Can’t you see it’s still me behind this mask.
I thought you would see through this version of me.
Just believe there are good intentions behind this.
I know that the road to hell is paved with good intentions
but I am paving my road back to me. Can’t you hear
these tired steps that I am taking?
I have been staring at this piece of paper forever.
I can’t pick up the pen and write a single line.
Maybe I’ve lost my way with words.
Maybe I just lost my feelings for you.
Maybe you left my system after all those years
of writing only about my memories of you.
Guys, we just reached a milestone. We have 1000 posts published! Thanks so much to each and every one of you liking, commenting, submitting your work for our guest post categories. I just hope that in the future our family will grow and grow even bigger.
I know I haven’t published any original work lately, but to be quite honest I have a bit of a writer’s block. I have no inspiration whatsoever to write. In the past when I tried to force it, it would only get worse so I am just giving myself some time. I know that inspiration always appears in unexpected places.
A new family
No one knows me
A different room
This house isn’t home
Picked up and removed
They have no clue
My brother is gone
Can’t even call on the phone
A million tragedies
Locked inside of me
Remember smile and be polite
Complete strangers judging
Examined under the light
Imperfection in plain sight
Confused, damaged and all alone
Scary visions feel more like home
Different than them
Only demons live within
Surviving the darkness
Hungry and cold
Sleeping on a bed of stone
Down by the river as viciousness unfolds
#savingme is the column where abuse victims can publish their experiences just to let go and find comfort and support. Maybe it doesn’t feel like much but just publishing your story for others to read makes you strong. You can send your story about the abuse you went through to firstname.lastname@example.org and you can choose if you want it to be anonymous or not. More details here.
While you are judging
Others are suffering
Silence is a killer
We all just want to be accepted
If negativity leads your words
Sometimes that’s all that is needed
It could save a life
Something so simple
Hearing the words that we are scared to say
These will love us to death
You have the opportunity to help someone
Aren’t we all seeking the same
Be the change
Accept without limitations
