Romance

Word count: 74

Warnings: No warnings.


Have you ever loved so greatly,

You can’t remember your life before

You met them?

Your past, a dull, grey anomaly compared

To the joy and color they brought to your life?

 

Have you ever missed someone so deeply,

Every day you pray you’ll fall asleep, and

Wake up beside their beautiful, precious face,

But instead, you wake up to the dull, grey

Anomaly that is your life, longing for your

Lover to return.

 

Have you sacrificed your mind and soul,

Just to ensure their happiness?

To put aside your wants

Forego your needs,

To give their every desire,

To make Their dreams come true –

That is one of many great acts of love.

 

Oh, the feeling of warmth and safety,

The familiar, stunning smile

Of the one you’d thank

If they shattered you into a million pieces,

The bond between two which can never be broken,

True Love.

A hopeless romantic I shall remain,

Until, maybe, perhaps one day,

I’ll find my true love,

With them, I’ll spend the rest of my days.

Don’t Give Up

Word count: 88

Warning: No warning!


When it becomes too much,

And you give up on hope,

Remember the struggles you’ve been through

Remember the joy and comfort you find in your family and friends

Remember the reason why you’re sacrificing time, sleep, happiness…

Remember that you’ve come too far to give up now

It’s okay to take a breather,

To relax,

To unwind

Don’t bother your mind with the foolish chatter

Of mindless idiots who try to get in the way of your goal

You can do anything if you believe you can

Happiness

Word count: 296

Warning:  No warnings!


Crying’s a weakness, she told me so

But I can’t help it when the thing I most aspire to be

Slips right through my hands

But David’s here, Whitney too

So many inspirations I could never meet

Though I know in my soul

They’ll be with me every step of the way (they always have been)

Never once have they let me down

They brought me my one aspiration

But what is happiness, truly?

True happiness cannot be wrapped

In pretty paper and bows

Nor can it be bought

I suppose it comes from deep within

Deep within your heart, mind, and soul

It’s only now I’m learning,

That it’s okay to be afraid

It’s okay to be sad

It’s okay to cry

It’s okay to be mad at the world

It’s okay to embrace your disabilities

It’s okay, because you are human

And there is not one human being

On the face of this Earth

That is perfect and saint-like

In fact, we’re all a bunch of sinners

But it’s the people who want to change, who want forgiveness

That go straight to heaven

I think I know what happiness to me is now

It’s my family

My animals

My friends

My teachers

The countless amount of people who are always kind to me

And most importantly,

It’s the love and respect I have for myself

No matter how many times I think negatively about myself,

No matter how many times I shame myself for my body,

No matter how many times I wish I was “normal”,

No matter how many times Life kicks me down,

No matter how sad I am,

At the end of the day, I realize just how amazingly unique I am

How blessed I am

That is happiness to me

 

 

Be Strong My Friend

Warning: No warning!


You are beautiful

You are strong

You are smart

Don’t let these ignorant fools

Convince you otherwise

Crying does not make you weak

I know you’re in pain, but please hold on

You are courageous

Your smile is beautiful, and infectious

Some people don’t understand you,

But know that I do, and I will never judge you

Your friends adore you

And look up to you

Those who are jealous of you

Will try to deceive and hurt you

But know that they are pettily ignorant,

And do not deserve your attention

You think so badly about yourself,

And that makes me sad

You are priceless!

And please, stop apologizing

You’ve done nothing wrong,

I wish you could see

Just how amazing you are,

You are not annoying, or a bother

You are the bright sun that

Lights up the dark, dreary worlds

Of others

Don’t stop being yourself,

Because you are you

And it shouldn’t be any other way

Updates

Hello! As of today, there are going to be some major and minor changes to the blog. One major change is the layout and overall design of the blog, I thought it’d be good to mix things up a little! I’m also including the word count of each poem/story/etc. as well as warnings. I’ve edited and added some new pages too, so I’m really excited! As always, I encourage you to leave feedback and opinions! Thank you all for sticking with me through my (sorta) blog-identity crisis!
