Mirror Mirror

More often than not

I find myself watching my own reflection in the mirror

For hours and hours

Acting out how I’m gonna end things with you

When in actuality I’m telling everyone that we’re doing great

Even you

You think we’re doing great

Everyone believes in us

But me

I can’t help but be uneasy

Panicked and freaked out

Scared to death

So I practice and practice

Yell and scream and point fingers at myself in the mirror

Then as I walk towards the door

I chant a silent prayer for God to keep me sane

I chant a silent prayer for Him to end my pain

Almighty

I believe with every ounce of my soul and my being

That God will reveal you to me

No matter what you’re trying to hide

No matter how hard you try to tip-toe your way around me and run circles around your past

I will figure you out

Because He will guide me

He will not do me unjustly

Because He knows how hard I’ve fought to stand tall on my feet today after all the dickheads I’ve struggled with my whole life

God will guide me

He will guide me

Because I believe in Him

And I believe that only He has my back

Now, and forever..

Heads-Up

If they are stingy with their words, odds are they are stingy with everything else

Love, affection, care, and money

If a word means so much to them

Words, haha, the things we throw around the most on the planet

The things we don’t even think of or account for

(I tell you I miss you every single day without giving it a single thought..)

If your words need to undergo a hundred screening processes

To be filtered and re-filtered

To be evaluated, calculated, budgeted and re-budgeted

If you would like to hold on to your leverage THAT hard

Then I can only imagine how much more

Just HOW MUCH MORE

you would like holding onto your love, your possessions, your touch, your heart, and everything else that you have to offer

So thank you, baby,

Your silence and stinginess are the best warning I could have ever asked for.

You Deserve A Forever

I wish I could write this without these annoying tears running down my face.

My dream, my safety, my one, my only.

I could and I would and I will cry rivers for you.

Because you deserve an ocean.

You deserve a galaxy.

You deserve a universe and much more than just that.

You deserve an eternity.

The one thing I couldn’t give to you.

A forever.

The one thing I can’t grant you.

I tried… I tried so hard to give you love.

All the love that I had and all the love that I knew existed.

I tried, my love.

My guardian, my prince, my best friend, my soulmate, my everything… I tried.

I thought I could make it work.

I thought I had everything under control.

What I didn’t have under control was how much I was growing fond of you.

How much I got addicted to your existence.

How badly I wanted to run my hands through your hair.

I lost control of everything.

My time, your time, our time together.

My fate, your fate, our fate together.

I lost control of everything around me as I dedicated my life to cracking jokes…

Just so that I can hear you laugh

Have a glimpse at your dimples just for two seconds

Oh how I’ve missed your laugh

“Come closer” to my heart, it beckons.

My dear, my sweetheart, my charmer,

Please bare with me.

It breaks my heart so bad to feel this way

It breaks my heart to have you go through what I’m going through

I sympathize with you because you feel what I feel too

We are apart yet I’m not complaining
Yet I’m not liking it yet I’m thankful
Yet I’m miserable yet I wouldn’t have it any other way
Yet I’m trying to think straight yet I think I’ve lost my mind

If I know one thing… It’s that I love you

If I know another thing… It’s that I can’t do this but I want to

I completely understand if it’s hard to believe or decipher

I know I’m typing in code

-.– — ..- / .- .-. . / – …. . / .-.. — …- . / — ..-. / — -.– / .-.. .. ..-. .

Morse isn’t better than me

What about my code?
Funny you’re asking
Even I don’t have it figured out

All I know is that fate will do what it does best

Decide for me.

I’ll be by the shore…

Pouring rivers into the sea

Trying so hard to turn it into an ocean

Although an ocean it will never be

No matter the effort and emotion

No matter whether I beg or plea

I could give him all my devotion

But I always fail to a certain degree

I crave his presence with every motion

My heart skips a beat with his glee

He healed my heart like magic potion

Kept the lock and threw the key

So tell me, if you really loved something,

Would you have the heart to set it free?

What If

What if you weren’t the worst person I ever came across in my entire life

What if your bad intentions had some good in them

What if you stayed

What if you had another side to you that I never knew

A nice side

A side that was not rude and disrespectful

A side that was sane

Human

Decent

Sweet

Loving

A side that was not you

What if you were not you

What if I’m going out of my fucking mind

What if you drove me crazy

What if I start thinking in a ‘what if’ kind of manner

What if you actually loved me

A tiny bit more

What if I deserved it

What if I was better

Prettier, smarter, nicer, a tiny bit more charming

Would it make any difference? 

What if this was all a dream

Or a nightmare

Please wake me up

What if I go back to smoking

What if my head stops turning

What if my head stops hurting

What if the room stops spinning 

For just one second.. one second

Please make it stop

What if I see you again next year

What if I never go back to the way I was before I met you

What if my soul never heals

What if I stay broken

What if I never believe in love again

But what if I survive

What if I strive

What if I stay alive?
