love

Love has been something that came so easily, for me to do;
However, something that I have found being returned, by so very few.
It at times seems to be a game that requires many risks…that requires leaps and bounds;
Leaving so many echoes in my heart, which are sad, sweet, and profound.

I, at times, wander around, looking, feeling, and seeking…..
For someone wanting of the love that I possess, that is from my heart…leaking.
The moments that I invest with my body, soul, and mind;
Seem to always be reciprocated with acts and emotions that are so unkind.

Though bruised and beaten, my heart refuses to get jaded or frozen;
Despite all of the loss, it strives on to find the one that was of it, chosen.
I admit, each time, there is a wall that needs to be broken through;
This wall so easily comes down, never thick…easy to win over on cue.

Being like a game of tug-o-war in life;
Causing so much happiness….yet so much strife…
Love is such a powerful force;
Causing more good than bad…when focused, it is always a straight course.

So I ‘keep the faith’, with each day that goes by;
Playing the game, over and over, and soar like a dove so high…
Getting closer and closer with each time;
Surviving moments that are tortuous, yet more sublime.

“You go back to her and I go back to black”…

Please don’t lock me out…
Please don’t push me away…

Hear me when I shout…
Believe I’m here to stay…

Try to get my message…
And read all my signs…

Realise what you are doing…
Revaluate your life’s design…

This is for the best…
Awake from your dreamland…

Don’t waste time hating him…
Just try and understand…

That you’re in a black place…
And I simply want to assist…

If you open up the doors…
I’ll try help you lift the mist…

We’ll take it at your pace…
Slowly, step by step…

We can talk it through…
Unpick this spider’s web…

I know it’s not an easy task…
I have no magic wand…

I’ll sit and talk for hours…
I’m really yours to command…

But you really have to trust me…
I know that it seems hard…

You’re the key to all of this…
You alone hold all the cards…

I know what you’ve been through…
And none of it’s your fault…

The world has been against you…
In a full all-out assault…

You’re trapped in a prison…
Your own little private cell…

Let’s work out how to escape…
Be free from this living Hell…

I’m not saying it will be easy…
Nothing worthwhile ever is…

But I’ll help you overcome this…
And defeat this dark nemesis…
