some contrast…

~

some

would say

i wear my darkness well

~ too well ~

in fact…

this may very well be true

but

without

‘some’

darkness for contrast ~

how will one ever see

my light shine through?

whiskey

~

he would pour himself into a shot glass

and

drink his soul away ~

away from those he loved dearly

and

the world around him

~ everyday ~

~

he would bathe his spirit in a slow, slow burn ~

allowing the heat to dissolve his pain.

he did not care to live his life ~

only

to drown himself in shame.

~

there was nothing we could have done,

except stand by him

and

reluctantly watch

ζ

and

ζ

love a man with a spirit

so broken,

so conflicted

and

so despondently

lost

enlighten me

~

your breath upon my sky

clears the gray fog

and

opens my eyes to all

that is light

and

good

and

loved

to let go

i need to purge these feelings

deep down inside ~

and

until i do,

they will eat me alive.

look, listen, feel

i look in the mirror

for

someone

i cannot see.

i listen

for

a voice

i cannot hear.

i search

for

a heart

i cannot feel.

i am reaching

for

the person

i used to be

~ but ~

she is nowhere to be found.

if ~ will ~ can

if you look at me, i will smile.

if you touch me, i can breathe.

if you kiss me, i will melt.

if you accept me, i can soar.

if you love me – truly love me

i will live…

…can live in peace.
