Words Unsaid

Santa Cruz1


With words unsaid, where are the tears now?

I can only see reality as it comes to me with no disillusion

I am not what you see but what is inside that you can’t see

Living seems so hard sometimes…

Today I am worth finding out what will happen next

The rain makes sound all around my house

With winds battling each other to push in each direction

Inside I am safe but at any moment the ceiling could open up to bring the storm inside

I wish sometimes I could just peer out into the endless sky from lying right here in my bed

See I can’t always have what I want even though I may try so hard to make it that way

I have to go outside to see the stars and feel the rain cut into my skin or touch me ever so lightly

I can’t stay in my house and watch the storm or beautiful, arrayed with color sunsets

I would rather yell my words at a canyon and hear them disperse into silence

I can find reasons why, why, WHY!?!

Yet my instinct tells me the best

I’d as soon as drop what I’m holding than try to carry what I can’t hold

I am a single mother and a full time student at Saint Martin's University majoring in Accounting. Most of my time is spent studying, parenting, doing house work and Tae Kwon Do with my six year old son.
I have been writing poetry as a creative outlet since my young teen years. I also performed ballet and jazz for ten years and played the trombone for 5 while growing up. My music tastes are very eclectic. I enjoy writing in free verse with metaphors. This blog is the first public show of my work.
I am also inspired to take amateur pictures of nature and family. Some of these are posted with some of my poetry. I hope to inspire people and touch them with my words.
