Writer's blockOh words, my words, where have you gone?
I've searched both high and low:
My words are nowhere to be found
But why, I do not know.
So many things I want to say,
All bottled up inside;
But there is no relief today--
Oh words, why must you hide???
BipolarYour gentle gaze like razor blades
Both cut me to the core
The shadows hide the lines you've crossed
Yet still I'm craving more
You're never who you seem to be
I don't know who you are
One moment you're the one I know
The next so very far
This dream in which we used to live
Uncertain now and bleak
Breathtaking as the cloudbreak is
Still havoc storms do wreak
My wild nightmare never ends
I cannot seem to wake
I'm desperate to find escape
Before I finally break
It's not you it's me I say
As hollow as it rings
No longer can I weather this
High time to test my wings
The words fall like an icy rain
Chilling, sharp, but true
Yet though I try to end it here
I'm still falling for you
YouI search for you in every crowd
I long to see your face
Your presence is the cornerstone
That grounds me to this place
You're dancing through my dreams at night
My first thought when I wake
The angel on my shoulder sings
With every step I take
You know my secrets and my fears
You trust me with your own
My world falls in, I run to you
Somehow you feel like home
No safer place than with you near
I miss you when you're gone
So close we do not need to talk
Already know what's wrong
Lucidall this time she's seemed so near
her angel face you hold so dear
she'll find you in that darkest time
her eyes will speak sans reason, rhyme
in time you will remember things
of birds and bones and broken wings
of deadly secrets, shattered dreams
things left unsaid and silent screams
with open heart and open mind
stand in the rain and you will find
that healing lies in these things true
and to remember changes you
Chainedi see it in your eyes i see the fading of the light
i see it in your stance i see you're giving up the fight
it's not the end so don't you dare consider giving in
keep your chin up let it show this time they will not win
they cannot keep you down can't see that you're too strong to bend
they say that you are breaking but i say that wounds will mend
love can heal a broken heart and faith can form a shield
against the sharp and cutting words of those who'd see you yield
for they are wrong and we are strong enough to find the light
don't fear the darkness closing in i'll see you through this night
don't be afraid to come to me if you need help to stand
proud and strong you'll prove them wrong i offer you my hand
i will be there for you always have been always will
though they may say that no one loves you i will stay with you until
the end of time please listen close you mean the world to me
i cannot stand to see you chained please let me set you free

InvocationSpeak through me, Muse, and sing me the tale
Of that girl unskilled in the ways of the world--
The intrepid wanderer,
Seeking truth for years on end,
Oblivious to the dynamics around her
As others talk with their eyes and dance with their words.
Many the nights she's lain awake,
Living the hurts of her friends, powerless to help.
Trying to save the world
When she can't even save herself.
She wrote dark storms of words
And ascertained the deceptive nature of journals.
She lied to others and she lied to herself.
She learned that sharp words leave scars,
Struggling each day to open her eyes
And walk toward the light;
Yet despite her best intentions, sometimes she strayed:
But hands were there to guide her back to the path,
And hearts were there to share her pain.
Growing and changing and coming to see
That she didn't have to understand humanity to be human--
She doesn't have to earn love to be loved,
And angels can hide in the oddest of places.
Of these trials and tribulatio
CathieSalt-and-pepper hair contrasts sharply with the crisp, starched pillow;
bone-thin arms resemble bed rails--
tears in my arms, the morphine drip in your vein.
My inner rage refutes your calm acceptance.
You ask if we are waiting for you to die: no.
We are waiting for a miracle,
we are waiting for you to heal--
We are waiting for something that will not happen.
We are stretching for something that is out of reach.
We are holding onto our obsolete hopes, the small fragments of our lives
so closely, we cannot see the bigger picture
In a paradox, God is calling you clearly,
but we can't seem to hear His voice--
only the silence ringing in our ears
as the monitor stops
your breathing ceases
your face un-creases--
and, for the first time in years,
you run Home.
VacancyLife has kept going
Without your presence in it
On the outside
It all seems the same
But inside me
There is a vacancy
A room meant just for you
Letting my thoughts wander
They travel past your room
And I can only think
A single phrase
Tu me manques
I miss you
I WonderWill I ever tell you, I wonder,
How you make me feel?
It's doubtful at best
For I don't even know
Who you are
I may have clues
But do I really want to know?
Yes, of course I do
Just the thought of you
Passing through my mind
Fills my heart with joy
I want to dance with you
Sing with you
Let you in my heart
And hope you want the same
But I'm not sure
If I have the courage
To tell you
Or even figure out who you are
DreamThere he stands,
The man simply known as Dream.
He's different now, fallen from grace,
And risen back up to it.
He was a joyous man, but he was beaten,
Torn and scarred, starved and tormented.
How did he get past it all they question me.
I know the answer, only because I asked him myself.
This is what he said to me,
"You can only be broken so much,
Eventually they stop trying,
Then you take every scar,
Every fracture and shattered piece,
And turn them into strengths and advantages.
Since they can't hurt you anymore,
You have nothing left to fear."
He turned his tortured soul into flawlessness.
That is who he is now, a happy wounded soul,
A perfect little broken Dream.
Come Away, Come AwayCome away, come away
As I lazily lay
It was the last day in the month of May,
When it said come away, come away
Still I sit, never flit, out of wit
In my chair in the middle of nowhere
To go anywhere, I surely do care
But still I sit there, in the middle of nowhere
I can't find the strength
As I lie at full length
In this bed that I dread
But still it said,
From far far away,
Come away, come away
Like a daunting whisper, it taunts
Never leaving me, it haunts
To grant me needed ambition,
Or supply me with intuition
Carry me away, I say,
Take me away, so far far away
I can no longer stay in this chair and lay
Let me explore, I implore
The endless shore and so much more
Let me see, I plea
All that thee have made for me
Let me out, I shout
Out of this route of endless doubt
Come away, Come away
I still hear it say
Even to this day
It will never cease to say,
Come away, come away
My QueenFor reasons unknown
I have fallen for you
There is something great,
Something extraordinarily different
That draws my thoughts to you
And I may never know
Exactly what that is
But what I do know is
I've always believed
That my heart belongs
Wherever my mind goes
When it begins to wander
And that can only be you
For you are queen
Of the kingdom of my heart
Have You Ever Felt This Way?Do you have any idea what it’s like?
To live every day, not knowing what day it is,
Because you just don’t care?
Because you are numb, you feel nothing….
Depression is not what people are telling you…
It’s not just a sadness, it’s more a feeling of nothingness
You smile and laugh, you feign happiness
But in reality you feel nothing,
You just know that is what you are supposed to do
And the last thing you want, is someone asking about it
So you just keep being a fake, and you survive
You lose track of the days
Because time goes by so slow when you can’t feel a thing
You feel as if you shouldn’t even exist
You feel as though nobody notices you anyway
What’s the point to living when you aren’t really alive?
You keep asking that question
But you never have an answer
You never will have an answer
But you keep moving forward anyway
Till you reach the day where you’ve had enough
You stop listening to what everyone else has to
Delayed RealityYour fantasy a reality
Is it anything like you dreamed?
Does my heart beat the same?
Or is it faster? Stronger?
Was it as peaceful as you thought?
Did you feel the warmth?
Are you comfortable being held?
Please do me this favor…
Look back…look back on that moment
When you were enveloped in fantasy
Could you feel it in your heart?
That feeling, deep down, that you knew
Knew it wasn't really fantasy
But reality that had yet to occur.
Debating With MyselfLiving in constant struggle
Debating with myself
Do I go out in search of love?
Or do I let it find me?
Risk a good friendship,
For a chance at something more?
Or wait and see
If you make the first move?
Deciding could be easy
If only I had a clue
As to how you feel
If I go for it,
I am going in blind
If I do nothing,
I may never know
Which is the greatest risk?
I do not know
 DreamGo to sleep now, close your eyes
And try on daring dreams for size
Test your wings now, have no fear
For all is well and I am here
Go to sleep now, close your eyes
And set your gaze on cloudless skies
Explore the world awaiting you
Summon ship, appoint your crew
Go to sleep now, close your eyes
And dream of truth without the lies
See all there is, learn all you can
Remember when your life began
Go to sleep now, close your eyes
Then wake to see the new sunrise
Rest assured in knowing true
That I'll never stop loving you
Keep in Touch!
