    Remembering your birthday

    I wish you were here today
    even for just a little while
    so I could say Happy Birthday
    and see your beautiful smile.

    The only gifts today will be
    the gifts you left behind;
    The laughter, joy and happiness...
    precious memories...the best kind.

    Today I'll do my very best
    to try and find a happy place...
    struggling to hide my heavy heart
    and the tears on my face.

    I'll sit quietly and look at your picture
    thinking of you with love;
    hoping you're doing ok
    in Heaven up above.

    May the angels hold you close and
    sing you a happy song...
    and I'll be sending wishes to you
    today and all year long.

    You wanted my position but you didn't know what it required. You thought that laying in bed with him every night, taking cute pictures, flaunting him around and sexing him good was all it took. But what comes with that? When he leaves not knowing when he'll return, not knowing where he was or who he was with. Blowing his phone up back to back because deep down inside YOU know he'll never change not even for you. You know the same way you get him is the same way you'll lose him. You thought I was stupid and clueless about you because I didn't press it like you do, but in actuality, I knew I wasn't strong enough to walk away yet so I "let him cheat in peace" and when I finally walked away you thought you won. You felt rewarded because you ruined what we had. When the truth is, I got the strength to love myself more than he'll ever love either one of us. I felt like it was your turn to have that headache, and it was your turn to experience the side that every girl thinks she wants, until she actually gets it. Yes it was hard for you on the outside looking in to see him love me, because of greed and envy, but it's gonna be even harder for you to THINK he loves you and then you realize you're just me all over again

    I feel like the hardest part of going through trauma is never being able to tell people the full extent of what happened because nobody wants to know the full details if any. So you are left with secrets and scars forever and no one truly knows the full extent of how badly you've been hurt. You dont want to make people upset or angry but you desperately need someone to really understand. It's a really lonely place to be

    I feel like I'm screaming as loud as I can
    But you still can't hear me,
    Sadly, you never will

    Society has stopped listening

    I can't breathe

    Society has stopped listening

    Sir, I can't breathe

    Society has stopped listening

    Mama, I can't breathe

    Society has stopped listening
    We have lost our way
    Whether it's race, or color
    Religion or creed
    Sexual orientation or gender
    It doesn't change how we bleed
    Society has stopped listening
    We are all humans
    We need to teach our children well
    To show compassion
    To show patience
    To show tolerance
    Society has stopped listening
    Cries fall on deaf ears
    only to make the evening news
    Hatred is inherited
    It is not a birthright
    Indifference is not equality
    Society has stopped listening
    Remember you are not alone
    We try and stand united
    While the masses assign hyphens to us all
    Division is meant for one thing
    To cause a crumble
    To cause a fall

    Society has stopped listening

    I can't breathe

    Society has stopped listening

    Sir, I can't breathe

    Society has stopped listening

    Mama, I can't breathe

    I'm sitting here everyday with this heaviness in my heart that wont go away. Losing you unleashed all the pain of past loses that I harbored away for so long. I used to ask myself how many heartbreaks can one heart take? Well now I know, losing you was the final break that shattered my heart completely. No matter what I do, I just don't feel whole anymore. So much has been taken from me in life but I'd always been good at hiding and ignoring the pain; now there's just to much, to much to hide, to much to ignore. I feel the sadness of every loss slowly consume me, like the darkness consuming the night sky, Lost in the memories of everything I've lost, drowning in the thoughts of everything I still have lose; how does one get through the losses to come when your already completely broken

    Watching every one around you living the life you've always dreamed of
    Gets more and more heartbreaking with each passing year Knowing that the more time goes by the less likely you are to ever get what you want, Is a different kind of sadness
    I wouldn't expect you to understand

    I need to learn how to stop apologizing
    for saying what I feel

    That's like saying sorry for being real

    Battle of heart and mind

    Having the feeling something is off
    Yet never knowing if It's your intuition speaking
    Or the insecurities from past bullshit
    causing you to over think
