Belong by Bella Larsen

 

Early in the morning
Before alarms or the sun
I hide from my anxiety
Content with feeling none
Once I go about my day I start to feel it creep inside
But for now, I feel peace
Anxiety is at low tide
I’m with the love of my life
Cuddling in bed
He’s laying into my chest
While i rub his hair and head
We listen to songs
Or simply just be
Here, in our little cocoon,
I don’t ever want to leave.
He tells me he dreamt of our future
Where we have both a son and a daughter
“She was beautiful and had your eyes,” he says
I can’t wait to see him as a father
This life I am living
Feels as though it’s from my dreams
Sometimes it feels too good to be true
And it’ll be ripped from me at the seams.
So when these thoughts sneak in
And scare away my calm
I take a deep breath and cuddle into my love
Content with knowing this is where I belong.

Untitled, Too by Bella Larsen

I’ve taken my expectations
I have for myself
And dropped them down
Down
Down
D
O
W
N
From where I kept them held high
And now they’re on the ground.
Maybe now I’ll stop feeling like I am
Not enough, not doing enough
If I let the air out
I mean
The pressure
If I take away the pressure I put on myself
Maybe I’ll learn again how to let
Just being
Be More
Than enough

Untitled by Bella Larsen

There’s a small light
A very tiny flame
Growing inside
That is the fire
Pushing me to
Demand respect.
But just one thought
Of uncertainty
Blows the flame out
Like the last stubborn candle on a birthday cake
And
I am very insecure.

Surrendering by Bella Larsen

Sometimes I fight
Against my demons
I fight for control
Of my mind
So I do not lose myself
To their darkness
But other times
Like tonight
I am so very tired
I take a long, deep breath
And I let them win.
