Dissolving thoughts

coffee-968849_1280

A thought
An ember
Long gone
Before I remember

A memory
A curse
Inside my head
It only gets worse

A fantasy
A desire
Images racing
About to expire

An epiphany
The truth
Those memories
Weren’t waterproof

Missing you…

lone-tree-1934897_1280

I just spent two long hours
Pouring out how I feel
Then deleted all the words
That I wanted to conceal

I was rambling on
And nothing made sense
I feel like everything I say
Is in self-defense

I guess I’m just feeling lost
Because everyone is gone
And most don’t understand
How I’ve felt all along

And so the tears have won again
Like they sometimes do
I guess this is just what happens
When I find myself missing you

One last wish

michigan-1823988_1280

Searching the depths
Of the starry night sky
Arms reaching out
With tears in her eyes

And yet once again
There was no reply
So she made her last wish
And said a final goodbye

Reconciled

rain-1567616_960_720

Woefully dancing in the glistening rain
The crystal dewdrops try to absorb all her pain

She spies a shadow lurking nearby
Presence revealed she now begins to cry

Glinting orbs of rainbows shatter like glass
Covering her face in a cold weather mask

Distancing herself from the one who brings tears
The glittering gems try to calm all her fears

She leaps away through the showers of delight
On wings God’s graced her with she soon takes flight

Her heavenly father takes her under his care
The cool gentle rain melts away her despair

Her once shivering body now invaded by light
Frees her from the shadow that once haunted her by night
