The guilt he feels weighs heavily on his mind.

Like sunlight in the afternoon, it comes and goes.

He feels sorrow for a past love,

She was a happy person and he hurt her.

Wretched intentional acts of the past have caught up to the present, disrupting the man’s future.

His new fortress begins to crumble all around him;

 Plans catch aflame, burning a horrible feeling forever in his gut.

The feeling extends it’s vice grip to the mind;

It holds on tight, not allowing him to move forward. 

Constant reminders to learn from past mistakes keep the man in a stable frame of mind….

However, that is where it stays; stable. Not positive… only stable. 

This has locked him in a perpetual state of unhappiness,

Affecting everything and every person that surrounds him.

Nothing will change, either…

Until he learns to forgive himself.

Change

Something we fear

A forceful blow

To our guarded ego.

I travel from place to place

And job to job

A lingering reminder that

Change is present.

Impermanence comes

As an unexpected revelation, 

Yet I know some things can last a lifetime.

Like you and I.

I love you.

We are restricted

So through wires and invisible waves

we send our words, intentions, and thoughts

From lips

Traveling across thousands of miles

To ears

Along the way they are

Twisted, warped, changed

Yet their meaning remains the same

“I love you”.

There they were,

Two of a kind

Apart

But never alone

Smiling, bright, and clear

Their lives their canvas,

Each other their brush

Alarms go off

Jarring reality and rationality

It’s the only opening it needs

Swooping, diving, claws extended it takes over

Twisting all thought into something unpure

You’re the victim, I’m the witness

Yet it can’t stop

I want it to but it won’t stop

The gaps are exhausting, the emotions overwhelming

Yet, when the dust settles and the fog blows over

Only two figures remain

Cold, and wet

Yet they remain

You and I

All others, all else, all of it has changed

Not them

Not us

Let me take your hand

Trust me, I won’t let you go

Let me embrace you

Trust me, I won’t let you go

Let me be your love story

Trust me, I won’t let you go.
