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.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
