For In Silence

girl writing.jpg

These words we write
Are written in silence
The laughter once there
Has been taken

In silence we write
These words of longing
Of desperation
For each other

The more words I write
The more you do
Thoroughly filled with
Our memories together

Yes in silence we write
But not in sadness
Rather full of hope
Aspirations of tomorrow

We send these words
Through the silence
A connection between us
Staring into destiny

Only a Night

A pure life

New to this world

Soft and sweet

So precious

You kicked with spirit

 

It only took a night

I wonder

Did it happen fast?

Or slowly?

Not that you can answer

 

I feel the stiffness

You’re so cold now

Your eyes don’t shine

Your chest doesn’t rise or fall

You’re dead; D E A D

As I hold you now

Is it wrong that

I don’t feel anything at all?

At Odds

Heart & Mind

 

I don’t totally believe in my decision

I thought that I could hold true

But now I’m second guessing

What I truly wish to do

 

Both mind and heart are at odds

My mind a wisened, old man

My heart a young, love-blind fool

With equal weigh in demand

 

What to do? What to do?

On this path will I continue?

Or shall I stray off my course

And take a short cut to you?

She Thinks 1000 Thoughts

How do you think you know me?

You say that you can read me by my face,

When in actuality what I think,

Only a fragment comes out in what I say.

Don’t you hear them?

“Beware of the girl with the golden stare;

What she says

Is not all that she contemplates.

Like an iceberg,

Only a percent ever breaks the surface.”

Yes, that’s me

The girl of a 1000 thoughts, a 1000 desires

But only a word

Of them will ever escape my mouth.

Fake A Smile

Fake a Smile.jpg

 

I’ll never forget the way it felt when

His stubbled chin grazed the back of my neck

Or the way that his chest expanded

With his each and every breath

 

Neither will the marks of other people

Nor will time make my memory fade

Of the warmth I felt wrapped in his arms

And the heat I felt in his strong gaze

 

I wish that he was here with me

By my side through the passing of time

But I know that is impossible to ask for

So I’ll just fake a smile and pretend that I’m fine

 

Just A Little Faith

Ephesians 2 4-5

Cold belt around her throat
She’s beginning to choke
She sees stars and her vision clouds
She recalls his mocking face in the crowds
The pressure in her head exploding
Her brain is close to imploding
Her loneliness is tearing her apart
She hears silent whispers to her heart
Saying,
I love you
I love you
She screams
You never loved me at all
The whispers louder
I Love You
I Love You
She cries
You tricked me; so that I should crawl
The whispers intensify more
I LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU
She releases and falls on the floor
He was the one who tricked her
He was the one deceived her
He never told her he loved her
Her heart made no sense at all
Why would it tell her these words
From someone who never gave his all?
And only then did she realise
Her heart was not trying
To trick her through his lies
It wasn’t him who hurt
Tricked and tossed her aside
But it was actually He
Speaking truth and true love
That he bought for her
With his own precious blood
He loved her
He loved her
He loved her
He wanted to save her
No matter the cost
That’s why he gave up his life
And died on that cross
How can it be, she cried
For my life for you to save
He tells her very softly
Only through grace
And it all can be yours
With just a little faith

More Wild than Lady

More wild than human

 

More animal than man

That’s what she is

Her power uncontainable

She challenges with a hiss

 

More creature than human

A fierce warrior

Undefeated champion

All who challenge are inferior

 

More feline than girl

She prowls her domain

Unstoppable creature

Could she be tamed?

 

More wild than lady

She’ll accept who’s gentler

And most protective

For him to be with her
