For Your Interpretation

I left. With one foot off the last step And my hand sticking to the railing, I let my foot touch ground. This was a new beginning. But I was scared. For so long, I have tried to live like everybody else. I tried to keep my outbursts in check. I tried and failed again…

A Superfluous Dream

Last night I returned to a place that is familiar. My old neighborhood looks the same, only more animated, louder, and more colorful. Jenny was still that chubby little girl bringing me on one of her random excursions. I am 24 years old and find it hard to keep up with her. We whiz past my…

Pacifying Panic

I don’t want to think anymore. As I watch the walls close in and the sounds fade to white noise, I can tell you’re questioning what’s going on inside my mind. Still, with the madness inching outward, grappling for you, you hold me still as I’m uncontrollably shaking in your grasp. You change the subject,…

Chasing Tails

Humanity is like a dog chasing his tail. Once we get what we want, we become bored and start the chase all over again. And no one seems to mind, the busy bustling in the process. The incessant loss of time The faces we hold in our minds become more like faded photographs as we…

Stone. Cold. Silence.

The whispering echoes reverberated amongst the wide room   Piano keys softly chimed accompanied by baritone singing   Outside that room the tranquil sounds are muffled with laughter and raucous coughing   Soft swishing sounds and a gust of breeze greet you at the doors and yelling interrupts your calm   Instantly, there’s squirrels chattering,…

Remember When?

    Amid the falling snow a mystery unlocked in her mind.   Sounds of baseballs flying through air and soccer balls too.   Amid the gentle burn of hot chocolate the memories begin to entwine with the sweet taste.   Laughter echoes, footprints that will never cover no matter the volume of snowfall or…

Heart Weighed Like a Stone

Heart Weighed Like a Stone Winter’s wind is seemingly whipping through me. The bright light from the snow’s reflection is too much for my tired eyes. Although the view is magical, the reality is dismal. As ice crystals soar past, I catch a glimpse of isolated light. My train of thought is broken. I’m somewhere…

Tore Down Your Studio

  You paint a nice picture. You’re such an expert liar. You contact me with such urgency, only to bring up the past of me and you. You can’t see I’ve had enough? You can’t see that the person you once new is dead and gone?! I’ve washed my hands of the guilt you imposed…

Negative Reinforcement

Impatient they’ve grown with this existence, blaming the stars and cursing the universe for having them exist at all. They feel plagued, that their creators are puppeteers, pulling their strings and guiding them in all the wrong directions. They resent all they’ve known and ever will come to know, as they feel they can’t mimic…

Night/Day

  It’s the end of day and I’m thinking of things to do. Why do I bother when everything is dull in this place? It seems that as of late, there’s always someone at blame. In this household, there is a messed up puzzle. Everyone is angry and disheveled. Is it so wrong to want…

The Upside to Gravity

  Back flat on the mattress and my heart is pounding. I know it’s not a heart attack simply because this has been a frequent re occurrence and I’m still remaining. I’m here but sometimes barely. My reality is frightful at times because I’m not always in the actual state of so called “reality.” I…

The Night Whispers

Distant thoughts coming to the surface. I’ve finally found that piece of mind that has been avoiding me for so long. It’s been running so far to the back of my oldest memories. It’s gotten a little dusty. It’s a friendly little reminder, a ghost of who I used to be. I used to resent…

Let What’s Been Done Be Finished

Forgiven but you’re not forgotten because you just won’t let it die. Why are you still contacting me and pretending like you’re concerned?! I wish you could just realize that I don’t love you anymore. You had your chance and you blew it. You took all that I told you and let it into the…

Gone But Not Forgotten; Gone But Still Here

Outside of my head at this instant the trees are dancing in the flickering of car lights as we go whizzing past it’s so easy to forget in an instant everything regret.. not so easy these burning memories and images soar through my mind when I awaken anger, bitter, heartache broken and still smiling face…

Worthy

It was two years ago that I let you down greatly. You tried to forgive me but eventually you gave up. I tried to make it up to you. I tried to be friends but it was too much and the friendship ended. You’ve taught me a great deal about life and showed me I…

Early Morning Inspiration~BrittnyLee aka DawningCreativity

I can’t believe I’ve forgotten this. It’s been so long since I’ve fallen into this hole. It’s been so good that I’ve forgotten what it feels like to be a kid. I’ve forgotten who I used to be. I’ve pushed her aside for so long, running away from who I was and am. I am…

Stone Wall

You’ve made me. Now I am breaking me so I can start all over again. I know why it is that I cry and cry and never understand. Too many times I’ve watched your car pull out of its secure space to the great unknown. You’re gone 6 days out of the week and I…
