Poetry

I Made it

I have no words to express
My relief, after the madness.
My hope had completely died,
But somehow I was revived.

I made it out the other side alive,
I don’t even know how or why.
All I know is that I have to keep
Moving forward, and not look back.

I left so much wreckage behind me,
It’s crazy that I’m in one piece now.
I picked up my pieces, one by one,
Even though it seemed impossible.

Poetry

Ocean of Words

You pretend like you don’t know,
And you act like nothing’s wrong,
And I do the same.

An ocean of unspoken words
Lies between us, and so we
Make strained small talk.

On our minds are words we don’t
Dare speak, and issues too gigantic
To wrap our minds around.
