Judge Me Not

come_clean_by_reylia-d6qetzr

Judge Me Not

come clean, wash my dirt off
take away my years of mistake
if you’re faultless, come bathe me
rinse away the stains of my past
otherwise, steer clear—
do not try to label who I am
for you can only cast the stone
if your soul’s unflawed and sound

I Surrounded Myself With Emptiness

empty-reylia-1200

I Surrounded Myself With Emptiness

I surround myself with emptiness:
an empty jar that was once
filled with the sweetest jam
an hourglass whose sands
of time were blown by the wind
a light bulb— unable to shine
with its filaments gone
a wine glass that I sleep with
till my waking days

Call this madness or a hint of desperation
Curse this bed of despair from which I lie
But I surround myself with emptiness
So I can simply forget about mine

How I Heal

How I Heal

how I heal is walking
in between scattered memories—
barefoot and sore
risking the odds of tripping
onto a black and white
of stolen kisses, soft touch
love letters and lazy afternoons
how I heal is struggling
towards the water edge
with my bruises itching
in the ebb and flow
darling, how I heal is hurting
until I concede that we are no more.

Ghost of You

2629e25a80f13dc8d7579c2a95152c72-d7j5pbe

Ghost of You

when sadness knocks
on my door at night
and memories blanket
me with chill
when the ghost of you
creep like a phantom
would you know
how i feel?

when laughters are
fossilized in photographs
and warm touches
had already waned
do you sleep soundly
on a moonlit night
or think of how we
used to be?

First, I Was Afraid

your_promises_by_reylia-d6s8iu3

First, I Was Afraid

First, I was afraid of your promises
Petrified that I’d make a mistake
But I let your lies poured into me
As I clenched my heart tighter
I braced it for the sudden fall
Or the slow, agonizing torment
Of a heart too blind to see
That the love has drifted away.

Everything Passes

4a72ce333252668ad4d795c608f92be4-d71fajq1

Everything Passes

The day fading into the night
And darkness rolling to the light
Chuckles curling on a tail of smoke
Fears dissipating to touch of hope
Some roads coming to an end
And then some fate we cannot bend
This endless cycle of come and go
Is a beautiful journey for us to grow

Death Of A Heart

bleeding_heart_by_reylia-d6nid1f

Death Of A Heart

You disarm me
The way Icarus defied reason
And dared to fly the sun
The way a moth fought the heat
To dance with the flame

Hold my hands
And my shield will crumble
Caving in to your stare
For darling, this heart beats for love
And will bleed for the same thing

Collecting Dust

collecting_dust_by_reylia-d6lv6db

Collecting Dust

Too late, says the mind
Too weak, cries the heart

She let the words unspoken
Collect dust in tip of her tongue
Cobwebs gather in her ribcage
In the silence of a beating heart

Too late, says the mind
Too weak, cries the heart

Becoming Myself

reylia-slaby-dagny-tarver-becoming-myself

Becoming Myself

I have long roamed the earth
Searched the streets for a soul
That would look beyond the mask
See the woman behind
The fifty shades of beauty
The cherry tainted lips
The long, curled lashes
And make me realize that
My unbecoming is the becoming
That I’ve been waiting all along
