Pay The Price

Another tale of hearts for sale

Get them quick before they get stale

Never worry if they match

Life will bring another batch

The broken hearts have been discarded

Left alone, to spoil unguarded

Only another broken soul

Would dare to pay the heavy toll

Although they may be bought for cheap

The heart you get you may not keep

Bound To Fear

Fireedit1

She walks along in stony ire

An emotion that does not expire

In solitude so profound

To her fear, forever bound

All her dreams end in fire

Imagined consequences always dire

Her hope she desperately tries to drown

Never again to be an others clown

Wistful

Old pangs sneak in

Not always in the cover of night

An ache, loneliness

Deep and hollow

Not to be filled by a shared touch

A longing, stretching over a lifetime

Not soothed by laughter

Emptiness, once filled with time

Now feeling the depletion

Of time slipped away

Every day holding hope

Hiding the truth

Letting a smile shine

Praying for that eternal love

Understanding it may never come

Not content with superficial covers

Searching the depths of the soul for an answer

Learning to love herself

Found Wanting

I see the want

Not quite disguised

A brilliant flash in your eyes

I wonder do you understand

Why you can not be my man

My flaws you see will always stand

Our cause will wither from demand

That one of us or both you see

Will crumble under scrutiny

One day again, will come a time

Where it won’t matter that I am kind

You will come to regret your choice

But only after you steal my voice

The past caused so much pain to me

You altered me eternally

Forgiveness has been given free

Yet the memories will never leave

It is fun for us to dream

Imagine all that we could be

Time that’s passed could be redeemed

To entertain the pleasant thoughts

Will turn our hearts into knots

Poison then would trickle in

Rotting out our very skin

I do not want to lose my friend

I was not enough from the start

I can not give you back my heart

Don’t Forget

Never good enough

My love you did rebuff

Hurtful words said off the cuff

Forgiveness is not tough

*

Guilt and shame endure

Could I ever be secure

My heart no longer pure

How can I be sure

*

Lonely minds do seek

Comfort from the meek

Affairs are not unique

Of emotions I dare not speak

*

My heart and mind are guarded

I don’t want to be discarded

Worries surround what’s been started

My hopes and dreams must not be bartered

*

Don’t forget

You may regret

Infatuation already beset

Our needs may not be met

*

Do be kind

Keep in mind

A human is what you’ll find

There can be no rewind

*

Fears rule my thoughts

Tie me up in knots

I wish I had forgot

Don’t leave our minds to rot
