A Poet Never Sleeps

One day you will be faced with the impossible. When you become afraid, become inspired.

My Final Interaction

An error I’d like to bring to light

Is one of the greatest sorrows

To have a laps of morals



To wantonly court a taken man

And threaten to leave education

Become a thieving scallywag

For this I am disgusted


In the face of laws and ethics you laugh

Blatantly disregard other’s rights

How can I continue a relationship with

You for whom I have no respect




A Murky Mind

List to words written

Illuminate the knowledge you desire

Or do you?

Do you desire to know?


Shrouded in blissful ignorance

With you face to the sun

Stepping over the shattered bones

Of the fallen thoughts


A smile and a laugh

You write off all as well

Yet the ugly truth who rears his head

Is that the very bridge you cling to, has broken


Now walking on crimson clouds

Soon to fall into raging waters

Where the allies which you left for

Will never support you through the thick


But not how you expected it

Today was a gray day

Weather wise and in health

Yet I am warm


Nothing of interest to report

A spark thrown into the dampness

And that’s ok


To get through this weekend

My goal to achieve

Then I come clean


I’m ready to cut the cord

Stop going through the muse

Which is insane


This is what you wanted me to do



29 October 2013

Free from you

The last string that would tie us together


This is where our story ends


In time this will be evident

And a new voice will fill my head

But enough is enough


I love you

Never forget this

Goodbye my dear


No more forced smiles

Or putting up a pretense

Finally I am free




Object of Envy

The ex love

Turned green with the thought

Of me with another


Then the guy who loves me

Who is loved by another

He must see this


Another time this happens

Although her victory I don’t care

For he is already taken


My genes have been blessed

And this too is regarded

By those with whom I am dear


A little bliss

A dash of regret

A delicious blend of life


Every guy wants me

Every girl wants to be me

Interworkings of a mind

Life is about walking the line

Between sanity and insanity

Too sane and you forget who you are

Not sane enough and you lose touch with reality


You must look into the future

Learn from the past

And live in the now

Or you will fail


Distinguish pain from anger

Love from lust

It’s not about falling down

But standing up again


Unique thought process

And a dream for tomorrow


16 October 2013

And You Need to Read

Words not meant to harm

Simply to express

What reactions come from them?

Fall to your discretion


Few complaints I will detail

A lie over something trivial

A dig direct towards me

Both to my face you sent them


And all though you are aware

You seemingly refuse to read these

Your understanding sets me free

While your ignorance causes me harm


No easy way to say this

For this might bring you pain

But I love you

So soon approaching

Fair weather friends I have plenty

No it’s the one I need

Who can see the inner storm


Both happen at once

And both are needed

In perfect balance


But now the balance has shifted

Plenty sunshine sailors

Yet none to weather the waves


A captain without her sailors

Only those green

A ship soon to crash


Grab fast the wheel

And look for the eye



When the day is gray: but some are easier than others


You write and drink hot chocolate

Wear long sleeve tees

And watch Disney films


Some days are gray in a different way

Where the sun shines

Yet the inner storm rages


Out in the streets

With wet cheeks

Although the sky is clear


Your shadow walks beside thee

Your only companion

Both days knock you down


08 October 2013

When tomorrow comes.

Living for tomorrow

Not the future

But the next sun rise


Even the weekend freedoms repeat

Is this circle necessary?

To reach a better tomorrow


Climbing and learning

Over and over again

Just a little, mostly the same


The things that give me joy

Fall cyclical

A flat life line


How to change things up

When tomorrow comes.  

Just a quite disobedience

Will keep up an act

To make the day to day bearable

With the last poem

I said goodbye


I haven’t told you this

The poem the only proof

Maybe you’ll never know

But it’s important to me


Free from this weight

My displeasure sorted

No guilt in my disgust

Although it will not be known


By my own choice

Kept from you per say

Not a secret in reality



The Gentle Dying of Life Past

A poem written this time last year
Told of our joys and trials overcome
Now I write to say goodbye for the last time
Once spoke of future goals and past gatherings
Now silence fills the void
I prepare for the inevitable
I will always love you
So this end is bittersweet
Both choices make me mournful and rejoiced
Goodbye my dear
They say two hears come together and fall apart
For the greater good
It breaks my heart to leave
And I will be lonely once more
But I don’t regret it
We can scream and make up
For six months of bliss
And start this again
Or we can end this now
Remaining courteous strangers
With a shared past
Yes people will reference this
And it will sting
But I’ll remember

Is My Greatest Challenge

Cats in the cradle

And the silver spoon

A child growing without her father

Going to be just like here dad


Once representing childhood fear

Now sums up my reality

Not perfectly, just a concept

Little girl grey


You will never see my leave

Or walk me down the aisle

My children you’ll never meet

Nor grow old with pride


I promised to take care of you

But I couldn’t do it here

I’ll carry your legacy

My sincere apologies


Not trying to let you down



Leaving dripping in the fog

Their colors beginning to change

Although the sky dapple grey

Grass grows an emerald gem


The air cool and sharp

Nature’s sound track muted

Only the gentle pitter patter sounds

The streets turned mirroresk


Chilled to the bone

I feel in tune, healthy

A spot of warm tea

Brings me back to life


Now is my favorite season

Immaculate weather

My ideal clothing

And great flavors

Fear of the Unknown


You could have asked me

What are your afraid of?

And I’d laugh at you

Fearless I’d say


But now I’m not so sure

I found something I’m terrified of

I’ve lost who I am

And this makes me cry


I’ve always been Kaitlyn,

Strong, passionate, kind

I had a path and future

A perfect role model


But now who am I?

What do I do?

Where am I going?
