For You... I Will Go Along With It

I will admit what I observe daily,
Does not exist with a worthiness to mention.
It will be difficult.
But for you...
I will go along with it.

In fact...
I am ready to do this.
Only 'if' you admit,
You have a preference for sugar and spice.
With a wish to keep prioritized,
The nice and bright side of life kept highlighted.

And that which you dislike,
I will assist in keeping 'your' illusions alive.
To then pretend we are totally unaffected.
Until we both get home to realize...
Time to take to feed upon delusions,
Does not satisfy the reality of our limits.

When you should ask,
What it is I plan to prepare for us to eat?
I will reply...
'The feast is in the eye of the beholder.'

    I have prayed that you would welcome me back, ever grateful. I love it here.
    My heart is heavy but pure. If I cry, no one needs to share, simply for the bud
    To be shared, and to blossom in other hearts.
    Pain, I endure over over again, many times over if I must.
    No not just endure, I would willingly plunge my depth into that deep sea of sorrows.
    For Him, my sweet Lord, Pain is so great but sweetness is greater
    And so divine, soul would be willing to taste it forever.
    Your Will be done; and strike me dead,
    At once, Lord
    If I displease You on the matter of my heart.
    Amen (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
