Poetry Blogs (2019, loneliness)
I sit here and think without a blink
you fill my memories old
my stale tears, stained to grey
the once beautiful now in decay
Our garden in ruins
our bright red roses
We have stopped the rain
my emerald green weep
a darker shade of grey

Her skin is pale in the early evening
hanging upside down
from the foot of an unmade bed
watching the world beyond the window
where Autumn rain falls upward
and lights divide
No appetite in this dark room
no appetite for days
friends all kept at bay
no rubber masks, just patches of ice
no fireworks, only fallen leaves collecting
passing headlights flood the room

It is a gift you have.
you envelop me in your arms
and I feel emotion flood through my body.
Sadness bubbles to the surface and is gone.
Its strangling grip loosens,
It has no hold over me when you are near.
Instead, you fill me with light and hope
and my heart sings a melody of love and trust.
The weight of life becomes a blessing to treas...

You ask if I believe in God...
How can I not?
To deny my Father
means I leave my existence
to some 30 year old predator
who impregnated a girl half his age
and left her to raise their child
in the wilderness, among wolves
that feed on loneliness and despair.
Without my Father, I would never know
that after suffering comes deliverance,
pain leads to compassion,
forgiveness breaks b...

monsters under the bed,
voices in your head.
rainy days, lonely nights,
the blame game.

I panicked today.
The reality of my mortality hit me.
I believe in reincarnation, this manifestation isn’t the end.
But the finality of my current reality,
stirs a new uneasiness in my soul.
I Panicked today.
How could my soul ever survive
without you by my side,
The custodian of my heart,
in new life torn apart,
incomplete, unable to be one.

Hey there lonely girl,
what are you doing wandering around
these dark places?
Don’t you know that
evil lurks about?
The void is littered
with those who will use you,
scar your soul for eternity.
Listen to my pleas,
I’m begging on bended knees,
towards the light,
no matter how tempting
shadows may be.

There you are beaming
at everyone you meet
keeping it together.
But, I see your soul scars...
It's enough to turn
most souls to dust.
But not us.
Diamonds are made from
coal under pressure.
Show your scars,
keep the faith,
and shine on.
