Nature Feels 

Mesmerized by these purple splattered skies 

Remembering all the special highs and goodbyes 

Overlooking us are the clouds scattered in the sky 

Watching their reflections float by in your eyes 

In that moment

All I wanted was to be 

How I wanted you to feel

Like the harmony when the sky meets 

The sea 

I feel the essence of your universe 

I see you when I close my eyes 

Something so beautiful 

How could anyone ever possibly despise 

To wallow in your enigmatic magnificence 

To appreciate the amalgamation of the colours of your soul 

Digging deeper into the depths of your colourful unknown

Your flaws are what make you imperfectly quintessential 

Every flaw adds to your existential potential 

To love all of you is my true intention  

Like the wind blowing the trees in one direction 

Captivating my being with such ease 

Like the leaves do stems on the trees in the breeze 

Flowers blooming in the loam of your mind 

Sowing seeds of beauty which you then planted in mine 


Letting Go 

You’ve been so strong for so long 

It seems easier to just not feel 

But you know that’s a big lie 

Because somehow, someway 

The pain starts to build 

Wherever you tried to bury it 

And like an unsettled soul 

It resurfaces from the grave 

But not in its previous form

No, it’s more haunting 

My soul crippled by the festering pains 

I’ve  managed to keep hidden so low below 

Sealed with my signature smile

But sooner or later 

That smile begins to fade into the abyss

As I fall deeper and deeper into my darkness 

I’ve been here many times before 

But each time feels like the first time 

Each pain feels unidentifiable 

Each tear represents every act of neglect 

I did myself 

I rediscover 

I have to hold on to let it go
