Over Exposed From Love

I can use all of the metaphors,
The clichés of love
But action takes a lot of doing
Cannot leave this heart in a cloud of dust

Being blinded by hopeless endeavors, No

Sorrow, You are done
Get away from me

Ruined myself for the bad
For another's self righteous good
'After all, The most diabolic entity
Never thinks they are doing anything wrong'

Words in disarray
Have no idea of what to say
Lived too long mourning this heart
Deep inside a mausoleum made of anxiety and regret
Fretting on a threat from broken dreams
As it casts doubt upon these burdens
Created by the faith I bequeathed
Upon smiling faces looking past
These ambitions that were once for just them

Epiphany, I have an epiphany at last!

Hey, I have come this far
Who am I to even doubt myself?
The past is dead and gone
In fact I overcame my own self destruction
So why should I even try destroying myself again?

I deserve better
I deserve much better!

You are the light that shines darkness away
The dreams that digs this heart out of an early grave
The blue skies beyond the grey
A rainbow that shows me the way to your golden heart of grace

I will use all of the metaphors,
While going beyond the clichés of love
Feeling what my heart desires
Expressing myself like never before

Beauty, I see you
Through pink and red visions
Floating amongst hope
As the sun shines out the dark clouds
Creating a day of warmth not felt ever before

Before, I always let these visions pass on by
But now with clarity
I know what must be done

Through this weakness
May these strengths be seen
As I make myself known
I am here! , Do you see me?
I cannot get but embarrassed when I see you
One day action will be another's welcoming
And the fear of my existence will never be felt again

Love, Give me a sign
I have always believed in you

I am exposed
This is hard for me to be
Come forth, Please
Feeling so nervous inside…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
