The Here and Now

Just a few words 
To express how I feel
Just a couple rhythms
To make my pain feel real

I write,  I draw,  I paint
Just to help me not to cry
I beg, I plead,  I whine
I laugh, tell me why

I'm lost in this world
Trying to find my  place
I long for the moment
To feel a smile on my face

If you only knew

When I first meet you
I still believed in love
The kind of sweet love
Only a little girl dreams of

When I first met you
It was like a dream come true
Nothing could stand in our way
I believed in us, I believed in you

I trusted you with all of me
I let you see this broken heart
I let you see this naked soul
You'd catch me if I fell apart 

I look back on those moments
And wonder how foolish could I be
Although I gave you my all
You didn't feel the same for me

That love that I was dreamed of
Is nothing more than a plaque on the wall
A decorative piece to fill in the space
Something cheap you buy at the mall 

And that's the end
No reason to cry or be sad
Something you took for granted
You'll never know what you had

Beauty in the scars

The scars on my heart
Seen by the slaches on my skin
To feel the pain
Rising from deep within

Death is not the wanting
Blackness is not the desire
Imagine of the blood
Could smoother the fire

She desperately reached out
In riddles and ryhms
Trying to put the pieces together
Of all the hard times

The thorn that twist and turn
As it punctures my side
No one hears me scream
All my silent cries

Finding myself

I had went looking for myself
Searching the places I'd hide
I thought I could ever hear 
Her innocent muffled cry

I looked in every room 
And behind every looked door
I felt she was waiting on me
Desperately wanting something more

I got lost in my prison 
In its walls that twist and turn
The deeper I went in
My skin would start to burn

Cofusion consumed me 
Things that's my flesh would crave
Little did I know, I was holding
The shovel that digs my crave

She knew I was coming 
And hid from me in that dark place
She didn't want me to see 
Her distorted wicked face

Demons now comforted her
For me, she would humbly pray
She wanted me to be at peace
For Grace to free me one day

BROTHERHOOD

I am surviving in the face of blood
       I can not seem to find the words 
         I need to say as I feel my way
          Through the faves of society
                 Only to change us
             As they laugh with apathy 
             They try to take our purity 
                And our reverence 
          They try to control us with
         Thier demented justifications 
    Of their way of saying they are right
        With their alternative motives 
         That they try so hard to hide
      with our tenacity we must endeavor 
     To audaciously stand up for ourselves
               Stand up for brotherhood

My Depression

I am lost within myself
I feel I can't break free
My thoughts and emotions are torturing me
I wishni could identify what "IT" is that is consuming me
All I know,  is IT is my enemy
For years now, this enemy has kept me in his eye sight
I've known him, even considered him a friend
Although I hated him
My addiction kept him at a distance
Men, sex, drugs, alcohol and self mutilation 
Even from afar, even when I thought he was gone
He would creep up and laybright beside me
At times I would even welcome him
Now I'm left alone to face him
Just me
I wanted desperately to fight him on my own
Although I knew IT was going to be hard
Cause I could feel his fingers on me
NOW?
Now Intel I'm losing the battle 
Cause I feel him completely wrapped around me
Mind, body, and soul
Even my heart 
He no longer just lays beside me At night
He has devoured me
Consumed me
I am he.. he is I 
I no longer have anyone to catch my tears
They are wasted and useless
I fight him all day
I'm screaming for comfort

Weakness


She kissed him goodbye
For the very last time
She help back tears
And told him she was fine
She felt his hand on her skin
Which was already cold
She'd go without a fight
Scars just a few hours old
He knew it was over
Only God could save her now
All he could do was watch
But he didn't know how
Wait for me he screams
But she barely hears his cries
Without hesitation he  grabs the 
blade, together they slowly dies

how can it be

how can it be 
that i sit here all alone
here in this house
that we call a home

we are so different
you and i
you sit so happy
as you watch me cry

ive asked you before
if i should just go
i dont feel i belong
you hate me i know

just be honest
let me know whats real
so full of games
pain is all i feel

Behind These Walls I Hide

Behind These Walls

Trapped behind these walls
I can't seem to break down
A princess in my own dark castle 
The queen without a crown

So lost and confused 
not knowing who is inside
So, I do only what I've done
Behind these walls I hide 

No one can hear me
If I don't have a voice
Silenced screams echo
This wasn't my choice

Afraid of any thing different
Trapped by fear and pride
So I do only what I've done
Behind these walls I hide

So, this is my prayer 
And this is my plea 
Let the darkness fade
Ans let me find me

My Father sees me
Searching for a home
A whole knew world awaits
Things I've never known 

Until then, I fight this battle 
That rages in my mind I
So, I do only what I've done
Behind these walls I hide

Love me
Sally Harris
