Poem: Words of Comfort

Times are tough sometimes. Mental illness is no joke and I only recently began to seek treatment for mine. I got to a really dark place mentally and this poem was the result.

It is so important to take care of your mental health. It was literally a life and death situation for me, which was why I finally got help. So many people have told me that I am brave for being proactive in seeking treatment for myself. I didn’t feel brave. I still don’t. However, as I piece my life back together once again, I keep moving forward. I take my small victories, even those that others may view as insignificant. I’ll live.

Words of Comfort
“It’ll be ok.”

“It’ll all be over soon.”

I give myself these words of comfort

Just to make it past noon.

The grass is high.

Where do the snakes lurk?

Will today be my day of doom?

Who knows?

The innocence of youth saves me.

The promise of life after relieves my fears.

I have nothing to fear.

Not even the snakes.

Not even failure.

I hunger.

I thirst.

I live.

Poem: Pain Killer

For the first time in several years, I got up in front of an audience and read some of my poetry. I have to admit, it felt good and made me think about what more I could be doing with my poetry. Life gets in the way of dreams sometimes, but this blog gives me a chance to express myself and share my art. Here’s the video of one of my poems Pain Killer. I hope you enjoy it.

Poem: I Love the Way You Admire Me

I love the way you admire me.

Breath in sync.

Embrace as infinite as the sky.

With the view from where we are

I could reach up and touch heaven.

Stay at my side and let me warm you

and provide your place of rest.

Lay your head on me and squeeze for dear life

Let’s hold on to heaven forever.

Shrink: A Poem

I’m shrinking.

Pulling away from what weighed me down and pushing up into a new way of

Thinking.

What I loved purposely left me weeping,

Tenderized

Pulverized heart,

But still a heart still worth keeping.

And it beats stronger… while the heaviness withers away and I shrink, I think, “How great it is to be thinner from ‘wait’ loss, patiently hoping for better days, and stronger from the discomfort of willing myself more life.”

Say It!

The temptation to call is too great

for me to not act on it now.

You impress with loyalty,

sweet nothings every day

knowing I am yours

Though I’m speechless

You know me.

I see.

You.
