Dissolve

I had to cut off family,
simply to keep my sanity.
They judge me hard, but that’s okay,
they could not understand my ways.

I tried my best to just fit in,
but felt that I could never win.
When I belonged, they made it wrong,
and felt these actions made them strong.

I had to cut off family,
to spare myself from agony.
I used to think we were complete,
until their hearts turned to concrete.

They came to visit once or twice,
I thought reunions were quite nice.
Soon came to see, it was intrigue,
that brought them here carrying deceit.


I had to cut off family,
to make my life skip happily.
Forming my own, building a home,
real love that is not made of foam.

They taught me to decipher clues,
so I could teach mine to be true.
Show them to try, no hidden lies,
and how to love from deep inside.

I had to cut off fantasy
to make room for reality.
A peaceful life, a new design
with a full love that feels divine

Contrary

The one meant to love me,
had hate for me too.
Swaying what I see,

controlling my views.

Have you ever heard words,
that felt like a punch?


The energy sprayed,
all covered with blades,

cutting through my heart,
splitting me apart,
shooting like a gun,
leaves me feeling stunned.


Bruise into my mind,

biting deep inside,
chewing at my pride
,
actions undefined,
a fingerless touch
,
delivers the punch.

Then hold me so sweet,
offer many treats,
sweep me off my feet,
I flow like the breeze
.

Have you ever heard words
meant to feel like love?


The words I now hear,
erase all my fears.

all sent from above,
fly in like a dove,
they flutter inside,
bring in butterflies.


They give me a hug,
that fits like a glove,
then sing in my ears,
my eyes fill with tears,
my hopes start to fly,
reaching past the sky.

I land on both feet,
words fall on their knees,
seeking no amends,
knowing this now ends
.

The knots all untie,
I say my good byes
.
