Amen

by Teatart

‘Tis my heart that laughs
And sings the psalms of my disposition
For once I was lonely
Lost in my private maze of emotion
Consciously floating day from endless day
Seeking nought by cared devotion
I wallowed in my isolation
And sipped the goblet of bitterness
Seeing solely the reflection of sallowness
And its inverse of sorrow

‘Twas not my heart
A bed of roses
Sprinkled with thorns of poison
And decorated with the blood
Of those who dared to sit on its thorny throne?
Was it he who felt as king or jester
Daring to possess that which would be not possessed?
And yet it was you
Who washed away my fear
And stripped me of my thorny crown

I am naked and bare to your eyes
Uninhibited by your love
My heart to you eternal shall be
And to another I shan’t pray
For you have laid me open
Desperate for your caressing touch
Wanting nought but yourself –
Intertwined in you is my world,
My breath of life
AMEN.

The last fight

by Teatart

I search
I find
I lose
I cry

The cycle continues
Never-ending
Infinite in it sadness
Complete in its continuity

I want it to end
I want it to be different
Too much heartache
So much pain

Day after day
I have chosen to endure
Against all odds
My head held high

But my resolve has grown weary
Without an ending in sight
My sword is as a burden
Fallen limply at my side

On one last chance
My hopes I pin
If happiness be the spoils
Then I’ll choose to fight
