Day 279: For a Moment

For a moment in time, an angel walked on Earth. For a moment in time, we were embraced in your love. For a moment in time, my world was protected. For a moment in time, you were my brother. For a moment in time, I had a savior. For a moment in time, you made… Continue reading Day 279: For a Moment

Day 220: War Tales

If this is what, I fought for, then why do I sit here, silent and searching? This is not the reality I envisioned, the dream I was promised, when I held you in my lap, watching the blood flow, mixing with the saltwater tides. How could I have known that it was my life, my… Continue reading Day 220: War Tales

Day 152: Break

You dare when you have a straight path, but roads can change and lines become blurred. A untended way becomes a trap, and clarity is lost. Let me remain hidden in this jungle, of broken dreams and unfulfilled promises. Until I can carve a new way, with a machete forged in belief and love. ©… Continue reading Day 152: Break

Your mother’s care, your father’s worry, A lover’s gaze, fleeting touches, memories… Continue reading Day 131: Perfect

Day 85: Respite

I never thought that the one I needed sanctuary from would also be my Refuge. How do I reconcile The want in my heart With the eyes of The enemy before me.

Day 12: Memories

The door to your room stay shut, I walk by each day, my hand itching to open it. To burst in and scream "Appa-I'm home." Yell at you for staying awake until I come, Late and careless with time, Forgetting that your eyes will not shut, When your girls are not in your house. Then… Continue reading Day 12: Memories

Day 6: Timeless

If I could see you once again, I would leave 10,000 kisses on your cheeks, So even as the wetness of my lips vanish, You would feel the feathery touch of my love. If I could hold you hands once more, I would let them hold my face gently, Taking the burden of doubts and… Continue reading Day 6: Timeless
