roots

i realized that

once you let the flower die

you can water it all you want 

but it won’t come back to life

the petals fall 

and lose their color

but the roots are always there.

i’m home

i ripped the flowers from the ground 

and watched them grow brown 

i sucked the beauty out all by myself 

and i tried to pretend that 

the petals didn’t choke me 

i tried to walk away 

but the roots tripped me. 

they grabbed me by the ankle 

and dragged me underground 

i realized the beauty was there all along 

- i never stopped loving you.

you'll put up a fight. 

because you finally see, 

this life is worth livin

you are the best friend 

that i have been given

us

it's not happening, i use to believe you loved me and that the universe was keeping us apart. 
but the truth is you had your choice and i always come short. 
you keep me intrigued, believing that one day we'll get our chance. 
but you only love the way i always come running back to you and melt in your hands. 
i'm frightened ill miss my chance, but i need to move on. 
this love is pain and i ...

a story like this

I know you are hurting

I know you feel alone and that 

applying more pain is the only feeling 

that brings somewhat of meaning

to yourself. 

But I promise you, 

you will smile again

you will enjoy the little things

for everything that they are

and when you reach the point 

when you dont know if you 

should even be healing

or if you should stay down this dark roa...

untitled

good for you 

and good for me 

but we both know 

what's meant to be.

buried alove, buried alive

i love you 
however i can never say 
the right words for you to know that. 
i'd hate to realize
that you don't feel the same 
so here is my best defense.
i will save us both
some nights and some days 
of feeling all alone. 
i put my love for you 
in this box 
and bury it forever. 
i hope you never discover it

the days move on 

slower than ever

but surely

im getting better

i no longer hear your voice

in my empty head

i'm starting to see happiness instead

its the little things

that take the edge off 

of the scar of what we used to be
