Today it took you until 3pm to get up and actually get your day started or to get out of bed. Congratulations, at least you made it that far. We need to give ourselves credit for the tasks we find difficult to complete. I also encourage you to write down those accomplishments and how it made you feel after defeating them. I haven’t written or completed anything in two months and it was beating me up inside. Every day I’ve been telling myself I won’t be successful with the rate that I’m going, but ultimately I’m setting myself up for failure because of the toxic thoughts. I know writing takes time and I really don’t want to put out bad content. So instead of beating myself any more than I already have, I will reward myself after completing this. Anything I put out that I expect people to grow and learn from I automatically appreciate it. I believe the tool is to love what you do, put in the effort and the rest will come. You may not be perfect, but acknowledging your bad habit is a great start to a happy beginning. Give yourself credit where it is due and take your time.

Veil

Veil

You pretend there isn’t a storm

Nothing to protect you from the rain and hail

You walk barefoot in the alley

Glass hidden in the cracks of the pavement

Penetrating the soles of your feet

You never complained

You took on the ocean

You never swam in anything deeper than 5ft

Yet you rode waves

shaping your own reality

Living freely

You never feared a thing

You said it never existed

It was all an illusion

I found your diary

Your fears were hidden in thin pages

Wrinkles on each

Written in cursive

Numbered

I was number one

Love like Honey

Love like Honey

Lips like honey

Locked with intentions

I bite and suck, not missing a drop

So sweet and soft

Leaving my thighs sticky

You follow the aroma

Nose suddenly buried in my flower

I bloomed on a sunny Thursday morning

Your acrylic nails grip my plump ass

Watching The dip in your back

The motion was in your bare hips

The vibrations between my lips as you moan

I inhale

Then release

On your sweet Lips, like honey

Inhuman

Inhuman

Stuck in the belly of something inhuman

Drowning me in its emptiness

Voices fill my auricle

Now my mind is infested with fear

Fear of leaving myself behind

No knowledge of time

Or measurement of love

Poison consumed to cope with the darkness

My mind is now a prison

Unable to reach any depth

Vision is blurred

Shedding the images of self worth

Words cut like chains; ripping through my soul

I fight back with fire

Smoke filling my lungs

In hopes of keeping me numb for as long as I am here

Swallowed, but I have made it my home

I am in human

Lightweight

Lightweight

Letting go is like floating on top of water

The waves crashing against my body

Opening my eyes to discover the ocean blue sky

The tightness in my muscles banish

My fingers and toes start to get tingle

I am suddenly so relaxed, I’m numb

My face begins to curve

I am suddenly smiling

Goosebumps appear all over my body

So fulfilled

So unbothered

And so at peace
