“Its supposed to happen quick
In a moment
There and not there.
Nobody ever talks the drag,
Those that don’t get instant gratification.
Those that slip away into the doctors, monitors and medications,
And the family that waits silently, screaming on the inside
hoping and praying and wishing for a miracle on the outside.
Nobody ever talks about the drag
Those that don’t get instant gratification,
Waiting for Friday, like a promised vacation.”
“If only you saw me now as you did then,
if that desire still burned from so deep within.
Before you had me, when you still yearned
if only it were then
this would be my last concern.
Instead I’m old, she’s new
and my lesson is learned.”
“In a sunset I am reminded,
the sun will be back tomorrow
or the next day or the next
but the sun will always be back.”
“Do you ever look at a photo and see the feeling,
like the night before my two lovers lay,
and the news today
drowns me in an emotion of waves
like the necklace around my neck
lost its meaning
and I never knew today would be the last day,
my love for my lovers would be okay.”
“I saw it before I felt it
I looked at a picture of myself but didn’t see me
I knew it before I accepted it
I knew the person inside was the real me
but the person I reflected,
that person was beginning to kill me.”
“She looked as if she’d never seen before,
In a blink of an eye, what she saw once she saw more
giving life to a soul inside,
opening the door for the girl who can no longer hide.
Setting herself free, awaiting her love to be,
how this day would forever change thee. “
“I am often comforted by the words in the bathroom stalls,
I believe secrets are shared when they cant be traced,
Users protected by the bathroom walls
Writers anonymous to the words placed.
We find hope where we are most woke
This one of many, where we fill an empty space.”
