Life’s Story

Posted: June 10, 2015 by alyssamarcum12 in AlyssaM

Today is the day that I make a change.

It’s time to look at my life’s story and turn the page.

Everyday is a day to start brand new.

I ask myself, what am I going to do?

Life is like a story.

Everyday is a page,

Every year is a chapter.

It is up to us to write and change our stories.

We should try to do one thing a day that’s memorable.

So that way when we write a few chapters,

We can create a book that is worth re-reading.

Forever is a complex word.

Our minds cannot comprehend Forever.

To the world, there is a beginning and an end.

Nothing seems to last Forever.

Whether it is consumed in a flaming fire,

Drowned in a deep blue sea of memories,

Whether it is cast out like a fishing pole,

Or flies away in the chill of an autumn morning.


But some things do last Forever.

Our love is the fire that engulfs all desire.

You swept me off my feet when I was sinking in the sand.

You hooked me as soon as we met,

And you taught me that home is where the heart is.

Our love is what last Forever.


I Love You The Orangest

I love you the Orangest.

I love you like the sunset on the horizon,

Right before the moon and the stars replace the bright, yellow sun with shimmering sparkles.

I love you like a dimming fire

You keep my path lit, but never burn me.

Orange is bright, happy, and funny

That is what I like about you.

You are the colors red and yellow.

You blossomed from the changing leaves in the fall to a garden of Roses, Dandy Lions, and Tiger Lilies in the spring.

When I first met you, you were the monarch butterfly dancing in my stomach.

Your kisses gave me energy.

Like a fire, your hugs protected me and gave me warmth.

You’re like a cheetah, you’re always fast to help me.

You have the eye of a tiger; you’re strong and protective.

You told me that before you were yellow,

Happy, but always looking for something to make you complete.

Our love is full of red passion.

With me, you are the orangest.

Fade to Black

Sometimes we fade to Black

Some are like the ink in a pen,

Using ourselves until there are small traces of our existence left.

Some people give so much that they are left with only kindness.

While the people who take get everything with lies and deception.

Nothing is fair..

Nothing will be left..

Except Color.

The people who give, give all but Color.

When the world devolves in the Blackness,

The kind people will merge together to create White.

They are the light to the people who have faded to Black. 

I Am What I Am

Posted: March 18, 2015 by alyssamarcum12 in AlyssaM

I am what I am

I am sparkles shinning as bright as a shooting star

I am what I am

I am a little too quiet and a little too loud

I am full of confidence hidden behind the shell of my own skin

I am what I am

I am graceful behind my clumsy way


I want to be perfect, but I don’t want to try

Because if you have to try to be perfect then you aren’t.


I am what I am

I want to show people who I really am

I have a creative side that wants to break through

I am loving to the fullest extent

I am what I am

I have wishes bigger than the stars can hold

I have dreams that I will make a reality

I am who I am

I guess I am perfect, just because I am me…

I am what I am.

I Just Want to Let You Know

Posted: March 18, 2015 by alyssamarcum12 in AlyssaM

I just want to let you know that …

                                                             I  Love You

That I never stop thinking about you

That you’re in my dreams


I just want to let you know that…

I care even when I say I don’t

That I get loud to get your attention

That I draw to hear you say it looks great!


I just want to let you know..

That I am selfish,

                               You’re mine and only mine

That I am protective,

                               I don’t want anything to happen to you


I just want to let you know that…

I know you love me with all of my faults,

And that’s all I need to know.

It was so sudden,

Like a lightning bolt flew out of the sky

And shocked me with a thousand volts of power


My breath was taken

My heart stopped beating

I couldn’t move

I couldn’t hear

The only thing I heard were thoughts running through my mind


Could I do this?

Could I take this big risk,

To let my heart fall into the hands of another?


What if at a second in time,

The world stopped turning,

And my heart flew out of his grasp

To become shattered pieces on the

Cold ground of this earth


This is when I have to let my heart start speaking…

If I don’t take this chance then my heart will be broken anyways


This is when I knew what I had to do

Then I heard myself say…

I Love You Too.
