It’s hard to look at pictures of me from high school
You’re in all of the stories
The prom after-party, beside me in chorus
And now we don’t speak.
But if you called
I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up the phone
Drive anywhere you needed me
But we don’t need each other anymore, do we?
You could say that I missed too much
You and he are no longer together
You were so many ...

My dad gave me a pair of glasses when I was about 5
It confused me a little
He said, “This is the only thing you’ll ever need.”
“This will keep you as my little girl,” he said
He put it on and looked at me with a smile
With a warm one, I could see he liked it this way
I wondered back then if the warmth would cool if I took it off
but I didn’t want to find out so soon

I’ve come to the end of my days
My little short fuse of a time is to fly
stopped searching for the cave in which it lays
all my sorrows, where the last tears are drawn from
where all the pictures of the past have lost their smile
where the black ink has started to dry
It is but a scissor I need to cut off this red
To let it breathe with a new breath so fresh

The wind has flown and the pieces of sand are in the night sky
The moon has left and the sun’s waiting for her turn to arrive
The frog has jumped from leaf to leaf and has left ripples nearby
For these ripples have seamlessly blended that I don’t remember
I don’t remember from where these red roses have become mine
I have watched by the years as if they were places on a map...

She smiled from the window sill,
A heart so weighed by sorrow.
She admired the night with onyx eyes,
Ever waiting for tomorrow.
She sung upon the sill so still,
Gazing from star to star.
And wasted wishes every night,
For those who lived so far.
Ever selfless yet wanting more,
She’d wish upon their health and love.
She’d live for hope like never before,
For the voices up above.

In the darkest times, there is always a light,
Someone who will hold you, or just sit with you,
when you are feeling doubt.
Maybe it's a person? Or maybe it's a dog? who looks at you with non-judging unconditional love,
and makes you know everything will be alright!
That makes you put on your armour and continue to fight,
Because warriors might lose battles and even have scars,...

Do you ever just have tears fall down your eyes?
You have a memory suddenly flash and your heart begins to beat fast and before you know it you're back in the past
You are wondering what did you do wrong to deserve all the pain from the one you loved
You have done everything you can think of to get over the hurt
You want more than anything to forget her voice, her hugs, her eyes, th...

When you looked me in the eyes, I wanted to feel your love
To feel the love that you said, was gone
I wanted to believe with all my heart that you would come back...
I wanted to believe that I could be enough
I wanted to believe that we could grow together but the truth is, it was all an illusion created by a stubborn heart,
Instead, I let you close and you hurt me, broke me, and ra...

Today I sit here in my car, trying to hold back tears, trying to stay strong
Teach your students colors,shapes, letters, numbers, teach them about life, and now keep them safe from guns
Today I sit here in my car, trying to hold back tears, trying to stay strong, remember you are a teacher
Teach your students to not be afraid, yet in your heart you know the world is again...

My audience, my reason?
A steering wheel, my own fault.
It will not hear, neither will I.
Why bother conveying this?
You must know.
Yet you will never hear.
Solace in release.
Distraught in the moment thereafter.

I used to believe that it was me.
That I was broken.
I used to believe that I was the reason you left; that I was too dark to be loved.
That I deserved to be left behind.
I used to believe it was me!
I looked in the mirror everyday and I cried praying to God that he fix me.
Thinking that there was something wrong.
Praying to God that he would make me worthy of your love.

I am auburn.
I am Grey.
I am unique.
Flat pieces; four points
Innies and lock
Without me, you are not complete
With me, we are replete
A needle in the haystack
