the emptiness that haunts me

Friday, February 17, 2017


i don't write
for i have no words
my pen is dry
and my wrist aches
yet still my page is
empty
      empty
            empty
these words
scream
pound
fight
to get out
but still
there's nothing
empty
      empty
            empty
so what can i do
but stare
drowning in my thoughts
unable to release them
unable to breath
without them
empty
      empty
            empty
these words haunt me
suffocate me
consume me
until i'm no more
than the emptiness
that forever follows me
empty 
      empty
            empty
has this become
the song of my heart
or
do i just have to wait
a little bit longer
for my words
to appear
once more




refusing to go out

i want a passion
so strong
that the wind that moves the trees
and the force that creates the waves
gasp back in surprise
i want my pen
to spill ink
endlessly forming words
i want my heart
to sing
the birds in the sky
will come near
to hear my song
i want my options
to be endless
for there to be no limits
to who i can help
i want my soul
to reach the mountains
and explore the seas
i want my life
to fight
for what i believe
for who i love
for what i can achieve
i want my body
to have life
full of light
drops of sunlight
that dance off my fingertips
into the smiles of others
i want to fight
because my life is important
and i want to fight
because your life is important
so grab my hand
we can run into the moonlight
together
and watch it dance
across the river
we can live
like sparks flickering against the darkness
refusing to go out
