Easy Love

If loving was easy

If to be loved were all that

Then why are there people 

Who still feel lonely all the time?

About Being Single

Every single day they tell me

Tease me

And sometimes it hurts me

Because a single word can be hurtful 

When every single time you are told

As if you do not feel a single emotion 

As if you are not smart enough to understand 

Because they think being single is a disappointment 

When truth is, their single mindedness 

Is the real problem

Crooked Smile

I wipe away my tears

And show them my smile that’s crooked

I hide away my fears

They will never know.
I sway and sing

Like the great pretender that I am

They don’t know the heartache it brings

When they laugh and talk behind me.
But I walk away stronger

And don’t mind the negatives

I come out to be bolder

They could never know.

How I Lost

She smiled

And that’s all it took

She had this seemingly innocent look

And thus he was gone from me

That One Word

One word to melt a heart

One word to break it

One word to tear it apart

One word to mend it

Four letters you can keep

Or simply let it slip away

Scars

You see me flawless, not a scratch

Not a mark

But deep inside is no match

As the color can sometimes be too dark

Kept within, no one will see

Screaming in silence

No one knows but me

Living day by day with resilience 
You see me go on, live on

As if nothing and no sadness can touch me

But like you I have my battles

And these scars are proof you too can make it

I’m No Super

They look at me as if I’m invincible

I bruise and I hurt

Deeply

I appear strong

Because I need to be

Because no one else will be

Count

Count the happines

Not the sadness

Count the heartbeats

Not the heartaches

Count the stars

Not your worries

Count your blessings

Always

The One’s I Broke

I told stories of how I got broken

But there seems to be one unspoken

Of those from the otherside.

 

Their feelings they told

Some wished that together we grow old

But I saw none of that for me.

 

Some had feelings that might have been true

Some just wanted to hear me say, “I love you too”

But I turned them all down.

 

What was it that I was searching for?

None of them had made a score

They were the wrong fit.

 

I feel sorry for the one’s I broke

I pray they find someone who can truly laugh at their jokes

I just knew, that would never be me.

Easier

Is it easier to hurt than to love?

Easier to promise the stars above

Than to just be kind to the needy.
Is it easier to walk away than to stay?

Easier to promise a better day

Than make one for someone.
Sometimes it’s easier to lose hope than be hopeful

Because the people now have made me doubtful 

And that’s a sad thing, I reckon.

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
