I'll Make It

February 26, 2021

Sometimes my world is quakin'

Sometimes I'm overthinkin'

Some days I feel I'm breakin' 

Some days I just can't take it

But I'm a tryer not a dyer

I know I'll make it

I'm a fighter I'm on fire

I can take it

I'm a climber after falling

Better believe it

I'll shake it

I'll make it

Sometimes the world is cold

The flowing words get old

They try to take control 

I'll be damned if I'll fit the mold

These bones crack but don't break

I own up to all of my mistakes

So they can throw all their hate

My heart might ache but I won't break

I'm a tryer not a dyer

I know I'll make it

I'm a fighter I'm on fire

I can take it

I'm a climber after falling

Better believe it

I'll shake it

I'll make it

The walls may start cavin'

I may struggle within 

But I'll dive right in

In the end I'll win

I'm a tryer not a dyer

I know I'll make it

I'm a fighter I'm on fire

I can take it

I'm a climber after falling

Better believe it

I'll shake it

I'll make it

Some days I'm overthinkin'

Some days I feel I'm breakin'

Some days the world around is quakin'

But never be mistaken

I'll shake it

I'll make it


The High

February 23, 2021

If your heart one day stopped beating 

Would you regret the words you said before leaving 

Or would you know I was there at all

Holding you up while you continued to fall

Oh you say you're sorry before the drugs run through your veins

Oh you say you love me before the high slips your mind away

When I was young I held you sleeping your pain away

Held myself up hoping you would be ok

Whispered into your ear it's gonna be ok

We're gonna be ok

The years have passed but I have grown

Held myself up while you ...

You Smile I Smile

February 11, 2021

Let the rain fall upon my skin

As the the moonlight hides from the sky

Close my eyes as the tears begin

Let it fall like the rain within 

Oh the storms can't decease without your smile

All I want is to be in your arms for a while

But your presence has sailed the miles

Across the rivers across the nile

All I want is for you to be here with me

In your presence of you and me

Oh I'll try to smile for you for a while 

Until you sail back to me from across the nile

When you smile I smile

Oh when you smile I smi...

My Love

February 4, 2021

There goes my heartbeat

At the sight of you

It's when our eyes meet

I get lost in you

The world could be in chaos all around

But you're here with me so I don't hear a sound

Except for the beat of your heartbeat

Your love keeps me steady on the ground

When I'm with you I'm safe and sound

When you're with me nothing can keep me down

My love it's you

My love with you I'm free

Home and free

My love it's true

I'm in love with you

Here's where my soul leaps

In the things that you do

When your arms wrap around me

I f...

Embrace the colors of the wind

Touch the stars with your heart

Hold the sacred love within

Let your heart never part

Gaze your eyes upon the moon

Feel the night take you in

Hold onto all that's true

Wave goodbye to what makes you bend

Take in all the beauty you're surrounded in

Let it give you wings to fly high like a bird

Flying through the clouds like a lover's kiss 

Sent through the skies like a thunderbird

And we'll find our saving grace here

As long as we embrace all that's dear

Flying high like a thu...

Wake Me From This Dream

January 22, 2021

Birdy in the night

Flying in the sky

Rain is beating down

But I don't hear a sound 

Darkness plays the grounds

Shadows all around 

Wake me from this dream

That's ripping through the seam

Trees are falling down

But still there is no sound

Body hanging down

There's blood drip at his crown

The cold is seeping into my skin

Memories are lurking like monsters within 

Somebody please wake me from this dream

Wake me from this dream

Sleep never comes easy

It's the nights that it takes me

To a dark place

To a place unsaf...

I'm Warm Here, In This Place

January 10, 2021

Daylight's fading as the sun is setting

My heart is beating as the winds are rising

Cold has settled in into its winter place

The last leaves have fallen like a gentle grace

But I'm warm here, in this place

Of you and I, in this loving space

And I hold you here, in this heart

That is with you, wherever you are

Stars are peeking as the moonlight shines

Can you feel my love sending like a satellite 

Across the miles into your warm embrace

Winter's cold but I'm warm in this place

Yes I'm warm here, in this ...

Pray for You

December 26, 2020

Silence in the room as you speak apon your news

Don't know if I believe you but you make it sound so good

Sober I'm relieved yet I wonder if you would choose

To stick to your recovery or will the reuse be your muse

You see the flesh peeled from these bones

The words would hit like shards of stones

With every high came the cyclone

Scarred my heart like you've never known

So forgive me if your words don't hit home

Forgive me if it's hard to see past deception

I love you but your sobriety is unknown

And yo...

Just a Simple Poem (Another Sleepless Night)

November 25, 2020

There are no cars in the streets

No sunlight in the sky

Only the quiet in defeat

In silence do we meet

The peace of the night

Has reached its peak

I lay beneath the willows

As they hold still though

No breeze in the night

No dancing in sight

They remain still

As if there's no place to go

I hold myself close

As thoughts do their will

I watch the pond

How I've grown fond

Of its nightly appeal

As if it knows how I feel

In nature we smile

In nature we cry

When no one's around

We befriend the ground

I'm alone but I'm n...

The Broken

November 21, 2020

Hold onto your faith oh so they say

Spew their words of grace lying to your face

As a poor man watches everyone passing by

Isn't it funny all the things people claim

While they turn a cheek in his broken space

Saying kindness is the only way

But words are senseless in your wake

Leaving a broken man there to die 

And the faithful will continue to ask why

They never see a broken man cry

Maybe you shouldn't look the other way

Change your perception in the steps you take

If you lost everything upon your wake...

About Me

Teresa I have a love for writing and reading. I created this website to share what goes on in this strange mind of mine and to express. I'm inspired by the imperfections in our world as those imperfections in humanity and life are what's real and true as well as beautiful. We all have our ups and downs and no matter how young or old we are, rich, poor, where we come from, our hearts beat the same and I think we all are on the same boat of striving for our dreams, love, happiness and hopefully compassion for one another. Thanks for visiting.
