    Her Death Brought Her Life

    She cries each night,Never does she show her pain,Always hiding her face,How long can she stay strong?How many more days must she play along,Raw emotion in her eyes,Fear crawling up her spine as she wipes the tears,Looking down at her scars,Looking at her reflection as she hides...

    Rain on the forecast,

    they say, rain for a months or more I saw you in her smile, while I was crying on the floor Did I give up the liquor? -- my love, every time you call... They say I'm looking sicker, they never knew me much at all.

    “I felt a pulling in my chest

    and a deep sorrow in my bones at the mere thought of losing him. I desperately asked the universe what this feeling meant. She gently responded, “Oh my dear child, you are in love.” — Alyssa Marie (Alyssasmusings on IG)

    Threads Of Ourselves

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    A flock of birds fly away,

    it's the start of a new day, a glass is broken, no words are spoken, the man stands and strives, starring at the knives, the memory of you rests inside, they had only cried, the sorrow remains and the shadows strength gains, no light to be seen, wishing it was all just a dream...

    If I could I would go back.

    Stay locked in time in one moment, the beautiful shine, hold it and sit back proud. Cause look at me now. Every days a struggle to fight the ugliness that clings deep. It's stings to peak and see the hatred that rapes me and keeps me weak. The moments I let go and pass on flat...
