Poetry

So I wanted to mix up my post some instead of doing things about my life and fitness. One thing that I enjoy doing is writing (as you can tell by the blog).

I am not the best person at expressing myself. I have been hurt a few times. So I have gotten in the habit of bottling my emotions up. Even from my close friends and family. One of the hardest things for me is expressing how I feel sometimes. I’ve always been good at writing (from what people have told me). Whether it’s writing on here or writing poetry. I call it poetry, whether or not that’s what it is I am not exactly sure.

I feel like when I’m able to write that it is an escape/outlet and a way to get what I’m feeling off my chest. I had a laptop full of probably over 100 things that I had written. However, it was stolen a few years back. Normally, as I go about my day I will hear a song or when I get lost in my thoughts, something will come to me. I usually write it on the notes on my phone. Then transfer it to my laptop. I write about love, heartache, pain, life, the beach, and etc etc. Pretty much anything and everything.

I figure that I would share a few things that I wrote with all of you so you can get a better idea of what I am talking about. I wrote these 3 that I’m sharing with you all within the past few weeks. All 3 hold signficant meaning to me. Each are dedicated to someone. That’s for me to know and for y’all to wonder. I hope everyone enjoys them!

So Lost, So Faded

You were the light to my shadows

Was it all one big fantasy?

Dreaming about a future

Just you and me

Our aim was untrue

Where are you now?

I’m going under

I’m drowning

So lost, so faded

Don’t know what to do now

Like a burning desire

You set my heart on fire

Now these monsters run wild

I got nowhere to hide

Another broken dream

Where are you now?

I’m going under

I’m drowning

So lost, so faded

Don’t know what to do now

You were the shallow waters

That kept me afloat

But never met my shores

So lost, so faded

So lost, so faded

So lost, so faded

Where are you now?

I’m going under

I’m drowning

So lost, so faded

Don’t know what to do now

Now you’re the shadows to my light

It was all just imaginary

So lost, so faded

Easy To Fall For You

I know it’s only friendship

But I think you’re amazing

Your smile and your laugh

It’s so contagious

You make it so easy

Easy to fall for you

And God know it’s true

Every time we hang out

There is no doubt

It’s easy to fall for you

Dance up and down the aisle

Your personality has style

I’ll do a little dance too

Ooh, just look at you

You make it so easy

Easy to fall for you

And God knows it’s true

Every time we hang out

There is no doubt

It’s easy to fall for you

I don’t know how you feel

Would you want to take that step

A leap of faith with me

Cause I’m falling for you

You make it so easy

Easy to fall for you

And God knows it’s true

Every time we hang out

There is no doubt

It’s easy to fall for you

It’s easy, so easy to fall

I hope you feel it too

Let’s make the call

Into my arms is where you’ll fall

Take Me Back

Sipping on some Moscato

Wine was always your thing

Damn this head of mine

Replaying you in my mind

Like my favorite movie

Why does everything keep taking me back

To laying in my bed, tracing your tattoos

The days you cut my hair

The nights you stayed over

The memories, love, laughs we shared

Damn this DJ, he knows just what to play

To make me hurt like Hell

Every red car I see, I think I see you

Why does everything keep taking me back

To laying in my bed, tracing your tattoos

The days you cut my hair

The nights you stayed over

The memories, love, laughs we shared

Your lips pressed against mine

Your eyes giving me the green light

Being with you felt just right

I wish I could go back in time

Make all my wrongs all my rights

But there ain’t no way

To take me back

To laying in my bed, tracing your tattoos

The days you cut my hair

The nights you stayed over

The memories, love, laughs we shared

Damn these photographs

Damn these love notes

For taking me back

When she won’t take me

Won’t take me back

Again, thank you for taking the time to read this! I hope everyone enjoyed reading what I wrote and if anyone is able to connect with it then I’m glad and happy to share. If I get enough positive feedback, perhaps I will make this a regular thing. Sharing what I wrote. Let me know what you think! Thank you!
