Sadness (by Kristina Louisa Carr)

Some days I am sad and I don’t know why
I can see an overcast in a brightly blue sky
Sleeping in I still lack energy and motivation
My whole life appears to be one stagnation

Feeling pain without actually being hurt
I can’t swallow my food and leave dessert
My eyes are burning with tears never cried
I miss everything I haven’t done yet and hide

Surrounded by thick layers of a heavy haze
My thoughts are bleak and I’m lost in a maze
I can listen to music without hearing a sound
Breathing is difficult and happiness not found

Sitting by the window I can see life passing by
But I am only watching as being on standby
While bathing in quicksand I am slowly sinking
And dark clouds are preventing me from thinking

Those days are difficult and hard to overcome
Because all emotions are muffled and numb
Sad days are lonely and I feel cold and strange
But tomorrow is a new day and it brings change

I Love You   (by Kristina Louisa Carr)

Our worlds are connected by the energy of lightening
The storm we create is powerful and often frightening
When our eyes lock surroundings disappear into vapor
The love I feel for you is real and never subject to taper

On my sad days you create rainbows that are glowing
Changing my aura I instantly feel better and easygoing
When I cry you wrap your arms around me and I’m intact
You are my sun that gives me life and reason matter of fact

With you I have days that are like sunshine and bliss
Everything appears to be perfect and nothing is amiss
I admire your strength and your reasoning every day
The cool you keep and that nothing you say is a one-way

I cherish your patience that I can bounce off playing
And your laugh when I don’t understand what you’re saying
You stand up solid with rationality purpose and fact
While I’m emotional daydreaming and at times overreact

I have never met anyone that can be so demanding but tender
Never leaving me guessing it’s honesty that you render
You know I don’t need you but it’s myself around you I outdo
I hope that you truly understand that I only love you

Forces of Nature  (by Kristina Louisa Carr)

When there is silence outside under the snow
I wish I could be a stone watching from below
The cold masses would provide me with peace
A state of mind I would love to increase

When there is a sandstorm arriving in a big cloud
I want to be able to withstand it alone in a crowd
The sand would surround me and rub against my skin
Like an innocent warm embrace rocking my body within

When there is a thunderstorm with great force
I want to use the lightening as an energy source
The electricity would rejuvenate my tired soul
The loud thunder would chase me out of my black whole

When a hurricane is turning the sky pitch black
I want to be outside and bathe in its violent attack
The winds would carry me to distant lands and oceans
And the rains would nurture my starved emotions

When a storm crowns the ocean with white foam
Swallowed by the water I would never miss home
Crashing waves would destroy every vessel at sea
But I understand the hunger and can’t disagree

When the sun shines bright and it’s peaceful outside
I could disappear behind large shadows or hide
The tall grass would cradle me until I’m fast asleep
Dreaming of the forces of nature for me to keep
