Morning turns to day
Day to evening
Evening to night

Slowly the fire dies
The blood no longer drips
Onto the page
The way it did when we were kids

We are no longer the tortured youth
Spending days between classes
Wallowing in the mud
The blood no longer drains from our faces
And out of our wrists

Sunflowers bloom along our sidewalks
In lots previously populated by derelict dirt
From nothingness life has taken hold

But we remember our roots

Sometimes at night our demons return
Shrieking outside the bedroom window
But we have learned the value of a pane of glass
A warm bed
And a good nights rest

We have grown up
We have moved on
We have built something out of nothing

Now sitting here across from you
Sipping my warm tea
Reflecting
I see clearly
That we were never alone

We may not have known
At the time
That we swam with the dolphins

When our strength gave out
They pushed us to land
So we might gather new strength
New resolve
And swim again

You always lent a helping hand
Tucking me into blankets wove from sand
You cradled my head gently in angel wings
And watched carefully

Watched me grow
From sapling to majestic oak
Standing tall above the canopy
Out from the shaded ground below
So I may gaze into the sapphire sky
Strong
Does anyone even still follow me? It's been so long. I've missed you guys. Life is slowing down and I have time to devote to poetry now so I guess I'll be posting more frequently.

It's gonna be a while before my work is up to my standards though. I miss the passion and power I had in my older work. I guess it's something you can't force though.

It's also hard for me to write when I don't have someone I'm writing about but that's my own problem.

What was the point of this journal? To remind you guys I exist and to find out if you guys still exist.
Ribbon scars litter her forearms
Landmarks on the roadmap of her life
Her cheeks stained with the tears
Of a thousand sleepless nights

I cautiously draw near and inquire carefully

"Oh those?" she says "don't matter. You wouldn't understand anyway..."

Calmly I roll up my sleeve
Revealing marks my own
Cutting roads to nowhere
Revealing how alone
I've felt and cried through sleepless nights
See the marks on your skin? They match right up with mine.
So don't tell me I wouldn't know,
It's very clear I do.
I've lived through countless nights
And even tried to take my life.
Bit every day that sun did rise
And smile at my weary eyes.
It told me that I shouldn't die
No matter how much I'd like
To end my sorry, empty life

So I kept living
And each day come with more meaning

I'm not cured yet but each day is better than the last
So please tell me, are your scars your past
Or your present?

Because if they're past we are one
But if they're present then there's a reason
Our eyes met
There's a reason I'm here talking to you

So take my hand and I'll lead you
Through twilit meadows under the moon
And carry you to morning's light

Because the sun may set
But it will rise again
Your eyes caught mine from across the room
A spark of recognition
As I realized I knew you

You took my hand and lead me through fields
Of purple flowers
I picked them and wove them into a crown for you
Adorned with the moon
Which I plucked from the sky for you

You blushed and smiled as I placed it on your head
Then took your hand and lead
Us in dance to the minuet
Of nightfall

ASnd as our dance came to a close
I pulled you in close
And held you in my arms

I whispered to you "I've missed you"
You whispered back "I've missed you too"
The secret of my sorrow lies in the bottom of this bottle
Shot for shot I seek a solution

With each sip the burn slips down my throat
Destroying another piece of me

I drink to remember happiness
I drink to forget loneliness

Each sip, a hedonistic voyage to drunken debauchery
I reach to the bottle hoping your hand would stay mine
But it's no use
It's no use

The bottles pile up around me
Imprisoning my heart
Imprisoning my soul
Imprisoning my mind

I am as empty as the bottles around me
Does anyone even still follow me? It's been so long. I've missed you guys. Life is slowing down and I have time to devote to poetry now so I guess I'll be posting more frequently.

Oi, that's rough. I don't understand stalking. Or stalkers. It's one of the few things I'll never be able to understand.
