Rachel Henley Poems
Basking In Solitude
There are no thoughts I share,
My woes that are entirely my own.
I suffer from loneliness,
and it shakes me to the bone.
No matter how deep the love,
Or how strong the bond,
I feel there is no place for me,
No place where I belong.
This will destroy everything I love,
But before Everything I love destroys me,
I bask in solitude like a comforting shade,
Protecting me from the affection I crave.
Hurt? Woe? Are all thats left for me to show.
Past Lovers? People I have not yet let go.
Will this define me?
I will never know.
Navigate My Heart
you are the pulse, that races through my blood and bones.
You have made me human and vulnerable, where i once was stone.
once i thought i was destined to be alone,
and upon finding you, i have found my home.
they cast eyes that do not know or comprehend,
that our love is just a beginning, without an end.
judgements that have been declared with an ignorant mind,
look inside me for regret, and regret is something you shall not find.
