To your mind

To your heart.

May no one take you for granted!

The Solitude

That felt like hundred years had gone by

Since she last talked to anyone or spent time

with them.

She had got lost in her books and music and

When she looked up so much time had gone by

That she couldn’t believe her eyes of the

In the mirror looking back at her was the same girl

From last month, time away had aged her and not

In a good way.

Maybe all the solitude she had wanted, hadn’t been what

She needed and it was time to go back  to society and,face

The reality she’s hiding from.

My Heart

Is alone when it’s hunting

For anything that will make it

Beat fast again.

I know the time will come

But for now I will hunt alone.

And maybe one day the hunt

Will become a chase that last a lifetime

Of my heart beating to the same beat as yours

Whoever you are.

The bag was full

And then there was nothing left,

his hand reaches in searching for more.

But comes up empty and he can’t believe

he ate them all.

Just twenty chips, the serving size for one and

yet he ate them all in one serving and hadn’t seen

it coming.

With nothing left to eat he was still starving for something

to full him up.

But nothing seem to come of these empty calories and, so he had

no solution to his problem.

But to find something that would turn his nothing into something

worth eating.

Water&Chocolate is what I need!

When I’m thirsty water is all  I need

But when I want something sweet, I crave

Chocolate and not just any kind for I  want it all.

But, I know too much chocolate isn’t always

A good thing  and I don’t like every type of chocolate

like dark chocolate just too bitter for me.

But I like milk chocolate, white chocolate.

And like water the chocolate melts down my throat as I savior

each bite.

Like water chocolate is a fresh delicious thing to put in my body

and, I’m sure as a child if my mother said to like water for a piece of


I would drink every last drop of that water just to have a taste of that

chocolate,my sweet tooth craved for just in that moment I would be content.

The Shadow that follows me

It was a windy day and as the sky got dark

All I  could see was shadows everywhere.

Shadows on the tall office buildings as I

walked past them as fast as my little legs could carry me.

But as I walked past them, they begun to pull towards me

Snaking cross the ground as fast as  they could go.

I didn’t know if I would make it to my apartment before

they got me, aren’t shadows suppose to be friendly?

Why are they following me and do I even want to find out

At this point ?

Probably not, as I swipe my card I’m in the building and I pull

The door closed just as the shadows  roll up.

When it didn’t come in I was relieved, for I was finally safe

As the shadows disappeared with a blink of my  eye I

Wonder if the wind was playing a trick on me and the shadows

Were just in my head?

That night you were

So patient and kind to me, you we’re earlier

I didn’t think I deserved the tendering touch.

You were giving me, for earlier I had been so cruel.

I yelled at you for forgetting something, I later discovered

I never told you to get.

For the text was never sent ,you should be mad out me for being

so upset when you won’t in the wrong.

But you just stood there looking so calm and, when I was done

you walked up to me and hugged me and said you’d go get it now.

You left and thirty minutes later you came back with the treat

I was craving and,you kissed me on the head and said everything will be okay.

I thanked you for going out and, said I was sorry for yelling for it was my fault you never got the text.

You said it’s okay and next time you will check in before coming home just in case I needed something on your way home.

And I realized that night just how lucky I am and,how crazy you’re to stick around and love me no matter what.
