Second attempts

This is my first real try at writing. A lot of this has been in my head for a while but as part of a larger second attempt i thought i would try something new, actually writing them down. Read them if you like, or don't, i won't mind either way.


11. Night Eyes

i lose it sometimes
not at people
not really
just the planet i guess
and it's collection of closed minds
when the day was so good
and the memories were so sweet
and even the miserable weather
couldn't get me down
there was dampner
just for a moment
the squeeze before the untangling of fingers
it took me a second to work out why
just strangers in the dark
hulking silhouettes
bringing with them a scent of foreboding and danger
that's not fair
not in my eyes
i'm tired of pausing my happiness
knowing that it keeps us safer
but making the rage inside me burn brighter
watching my loves eyebrows crease a little
anxieties creeping in to the edge of their face
the men in the dark had no right to do that
to make us cautious to the night

But one day I'll be bigger
I won't lurk like these cowards
And I won't tense like I did
I'll stand tall
Maybe not in height, as my love would point out
But in confidence and strength
Not just for me,
But for all the others who've felt hands slip from theirs
Knowing that in the dark,
It is safer to be apart
