• i’ve got a truck for the weekend and i’m lying in its bed,
    staring up at the cloudless sky and wishing you were next to me
    to help me count the stars.

  • i wish you’d had a camera to capture the look in my eyes as i stood on the precipice.
    i’d have liked to have seen a hint of bravery.

    i am not ready for departure but i’m going anyway.

  • sarah marie commented on the post, reminded 4 years, 9 months ago

    daily i am reminded of god’s grace,
    and i show it to others
    but daily, i must remind myself that i need to show this grace to myself.

    i am so unbelievably enough.

  • sarah marie commented on the post, overt 4 years, 10 months ago

    am i too overt with you?
    or am i really being honest?

    why do we live in a world where it’s unacceptable to express how we feel?

  • i am no longer considered an adolescent
    but when i look in the mirror
    i don’t see an adult
    and when i’m forced to look inside myself
    i don’t feel grown enough to take on the world

  • sarah marie commented on the post, dealer 4 years, 11 months ago

    i called the drug dealer yesterday
    to see if there was a return policy on you
    and to see if there was a cure for the side effects you left on my heart

  • i have witnessed my own destruction
    i have seen my body fall to the floor, in pieces
    but then i watched myself get back up again.
    i have found my voice.

    you would have looked so handsome standing at the end of the aisle, waiting for me. your bowtie would have been white.

  • sarah marie commented on the post, striped 5 years ago

    the stains of what i’ve done are striped on my back
    i am tiger in a cage

  • sarah marie commented on the post, starlit 5 years ago

    i like being out here with you
    lying under a starlit sky

    i think i could see them all
    but i find myself choosing to stare at you instead

  • sarah marie commented on the post, clasp 5 years ago

    i lose myself in the heat of your body
    skin against skin
    i clasp my hand in yours

    please don’t fall in love with me
    and don’t let me fall for you

  • sarah marie commented on the post, apprehend 5 years ago

    apprehend my heart
    take my soul captive
    cover my lips with yours and forget to let me breathe.
    it would be my pleasure to have you break me in two.

  • sarah marie commented on the post, standing 5 years, 2 months ago

    i could be standing in a crowded room
    or standing alone on the edge of a mountain
    surrounded by life
    and feel dead
    because something deep within me
    between the spaces of my atoms
    cries out for you

  • sarah marie commented on the post, aperture 5 years, 2 months ago

    an aperture
    the size of my body
    small then big then small then big
    changing
    often
    like me

    can i go through it?

  • sarah marie commented on the post, cone 5 years, 5 months ago

    sometimes, i get really emotional when i see someone drop their ice cream cone.
    god forbid i drop mine.

  • you have so much influence over who i am as a person,
    so much so
    that i don’t know who i would be without you.
    i don’t know how to be without you.

  • sarah marie commented on the post, instant 5 years, 7 months ago

    that’s all it takes.
    one instant.
    everything can change.

    that’s terrifying.

    but
    it’s also sort of refreshing.
    at any moment,
    you can change yourself. be anything you want to me.

    that’s also sort of terrifying.

  • sarah marie commented on the post, anchor 5 years, 10 months ago

    where is my anchor?

    who will ground me again when i’m caught in a storm?

    i am lost at sea. i am floating away.
    my ship will shatter, i will drown.

  • sarah marie commented on the post, beware 5 years, 11 months ago

    beware of the voice in the back of your head
    who whispers about demons who wish you were dead.

    be careful, dear one, or you will find
    that this voice, these demons, will take over your mind.

  • have i been sentenced
    since contraception – xx
    to live a life
    hating my body?
