Nay, Nay, Nay!



I shut my eyes and dare to hope
That maybe today is the day
That the shadows will let me cope
I hear them whisper, “nay, nay, nay.”

Ignoring, i squeeze my eyes shut
Try to picture; birds, peace, blue sky,
Muff my ears with a thick hat
But sadly, i still see myself die.

A rustling under my small bed
That sounds like a sick voice dying
Makes me jump and hit my big head,
Suddenly, i can’t stop crying.

I flip my light switch on, nothing.
I try to reach for my phone, nowhere.
I feel my leg caught by something
My fear i can not bear.

Screaming, i cry for help out loud
As my blankets come falling down.
I can’t say why i made no sound
But till date, i never left town.

I can’t drown my demons



I can’t drown my demons
They know how to swim.
They lurk in the shadows
To the very core of my soul.

It’s dark inside
And I’m drowning with each breath,
I don’t want you to love me
I just want you to save me.

I’m a girl made of darkness
No light within,
But you can’t see my sadness
Nor the lie that I’m living.

Maybe I don’t want to be rescued
Or better yet to be loved,
Because the only love I know
Is the pain of the life I own.

Beautifully broken



She broke a little each day, leaving the pieces with everyone she met

She broke so quietly, the pieces

Never making a sound, as they fell on the floor

Leaving parts of herself behind, trailing in her wake

Nobody even knew she was broken

But you knew, didn’t you?

The moment you looked into her eyes, so sad and haunted

You knew how beautifully broken she was

You knew, for you were broken too

Instead of gluing her pieces together, you seeped

Into her soul, until your jagged edges

Fit perfectly with hers, and together you became whole

She was beautifully broken, and so were you.

I Tried So Hard


I tried so hard, i tried my best
I gave you my all, and now there’s nothig left.
You stole my heart then tore it in two
Now am falling apart, and don’t know what to do.

Divided by decisions, burned by fire
Confused by your words, tempted by desire.
I’m living in the present
My mind is in the past,
Not knowing what i’ll loose
Not knowing what will last.

Blinded by fear, drownig in doubt
Straggling to be free, looking for a way out.
