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
I did not find you first But I looked and I searched And somehow I found you in this immense universe The skies turned black Your eyes so blue Of all the stars shining None shine quite like you I may not have been a part of your past But I wish to always be your last
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
I want to feel safe. I want to feel secure. I’m riding this rollercoaster, It’s hard to endure. I need some stability, something concrete. Something that makes my soul feel complete. Something that tethers me, like gravity to my feet. I need to feel safe.
