Ache #Poetry

Reaching for you

Feeling nothing but air

They say air is weightless

But when you’re alone

It’s crushing

To your lungs

Heart

Mind

The space is filled with the weight of nothingness

Until in the presence of you

My lips are soaked with the words

Flowing from the solitary space in my mind

You are who I want

Need

Love

Unrest #Poetry

Her heart didn’t beat with the same excitement anymore

The sparkle in her eyes glossed over

Her soul was a target full of holes and dents

She would not allow herself to be completely shattered by this world

All the negativity

Selfishness

And hate

Her will unfurled

Engulf her broken pieces and holding them tightly together

She was strong

Her love, kindness and charity began to pull forth

She was more than this horrid confusion

She would stand for herself

And for those who aren’t able

Her voice will be hers

Filled with compassion, truth and love

She will raise her voice high

For those who need aid

She will share her humanity freely

Because the world needs to be embraced

Not ripped apart

The Eye of Judgement #Poetry

When death comes for me

What shall I face?

An Angel with gorgeous wings, surrounded by white light?

A golden chariot, just for me?

Will I have the toll to pay to the Ferryman?

Or, will my soul just float through the ceiling rising forever higher

Seeing my loved ones, who have passed, holding hands out toward me?

Pearly gates towering as I face Saint Peter?

Anubis weighing my heart against a feather?

Or do all I deserve to be met with is a void?

Dark, black and forever uncomforting

Will it be a vibrant reality or a grainy delusion?

The question throughout ages

What will I see?

Toxicity #Poetry

An uncontrollable ache started in her mind

She tried to bandage the wound

Listening to music, reading and trying to write

It should be fixed in a jiffy

But this toxin was undeterred

Seeping around the corners of her mental blockade

Infecting every portion of her being

Consuming every inch of her soul

Painfully leaving her hollow

No antidote to be found

Her will to fight snatched away

She succumbed to the darkness

Gaze #Poetry

A ragged face stared at her

The dull blue eyes glaring at her in judgement

Digging deep into her being

Finally resting the harsh gaze on her soul

Chills involuntarily quaked through her body

Making her body quiver

The wrinkled face mimicked her moments

Causing her heart to beat faster

With a trembling hand, she slowly moved towards the furrowed brow

She gasped in shock when her fingers met this sagging cheek

The surface was unnaturally cold

And confusingly smooth

She slowly ran her fingers down the flat surface and off the edge

She gasped when the reality hit

This wasn’t a stranger

This was her image she was viewing

She let out a wail

Tears began to stream down her face
