Her Wildness is Healing You

the truth is this
we all have a storm
inside of us
wanting to be released
she is that person
who brings out your
heaviness and sadness
she is the healing waters
that floods your soul with love
she is the wind of change
you so desperately want
but cannot give to yourself
and when the storm passes
she is the sun
you want to possess

Love that Kills

his so-called love
made me feel
like i was underwater
gasping for air
the truth is
his hate
tried to drown me

A Lazy Day

i remember being
lazy that day
being lazy with you
floating on the river
with a beer in hand
listening to the birds
chattering their secrets
and the gentle breeze
whispering their sorrows
they knew my joy and disappointments
they knew the secret longing
that was buried in my chest for you
even the sun was lazy that day
it shadowed me
but shined on you

Bright Shining Stars

you would never know
by looking at me
the progress i've made in life
the storms i've survived
the major breakthroughs i've made
by being patient and loving towards myself
you would never guess
that my silent battles
that no one sees
are slowly transforming
me into a warrior
i carry a torch
for all women
who behind closed doors
do the deep inner work
to heal their wounds
like me
they are bright shining stars

Invest in Yourself

you did such a good job at pretending you were happy. you faked the smiles so no one would catch on to your pain. you invested in him and his self worth. you always gave him credit even though backstage it was all you behind his success. you were his right hand and backbone. when will you realize, now that he is gone, you can take all the credit for the woman you always have been; strong, courageous, determined, and successful? you put it all in him. now it's time to put it all in yourself.

When to Let Go of Anger

i know i have
issues with anger
you would too
if you've been
through the hell
i've been through
and now you're just
trying to survive the pain
i'm here to tell you
that if you do know
the flames of hell
then you have
every damn
right to be angry
don't let others tell you
you should let it go
what do they know
do it in your own time darling
no need to explain yourself
i get it

A Love That Can Stand the Fire

if the person you are yelling at doesn't listen to you, chances are he doesn't love you. his ability to feel and handle emotions is limited. his capacity to nurture you when you need him the most and his willingness to listen to your pain is next to zero. darling, don't you deserve a man who's emotionally mature and knows how to handle your inner fires? a man that knows how to heal your wounds because he loves you, i mean really loves you? not this fake love that turns his back on you and destroys a piece of you every time things get heated. real love dissolves hate. real love diminishes fear.

Longing to be Whole

her heart, hand, and mind
reached for
the broken things
longing to fix them
longing to fix herself
