Show Me Love

Give me a souls exploding
Temperature rising
Sing it to the rooftops, kind of love
Give me an eyes wide open
Up all night
Can’t eat
Can’t sleep, kind of love
Give me a promises kept
Compromises met
No lies, kind of love
Give me a forever
Hand in hand
Till death do us part, kind of love
Someday
For now?
For now, just give me love.

The Promise

I walk into the day
Wearing hope as my sweater
Allowing the sun to feed my soul
Promising myself that today

I would set myself free

I walk into the day
With you by my side
Laughing away the pain
Promising ourselves that today

We would set ourselves free

I walk into the day
Surrounded by smiles
Existing uncomfortably in the crowd
Watching as they promise themselves that today

They would set themselves free

I walk out of the day
Surrounded by bitterness
Barely surviving in the crowd
Watching as they promise themselves that tomorrow

They will set themselves free

I walk out of the day
You’re no longer by my side
Saying goodbye forever
Promising ourselves that tomorrow

We will set ourselves free

I walk out of the day
Hope is nowhere to be found
Darkness invading my soul
Promising myself that tomorrow

I will set myself free

A Walk Behind My Heart

I walked behind
my heart,
Covered up to the thighs
in its rivers,

freezing from the chill
that it became since 
life served it grief
beyond winters,

only seeing
the calm of blood that 
passed the rest of my 
body on the inside.

we learned to flow
together,
to search for ourselves
On the walls & floors 
of my flesh,

with no control as I got
closer to feel its beats, 

as blood became my 
Feet I swam

without ever learning
but knowing & feeling 
how weak I could be 
in its strength.
