POETRY; MORE THAN WORDS

POETRY; MORE THAN WORDS

My heart has been crippled
My mind drowning in it thoughts
And my soul slipping away
All by the things I hid inside for so long.

But going through the pain
I found something true
(And) My heart is melted in
Cause for the very first time
Something finally doesn’t feel vain

In it, I’ve fallen and lost myself without regrets or shame.
Time feels frozen here!
This is love!
What they say or think about it cannot pull me away

I finally found something deep enough to contain all of my burdening existence,
Worthy enough to open myself to,
And I won’t let that slip away
Even when the voices in my head talk loud,
Try to fill me with doubts and drain me out,
I wont be pulled away.

My new found love is my new found truth
And my heart is cut open by it cause I finally see myself.
I’m finally able to wear all of my scars for everyone to see
Without fear or shame of my brokenness.

So, I won’t stop
I won’t stop my heart from bleeding on bare sheets
I won’t stop writing; for the only truth that is not vain
My new found love which my heart finally opens up to
The truth that has finally given my soul closure
The truth in which I tell of my reality and live my dreams
That truth that’s deeper than the oceans
Is POETRY
