Movin' On

Poem By Brittany Daniel

Flew from the dark,
Rising with pain,
I dropped to my knees,
crying in shame,
Freedom, it was promised..
But thought never to come true..
I envisioned a goodbye,
but never from you.
I asked for permission,
but didn't think you'd give.
I wanted to move on,
I wanted to live.
I wanted so much,
but I didn't want goodbye.
But now that's it's done.
No tears can I cry...
I've cried for you too much..
and I won't cry no more.
I could have cut at my wrists,
but my heart is too sore.
Not broken, as I thought,
But bruised, nonetheless,
but bruises can heal...
I could have given you the best.
But now not for you.
No, for him I now give
the best of my love
My heart now in his hands, it lives.
So forget you,
I may sound hurt
but backstabbed, I am
so go back to her.
Live, now I can.

true love is when you can look at a picture of the guy you like and honestly wish his complete happiness.

and it's also when you can let go, and if he's truly yours he will come back, and not just because you are a last resort
or the other person he wanted didn't want him,


“You finally lost the race, ” I think to myself about the person sitting across from me. “But you don’t know it yet. Maybe you never knew to begin with.”

I can't stand being seen to squirm underneath a trance as I slightly raise the edge of my lip into a unnoticable sneer.
So sour a thought.


I'm back against the wall of my mind.
How could I have missed all of the signs?
Back to the grindstone
to grind down my heart.


I met a man
when I had a broken heart.
He became my friend
when things were falling apart.

Elizabeth, My Friend.

From the stars in the sky
to the white and blue seas below,
the beauty beyond compare
to those who know
