I am imprisoned in silence

Your insecurities

The prison guard

My body shudders in wordless screams

But you don’t hear


What I have to say matters

You won’t you listen

My thoughts are vast and deep

My heart cries out

Desperate for you

 To listen

Wisdom falls from my teeth

I am strong, I am kind

Why won’t you listen?

Longing for my heart to be seen

To be known

Drop the armor of your fear

Lay your head upon my breast and trust

Trust to listen

 Lay your head upon my breast and trust

My sweet words to heal you


Oh, please listen


Patchwork Girl

With each new break

A crack was created

Stitching myself back together

Determination the needle

Addiction, therapy, hope was the thread


I look at myself in the mirror

I see sadness etched into lines marring the grooves and planes of my face

Two deeply blue eyes gaze back

Deep in color and in soul

I see what this incarnation has imprinted on me


I continue to act as the seamstress of my soul

Sewing my heart and body back together

A patchwork sorrow, pain, happiness and goodness


It took the breaks and stiches to appreciate the uniqueness of me
