Poetry- No time for this to happen

Updated on May 29, 2013

I find my piece in an unsure world


I am no longer afraid of who it is I am.


I love that you make me feel okay

There are few that make me laugh,

In the moments I want to cry.

There are few that stop to listen,

When I outpour the pain I hold inside.

You make me feel okay,

When everything is dark.

You allow me to let go of the hesitation,

I hold in my heart.

How did you break through the boundaries,

I created to keep you out?

Why did you stay and stick with me,

When I did everything to shut you out?

You’re very different than I thought,

So much different than whom else I’ve seen.

You have my full attention,

Because you took the time to see me.

There is not much I know I can offer,

I’m still sorting through my past.

I still doubt I am worth your time,

I’m afraid your feelings wont last.

I can’t say what this is,

I’m really not too sure.

But when I am with you,

I feel like I am in a better world.

It is like a new addiction,

A better poison for my heart.

As my pen hits the paper,

I write the words that have made my life into art.

No one here to impress,

I share a story with you.

It is okay if you don’t need to hear it,

I realize I often confuse you.

I am sorry for holding back,

Parts of who I am.

I know I don’t make things easy,

And there is no time for this to happen.

      The clear sleeves I use in my vdeios or what? I'll add those to toygamingemporium(dot)com one of these days but due to the weight of the packs, shipping will be pricey especially internationally. If buying just 1 pack shipping may be 2/3rds of the total cost

      mckbirdbks- There are days in which I wonder if the fear of letting oneself go will ever let up and let go of my emotions? Time shall tell. Thanks for the comment!

      Thank you Miss Brooks. I too am guilty of holding back (obviously), it is rarely intentional...but rather an effort to preserve who I am...
