Poems. Prayers & Promises

Wait


I sit here and wait
My bruised and battered heart
Tells tales more fearful
As hungry seconds slowly pass
In frightful moments
I didn't fall.

Essence of life
Truth is dying before my eyes
What am I to do?
 Love greets me as a stranger
Conspires with me to escape
Gracious, each time.

No memory stays
A Teflon heart wasted away
Come to me and gaze
Move over time, dance on the surface
Find me racked with guilt
Come for me, now.

  1. "In frightful moments
    I didn't fall."

    My favorite line in this...it says it all. It's not how often you give your heart away, but rather holding onto your essence, that inner strength that protects you from breaking when you fall. Well penned.
