Daydream

I’m looking through the bus’ window

The traffic is frozen in time

I’m lost in thought while the people around me

Converse with one another

I’m listening to the sounds of my soul

The notes of my heart drum in my ears

Everything I am

Is still unknown to myself

I’m diving in trying to find any kind of light

I want to dress myself up in stars

And travel through the galaxies

Touching the sparkles

And they won’t burn me.

Don’t give up

in the dark, you ask to see
but it seems like no one can
hear your desperate plea
so you want to give up
but there’s so many things
to consider so you can’t
let it go, you have to keep
running even if you can’t
see where you are going
just have faith that you will find
put your headphones on and ignore
the rest, just keep moving
forward without stopping
handle this weight like a
champion did once in the past
hold it like no one else can
for you, like you are protecting
innocents from having to do so
so keep putting one foot in front
of the other, in the dark
you asked to see but actually
you should ask for strength
to keep going.

stop

too much expectation
i don’t care anymore, i’ve been
weighted down one too many times
by those guilt filling eyes

so i’m gonna take my stuff
and i’m gonna gather my courage
to finally leave this place behind
to by my own rules live my life

i no longer care about what you think
because this is me, this is who i am
if you don’t like it, better leave
you wouldn’t change for me either

so the reason i’m leaving is this
my heart was broken and shattered
because i was trying to please
but none of that ever mattered

not to you, no, never even did
all you cared for was for someone
to fix you, but i’m broken myself
so i’m gonna put a stop to this.

dark trees

are you there?
are you okay?
do you want me
to leave?
please say
no

a lot of things happening around us
but you
stay hidden
behind the cover
behind the fog

the black forest
lays on top of me
darkness threatens
to overwhelm everything

please say something
please tell me
where is the wound
so i can heal

don’t be silent.

carpe diem

the old saying goes
if you don’t know
just enjoy it
everything will turn out fine

but maybe we won’t be fine
and the sky will fall on top of us
maybe we’ll trip over a rock
and the road will split

but i can’t think about it now
i can’t worry, you say,
so i try my best to stop myself
from trying to read the stars

so just come with me
even if our walk is clumsy
i will try my best not to let you fall
we’ve got at least this end

taken care of
