A Chance of Love

I often wonder why love is so hard,
Why people hold onto a broken shard,
Ignoring the meeting of a new soul,
That might just make them whole.

Closing themselves off from chance
Cause they fail to see the substance
Of letting themselves be adored again
Trying to avoid another loose end

See the worse that might happen
Is feeling that feeling your already in
Though there is that slight opportunity
Of a new remarkable unity.

They let it slip through their fingers
As the past pain still lingers
Rejecting new hope
Blaming their need to cope

Knowing its all just a game
Thinking it will all be the same
Assuming that another they barely know
Could never be what they need to grow

Obsessed with what they think they need
Not seeing its an evil deed
Sadly I used to agree
Assuming what was best for me

I have come to realize
I only seemingly fantasize
When I never had a clue
Of what I believed was true

You wont ever find what your looking for
Cause no one knows who will match their core
That it takes many disappointing tries
Nights of tears and silent cries

Putting yourself out into the fray
Hoping your heart will not be for play
Letting those who desire your attention
might just be of pure intention.

Denying them is denying yourself
Leaving your heart dusty, on a shelf
Protected from everyone who wants to see
What it is to hold onto thee

Might just be worth saying yes for a change
Let the soul once again exchange
For you know you can survive if it did fail
That your strong enough to be frail
I tell you now to let new chances rise
For maybe just once it wont capsize.


Take My Hand

The woe you feel I know it well
Leaving will only make it swell
It’s easy to see the damage done
Covering it up with simple fun

Eyes can’t hide behind a smile
Believing the pain will only last awhile
Seeing the truth through the tone
How your heart feels broken and alone

The strong front you used
Keeping yourself from the abused
Viewing such a wonderful heart
That it should never be apart

To hold it far from fear
Wrap it in a loving sphere
As there is more than pain
Even more love to ascertain

You may not be ready for whats next
Assuming you must be hexed
Though here I shall be
Should you ever desire me

Waiting for you to realize
That your hurt could minimize
When gentle hands you wish to hold
Are also out here in the cold

Though, a gentle touch is needed
For my soul is just as seeded
To be forward could only cause stress
Turning interest and hope into a mess

So don’t fear my intention
For I understand apprehension
I may not be what you desire
Yet my offer would not retire

Though I would no longer pursue
My words would be no less true
That I can make your world warmer
Brighter than the current, or the former

My Silence

My Silence

I’d used to say I love you
That all I wanted was your happiness
Though those words were once true
I realized all you wanted was my bitterness

Since I would say that I knew you
Because you knew me
But that lie left without a clue
Now we don’t know what we see

Shattered reflections of the past
Live in the back of our mind
It’s shadow still is cast
Yet there is no heart to find

Nothing turned out good in the end
Yet we cling to past that will never return
There’s not enough left to mend
Just best to leave it in the urn.

Ashes are just ashes
What we were is just that
Where light randomly flashes
No point in useless chat

So I remain in silence
For nothing more can be done
Can’t afford breathe on this failed alliance
This war is over, never to be won

Broken Wings

Broken Wings

I am nothing but a bird
with broken wings
No greater than a word
No weaker then kings

I sit here wishing to soar
Yet each flap causes pain
Looking up at all I wish to explore
Dreaming dreams all in vain

If someone should just show some care
Mend these wings so I can take flight
I will carry them and show all I can share
For us and only us all will be alright

For the gift that helps me reach the sky
Can never be returned or forsaken
To keep the wonders of the world from being shy
The truest love could never be mistaken

Holding On

Holding On

You are free to fly
As I still wait to die
Still I can not feel woe
As my boat continues to row

My smile remains
Cause my love is near
Freed of her living chains
She can truly touch my heart
Cleansing away all of my pains

I feel her in the air I inhale
Waiting for my final exhale
It is not my time just yet
So she will follow my every step

She keeps me fully restored
For I know she waits for me
She sees what all I have explored
And all I will one day see
For our souls are our reward

My love stayed behind
Now we are combined
As she stays in my heart
Keeping it from falling apart

I can not miss what never leaves
My love and I will never part
She would never let me grieve
There will never going to be an end for us
For our love was not make believe

New Love

New Love

When the dawn breaks
We will know the stakes
For every moment led us here
A second of excitement and fear

The meeting of hearts
Leads to new found starts
Where words match voice
And we see our choice

Nothing seems real
Trusting what we feel
Never thought our hearts could heal
That another could make our walls kneel

Exposed we look upon each others’ face
As our hearts mend the empty space
Fires put out long ago
Spark and begin to grow

Slow but good things come in stride
Humbling we find no reason to hide
We both see the value we each forsake
And the demeaning void of being fake

True Love

True Love

Love is such a tainted word
That often I find absurd
Though I know the feeling well
Resonating a blissful hell

Love is a cancer and cure
It’s only truly pure
Between a parent and their offspring
Not between a finger and a ring

Friction between skin
Does not equal kin
For one can easily toss aside
Another who’s blood differs inside

A choice between spouse or child
should be bias never wild
For your kid will lie and break your heart
Though your connection will never part

As relationships will stumble
Put under stress they tend to crumble.
Few find true passion
An honest form of satisfaction

That wont give in when things get rough
Who do not say “I’ve had enough.”
We wonder why so many can’t find love
For we all have forgotten it like a glove

Love is pain, it is not all pleasure
Rough patches will happen all with different measure
To give up and walk away is easier then trying to mend
Sad one would rather give up then ever try to attend

A child will always be part of your story
For they are part of you and your glory
But a companion is chosen so you can forget
What first brought you together and how you met

If you truly love someone try to work it out
Just don’t stand there and consistently shout
Love like everything has a good and bad side
But when you have it, true hope does reside.
