Love Won’t Let Us Give Up

August 12, 2013 12 comments

 

Chasing smeared promises

of an armistice in this commotion

I fought blankness in my words

and the ease in giving up crept inside, somehow.

 

Living on a boat, stuck in a frozen lake.

Conversing with the emptiness in my ears.

I saw mammoth towers of strength sink quietly.

I saw power of existence give way to reality.

 

Still, there was a willingness in my dreams

and a last leaf of hope you had given me once.

Holding on to the doors of a personal connotation

was this last verse, waiting,  for me to still write.

 

Yes, I believed in the “me” you once told me about.      

I remembered when you said

that if there would ever be a forever,

you and I would be still in love.

 

So, I jumped into this tomblike dark space

and brought the fight to the moments of despair.

They wounded me with their blessed corruptness

and I choked the last bit of air out of them.

 

Then you came and carried away

my scarred cradle of skin in your prayers.

When I thought it was all done

and the senses of my clock were half seized.

I woke up in your arms.

I woke up at home.

PROUD TO BE ME

“As bloggers, we don’t seek to preach. 

But when we find a meaning – we cherish it by sharing.”

 

 

Accepting intently,

the pungent tang of

just being an ordinary man,

I found my simplicity.

 

Believing unperturbedly,

that I would fail

just too very often,

I found a reason to succeed.

 

Watching anonymously,

the hate these wants

instill in our conscience.

I found signs to let go.

 

Every night,

after letting my unconvinced aspirations

go to sleep,

I found myself.

 

I AM PROUD TO BE ME

 

 

Those Days…

October 28, 2012 32 comments

Some days just don’t feel so perfect.

I decide to greet everyone with a smile.

 

Some days the words won’t just rhyme.

I decide to let the silence sing.

 

Some days the hunger won’t just be satisfied.

I decide to share my bread and wine.

 

Some days it would feel so lonely.

I decide to know myself a bit better.

 

Some days nobody would seem to care.

I decide to appreciate the love within.

 

Some days it would be difficult to hold on.

I decide to let a tear or two wash me pure.

 

Some days it would seem so unjust.

I decide to pray with a little more heart.
