Sometimes Love is Eternal

I’ve had enough

I’ve wiped my hands clean

The breaking is evident

I’ve loved and lost

I’ll clean up the mess

You’ve made of me

My bones are weeping

Begging me to look inward

To step in from the cold

To let you go

If only my bones know

That I’ve been loving you

Since the dawn of time

And sometimes love

Is eternal

✨ I no longer fear the darkness or the pain of loosing you. I welcome the challenge to exist and be at peace in the midst of chaos. I am confident in the knowledge that words can no longer hurt me. I am flexing my brave, living my truth and accepting that my purpose is greater than all my fears. ✨✨

Holding off the impending darkness….


No one notice that the days are getting shorter, that hope is fading. No one seems to care. These days I notice everything. The whips of smoke that seems to spell your name in the sky. The sweet call of hummingbirds reminding each other of their undying love. The way memories taste like ash and licorice. There’s a fountain of pain that rises up within me, each one recounting my failures, my regrets, my past. The countless ways my heart wraps around dead words, trying to bring them back to life. This world once light me on fire, filled me with hope, kissed me each morning with it’s glorious beauty,  now I search the days trying to find something worthy, something that will remind me that life is worth fighting for.

Life is a battle

A cadence of irreversible decisions

The truth bleeds out

From the edges of time

We see nothing

We feel nothing

Until it’s too late

Death lick the nonsense

That flowed from our tongues

We have out played our hands

The curtain is falling

Our nakedness exposed

The air is tight

Thunder is gathering

Exile memories

Bond together

Fighting for survival

At night we sleep with the demons

And rise expecting the world

To bend to our will

We are mere puppets

Walking a thin line

Between life and death©

Revenge taken

Fingers held to the flame

Burning up

On the inside

Man made walls

Could not keep me out

I do not come in peace

let me show you my scars

And the pain still entomb

within my heart

This day is black

for my eyes can only see

The darkness you imposed

within me©
