Epiphany

I NOW SEE
The beauty inside the ugly
Warmth beneath the icy facade
And words in the silence
ALL a chorus of life that sings to me
A melody of renewal in all it’s splendor
It enwraps me in the sounds of contentment
Reveling in the vision that has always been there
Just waiting to be experienced

Serenade

Love sings a serenade
My heart knows every beat
The words pulsing a rhythm
That flows through me
Giving meaning
To every breath I take

Yearning

How long have I burned
In the fire of you
An eternal flame
Now just a flicker
Bitter ash
Laid at my feet
Tinged with a memory
That time once consumed
What’s left of my heart
That use to beat
And the sweet joys of love
From which it now retreats
Holding back the sorrow
Dreaming of yesterday
That should be our tomorrow
When will the spark
reignite the fire
That still burns with desire
When will I quench the yearning
Be touched by the flame
Without burning

Pain

I’d take the pain
Over and over
For the brief time we loved
And until my last breath
Pain will hold you to me

Word

When silence becomes a habit, it’s hard to find a word that will be louder… Unknown

Using all of your senses to include the Past, Present & Future (a challenge)

It’s plain
Stark white
Clean of touch
Sense or smell
It can’t be tomorrow
Cause today has already tainted your lips
It must be yesterday’s whisper
Before the sounds of memories colored the way

Choice

You can’t choose who love invites in

Grief

Sadness overwhelms me today
On this day, I lost you
And my life, my perspective, my relationships and all to come are affected
That’s how much of my life you encompass
An endless chasm of sorrow
Flows continuously where you should be

Abyss

Everyday is the same
Mundane
Life, melding with the gloom
Free falling into an abyss
Words are lost
In the blackness of my mind
Only emptiness and darkness
Shadowing the misery
I find comfort in the void
Living with the silence
Echoing my pain

Silence

In the darkness shadows flicker
Holding secrets
As long nights loom
Where no one speaks
