Silence 

Silent screams

over shadowing my thoughts of violence

searching for meaning

but it takes an evening

to witness a moment of silence

 

desparate for that quiet moment

silent cries for help

soul searching for answers

 

mixed emotions with

the sound of chaos and clashing

of voices...

at times it's hard to think

between the noise and my choices...

screaming silently

for that moment of silence

tears of pain

speaks on my behalf

as I gave them a license

 

juggling between work and home

feeling undervalued at work

and home

my pain is shown

through my awkward silence

living in my own mind

where I look forward to

that thought of silence...

 

Jump 

In my teens 

I discovered that 

flying was too difficult 

to comprehend

maybe it wasn't for me 

 

the turbulent chapters 

of my life 

left me fearful of falling 

 

until one day 

I picked up a parachute 

and jumped 

out of the plane 

 

leaving behind 

my luggage 

filled with disappointment 

and fear 

 

crash landing on 

an island of gratitude 

 

 

The Drop Off

For many years 

I carried heavy luggage 

under my wings 

 

failing to drop them off 

at every destination 

until one day 

I felt fatigued 

and free at the same time 

 

as I built up the courage 

to loosen my grip

Circadian Rhythm

No amount of melatonin

can make me get tired 

of you 

 

when I am 

with you

I feel awake 

rationalising insomnia 

as we become attuned 

 

my circadian rhythm 

is never out of sync 

picking up on 

your frequency 

and tuning in to you 

 

Blossom 

There are 

creaks in the floorboards 

sharp nails 

protruding from the ground 

 

spouting like wild flowers 

in a field of uncertainty 

 

yet I continue to stand 

my ground 

and blossom through 

the corroding earth 

 

 

 

Star Wars 

While others 

look to the stars 

I look towards our community 

 

among us lie stars 

that have fallen from grace 

seeking the sky 

 

wondering 

how to return home
