Love Posion

I feel ashamed that I am not strong enough to move on.

I’ve never kept it far from my mind though it’s been so long.

When I feel close to someone, I try to find the comfort I need.

Only to regret the vulnerability.

Vulnerability makes me feel anxious and dumb.

Why am I so scared to trust and allow myself freedom.

Can I ever not care or care without pain. 

Because this pain is keeping me from what ever remains. 

Light is my home but I live in darkness.

Am I one of the people who can flip the light switch?

Don’t Give Up – It’s Near

She only sees reason to blame

herself for all of the pain.

She knows if she leaves

it will still remain.



She shades her eyes from the light

hoping it is all just a lie;

She will wake up and everything

will be alright.



It already hurts too much.

What if she just messes up

just like the other times: 

she gives up.



She has been searching for many years.

Everyday hoping she is near.

She needs strength and instead 

finds fear.
