Birthday.

I wanna eat the whole cake

Birthday blues without you

First one where you are in heaven for

Oh how I wish you were there to hear me brag about the upcoming moment

How important this day was for me but now it feels like nothing without you

Oh how I wish I saw you that morning

I wish I said I love you one more final time

How can I talk about my birthday

How can I enjoy my birthday

Birthday blues without you

Your birthday is exactly three months from mine

Same day buddies I miss your shine grandma

I love you very much

Here’s to a birthday without you here physically

But forever in my heart

Social Media Image.

To eat or not to eat, that is the query

To fit into the model image

The struggles of losing a huge amount of weight in a short period of time

The pressure from the media, from your peers

To have someone say you are pretty for a fat girl

To be tired of reaching down and on the edge of ripping your soul from your seams

To not care about the side effects as long as you can comfortably wear the latest trends

Being confident while feeling sick

To be on the highway of a fast dream but not being able to survive once you reach the exit

My dear to eat or not to eat, that is the query

Dolls.

Turn your back

That’s when they come to play

Mama Jen reaches for her flask

Uncle Ben goes down to line up a track

Little Sara and Ken running around chasing hens

Put that light on and everything goes back to place

Looking in at their perfect faces but turn out those lights

That’s when they come to play

Daddy Phil is bandaging his bruised knuckles

Mama Jen needs about 8 more drinks

Her perfect body is cracking

No one sees the pain even these pure dolls can break

Everyday Ish

You are panicking

sweat drops

You were relaxing and suddenly all the hair on your arms are at full attention

You hear every little movement made around you

You look around trying to remember where that vital device is

Your ears start burning or maybe it’s ringing

Your chest get a little tight while your tummy is in knots

Why can’t you find it?

Did it fall under the bed, get lost in the never ending bottom on the side of the couch cushions or maybe borrowed?

Your heart finally slows as you smile while placing your hand around your…..

phone charger

But yet if someone were to ask you for aid

Will you give that much energy to a love one that you do to electronic distractions?

Will you immediately jump up, heart racing and eager to accomplish

Or is that too far below your standards to even cause a prompting

Think about it next time you have a

LOw BaTTerY

Tired

Tired

Over worked

Underpaid

Struggling to do three jobs in one

More like five

Maybe six

Listen

Listen to me

If I’m not here who would run this place

You will notice the small things the small things I do to make this place great

Appreciate the things you take for granted

Those tears and hard work is to make a greater future

But who will be there to wipe the tears away while you doing so

Who can I reach out to talk to for advice if your not here here

But you there there making my future

Is there a point where you want the person to work hard for a good life but want them there to live it with you in the present

I do Lord

I do

When I fall down who can bandage me up

Not the parent who is always at work or in bed

But I need to be grateful so I will fall back

I appreciate you but your not the only one

Tired

Putting on a Show with Feels

The pain in this world

Where in order to co-exist we must sit behind screens to communicate

To express

Love, hate and pain

Where we can no longer reach out for a hug without questioning where the other person been

A world where you must cover up your expressions with a mask

But the joke is on them

I been wearing a mask years before this era

A mask that I wore for so long I forgot who I am as a person

A mask that hides my inner thoughts, my demons

Oh I am so putting on a show with feelings

This society is turning chaotic

Can’t trust anyone who can’t trust themselves

So I guess that means you can’t trust me

But why would I care

I’m still stuck wearing this mask under a mask

Now tell me how does that make you feel
