“Free”

I hate your hands on me,
but I’m just so blind to see.

You tear,
I bare.

Something’s not right,
I try with all my might…

But I just can’t fight.

This tug of war,
I don’t even know what I’m fighting for.

I’ve spoken,
and now everything is broken.

Release me,
I want to be free.

“Sane”

Don’t call me,
to check if I’m still sane.

The truth is,
I already hopped on the next train.

There is no way,
I want to appear in your lane.

The pain,
I can feel the wounds on my heart.

The drain,
I can feel everything sinking in.

The tears that leave a stain,
my eyes are red.

Don’t call me to check if I’m sane.

I’m not.

“Last Love Poem”

You didn’t want a forever.

All I wanted was to be together,
but you basically said “never”.

No more of my lipstick
on your neck
it’s making me sick.

No more of my letters,
please, take back all your sweaters.

No more “only for you”
when you actually
wouldn’t mind having two.

I can’t be the person you want me to be.

It kills me, it really does.

You won’t see me in a white dress,
I won’t see you at the end of the aisle,
we won’t say “I do”.

This is the last love poem
I’m writing for you.

“ADHD and Heartbreak”

ADHD and heartbreak is not a fun combination.

It’s what keeps you up at night,
tossing and turning
waiting for that hopeful text.

It’s what makes you wake up
bright and early every day,
wondering if that day will be the day
you can finally see them and say “hey”.

It’s all you think about,
people around you talk
but you hear nothing.

It’s the only thing you can write about,
you write thousands of words and
throw away hundreds of drafts.

It’s a box of letters hidden under your bed,
you know they’ll never read them.

It’s dialing their number on the phone,
and then hanging up
because you don’t know what to say.

It’s what makes you turn off the radio,
because every song is about them.

It’s what makes you stare at the ceiling
after a long day
and wonder what went wrong.

It’s blaming yourself,
even though it’s not your fault.

It’s what makes you stop reading
your novel,
and question
“Where’s my happy ending?”

It’s feeling happy one moment,
and then crying the next
because they’re not
there to celebrate with you.

But mostly,
it’s that empty space in your heart.

They’re the only thing that’s missing.

ADHD and heartbreak is not a fun combination.

“The Flame”

I have set up the logs,
please don’t blow out the flame.

You remind me of fire,
as our love is full of desire.

Time is ticking,
the flame may very well
die on its own.

But not if we keep lighting it.

I wait for you.
I pray for you.
I dream of you.
I make time for you.

Please do the same for me.

I have set up the logs,
please don’t blow out the flame.

“Delusional”

I could have sworn,
I woke up next to you this morning.

Maybe when you left with my heart,
you took my mind too.

Because this morning when I woke,
I turned around.

And your beautiful hazel eyes,
were still staring at me.

Your arms,
were still wrapped around me.

Your rough hands,
were still interlocked between
my delicate hands.

You were still running your fingers through my hair.
You were still whispering in my ear.

I giggled to myself.
What in the world was I laughing at?

I must have gone delusional.

Because as I shut my eyes,
and opened them again…

I realized you weren’t there.

“Real”

So many times,
in many rhymes,
I discussed the sadness of love that is “fake”.

But not anymore.

It seems like just yesterday,
he and I lay.

He pushed the hair away from my face,
and held me in his embrace.

I could feel his fingertips
trace the curves of my hips
as he kissed me with his lips.

Our pleasure is shown,
in the intense ways me moan.

His eyes dig into my soul,
he makes me feel whole.

What else can I say?

I don’t know anyone else who can make me feel…

real.

“Love to Love You”

I will never forget the day,
you looked my way.

Every time I look at you,
it’s like the first time.

Butterflies in our stomachs.
Love in our eyes.
Dimples on my cheeks.

We’ve come a long way.

Thank you for accepting me,
despite our differences.

Thank you for seeing my real beauty,
instead of what I cover with make-up.

Thank you for thinking I’m perfect,
despite my million flaws.

Thank you for loving me,
just the way I am.

No one understands,
I just really love to love you.

Eyes On Me

Temptation is around,

take good care of what you found.

I know in her there is a flame,

but if you go for it,

only you will be the one to blame.

I want to be the only one,

so keep your eyes on me.
