My Strength - Poem by Stanley Oguh

I fell down so many times,
I lost everything in my mind.
I could no longer find my rhymes,
until your support became my
guide.
I was once so lost and weak,
thoughts consumed me so
that I was to finally face my defeat.
The poetry in my heart,
the fire that was blazing,
the reason I could soar with the
stars
has now lost all of it's heat.
You became my strength,
the reason I found my pen.
You became my best friend,
the reason my ink would last
and it's trail of rhymes had no end.
We fell in love and the entire world
froze,
it was just me and you and our
hearts.
But this love; it's only support was
hope,
our distance was the distance
between
the people of earth and the shining
stars.
So I said, my beloved, let us enjoy
and share in the gift of our
companionship.
Many things I kept hidden in silent
voice,
feelings I couldn't express in words,
so I simply refused to ever again
mention it.
Your support was the rope I held on
to,
the very thing that kept me strong.
Remember, that those very same
feelings
were the very same ones I felt too
and why I could sing those songs.
Now you want to go, now you say
good bye,
now you depart with tears in your
eyes.
Now you've gone and my heart
wants to die,
along with the poetry it wanted to
write.
