Enough

She takes your lies,
gulps them like wine,
laughs till she cries,
drawing the line.

She knows you well,
words turn to dust,
love tripped and fell,
into disgust.

She visits you,
within her head,
dreams that came true,
are now all dead.

She tries to smile,
while hurt inside,
thoughts run hostile,
heart conquers mind.

She walks away,
opposite path,
silently prays,
time cures scorned wraths.

She turns around,
just one last time,
nothing is found,
fate feels sublime.

Speak Up

Interweave your thoughts with mine,
dreams and visions are combined,
check it twice to redefine,
to help our wishes align.

Convinced that hopes are the same,
knowing that I lost my aim,
feeling just a bit of shame,
loosing my voice, mind, and name.

Love you more than I do me,
only know the sights you see,
your hands hold every last key,
dictating all that will be.

Alter views to clear my sight,
rest my eyes and see the light,
grasp emotions that feel right,
so that my heart can feel bright.

Speak up for what I believe,
sense details my mind perceives,
aware of plans I conceive,
instantly feeling relieved.

Hold your hand as love grows strong,
let tomorrow come along,
souls unite and sing a song,
both our fantasies belong.

Honestly

Looking for excuses,
excuses for your lies.
Lies often reduces,
reduces all strong ties.

Ties bring our hearts closer,
closer every night.
Nights provide exposure,
exposure to pure light.

Light shines through your spirit,
spirit sparks the soul.
Soul without a limit,
limitless and whole.

Whole and fully complete,
complete true self brings love,
love sincerely released,
released from up above.

Contagious Glee

Will play the fool
to see you smirk.
Try to look cool,
act like a jerk.
Skip days of school,
call out from work.
Break petty rules,
create new quirks.

Will jump through hoops,
to make you smile.
Entertain groups,
resolve all trials.
Run endless loops,
infinite miles.
Serve ice cream scoops,
desserts will pile.

Will go great lengths
for your chuckle.
Prove such great strength,
crack my knuckles.
Fake my own death
without struggle.
Hold a deep breath
till I buckle.

Will do most things
to make you laugh.
Jump through flame rings,
on your behalf.
Let loud jokes fling,
humorous craft.
Make night stars bling,
let joys attach.

Move on

Cut the strings,
feel the sting,
sadness pings,
accept dings.
Heart breaks fling,
pop smoke rings,
stories sing,
till tales wring.
Fly and swing,
unfold wings,
let life bring,
happy things.
Lights will bling,
jump and spring,
grasp the sling,
love will cling.

So long

What used to be
lives in your eyes,
a tarnished key
holds all demise.
Yesterdays dream
lets out a sigh,
a silent scream
mutes inner cries.

Blink away tears
that smudge all gain,
erase old fears
that carry pain.
Cover both ears
feeling insane,
feel sorrow near
on this torn lane.

A time that passed
new lessons learned,
heartbeats are slashed
emotions burned.
Wishes have crashed
intentions turned,
forgiveness splashed
true love is earned.

Grateful for times
that brought me light,
pushed my steep climbs
warmed up my nights.
Secured my prime
made all wrongs right,
memories chime
my soul shines bright.

Give and Take

I come to you with opened arms,
to keep you safe from any harm.
I shield your heart with my heartbeat,
and fill your lungs with air I breathe.
I close my eyes give yours a rest,
then run through time and pass all tests.
I run in place, wait while you crawl,
to keep my pace and catch your falls.

We stay in place to catch our falls,
and always run we never crawl.
We get straight A’s on all our tests,
so we can laugh till we need rest.
We play on earth and watch her breathe,
dance to the sound of her heartbeat.
We are both safe away from harm,
emitting light with opened arms.

Expressed

Silence is hidden,
inside of your eyes.
Lips full of answers
smothered with wise lies.

All truths are revealed
exposed by your eyes.
Back-peddling words
disclosed by surprise.

Awkward discomfort
expressed in your eyes.
No words are needed,
tears glue our demise.

Hopes have been ruined
as seen in your eyes,
you want one more win
yet despise the prize.

My unspoken words
scream loud in my eyes,
they say their farewells
with one breathless sigh.

Newfound intentions
live within my eyes.
Self-preservation
is my greatest tie.

Best wishes and love
shine from both our eyes,
mute words go unheard
our eyes say goodbye.

Honesty

Bloody words
escape my lips,
fly like birds
that fall and slip,
look absurd
but slowly trip
visions blurred,
until they flip.

Bled out sounds
possessed my tongue,
left my mouth,
fled from my lungs,
tilted ground,
vibrations rung,
sadness found
where all begun.

Bleeding tunes
ring in my ears,
my head swoons
expunging fears,
hope balloons
releasing tears,
heart cocoons
yet, feels so clear.

Blood filled songs,
finally healed,
curing wrongs,
dropping the shield,
thoughts prolonged
but now revealed,
truth belongs
to what feels real.
