Poetry

Keeping you for a While


Barreling through

Break these walls down

Teach me how to feel

Bring love back around

 

Life is too short

And I don’t care if it is wrong

Happiness has stayed away

For far too long

 

I can only do little things

It seems so unfair

To have someone like you

Trying so hard not to care

 

You know just how to

Make me smile

I would do anything

To keep you for a while

 

And when the day comes

That you are gone

I will be content in knowing

I made you happy before you moved on.

All That I Have Taken


His eyes seem to

Penetrate

Deep into my soul

Finding strength

Where I see weakness

Finding love

Where I see hatred

Making sense

Out of a heart

That was once a mess

He travels

Through my soul

And finds a solid

Foundation

He is so full of love

Forgivess

And dedication

I don’t deserve

All that he has given

All that I have taken
