Starve

If I starve myself will you be kinder?

If I starve myself will you be nicer?

Will you treat me better?

Will you be just a little sweeter?

If I starve myself to meet your standards,

Will you accept me with arms wide open afterwards?

So I starve myself and I begin to deteriorate

My starvation, it accelerates

I drown and become lost

I only paid for my life, it’s not much of a cost.

At 30

She rejoices at being given the years

While most may equate age with fears.

She seems to walk with more flair

As if she’s dancing on air.

Her eyes of brown dance in the sun

A new age, a new decade, has begun.

I Am As I Am

I am bitter as I am sweet

I am clutter as I am neat

I am sadness as I am happy

I am darkness as I am sunny

I am madness as I am sane

Where I Am

I’m day dreaming

Always in a day dream

Never wanting for it to end

Always wanting to make it real

I’m stuck in space

Head in the clouds

Heart kept shut

And I float away

Knife

Just because you don’t see, doesn’t mean I don’t bleed

Just because I smile, doesn’t mean I’m fine

I’m covered with insecurities and every single day is a fight to stay alive

This knife, this invisible knife, it cuts deep and everyday I struggle to breathe.

Reflect

Look at the mirror

See a face

Sometimes I see the reflection of the real me

But oftentimes

She hides so far away that she’s out of reach

I’m Sad

I smile and sometimes laugh

But deep down I’m sad.

They see a bright and happy gal

But they don’t know I’m sad.

Not out loud, just secretly kept,

I am sad.

I play pretend and deny it to myself

But the truth is, I’m sad.

– Maria Michaela –

I wish they could see my tears,

I wish they could come face to face with my fears.

I wish they knew how it truly hurts,

So mean words they wouldn’t blurt.

I wish they’d know I’m dying inside,

And see past the smile shown outside.

I wish they’d know how much I hate myself….

….so they will stop

I wish they’d just stop!

See My Bones

Would you like to see what’s inside me?

See the scars left by society

They haven’t healed, I think they never will

For all the times in their presence I’ve always felt ill

Maybe that’s why I prefer to be alone

In solitude I have grown

By myself, nothing and no one breaks my bones.

Different

I was never precious or fragile

I was hardly sweet and often too agile

They complain that I’m too much

Others say I’m not enough, as just such

I would never settle and they just can’t understand

I am not theirs to command

I stand out in a world that is full of the-sameness

The Darkest Tunnel

Find yourself in the Chaos
