break me... again!

you’ve broken my heart
over and over again

i’ve let you

extending the fragments
of which remain in tact
to be shattered
ever more
by the persecutor
of my soul

i lay it out before you

crush me
destroy me
make me fall apart
over and over again
i beg of you,
break my world apart!

your visit last night

you came to me
last eve
creeping through
the shadows of my dream
i felt your eyes
my life unfolding
without you

and it was there
where your presence
was felt
that i came to know
i would always
have you
if only in my dreams.

The Chosen One

it was not i
who chose life
it was life
whom chose me
oft times
considered mundane
yet precious the gift at hand
i unwrap it
carefully, precise
seemingly careless at times
unfolding the corners
placing together the pieces
realizing it not to be a puzzle
but a portrait
of the brightest colors
darkened shadows
a kaleidoscope of fragments
adjustable, amendable
ever changing the angle of which
i hold it
it is a gift
handed down to me
a gift
meant to share
my dutiful obligation
to respect it
with objectified care.

there is a chill that’s seeped
into my cells,
cold, still, numbing,
the days
wondering how long,
it all must take
for passion and desire
once again to stake claim…
as rapidly as the freeze
seeped into my veins,
slowly, the coldness will lift
a vague memory
of another dreary winters day...
cultivating ambition
where otherwise, lie none
the freeze to thaw
and life...
to once again,

Flip Side

on the flip side
it could always be worse
so I flip
and I flop
as a fish out of water
contented in knowing
it could always
be worse
