For three years this day has haunted me.

I’d tear myself to pieces, 

Trying to escape my memories. 

My thoughts. 

Keeping a smile on my face for everyone,

While I died inside. 

But this year is different. 
They’re gone from inside my head,

My life,

Leaving a peace not felt in years.

And I’ll sleep well tonight. 

Chasing Words

Some people leave a silence,

That make you search for words;

Because you’re scared if you get it wrong,

They’ll go. 

I’ll tell you a secret, 

No matter how articulate you are,

They aren’t going to stay.  

So chose words that are yours,

That come from heart,

Not the ones you think they want,

And always be the unique you.
