The truth in the lies

When my mum kicked me out

Just a few weeks ago

I had no one to turn too 

I had nowhere to go 

So I stayed at Rebecca's 

And too me she said 

Justine would have put 

A roof over your head 

And something inside me 

Made me start to remember 

I've lied to myself 

About the truth of September 

Because, yes justine left me 

And turned a new page 

And after, I w...

The finish line

It's happened, it really has 

I swear what I say is true 

I've never been more relieved

My god, I'm over you

My darling you are a burning fire

Please never let anybody 

Make you loose that strong desire

When they climb inside your body 

My darling you're the spotlight 

Don't let a man take the shine away

You can put up a strong fight 

Stand tall, and stay that way 

My darling, you're the main part

In this play that we call life

Don't you go back to the start 

Turn your ba...

I am a lion and I am a queen 

I write my own pages 

I set my own scene.

I am a warrior, the battles I win 

I am no angel, my life's full of sin 

I'm not unshakable

My hearts not unbreakable 

I have gold in my soul I've been told 

I am a fighter, my heart is a lighter

To show me my way when I'm old

Yes I am sensitive, I'm usually tentative

My decisions are never pla...

It happened once again last night 

While at my my boyfriends place, 

I passed out on the floor 

Colour drained from my face

The ambulance came quickly

While I laid there on my back 

And in the hospital I could feel

Another panic attack

As the nurses put my drip in 

And struggled to take blood

I just sat there sobbing silently 

My friends knew that I would 

The n...

I can't shake this feeling

It's all very surreal 

There aren't enough words

To describe how I feel 

A friendship was lost 

A friendship sublime 

I hate her and miss her

All at the same time

A winters tale

The coldest winter I've endured

Has shown my colours true

The coldest winter without a friend

The coldest without you 

My mind feels like a winter storm

Because I can't see a thing 

The pain of not talking to you

Feels like winters cold sting 

I walk along the once black path

That is now paved with white

The cold sinks beneath my skin

Like 2 loved ones in a fight

Dreamless sleep

I can't even sleep

Because you invade it 

I thought I'd got past this

I thought that I'd made it

I'm sick of the thought of you 

You're there when I close my eyes 

Despite what I do 

Despite how I've tried 

I want them to leave my mind

The memories I keep

So I'm praying for, pleading for 

Just one dreamless sleep

Broken glass

Does she know you cheat on girls in bars when you go out alone

Does she know the real reason behind why you hide your phone

Does she know about your insta ,all the porn that you follow? 

Does she honestly believe the words "we'll talk about it tomorrow"

Does she lay at home like I did wondering why she feel so small

Does she hold the phone after arguing, asking why you never call

I've been in love before

I won't pretend it wasn't true 

But there was a flaw with him

His flaw was, he wasn't you 

You save my life everyday 

And you don't even know it 

You've made me a better person 

You've made me a better poet 

I thought I had love figured out 

Until you came along 

And now every day with you

My life feels like a song

Just because

Just because I'm not crying 

Doesn't mean that I'm not sad

Just because I'm smiling 

Doesn't mean that I am glad 

Just because I am looking 

Doesn't mean that I can see

Just because I'm still here

Doesn't mean I want to be 

Just because I laughed 

Doesn't mean that I'm ok

Just because I'm busy

Doesn't make it go away 

Just because I'm strong 

Doesn't mean it'...

Rarest gold

Rebeca I want to thank you 

For being kind, for being there 

For being brave,for being honest 

For showing me you really care

Rebecca I want to thank you 

For never once leaving my side 

For always answering my questions

For helping me ride out the tide

Rebecca I want to thank you 

For never giving up on me 

For listening to my dramas 

For being the one to make me ...

In rhyme

Yes my poems are being heard 

By many readers everywhere

I hope you're not upset by this 

But why would you? You don't care 

How on earth can you be mad 

All because I've called you out 

You know my poems tell the truth 

I know you know, no doubt 

If you're reading these now

Which you probably are 

Then I hope that you can see

I've got better since September

There's something really funny

And ironic about you 

When you tell your friends about 

How I act and what I do 

Like telling people I am crazy 

That I lied about it all 

You don't mention I was there

Every time that you would fall

You've told people that I lie

Told them I've made you cry 

You fail to mention the goodbye

And that you never told me why 

So I just ...
