Kayton Hickenlooper

I write to clear my mind. To get out of the fog of daily confusion. An artist by heart. To live, laugh, and grow.

How does it work?

    Empty

    Empty

    Empty The colors faded The hope is small The dance is slow My soul is cold The doors are shut So what way to go I do not know The shadows are high On a day that is so bright Always surrounded by love But I’ve never felt so alone Replaced, Vanished Did I lose the smile That was on my face Like crumbles of sand My heart runs through your hands Shriveled, small There is a part of me That is gone after all Tired to fight Tired to stand I feel the breaking As if it has happened again This emptiness inside has me on the floor Wondering why but maybe a when I guess it is time that I begin To create my own door To walk through and see Just what it is That is waiting for me

    Tough

    You are a flower Awaiting to bloom Struggling to grow In a place that has very little room Where the best moments are in the rain Running down your leaves With the vibrant colors leaving you At a moment in peace The heat of the sun warming you After a night so cold A warrior like a weed Stubborn and strong Enough to grow through the cracks Where no one wants to go People don’t notice what will happen Ignored Stepped over Like a plant that has no care No one questions until it is time When you start to bud Showing the colors of a flower that rises No competition because you are one of a kind But an Awe When you show your petals Like a swan with so much beauty People will stare but no one dares To touch the blooms of such radiance They are scared For the bloom of love is the sweetest one Your smile will touch their core For you will be happier Then you ever knew before

    There You Are

    There You Are

    They say home Is where the heart is Not a place Not a landmark But a connection A connection to love To be where you are In the now The moments we spend Wrapped in embrace Not from where we began To be content To accept For what is good For what is bad All the differences Everything from head to toe To create your happiness From within To enjoy the colors And every sound Because even the silence Can be heard Can you hear The sweet sound When the mind is silent Like the wind Dancing through the trees Or when the grass rises To welcome the warmth Of the morning sun The love that's felt That is home
