Only sometimes

sometimes
the words flow
like liquid
through my veins
sometimes
empty like
this vast world
without love
sometimes
bright as the sun
upon my skin
sometimes
dark and edgy
like the nights secret
but always
the truth
that lives
in the deepest
part of my fibers

Back to you

I fall into
the sweet silence
of the night
darkness comes
as comfort
to my naked soul
drifting between
here and there
to the edge
and back again
the universe
has a way
of bringing me
back to you
each night
no matter where
in time we are

Behind glass doors

her eyes struggle
to open
as the sun
peeks though
the broken windows
memories haunt her
to her core
but the scars
she still wears
behind glass doors
this little girl
still trapped between
these paper walls
where her secrets
still live
