Wake Up♥

It's about time.
I'm waking up.
time to reach over and grab on
grab hold of what's true
not what's not

Breathe in and breathe out
I know I'm still struggling
just to do so.
I haven't forgotten
how so loved I am

But, when is it my time
when am I gonna realize
When am I going to breathe 
easy

You look me in the eyes,
I'm nervous.
You're telling me how special
I am
You love me
And I truly love you.

When do I get my chance
to breathe
no panic, no time to be scared
Who knows?

I guess I'll just keep waiting
because you say
"Not Yet"

Confusing♥

Confused, dear
That is what I am as I stare
I stare at the ground drowning out
chaos, while learning the patterns
maybe, I'm just searching for a little
peace in the midst of nonsense

Too many names
Too many faces, all having to be 
memorized
Who are you again?
I really get lost.
Looking into the eyes of so many
simply trying to understand how they 
function

Who do I bump heads with
Who am I annoying to
Who may be a friend in the months to come
I am really getting 
confused-

I prefer to be behind the Curtain
Listening and not acting
I'd rather look from the side rather
than looking straight on
Why are they pushing.
Why are they so confusing
I need consitency and this is not-

I need peace
and a little quiet
too many people 
Squishing into one little space
But what's his name again?
Oh... I don't know.

Fantasy♥

Hello, Fantasy
I've been searching for you
relief, peace, no chaos
but right now I'm stuck in 
just searching for you.

You feel so close yet not
close enough
I imagine not being in pain
I imagine laughing with my friends
not worrying about some attacks
in another country called
Syria

I believe, Fantasy, that you hold
the very day where I stand among
those who are called loved-ones
and I stand there not afraid
but rather happy and joyful
I see you in the far distance,
Fantasy.
Right now something is wrong
this home that we have
Is wrong. It's hurting right
now
I feel it in the deepest 
parts of my aching soul
But Fantasy, please...

I dream and search for you
Fantasy. 
You seem so unavaliable
You hold peace
no guilt
no shame
happiness, joy

But am I really just dreaming up
what you could be, Fantasy?
Are you really just a Fantasy,
Or are you so much more?

-H.E.♥

Run Away Girl♥

Run away girl we are looking
for you
You have ran away from home
what do we do now

You skipped town
in the night with a bag
in hand
You are trying to escape
something
What are you trying to avoid
run away girl

You can’t out run your
problems
nor can you hide
they will follow you
even in your darkest 
or lightest times

You can face this my
run away girl
You can breathe through
this 
Come on Run Away 
Girl

Turn around
Face the truth
and fight the fight that’s 
hurting most

-H.E.♥

Not Breathing♥

Suffocating
not breathing
drowning
fear
anxiety
overwhelming

these are the things
that I feel
I feel at peace
when I open my 
journal
and scribble the mess
that's going on in
my life

I feel sick sometimes
scared even
a little terrified
but when I'm looking at
the masterpieces
God is creating in the
sky
I can't help but attempt
to ground myself.

Senses 
peace, no anxiety
is where I'm at my best
not fearing the worst 
and craving the best.

-H.E.♥

HomeTown♥

Blue River
soccer fields
Drive in
Cabells
DQ and Kroger

These are all a part of
what I like to call my 
hometown

Small and quiet
slightly dramatic
Busy and Slow
a little bit of both

Taco Bell, McD's 
Taproom and the Pub

We take pride
in the Golden Bears 
and the story we all read
in the 3rd grade
about how
Shelbyville 
came to be

This is my hometown
small and busy
quiet and slow
Food to eat 
and too many banks 
to count

Close friends
the world seems so small
welcome to the hometown
of the corn festival
or the Blue River Festival
Booths and food
Play slides
and Sunset Park

Welcome to the home 
of the Golden Bears 
Comets, Bull Dogs
and the Hurricanes
Welcome to the town
that I like to call
Home.

-H.E.♥

Mess Up♥

I hate messing up
is it all i can do
i hate hurting
people
let alone hurting
someone like
you

It hurts me and i cant
contain it
I didn’t mean to make you
feel hurt
if that’s how you feel 
anyway

Maybe you’re okay..?
I can only 
pray

-H.E.♥
