Chasing Anger

The anger rages inside me

I feel it boiling up

no matter what other’s tell me

enough is never enough

I see the glares and the side way stares

I almost feel guilty

but when you struggle for so long

sometimes your heart comes up empty

courageous is the title I’m given

whether it rains or shines

I fake a smile and laugh awhile

all the while hurting 

I create my own space and for heaven’s sake 

let that be my bubble to think

let this moment be mine 

so I can unwind 

and release this anger peacefully

never again I say and every night I pray

Don’t let my anger get me

Even though I struggle maybe more than a couple

I take delight in my strength

Once was a weakness

Ringing In My Head

Even though I prayed many times
For the clearing of my spiritual mind
To cleanse my soul and unwanted thoughts
To fight against what I was naturally taught
I find temptation hard to fight
Even though I wish I could every night
My soul is bare and open to the world
My heart on my sleeve like a teenage girl
Praying for strength, praying for light
Praying for answers day and night
Feeling like it’s a waste of time
Pouring out my feelings and mind
I fight for myself to stay sane
Caged in a box with only one name
I hear it now I heard it then
I hear it everyday….. It’s all a whirlwind
No one said this was the journey
No one told me how hard it would be
Still I pray and still I fight
Resisting evil with all my might

For The One I Love!

The wait is unbearable
Your lips I can no longer taste
You scent I can no longer smell
The time on the clock goes so slow
Waiting for you is my own personal hell
Not knowing if this will be the last time so I freeze your face in my mind
I will remember you as long as my memory withstands
Your touch, your feel, your grasp, your hand
I wait for the knock on the door or the turn of your key
Waiting…waiting….waiting
Oh! Poor lonely me!
You come, we love, we sleep
Tomorrow comes and it just repeats!!!!

Until next time……..

My Husband

I experienced love last night

took all my breath and suffocated my every thought

drained my blood and flushed my system with insanity

LOVE never felt or tasted this good

even if it’s not real, let us pretend we exist as this

your every emotion I felt pressed inside me

I drank your every word

love is what I experienced

when you kissed me there

love is what I needed, when you wrapped your tongue in my words

nothing tangible, just you in my head

love didn’t know me until you
