Every night my dreams bring me backBut really forwardA new lifeA new world But yet the sameBlue eyes A beautiful life And a moving train to keep pushing us forward
I feel the nights start to cave in on me again. Laying my head down in bed and the thoughts start to race through my mind. The days start blending together and simple tasks start becoming exhausting. The shower floor becomes a friend when I’m just too tired to stand. The light starts to get darker by the day and the days grow shorter. But the difference now is I won’t let the nights take me. The days will be tracked on a calendar to make sure they don’t blend together. The shower floor is temporary and I’ll make sure to stand up at the end. This time my light won’t dim and if it does, I’ll make sure my night light is on and there are extra batteries nearby. The darkness doesn’t get to drown me. It can surround me but I’m choosing to stay on the surface and that is what will keep me afloat.
My nights have been loudScreaming at me through a megaphone Until all I can pay attention to are my thoughtsLoud enough to hear everything I try to push awayEveryday, all dayMy dreams have never been more clearShattered glass to a full length mirrorMy reflection looking through broken pieces But it’s not my eyes that my gaze reaches
I know that there is more to this EarthBecause of the feeling of familiarity I felt when I first met youHow comforted I became when you first touched my skinThe screaming of finally when we met for the first timeThe sparks our bodies sing when they become oneI know there is more because I feel you even when you’re no where nearI know you even when I think I don’tAnd this unconditional familiar loveIs something that earth and humanityCould never conjure upThis is a love from many lifetimesA bond tied together at the soulHere to help growHere to healBut built on throughout Many lives that this planet may not everGet a chance to understandI know there is more because I know we are moreHow beautiful is the feeling of finallyAnd how safe is feeling togetherEven when so far away
I spent a long time pretendingThat I don’t carePushing away the good Hiding in the depths of my mindThat sometimes works against me Instead of for meBecause everything I cared about Seemed to slowly find a wayTo fall apart and fall awaySo instead of throwing myself into the beauty of everything I chose to hide awayAnd explore all of the darkness of the worldWhile running away from the light I choose light nowI choose to see that caring Doesn’t always come with painThat all of the good in my life Stayed with meI’ve decided to swim through my hectic mindAnd understand myself deep underneathInstead of ignore the fuelThat ignites the fire I set to myselfIt’s time to understand the darknessSo that I no longer run away from light.
There was a moment Earlier in the dayOn that same couch Your hair was up The sun outlined your faceAnd all I could think Was that you are the most beautiful creation I have ever seen In any lifetimeAnd I couldn’t stop staringIt felt so familiarLike I was meant to be in that momentLike I’ve been in that moment 100 timesAnd I knew my whole life was about to changeAnd I never wanted to go back Even though I was petrified to go forward
I was asked today if I miss the West CoastBecause the snow has been fallingThe cold brutally pushed into my skinAnd the ice lines the driveways But it took less than a second to say noBecause easy doesn’t always mean betterAnd the warmth doesn’t take away my need for the coldAnd you can’t be reminded of the summers heat Without witnessing the winter frost lining your windows
Somewhere in the forest of Louisiana- on a notepad
The girl with the broken smileThe smile that’s been through it allI want her to stay awhileBut my heart is afraid of the fallIt’s the girl that has won ever battleAnd continues to put up a fightIt’s her smile that makes my mind rattleThrough the darkness her smiles my lightIt’s the girl that has rode through the trialsWith light and beauty that continues to shineFor that girl there is no amount of milesThat would keep me from calling her mineIt’s the girl that just radiates beauty Pretty eyes that show straight to her soulWith those eyes she can see right through meAnd that smile that’s taking a tole
Speaking through our restless mindsIn 5D through space and timeLost in translation when pushed through spaceFlashback images of each other’s faceMeditation and deep sleep thoughtsSearching for home but still feel lostCreeping in just to push them back outA fire burning through the west coast droughtThe east coast cold in snow covered land The in between heat in the desert sandEarth wasn’t made for connections this strongCan lessons be learned through separations loud songOne asleep while the other wide awakeOpened my eyes to burn through past life mistakesThey say grass can grow once the fires put outWater and healing to prevent deserts droughtRebirth and regrown green grass in ash filled landSeeds coming through the waterless sandFire to earth and old wood to the flameA bomb to the land to fix what we madeDestruction and chaos to learn how to growGrowing together if we reap what we sow
The light shined in my eyes this morningAnd it reminded me of herShe has always been light Always warmthCreeping through my skinWarming my insidesReminding me the cold is only temporary That rainy days won’t last forever She’s always been lightShining brightly in my eyes Blinding me while I try to stay Between the two white lines of the standard highway Showing me how to let go of the steering wheelLong enough to know I never needed white lines anywayShe has always been the sun to meA consistent lightEven when hidden behind dark clouds That seem to stay for far too longOr when it’s just a little too hot on a summer daySo I stay inside to not be burnt by the flamesShe is still the sunAnd I’ll always find comfort knowing She’s there, even when I cannot feel her on my skin

I read your poemsAnd everything comes rushing backNo matter how long it wasI might be able to ease the painBut I can never erase youNor the feeling of having you,I wish you never stopped imagining.I wish it was different.And if I had another chance,In altered circumstances,I would love you,Better than I I loved you in this lifetime.©helliad

I don't know who I am anymore.You took a part of me with you when you left.The part of me that knew what direction it was going.I'm lost now.I often find myself standing still,and anytime I try to moveI just run in circles.I'm trying to find my way back.I'm lost without a map.I'm lost without you.I'm lost without myself.w.p.g
When you lose someone you love,it doesn't endwith that event.or with their funeral,or with their nameon the tombstone.You lose them againand again, every day,in small moments thatcalch you off guard.
Selflove is a #superpower. Some people are lucky to learn it before the heartbreak. I learnt it after my heartbreak. Its a #superpower unto you.Its that power that will be with you till your last breath.#selflove #iwrite #purefeelings @writersnetwork @ericwk #truelove #pod #mirakee #caption
Selflove is a superpower!
Since the day you have left me, the time and company I'm giving myself is the most precious gift you have given to me.I can't express my gratitude that you made me meet me. The one with the fewest lies and truest ties.Some days I think, how lucky you were to have my company. I can't share a bit of me with anyone now. I just love me.Pure love. Sheer love. True love.

Tiny saplings grew under the gigantic tree you cut down.Never did you know thepotential of them to bring back the whole jungle.©branthi_speaks

This earth is heaviest. It holds all of your restlessness.What hurts is how you are corroding its beauty just foryour matter of concerns.©chaotic_phrases
