The Stranger

the smile fades
as he walks through the door
a stranger he is
someone she doesn’t know anymore

she lives her life
so different than his own
always together
but living a world alone

words of anger
they filter through the room
hurting like a knife
lingering around in gloom

the walls close in
with every breath I take
suffocating me more
with every move I make

The smile fades
as he walks through the door
a stranger he is
someone she doesn’t know anymore

I can

I walk
on broken glass
just to feel
the pain

I listen
to the pouring rain
just to know
I am sane

I smile
into the sun
just to taste
the warmth

I touch
the stars in the sky
just to know
I am alive

I dream
in many vibrant colors
just to absorb
my place

I love
a million different ways
all because
I can

Friends

You come to me
when I need you most
when the world stops smiling
and the sun stops shining
There you are
to pick up the pieces of my
broken
incomplete
heart.
To listen to the words
that I manage to speak
and sometimes the thoughts
I manage to still dream
At times you are all I have
and at times that’s all I need

Please don’t look

I don’t remember
how my soul should feel to smile
for it’s been a lifetime ago
since it has

Please don’t look
into my eyes
for you’ll see all the pain I hide
all the tears
that I keep bottled up inside

Please don’t look
into my heart, for it’s sealed shut
from the world outside
from the truth … from the lies

Please don’t look
at me
for there is nothing left
but a cold empty shell
walking alone …
searching inside myself

I don’t remember
how my soul should feel to smile
for it’s been a lifetime ago
since it has.
