These Words

There is only me,
and these words are my missing piece
to quell the ache
that lies within,
to fuel the fire
and fall in love again

There is only me,
and these words rekindle dreams
and repair my soul
making me whole
and calm the rain
and the lingering pain

There is only me
and these words are my connection,
my mirrored heart,
my true reflection,
the guiding hand
for my master plan

There is only me,
and these words have become my sanity

We’ll Carry On

img_6385

We don’t talk anymore,
our words are choked
by these heartbreaking tragedies
Too much lingers here unknown
There is an ache deep in our bones

Television spills
such disturbing news
but we just can’t turn away
Fear is leaving us cold
There is such sadness
in our soul
And I’m afraid
that love isn’t enough
to rebuild the hope
that there once was
This lonely place is not a home
and this new world
is not our own

But, we’ll carry on

Ruby Red Promises

enlight1

We are forget-me-not days
of hope and forever,
the brush of something
special to remember
We are names inscribed
on captive hearts,
quickened pulses beating
under a carousel of stars,
and our light shines bright,
leaving them jealous every night
We are love stained lips
whispering ruby red promises
and red wine kisses that
taste like happiness and home
