Thoughts form a gorge
Fingers hasten to the keyboard
Reserve no expectation from creation
It is a pointless drive of frustration.
If some display nonchalant attitudes
Mantain your distance alike parachutes
Our wars have no time for the uncouth.
On an informative basis, when we explain
Some mistrude; “she is” full of complaints
Totally oblivious to the meaning of our claims!
Nevertheless I will not be shunned & ashamed
To exclaim & proclaim:
Breathing is a cherishable treasure from my lord
But also, a 24/7 physically exhausting job.
Against the thoracic wall my heart kicks fast & hard
How doesn’t the skin inside even become scarred?!
Sometimes it remains eerily silent
I marvel at the fact of being existent.
One organ assigned for subsistence plummeting downhill
Its reliant, bosom companion retaining & targeting a kill
None besides you witnesses my body on this level of being ill.
For split seconds I wondered, why is life not clear like black & white?
Then again, despite, few perplexing questions ambling along my mind…
As you decide, likewise you save me from despise & help me resign.
During flare invading nights
Your presence suffices at my side.
During sleepless hours prolonged
Your bond I attempt to make strong.
Your name mended & soothed
Cracked, bleeding wounds.
Your name melted my soul
Causing tears to roll.
Your hand laced mines so tight
Moments I was taken aback by fright.
Urging me to continue forward
For the ultimate award hidden inward.
Your splendor mesmerizes the eye
From earth upto the sky so high.
The cup of your love over spills
A drink of powerade to swim.
This is your letter containing wisdom
Acceptance enhances freedom
To sail with contentment.
These are conversations we share
When devils dare me to despair
A life jacket I wear
And on oath swear;
Universal signs scattered everywhere
Affectionate awakenings in each tear.
& as trials descend,
He is always there
To help us fare.
So when you feel all alone
Talk to the 1 who owns your soul
Manager of that crushing load.
Divine wine will pour
Sweet intoxication to soar.
As I recline against the pillow
Grateful for a bed to wallow
Captive feelings mellow.
I find writing the best place to dive
Simultaneously sink & survive
Words spontaneously arrive
Encouraging me to thrive.
This particular week has been
Tougher than “usual” to breathe
But there is peace out of ease
Stemming down to my beliefs.
True to clues
The nights stillness speaks a unique language
To those who do not perceive it as a bondage
