Soul’s calling

by Teatart

In the dusk of my heart
Doth the twilight still fall
Although eons apart
My love is unworn

As sparse as the leaves
Silently fallen
Oh how my heart grieves
Patiently calling

Perhaps I shall never see
The dawn that doth awaken
Perhaps I shall never be
With he that is taken

Close to his frosted breath
Is all that I yearn
Till my very death
Shall I ever learn?

Tis my life that has no countless meaning
Nor shall I ever possess
For him that my heart must constantly be weaning
Shall never be possessed

Waiting on a broken heart

by Teatart

Where do broken hearts abide?
Who fixes them?
Who picks up the pieces?
Who applies the glue?

Is there hope of a cure?
A war has erupted within
Emotion raging against thought
A myriad of feelings, questions, guesses

A dark shadow has washed over me
I feel burdened with the debris
That has led me astray
Left stark and bare for the world to see

There is nothing more to give
My heart has been taken away
Weighted down and
Drowned at sea

Perhaps that’s where broken hearts go
To the ocean floor
In a place where not even
The light of day dare reach

I hope it will come back to me
One day, in some way
The chains will be broken
And the tide will bring it home

Until when, until then
I wait, I watch and I hope to see
Waiting for the day
You come back to me

A prayer to God

by Teatart

As my heart begins to bleed
I pray to you in earnest
that my voice you shall heed

I ask of you but nought
simply to listen to these words
and to guide me if you ought

I wallow in the loneliness to which I am prone …
but need I tell you this?
For it is to you, and you only, to which I shall these words own

I long and crave for companionship,
for warmth and laughter;
for I have known despair and hardship

She is desolate and cold
and hungry for all who are as I am;
and her prey in a grip of iron she does hold

So Dear Lord
I pray to you tonight
to endow upon me love which I can afford

To help me against those
who cannot understand what my true desires are,
that they one day will see …

You are almighty
you created me – my world
I beg you not to let it crumble around me.

By candlelight
I whisper to you this prayer
AMEN

Heartache

by Teatart

How can I explain to you
that time stands still
when you are not near?
My heart beats in isolation,
A lonely drum tick on a darkened stage

Each breath is a pitiful agony
Every blink everlasting torture
My thoughts are not my own
My limbs refuse to move,
Withered, brittle and frozen

I hang onto a fine thread of hope
Frailly tethered to reality
Will you return to me?
When will you be by my side?
How long my love ‘til you are mine?

I need your touch to awaken this dormancy
Your kiss to restore my subsistence
Although we are elusive strangers
You hold fortress in my very core
And I cannot live without you

Please don’t leave me in limbo
With such remorse and yearning
I stand incomplete and broken,
Aching for your acceptance,
And longing to be made whole.
