I didn’t know I loved

Posted: April 29, 2016 by T_K in TaylorK, Uncategorized

I didn’t know

I loved cigarette smoke until her flame went out

Walking into her empty house missing the smoke blow in my face

Entering my lungs, knowing mamalws home

I didn’t know

I loved fighting

Until I realized that’s how you know someone loves you

To fight with and for you no matter how hard you make it

I didn’t know

I loved being judged

Until being judged pushed me harder to realize I don’t care about others opinions

I don’t want or need acceptance to non needed people

I didn’t know

I loved hospitals

Until that one night when my mamawl was saved for one more tomorrow

Until she was able to breath one more time

I didn’t know

I loved books

Until I read so many I felt consumed in them

Abandoned in this world when the final chapter ended

I didn’t know

I loved myself

Until I seen that everything and everyone that I do love,

Makes me who I am

Until I see my home in me

My mamalws laugh, my aunts eyes, my sisters strength, my great mamawls courage and my mothers smile

I didn’t know

Shadows

They follow me 

lurking around until they’re so close they almost grab me

I asked “Who are you?” 

They answer 

” We are you. Who you are, who you want to be, and who you were” 

I stop at them and gaze 

Wonder fills up within my soul

Making me reach up and letting them lure me in

Consume me, until I’m nothing but a black orb

These shadows are my answer and I’m not waiting for the truth 

They open in a wide square and as I step in they say “Welcome”

If you honestly think

If you really believe I’m aligned with heroes,

You’re wrong.

If you truly assume I’m mixing with the scum,

You’re sorely mistaken.

If you actually think I’ll fight for  what’s ‘right’,

You’ll make me laugh.

If you honestly think I’ll leave you behind,

Oh look, you earned a point.

Lost?

You don’t know what you have until you lose it.

 

This has meaning.

 

But….

 

What if you already know what you have before you lose it?

 

Knowing where their path will take them….

 

That’s what kills you on the inside.

 

Would you prefer not to know?

 

Or would you want to know and be forced to live knowing?

 

Whether it be good or bad..

My Dark Side

Posted: April 25, 2016 by alexisp21 in AlexisP, Uncategorized

There’s a place within me that no one ever sees

The dark side that doesn’t try to please

I keep it hidden under lock and key

That way nothing can ever get to me

I stress, get angry, and feel pain

But I hide for other people’s gain

So I’ll put on a smile and flash a brave face

Yet nobody knows how horrible my case

He had brown eyes,

not like the black brown,

not the brown that you just discard.

But, the kind of brown you look really hard to find.

He had beautiful eyes,

long brown hair,

that hair slicked back into a bun.

A little bit of scruff,

 a pretty white smile.

We talked, and he got uncomfortably close.

I was okay with it.

He talked to me like he knew me,

and seeing as we just met I was fascinated.

I knew it wouldn’t last long,

but his childlike smile made me want to never leave.

At the moment I had him and nothing else,

and now he’s gone.

And I’ll never see him again.

And now everything aches for him,

and everything begs for him.

Breathe

If I stop breathing
I will give my air to you
So you’ll keep living

I never want to loose you
So I’ll give my life away so you’ll be happy
Spend it well
Think about me every now and then

If I die today I’ll always be with you
Never too far
Just breathe in and then you’ll find me

I’m with you
