My knees feel the tension

I almost buckled 

My heart leapt from my throat 

I half cried and half chuckled

I told myself I had to start somewhere

And now is as any good of a time

So I closed my eyes and there I was

I took the chance

Hang Man

Outside he appeared to be jolly

Inside he was feeling hollow, empty

He could feel something creeping in his mind

It was dark, cruel, tempting, and unkind

He tried to ward it off, tried to fight it

But on days when he was awake and alone, he contemplated on it

Don’t think him too weak, it was a battle no one could see

It took over him so his life he took a finality

He bowed his head and there himself he hanged

The darkness he could no longer withstand 

Searching For True Love

We seek for true love

Yet we cannot give one

Do you understand now how it makes sense?

Time, Yes Time

Just a little more time

To take some more

We ask for more

Can’t afford any more

Time

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.

Closed Eyes

I held my hand out,

Touched the air.

I stepped out and saw the rain

The sun was hiding.

I felt my heart beat slowly, calmly

And with closed eyes I took the leap

Canvas

You took my heart and I ached

Because you never gave it back

Now I am floating

In space as blank as a canvas 

It’s a facade,
A defense mechanism,
It’s how I am when I get broken

It’s not to be pretentious
It’s more to stop the heartache
I don’t want to get into the whirlwind of hurt
I’ll let it slide

I get to choose, you see
I choose to smile and be happy
I may appear insensitive because of this
But if I let the pain win,
I’ll die for sure
Hence, I am taking it easy on myself

Heart on a string

How can you love without really loving?
How can you be so carefree?
How can you give and just take it all,
Without a second thought?
You put your heart out
But it’s all for show
Because you never really give it
Not even the slightest bit

I Couldn’t Take It

They told me I would never make it

Said it would be all in vain

Told me to give it all up

Because I was going nowhere

 

For a while I believed them

And thought that was the sad truth

But somehow I knew

I just had to give it a try

 

I took the beating

Faced what was given

Have not seen the end yet

But I would not want it any other way

For I know they’re all wrong

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
