A Fractured Mirror
"I cut scars on my soul too deep for eyes to see to let out demons darker than blood- regret, doubt, and fear."

"You don’t know what you really have until you’ve lost it…treat every nugget of life, love, and joy as your last, because one day, it could become exactly that. You could lose her tomorrow; he could leave you the next day. You could die tomorrow, or in fifty years’ time. Treasure happiness, and always try to make it last. Life is a mere shadow of an existence without happiness; don’t let it slip unappreciated through your fingers, clutching at it when it’s too late."

My muse is my sadness
and my ink is stained blue-
perhaps my joy is the reason
my arm has lain dormant
upon this unwritten page
for so long.

If I were a poker player,
you would be the
last hand I play,
where I go
all in

"We only part
to meet again."

Hey guys! I’m so sorry for not posting in awhile, words are harder to come now…I’m happy. I truly am; it’s been awhile since I felt that way, but I’m happy and sometimes…sometimes, whenever I’m with her, I’m giddy…when I hold her in my arms, or put my arm around her, or cover her hand in mine, I feel at the top of the world…So yeah, sorry for not posting as much; I feel as if my words flow more freely with my sadness, as that is how most of my writing’s been- I’ll try to post a bit more from now on- have a great night!

- E.S.

Before you,
I craved sleep
to dream of just
one night with you.
I lay next to you
unable to sleep,
for fear of waking up
from the dream this
must be…

this is it."

I refrain from adding
anything to the end of
“I love you” when
I say it to you,
because “very much”
and “so much”
only detract meaning
from those three words.
Three words are
all I need to tell you
that I love you more
than anything extra words
can tell you.

"I love you."

And that is all.
"Nobody loves you
like I do."
