A Hole Filled In Me - Poem by Howard Johnson

She is strong and I am not
She filled a hole in me that was hard to spot
I am greatful for that she gave to me
At risk it may be

A payment I want to render
unto you
Finding you personaly to give the due

Should I choose a street
Or something with a beat
A path
With growth all over

Are there perils to be found?
Should it be that from drunkenness
There will stumbling all around

Is there a grass covered hill
that on top you can see
Or it may be a small incline up to me
Might you lay amoungst the spring time flowers,
Dreaming it may be.

What choice will you do?
That I may come to be by you

Disconnected cynicals ways of living
Am I not
Do I have strength to pervail over myself
A choice should be made
Or should I not
Like on hot day
trying grab a heat wave.

Do you fit bettween the beat of my heart
Has the stress from being there
Torn you apart

Is love for purchase
Could it be
Or is it just risk free

    I enjoyed this, a good, solid read. I loved your language in this stanza,

    Do you fit bettween the beat of my heart
    Has the stress from being there
    Torn you apart

    This was beautiful imagery, fitting between the beat of a heart, it just makes my own heart sing a bit.

    Now, this stanza had me thinking and puzzling a bit,

    Is love for purchase
    Could it be
    Or is it just risk free

    I always think of loving as one of the greatest risks you can take. And in some ways, not loving is another risk. But I never really think of love as risk free. So I liked that you took a different tact. It made me think and ponder, which I enjoy and I even suspect it is good for me.

    Peace,
