to a friend, It’s a shoulder to cry on
and a pinky swear
To family, it’s a reminder that you’re still there.
To a lover, it’s a promise you mean to keep forever in your heart.
to me, it’s everything.
Quiet and emotionless, yet your eyes tell a story. They’re full of everything you’ve ever felt, everything you’ve ever seen. Every lost love. You hold back the tears, for fear of losing those little treasures. Because what was once pain is now your silent agony. Holding on to broken memories, like shards of glass that cut and sting. You can’t let go, can’t feel the pain of what’s on the other side. You’re just a child, too afraid.
the trees sway in the cold, cold breeze
and the raindrops pierce the the graceful wind
you stop for a moment and feel the earth
all around you, it seems to breathe.
the moon settles among the stars
that tickle the sky with sparkling light
the shadows cast upon the grass
and hidden light finds a place to stay
the earth cradles you in her arms
it’s beauty lulls you to a silent sleep
while the rivers run and the waters fall
and the earth rotates once more
do you feel the rage?
the fire that burns your soul?
because i feel it, deep down
it’s eating my soul right in front of me
It’s hurting me
It’s scaring me
I wouldn’t hurt anyone, but
It’s killing me
she doesn’t love you
and she knows it hurts
He abandoned you
and he knows it hurts
she spits the names
and she doesn’t care
he watches and laughs
and he doesn’t care
she’s your mom
he’s your dad
and they know it hurts
but they just don’t care
not smart enough for her
never good enough for him
and even though it hurts
you just don’t care
Is my heart beating?
Or has it stopped?
Because i can’t tell with your arms around me.
But it doesn’t matter
As long as I’m there
Because when I’m with you
I forget my fears
Because they no longer exist
Only with you…
