    Pain In These Eyes

    When you look into someone's eyes, you can see everything. You see emotions and their journey. Their heartbreaks and their fears. Their memories, maybe even eternity. Now, look into my eyes, And tell me what you see. Can you see the darkness, That lives deep within me? Can you...

    Mosaic

    Broken pieces, shattered all around We heard the sound, when it all hit the ground Torn pages, in the book of my life In the pain and strife, seems like a losing fight Empty spaces, covered in clutter My heart skips paces, and my words come in stutters I see the places, where the...

    gentle touch really just souls stirring in the air Trying to send a message Or comfort your soul Breeze blocks and old clocks Is time running out?

    The Mask

    I’m great, fine, spectacular. In a way I relish every night, and I live every day. I live, I laugh, I write, I sing, I wonder what the new days will bring. Then I get home, and I take off the mask. The day, an almost impossible task, Is finally over, and so I lay Down, and wait...

    You were inhumed suspended in space surrounded

    MY FATHER’S HANDS My father’s hands,

    were strong and firm, But also rough as well. He used them for the work he did, And you could always tell. You could see the calluses, And all the scars and pain. On his shirt you could also see, Where blood had left a stain. His work was hard and took its toll, He knew...

    “Play something”,

    you said looking anywhere but eye to eye feigning a casualness to the request. The truth was it wasn’t casual The quiet seemed almost to make the walls fall away Giving too much running room to fears about ourselves grown large and feral and rageful at their entrapment...

    You remind me of silence.

    The silence of when I was waiting to see my therapist, scared out of my mind, hiding the burns I left on my skin with the sleeves of my hoodie, thinking 'I shouldn't be here'. The silence between my mom and I when I came out to her, wanting to run away and feeling my eyes...

    I had a dream, which was not all a dream.

    The bright sun was extinguish'd, and the stars Did wander darkling in the eternal space, Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air; Morn came and went—and came, and brought no day, And men forgot their passions in the dread Of this...

    The sky is dark and hazy.

    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...
