I stand like a stone

in the provision to home.

She intwines in a beauty

I searched the world around .

As her voice , stable and calm

Etches love on my heart

like a December black psalm,

and echoes ripples on the river

with such a vibrant sound.

Where to hold my peace ?

when to begin ?

Longing to breathe

Mother nature in course ,


Time has changed

love lingers in

a place that I find strange

where the sickness

travels on the wind.

Somewhere between gone

and forgotten

Is the calm of acquired rain .

When loneliness makes a soul become rotten

it's nearly impossible to be the same.

I feel it.

Overcome .

A life now shunned.

As darkness bleeds

I am free.

My love ,

I missed you.

Wishing you

would stay with me.

This place is filled with gloom.

I'm hanging by a thread

if I fall ,

I am doomed.

When will sadness be wrong ?

As I await your return

amidst the storm

within the calm.

Driven by madness

I try to defend

your honor and memory

that won't ever end.

From nowhere

to the front line

is just a heart beat away.

I'll thrive for a short time

but , I know I can't stay.

Bring me the light

to clear my sight.

I'm on a journey to love

a heart on my sleeve

remaining calm

until you are free ..
