imprisoned

an internalized war of
ugly words and bitter imagination,
poured out across the skins and robes
worn by others – we favor our pitiful anger
without thinking twice of internalized battles
within the hearts and minds of others –
but they don’t even bother as well,
which is why
we are deadlocked in our
own judgmental prison cells

nightingale heartache

heartbreak, leave me.
i don’t want others to read
sad stories written across my eyes
i don’t desire a tired heart anymore,
leave me to let me rest until the sunrise.
i don’t want others to think
the worst of me when i strive
to believe i am blessed,
in the darkest of days and
hardest of nights, heartbreak –
depart from me, take your flight —
mend yourself among the stars,
heartbreak, you were always
worth the fight

unfolding

seek out the lackluster and you’ll
never be disappointed, but seek
out disappointment and you’ll
never be satisfied, but the best of
all is to live without limitations –
stepping outside boundaries to
be greeted with moments beyond
expectation – grief, failure, happiness,
success – anything could unfold –
truth be told, if you live boldly
all that is lackluster will be made of gold

cut-out dolls

my shadow grows long behind me
i walk with a different set of graces
unlike the other pretty faces but
truth be told, it’s not about how i
measure myself against others in
their lace and jewels – to judge
others the way i desire not to be judged
just makes me a hypocritical fool

truly

it’s not that demons deny truth
they believe in it all along, they
just want you to sing a different song
so they can relish in you being wrong

shy

your shy smile was made of
soft sunlight and warm air
touching the day in a tender way
saying, i’m here and i care

sugared

the rolling of the wind
unwinds clouds
stretching them into
powdery lines across the sky,
the sun — what a sour lemon —
it blinds us, our eyes
pucker and squint close
turning the insides of our eyelids
a bright candy cane red and white
