence can keep your mouth shut.
Promises can be easily revoked,
Love lost through a lack of hope.
I want to be the one
Who can survive the quicksand,
Hold onto the ones I love,
To not judge when I don't understand.
Living in fear can keep you quiet,
But much is lost when the world stays silent.

Fly Away // Learning ; a poem

Photo by Stephen Leonardi on Unsplash
I wonder, are you really speaking
If you're not communicating?
Can you fly with damaged wings?
So many thoughts, so many dreams...
Yet, I only feel and pretend to know
A world I cannot not understand.
It seems I may have to face my fears.
Regroup once again...
Tell me, will I learn to soar
When I've never flown before?

My Story // Chapter ; a poem

Photo by Juli Kosolapova on Unsplash
Many times I believe my life is over
But I realize it has only just begun.
My story is only a chapter
In an abundance of novels.
A character whose world
Has only begun to unfold.

Battleground // Regardless; a poem

Photo by Sage Friedman on Unsplash
Life is a battleground.
 Numerous twists and turns,
 Unsettled, Uncertain…
 One wonders if conflicts can truly be resolved.
 Sitting on a park bench,
 I contemplate meaning.
 A sentimental feeling washes over me.
 Will I ever be satisfied?
 I stand my course
 I refuse to backdown,
 Regardless of the outcome.

Sometimes // Worst of Times; a poem

Photo by Thought Catalog on Unsplash
Sometimes, I wish you could see me,
 But your clarity is tainted.
  What you envision
   Is too far removed,
    Your heart poisoned 
     By deceit and desires.
      Sometimes, I wish I could save you,
       But I realize you must save yourself.
        I hope you think of me
         When you ponder your existence.
          I hope you remember me
           In the worst of times.

I Miss // Being Normal; a poem

Photo by Rafael Garcin on Unsplash
I miss being normal.
I want to eat like everyone else!
Drink like the cool kids.
Dress in the finest fashion,
Dream of a marvelous mansion.
But when I think about these things...
I wonder if they will make me any different?

Precious // Moments; a poem

Photo by nine koepfer on Unsplash

Sometimes you don’t need to search for inspiration.
Sometimes the greatest ideas
Come from within yourself.
Maybe the path to moving forward
Requires taking steps backward.
Taking stock of precious moments
Can make you last a lifetime.

Manic Pixie // Dream Girl; a poem

Photo by Elia Pellegrini on Unsplash

I beg and plead
To be the cool girl.
I want to drag you away from suffering,
Take you on an adventure.
Sometimes, I dream I am mysterious…
Your personal brand of fun.
But you tell me I already am.
You keep on saying
I don’t have to change anything.
But inside I believe
I have to change everything.
Lack of self-esteem
Can make you want to lose yourself.

Buried // Stuffed; a poem

Photo by Andrew Neel on Unsplash

When I look into the mirror,
I see someone who is searching,
For answers, questions,
To guide them through their journey.
I wish I could be someone else.
A person not in pain,
Neither sad nor alone,
Who stuffs suffering in shelves,
Burying their burdens away.

Secrets // Affection; a poem

Photo by Samantha Green on Unsplash

She kissed my hand,
Said, “Goodbye,”
Because she always wanted
To see what it looked like on the other side.
I think she loved me
Or did she only want me?
Underneath sheets, behind closed doors,
Love was easy and simple.
Once we were exposed,
Affection took its toll.
Maybe some secrets
Should remain hidden.


This poem was inspired by Oscar Wilde.
