Mental Runner

I try to follow the mantra "live in the present and not in the past" but the unknown scares me. So, I dwell in the past. It's not healthy, I know, but it's comforting. It's comforting and dangerous because that cushiony blanket of the past that protects me, keeps me from living the live I should be living. It stops me from being the person I could be, fabulous and all.

Tell Me I’m Beautiful

Tell me I’m precious like the expensive jewelry you always tend to keep safe.

Tell me you love me so that I don’t have to wonder where your heart truly lies.

Tell me you need me so I feel like I belong instead of unwanted.

Tell me you’ll be there even on my darkest days because I get depressed a lot and need a friendly face.

Tell me you understand that I need time during those days instead of saying that you don’t care.

Tell me I’m beautiful so I can see the beauty in me.

No Longer

From your soft hands and soft lips to every thought we shared, my heart belonged to you.
You made me laugh, you made me cry but now it is over.
There is no longer an us and a tiny feeling in me is happy about that.

Found

There are times we lose ourselves in the process of trying to fit in and please everyone.

There are times we lose ourselves when we try to change who we truly are. 

Then there are times when we lose ourselves just because we do not know who we are.

Lost in a world where everyone is mainly focused on themselves, only a few are willing to lend you a hand on your journey.

But sometimes even those that we think are genuine, are leeches behind screens, sucking you dry as you move along.

My Love For You

Your love is wide like the ocean and full of emotion.
When you smile you make me cry because you are beautiful like the sun.
Your lips are blue like berries, my lips are red like cherries and without you, there is no life for me.
