I Am

hoody_d7b3p3_3038373b

Tucked away from the view of the world

I am 

Locked out of sight of those that do judge

I am

Riddled with contempt of other’s strength

I am

Hiding my face and refusing to let anyone see 

I am

Afraid to breathe lest I divulge my hiding place

I am

Breaking people in two and families asunder

I am

Ensnared by the turmoil that eats away inside

I am 

Fallen from the light into the darkest of times

I am

My name spoken on the lips of the persecuted

I am… Depression©

Strength In Love

img_7150

by SBDMB (MM)

Light peaks across the horizon and festive tones of amber bloom

Gently I look to you and watch the hues caress your features

Knowing that all will be well wherever the darkness is no longer

Washing away all impurities and taking away all of your pain

Golden embers of fire in your soul will ignite once again as flames

You shall come forth as a phoenix with power born of strife

Heartache may be your bedfellow but overcoming is your soul mate

Exhaustion looms and threatens to overtake you once again

Hold fast and look to me for strength as you walk this path of life

For I am Love and I am here to guide you along your way

I Want A Refund

young-girl-reading-a-worlds-best-seller-book-picjumbo-com

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

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©

Ethereal Castle

oh my ethereal castle 

these walls and this structure

they had been built up to hold me

but i have brought much devastation

in their wake i am left to find solace in pain

nothing left to keep me, it’s all utterly crumbled

and now i am left picking up the pieces of them both

piece by piece and brick by brick i must rebuild this fortress

for without it i fear the vultures will pick at my wounds eternally 

yes truly i must find strength and have faith that we will survive it all©

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

Luster Lost

6942bf71f714cd2250e59125b1287a74

I feel like I’ve lost my luster

Some days no strength to muster

Why does life get so hard?

It is just leaving me so marred

Emotions can be my bane

Often leaving me going in sane

But then I believe in feeling

Even with outcome unappealing

I won’t give up dreaming

That one day again I’ll be beaming
