Depth of life


I was once told by my subconscious to hold on to hugs whenever i felt an overwhelming tear because tissues will fail to wipe away even the pain in my eyes

I was once told that it will be ok if jus once I forgot about joys and happy endings just so i could embrace  a sad emotion for more than a split second, so I made a promise to my feelings to never lock them in me and throw away the key.

I was once told, so i cried, forgot about who was present at that time i just cried. held on to his lingering arms as i cried, his warm embrace dear God at that time I knew he was your son.

Wrapped in smiles, he was sent so Jesus christ was mine. like floods without direction i damaged a surface un-announced. I lost something that day so the moon confessed the lies id been told. I pray to God that my honesty holds me, keeps in one position so my tongue can fails change me.

I was once guarded against my will to touch so my arms wouldnt fold me, my feet wouldnt cringe so i kept walking. As if my tears didnt drown me enough, my heartbeat kicked in and beat by beat a tear dropped, leaving me deeper than before.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
