giving a part of you to another is risky; sometimes they colors blend, and sometimes it's all mess. written by jaceycaitlynspeaks ©2017 daily prompt: Risky
thorny foes lie beneath the beauty of the red, red rose. drawing crimson; when all she meant was to protect herself, she leaves you stricken. daily prompt: Thorny written by jaceycaitlynspeaks ©2017 photo found on pinterest
cringing at the thought of missing out on the sunny side of the road.
what if it is all an illusion?
what if commitment to it’s path leads to waiting disappointment?
and locals calloused, unwilling to accept new travelers?
oh, how the wheels of doubt, fear, and insecurity spin out the mind
puncture this paper heart. turn the volume down; i am not a paragon of perfection, and i never will be. stop them from meddling with my blossoms as they push through the ashes. cut the strings that loop and tangle. taper this fear; lengthen the peace. permeate the bottled up emotions and let relief pour out of the top. "create in me a clean heart" a total restoration. triumphant, i will be. poem by jaceycaitlynspeaks © 2017 photo taken by bryan gonzalez
kicking and screaming
on the cusp of twenty-four.
when will i grow up?
