Dark Star

Circling around and around
expecting the same result
without changing a step
learning that’s how hearts
are broken

Choosing to continue on
is the story of a true warrior
that finds hope even
when the world feels dark
and your soul feels lost

Reaching so far out
that your body loses control
and you almost slip off the ledge
that leads you back to the place
where you feel weighted down
too broken to exist
questioning how people find the sun
when all you feel is rain

Speaking in metaphors
and broken sentences
is sometimes easier
than speaking the words
that grow deep-rooted,
full of gloom in your mind

Still desiring to loath the cynics
but the surrounding world
is making it hard for a romantic
to hold out for the hope
that once burned so brightly within

Dreamers march on
believing that the sun will rise again
and the darkness they feel will fade
the real heroes in this lifetime
are the ones who still believe in love
even in a world full of hate

Blindsided

By- Traci Taylor

Blindsided by the possibility
that in this life
second chances are real

Years of feeling breathless
seemingly lost on a path
going around in circles

Moments like this
are my proof that
romance trumps cynicism

The only fools in this world
exist because they let go
before they had been pulled from the ledge

As long as the moonlight
sparkles upon the illuminate ocean
the promise of the tide will prevail
