Heartbeats stop

Teardrops

Drop.

The world keeps moving

On and on.

She Asks For Nothing

Standard

She asks how you are doing.

You have a short 

Conversation,

The whole time

Her heart screaming inside her

Chest,

“I am so lonely.

So goddamn lonely.”

Her brain holding the dam straight and strong against

The welling of tears.

And she laughs.

She hugs you

A little longer than you feel comfortable so

You let go

And 

“Let’s catch up soon”

And she glances to the ocean.

The ocean who is always calling.

And she thinks how much she longs to go to her.

“The ocean will hold me as long as I need

And stroke my tangled hair.”

She asks for nothing

In return.

“And i do not need to speak.

I walk on to where i need to go

Leaving the ocean for

Now.

She waits for my return.”

Her heart beating morse code,

Begging,

Wait for me. Wait for me.

Standing Tall

Standard

 

Pushing.
Pulling.
Laughing while
Drowning.
Reaching.
Withdrawing.
Smiling more
Than necessary.
Heaven forbid someone
Asks…….
Turmoil.
Twisting and turning.
Nauseous belly.
Quickly glance away.
Everything’s alright;
Could be worse.
Getting back up hoping
Nobody sees
Bloody knees,
Tear stained wrists.
The people keep moving.
The world keeps rotating.
Noises never cease.
Spinning.
Falling.
Standing tall is all people
Prefer to see.

just keep smiling

I Will Stay

Standard

Oh my friend
All our lives
(Since i can remember)
Your heart has ached
And try as i might
(in this life that we have known)
I cannot carry the weight
For you
(I realize this as we grow old)

Though I tried when we were young

(Helplessly)

I keep

hope.

I am here
(In the silence, through the tears)
And here i will stay
By your side
(Through the years)
