Bestowed Upon Me

hand-1549399_960_720

You stood on the other side

Tucked behind your shadow

I was wicked

For you, for me, for life

Decrepit deceit runs

Long in my blood

Bestowed upon me

As the child of a demon

Bestowed upon me

As a soul of the damned

Where was my light, my splendor, my wonder

You reached out, dared to touch me

We stared and smiled

Silent and begging

Hopeless and wanting

We wanted to pull away

Instead, we burned

Turned to ashes

Together

We started anew

Frantic Hope

reflection-2922045_960_720.jpg

I got a message the other day

It plainly said they took you away

You told me you were innocent

This was a crime you did not commit

I had frantic hope that this was true

But then I learned the painful truth

There’s so much I wish I could change

Things that I would rearrange

But all we have is the right now

And we’ll make it through this somehow

Uncompromising

squirrel-2116751_960_720

Remain ever fearless

Uncompromising in your quest

For absolution

For salvation

Despite devotion and support from others

Understand that only you can count on you

You are your foundation

You are your blanket

You just are

And you are stunning.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Happy International Women’s Day! Stay true to you and always caress your soul.

Branch Out

tree-3199003_960_720

Branch out into the dark

Don’t forget your bleeding heart

Blanket the past with deception

Beat back truths with despondent dejection

All that time you wasted then

Plastered inside your plastic grin

Today is tomorrow’s yesterday

What then will you beg to say?

If only, if when, if you, if why

How can you care when you didn’t try

Step back into your simple darkness

You’re gonna feel it regardless

Starting Over

travel-1756150_960_720.jpg

Shuck that fear from your bones

So what if you’re all alone

Adjust your sails and press the hell on

Time to sing your own damn song

You deserve the best in life

Even when nothing seems stable or right

Take it by the day, by minute, or each second

Here, it’s your fate that beckons

All that pain you trudged through then

Now consoles you; your best friend

And that’s okay because you win

Each day when you begin again

Permit Me

live-461731_960_720

The devil paid me a visit

Whispered I was beautiful 

Told me I was the one

Then he opened my heart

Swallowed my soul

He spit out my bones

That seed of self-doubt

Hangs on like a long, final note

That rancid shadow of misery

Permit me to tell you

That I’ve had enough

Permit me to introduce myself

I am raging glory

And I own this moment

Silhouette of Your Soul

nature-3108052_960_720

I laughed at the moon yesterday as it hid behind a cloud

And I stood on our mountain; broken by the wind

The silhouette of your soul

Slipped into my dreams

As I pondered painfully

What’s next

It was so much like you

Yet, it was nothing at all

The crow of my dimension

Led to my descent

Down that long lonely path

I searched for redemption

But all I found

Was a silhouette of your soul

~~~

Entertain

cd-cover-2993231_960_720

 

I entertain you

With broken words of heartbreak

You are not alone

In this wretched world

I’m here to share your sorrow

To collect your tears

You’ll live through all this

Wounds become scars of healing

Time is the great reckoning

Of forgotten love

Ok, I thought I saw that ‘entertain’ was the word of the day, but the word of the day has disappeared, so who the hell knows. I have been busy with school, and also finalizing my novel – my books sales came to a screeching halt. Most people that bought the book or received a free copy have not left a review. I guess that is just how it goes in the beginning.

Thank you so much to anyone who bought it or picked up a free copy during the promotion. And thank you even more to anyone that left a review! ❤

Love you guys so much for all your support and following. I am still working on Book 2 of poetry as well. Keep your eyes peeled!

❤ Have a great Tuesday
