I’ve dedicated many long hours putting this collection together with poems I have written over the past five years! You can now have one for you bookshelf here!
Sometimes I feel so weak and small
Like I’m hard to deal with and the baggage I carry is too much to haul.
My insecurities create issues
plummeting through the open sky
and all i ever do is cry.
Is your love big enough to carry me when I’m like this
I’m no quick fix, can’t just wish it all away with a single kiss
I need you more than you might know
So if you love me now, please don’t ever let me go
I’m SUPERRRRRR excited to be telling you all that I’m working on my
FIRST PUBLISHED POETRY COLLECTION!!!
It’s something I’ve been contemplating for many months and finally in January I decided I was going to actually go for it this time! I love poetry but I never expected I’d be on this path so you’re all surprised as I am. I’m nervous about it all but I know I just have to take the jump and face the unknown.
The book will be a 5 chapter journey of love and heartbreak. I’ll be incorporating 20 never before seen poems as well as new illustrations throughout the book!! I expect the book to be just over 100 pages and I am beyond excited for you to see it all! I’ll be self publishing and you can definitely expect some articles on my experience there.
I’m so happy to be sharing this passion project with all of you and will be updating you all along the way! Expect to get your hands on a copy THIS SUMMER!!! I’ll have more information and links as that time approaches.
I wish my love could heal you baby
take away every hurt
kiss away the pain
silence the worries
I wish my love was enough to save you
I wish my love could protect you from this cruel world
I wish my love could break your every fall
My love for you is so strong
and yet I feel so powerless
I know we fight
I know we don’t always get it right
I’m sorry I didn’t pick up your calls
It’s just that my mind was going crazy inside these walls
I’ve never had someone mean so much to me
Being this vulnerable can make me a little uneasy
Even if I cry, just know I always want to try
Even in cold weather, I’ll always want to stay together
I hope my love is…
your safe haven
your warm fire in the winter
your saving grace
your shady tree on a hot day
your shield in battle
your whiskey bottle after a hard day
You’re the one I’m thinking of tonight
because I’m feeling good, like I finally got life right
like when the sun is shining and the wind is on your face
but maybe the only thing I got right is you
and that’s enough for me baby.
You’re the one I think of on a rough night
when my chest is heavy and my head don’t feel right
like when you’re lost and afraid in the dark
but the moonlight guides you to the morning horizon.
because I want you and I need you baby
You’re the one
