It wasn’t until
I got caught up in the wreckage with you,
our bodies intertwined,
that I felt the urge within me
to run every red light thereafter.

I no longer live within moments
that now only exist to create memories without you
– they are empty and broken in the same way that I am.
So I detach myself,
a life destined to be lived in the past,
chasing footsteps
made by ghosts
that leave me lost.

I am no longer held by you
in the way that I need to be held
so that my heart can feel moved.
The layers of warmth,
that were once bone deep,
bleed from my skin
through the cracks that refuse to close.
Where there was once light,
I am now exposed to the ever-changing textures of darkness,
my focus gone as I am stood at the edge of everything,
a whisper amongst the silence,
an echo without its sound.

You never truly understood me,
not in the way I wanted you to.
Your eyes always saw love
as though it were a glorious day
and the second the storms took hold,
the sails were raised,
and you were off,
in search of paradise.

I truly understand
why the moth is drawn to the light,
its wings frantically beating against the glass
- it fears the darkness,
in the same way I fear you
and yet I still smile,
every single time you tell me you love me,
even though I’m slowly dying inside.

We don’t flow into each other with ease.
We will never be the gentle stream
slipping effortlessly into the river.
That’s not us.
Our relationship will always be the wildest waters
forcing their way into the stream instead.
It’s how we flow.

I want someone
who will promise me stars
that haven’t even been born,
from galaxies
that are yet to be formed.

Never let anyone
or anything
convince you
that you aren’t beautiful.
The reason you always feel insecure
is because you are an entire universe
living in a world made up of stargazers
who will only appreciate you
for your night sky.

I remember how the rain
made my clothes feel heavy,
how they clung to me
in the same way I held onto you
feeling my heart break
when you never held me back,
your arms incapable of loving me
because I no longer moved you
in the way I once used to.

Always keep an open mind and respect those around you.
Life is never going to be straightforward,
it is supposed to be diverse,
the people who breathe its air
are supposed to be different
– different is good,
it should be embraced and celebrated
not ignored and ridiculed
- all we end up doing is isolating ourselves from each other.
We all have the power within us
to build and grow and do amazing things
with our minds and yet we can also become
the architects of our own demise
if we are not careful.   
Think.
Build.            
Grow.

Books and relationships

While cleaning the bookshelf ;
I look at all the books.
Some bought, others stolen
Some borrowed but never returned.

Some I got because the title
Looked interesting
For others - the cover.
Paperbacks and hard-bounds.

Most I hadn’t read.
Some, I started but left
In between;
A few I had read completely.

And I couldn’t help but notice
As with books, so with relationships.
How many did I quit reading,
Still looking for closure.

I  never continue a book I left off;
Never looked back.
Always in anticipation of the next,
And the journey that’ll unfold.

When love ends,
it dies,
it automatically becomes an open casket funeral.
There should be tears,
there should be a period of mourning,
the procession should be able to pay their respects
– nothing will ever be the same again.
When we don’t acknowledge its passing,
when we don’t allow ourselves the time to grieve,
to heal,
we will never truly be able to love again.

Your poetry is going to be raw and emotional
and it might not flow perfectly but it’s you.
You spilled your heart out on the page
and that’s the best kind of beautiful there is.

We need more solutions not bigger problems.
We need the right kind of answers not more questions.
There needs to be so much more love
than the hate that breeds
and then maybe just maybe
we will have a better understanding of each other,
a better understanding of ourselves
and the only voice we will hear
is the voice of reason
and it will be so loud
that the negative voices in our head
- the ones that convince us of things that aren’t true -
will no longer be heard.

Even at the worst of times:
each passing storm,
every stolen breath,
I have always fought the falling skies for us,
I have stood my ground,
I’ve cheated death.
Scattered pieces of my broken heart,
mother nature’s wrath
can be cruel and harsh;
my roots are strong,
my spirit too,
she will not destroy what we have built,
I will never tire,
whilst I have you.

I will not subject my heart to periods of confusion
just to satisfy your ever-changing needs.
If you are to love me
it will not be whilst in a dream like state
– I have no time for dreamers,
they are either asleep
or have their head stuck permanently in the clouds
where the air is thin
and the oxygen sparse.

Although I run from you,
the distance is minimal in comparison
to how far I have tried to run from myself
and failed.
I may run from you,
but I can never truly run from me
and that hurts more than you’ll ever know
because right now,
I know that I am not good enough for you
-  I am as far from being me as I can possibly be.  
If you knew of my pain,
the darkness I wear that sits comfortably beneath my skin,
you would realise that I only run from you,
so that my demons follow me and only me
– regardless of the love
I feel so deeply for you.  
If they follow me,
they cannot hurt you,
so I run.
