Undeniable truth

I'm in quite a bit of pain right now and the doctors don't know what is wrong with me. Right now its a bunch of guesses being thrown around in the air as if my health were a thing that was mildly disinteresting. 
Ouch. Pain. Again it comes in waves.
I plead for a distraction anything will do.
I send a text it reads "I love you."
The response comes back bringing with it another wave of. Ouch. Pain, "Do you?"
How do I express through my shifts in appetite, my fluctuating body temperature and yet again. Ouch. The pain, that there is an undeniable truth sitting before us.

" I love you I always have and I always will. You drive me crazy, up a wall, you can be insensitive at times and "  Ouch. Pain. "There is no denying that" Ouch. "I love you. When I fall asleep I dream that in a perfect world you would be my future...

Neverthought

Never thought we could be friends.
Every movement I despised.
Very skeptical of your critical eyes.
Each day went by,
Remembering the
Time in which I thought I
Hated you.
Oblivious were you to the
Undeniable dislike I held.
Grief it caused me was
Heightened by your 
Terrible pettiness.

Hear Me Now

My voice barely above a whisper, "Can you hear me?" 
Shivering, curled into a fetal position, my tears drying on my face allowing the cold air to chap my cheeks.

"Can you hear me? I know you heard me!" I stand with my fists at my sides as if something is holding them down. "Look at me! Hear me! Won't you hear me?" Anger spills from my words.
He looks up and takes another puff of his cigarette, "What do you want me to say?"
Angry tears bubble up into my eyes blinding me, "I want you to say that you love me! I want you to say this without me telling you that you need to say it! I want you to hold me! I want you to tell me everything is going to be okay! I want you to hear me!" I blindly swipe for his cigarette knocking it to the floor.
He looks at me again and steps toward me and...

Now your

Now your back, 
Its as if my heart skipped a track.
I had the same songs on repeat,
was it love that made my heart start beating.
Every time you come around
Its still like your not around.
You could walk away today
and you won't hear me say.
I still love you
I still want you
because I don't 
I've faced my ghost.
you left me when I needed you most.
now your back,
you dont get to have me back
how will i know 
you got me stick and stnes cant break me and neither can you.
 

The exception to my people

You were my love, my life,
The reason that i want to stay alive.
You told me
“you're the exception to my people,
you're the reason that I stay.
The reason that I get up everyday.”
“There is a reason that I love you,
And I will tell you everyday,
My love for you will never fade away.”
It didn't.
At least not that day.
You said
“you were the exception to my people
But I can't see why I should stay
I think it's best that I go away”
There was a reason that I loved you
And that will never change
I never even got a chance to say.
“How could you do this to me?
How could you get up and leave?
I am down on my knees
Begging you not to leave.”
“I’m the exception to your people
And i'm reminded everyday
I'm the reason you didn't want to stay.
There was a time that you...

Everybody needs somebody

Everybody needs somebody. Somebody who understands them, who accepts them. Somebody to see who they really are and not run away. Everybody needs somebody to turn to when they can't see because their tears cloud their eyes. Everybody needs somebody to hold onto because the weight that they carry is too much to bear alone. Everybody needs somebody to talk to when the room goes silent and the only thing left to listen to is the song of a sad heart. Everybody needs someone  to remind them that they aren't alone. Everybody needs someone to remind them of who they are  because sometimes we don't know who we are, but through the eyes of others we can see. Everybody needs somebody  to hear the pain in our voices when we can't hear it ourselves. Everybody needs somebody  to see past the smile that we plaster on our face to hide away our tear stained cheeks. In short, everybody needs somebody.

Our Light

I was a fire, you were my ice.
I would alight, but you never fight.
When things got dark I locked you out.
Won't let you in, and I need you now.

I was a fire, I was a flame.
You were my ice, my wind, and rain.
I thought you loved me then and now.
I was wrong don't know what to do now.

I was a fire I was a flame.
You were ice, its such a shame.
We went together like love can do.
You blew me out, Ohh shame on you.

You were my best friend you were my light.
You were my love I always fight.
I didn't know how to let you in.
Cause in the end I always win

just not this time...

I didn't fight I didn't call you back.
I needed you and that's a fact.
You walked away, I'm not the same.
I never even tried to call your name.

I said okay,
Okay, darling. ...

Untitled

Cracked and tarnished.
Scratched and bruised, the mask falls away. Floating ever so gently to the ground. All eyes are on me now. I can feel them, so intent, looking for any visible blemish or imperfection. They have plenty to look at. My skin is not perfect, for it has a slight red tinge because I blush underneath the scrutiny of their gazes. No mascara to highlight the dark green that swamps in my watery gaze. No red marker to accentuate the fact that I have a mouth full of words that are dying to come out. I stand up here Untitled. I stand up here and I wait to be called. Wait as these perfect strangers decide my identity.
With dignity I stand before them all, and they contemplate.
Mousy? Pretty? Kind? Annoying? Outgoing? Popular? Wallflower? 
The possibilities are endless and I see them all swimming before me, each person adding to my newly crafted mask. I bend down to...

Our Light

A long time ago
I thought I was in love
You were my world
My heart
But I'm afraid that's come apart

We said

We were gonna build mountains
And we were gonna climb hills
We were gonna move mountains
Are you scared of heights still?
We knew where we were gonna go
Do you know where you're going still?
We were gonna move mountains
And we were gonna climb hills

Ask anyone
If You were sweet and kind
Ask anyone
If we were fine
Ask anyone
You stole my heart
Ask anyone
They will say I’m dead inside.

Because Kind hearts they hurt
Kind hearts they burn
Kind hearts they sting and mar

Kind hearts they scar
Kind hearts they rage
Kind hearts crush kind hearts
My kind heart...


You said we are all of God's people
Now bow your head and pray
If we are all of God's people
Why do I hurt this way?
We knew where...

Am I Crazy?

Am I crazy?
You said you loved me, right?
Wrong.
You love me...
But that is wrong too.
You love her. 
My green eyes of envy will never compare to her brown eyes that have sucked you in so completely like a dark pit of sand.
Her dark hair an image of how my heart grows darker, as my own light hair shines in shame.
My fair skin is but an imperfect mistake compared to her coppery tone.
Am I crazy for noticing she is everything I'm not?
Am I crazy for noticing her every move, my every flaw?
You said you loved me more right?
Wrong.
I love you...
But that is wrong too.
You aren't who you use to be.
You aren't those words you flung at me so carelessly. The ones that told of my happily ever after.
You would wait forever for me you said?
I guess forever took to long.
Am I crazy, or am...

Simply Me

Why can't I simply love myself?
You are so beautiful they say to me.
But what is beauty? 
Is it the mascara and foundation I apply so faintly? Is it the fake smile I plaster onto my face?
Is it my kind words and optimism that seep out in tones of falsetto?
Is it the hugs and compassion I give out seemingly selflessly?
I am not me.
I am not that smile.
I am not those pretty words and tinkling giggles.
I am the tears and the angry words screamed in an empty car on my way to work. I am the missed sighs in moments of silence.
I am a grieving heart that hasn't forgotten the ones who have long forgotten her.
I am simply me.
The girl who was found under a tree.
"The exception to people," he said to me, but what did that even mean? When he wanted no one around he still wanted me there.
The ultimate...

The exception to people.
The ultimate ice breaker.
Sorry, I didn't catch your name?
That is because I let you know me before I let you view my mask.
A mask that I threw far away whenever you...
