Peaceful Beauty, Raging Soul

Peaceful Beauty

“Everybody sees me as this sullen and insecure little thing. Those are just the sides of me that I feel necessary to show because no one else seems to be showing them.” Fiona Apple

My words calm her, and make her feel like I understand. Thing is, I don’t know her story. I don’t have to, because her story could be mine. Or yours. Just because she’s young, doesn’t mean that she’s carefree. She’s insecure, and unsure of her future.  She’s hopeful she’ll find her way. Find someone that will love her, for everything she is and isn’t. She wants to be normal; Better. Hell, don’t we all? I want to hold her, and assure her normal is merely a washing machine setting. I won’t tell you her name, though some of you may know her. Even if you don’t know her name, you will know her story. As much as I’ll share anyway.

Peaceful Beauty, Raging Soul

A knowing smile

Hides insecurity

Her tears

Beneath the surface

Her need to love

To be loved

She mourns her want

She’s stunning

But blind to it

Questions her worth

What is this desperation?

Her spirit wails

Listen, see, and accept me

Restore my soul

Ease my mind

Fulfill me

Kiss my lips

Stroke my cheek

Set me afire

I am precious

I am love

  2. I have been looking around a bit and came across this. It is amazing to me when someone can express something so completely with so few words. Economy of words, but Richness of content. Beautiful.

    • It’s been so long since I’ve read this. Funny, I know her, but I don’t. I can see a photo of someone and tell their story. Share a photo with me, and maybe I’ll see into your future.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Love, Renee
