Life hasn't been easy
Living here under this old roof with you
I thought I would be growing here
But days like this, fights like this, I know
Growth hasn't happened here, I lost my glow

More and more I ask some questions I'd like to ignore
Like am I supposed to stay here
Would I find the light and love me more
Like how do I let you drown out my love
Every time in the sake of push and shove

Misery speaks - I love you but you always suck
Once gold, my glitters old, every form of life
sparkles gone, dry from me, like feelings numb
And I'm not in touch

Like my heads tilt up, asking what I'm still doing here
worth it or not, your clothes, Ill dump them for you

God tell me, what am I doing here
Is this my path, am I supposed to stay?
Cuz lord knows me, I'm not okay

Do you even know me
My passion drives, they get the hold of me
Gone like the wind though, when you show me
That your guards up and you lack supporting me

Well - be - she's flooding now
Stream trickling - like how can I be clear now
Drawers out- haunting me with a blast from a past I hold dear to me
like I can’t let you live and be free
You see

Growth just hasn't happened here

Like you have to earn my propose
who are we even now

Ill scold you
Go be submissive now
To all of my needs, requests
Do what I say or I will throw you out

There's no other way to show you my worth
blind as night and so I shield up my heart
You've got me numbing up my plans like how
Am I going to even get myself out

out of what, depressive thoughts like who I am to me
submissive me, how?
If you don't even want life with me

Growth hasn't happened here

Shield up my heart, fxxx why'd I do that again
Let my guards down, hell you'll just play with it again
Submissive you, just come here again

Growth hasn't happened here

Eyes tell stories
They don't tell you, nooooo
Eyes tell stories
Eyes tell stories
hmmmmmmhmmmmmhmmmmm


The depths of your golden hues
Circulating waves through gunmetal blues
Leaking into the center black hole of you
Suddenly I know where you've been all on your own
Depths deeper than your bones all thrown


Where I meets eye

And........... that's when
I find all eyes tell stories, ohhh
Eyes tell stories
Don't you know?

Have you ever blushed and sank down under
At twinkles made from thunder
Story eyes began to mirror you
And if you continuously sinned to forget who you are
I bet you've found you've been playing games with all your scars


Perishable for you
But 80 year old you
Knows no parrish between such tangible lies
To fib yourself, avoiding changeable skies
But story eyes keep all lived ties

Sink back into those mirror eyes
Who's beginning to look at you?


And........... that's when
I find all eyes tell stories, ohhh
Eyes tell stories
Don't you know?

Eyes tell stories, ohhh
Eyes tell stories
They don't tell you, nooooo
Eyes tell stories
Eyes tell stories
hmmmmmmhmmmmmhmmmmm

About Me

Bio

Faline Kelsey Salisburg, a 26 year old woman going on 60. She has a depth in her heart that beats to her own drum.
Passionate for realities of life and overcoming struggles, she has dedicated much of her life as an ED tech since the age of 18. Her background in healthcare is made mostly of time spent working in a level 1 trauma center where she spent much of her trial and error days; ready to do everything she can to save a life, whether that's compressing hearts or listening to the sad and the confused.
Seeing things she'll never un-see and gaining passion amongst the everlasting lists of choices humans face in their every day lives, as well as herself, she writes.
Caring for those on their worst day of their life,
ought her such levels of perception in the face of faith, hope, grief and pain.
She presently works as an RN in a little town, best known for its baseball hall of fame, Cooperstown, NY. Her ED chapter has closed and she now cares for the patients after surgical procedures. While she knows this is not where she will stay, she dives through her mind to sort out a place that answers her heart and screams to her this place is home. Through the challenges she faced in taking her exam, she took time off from healthcare to end one chapter and begin another. What she didn't know was this time off would give her a second chance to begin again. Singing hums and tunes has always been her way of healing her mind and allowing grace to wash over her experiences, and this time gave her the opportunity to do just that. And so she writes. Knowing the depths of how light shines through in the darkest of the hour, she has found Songbay, a safe space to create for herself and for the ones who will resonate.
