Forever Yours, Forever Waiting

At 5 am
When the world is caught between
And sleeping
Life and death
I lie alone
Thinking of what could be

Never in my life have I felt more intensely
As when I have been in love
Between love
I have forgotten what it is to feel
But with you…
Something feels right

I know you’ve been hurt
By memories of the past
Mixed up in twisted situations of the present
Because of your kind hearted nature
It was that and not your beauty that first drew me in
For your heart sang a song
That only I could hear
That only I knew completed mine

But always know
That despite my pain
Buried in my solitude
I will always be here
Always waiting
To hold your hand
And gather the shattered remnants of your heart
For that one day which may never come
That day in which I confess
All that you’ve meant to me

I will help you to rewrite those memories
That have broken your heart
But in the end
I’ll remain in my solitude
To suffer in silence
If in doing so
You find true happiness

This Sick and Tired Existence

Some days I feel like crying
And wish the world away
Some days I feel like dying
And need someone to convince me otherwise

Under strength and independence
Is always vulnerability
This façade was bound to crack
Under Atlas’ burden

All my life I have loved
And given all of me
This once I ask to be understood
This once I ask you to see the paradoxical nature that I am
This once I ask to be loved

Everyone deserves to be loved
To be held
And talked to
Late into the night
I’m no exception

A romantic at heart
A realist by trade
A constant conflict I must face
Day after day

There are times I won’t understand
These are the times when you should forgive me
These are the times you take me into your arms and tell me everything will be ok
These are the times I need you most
To stand by my side when I feel the most alone
To love and support me as you should
As I have

If you cannot love me at my worst
You do not deserve me at my best

Don’t Feed the Dragon

It started as a spark
Which was blown into a flame

It started as an idea
That turned into an obsession

I never used to like you
At least not in this way

You were something special
That I will admit

The words were not mine
But soon became an echo
Guiding all my actions

I am nothing
Without the world around me

I am a judge
Too easily influenced

First impressions are everything
First impressions are easily swayed

I started talking more about you
Spurred on by their encouragement

Now you’re a permanent feature
Fixtured in my mind

I can’t sleep
Or breathe
Without thinking of you

Each day I tell myself to forget
Each night you come back to me

I can’t stand this anymore
I can’t keep dreaming of what can never be

I’m sick of writing poetry
That will never capture this conflict

You make me shake
As though I don’t have enough sugar in my bloodstream to sustain me
You cause heart palpitations
As though there is something I have to fear

I can’t take this anymore
I can’t stop this flood of feelings
Why did they feed the dragon?
