Just stay safe

We are alive and we learn,
Nothing has ended yet,
Our pains might be difficult,
But struggle is a sign of life.

If you need a stranger to listen,
To problems you can’t tell your friend,
I’m here, I’ll listen,
But let me do the same with my poems.

We might be islands separated by seas,
But we have bridges and ears,
We suffer and we push through,
We are not alone and we are loved.

We are not invisible,
But our struggles might go unnoticed,
So we reach out,
To faraway ears.

We are not alone,
We are in pain but we are alive,
There is tomorrow when you reach out,
Talk to a friend or stranger.

Sometimes we need protection,
Not from external injuries,
Sometimes for emotional pain,
Often, from our own selves.

To have a partner

If my emotions explode from compression,
How much energy will it release?
All this anger, loneliness and fear,
What will I feel after?

Will I feel satisfied?
Will I feel better?
Because I can’t shout and my ways are blocked,
I chose myself, but what’s left of it?

Even if I express it,
There will be no one to comfort me,
No one’s warmth,
No one’s arms around me,

So why did I struggle,
When all I’ll get was this howling destruction?
Just tears and an empty table,
To eat meals just by myself.

I did this for me but why did it hurt me the most?
The loneliness and anger with no outlet to escape,
Even when sympathies are offered, there is no respite.
It just hurts, everyday, I’m reminded I’m on my own.

I don’t want him anymore, that much I know,
But I want some of what we had, intimacy and comfort,
The warmth and company, the history no one can recreate,
And no matter how I yearn for it, it’s gone.

If there is someone out there who is just right for me,
Can’t you come now?
Before I implode from this pain,
Because I need you but I can’t find you.

My silence

I wish to live for myself,
To have a will of my own,
To not be manipulated,
To simply do as I please.

I will have happy hours,
Reading book after book,
Steady white noise,
With turning pages for interruption.

To play all the music I wish,
To say what I want,
To be who I want,
I have no need for your expectations,

I am my own woman,
And I will live my life,
I will claim this silence,
It’s beautiful without you.

Your future is yours alone

I will be your pillar of support,
I will never lift my hand against you,
I will always be your ally,
Please confide in me and love me too.

I will give you all that I can,
My wealth, my time and my health,
I will do my best to live,
As long as I can to stay with you.

I will hold your hand when you are unstable,
I will help you up when you fall,
I will keep you warm and happy,
As much as my strength allows.

I will do all this and more,
All I ask is love in return,
I will not ask you to reciprocate,
I just want you to be happy.

Let’s live better

All our food with empty promises,
Easing hunger while choking our lives,
Added salt with a lot of sugar,
Nothing but all unnatural.

We feed it to ourselves,
We cook it and present it,
We eat it and share it,
Living our shorter lives.

All these killers,
Hiding in plain sight,
Mixed in our food,
Mixing with our blood,

Why do we do this to ourselves?
Easy access and long deaths,
Let’s work harder for ourselves,
Better food and better moods.

This time let’s aim,
To be better and cleaner,
Healthier food and lifestyle,
Better lives and habits.

Happy things

I want to write happy things,
A love story of rich feelings,
Happy endings and well wishes,
A lot of hugs and kisses.

I want to live a happy life,
Surrounded by books and sweets,
With a lover, without strife,
No poverty on the streets.

I want to give a happy love,
To lost children and lots of pets,
Happy days around the globe,
Making memories, no regrets.

I want to give you happiness,
To live for you and smile for you,
Give your life flavor and no mess,
And I’ll promise to be true.
