Mesh

Our hearts mesh as we’re wrapped in one another’s arms and you rest your head against mine. I don’t want to let go I want the future to feel as secure as this moment. I want love to be apparent always. Consistency. A safe landing spot for you and me. A place to love strong and feel free. Secrets unhidden and resolution always possible. A desire to grow together. No ultimatums shall be given. Rejection shall not be a concern. Acceptance as we are and forgiveness when we fail one another. Honesty and sincerity. No need to hide.

Vulnerability and companionship are powerful. Helping us become strong as our souls synchronize yet deeper. Love deeper. Just a look in the eyes and a gentle smile can feel like being inclosed by your arms. The hearts meeting back up and the worry’s vanishing. A softness and warmth.

“Shining Through My Tears”

Have you ever doubted your purpose? Have you been trying to beat the depression and escape the deep end of the pool? It’s that little piece of hope and faith that’ll pull you through. Life’s all about being open minded, honest, and willing. It’s about knowing there’s a power greater than yourself. This poem was written on a darkened mind racing night full of self hate and a dash of hope.

Let me show you the good, so I can hide the bad

smile real big so you want see me sad

sometimes I can’t take life, I get so mad

I suffocate, then I remove the bag.

 

I have too much to see to give up just yet

I have to keep breathing, so I catch my breath

I know everything that comes my way is just a test

I pass them one by one and plan to do so with the rest.

 

I’m staying in school and have to finish this degree

even though life’s a struggle and shit don’t come free

we to often try to face too much alone and we lag to get on a knee

God I pray that you please don’t give up on me.

 

There is reasoning behind each and every thing

you just have to figure out what’s worth the pain.

 

Figure it out and that’s what you fight for

the things that aren’t you walk out and shut that door

along the path to success, trust me, you’ll again fall to the floor

that’s when you find it in yourself to fight some more

put back on that smile and never show if your hearts sore

and to keep you lifted up is what friends are for.

 

Love all people and show them respect

the ones that don’t, sooner or later will regret …

 

… Because feeling all alone is no fucking fun

so be nice to others and deliver them some sun.

 

I want a good job, a family, the American Dream

but sometimes I wonder what if that’s not what’s meant for me

until then I’ll keep my head up, in order to see

because I have too much potential to give up in a world with endless possibilities.
