For You

How can a love so strong exist?

My chest aches when I try to define it,

The world stops when I am beside you,

How can I put words to such a feeling?

Your eyes of innocence blind me,

Your gentle touch breaks every part of me,

Your beauty weakens me,

How is such purity possible in this devastating world?

To say I love you will never be enough,

To say you make this world a better place is too little,

You are my soul, my heart,

Without you, love would be but a word free from meaning,

You are love, and you are perfectly impossible.

Look at Me Now

Far too often I overlook

myself

the day

the people around,

Of all the important things

I overlook change the most,

but time, sometimes

presents us with opportunities

to look

to live

to feel,

I am no longer the girl

the one you knew

no

I am me

someone older,

but new,

with eyes wide

heart open

and a mind so changed

with a desire to learn

to see more

learn more

feel more,

Look at me now

the woman of my own making

with a hand from those I love

the ones who are there

whenever

whatever

forever,

I will not overlook

today is my chance

to create a greater tomorrow

a bigger smile

a fuller heart,

just look at me now world

who would have thought this is where I would be?

Bed Sheet Terrors

It’s too hot under the covers
Just kick them to the side,
But without their protection
How will you survive?

The hands the claws the teeth,
Are waiting for your skin
One wrong move and you’ll be gone,
Crawling deep within.

Sweet dreams my darling angel,
Even if it is too hot
Keep covered up and cosy,
Or in its belly you will rot!
