“Love Added”

How love has survived
through ages of time
no matter how much
surrounded by terrible decline
it’s always found on some incline!

An ever replenishing force
that makes people change
apparent as roads with forks
cultivate a solid resource
detour onto  a deteriorating course.

Makes the silver spoons relinquish their savings
and a poor man give his heart
I wonder…
Where did love start ?

Was it truly given to us?
the cost of love always seems so high
strong & everlasting
example for the test of time.

Love makes the imperiled – just fine
the lonely – complete
the downtrodden – uplifted
an extrovert – discrete.

Changes composure
stills the irregular heartbeat
blurs your vision
sends you reeling 
blinding speeds

Love is something every human needs…

Added to their existence
a part of their life
maybe it would equate
to what a piece of heaven feels like…

Everyone needs a little love in their live. Some of us can be so hard on ourselves, on others and on the world. We all have a soft spot hidden somewhere.

As Always…

Stay Positive!

“That Feeling”

     That feeling …
     that where do we go from here?
     that how did we get here?
     that how to get back to where we were?

     Feels like you can’t even talk
     can’t even speak
     communication is obsolete
     pull and find yourself a shell.

This is how you stay.
a great communicator
but only with what you have to say.

You push, argue and antagonize
keep each other on guard
never to compromise 
you close your eyes.

Try to create and find
wanting escapes
because your trapped in life
also caged in your mind.

Using the allure of fantasy
helps keep you sane
holding onto sanity
are you understanding…

It’s not the fact that you don’t comprehend
matter of fact you relate
that this is…
what it is…

Just once in your life
you are going to lose a friend 
you can’t even pinpoint the need for separation  feeling.

That falling apart
that growing apart
your together
yet traveling apart.

When you hit the dark
that wall
that stifling feeling
that only you are seeing.

You take and hold
affirm and conform
those insults
don`t even chip the others rock hard form.

Their emotionless fortress
nothing you throw
really hits its mark anymore
especially when done in negativity.

Your comparisons
of trying to make others see their wrong
always go wrong
trying to make them feel small.

Your just weak…
they are strong
this couldn`t happen
for and with you.

Lost the long for their touch
still can’t resist their touch
yes you love them this much
mind stays running this much. 

Your done
your confusing
if you focus
you could get this right.

But whats the use
you don’t want your nights
or your future
much less a real reason
to get it right…

Well there are a lot of emotions wrapped up in this one. Sometimes we get so lost in the day-to-day that just the little things, after building up can just cause a massive breakdown of your infrastructure. Being married in a relationship and living and trying to cope with this life, really takes a toll on everybody included. The point is never to get to the point of where this piece has taken. Where you have given up and don’t want to struggle, find or continue. You don’t ever want to get to “that feeling”.

As Always…

Stay Positive!
