I care enough to let go

Sea of Thoughts By Lindsay Rapp

There is no room for me

I’ve tried placing myself in your space

We just don’t fit

You want it your way and I need it mine

I always knew we would part ways

Just not with hate in our hearts

You want what’s mine

You want my time

You want my mind

You want all of me

I’ve expressed my concern of ownership,

And I am not one to conform

I want what’s mine

I need my time

I cherish my mind

All of me is not an option.

Baggage

Lost Suitcase By Mauel Garcia De La Cruz

Dealing with your trauma the best way I know how

Living and breathing on shells daily

Stuck under a rock and a wall you placed between us

Frozen at the front door of my own home

I see you working on demanding more of me

The look on your face when you think you’ve got it figured out

Afraid to let me in

I see the child and I want to set her free

But she can’t be freed here

En Route

To the young girl with the empty notepad

Exploring the unknown

Trying to find the words to express her hurt

Her sadness

Yet, forgiveness

The darkness that forced her to leave

A place that is now so foreign

A place which awakens her with memories of drifting away slowly, forever

She never takes enough

An emptiness that you can hear from the outside of her body

Hallow and silent

Her destination surely determines her fate

Veil

You pretend there isn’t a storm

Nothing to protect you from the rain and hail

You walk barefoot in the alley

Glass hidden in the cracks of the pavement

Penetrating the soles of your feet

You never complained

You took on the ocean

You never swam in anything deeper than 5ft

Yet you rode waves

shaping your own reality

Living freely

You never feared a thing

You said it never existed

It was all an illusion

I found your diary

Your fears were hidden in thin pages

Wrinkles on each

Written in cursive

Numbered

I was number one

Love like Honey

Lips like honey

Locked with intentions

I bite and suck, not missing a drop

So sweet and soft

Leaving my thighs sticky

You follow the aroma

Nose suddenly buried in my flower

I bloomed on a sunny Thursday morning

Your acrylic nails grip my plump ass

Watching The dip in your back

The motion was in your bare hips

The vibrations between my lips as you moan

I inhale

Then release

On your sweet Lips, like honey

Inhuman

Stuck in the belly of something inhuman

Drowning me in its emptiness

Voices fill my auricle

Now my mind is infested with fear

Fear of leaving myself behind

No knowledge of time

Or measurement of love

Poison consumed to cope with the darkness

My mind is now a prison

Unable to reach any depth

Vision is blurred

Shedding the images of self worth

Words cut like chains; ripping through my soul

I fight back with fire

Smoke filling my lungs

In hopes of keeping me numb for as long as I am here

Swallowed, but I have made it my home

I am in human

Lightweight

Letting go is like floating on top of water

The waves crashing against my body

Opening my eyes to discover the ocean blue sky

The tightness in my muscles banish

My fingers and toes start to tingle

I am suddenly so relaxed, I’m numb

My face begins to curve

I am suddenly smiling

Goosebumps appear all over my body

So fulfilled

So unbothered

And so at peace

Lost

How can you know me?

I barely know myself;

I know who I’m becoming

Lost

Dark rings around my eyes

Always searching for depth

Sucked dry of the small bit of energy I have left

Knees so weak

So tired of trying to find you
