“A bad experience does not make you a bad person.” -LKS-
Performing self-care does not need to mean that you allow your body to soak up the warmth of a hot bubble bath or must purchase that item you’ve craved for so long. In moments of despair, self-care can be scary or impracticable because — in all honesty — many of us just stop caring orContinue reading “Simple Self-Care”
Heavy head in the clouds, cluttered mind in the fog, defeated chin to the ground, she recollects her hardships and gathers her hidden thoughts deep inside her. Rough journey through sand, prickling garden of thorns, and dry yellow grass all around her. She hollers at fields, where the blossoms spring forth, as they peak atContinue reading “Secret Garden”
My all is your nothing My best is your worse Your you is my blessing My me is your curse. One day they will know That your you was not there They will see what I had Was not ours to share.
The spit of life has split us up;We sipped the shit right out that cup. Bottoms up and both let down;Dirt disguised as coffee grounds;Perhaps the tea cannot be stirred;The drink instead creates a word. A letter dropped to form a noun;In liquid form to screw around;The “tea” it eats the “f” in fear;The hollowContinue reading “The Tea In Tears”
If coins turn to bills,I will travel the world.I will touch other earth;Change my dirt into pearls. I’d step off of this land,And set foot in a plane.I would roll in your grass,And I’d dance in your rain.
I stumbled into bad choices, dead ends and wrong turns;Every blister and ouch was a lesson I learned.I grappled to people like flies to manure;Every love in my way was untrue and unpure.I tended the fire, but then I got burned;Every story of mine is a badge that I earned.I am who I am fromContinue reading “Burning Crossroads”
The toxicity in his rigid voice and the poison in his frigid palms haunted her being as an unsupportable appetency smack in the night. Notwithstanding the repetitive discomfort, she continuously crawled back for more, like a comforting hug restricting her airways and falsely affirming that her existence cannot exist without his. Her amount-less luggage wasContinue reading “Ecchymosed Cheeks”
Caressing her heart and repairing her soul, the butterfly ushers on by. Depositing joy on her face. Extending hope in her hands. Lifted up from her knees as the butterfly lands.
Blindly peeking through panesof houses aligned;in search of your losses and founds you might find.They have what is theirs and what’s yours is your own;not so great and not grand,still a place to call home. The meaning you seekis the value within;untucked behind curtains and walls paper thin.The gold in their groutand the rich inContinue reading “Window Pain”

Through researching mental health and disorders, I have come across a rather eye-opening subject: cognitive distortions. The most simple way I have found to define this condition is by comparing it to those who suffer from dyslexia. As words on paper appear to some in the wrong order, deformed or read incorrectly, cognitive distortions affectContinue reading “Cognitive Distortions”
In between all the calls, I just rocked and I prayed That the child I had Won’t be taken away. I did not let out tears; I shed rivers and streams. I fought night and feared sleep, Cause you’d creep through my dreams. I felt pain in my heart That would not go away, AsContinue reading “Still Here”
Barely beating for long; Lengthy year in the blue. Colours crept through the cracks, Shingles clinged to the roof. Nearly gone, but she’s here; The brink close to the edge. She inhales from her lungs; Climbing mountains instead. Every minute ticked by; Now she ticks what she does. Tumbling high over hurdles, Letting go ofContinue reading “The Brink”
There are two types of people in the world: Those who would jump down from a plane to save others and those who would push others to save themselves. Sadly, many folks who would conceitedly disregard every other passenger have relationship issues with everybody else on the plane. They therefore automatically attach themselves and latchContinue reading “Oxygen Mask”
They get and receive, but want more When refused they can kick and slam doors Being showered with gifts; temporarily fixed Still, no wrapping or bow fills that void. The suffering felt from inside Is too hurtful to quiet and hide They externalize pain; to silence their brain Just to pause what they feel inContinue reading “Fill to Fix”
Another clue stashed into the folds of his costly leather wallet. One more hinted fractured promise. How could she be so stupid? Too captivated and naïve to see the fraudulent grin beneath his rehearsed smile. He plays her well. Again and again. He has captured her diffident queen and has left her scrawny pawn butContinue reading “The Line In The Sand”
