Shaken to my core,
There’s no me anymore,
I’m tired of being this breakable thing,
Of the apologetic words that I feel so forced to sing,
I love you,
These are the only ones that matter,
So please look past my analytic ways,
My tortured past,
And my undying haze,
Because I swear to you these feelings will always remain the same.

Puzzle Piece

You made my soul come alive,
In a heart beat,
I am completed,
By your love and everything within it,
You rescued me when I didn’t think anyone could,
With you the pieces fit,
A puzzle solved,
The riddle resolved.

The wanting has stopped,
The games have started,
The players are in,
This is not for the light hearted,
The pain has sprung,
But with hope longing has not yet ceased,
For if it does,
I fear I may well too.

But then you strike,
And removing it for light,
Bringing clarity and love,
In a game I thought doomed,
You made us a victory.

Tears so big,
I can hardly see,
Everything hurts,
Because within you is me,
And I’m so scared your going to leave,
Because I’m needy and weak.
I say the wrong thing,
I want what I shouldn’t,
With an intensity that’s almost potent,
Loving you is killing me,
Because I’m scared that what you will see,
Is this fragmented path that runs too deep.

A Dynasty and A Death

Falling apart I break,

Bursting at the seams,

Eternally haunting my own grave,

Longing and dying,

Too tired of trying,

I, in the pits of my despair,

Am forever a child,

Treated as both young and old,

All rolled into the one,

I am a dynasty and a death,

A dying and a dead,

Both under the same sun,

Oh dear God what have I become?
