The darkness returns
cocooning me in its’ web of warmth and loneliness..
bringing you back
and all we knew
All we know of our highs and lows..
we’ve been kissed by the rain as it washed away our pain
We endured the fire as it branded our hearts..
our love would have never been erased..
my arms hold on to the empty space
so hard to hold on to what’s gone
Harder to let it go..
I am yesterday
It is tomorrow..
Closing my eyes
I’ll feel it one more time
as I welcome in the dawn..
snapshots of my heart..
a growing collage of us created from the start..
we grew like a pixel – multiplying over and over until the image of our love covered us whole..
Reel by reel
You play me..
unaware how you slay me..
3D explosions in my heart right from the start..
Can’t escape the moonlight of your eyes
Your reflection is everywhere
You burn bright within
I’ll give in
I’ll step out of the darkness and let you light the way..
we may be amateurs at this
but the impression you left on my heart snapshot me back to life
we have created quite a collection of where we’ve been and what’s to be..
I’m so glad to be part of this story..
You take no fool
Yet somehow you rule..
You bring me to my knees..
so stealth with a wealth of harm in your outstretched arm..
ever so quietly
you unleash your wrath of rage devouring me up
until I can no longer rattle free this cage..
Blanketed by a stranger that has taken over my insides
as if you own me..
I won’t stay down
I’m up again
the battle is on
I won’t give in to the bile running through my skin..
You can touch me but you’ll never take my soul, my heart or my thoughts..
I’ll fight and fight
I won’t finish till I win it..
For I belong
Hope lives on
can be deadly and all consuming
The power we give to thoughts..
The ones that rule our mind
The ones we ought to naught..
and all we leave behind..
With all its’ lost time..
It is not always as it seems..
The longer you dwell on what you can’t foretell
The hotter the burn from your own hell
crushed beneath it all
if you keep pushing
the harder you will fall..
set loose those thoughts that threaten to own you
Wearing you out
until you don’t know you..
You are more than the sum of your thoughts..
You take from me
Keep shaking me
raking me through the coals
I mope –
we reap what we sow..
It don’t matter to the world
It will keep spinning
Time will keep winning
No matter that you’ve changed
I may be delicate & sweet in all that you see..
But don’t misconstrue what you think you know
I will shine again
I will find my sun
I will find my feet and learn to run..
inhaling, swallowing , absorbing you
your taste ever so lethal..
I slip away
I fly high
I fall apart
The pain I hide in dissipates..
Do you know I’m gone
Do you feel it in your bones..
As they bury me eight feet deep..
with me goes the hurt &
the lies as i mix in with the dirt..
leaving me be
all my secrets
all my fears
have been set free..
Walk away and know –
I’m as happy as I’ll ever be as i go..
You are the only one don’t you know..
forget me not..
memory loss – if it isn’t you and I carrying the cross
the gap too wide to fill – my life silently still..
We sit between chaos and peace
a rare gift are the
moments we share to keep
the chaos spreading us here & there
Splitting us into pieces we can’t bear..
Yet the peace we share is beyond compare..
There is a deficit in my heart – one that shortchanges me if we are too far apart
you alone are my home..
Some share love that reads like a poem-
then there are those that play out like an episode
while others could fill a chapter..
Ours would be a book that continues through the ages
criss crossing all the stages as it gauges the wonder of us..
maybe I’m biased -maybe I’m skewed
But the chant of my heart determines the slant
There’s good, there’s bad and much to be had
But only the good remains..
