The Abyss – A Collaboration

Thank you again Christopher for this incredible opportunity to write with you again. Looking forward to part 2! Please follow his blog at https://divingdeepwithchristopher.wordpress.com

she sits
in the darkness
of the night
alone
inside the obscurity
of her cold mind
beneath the cold surface
where her screams
are silent
where her dreams
are the inner voice
of violence
here there is no help
to fight the demons
who torture her
tormented soul
in the abyss
frozen in the
paralysis of fear
she weeps
a thousand tears
that no one can
hear
wishing to faintly
disappear
from hearing these
twisted words they
proclaim
as they replay
her tragic past
whispering the madness
into her ears
reminding her of
the unspoken tragedy
these diabolical
memories
locked tight inside
the confines
of her heart
longing to be forsaken
from this prison
but never meant
to escape
or so they say
to shine outside
into the
beaming light

Perfectly imperfect

My wish is that you find within yourself the peace and strength to know that you are fine just the way you are. You don’t need to be more than someone you’re not or less than the person you are. You only need to be YOU. Regardless of how the world responds to you.

My wish is that you see in yourself what is truly there. A strong, confident, incredible person. A tenacious soul with faults and scars, someone who doesn’t hide them and works hard each day to turn them into something they can be proud of.

Just remember, I’ll be rooting for you.  I SEE YOU. Be yourself, be YOU, be the beautiful soul that is already deep inside of you, the real you. I SEE YOU.

Saturday Love

Happy weekend my creative souls.

I hope that in this very moment, in this very existence here upon this earth, that you all are grateful for today, for now. Life is only but a blink of an eye, it’s over before we even realize. I know at times we can get too stuck in the past and worry about the future (I’m guilty of this too) but the past is done and the future isn’t here. We need to be right here in this very moment. The right now. Make today the best that you can. Be kind to others and most importantly, be kind to yourself.

To all those battling addictions, mental illnesses, and all the other demons. I see you. You’re not alone. I SEE YOU.

Inside my daydream

I want you
to hold you tight
until your hurt is gone
until you can let go
I want to taste you
on my mind
enjoying every part
of your fire
I want
to consume you
to see myself
upon your beautiful smile
I want to feel
the beating
of your heart
in my veins
in every part
of my being
I want to
ebb and flow
with you
getting lost
within each other

Inside these moments

It’s moments like these that steal your breath away. The quietness of the morning, before the world fully wakes. The way the fog settles in, waiting for the sun to chase it away.

It’s in these moments that you find answers, you find peace and solitude. You find a strength you never knew you had. Forgiveness seems a little easier, the pain seems a little less.

These moments are more than the image to me. These moments are for dreaming, for falling in love with the one person who knows your soul. For learning, growing and discovering.

These are the moments, that matter the most in this world. Right here, right now. YOU are worthy, YOU are beautiful and YOU are more than enough!

Saturday vibes and randomness

Love comes in many ways, many forms and on many levels. To love and be loved in return is the greatest blessing, no matter what form. As long as it’s real.

Once you start peeling back the layers you really start to see your truth, your worth and your strength. With layers comes balance. In order to love and accept others, you must learn to love yourself first.

I know that’s easier said than done, but if you can get past the surface, you’ll find it.

It all starts with you. Be beautiful, be YOU
