    I've never thought of her as perfect. But she was the closest I've ever been to knowing what it means to belong. The truth is, I still don't know what love means, but when I hear the word, I think of her.

    She Makes Me Whole

    in Short Love Poems

    I don’t think
    she is perfect.
    She is flawed and broken
    like the rest of us.
    But the pieces she has
    left of her heart
    match the pieces
    missing from mine.
    She is not perfect
    but she does
    make me whole.

    A New Day

    in Meaningful Poems

    One day it will
    dawn on you.
    You have always
    found a way to rise.
    You are already
    the miracle you seek.
    You are worthy of joy.
    You are worthy of peace.
    Yes, one day it will
    dawn on you just
    how precious your
    life is and that
    you are worth
    fighting for.

    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

    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

    Hope

    in Hope Poems

    Hope can be found in the moment
    when the sun breaks open the day
    it can be felt when the stars shine
    in the darkest part of the night
    and when a flower has grown without rain
    hope is the thread
    that ties the words together
    when I write poetry
    hope is the reason
    you’ve survived
    it lives between each heart beat
    and it’s in the air you breathe

    You never know the state of someone’s heart. Aching hearts may not look broken, but you have no idea what’s gone into that healing. Be kind, always.

    Aching Hearts

    in Short Sad Poems

    We talk a lot about broken hearts.
    But oh,
    what about the aching ones?
    The hearts that are healing
    but can’t escape the visits of the
    cold, sharp
    pain gripping their core.
    The hearts that appear
    whole again
    but still experience
    the waves of hurt
    crash against their soul’s door.

    Whenever you were next to me, there was no rest of the world. There were no stars painting light to the darkness, no wind at our backs, no birdsong in the trees. To me, there was only ever you.
    Even now, things slow down and pause when I think of you. There are still those little sections of lost time, where everything is drowned out by those unanswerable questions about what might have been.

    When You're Next To Me

    in Short Love Poems

    The world seems
    somehow slower
    when you are
    next to me.
    As though my senses
    cannot focus
    on anything
    but you.

    I Promise

    in Love Forever Poems

    I’ll love you
    like you’ve never been
    loved before
    With all my core
    As time goes on
    I’ll love you more and more
    No matter what life has in store

    I’ll be patient, I’ll be kind,
    I’ll be here to ease your mind
    I’ll be honest, I’ll be loyal
    I’ll do everything to ensure
    this love doesn’t spoil

    I spend an inordinate amount of time in front of an empty page, or a computer screen. In part, because I’m terrified of being forgotten, of living a life that isn’t worth remembering. So I’m constantly trying to leave something behind, be it poetry, fiction, art or music. While this makes me feel better about dying, there is a part of me that wonders how much I’m missing out on. That wonders about how I’m choosing to spend my time in the light. This poem is featured in my debut book Tell The Birds She’s Gone.

    Choose How You Spend Your Time

    in Short Poems

    You cannot
    slow the setting
    of the sun.
    You can only choose
    how to spend
    your time
    in the light.
