Where were you?

Where were you when I needed

you the most? 

Where is it that you have gone? 

I search for you day and night

I fall to pieces all the time 

Crying before I lay in bed

Wishing to hear your voice one

last time

When you broke my heart is

when my world came crashing

all around...

Everyone attempts to pick up 

the pieces

No one ever has the right type

of glue..

Only you my one true love can...

From Abuse to a Farm

A bitter sweet sunrise to watch every morning. Baby birds high in the trees chipping, waiting for mom to return with food. Chickens running around and waking everyone within miles. Dogs herding the sheeps, making sure they don't get lost. Every animal is awake and ready to go.

 

Farming is a hard business. Gathering animals and making sure they're fed, well rested, and safe, is harder than you think.

Dew Drops

Morning dew drops shine,
As the sun slowly rises,
But have left by night.

Where Were You?

Where were you?

The sparks got caught on the wind and they drifted through our town.
The swords came for the children and they stole them while we slept.
The blood covered the roads like rain and it smothered the sound of our screams.
In the morning we awoke to darkness or we didn't wake at all.

Where were you?

Not a trace of your life or death the next day.
We searched until we realised the truth.
You were hiding, cowering, roting in the dirt....

Where were you?

When I needed you

When I grew up

When I was lonely

When I felt lost

Where were you?

When I came crying?

The doors were locked

Your phone rang,

over and over again.

Where did you go?

You were supposed to be there for me when I called.

You were supposed to protect me and comfort me.

Where were you?

When the blood ran from my wrists,

I was so scared so scared so scared.

This Isn't Me

I couldn’t feel the cobblestones that pierced my flesh, creating fresh scars across the soles of my feet. As I slipped from shadow to shadow, narrowly missing the patches of light that flickered from light bulbs in lamps littered along the street, I didn’t dare to look back. I knew what I was to see, but I didn’t want to believe this was real. This wasn’t real. This wasn’t me. I shuddered at the thought and shrugged my worn coat...

Hush, Little Baby

Hush, Little Baby

The baby monitor on the bedside table started to wail, screams and sobs coming out in static shrieks. I let out a small sigh, scrunching up my nose before throwing off the covers. My husband began to stir beside me, moving to push himself out of bed before I put a hand gently on his side. Leaning in, I pressed a kiss to his cheek, whispering into his ear.

“It’s alright, I’ve got this one.”

He mumbled...

Floating

It’s the feeling of sleeping in on a Sunday morning, tucking your exposed feet back into the covers as you curl up in the warmth kept from a cool night, sunlight streaming in from your window.

It’s the feeling of getting a bright red ‘A’ on an assignment you worked so hard on that you feel like nothing could keep down your high for at least a week.

It’s the feeling of hearing your favourite song on the radio, and...

A Troubled Tale

      Was this really happening?
      That was all I could think as I walked into Centra, the nation's capital. It was so much smaller than I had expected, but at least ten times more different, too. Cars were used more often here and the roads were paved and well kept to accommodate them. The buildings were all jammed up next to each other. They switched between bright colors and more natural tones, but all of...

Mine

Anger bottled up inside of me like hot, sticky sulfur. I wanted to just rip his head into pieces. At the same time as never letting go. I vigorously scribbled notes in my books. None of them made any sense. I was  furious with him. But I love him. He's my world. My oxygen. Mine.
