Alone In The Dark

Fate has brought me here
Chasing the moon in darkness
Finding myself at this lake
Under the full moon gaze
Surrounded by nocturnal eyes

I’m not sure why I’ve come
My intuition is seldomly wrong
So I stand with an empty mind
Playing with the darkness
Until my curiosity is fed

The moon sweeps the tree tops
Making the shadows come alive
As dark nimbus clouds appear
Leaving me alone in the dark
To find my way back home

 

You Are Not Alone

Staring out the window relaxed and expressionless
Watching a time lapse of clouds slowly rolling by
Sounds of rustling leaves tinker with my thoughts
Thinking of the past year as I try not to cry

Everything and nothing can happen in an instant
The pinnacle of joy and sadness come to play games
Emotions become a battlefield of life’s happenings
And the heart never seems to come out unscathed

The struggles of life and death effects each one us
No matter our backgrounds we all cross these paths
Each year holds new fortunes in cookies unopened
Revealing itself at anytime life crumbles its mask

The clouds dissipate and the sun rays begin to peek
A thought bringing peace to my face is now shown
The ups and downs in life we all share together
Always remember that you are not alone

 

Imperfect Puzzle Piece

My adolescence darkened by shadows of doubt
Silence was my friend and in my heart we always played
I felt like the imperfect puzzle piece that never quite fit
The odd number in a world of evens they wished would go away

My pain hidden away masked by a broken smile
The cold air of loneliness snuffs out the light of my spirit
My wings soaking in tears of depression prevents my flight
Questions of why I am here so loud I can feel it

I never thought there would be a place for me
The lost imperfect puzzle piece that never quite fit
Until I found others with the same imperfect piece
That never gave up searching and refusing to quit

If you find yourself being that imperfect piece
I’m here to tell you that you are not alone
Stay true to yourself being that different soul
And let the heart guide you to your everlasting home

Suffocation

it’s becoming harder to breathe
each breath I take the more I lose
the crushing weight of expectations
dead ends at every door I choose

my heart declares a state of emergency
chaos sets fires in my once tranquil mind
fueled by the volatile gas of anxiety
an exit amidst the flames I try to find

just before I give up I close my eyes
feeling I am about to take my last breath
the cool mist of wisdom quells the flames
telling me there is still strength in me left

focus returns to me in piercing determination
the doors are still closed so I make my own
breaking through I find soothing fresh air
astonished of what I can do when I am alone
