Day 222: King Sisyphus

I think I understand how King Sisyphus felt, every time he almost conquered that damn rock. It just rolled back down to where he had first knelt and prayed this was the last time he took this walk. Struggling to the end, only to see it all come undone. Clawing back your need for a… Continue reading Day 222: King Sisyphus

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

Why can't I make these vows beautiful? As glorious… Continue reading Day 117: Why Can’t I…

Day 91: Stay

Do you hear the words I whisper, As you turn your head to see her. Your eyes linger lovingly at her beauty, A gaze that undoes me with its crulety. By my side is not where you want to be, But destiny first brought you to me. Clinging to belief of​ our true love story,… Continue reading Day 91: Stay

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
