Biography of Bailey Staggs
I'm a single mom, who loves to write. After going through a divorce of unimaginable circumstance, then ending a relationship with an amazing man, who was locked up, the rhymes kept coming and coming...almost without stop. I found inspiration through writing, and it has helped with the healing process of both situations. Many of my life circumstances are mentioned through my writings, and I only can hope that they will help others who know love and loss, pain and hurt, happiness and sadness! Healing is a process, but always remember, you are not alone!
Bailey Staggs Poems
He lives in a cell, all hidden away While she is out here, living her life, day to day They share a bond, no one can understand With guards all around they sit hand in hand
So many thoughts running through my head When, all I really want, is to lay down in my bed My brain won't shut off this cold, winter night All I do is sit here, alone by myself and write
The slide the rope over, Making sure all is in place They all sit there watching They cannot stare me in the face
What Of A Future
Where do I go? How do I move on from here? In the blink of an eye, my world seemed to disappear. The pain and hurt, too many times I cried today Through the prison door, I watched my Love walk away
Picking Up The Pieces
I may be broken, but I will not fall No longer will I sit here, wishing you could call On the floor no longer, will my heart continue to lay Gonna pick up the pieces, and make the best of today!
My heart hurts so bad For me, love is not easy Again, I am lost
Deeper within this heart of mine Is chaos and pain, of the worst kind So many years of beatings and abuse My emotions have never settled in truce
Drowning, going down so deep Let me drift off, to a peaceful sleep Drowning, I completely refuse to swim Until I've totally forgotten everything about him
The lonely days, go by so slow Sometimes I wonder, "why did you go? " I try to figure out, why I'm so unlovable Though I know, I'm not one who is completely stable.
There she sat, in her room all alone To afraid, to even pick up the phone Everyone had heard, everyone knew How she'd been hurt, all she'd been through
No matter how hard I try, not to feel My broken hearts, seems it will never heal I go about, day by day Hiding all the things, I really want to say
Sometimes, she lies awake, with life on her mind Never knowing day to day, what lies ahead, what she might find Some days she's happy, some days depressed Some days she wonders, is it worth it to finish the rest
Its been a week, since I last seen your face Tearfully drove that long road, as I left that place Sometimes, it feels like I'm not really here I have to force a smile, cannot shed a tear
Here as I lay all deep in my head I think of my thoughts that never can be said Alone and abandoned mangled and used Trampled on, dismembered beaten and abused
Sometimes, she lies awake, with life on her mind
Never knowing day to day, what lies ahead, what she might find
Some days she's happy, some days depressed
Some days she wonders, is it worth it to finish the rest
Sometimes, she asks herself, does she regret it all
As she tries to answer the question, "How did I fall? "
Sometimes she feels like throwing it all in
Because she cannot figure out how start over again
She lays alone, walls begin to build
