Hi, my name is Cara, or Carrie, whichever. I'm 23 and a mother of two. I like to write, although I can hardly consider myself to be a writer. I haven't really had the time to write anything new as of lately. I'm generally a nice person, and I'm easy to talk to, so if you feel up to it, send me a message with something interesting to talk about. Also, if you're into poetry, take a look at some of the things that I have posted on here. I'm not that great at writing poetry, but I've had a lot of life experiences and maybe there will be something that speaks to you.
Here's some of my poetry, feel free to leave a comment if you want.
I don't know how to be light,
Without being caged.
Without being sad.
Without feeling empty.
The days go by,
Without a word.
Yet you're never gone from my thoughts.
I'm searching for a way to reach out to you,
And all I can grasp is smoke.
Like you were never really here,
Like you never really cared.
You tell me not to give up,
What more can I do?
The only thing I want,
Is a way to be with you.
A piece of me,
I hold in my hand,
One thousand roses
Full of thorns
Simple mind, tired and worn
One million chances to scorn
An inevitable infatuation was born.
Over My Head
It's over my head, over my head.
I can't seem to reach the top again
or even brush the sides
My feet grow heavier with every kicking attempt at survival.
Faces peer down at me,
offering no hand of salvation.
It's over my head, over my head,
and I wonder briefly how it came to this,
which slip caused the fall,
which mistake ruined it all.
You can find the rest of my poetry in Hidden Corner of Poetry if you care to look. Feel free to critique or compliment! :)
