This War

mind

You come with hopes to destroy

Everything that I hold dear

Looking to take my joy

A struggle builds, my wall tatters

War injures without mercy 

Until nothing matters

Shattered, broken and also maimed

I’m no longer of a sound mind 

A victory you’ve claimed

My defenses you have torn asunder

Coming in you take your fill

My mind you plunder

Your tenticles reaching in, attack

Find the weakest parts of me

On them you’ll snack

Until I’m just a broken, empty vessel

Nothing but a worthless shell

With darkness I wrestle

Depression is a well trained opponent

This war continues for my mind

One day I hope to own it©

Life’s Connections

I’d like to say that life has been simple, but this is very far from true

When I think of this path I’ve been on, things I’ve had to do

I find myself confused at times and uncertain of what the future holds

That’s the way the cookie crumbles or how my journey molds

People will often disappoint me, hey I will disappoint many people too

In fact I’ll hurt and tear apart some, it may even be one of you

And if you happen upon my heart, please tell me where it can be found

Somewhere along the way was lost, think I left it on the ground

I’ll grieve many losses and wish at times I hadn’t made a friend or two

But things would be much lonelier so I change my point of view

I will take the heartache and sorrow because I have also found affections

And be grateful for my journey and times I’ve made connections©

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

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

Forever And A Day

37747084-love-hd-wallpapers

How long will I believe in you?
Until the seas stop their flowing
Until moon in the sky turns to grey
I will believe in you forever and a day

How long will I desire you?
Until the world stops turning
Until the trees no longer sway
I will desire you forever and a day

How long will I love you?
Until the sun does not shine
Until birds no longer fly away
I will love you forever and a day

When all is lost to me and I cannot find my way
I will look for you until it’s been forever and a day

Forever And A Day© by Mac
