don’t disappear.

don’t disappear.

when your thoughts become dizzying, don’t sink away from the surface

do not drown in your darkness, break away my dear you have a purpose

i know the floor next to your bed and nightstand has become comfortable to you now

sitting here for a while, contemplating life and shivering at the thoughts you allow

but you have to remember the moments that bring pure joy into your heart

the ones that shoot love into your bloodstream like a poison dart

like when you’re alone with your mind on a beautiful day, warm with a cool breeze

when it’s behaving itself, highlighting the fact that there is solace for you among the trees

or when your pet stares into your eyes and you see the depths of their soul

you see so much love there, you’re all they want and all they know

don’t disappear


or when your best friend laughs, and you feel connected with them

you may not be as close as you once were, but you’ve been known each other since you were ten

and think about the time when you listened to that beautiful song

goosebumps formed on your skin; you could listen to it all night long

or when your lover holds you and you inhale their smell

and you think to yourself right then that you’re so happy that you tripped and fell

so easily right into their life

and how their face looks in the morning light

don’t disappear


i know that things may have been tough lately, but don’t leave

there is so much that you haven’t experienced yet, there’s a world to see

so, instead of feeling lost and confused, take a deep breath and let it go

exhale the thick energy out through your mouth and your nose

glance out the window and look at the sky

take these tired wings, soaked from sinking and let them dry

no matter how exhausted you feel sometimes, remember that it can always get better

take a walk with nature, light a candle and write yourself a love letter

list all of the things you are grateful for

and don’t say there is nothing, there is so much more

like the sun, good food, beautiful music, grass, rain

so many things that can erase any pain

don’t disappear.
