Sirens

January 7th, 2011

Falling to the floor
In shock
No idea what happened
I look up at the wall
I shake in pain
And grab my head
My hands come down wet
My hands came down red
I run to the bathroom
The bleeding won’t stop
The pounding so loud
The people surrounding me
The questions won’t end
And as soon as they do
The sirens take me away
To another place
They say I’ll be okay

What better day to share the story of the events that transpired on 4/11/2003, and how I got what I like to call my “Harry Potter” scar.

Blind Confusion

December 20th, 2010

Tomorrow’s not looking good
But today’s not the day
Yesterday wasn’t either
Why do things happen this way
This is not what I want
But I don’t know if that’s true
I’m just so confused
I don’t know what to do
I know what I have
And I know what I don’t
It’s not going to happen
I can’t do what I won’t
But if it’s true
Why are these things in my mind
Why do I have eyes
That makes me feel blind
Why do I have questions
Of things I don’t want to know
And how can I love someone
Yet want to let them go

The Broken Glass

February 1st, 2022

I am more broken
Than the eggshells on the floor
I tiptoe quietly
Because this became a war
No sudden movements
No need to sound the alarm
But you pierce me with your words
Like they’re shot from firearms
These eggshells are sharp
On my feet that are bare
And for years I waited on a sign
That you wanted to be there
I made wishes on eyelashes
And every underpass
I walked through hell for you
But I won’t walk on shattered glass
