the breeze will catch us.

rust stains

on innocent hands,

a tender sorrow washed away

by the rain,

proclaimed clean,

but the pain is still there

we were wildflowers in eden,

pristine, lovely little things

now, tragedy clings

to petals afraid of falling

β€”

sometimes,

there is beauty in the let go

hope is the wind

that will carry us home

– ashley jane

i’ve been here ever since.

i dipped my toes
in the promise of tomorrow,
its unexplored depths calling my name
i let its light filter in on shimmering strands
that swore to cleanse the dirt from my hands
but that ethereal glimmer
didn’t have the answers
so i let the dark speak,
its low hum whispering in the distance,
its smoky tone settling into my bones
i let its echoes guide me home

Love, Lies, and Lullabies is a collection of poetry about relationships and the emotions that come with them. It is written for the lovers and the liars, the broken and the mended, the hardened hearts and the soft souls who lie and tell everyone that they are fine. Each chapter is filled with poems that detail the ups and downs of life and love, of pain and joy, of losing and finding yourself again.
