Hearsay

They say that age
calms down the rage,
a lonely tear
the greatest fear,
no longer care
too scared to dare,
repeating days
but still okay,
secure in skin
while clearing sins,
In love with peace
living at ease
.

They say that time
forgets past crimes,
it gallops by
releasing ties,
as the breeze blows
the pain will flow,
forgiving cheats
without defeat,
erasing shame
not placing blame,
remove old blues
sweep in the new.

They say that change
can be arranged,
stick to your goal
hold your control,
knowing you know
intentions grow,
take things in stride
just let it ride,
keeping your eyes
on your own prize,
focus on you
wishes come true.

Await

I will find solace in the end
with no rare views left to defend
.
My heart exposed,
intentions seen,
bringing to light what lives in me
.

A time will come where I shine bright,
all unseen thoughts will come to light
.
Exposing truths,
erasing lies,
unraveling,

negative ties.

I will find solace in the end,
invented tales will simply bend,
falling apart,

repairing hearts,
as meant to be right from the start.


I try my best to live life right,
so I could sleep well through the night,
conscious at ease,

a sense of peace,
sharing the smiles that I receive
.

Haven

Life made up new,
built just by you.
Intentions true,
with open views.


Kiss filled with grace,
placed on your face.
Floating in space,
love is embraced.


All goals are reached,
learn to then teach.
A living speech,
no need to preach.


Live and let live
release then give.
Do not relive,
learn to forgive.


Fulfill your soul,
make yourself whole.
By letting go,
obtain control
.

Veer

Past problems invade
when dreading reoccurrence.
Keep thoughts positive.

Complete

Entwined in what I feel for you.
eyes swollen shut, forbidden fruit.

Expand the thoughts that you withdrew,
I know you well, feel your heart too
.

What should I do? no sign or cue,
go separate ways to live as two
?

If not this life then life turns blue,
swallow this thought as the main clue.


A painted frame, shiny and new.
we did not stall, instead, we grew.


Entangled wings with which we flew,
connections make emotions brew.


Filling our eyes with pretty views,
Strongest of bonds, adhesive glue.


Looked in your eye, instantly knew
forever mine, feeling so true
.

Pretend

Sinister smile
behind your act,
you always get
what you attract.
Back-peddled acts,
hope to retract,
or face regret,
as a pure fact
.

Big eyes stunned look
while getting caught.
The lines you spoke,
everyone bought.
No grateful sense
for being taught.
Snatch with both hands
no second thought.


My confidant
laughed at my lack.
Carried swift blades
silent attacks.
Gifts of dark will,
behind my back.
My trust and hopes,
your sneaky snacks
.

I thank you for
the fun-filled times.
Filled with laughter
feeling sublime.
Facing steep paths,
choosing to climb.
Cocktails of joy,
skipping the lime
.

Memories drown
within my head,
as time moves on
I find them dead.
Another bond
I came to dread.
Wishing you love,
hoping it spreads
.

Hear

Whispered words of truth,
sound much louder than screamed lies.
Silently listen.

Turn

A prolonged time
that sailed along,
reciting lines
in a mute song
.

Extended time
that held too tight
ignoring signs,
hopes fly like kites
.

Repeated time
revolving tune,
essence that forms
a warm cocoon
.

An evolved time
clearing mistakes,
provide heartaches
with needed breaks
.

Infinite time
learns to abide,
control the speed,
that you provide
.
