Sensitive

I could never be stoic

It’s impossible

I’ve got the world on my shoulders

And the world’s emotions in my heart

Being sensitive doesn’t mean

That I’m stupid, weak, or naive

My heart beats for love

And that gives me all of the strength

That I could ever need

You don’t know what I’m thinking

But I know how you’re feeling

Because I likely feel it too

Tender and tough

I won’t hide how I feel

Or how you make me feel

For your comfort

I feel with my whole body

Taking over all of my thoughts

Never really over

I’m a sensitive soul

Must be where my wisdom comes from

There is no textbook

That can teach you life lessons

There is no shame or abnormality

In having and showing feelings

It’s contagious

Overwhelmed with tears, smiles, screams, conversations, and silence

It’s not easy

But I wouldn’t change it

I was born ready

My Heart Seems to Become More Open Every Time It Breaks

Small town girl

Big city girl

Suburban gothic

In my sometimes lonely world

 

You cut me open

And I never stop bleeding

Even after that wound heals

I’m an emotional livestream

 

Alone, I fall apart

Alone, I put myself back together

Picking up the pieces

And flinging them like ashes

Into the ocean

 

Cried tears in oceans and rivers

And I’ll do it again

As many times as needed

Low self-worth took a toll on my mental health

But with each lost love,

I learn how to love myself

 

I remember my younger self

And how I always wanted

To make myself proud

From feeling small, I grow

 

I was vulnerable with you

And you took advantage of it

As a result, I found strength in it

And received a kingdom of love

After the reign of pain

 

To figure me out,

You have to figure out my heart

Mean Inspiration

Get out of my dreams

You were a lie come true

I relied on empty conversations

To try to figure out

What goes on inside your head

You say you’ll start over

Only to then restart

What you wanted to stop

 

Maybe I was a little self-indulgent

For trusting my unrealistic fantasies

More than the real you

That was right in front of me

 

Loving you comes with a price

That always inflates

And your heart and ego

Stand on uneven playing fields

Letting you go settled my debt

 

Our story is bookmarked

As a sweet, temporary moment in time

Our individual stories are to be continued

I’m still learning

 

You’ve Got Sunlight

You drive me crazy

So I would go anywhere with you

Wherever, whenever

Forever isn’t too long

I’m feeling good

 

The best mistakes are critical

For someone with air in your soul,

You spend a lot of time by the ocean

Your kiss must be sweet and salty

 

There’s truth to find, show, and tell

In this state

This state of bliss, clarity, and grace

Come closer

You’re getting warmer

 

I don’t know how you did it

My heart tripped and fell

Under your spell

Supernatural Supreme

Making it a new routine

To hit myself up every day

To check in, make sure I’m doing okay

If not, will make a change

My birth was no accident

Manifesting all day and night

I always knew how to fly

The goal is to take that leap

 

Take chances I’m given

Take chances before they’re taken away

Psychic, but more on the intuitive side

Constantly shocking everybody, including me

 

Where am I?

Anywhere I’m meant to be in life

I do what I want, like, love, and need

Nobody knows that better than me

 

The energy around me feels different

But not in an off way

Touching glimmers of light and darkness

With a dual purpose

Autobiographical

Drawing a blank right now

Can’t constantly be creative on call

I plan to improvise

Be spontaneous to strategize

 

I am and am not broken

Can’t think of anything I’m infamous for

Yet, I still feel guilty

Even though I give selflessly

Must be the water sign in me

With a splash of anxiety

 

Not sure if tiredness being part of my personality

Was a natural occurrence

Or man made

Guess it was both

 

With how much I survive

From thinking and dreaming,

I was ready to start writing

Before I started speaking

 

I am love and passion intertwined

Individual Plus One

It’s a slow burn

That’s about to go up in flames

I’d walk through fire for that creative misery

 

Habitual in our insecurity and confidence

Can’t sleep without remembering

But I’ll sleep alone

Until I can sleep next to you

 

You dream at high speeds

I can keep up from right here for hours on end

 

Your energy is like breaking glass

And dancing on the shards with a smile

Surprisingly, I relate

Because I’m a summer ballerina

With a penchant for dancing in the dark

 

All of our friends are either wasted

Or passed out from exhaustion

We’re still awake, even though we’re tired too

Tonight is a brand new day

Online anger has no place

In our personal space

 

You’re all about me and I’m all about you

 

My head is in the clouds the majority of the time

It keeps me down to earth

When everyone else hates gravity

I remind me of you

You’re my best friend who I’ve never met

Maybe, hopefully, we just haven’t met yet

 

Single goals make for double trouble

We like it like that

Sailing a rainbow bloodstream

If we have to die, we’re going to die happy

Mission decided

Chameleon-type fashion, but make it love

 

Knight in rusted armor and with a free mind

Princess ditched her crown for freedom

Brave and Covered in Blood

The sound of silence can be deafening

Standardization was never enough to fix us

Chaotic good is my hero

Wearing white in hopes of being stained red

Blood red, cheered up with wine

Your closest family and friends aren’t that innocent either

Change is the devilish angel there is

Are you in or out?

 

Battle cry of the breakthrough battle

Previously hidden confidence

The sharpest sword is combining it with vulnerability

 

Take a piece of me

But it will always come back to me

Cut me open

And I’ll sew my own stitches

Spill my guts

I swallow truth until I’m broken enough

To break you

Strike you like a viper and you never saw it coming

 

Delicate, sensitive, but not weak

Stab my heart and I only get stronger

Play me for a fool

And I’ll prey on the predator

 

Sleeping Beauty became nightmare fuel

Suffocate me

And I learn to breathe more freely

Kill me

And I’ll haunt you for the rest of your life

And into the afterlife

The wicked deserve no rest

The damsel-in-distress always had dreams

I’ve always been so sweet and put together, right?

But everything is not what it seems

A Little Bit Broken

He’s trying to fight reality

And his feelings

A war taking place all around outside

And in his mind

He comes, goes, and stays

Keeps starting without finishing

Loves love

Yet pushes it away

When it’s in front of him

Calling for names

To grasp some kind of meaning

He would live and die for life

We all would

He needs more than that

Working from sunrise to sunset

 

I know what’s inside me

And I can’t change my heart

He tries to manipulate the compass

But ends up back where he started

Breathe, smile, cry, repeat

 

Logic isn’t always logical

He tries to drown out emotions

With science, high notes, and brooding silence

He chases his dreams

To catch happiness

He caught me

Gazes into my eyes

Finds a taste of his own medicine

The catch is that I’m a cure

Not a dose

 

Has he messed with my head or fixed it?

He hates and causes distance

Tells me what I want to hear

But I can sense that he means every word

Our needs aren’t that different

We’re both definitely healing

But still a little bit broken

I hope he knows that it’s not his fault

Whatever he’s going through right now

I hope that he never stops believing in himself

And knows that I’m always here

The Greatest Shadow

It’s hard to find the words

To describe dreams

Drifting in and out of day and night

The main idea is that you’re the best part

 

It’s no coincidence

That the best times of my life

Which I experienced during my downward spirals

I experienced with you

It’s no accident

That every theory you have about the world

Makes sense

That our psyches seem to understand each other

Better than we understand ourselves sometimes

 

Somewhere over the rainbow,

All crowds and clouds dispersed

Until they disappeared

And it’s just us hiding

In the arms of a sunny meadow

I’ve been on the outskirts

Of your overpopulated city this whole time

Come find me when you’re lost

And ready for the beginning of an era

That has no sad ending

It’s all up to you now

 

Can’t believe I once

Overestimated and underestimated you

When I’ve always seen the real you

That not everyone sees

You don’t need to prove

That you’re ready to let the light in

When your smile can light up a void

You’re so predictable

Yet, full of surprises

 

Who knew that all time highs

Could be born from all time lows?

As time goes on, it really hits home

I don’t want to live without you

Or me

 

Skipping an episode or skimming a page

Wouldn’t be the same

There is no finale

Just an answer every season of love

Deep feelings eliminate opinions

A twin heart that fell from the sky

Into your lap

Won’t make you stray from your path

We are what we were missing
