Pain

The eyes hide pain that have chose to resurface again
Through the fear of sin
I use the pen to face my demons
I’m tired of believing the lies
That have influenced countless cries
I can’t deny the feelings
Emptiness is not hollow
It’s something there
Will you care to dream?
And realize things are not always as they seem
If you want to sing
Let me hear you
Your voice sounds so beautiful
That is you
Truth sits on the mental
I’m gone make a move to reach my full potential
Pain is nonexistent
It breeds in the distance
In one instance
Don’t look

Daydreaming 10-01-17

Memories with you stand out in my daydreams
Something feels right so I have to figure out what it means
Stuck at the light because I went left and not right
How would things be if they were tight?
I’m frustrated off my feelings
Of wanting to get to know you
I took you as a risk
You were something new
I see you in my head
& from time to time I’ll remember the things you said
Lying right next to you in our bed
I just wanted us to get ahead
But we’ve held onto so many goodbyes
Sometimes we have to let dreams die

On My Mind

Now you’re on my mind
In this time we’ve become closer
Placing my head and heart on your shoulders for you to carry
Love never meant anything to me
When I get your calls I blush
I’ll be the first to admit
This isn’t love, this is lust
But I want you
It’s nothing new that I’ve been feeling you
Proof in the lips when we speak
Your kisses are beautifully placed all on my body

Sacrifice

As a sacrifice to my soul
I remain whole with integrity
Resilience has been permanently embedded in me
Freedom is real
& my truth exposes the lies
They tried to hide it from me
But I found it
And now I’m clowning
Snatching away all the feelings that got me down
& fuck that frown
Now I’m smiling
To remain beautiful I stay true
I started focusing on me & stopped worrying about you
I’ll never move
I stand firm on my ground
& I’m rarely loud so you’ll never hear a sound
