She hides ink in her pen
But even when
she doesn’t write
she is full of fight
Her eyes are light
but her tears are rain
hiding her story and her shame
the truth is hard to swallow
Breathing it in
choking and trying to grin
her poems she could have shown me
our shared history.
When the rain cries for me
would you follow my story?
It’s not ordinary.
I trap them in my fire, in my hell
I broke into her house just to tell her
I loved her soul to bones
I just can’t leave her alone
old Father Time was sleeping in his arm chair
but I found we had traded places
the woman with many faces
and many time lines
my crime is I wasn’t able
To put all my cards on the table
I am the life you never lived
the man you couldn’t forgive
for leaving you alone on your marble throne.
Wounded warrior put away your guns and blades
Don’t you know that truth cannot be enslaved?
Even if we fight it’ll shine through
In the actions that we do
Put away your violence
In the silence of room
No matter the darkness
The light will always pierce through the gloom
Love is the connection between us
Fight fear with love make it go away
Love is constant it is the energy in atoms
That binds reality together
Love of mother universe who’s image we are created in
Fear is missing the target of our purpose to love each other
Forgiveness rises like a Phoenix making our hearts begin again
Though our tears fall like rain
Make them tears of joy and not pain.
You never see the wood for the trees
You never see the wound until it bleeds
You feel free until you see the chains
Lifes pains are driving you insane
You cannot help people until you know their pain
You cannot appreciate the sunshine until you’ve tasted the rain.
