It happened over night right underneath our nose We were told to stay inside It was he who made us blind Our rights were taken one by one Fear swept over this Country before anyone could run. The sheep were masked The people were shunned Everyone conformed until there were none. Stripping our rights away … Continue reading United We Fall
"Mom Fatigue" "Quarantine Fatigue" "My fatigue has fatigue" However you want to say it, one of us probably has it. Being home during this time has been a true blessing in disguise. I have recently had to stop reading every conspiracy theory and article floating around on my News Feed. The pandemic has managed to … Continue reading It’s Just Another Manic Mom-Day
Today, I found myself losing control of my frustrations. I was on the fast pace track to becoming ill with my children. It is easy to do. Let’s face it, we have been in the house together now for almost a month. I’ve lost track of the days so it could even be longer then … Continue reading Check on Your Friends:
Maybe it isn’t a break that I need Or possibly it was just to plant a new seed. I remember growing up with dreams But everything changed as I got older it seems. The reality of life will strike you to your core Until you aren’t aware of who you are anymore. I don’t remember … Continue reading Blue
My morning routine is usually always the same. I get up an hour before my kids so I can drink a cup of coffee and try to wake up before the morning chaos begins. I used to scroll through Facebook while I drank my coffee. Sadly, it is the epitome of past generations reading the … Continue reading Generation “Smart Phone”
Tiny hands and tiny toes These are by far the things that matter most. They hold on tight But not too close I will be sad when you don’t need me most. Your eyes light up when I walk into a room And as I walk away, you start to cry. I never knew I … Continue reading Never Grow Up
There once was a time When I was yours and you were mine. It doesn't seem like long ago. Sometimes I miss it and others I don't Because some things end when they can't go on. At first I thought it could be fixed But it turns out that was not our niche. You didn't … Continue reading Late Bloom
This was me. I was tired and I was restless. You don’t really think to relate those two words. When you are tired, you are down but when you are restless, you feel like you are all over the place. These words and feelings should never coincide. It is like constant fight or flight. It … Continue reading BLESSED + CURSED:
One day you find the one One that makes you forget the past Heals the quirks that made you go mad Keeps you sane Keeps you balanced Makes you better than you were before Makes you never ache for something more It’s a fulfillment that I didn’t know existed More and more I love you … Continue reading One day;
Life has a weird way of giving us everything we never need. They say it’s to build us up, and not break us down. It’s a never ending battle. It’s a slipping crown.
Never stop looking through me There are things that only you can see Your hands are the only ones I want to feel I reach for you until I stall My mind rushes through every move The words I wish you would say only leave you mute My love for you has more than grown … Continue reading Never Stop
My heart is like an empty terminal Sometimes it feels things too deeply Ruthless and threatening Tender but deafening Knowing whether to stay or go Seeing things for what they do not show Waiting in line to retrieve my ticket Constantly missing every minute It’s like the runway is far too long I never make … Continue reading Empty Terminal
You can’t love me But you use me You don’t see me You never knew me I’m not really here That was the old me. Fool me once but never twice. Our memories are now a distant whine.
Today I am invincible Tomorrow I am impossible Yesterday my world felt sad By Sunday it won’t be half bad Just wait for me I always come back around.
The darkness creeps past me upon every happy space. Sometimes I get stuck between a rock and a hard place. No one can reach me. I am not she who loves in such a selfless way. My world turns cold And I feel all alone Just keep me safe.
The truth is I could lie straight to your face. My words will not flutter, there will be no sign, not even a trace. I do not know how to be alone, I have never felt safe on my own. My good intentions always go to waste Because the truth can never escape.
Your words speak to me softly But my head suddenly screams. You’ll never understand why I think you are mad at me. Some say it is all in my head Some call it anxiety Some would say I am insecure You think that is obscure. They ask me why I can not just be happy … Continue reading Weaponed Words
