“Somewhere (The Intro)” by Cortney Joseph

I needed somewhere to capture these thoughts, to hold these feelings, to house these memories, these dreams and nightmares that won’t free me. I needed somewhere to be me without judgement, to speak my mind, clear my heart of all the emotions silently tearing me apart. Here’s where I bare it all as the theContinue reading ““Somewhere (The Intro)” by Cortney Joseph”

Invisible, Me. by Cortney Joseph

Falling, alone, constantly. Not a hand in sight to grab hold of, To pull me back, to pull me close. Unseen, unheard, unwanted, unloved. Alone in a world of people moving in slow-mo. Trapped in the abyss of loneliness, Invisible, barely here. Barely me.

“Running Thoughts” by Cortney Joseph

It’s been some dark days, Months of confusion, tears clouding my eyes When I want nothing more than to move past crying. It’s been some lonely nights, Weeks of seclusion, pain tearing my heart apart Because I want nothing more than to hold you in my arms.

I don’t like to be a burden on others. And people will tell you all day long that it’s no problem, that you’re not bothering them; whatever, everybody gets tired of hearing about other peoples’ problems eventually. So, with that thought always in my mind, I keep just about everything I feel to myself. Lately,Continue reading “Going Through It.”

A Moment To Breathe… And Think.

Grief is such a weird emotion, and I dont know how it affects others but for me it has taken a mental and physical toll on me. Some days I am perfectly fine. I feel good, confident, and I feel great that I am able to smile and laugh again in any capacity that IContinue reading “A Moment To Breathe… And Think.”

“Doin’ Wrong” by Cortney Joseph

In secrecy we meet, dangerously aware of the troubles we greet. Carelessly giving in to temptation week after week.   To others we belong, but the feelings shared between us are far too strong. We can’t let go, no matter that we both know this life we lead is wrong.
