    To decompose
    Is thought to mean break apart
    Or degrade something
    Until it is unrecognizable

    But in it’s simplest form
    It means to undo
    To wash away what was once there
    So that something new may grow

    And on that thought
    I think it’s time
    For myself to
    Decompose

  • Maci_M commented on the post, secluded 5 years, 11 months ago

    Alone
    In a quite place
    A safe place

    Full of wonder
    Mystery
    Joy

    Heartbreak

    Where I can forget my life
    And all the problems
    It is surrounded by

    And instead
    Take up the life of a hero
    Or a villain

    Or maybe somebody who just isn’t me

    Secluded
    Lost in the pages
    Lost in another world

    Shy and quite
    She sits in a corner
    Looking
    Observing

    At the people around her
    Who smiles
    Who laughs
    And who

    Doesn’t

    Taking in everything
    Carefully though
    So as not to get hurt
    By what she believes the people are

    Until someone gets too close
    And she lets them in
    When she doesn’t act quiet so shy
    And she begins to hope…[Read more]

    “You are more than a pretty face”

    Sometimes I forget that
    Sometimes I forget that I can feel
    And think
    And cry

    Or laugh

    I forget to stand tall
    With my shoulders back
    And my face towards the sky

    But I remember that one night
    So long ago

    And I try to be the person you thought I was then

  • Maci_M commented on the post, truth 6 years, 2 months ago

    I used to think
    The truth could never fully harm me
    Yes it would sting
    Or even burn

    But the burn would fade
    And heal
    And leave me whole
    Happy with knowing

    Then I met you
    And created a fantasy world
    That I would try to run away from
    But I kept being drawn to it

    Until I learned the truth
    And now your name burns in my mind
    It…[Read more]

  • Maci_M commented on the post, bleeding 6 years, 2 months ago

    Drops pour from my hands
    Slipping through my fingers

    I bleed

    I bleed out my soul
    My life
    Thoughts
    Dreams
    Fears
    Hopes

    I bleed all of this
    Out into just three words
    That I know you cannot return

    And that is why they bleed from me

    Because with each drop
    It burns me
    And takes away a small piece of me

    And with each word
    A…[Read more]

    I thought my first love would happen in an instant
    That it would be more than a spark
    But a giant flame burning through me

    I didn’t think it would be like this
    Growing slowly
    Like a seed

    Needing time to be nurtured
    And cared for
    To itself be given love

    Turning into a giant tree
    One that protects me
    And covers me fully

    I…[Read more]

    A lady passes by me
    and does not even look
    And a man might glance in my direction
    But
    A small child
    Walking by a discarded toy
    That is me
    Will pick me up
    And love me

    At least until he grows up
    And forgets me
    And so I am lost again
    But this time I am unseen
    And cannot be found
    Again

  • Maci_M commented on the post, think 6 years, 3 months ago

    A tiny drop
    Can turn into a stream
    And then a river
    An ocean
    It can turn into a giant wave
    That swallows you whole
    And then it burns
    It starts in the center of your head
    and slowly drips down
    Until there is a line of fire
    That ends at your belly button
    And circles you
    And engulfs you
    The fire then freeze’s you
    So you can not…[Read more]

    When I look at you
    I don’t see your eyes
    As blue
    And deep
    And inviting as they are
    Or your smile
    The way one corner of your mouth lifts higher
    And how you don’t just smile with your mouth
    But with your whole face
    I don’t see your hair
    The way it falls into your eyes when you don’t do anything to it
    And how touchable it looks
    The way…[Read more]

  • Maci_M commented on the post, speak 6 years, 3 months ago

    I stand at the edge of a cliff
    I can’t see anything below or behind me
    Maybe it’s for the best
    A tugging pulls at my heart
    It pulls me towards the cliff
    Over it
    Into it

    But I also feel it pulling me back
    Away from the cliff
    So I am frozen
    Unable to move

    I open my mouth to speak
    And there is no noise
    I scream

    And there is…[Read more]

  • Maci_M commented on the post, ahead 6 years, 3 months ago

    I can barely see you standing there
    Your figure dull and hazy
    I can’t catch up to you
    I try
    I swear to god I try

    But you’re too far ahead of me
    And you left me behind

  • Maci_M commented on the post, musical 6 years, 4 months ago

    The wind whistles through the grass
    As I stand in an open field
    I stand quiet and still
    Feeling the ebb and flow of energy
    Go over me
    Around me
    Through me
    As I listen to the Music of God
    And see beauty where all I saw
    Was nothing
