help me stay


help me stay

can you

give me a reason

can you give me a choice

maybe I’ll take it


maybe I’ll


when the road gets rough

but what have I always said


leaving you here


maybe I’ll cry when

nothing happens

sometimes sometimes

I wish I wish I had a


but those promise hearts come back glass

and what else can I wish for

when everything’s

been done right


if I just

wish too hard not to want

maybe it will get easier

I am trying not to hurt you with these knives I hold.

I have such horrible aim.


I am trying not to pull you off the track you laid.

I keep hallucinating the train coming.


I am trying not to take over your brain like a tumor.

I keep thinking about you until I’m stuck in your head.


I am trying not to cry as hard as I know you need to.

I am a river and I keep needing your skin like a drought.


I think the tears of this hunter

are as wet as the tears of the hunted,

and just as bitter.


I can sell sweet

but I have never been honey with this fast-paced flood,

words that can cut like tripping,

love that I can laugh with you

but it might just mean the blades are sharpening.


When I’m drowning in trusting you I am still holding knives.

This is the only thing that makes me a truth teller.


But when I look at you I turn pink with promises,

I only want to stay here four seasons of the year,

maybe more.


When I look at you I can only see

the countless hands that must have built this beautiful,

not the hammers I bring with me to cave it in,

please close my eyes for me

so I can know it again,

that my tools are not the kind that build.


Mouth open so I can spill my cracks into yours,

maybe here two wrongs make a right,

I hope you love to choke

because when I am living on the way you taste

that is all I can give you.


Breathe the scorch and all I can feel

is just how sharp these hands are.


I am trying not to hurt you with these knives I hold.

I have such horrible aim.

Love Poems on I make this promise to you I am Yours

To be your lover when you need to be loved,

your doctor when you are ill,

your army when you go to war,

your umbrella when life rains down on you,

your rock when you get weary,

your shield when you need defense,

your spirit when you are drained,

your pillow when you need to rest,

your voice when no one can hear you,

your ear when no one will listen,

your comfort when you feel pain,

your hero when you are under duress,

your sunshine when darkness falls,

your answer when questions arise,

your inspiration to overcome obstacles,

your hand to hold when you are frightened,

your kiss that wakes you everyday,

and your "I love you" each and every night.


I am yours... all of me.

She Broke the Promise

My heart started dancing like the legend Michael Jackson,

When she promised to meet me soon,

Alas! My expectation broke like a mirror, feeble,

As soon as she told me that meeting is not possible!


I told her to fix another date,

She replied like a heroine that she was getting late,

I could not utter another word after that,

Before my eyes she emerged as a fierce cat!


Perhaps breaking hearts she was good at,


Nonetheless I did get a lesson from that!

I Promise

I promise that I will ever love you,

I promise that I will never doubt you,

I promise that I will consider your family as mine,

I promise that our mutual journey will be fine.


I will never yell at you,

I will never let you down; it is true,

I will take you to the dinner sporadically,

I will be a good listener eventually.


I will say sorry at once,

If I hurt you ever by chance!

I will be a good husband,

A gentleman, a reliable friend.


I will cry with you,

I will laugh with you,

I will walk with you in the rain,

Holding your hand over and over again.


I will dare to steal the stars for you,

I will charm you gifting with something new,

I will be your breath,


Defending you, I will not even hesitate to fight against death!

*This Could Be*


 February.18.2013/ April.12.2015

 Trisha Barrek Hopkins


This could be the dream come true

If you'd let me into your heart

A passion you never knew

No matter how tough

Just let me take care of you 

Trust me from you my love I'll never part

I'll stick by your side no matter how rough

You are by far my one true other half

You have been from the very start


I'll hold your hand

Through thick and thin

Right next to you is where I stand

I'm forever your woman

Who'll cherish you forever

Because you are truely my man

Lets stick together

From here to the moon my soul

Never start over 

Making you happy....Forever taking care of you

Will forever be my goal

I'll pick you up when you are down

Praying your heart no one has stole

I promise to make you smile

Whenever you wear a frown

My love in your heart I promise to stay for a long while


From the skies above

And all though out town

People will see what is true love

When they see us side by side

Hand in hand

God sent the angels to give us a message

That sticking through it together is in demand

That my nana believes we are soulmates

We are truely meant to be together and grow old

To never go to bed with hate

To kiss and have love in our hearts

You finding me was truely fate

This is what I've been told 

It has been written in the stars

I'll hold onto that message forever and always

To you I forever tightly will hold

And love you more and more each passing day


I will cherish and protect

Give you my shoulder for when you cry

Wipe away your tears

Our love I will never let it die

I will help you get through your fears

To you I promise never to lie

Honesty is all I ask for now in return

Have our dreams soar high

Promise to my heart you won't burn

Sweetheart I do ask

Please to me don't ever say good-bye

And from our past mistakes let us from it learn

To never repeat them again

Always remember there's no "could of been"


Keeping your heart my home

I know won't be an easy task

But I swear on my life I will always try

Please don't ever kick me out 

For that is my home

As for my heart is yours

Don't let this love pass us by 

Promise to eachother to not make it feel like an everyday chore

Lets be together untill we die

Even after we are angels

Flying freely in the sky

For I will forever stand by my man

Sweetheart you are my special Valentine

If anyone trys to take you away 

Shit will definitely hit the fan 

And it will be that persons worst day

I believe you will forever be mine

I want with you to take care 

To pick you up when your feeling blue

When you have cloudy days I will make them brightly shine

And make you feel brand new 


Everyday new experiences with you I want to share

Experience new excitement and make new memories

Every night lay on your chest

Your heart beat I want to hear

In your arms forever rest

Knowing for you I'll always care

Knowing that you know I think you're the best

This could be 

I know I'm almost there

I'll wait forever untill you see

When you look in my eyes and stare

I'm here to help you let go of your doubt

No one else will understand you like me 

No one else will show how much they care

Or treat you like your suppose to be 

To show you true love they don't dare

They do not see how great you are 

In your own true way

Unlike with them you don't have to put on a pretend show

With me you can be and act the way you want

Because honey your my luckiest star

You're the cutest there's no need to flaunt

This I hope you know


I will help make you see that everyday

That you are perfect as can be 

I love you everytime is what I'll always say

This I hope you can really see

While you soundly sleep

I'll keep watch so you can peacefully rest

And in your dreams forever play

I'll protect your soul

I'll protect you in each and every way

This will be my lasting goal

Know this honey this is my test

To show you my love

I Will show my very best

Each and everyday

To you a new way I will show you how

Our connection will never end soon

We are finally as one 

I will forever love you from here to the moon

*These Tears Fall Because I Miss You*



 Trisha Barrek Hopkins


Baby it's hard when your not here

To not to cry

To not let this tear fall

I'm not sad I just wish you were by my side 


I look forward to your call

These tears fall because I miss you 

This fact I no longer can hide 

Every part of me 

Wants every part of you that's true

I just wish my dreams can be set free

The way they want to be 


I want time to fly by

So I can be near you 

To hold you 

And feel your touch

You are so very true

I don't ask for much

With you I want to fly


Honey these tears fall because I miss you

I've waited long enough

I'm so glad we met

Without you in my life it's been rough

Our future honey it's set


I'm so glad to be by your side again

You're forever in my heart

Now we have our remember when

Never again let us part


These tears no longer need to fall

Because we are finally together

I look forward to your text...your call

I promise to be by your side forever




Hinting at greatness,

The young boy hurls

That ball, with blue flame

And fire chasing it.

In his exacting delivery,

He is surgically precise.

Like a cornered viper

In momentous moments,

Under preposterous pressure,

He is at his deadliest.

Anyone with knowledge

Of the game can see

His gift and potential.

The boy himself will

Soon realize his talent and,

Already his heart holds

The game in a vise like grip.

That combination, is his

And his family’s ticket

Out of their meager home.

He is a desolate spark of hope

In the pitch blackness.

Like a struck match he will

Illuminate the night.

Who Am I?

I am a shadow, long gone
I am forgotten, disappointments spawn
I am the weeping, in nights silent hour
From society, who savors the sour
I am the dark, stuck within my fears
I am denied, to them and all who hears
I was a dreamer, now hiding within my sleep
From the all of the promises that I can not keep
I am a shadow, long gone

I loved, and I loved you well.
Even after you challenge me hell
I remember, she parted us, you and I
She kissed your cracks, promising you lies
She left you broken, by the dead
But me, I wanted you by my side, to cherish instead

An old class assignment I digged up.

It was supposed to be more simple and straightforward.

But I remember, I couldn't help myself from twisting it up
