down

she is an enigma

wrapped in the

most opaque cloth

afraid to let it fall

to the cold hard ground

where her tears live

staining the concrete

attempting to figure out

where she should be

next.

the mind is the most

intriguing aspect of

any human to exist

and i think that’s why

it’s so easy for me to

want to dig into each

one separately

and fully.

perhaps i will be close

to figuring out

the state of humanity.

open door

looking someone in the eye

is the hardest task for me

because the eyes expose

what the soul holds

and the moment you look

into its holding cell

the darkness will rise

dust will spread in the air

and you’ll know.

you’ll know.

i want to know that

you’re home safe

and tucked into

your soft bed

with the cold side

of the pillow

digesting the day’s thoughts.

i’ll be waiting to hear them

to know them

four

this chapter is ending

and my anxious heart

is not ready for the

next one to begin

i wish i was

more willing to move

forward

to move beyond

to move past

these four years

of experiences

 

i will hold this

close to my heart.

dear ,

you may not listen to these words

and turn away from what i say

but you, my dear, give too much credit

to your past experiences

and you breathe life into circumstances

that deserve the grave.

your heart is empty and you are broken

but you, my dear, give too much credit

to she who broke your heart

leading to the broken mindset that you carry

and you breathe life into people

that don’t deserve you.

i am pleading that you move on

because i am here and i will give you love

in ways most people will not.

you may not listen to these words

and turn away from what i say

but you, my dear, are a part of this world

my world

and i want you to prosper

here.
