I Want A Refund

by picjumbo

No deposit and no returns

I can’t believe how life burns

Chews me up and spits me out

Of its intentions I have little doubt

It makes me suffer and wants my soul

Leaving me to feel like I have no control

Still I’m caught up in what is the game of life

And it is forever and ever going to cause me strife

But what is easy has so very few forms of worth

So as long as I am allowed to be here on earth

I am choosing to live each and every minute

Like I am existing in life’s game to win it

One foot in front of the other every day

It’s beautifully molding me like clay

My hopes and dreams I will revive

Repaying me so that I can thrive

Your Love

Your love is unconditional, no matter how I feel

If I need some attention, you come and help me heel

When life gets all distorted, and things get rough

Your love shines a light, makes me feel I’m enough

Days get dark and dreary, emotions come to stay

Willow my little angel, you help brighten up my day©

An Ode To Depression

young-girl-on-a-walk-near-the-shore-at-sunset-2-picjumbo-com

I let you in, under my skin

Keeping you all for all time, but became a mime

Inviting you to go, you said no

Then want you to stay, hope I can live this way

A bird in a cage, filled with rage

Damn depression you suck, with you I’m stuck

Confusing my reality, set me free

The cycle is just insane, but yet you’re my bane

I push you away, beg you to stay

I must except this reality, you’ll never let me be

Afraid what I’ll find, in my mind

The fog keeps me in denial, it makes me so vile

Continuing I cope, filled with hope

That one day I’ll be free, no longer a you and me©

The Long Haul

fit-young-girl-stretching-her-legs-before-jogging-workout-picjumbo-com

I’m in it for the long haul

Catching you when you fall

I promise to always be there

Forever and a day is what I share

______________

And if you ever doubt my voice

Just know my heart has no choice

No matter what, this love will go on

Because it’s not a sprint it’s a marathon©

The Space Between

young-couple-enjoying-romantic-sunset-from-car-trunk-picjumbo-com

The space between, What is unseen

Love holds me, Time molds me

Life keeps me, Path meets me

Forever and a day, We stay

Not invisible to me, See

You and me, Equal we

Between and seen

Love holds us

Molds us

Keeps us

Meets us

Reality’s Choices

girl-turned-back-violet-duotone-picjumbo-com

A hope, a wish, a dream

But what is the reality?

To feel, to live, to beam

When will this be me?

Someday is just so far away

I must live with my decision

Heavy on my heart does weigh

It’s not always as you envision

I hope, I pray, I strive

But our reality is this

We must choose to thrive

Until our reality is bliss

Hold On

loving-couple-in-autumn-prague-follow-me-to-pose-picjumbo-com

I just have to hold on, this is all I can do

I know I never have stopped loving you

Hearts have been hurt, it’s too much to say

Life will go on, you’ll forgive me one day

And when in the future you look at my face

You’ll forget sorrow and have joy in its place

Hold On© by Mac xx
