Promise #poetry

Promise
My sight is clear Eternal hope sinks into my soul
You're the wind rushing over me,  Lifting the hairs along my skin,  Sweeping away all hurt,  Filling me with glow, a determination A devotion
Your passion lights me from within Your affection lulls any pain Your love fills me completely
Forever is my promise And my promise is yours

The storm #poetry

The Storm
It’s the moment you realize how quickly you can be crushed. How rapidly you crumble. Love should be warmth and light. But this was so cruel, so swift. No time to stop and think. Consider. The words continue to spin around you, a tornado you can’t escape. Slashing your heart, bending and breaking your soul, your spirit.   Life tilts, uncomfortably. You question your worth. Stability. Your very happiness. You flick the tears away, suck in the soft sobs.
And pray for the end of the storm.

The Old, The New #poetry

The Old, The New

It is done

Damaged, bent, and broken

Jagged pink lines scar my thoughts, my soul

My paper thin skin squeezes my body,
Flaking off like the paint from the hundred year old house down the lane

 My heart shrunken, shriveled with tattered veins

Each step more difficult than the one before

I know this day will be my last...

The peek of dawn appears on the glistening white horizon

Cheers and celebration flow into my ears, igniting something new, different.

Beats thrum through me, awakening my cells, shaking off the worn

Time fades away

Scars fade

Hurt heals

Blood rushes through my veins, strengthening my heart

I straighten, my body shedding the last feelings of old

With a renewed hope and a smile, I step into 2018
