You stopped feeling the
Day she left.
Closed off and armor up,
You've called yourself
Numb and have vowed that
The world can't hurt you.

But the empath knows
That you can always be

It will sneak up on you
In the form of a friend
Or a lover and hit you,
Rip open the stitches of
The old wound, and walk
Away as you bleed.

I respect your right to
Hold your shield up and
Fight it with all you have.
Sometimes its just what we
Have to do to survive.

But I know, and yes, I know,
That when the guard is down
(and she will fall), that those
Years of blocking the world will
Come crashing in on you at once.

And that, my friend, will be
A tragic sight to behold.

Let yourself feel, if only
For a minute, the breeze on
Your face.
Let yourself taste sweetness, and
Bitterness, and everything in between.
Take a chance, and believe something
You've discarded from your heart.

You'll never know true joy, or
True heartache, until you
Give in to the desires
Of your soul.

It's what makes us human.
It's what makes us alive.
I lacked the courage to investigate the weaknesses of the wicked, because I discovered they are the same as the weaknesses of the saintly~Umberto Eco, Postscript to the Name of the Rose
There are some parts of us
That we should keep sacred.
The parts that are hidden
Are sometimes hidden for
Good reason.

I've every faith that
Being vulnerable to
You is probably okay.
But the part of me that
Is weak, is the part
You don't have faith in.

I don't claim to be
More than I am.
I only claim to be
Enough for you.
It's not about being
Strong. Strength lies in
The stories of the heroes.

I can be more than
What you need, and
Less than what you
Hoped for, all in the
Same twenty-four hours.

I'm no different than you,
But I'm different in every way.

This, my thoughts, my words,
Every feeling that is
Scrawled on the pages
Of my electronic journal,
Is now yours.

What will you do with it?
Parts of Me
Is vulnerability a mistake? Why do we choose to show the innermost parts of ourselves to a stranger? Is it a test to see if they are in for the long haul? Yes. Ultimately I think it is.
Current life course is set to the music of: Linkin Park, Mumford and Sons, Death Cab for Cutie, and Neon Trees. Sit down. Buckle in. Enjoy your ride.
Thistles and weeds,
Thistles and weeds...
Placed carefully to keep
Everyone else out, it's
Real purpose is finally
Making itself known.

The dark is harrowing
And scary... how can something
That I found so peaceful
Yesterday be so threatening today?

My ribs ache, and the pressure
I feel is crushing everything
Vital inside.

The stroke of a hand,
The hand of time,
The hand that caresses
The secrets in a hideaway heart.

The voice of reason is soft,
Not screaming at me like I deserve.

The kiss of your conscience
Lies on my cheek.

The only comfort I have
Is the music blaring from my
Radio, reminding me I belong
Nowhere and every ending is the same.

Roads untraveled.
Weep not for roads untraveled.

Nothing makes sense anymore.
The Drive Home
Props to Linkin Park, and Mumford and Sons for the playlist of my life. I would've fit Death Cab in there too, but they weren't angry enough. And here is..the poem that makes no sense.
