How do you know if time is being wasted?
Drifting so far away from the honesty that the honesty becomes a lie,
How do you know if it's what's meant to be, if im with you and he's not with me?
They say time you enjoy wasting, isn't wasted time,
But does that apply when you've got your enjoyment, and I've lost mine?
How do you know what's meant to be?
I'm with you, and he's no...

and all the painful memories,
they've changed the way I think,
changed what I believe.
And when I doubt,
when I think I'm all I need
when I hope the world can't see me,
there's safety in your voice
and a smile in your eyes.
How'd I wind up here?
With you by my side.
And when I can't explain,
when I lose my grip,
when I make excuses...

Friends of old, friends of new
Friends who want to help you
Friends of penny, friends of wealth
Friends who're ill, friends of health
Friends of knowledge, friends of wisdom
Friends who are your support system
Friends of youth, friends of age
Friends who free you from your cage
Friends of love, friends of mutual hate
Friends who are early, friends who're late
Friends who are near, friend...

He Is, My King
I am, His Queen
We are, A Team
In him I grew, in me he knew we could build a family. Strong, bold, and brazen he came in like a wrecking ball. Tearing down the walls of hopeless justice. We were created in the heart of God to love each other and serve a world full of hate. We are guided by our story and sheltered by the love of God.
A man I have yet to meet, but he hol...

I want a better life for my precious little boy
I want him to have a life that he can actually enjoy
In a town like this with limited prospects
The best that you can hope for is that life doesn't get to complex
And that you don't have to escape with
self destructionalised vibes
And that you can appreciate the beauty
in the ever changing tides
Life's not about finding ...

Good food side by side,
Poems two by two,
Just walk, walk my friend to the Joy,
From the darkness, walk now to your summer.
Hera disbelieving Zeus kicks
Him between the legs. He smiles
Surprised by joy
And my lover said to me
Walk to the door of joy
And well come me
Revisiting revenge underneath pie trucks
Like a rampant ground hog day
Funny and r...

It’s almost as if you’ve been
you can take a breath
without feeling yourself
Cement is no longer
running through your veins
slowing every movement,
because now it is only gravel.
Your head is now
not filled with buzzing static,
the distant sound of
electric storm clouds.
You are finally se...

the sound of nails on skin
the ripping of those barriers
between whats in you and whats out
the sound of beats on your head
the swelling of self-hatred and humility
forced on yourself by yourself\
cry at the sight and more at the sound
be flushed with the shame\
knowing you're not good enough
look up at the sky at night
run by yourself in the dark
the outside is so...

I want a smile
That appears unknowingly.
One that spreads across his face,
Like the sunset in the sky,
Every time he hears my name.
I want eyes
That won’t turn away
When I show my scars.
Ones that can see
Through the walls I put up.
I want a voice
That will support me
And encourage my dreams.
One that knows what words
Will bring me back to realit...
