Honey, sweetened words
My life has been contagious to quirky moments. I have
even called myself quirky many a times. Yet the honey
I drop for those to come a calling tends to have stinging
Clarity of the shields these detested insects project, fooled
me. I fell within their stinging lies and thrashed through
webs of deceit to cling deep within their arms. 
One does tend to ask, why did you allow it? 
Yet the question that angers me the most is
why did I chose to open myself?
And even in those doubting mentions towards
my own choices, time grates over the wounds
festering. This depth of my temper rising proves 
that I probably, in sound mind, would not have
allowed it the second time around.
And now where does the time stop? How do
I heal the heart, the spirit from the life I led?
How do I move forward when all that is
before me are reminders of the hurt? 
Build a wall again. Reinforce it. 
Lessons learned and inflammed, festering
wounds poulticed. 
Leave me alone is all I

Follow me
Enter into my world, he says. A world of wonders and passion.
How life seemed so fascinating. I came. I wondered. I fell.
You see I loved him too deep. Knowing just where I stood, I 
failed myself.
Time called a crease to savor my cries. Lingering long enough
to scrap me off the floor. Melted and so unappealing.
I had worn myself too finely. 
All in hopes that I was found worthy of his attention.
I had to rid myself of the stresses of being in his
environment. Drop to the ground only to save myself
from the callous laughter I heard coming from his
latest attraction. 
I never thought myself to be a coward nor cruel.
Yet I found myself wanting to go to such atrocious 
extremes to be shady and vindictive. 
I still wanted him to hold me. Clutch me as though
I was all that was enough for him. My hope to 
rekindle this embered passion. 
Yet I knew I could not. I had done it too many times.
I had to scream. Deep within me I needed that release.
I just l

How I let go
Grant me the strength to walk away from you.
Even when you ask me to stay.
Tell me to say no.
Don't let me get angry with myself
for losing you. For I know I will
question myself repeatedly whether
the choices I made were right.
Do I dare to cry?
Giving you the satisfaction of knowing
just how hurt I was when I left you.
Oh how damaging that can be.
Hold back.
Stay away, things I say to myself.
Pass by but never glance. 
Carelessly I loved like a fool.
Laughing so much, I do now, to 
swallow the still blazing ache.
Echoes within the fragile ice heart
dance only carefully. I taste only the 
salt that melts me. Daily I find reasons
to show how I must learn to trust.
And still I settle in my mind,
who is there to trust? 
I forge this steel grip within me
stating I dreamed too much. I let
myself believe such oddities.
Only to know now that I placed 
damage in my life. I loved. 
I shared. I gave. 
Even now as happiness sits
with me everyday, some word

I wonder how the water flows. How it feels?
Steady and peaceful.
Clear and determined.
Calm or raging in anger.
Do I hear the cries of the waves as I steal 
the air? Suffocating the earth, drying down the
And do I dare to complain of the toxins 
dripping into my systems? I am not innocent of
the poison I give. 
Though in time I am frozen. Paused. 
So much of me is a misunderstanding. 
Yet I dare to beg you to glimpse and 
acknowledge the part you played.
My time is crititcal. Limited to those who
hope to destroy me. Breaking me down, 
shredding my insides. 
I want nothing more to show my anger
towards them. To spare them no escape of
toxins they inhale. Nor give them water for the
fire I spread all around them. 
Yet I want all life to be peaceful. 
To finally make the choices of sensibility.
Have the laughter of ripples echo 
throughout my senses. Deepening like the
wind does to the water. 
Does the world hold me
