Incompatible

Incompatible

You’re drowning me
By any means
Issues
Sorrows
Insecurities
Things that aren’t even as bad as they seem
The misperception of your emotions
Prevents you from thinking logically
I LOVE you
And you KNOW it
But no matter what I do or say
You constantly fish…
For negativity
I can’t take it
Your burdens run thick
Like sap from a tree
Slowly gaining
Eventually concealing
Weighing down
Hardening…
Becoming almost impossible to pierce
Without shattering
You!
When we get along
Happiness is undeniably present
It shines brighter than the sun
And just like night and day
When we disagree…
You forget that there ever was a sun.
Uncertainty…
Runs deep in your veins
Constantly feeling attacked
Every word is an insult
Making it difficult for me to speak
Walking on egg shells
I’m at a loss for words
I lose desire to speak
Tension on the rise
Rage begins surfacing
My mind drifts from restriction
Now…
I lash out when I speak
Roles reverse
Now your feelings are hurt
And I become the agitator
But even in the midst
Of my so called harsh words
Degrading is something I’ll never be
I don’t tear you down
You just like to think things through and through
Until you convince yourself
That you’re being attacked
Abused…
That’s not me
It starts with you
But when you see red
There’s nothing I can do
Just know you’re drowning me in your sorrows
Makes me feel
Incompatible

Life is beautiful
Dark is my reality
In your brief absence

Sunny Days

Something about the sun
Just makes it easy to smile
So uplifting
So illuminating
So much beauty to see
It opens eyes…
You make a necklace…
Sparkle a little more.
You make a body of water glisten…
As you caress the shore.
You make the tune
The hummingbird is chirping …
Come alive.
Even when shade tries to enable you
From shining through…
Somehow…
You find a way to shine!
The power you have is remarkable
You make a lifeless tree
Grow full and plentiful
Flowers…
An abundance of colors.
You send so many visions to the mind!
A co-creator.
Impressive in every way
Even when you set
At the end of the day.
Hopes of seeing you tomorrow
Leaves a smile imprinted on my face.
I know tomorrow is going to be a good day

Lost and Blindsided

Lost and Blindsided

Sometimes…
U come to that fork in the road
And ur stuck as to which way
To go
U want to make an immediate decision
However…
U’ve been lost b4!
And hesitation…
Can cause a collision
Panic and fear kick in
Causing split decisions!
The road ur on…
Unknowing!
The scenery ….
Beautiful!
Outstandingly beautiful
However…
No signs in sight!
There4 u keep going…
Blinded by all the sites!
4getting whether or not
U chose the right path!
As night falls…
Out of nowhere…
A thick fog appears!
EVERYTHING…
Becomes damaging to the eyes
Exposing feelings of regret
No signs of light in sight!
This journey is becoming a stress!
U can’t seem to find a solution
To pierce the darkness !
Ur conscience tells u to backtrack
But now time is invested…
Ur heart says…
Keep moving ahead…
And PRAY…
That this dense fog lifts
And that the road I’m on…
And the path I should be on…
Will somehow intersect !
