Let It Go

Although time has passed they still come to me

In my dreams they still torment 

Even in their death memories do not decompose 

Logic tells me I am no longer in danger 

My heart yearns to trust 

To give my all to another these thoughts must abate

There is no room for hate

Fear and torment will not be my fate

There will be a way 

I still have faith 

By, TJP 



Her voice is weak

Words hollow 

Devoid of emotions

Churning, frothing 

Rolling thunder

Below the thin membrane of control 

Patching leaks as they appear

Halting speach

Scattered thoughts 

Sewn together with threads of hope

Articulating naught but chaos

And a prayer to be heard

By, TJP 

Forget Me

When you finish playing

Would you be mine

I will hide my tears

Biding my time

I won’t stand in line

I may tell you

What it is I feel

I won’t let you have me

Until I can heal

It may never be

That you will choose

As simple as it is

To let me love you

Can you be faithful

Could it be true

It is always possible

You I will lose

I know I’m not pretty

I know I’m not smart

But I will always love you

Deep in my heart






I see you standing over me

Holding my breath

I know your not there

I’ve already left

Feeling your anger

On the floor cold and alone

Your rage washes over me

Your words cut me deep

I will not cry out

I can not sleep

No response will I give

I will not shout

Curled in a ball

I count to myself

If I can just hold on

You’ll burn yourself out

Fear keeps me still

I know what comes next

I can’t beat the chill

Searching for my next breath

Calming my mind

I stand once again

I may still fall down

But you will not win
