Beautiful Blur. ~ Skylar Liberty Rose {Poem}

dream petals

Can I stay here awhile

Can I crawl into the shadows

And let darkness cover the wounds

That are open and raw


Can I hide here awhile

Can I pause for long moments

Until I find some redemption

Until it’s safe to exhale


Can I forget who I am

Can I leave all my troubles

And just let my heart shatter

The way that it wants


Can I surrender completely

Can I finally set free

The silent screams

That submerge all else


Can I unlearn the hurt

Can I take off the weight

Can I step out of my life

And climb into yours


Can I take what is needed

To soften the edges

Until the sharpness mellows

To a beautiful blur


Love elephant and want to go steady?
