People believe that their flame is only going to die when they choose to blow it out, then they’ll realize they were sadly mistaken when suddenly one day a gust of wind leaves them in complete darkness.

Museum of Light

His eyes were
small & dark
and constantly
f l o a t e d
around the room in question.
When they did stop
they rested on her
and his face would become
a museum of light.
As soon as she looked
his way, however,
his glare resumed to the ground
or a faraway object.
The light in his eyes
clicked off
and his curious expression
turned to stone
just in case
she was trying to read his face.
And she always was
And sometimes he would be
just a little too late
She would catch
the museum of light
she always hoped to
see on his face…
Even if it was just
for a moment,
that’s all she needed
to keep her going.

Helping/Hurting

At this point I can’t tell anymore which is the disease and which is the remedy…
What is hurting
and what is helping?

Reverse Psychology

I can feel these
memories fading
and I can feel this
relationship slipping. 
It seems every time was
to have loved and lost,
how do I know if it
was ever even love at all?
And so the saying goes:
out with the old,
in with the new.
What if
the new needs pushing far?
What if
the old needs holding on?

Playing the Role of Someone I’m Not

Do I speak more
and let you think
less of me
or
keep silent?
Is it okay to
let parts of me stay hidden;
digging;
constantly trying to
find a way out;
quietly killing me?
Is it worth
the absence of words
to veil the interests
I have that are deemed
‘abnormal’ by society
in order to keep close
the people in my life?
Because I’m not sure
what I would do without
those individuals,
but I also have spent
years as an actress
playing the role
of someone
I’m not
and it’s a job
that compensates
too low of a pay
for me to live off of
anymore.

A haiku!

It feels like nothing
But nothing’s the beginning
You can build from there

YOURE NOT “DEAD INSIDE” YOURE TALKING, BREATHING, THINKING, MOVING.
YOURE VERY MUCH ALIVE.
YOURE A UNIQUE WORK OF ART LIVING ON A GRAND EARTH.
ITS NOT TOO LATE: INHALE, EXHALE, SMILE AT THE SUN
THEN LET THE DEMONS INSIDE KNOW THAT THEY HAVENT WON

A hand to hold
may be

But I promise you
It exists

First poem on my typewriter 😊 Sorry if at the beginning I only have short poems, or some errors, I’m still not an expert at using it haha. Follow for more poems!
