Open Book

I’m an open book
Turn the page and take a look
Inside you’ll find every emotion and feeling
The trauma and pain that still needs healing
The once frightened child
My thoughts gone wild
The tears that I’ve cried
All the times that I’ve tried
The love in my soul
Things I can’t control
Every page, every chapter
Will have you wonder
How life hasn’t snapped her

My Light

Maybe it’s not that my light
doesn’t shine bright enough
for others to care,
Maybe it’s that my light shines too bright;
hard to witness, to bear.
So the world throws its shade and its filters,
in forms of trauma and tragedy,
in attempts to dim or dull
my light capacity.
But I still glow and gleam in the dark…
Beaming dazzling light into the night sky,
like art

My Mental Maladies

My mental maladies
They formed from tragedies;
Moments that happened with me
Fragments of what could be
Particles of things once believed
But there’s nothing wrong in me
/for you to decide/
Nothing for you to see
For what once was catastrophe
is no longer masquerading ,
like a moving masterpiece;
I’m constantly translating
/nothing to hide/

Won’t See You Again

The fog has lifted
My spirit shifted
I once was gifted
But now I don’t know,
how
to talk to you

Cause it was easier then
Back when
We were younger with discipline
stronger voice within

And now the story’s old
Nothing left to be told
I’m getting on the road
Won’t see you again

So this it then
It’s been real friend

The Fog

The fog is thick and dense
Of what’s in front,
you can’t make sense
Yet I still reach for your touch
Even when I can’t see much

But I can still feel you
And I can still see you

The fog is lifting now
Things getting clearer out
I can finally see your face
All the fog has begun to break

I can feel you
I can see you

Through the dense air
See your wavy hair
I’d walk blindly to get to you

But it was clear
And you were near
To feel you,
there’s nothing I wouldn’t do

Yes the airs been thick
But we’re always quick
To find our ways

And I can see you
And I can feel you

Kyoko WP

Predator

It doesn’t matter
how many years have passed
I can still feel you choke me
I can still feel your grasp
your grabs and your grip
Fighting my screams
by biting my lip
You tossed and threw me
like rag doll
You behaved like a predator
ready to maul
I closed my eyes until it was over
The shame and the pain,
the full – body exposure
I’ll never forget
but I’ll always long for
closure
