Hello lovelies! Here’s to another Sunday of poetry! Please enjoy 🙂
because all I see are words
you string together and capture me with.
Please don’t say what you want
I can’t take it, these words will destroy me.
Please let me lives the lies, it’s safer than truth.
Explain everything, but forget the truth.
It won’t change anything
It won’t give me you.
I layer wall upon wall
to shield truth from wandering eyes.
I hide behind brick and wood
I steal from the stars the darkness
to hide the light inside.
They can not steal what you hide.
I fit my heart in tiny bows
and wrap it painfully in leather.
I trust that no stone nor arrow can piece
what is hidden within.
I nourish the walls until they ripen
And await the day
One is clever enough to harvest them.
SELDOM DO WE BREAK
because we can’t.
We lose and we hurt and we suffer
but we can’t break.
There is strength inside our bones,
A wariness of the world
and all it contains.
We still move and breathe,
because we live through the pain.
Have a great week, everyone. Follow me on Twitter @CaseyDonart
