Unobstrusive

I stayed in the background letting you take center stage.

It’s what you needed.

It’s what I thought you wanted.

It’s what I thought I should do.

My needs took second fiddle.

They weren’t that important.

I was wrong.

You dick.

Evolution

fh

I slowly unwrapped the darkness from my shoulders.

My future, in the cards. It seems.

The possible, what is determined by me. It seems.

Is it?

I want the control.

Is it really mine?

A place to feel like you’ve arrived.

Do you have it?

I hope that for you.
A place to be free, and one of comfort.

“It will be the moment where you don’t wear a forced smile.”

It will be a feeling of content.

And security, richness, and volume.

Do you have it?

I want that, for you and me.

That gaze lightened my heaviness.
Those eyes told me I was safe.

Tender forcefulness reached in
and unearthed me from
the hardened layers of
self-imposed eradication.

You found out who I was
and loved me anyway.

Years of destruction erased.
You easily removed all the layers of my shame.
I felt unafraid in your embrace.

My hard callouses protected me,
you smoothed them out with your touch.
My bleeding open wounds
stitched up by your love.

I was healing.
I recovered.
I became sane.

Embracing

Life is an ever-changing plan of existence.

Let’s sing a song of acceptance, being perfect already.

The layers of uniqueness, whatever the condition,

Accept them, revel in them, love them, and Just Be you.

It’s not perfect, but it’s mine.

Beauty In An Ugly Place

Untitled

Awaken in you the love for yourself.

Rise up even more in the feelings of empathy and compassion.

Channel that goodness outwards.

Free others to feel the same in their skin.

Lift them up to greater heights.

Incite others to follow a path of love.

Your beauty will continue to become more elaborate but distinct.

Change the world until it becomes more inhabitable.
