That is my vow

Standard

Collectively, Respectfully, Introspectively
You have to live it boldly
You have to live with vigorous reckless abandon
You have to tirelessly spin
In order to win
Win the race
Take first place
Because nobody knows
What’s gonna happen tomorrow
It may be joy and it may be sorrow
So I will borrow a phrase
From my mind
And remind myself and all of you
That here’s what I’ll do
I will rise up
I will rise like like a wave
I will rise up
In spite of the fear in my heart
I will understand
That what’s at stake is in the palm of my hand
So with vigorous reckless abandon
And deathly precision
I pursue my vision
To be, to live, to love
To be unapologetically whoever I want
And flaunt that I choose
To be happy and to heal that bruise
Of not knowing, I want to live for now
That is my vow

Star crossed lovers

Standard

There is no harm in star crossed lovers

Their story must be told

There is no harm in them

Because they are so bold

Their bravery and courage

And fierce hope instead

Of fear and despair

They minds haven’t been read

Because they trust each other

You cannot never tear them apart

Because these star crossed lovers

Well they share one heart

Because I have you

Standard

I could use some loving

The kind that is real and true

I could use some loving

Will it be from you?

I could use some loving and I don’t know what I’ll do

Because I’m fading fast

From that love him once gave me that wasn’t true

There was no love only poison which I drank

I drank down his words

So the lower I sank

Now my mind is blank

Except for thoughts that were untrue

Now I’m a little blue

But I’ll get over him too

I could use some loving

From someone who actually means it

Someone who isn’t just a good fit

Someone who really cares and understands

Someone to hold my face in their hands

And show me real love

Not falsehoods and ulterior motives

Just be gentle and genuine

Be my lover but also my best friend

Only then can we have no end

And withstand any storm

Because our fierce love will keep us warm

Keep us safe from harm

Because it was you that did charm me

Because I could use some loving

And you knew

So you held on tightly and stuck like glue

After all that you are, all that you do

I no longer need anything

Because I have you

Promises, but really lies

Standard

For the beginning the lie began to brew

The promise that “I’ll never hurt you”

I should have known then that it couldn’t be true

You fed me sweet sweet words

That realized that I didn’t pick

Was while you fed them to me

And the sugar made me sick

It coated my heart

And I loved you a lot

But all of the sugar

Caused me to be a fool

And my heart to corrode and rot

Today I’m saying goodbye

Standard

Drained of all air

You’re my greatest nightmare

Because at night I’m filled with dread and fright

Even though you’re not there

I still care and I’m scared

I let you in my life

And it cuts like a knife

That you won’t let me go

I said we shouldn’t be together but you said oh no

You tried to make me stay

You tried so things would go your way

Not today

Today I’m saying goodbye

To all your lies

To all false truths

To all forced things

To saying you love me

But making fun of me

By saying hurtful things

By not giving me straight answers

By saying there’s no one our there for me

All manipulation

Imagine my jubilation

Once I heal

Once you’re gone

Because without you

I’ll live it up a little more every day

I’m already seeing myself so differently

Just let go of me

And if you don’t

I’m going to cut the cord

I will leave

I will be strong

Your cruel words won’t be heard long

I cannot wait to be free

And find the opposite of you

Someone who lets me be me

Turn off the sun…

Standard

I want to turn off the sun and get swallowed up by darkness

Because every end has a new beginning

Because once I plunge to the abyss

I will rise like the Phoenix

Rare but not impossible

I know I’m ready

To be renewed into the best version of myself

When I’m really upset and all hope seems lost

When I’m too numb to cry any tears as I shake

I pretend that I can do this

That I can

Turn off the sun and get swallowed up by darkness
