Up Here (inspired by Demi Levato, Skyscraper)

entry picture

Stood up here on the top of the

place I never thought I'd get to.

With a certainty and grace I

never thought I'd feel running

down through me to the base

of my legs and through my feet

and down through every floor.

Somewhere along the line I 

stopped scraping the barrel and

started climbing up and falling

down and climbing up and

overcoming the well of emotions

You

I want to get out of me

and into you.

The fact that this poem

starts with "I"

speaks volumes.

How are you today?

I deserve better

I deserve better

you know

than this.

That look 

or lack of it

was the last straw.

Funny dance

Funny dance funny dance

I piroutte and point and prance

so fancy free to make you laugh

and giggle, chuckle, snort at me

and my funny dance, crazy stance

to not give glib and glum a chance.

Swallow

Swallow

I swallow it down for you.

Swallow

Will you swallow it down for me?

So we can both

finally be free.

I Won't Apologise

I won't apologise

for the lies you tell yourself

and the bullshit you believe

and try to heave all over me

and the self respect

I've worked so hard for.

I won't apologise -

even when your cries whine

and false advertise what

you are really about. And

you can scream and shout

until every mountain from

here to kingdom come 

crumbles for all I care.

I know wh...

Sneaky fuckers

Coming in through the backdoor

with fake makeshift keys

you left me uneasy.

 

In a house thats my home

that I've worked hard for

feeling safe no more.

 

It's the lingering you left

sneaky fuckers.

 

Upping the security wont remove it,

will be expensive and a chore -

and I shouldn't have to but

 

Such are the times.

Anchor

We each opened wounds

that had festered and never

been dressed. We held

each other in the torrent

and the thick of it - like an

anchor. And when it passed

so did we too. Splitting;

metal wrenched and hardened. 

'Til drifting along different 

equators we let down in 

continents apart. Without

a piece of our hearts.

Endings

Endings affect.

Not just the person deciding 

on or coming to the end. It can

stir up all sorts in those perhaps 

encountering many ends or 

coming to a close. But you can't 

pretend or not end an end just to 

try and bend their endingness 

into something other, or to mend

their feelings. Though I wish I could, 

when this ending to me feels good.

Kaleidoscopic

What if there's nothing wrong with either of us,

just playing out patterns.

 

What if there's nothing wrong with either of us,

just playing out patterns.

 

Playing out patterns.

Playing out patterns.

 

Kaleidoscopic.

Kaleidoscopic.

I feel you

People make me doubt you.

People make me doubt you.

People make me doubt you

but I feel you.

 

People make me doubt you.

People make me doubt you.

People make me doubt you

but I feel you.

 

And I know that I can't find a reason

and I know that I can't comprehend

and I know that I can't make much sense

with my mind.

 

Though I love

and I find

and I...

Transition

I'm bored of my own voice.
