Broken

By Joy Mitiini

I’m in a state of confusion
I don’t understand what I’m doing
I know you’re there
And I know you care
But I can’t see you
I can’t hear you
I just don’t know what to do
I know you’re there in the stillness
Waiting to heal this illness

There is a deep hole
A sickness in my soul
Disease in the depths of my heart
But how to fix it
I wouldn’t know
How it came to be
Is a deep mystery to me?

I know that I am broken
We all are in some way
But rarely are these things spoken
Rarely do I have the courage to say
The secrets kept within
The depths of my sin

Letting Go

By Joy Mitiini

My eyes close
I’m holding onto
My memories
And hatred
My slumber
All alone in my head
So silent

I can’t explain the way
My tears run blood along my veins
If I let go of my pain
I’ll cease to be
Give into the plague

War is coming
I can hear it in my heart
Blood will flow
Along the grounds of the innocent
I can’t deceive
The darkness anymore
I’m letting go

Free

By Joy Mitiini

I buried them all
The memories of our sweet past
The dreams of our happy ever after
The promises of never letting go
The fears of ever losing you
The tears of our happiness and sorrows
They are all dead

I waited too long
Until my patience expired
Until my heart was worn out by despair
Until my soul could bear no longer
Until my body cried for freedom
Until I could hold on no more
I already let go

I’m sorry it’s over
You are free and single
You are no longer tied to my words
You are clear and can mingle
You are no longer my entitled
You are broken from all those chains
You are now free

Friends

By Joy Mitiini

The quirks and the laughs
The smiles and the selfies
The crazy and the cool
The fun and the memories
The weird and the awesome
The tears and the frowns
The hits and the misses
The ups and the downs
Our friendships have been
One awesome ride

If

By Joy Mitiini

If you are going to love me
Love me deeply
If you break my heart
Then break it all
If you are going to care
Care for me completely
If you decide not to hold
Then let me fall
If you are going to stay
Then stay forever
If you want to leave
Then do it today
If you are going to talk
Then mean what you say

I’m Single

By Joy Mitiini

I’m single because
I fell apart
I’m single because
I can’t do it anymore
I’m single because
I have no desire to be
I’m single because
I need time to myself
I’m single because
I need to be
I’m single because
I was in pain
I’m single because
That’s how it has to be

I Forgive You

By Joy Mitiini

You’ve asked me to forgive you
For you are sorry
Sorry as you can be
And you never had intentions
Of ever hurting me
I’ve thought about it endlessly
The way you made me feel
So angry, sad and disappointed
How I wish it wasn’t real
But I’ve finally come to realize
That you’ve been hurting too
And there’s a lot of deep down healing
For both of us to do
So I hope that you and I together
Can make a brand new start
To love you I always will
And with all my heart
I forgive you

Love Fever

By Joy Mitiini

Really amazing
How at the touch of love
Everyone becomes a poet
Words untold
Things undone
Reveals and unveils feelings
Phrases unknown flow
Vocabularies unheard go slow
It’s cute to listen
As creativity claims its peak
Romance at large

Hold On

By Joy Mitiini

Step out of your comfort zone
To unleash success unknown
Bury yesterday it’s a new dawn
Your future calls to be drawn
Focus do not frown
Practice makes perfect it’s known

When you are gone
I will miss you
That moment everything will be done
I will curse losing you
I will remember words you said
Things you did
When my attention was divided
And weep in my bed
Cursing my heart for fearing
To admit what it really felt
Please hold on.
