Pleading eyes…

 

art-2108118_960_720

Your eyes they pleaded in earnest with me

To forget about the sordid past

The look was so forlorn and wearisome

Such that my heart seemed to break at last

 

I felt I had betrayed you

With the truth my heart and soul had spilled out

And I walked away feeling regretful

Fraught with unease and plagued by doubt

Love… beyond a shadow of a doubt

Sad-Love-Couple-Wallpaper-hd-Photo-Images-Pictures

I’ve loved you for as long as I can remember

Maybe even more

I’m still not sure how or when it began

But our love has endured

We’ve faced mountains of opposition

And still we continue to hold on

I have loved you beyond reason at times

Even feeling foolish for doing so

There were times when I questioned everything

I cannot forget how you tore my heart in two

Or how you decided to mend it all at once

The patching of it was quite painful

Like a threaded needle piercing my flesh

And yet I wanted you to do it

I figured how else could I ever live

I couldn’t very well survive with a gaping wound

So I gave you a second chance

The opportunity to fix what was broken

There are days now when I hardly even notice the scar

And yet others when it’s still all I can see

You were the one person I could trust

The only one I had ever truly loved

But the inconceivable sins of life crushed us

Both of us were literally smashed into the ground

And normalcy hasn’t been the same since

Perhaps this is progress right here

In these words and in the light of each new day

I’m discovering that I would rather die

Than to let you go from me

The shrapnel is still buried deep within my chest

A burden I will likely take to my grave

Yet I know I have no other choice

Because if I were to try and let you go

My soul would still cling to yours

The bond is too strong and the knot too tight

It’s simply impossible to fully pull away

And so I’m trying desperately to let you back in

To trust you again the way I once did

And love you beyond a shadow of a doubt

Uninspired

writers-block2

Flat and fake scribbles her pen.

Can she continue to do this once again?

Empty words spill across the page.

Is this the end of her writing days?

Fictitious rhymes are all she’s got.

Definitely lost what it takes to write her thoughts.

Be Somebody – Thousand Foot Krutch

“Be Somebody”

I’m just the boy inside the man, not exactly who you think I am
Trying to trace my steps back here again so many times
I’m just a speck inside your hand, you came and made me who I am
I remember where it all began so clearly

I feel a million miles away, still you connect me in your way
And you create in me something I would’ve never seen

When I could only see the floor, you made my window a door
So when they say they don’t believe, I hope that they see you in me

After all the lights go down, I’m just the words you are the sound
A strange type of chemistry, how you’ve become a part of me
And when I sit alone at night, your thoughts burn through me like a fire
You’re the only one who knows who I really am.

We all wanna be somebody, we just need a taste of who we are.
We all wanna be somebody, we’re willing to go but not that far.

And we’re all see through, just like glass
And we can shatter just as fast
That light’s been burned out for a while,
I still see it every time I pass
It was lost in the corners of my mind,
Behind a box of reasons why
I never doubted it was there,
It just took a little time to find and even when…

I feel a million miles away, still you connect me in your way
And you create in me something I would’ve never seen

When I could only see the floor, you made my window a door
So when they say they don’t believe I hope that they see you in me

After all the lights go down, I’m just the words you are the sound
A strange type of chemistry, how you’ve become a part of me
And when I sit alone at night, your thoughts burn through me like a fire
You’re the only one who knows who I really am

We all wanna be somebody, we just need a taste of who we are
We all wanna be somebody, we’re willing to go but not that far
We all wanna be somebody, we just need a taste of who we are
We all wanna be somebody, we’re willing to go but not that far

I’m just the boy inside the man, not exactly who you think I am
Trying to trace my steps back here again so many times

When I could only see the floor, you made my window a door
So when they say they don’t believe, I hope that they see you in me

The doubting kind…

dawn-1869135_960_720

I used to have a friend

He was stubborn as could be

And no amount of encouragement

Could ever make him see

 

For he believed in all the lies

The enemy brought his way

Never realizing his true value

In all he’d do or say

 

There was no way to convince him

Of his importance on this earth

He just never could believe

His own real worth

 

Nothing I could say

Would ever change his mind

And I’ve learned you can’t assure

Someone who’s the doubting kind

Hesitant

words-679914_960_720

Hanging back and somewhat unwilling to reveal myself to you

Evading concerns and hoping everything will work out in the end

Slowly reacting, as it’s hard to face the problems which exist

Indecisive and unsure, of where life will take us from here

Tentative to talk to you, for fear of losing what is most important

Afraid of what would happen, if we were completely honest

Nervous about the future and what could potentially happen

Torn between what could be and what most certainly is

Glad this doesn’t represent us anymore

Happy or sad?

rain-1567616_960_720.jpg

A blurry-eyed mess

Is what I’ve become

Sad and distressed

Really quite glum

I think to myself

Why am I this way

So many happy things

To find in a day

Yet I seem to let the bad

Overpower my spirit

Leaving my heart sad

With no way to cheer it

Magically I wish

I could turn this around

Begin to move forward

Stop wearing a frown

I guess life just isn’t

As simple as I’d hoped

I’ve got to get through

Learn how to cope

Someday I’ll likely

Figure it all out

Can’t keep giving in

To all of this doubt

In time most things

Come to be resolved

We either make it through

Or have nothing left at all

So what I hope for

Is that the good will stick

That everything inside me

Will just finally click

Perhaps I’ll wake up

A cheerful happy mess

Full of fun and laughter

With no signs of distress

It’s a wishful dream

One I don’t foresee

Only time will tell

If I’ll ever be happy me

It’s like Groundhog Day all over…

couple-1853996_960_720

Why do I seem to forget

And why do I sometimes doubt

What your amazing love

Is really all about

 

I can feel you in the morning

Caressing me with your hands

Yet by nightfall I’ve forgotten

I just don’t understand

 

Your smile reminds me once more

As soon as I awake

And the reality of your love

Is really what’s at stake

 

And yet day after day

I place doubt into my mind

I even question my love for you

Waiting for you to remind

 

It’s like Groundhog Day all over

Remembering all that you’ve said

I hope that someday your promises

Will finally stick inside my head

Open up your heart

open-hearts

Open up your heart
Feel the love which surrounds you
Invisible as it may seem
His love will astound you

On days when you’re wrought
With overwhelming pain and doubt
Don’t give up the fight
And let your pleas ring out

God is surely listening
Though you may not believe
Waiting patiently beside you
Holding your hand while you grieve

He understands your woes
As he’s been in your shoes before
He’s calling out to you
From a welcoming open door

All you have to do
Is accept his invitation
Let his never-ending love
Be your motivation

Your Smile

smile

Your smile has changed

Of this there is no doubt

And I’m still in wonderment

Over how this came about

 

The changes that I see

Are a beautiful display

Of how God can take a man

And change his whole array

 

It’s as if you’ve been remade

Someone I hardly recognize

And still I wonder if it’s real

Or just a very good disguise

 

And yet who am I to doubt

The changes that I see

Your word should be enough

Without lack of faith from me

 

Something I need to work on

My smile has been lacking too

Time for God to change me

Like he is obviously changing you

I believe in you…

16715bd816012450a2771a87f06be499

Forget all that you’ve been taught

And rid your mind of all negative thought

 

You’re amazing in every possible way

What more does a person have to say?

 

Caring, thoughtful, genuine, and true

Anything else you’re believing, is just untrue

 

I believe in you like the sun believes in the rain

So stop believing all the lies, they’ll only bring you pain

 

When you’re having all of your usual doubts

Just look to heaven to figure it all out

 

And remember this…

 

The devil, he wants you to believe in his lies

When will you wake up and realize?

Just believe…

Have you ever noticed that when people start to doubt themselves, others start to doubt them as well?

So, here is my quote for the day…
