Not sure why but this song is all I can think of

You’re the best I ever had
And I’m trying not to get stuck in my head
But I’ve read that soda kills you and Jesus saves
On a bathroom wall where I saw your name
You’re the best I ever had
I won’t be the same

Demons At Bay

Think you’ve got me

All figured out

Well think again

I’m full of doubts

There’s part of this heart

That I’ll never show

There’s a piece of me

That you’ll never know

I’m restless deep within

A mystery to myself

Learning all that I am

Is not all that I’ve felt

I’m a lock without a key

I’m a poem without a rhyme

Darling, seek me all you want

But there’s nothing left to find

Love, can’t you see

This is something

I have to face

In my own strength

There’s part of my heart

I’ve never seen

There’s a piece of my life

That’s long been missing

I’m restless fighting this

And nervous all around

Finding all my answers

Connected to my crown

Alone in my loneliness

I’m better off this way

No one can help me through this

Only I can face this pain

Everyone You Love Will Hurt You

You were always

My favorite distraction

Now you’re distracting me

In ways I never fathomed

The kind of ways

No one enjoys

Being pulled apart

Piece by piece

Until

There’s nothing left

To tear open

My soul laid bare

Before the world

My breast exposed

My chest cut open

The divine pouring forth

From my blood

There I lay

Decaying in my own filth

All that is beautiful

All that is worn

All that is I

All that used to be “us”

Until

There’s nothing left

To rot away

My bones crumbling

To ashes

My flesh absorbed

Into the earth

My blood run dry

Only ashes remain

Subtle, scattered and sinking

There I am no more

Transformed by the

Passing of time

Gone yet present

Invisible yet visible

Weak yet strong

Unaware yet conscious

Until

I rise again

This time

A different form

Unknown to me

Foreign and familiar

Growing from

Infancy of the soul

Painfully

Slowly

Stumbling at first

Awkward and frail

Seeping in potential

Standing

Crawling

Walking

Running

Until

I fly

Towards the sun

Free to live

Free to die

And free to all

That lies in-between

Before

And after

See…

No matter what happens

I survive

Not only that

I thrive

Not only that

I am alive

Always alive

The Art Fair

Beautiful moments

Lack in luster

If you’ve no one

To share them with

I set alone

Surrounded by people

Atop the courthouse steps

Overlooking the fair

Waves of harmony

Floating past my ears

Winds of Autumn

Flowing through my hair

Moments like these

Remind me of

My perpetual state

Of loneliness

The girl

Many love

But few enjoy

I’m strong

So no one sees

The sadness lingering

In my heart

They wouldn’t

Believe it anyhow

I look too alive

In my bright blue

And orange

A flower in my hair

Contentment

Mask my acceptance

Of loneliness

I’ve learned

To be so

I’ve learned

The art of

Getting by

Solo in life

Together long enough

To cause a fuss

Apart long enough

To make them miss me

But not enough

For them to do

Anything about it…

The Taste of Your Love

Your kisses are rough

Like the taste of your love

Ferociously hungry

To devour the parts of me

Left hidden inside

Left unsatisfied

Your fingers are tender

Like a soft glowing ember

Across my body

Causing a glow

I’m afraid to show

Your body is trembling

Atop my skin

Your wondrous release

Lies on top of me

In this divine chaos

Little More Than…

I need a little more than maybe

I need a little more than words on a page

I need a little more than I’m sorry

I need a little more than you’re lovely

I need a little more than empty promises

I need a little more than short lived nights

I need a little more effort

I need a little more time

I need a little more lovin’

I need a little more space

I need a little more embrace

I need a little more less of me and more of you

Talk is words

And talk is cheap

Why the hell

Didn’t you

Fight for me?

All I wanted

Was an apology

I’m good enough

To keep around

When we agree

But when shit

Hits the fan

I’m nothing

Words are words

And talk is cheap

You said

Our friendship

Meant everything

Why would

You lie to me?

Your stubbornness

Left us empty

Now you’re all alone

Miserable

Without me

I’m the one girl

You should’ve

Fought to keep
