Disconnect poem

Is there common ground
That we have found?
I’m yearning to belong
We’re breathing
We are hurting
But the pain you hide
Somehow I know inside

Not a day goes by
That I don’t die
Another part of me
I’m losing
I am stranded
Won’t you walk with me
And find out what might be

Life is simply there
No-one can share
The path you have to take
We crave more
Real connection
I’ve been searching years
An ocean made of tears

On this boat i drift
I cannot shift
My body will not move
I’m lifeless
I am foolish
That I chose the knife
Instead of living life

Read the message in
The rusty tin
I’m begging you to see
You are beauty
And alive
In ways most never are
I’ll love you from afar

Forevermore

For Someone Special (yes you)

I want to take you by the hand

And walk with you, talk with you

Just be with you

I can’t take the pain away

I can only share it as much as I can

I can listen, I can care

All I can do is be there

Though that will never be enough

What do others see?

Someone quiet, someone shy.

And they have no idea why.

But if they could see what I see..

And hear the way you talk to me.. They would know just why I love you

And they would surely love you too

Sometimes I tell you how, if only I could, I would make things better.

It’s true

I wish we were closer,

We could try to take baby steps into the big bad world together

And screw the past that hurt us

I guess what my rambling words add up to is that I’m so thankful you came into my life. You are a gift and you are beautiful. Thank you for being you.
