OVERTHINKING
why can’t i stop thinking?
i know that no one cares about that little moment
but i keep replaying it
over and over and over
thinking about how i shouldn’t have
said that
done that
thought that
i swear to god i ruin everything
i wish that i could just
shut my brain off
things would be a whole lot easier,
ya know?

my happy place

Horizons
.
Just before nightfall
Shrouds the color of your thoughts
In tones that enthrall
All your senses as they've caught
.
Hold of a fresh dream
You'd let fall by the wayside
If it didn't seem
Much too soon to even try
.
To be free from hopes
You have not nurtured in vain
Facing life's steep slopes
Not always devoid of pain
.
As a thread of words
Becomes lost amidst the sights
Of the last few birds
That still dare take to the skies
.
Deep inside your heart
You won't let that take away
The glee that the stars
Have begun to bring your way
.
The daylight is gone,
Its last hues allowed to fade,
Hours before dawn's
still a promise to be made
.
When all that you see
Ought to bring you peace of mind,
Lull you into sleep
As emotions intertwined
.
With the air, now cold,
Cannot fail to warm your soul
The story's been told
And I wish I were so bold
.
Just to add one line
To the finished plot you read
Lying on cloud nine
As the heavens were still red
.

@lionolfwrites
Is this a feeling
or feelinglessness
am I seeing this vivid
or has this gone more blur
I've been asking myself
Trying to heal
Trying to rediscover myself
Trying to find beauty in everything
Trying to be the self I used be
before shattering
before breaking
before being used and thrown
before being called a boring game
that doesn't entertain them anymore
Trying to rebuild my castle
No longer a princess
Now a queen
Not with alluring attractiveness
but mystique Halo
that has power to destroy
yet to turn everything fine
My new world
Me and my halo
unrequited
unchangeable
unwanted
yet undiscovered 💕

Everything about him shimmers
His eyes,
His words,
His skin
He's not just beautiful
He's magic in human form
And I am forever bewitched.© -Marie Jo Schwarz

True love.

1💬

I don't allow myself to speak my truth. I don't allow myself to feel REAL feelings. I let people walk all over my little soul, and I never speak up, for fear of hurting them. For fear of decimating their feelings.
For fear that they just wouldn't stay. For fear that being who I am will never, ever simply be enough.

Excerpt.
Even my family boxes me in a cage, and with all my rage, I can never speak my truth. When someone makes me angry, I don't allow myself to be MAD. When someone hurts my feelings, I don't allow myself to be SAD. When someone treats me like garbage, I cry and wonder why I am never just GOOD ENOUGH.
Just good enough being me!
Why doesn't anyone see?
I am withering-
withering away.

For the love of my life, for the members of my family, for the friends that have never been real friends. I am losing my ability to be so generous in my understanding. I am starting to wonder why people treat me this way.
Now I know-
it's because I let them.

Happy 245th #literarybirthday to Samuel Taylor Coleridge!
🎉
.
.
Born in Devon, England, Coleridge was the son of Reverend John Coleridge, whom he idolized over his mother. He was a sickly youth, suffering from rheumatic fever. As a young adult, he attended Jesus College, Cambridge, winning the Browne Gold Medal (1792) for an ode on the slave trade. He joined the Royal Dragoons in 1793, but suffered from sever bouts of depression and was deemed ‘insane’ to continue enrollment in both college and the royal army. He married Sara Fricker out of social pressure and reared 4 children. He befriended the illustrious William Wordsworth at the turn of the 18th century and traveled to Germany. A stalwart scholar of German philosophy (Kant being his favorite subject), he devised famous Romantic poems “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” (1798) and “Kubla Khan” (1816) and was an acquaintance of Mary Shelley and the Gothic canon. He was an opiod addict later in life and died of heart failure and a compounded lung disorder. His poetic and philosophical legacy helped form the British Romantic canon and influenced Ralph Waldo Emerson and many others.
