I try but words won’t come
My mouth is silenced
My heart refuses to be undone

It’s easy to be pessimistic
It’s hard to be positive
Don’t settle for middle of the road.

All the bad things come back to haunt me
When my working day is done
I’m supposed to make mistakes, supposed to grow

I’m sorry for not being able to love you
I’m sorry for not letting go when it was time
I’m sorry for all of my transgressions.

Please forgive me for every lie I’ve told.
Just a few but I killed the honesty of my soul.

I’ve loved /still love/ you as much as you’d let me.
Tears brighten my eyes as I try to comprehend
Your leaving.

An Old Poem

Time is ephemeral
Fleeting at best
Slipping through fingers
That wrinkle with Age

Live life to the fullest
Smile as wisdom flows
Through your veins
The best is yet to come

Fretting about things not done
Is futile and self defeating
Take cheer in accomplishments
And learn from failures that hurt

–Written by Me

(I wrote that about four years ago.  Been a little too occupied to come up with original content, but I’ll try to come up a little something new tomorrow.  Operative word: try.)

Soul Fade

I can feel you slipping away
Perhaps I need to let
you go today
Things aren’t how they used to be
I think letting you go is
the best for me

The sun is shining on
my face
In my heart is your
place
I will never forget what you meant
to me
But it’s time for me to
finally be free

When times were
dark and I was alone
You let me know
I had nothing to atone
The
night has passed and the day is here
Being
strong is something I no
longer fear

Never Believe

Heard his sweet words

Trusted in them

Made you soar like a bird

Took your trust, used it

tossed you aside

in favor of a new girl

Don’t listen to a beautiful lie

When the ebb of passion subsides

Faith will fade like a gossamer web

Never believe when someone

Says you are special

‘You may be, but only for the moment

Words, cheap as sun

mean nothing to anyone

Verbal arrows

seek to hurt and maim

and bring you to down to a valley of pain

Ignore them, all of them

that say you’re beautiful

but neglect to show you

Fuck them all

let the liars burn

in their shame

Don’t share your passion

that rare inner

flame

that belongs to only you

with those born of cruelty

Let it burn for the One

who proves your beauty

through his deeds

.

An Old Poem of Mine.

Time is ephemeral
Fleeting at best
Slipping through fingers
That wrinkle with Age

Live life to the fullest
Smile as wisdom flows
Through your veins
The best is yet to come

Fretting about things not done
Is futile and self defeating
Take cheer in accomplishments
And learn from failures that hurt
