Let the moon dance on your skin
grant it access
let it sink in deep,
let it wash all your anxieties,
soaking you washing you clean,
leaving you with bare bones.
Feel the darkness be wiped away
feel your body become whole again,
let your fingertips be kissed
and don’t pull back,
welcome this soul cleansing,
this is what we all need,
to show that we all need love,
show we all need comfort,
to be rid of any anxieties,
we need to be washed
let our bones soak in the moonlight.
Last night I forgave myself,
it was something I had never done before,
something that I never thought would happen,
something that came out of nowhere.
Last night I forgave myself,
for all of the harsh words I once spoke
the words that I spoke to my body,
the words that I spoke to my mind,
the words that I spoke to my heart.
Last night I finally forgave myself
and told my reflection in the mirror
that I would never do such a thing again,
I finally forgave myself,
and now, I am content.
Creatures so tall they become inhuman,
covered with copious amounts of fur
and teeth the size of sharks,
it’s no wonder why we all shudder,
these creatures have become the monsters of tales,
yet are they the true monsters we should hide from?
Slicked black hair and piercing eyes,
watching our every move
as they move about in disguise,
these creatures are very much human
and the ones we should be afraid of,
for they are the ones who wield more power
then the creatures from ancient legends,
they are the true monsters of the night.
She was made of broken pieces
ones that were placed together by faith,
faith in herself,
faith in humanity,
faith in the fact that she would never shatter.
Sure, she was terrified that someone might try,
try to shatter her dreams,
shatter the love she bore,
shatter her entire being,
but that didn’t matter,
she still had faith in herself.
It doesn’t matter how bright the moon shines,
you still linger,
linger in my memories,
desperately trying to drown me.
My only sorrow is that I have yet to
make a friend out of you,
and I don’t know what to do,
I need to know how to make amends
with the monsters in my head,
before the sun rises for another day.
It is always nothing
yet it is everything,
the stillness in the sadness leaps forward
trying to capture me as I fall slowly
as everybody becomes blurry
and I become nothing but a distant memory.
The area is completely clear
showcasing the distant stars to the right
and jagged rocks to the left,
making me wonder which side I’ll jump,
which side will welcome my presence.
Never know until I take the leap,
Never know until I move my feet,
here it goes,
here I go into the unknown.
Proceed with extreme caution,
one more step and they’ll put on the parental locks.
They don’t want to speak of it,
they dont want to have the discussion,
no they just want to push it aside,
and add more stigma on it.
What are you afraid of?
Afraid to acknowledge it?
Afraid to admit you were wrong about it?
Stop telling everyone that there is something wrong with us,
that we require to be treated as though we are dolls.
No, instead say it,
I dare you,
say the two words,
