I will do my best to make all I do today pleasing
to You and in accordance with Your will—
“...By each new crack of dawn
I am to be reborn
As each new day
my first breath I inhale
—breathe the name
of your saviour in your hour of need—
Touch'd by glory of morn,
bless'd by grace of m'Lord:
Bless me in your arms,

Here I fall.
Through the evenings,
Through the meadows,
Soaring through the wind,
Cutting my way through.
In the darkest hours,

And I'm not scared.
'Cause I know you're down there to have me.
FragileI remember morningsFragile1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
when I would wake up with the sun
and you would be asleep
because you were a creature of the night
and I lived in the day
and no matter how hard I tried
I couldn’t manipulate myself
to live in the darkness with you.
So I would read in the corner of our mattress
by the pale morning light that managed
to leak in through the barricades you made
and I would hear you crying in your sleep.
I’d never heard such a painful human sound
but I didn’t dare disturb you
because I knew that consciousness was
so much more painful for you than
whatever horrors reached you in the Dreaming.
Months later, I sit in a similar pale light
much closer to the darkness than I ever
thought I could be when I was naive.
I have a peaceful urge to put out my cigarette
on my thin, pink skin
and to name the charred scar after you.

My significant other.
Don't be my lover
Be my friend in our world of pleasure.
Don't be my friend
Be my other, confident in our trust
Don't be my other
Be my lover, as we join together.
Just be you
Next to me.
Destined or Star CrossedIf I have to wait forever, if I must adore her hidden curves from afar, I shall do so with my head held high. I shamelessly have waited this long, though shamefully I found distraction. As did she, mesmerized by one so tiny. She nearly self destructed. She and I have talked about so many "she"s that we’ve lost count, she telling my story by accident and I sharing hers by happenstance. This is us. Hopefully getting where we should be, somewhere warm, inviting, like each others arms and hearts.Destined or Star Crossed1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
