Weakest To Strongest

Poem By Autumn Christina Adair

Finally, I can breathe easy
Something I've longed for, for so long
My eyes are dry and my throat is clear

I still don't have you here to squeeze me
And it still feels a little bit wrong
But you are in my soul, you are still here

I used to think that all I am, was what you made me
But all I was, is only a fraction of what I've become
I have hope again, I have faith

My mind still tries to wonder to you, you see
I tighten the leash, trying not to torture myself
My heart is healing and to jeopardise this would prove fatal

I empty the contents of my life unto the table
They think I was born brave but little do they know
I had to lose every ounce of my strength,
I had to crawl from the lowest point
I had to fight the devils of my past
To watch my heart break as I wept every day
I once had to be the weakest, to become the strongest

There I Am

My physical expressions give me away
They triumph over what I want to say
I feel the wrath of my insane pain
Constantly contradicting myself at every turn

As My Eyes Close

I’m walking down a long, narrow, cold corridor
The hairs on my neck stand strong with each step
I see a dark, familiar figure waiting at the end
As I edge closer with caution, I recognise this person

Calm Before The Storm

Mediocre phrases, sting like frost bite
Waves of emotion run through my vessels
My system shuts down, my breaths descending
Raw skin around my darkened red eyes

Hurt Me Once Shame On You, Hurt Me Twice Shame On Me

His eyes whispered goodbye as he slipped away
My cheeks trickled, my heart turned black
Like a terminal illness he stole my life away
Emptiness laughed in my face and to the ground I went

Lost And Drained

I’ve loved twice in my short life
And I’ve been abandoned twice aswell
My little heart has broken down and it cant take no more
My cries fall on ignorant ears

Let My Family Have They'Re Daughter

I’ve loved twice in my short life
And I’ve been abandoned twice aswell
My little heart has broken down and it cant take no more
My cries fall on ignorant ears
