25/ 2017: Missing Pieces

It is in my greatest joys,
that I miss your presence
Those moments of chaotic noise
When I can sense your laughter’s absence.

AN: Whenever I get great news or am happy, I have a moment – just a moment, where my heart twinges and I miss the people who made me who I am but are no longer with me.

21/2017: Placeholder

He sits beside me,
gently laying kisses
on the back of my hand,
whispers loving words,
his lips to my ear
longing so clear in
his eyes but to me,
he is just occupying space
keeping this heart from
hurting in your absence
and this body from
going cold..
waiting,
until you are ready to
return to me.

3/2017: Back to the Grind

Get up, move forward, just another day,
can’t stop to think, it will just get in the way.

Keep up with the Joneses, you know what they say,
“if you want happiness”, you just have to pay.

Hold on to your dreams, hold your fears at bay,
telling yourself, life’s a game we all play.

When you finally are done with no one left to slay,
take a breath and remember there’s still Saturday.

Day 365: Unbreakable Ties

We are together in every moment,
by my side, you may not stay,
the heart does not see any distance,
nor any debts to repay.

Bound not rules of obligation,
but strands formed from love and memories,
and then further fortified by passion,
a rope built with shared stories.

Pull the cord as far as it will go,
keeping the faith that love is limitless,
stretch this connection as you grow,
seeking and finding your greatness.

Know I will always be in your corner,
no matter what turns you take,
even when our thoughts seem to differ,
I will stand by you, and not be fake.

For when you think you have the end,
it is always right beside you,
a broken piece, so easy to mend,
until the web once again new.
