Assurance

High on the hills my lungs are full
air clear as spring water
not a single sound
but the hum of inner thoughts

It is time for the journey
to completely cast off
the weight of my acquaintances
to unearth the strayed self

To be a running girl on an island
the wind beneath her hair
an assurance of change
and wings strong enough for flight

Her Shade

I was blue yesterday
still blue today
tomorrow I’ll be neon
and still blue

I don’t change!!!

I speak the mind
say what is and what’s not
but you’re tuned
to another channel

Have I changed???

You wear fantasy like jewels
so impressive and entirely real
you fuck strangers on Tumblr
with dirty little phrases

Where’s the change???

I’m still blue
I’m flaunting me
my reality is not yours
and ‘that’ will never be okay

So what changed???

I’m a fierce girl
who loves her shade
and I’d laugh damn loud
if you tied me to a bed

Unlikely to change…

I’m not ugly
and neither are you
we’re just living in different colours
so excuse me
while I return to my blue world

Like Flowers

sky-clouds-sunlight-sunset-sunrise-flowers-fields-town-village-hamlet-buildings-houses-free-backgroundI remember our awkward days, when long walks in country air was all we could manage. No civil conversation, vacant of even a joke. Heavy sighs filled the void.

How good we were at saying nothing.

If only we could have been like flowers, rooted, secure, not caring, unafraid of change.
