Who made these sounds the ruler of her heart..
wondering where it began
what is the purpose of those words spoken..
Each syllable slamming into her like an explosion of shards..
Her emotions flying in every direction
the aftermath unthinkable
ripping her apart
The stain runs deep
Her hands tarnished picking up the pieces
cleaning up the hurts
The mess has beat her mind numb
Her heart bleeds
and the truth spills all over it..
It’s never enough for him
She never has been..
She sits in the darkness waiting for the light
hoping to understand the words that dictate her heart..
My oldest friend
Do not abandon me
disintegrating wasn’t part of the plan..
We’ve journeyed the miles hand in hand
there is no beginning
surely there is no end
I won’t let go
My foundation, my anchor
We can sail through it all
The sky won’t fall
Redemption is our friend
It will pull us up and pull us out
We extend from the tip top to the bottomless bottom
Always were, always will..
You are the mainstay of my heart..
heart shackled to the moments we’ve left behind Lock me down in this space
The confinement of you
The chains may rattle
the cage may shake
Yet nothing will unchain the love locked within us
Come what may
Some things remain the same
I wish to be in your custody
restraints I will never fight to undo..
screw in the bolts
tighten the locks
Held captive by us
Doing life with you
my prison of love..
the tighter I hold
The looser the grip..
slowly slipping away
Words sound the same
scenery looks the same
Smiling familiar faces
running circles in the same places
but the ground is shifting
Drifting.. can’t be stopped..
Airwaves are deadly
currents sucking me in slowly
until I’m giving into the pressure..
Being carried away involuntarily
thrown about aimlessly..
until I glide away
we lit up the paths behind us,
burning so bright with each venture we’d race to..
each new door we’d dare to jump through
Unafraid where we’d land.. knowing we were hand in hand
embracing the unknown
Fearless in our quest for life..
it now blankets our insides, suffocating our outsides
the darkness of fear eclipsing the light that shined so bright
the silence so eerie, it is all we hear..
Let’s start a fire
Burning up the apparitions that have become us, burying the ghosts we hide in
watching till fear is no more
Awake with me
Let’s ignite the trails till they roar..
