    Love Me Through It All

    in Short Love Poems

    love me
    through it all

    the beautiful days
    the dark days
    the days when I am drowning
    the days when I am lost
    the days when I am stagnant

    for it is love,
    and only love,
    that heals all wounds

    Your Wounds

    You Are Stronger Than Your Scars

    in Short Poems

    Time doesn’t heal wounds
    to make you forget.

    It doesn’t heal wounds to
    erase the memories.

    Time leaves you with a scar
    to remind you of how you fought through it.

    Time leaves you with a scar
    to remind you of how you bled

    and how you survived.

    You survived.

    And The World Carries On

    in Short Poems

    The plates will still shift
    and the clouds will still spew.
    The sun will slowly rise
    and the moon will follow too.

    Life’s beauty will continue
    to flourish all around,
    but now you are gone,
    these birds have no sound.

    And my heart does not beat.
    It is still inside my chest.
    My tears keep on falling
    and my head will not rest.

    But I have no choice only
    to move through this life.
    Endlessly attempting
    to fill this longing that is rife.

    Drowning

    in Short Poems

    They come in waves,
    my feelings for you.
    And not pretty whitecaps
    dancing at my feet.
    But when I least expect it.
    When life seems to be
    a quiet stream of continuity.
    They come to disrupt.
    So forceful they pull me under,
    so that I am drowning and once again,
    can’t catch my breath.

    You're Worthy And You Matter

    in Meaningful Poems

    You weren’t born
    to lose yourself
    within this darkness.

    You were born
    to rise,
    to shine,
    and thrive.

    You were born
    to live,
    to give,
    to love,
    and
    to be loved.

    Despite The Storms

    Finding Joy Once More

    in Short Poems

    Despite the storms,
    beauty arrives like
    it was always going to.
    Despite the darkness,
    the light returns.
    Despite your loss,
    your heart will be
    full again.
    Despite the breaking,
    your heart will feel
    like it belongs in the
    land of joy once more.
    This is how it will
    always be. Keep living.

    The Terrifying Thing About Love

    in Short Poems

    It is a terrifying thing
    to watch love
    walk in your direction
    when you believe
    you are not ready
    to receive it.

    In the same manner,

    it is quite terrifying
    watching love
    walk away from you
    when you are not yet ready
    to let go.

    This Is Your Time

    in Inspirational Poems

    This is your time
    to no longer be who you were,
    to rise from the embers,
    to be guided by Her.

    This is your time
    to be carried by Grace,
    out of the matrix
    and away from the race.

    This is your time
    to forever change the rest,
    to untame, to shift, to lead,
    and live blessed.

    She Is Magic

    in Courage Poems

    She wildly dances
    to the beat of her own heart
    a strong and fearless protector,
    she’s hauntingly beautiful
    and dangerously smart.
    Eyes filled with oceans
    and a glimmer of pain,
    but a soul with a compass
    that points home
    when it rains.
    She’s visited darkness
    and fought her way back
    this girl is a warrior,
    her spirit won’t crack.
    A sense of humor to balance
    how deep her heart bleeds,
    she’s a radiant light,
    that this dark world needs.
    She is poised and she’s polished
    but still can be rough,
    she is one of a kind,
    she is more than enough.

    Slow Down

    in Inspirational Poems

    slow down when your world
    is spinning too fast
    when day and night are stuck in dusk
    make sure to enjoy life
    soak in the sunshine
    admire the moonlight
    witness how the clouds gather
    and disperse
    how the wind chases the leaves
    across the street
    treasure the little moments
    that world will still spin
    but you won’t fall off for taking
    a well-deserved break

    More Than Enough

    in Relationship Poems

    Just tell her she is perfect in the dark
    her light shines
    so the whole world can see her heart
    hold her tight
    so she knows if she ever did fall
    you would be there to catch her
    you will be there through every storm
    love her fiercely
    including all her scars
    and if she is brave enough
    to stand in front of you
    broken and fragile
    make sure she knows
    she is more than enough

    She Loved Him

    in Love Forever Poems

    She loved him without reason
    and without cause
    she loved him under water
    and in the freezing cold of the deep winter months
    she loved him in the dark
    and beneath the starry sky
    she loved his hands
    and his innocent blue eyes
    she loved his heart and how big it always seemed to be
    she loved him even when things were a little stormy
    she loved him before they knew each other’s name
    and she will love him until
    she takes her last breath
    and her heart goes up in flames
