Take Away

Take Away

Take away my things
Take away my pride
Take away my smile
Take away my laugh
Take away my self-respect
Take away my courage
Take away my love
Take away my happiness
Take away my tears
Take away my truth
Take away my friends
Take away my sanctuary
Take away my sanity
Take away my music
Take away my breath
Take away my soul
Take away my life

Take away everything I am but that only
Takes away my love for you

September 21st – Falling Apart

Falling Apart

Fall apart, World
Go ahead
Watch me care
Are you crumble around me
Watch me laugh
At your icy silence
Watch me grow stronger
When you hurt me
What me hold the tears
As you let sorrow rain
Watch me do it all alone
If you take away my friends
Go ahead, World
Watch me fall apart

August 7th – Smile

Smile

I’d forgotten how to smile so wide
That each corner touched the sky
And my cheeks hurt
But I didn’t care
As my teeth shone white
Reflecting the sun’s rays
And my laughter came deep from my throat
With such force that I tipped my head back
While clapping my hands with delight
And in that second
I couldn’t believe
I’d forgotten how to smile so wide
