Beautiful Girl

“I’m an angel with monsters in my mouth.” Stephanie Bennett-Henry

I want to run away. I need a passport. I need to see the world. I heard there’s more than this place. I need proof. I should leave today. Forget the packing. I’ll go just like this. Meet me there? On the other side of anywhere. -Stephanie Bennett-Henry

If you love me, say something now. And I don’t meant the kinda, sorta, maybe kind of love. I’m talking about the love that hurts. The kind that changes your breathing, makes you tremble at all the right times, in all the right places, empties you completely to fill you again and again. Do you love me like that? Then tell me. Show me. Come and take me. -Stephanie Bennett-Henry©

I will never crawl to you. I will never buckle my knees for you or for anyone else. I will never give you more than the roll of my eyes, the hard turn of my back, like a door being slammed, a book being closed after the last disappointing chapter. I’ve said it a million times and my voice will never waiver as I say it a million more. I have given you all that I have. You’re not getting the cold, empty room of me that still stands because it stands with only one brick of slap-stick love. That’s all I have left of me and whatever it takes, I will rebuild that empty room into a home and I promise you will not be getting a key. Stephanie Bennett-Henry©

There’s poetry hiding under my tongue, turning my chaos into art and every time it saves me. Stephanie Bennett-Henry©

If you want to love me, you better be a storm chaser. -Stephanie Bennett-Henry©

I have spent my life with one foot out the door. I can’t wait for the other foot to come to the realization that it doesn’t need permission to complete the exit and the only approval I need to complete the exit and the only approval I need to complete this sweet escape is my own. Stephanie Bennett-Henry©

I wonder what you do with the little shards of my heart you kept? If you still love them in secret, still hold on to what you once said was beautiful. Maybe you do hold those pieces from time to time because I swear I still feel you touching me, and as far as your heart, I never did let go. Stephanie Bennett-Henry©

and I don’t know what else to say. I only know this love of ours is something special, not to be felt lightly. But to be felt so deep, it’s absorbed into your skin, thick like forever, and hard enough to crack your bones in places that hurt in the best way. I love you this way. Always have. But, I feel like I’m nothing more than just another day to you, one you could take or leave, and I am so much more. Stephanie Bennett-Henry©

She’s never been the intimidating type, but still, she scares the shit out of you. You never saw her happy until she was gone and now her smile is something that has nothing to do with you. She’s happy without you. She is bad ass without you. She is so much of everything on her own and none of it was your idea. That always was your biggest fear. But you should’ve been terrified when she never smiled, instead of doing nothing. Now you watch while she smiles a name that doesn’t even sound like yours. Stephanie Bennett-Henry©

I want you. That’s all there is to say. I want you. I always get what I want and if I don’t, I’ve been known to take it. So, if you don’t feel the same, say something now because I’m about to kick down the front door of your heart and just take you. Stephanie Bennett-Henry©

  1. I’ve been reading your poems through Facebook for a few months now. Thank you for saving me. Thank you for giving me courage and strength. Your poems kept my head up in a lot of dark times. They remind me so much of the struggles I’ve faced and overcame. Your words are so deep and real. I truly appreciate you.


  2. How many words do you think there are floating around inside this cookie jar. What treasures to behold. A literary gift given to us since days of old. Every word we speak has meaning and seeks its peak much as people on earth compete your words will fight after being born to survive the daily storms. Given birth they take on their own shape and exist from now to the end of days. So choose wisely when you say or speak every word that you release. Inspect them for kindness dressed in gold and of course there’s understanding from experience given from days of old. Patience too must you include if your manifested words should be tested when our Lord returns with much adue. Make sure your words are goodness through and through… ja wa
