We danced together
for the briefest of times
My fragile heart aware
you could never be mine
After a while
it was time to set us free
Relocate to a place
where you’d never look for me
Acutely aware of time and space
20 years later we are both slapped in the face
It wasn’t me you could choose
So I left first…
seeing you today
Oh, my weathered heart burst.
He’s been good to me
and you still call her your wife
The dismal part of this story
Cuts like a knife
If you asked me to…
I’d softly run if you called
and start our new, old life
Daily Prompt: Relocate
You keep me hoping, wishing, praying. On tenterhooks, I’m swaying.
What’s your answer?
What’s it gonna be?
I’m over here dangling, oh my god I’m clinging, hands bloodied and stinging
Why are you taking so long?
What do you need to see?
Slipping off this tether, I can’t hold on forever, put me out of my misery
Is it gonna be her…please choose me.

Bet that pisses you off…
Daily Prompt: Sparkle
I take my pills, I talk it out,
but that’s not what it’s all about
My brain’s on fire, my brain’s a zoo,
my brain’s a messed up roiling stew
Depressive here, manic there,
when’s the last time I’ve washed my hair?
I’ll wilt and shudder, I’ll pace and mutter,
I’ll prove that I’m a fucking nutter
Bipolar costs you, bipolar cost me,
bipolar sure as hell doesn’t come for free
I lost my friends, I lost my looks,
I lose myself inside of books
I make a world just for me, I create a place no one can see,
I make a world where I’m free
Sometimes there’s blood, sometimes there’s gore,
sometimes I don’t wanna be here anymore
Pills make me sick, pills make me mad,
without my pills, I’m too damn sad
Razors cut and hot glue burns, my gut twists and my gut turns,
too many scars for the girl who refuses to learn
My body twitches, I’m always cold,
I never do what I am told
Bipolar’s always here, sits haughtily on a throne,
I’ll live to be 109 and it’ll never leave me alone
A quick peek, just a Snippet
…we know a secret
we carry it still today
in your world, it may go black
but in ours, everything gold can stay…
There’s only One-Way to live, only One-Way to be, only one road to follow, only one place you’re free. One-way or no way, simple as that, the One-Way and right way is right where you’re at. The One-Way will twist you and the One-Way will turn you, the fire inside will scorch you and burn you. Staying One-Way means you will reach its end, but without the One-Way middle, you’ll never learn how to bend. One-Way or no way, upside or down, without the path of the One-Way, you’re sure to lose ground. The One-Way is simple, the One-Way is true, the One-Way is me patiently waiting for you.
