ErinSmiles: I Measure Every Grief I Meet ~ Emily Dickinson

I measure every Grief I meet
With narrow, probing eyes -
I wonder if It weighs like Mine -
Or has an Easier size.

I wonder if They bore it long -
Or did it just begin -
I could not tell the Date of Mine -
It feels so old a pain -

I wonder if it hurts to live -
And if They have to try -
And whether - could They choose between -
It would not be - to die -

I note that Some - gone patient long -
At length, renew their smile -
An imitation of a Light
That has so little Oil -

I wonder if when Years have piled -
Some Thousands - on the Harm -
That hurt them early - such a lapse
Could give them any Balm -

Or would they go on aching still
Through Centuries of Nerve -
Enlightened to a larger Pain -
In Contrast with the Love -

The Grieved - are many - I am told -
There is the various Cause -
Death - is but one - and comes but once -
And only nails the eyes -

There’s Grief of Want - and grief of Cold -
A sort they call “Despair” -
There’s Banishment from native Eyes -
In sight of Native Air -

And though I may not guess the kind -
Correctly - yet to me
A piercing Comfort it affords
In passing Calvary -

To note the fashions - of the Cross -
And how they’re mostly worn -
Still fascinated to presume
That Some - are like my own -

ErinSmiles: The Road Not Taken ~ Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as far that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

ErinSmiles: When the party’s over ~ Billie Eilish

Don’t you know I’m no good for you?
I’ve learned to lose you, can’t afford to
Tore my shirt to stop you bleedin’
But nothin’ ever stops you leavin’

Quiet when I’m coming home and I’m on my own
I could lie, say I like it like that, like it like that
I could lie, say I like it like that, like it like that

Don’t you know too much already?
I’ll only hurt you if you let me
Call me friend but keep me closer (call me back)
And I’ll call you when the party’s over

Quiet when I’m coming home and I’m on my own
I could lie, say I like it like that, like it like that
Yeah, I could lie, say I like it like that, like it like that

But nothing is better sometimes
Once we’ve both said our goodbyes
Let’s just let it go
Let me let you go

Quiet when I’m coming home and I’m on my own
I could lie, say I like it like that, like it like that
I could lie, say I like it like that, like it like that

ErinSmiles:
Human ~ Christina Perri

I can hold my breath
I can bite my tongue
I can stay awake for days
If that’s what you want
Be your number one
I can fake a smile
I can force a laugh
I can dance and play the part
If that’s what you ask
Give you all I am

I can do it
I can do it
I can do it

But I’m only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I’m only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
‘Cause I’m only human

I can turn it on
Be a good machine
I can hold the weight of worlds
If that’s what you need
Be your everything

ErinSmiles: The way I feel


They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Will change the way I feel,

No-one knows the heartache,
That lies behind my smile,
No-one knows how many times,
I have broken down and cried,

I want to tell you something,
So there won’t be any doubt,
You’re so wonderful to think of,
But so hard to be without.

perfectsunset2c: I don't know your story, but have noticed you post a lot of deep poems, thoughts or songs. You have obviously experienced a lot of loss and pain in your young life. It does get easier. Surround yourself with people who are real and have your best interest at heart.

ErinSmiles: The Dash by Linda Ellis

I read of a man who stood to speak
At the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her tombstone From the beginning to the end.
He noted that first came the date of her birth And spoke of the following date with tears, But he said what mattered most of all Was the dash between those years.
For that dash represents all the time That she spent alive on earth And now only those who loved her Know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own, The cars, the house, the cash, What matters is how we live and love And how we spend our dash.
So think about this long and hard; Are there things you'd like to change? For you never know how much time is left That can still be rearranged.
If we could just slow down enough To consider what's true and real And always try to understand The way other people feel.
And be less quick to anger And show appreciation more And love the people in our lives Like we've never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect And more often wear a smile, Remembering that this special dash Might only last a little while.
So when your eulogy is being read With your life's actions to rehash Would you be proud of the things they say About how you spent your dash?
