Void

Void, canceled, simply annulled.
Endlessly aching, unconcealed.
Life without you, cause without reason.
Touch without sense, time without season.
I face life now facing a cancerous sore,
A sordid parasite that eats at my core.
All that makes me whole, all I hold deep within,
Leaving me lifeless, or at least not living’.

A shallow face, anguished and marred.
An empty space, scaled and scarred.
Sweetly abiding to a cynical charade.
Secretly hiding ‘hind a fictitious facade.
Still, lost within this heart of glass,
This fragile and yet unfeeling mass.
Lies the remains of a love that glowed,
The gift to you I once bestowed.

But honor and pride now bereaved-
By your love for me so misconceived,
Ripped from my inner depths, impeding-
Mind and body and spirit, bleeding;
Now’s crushed to sand from thy ruthless hand,
A cold stare I just can’t understand.
I feel that somehow, somehow I’m dying,
At least my soul and all that’s underlying.

A simple void, is that what I’ve become?
The hollowed sphere on a pendulum.
Swinging back and forth, emotion to emotion,
Never once stopping, nor slowing the motion.
No reason, no answer, no justification.
The creation of a sterile imagination.
Just passing through time as time passes me.
Merely a nothing- nothing, merely, left to be.
Sightless and soundless, unseen and unheard.
Mindless and boundless, obscure and absurd.
All empathy lying ungraced, unemployed,
I live my life dying, unembraced, a void.

Beyond Forever

I dream only to prepare
My soul awaits,
I’ll see you there
Now I know where heaven lies
Re-step deep within your eyes
Witnessed by the stars above
Free to hold the one I love
Feelings that I hold so true
Beyond Forever
I’ll wait for you
And when at least your here with me
Paradise we will truly see
All that I had dreamed and more
Souls will bond, and hearts will soar
Reflected by the tears of now
I offer to forever vow
In the wind you will hear my cry
My love for you will never die
Surrendering to what is right
I cast my sorrow through the night
Forever will again be true
Beyond Forever I’ll wait for you.
Candles flicker softly on a table set for two,
There’s no one on the earth tonight except for me and you.
 
A nice romantic dinner and a bottle of chilled wine,
And we are here together in a moment stopped in time.
 
A love so few have ever known and this is its birth night,
Alone within our little world, you and I and candlelight.
 
So soon we will set free the feelings that we want to share.
And I am held here spellbound by your laughter in the air.
 
Thoughts of love like falling leaves,
Swirling in the autumn breeze,
 
Flow in our minds and in our eyes,
A tender look and longing sighs,
 
We touch and as the fire starts,
That we have kindled in our hearts,
 
We kiss and hear the angels sing,
As heavens gift to me you bring,
 
No more to live my life alone,
And in your soul I  found my home,
At peace within your loving arms,
Captivated by your charms,
 
And happily I’d die for you,
Here at this table set for two.
 
 

Husband and Wife we are through thick and thin
Sometimes times are rough

Other times they are happy

I love you and care about you to show

My love by doing the little things that count
Like scratch your itchy back,

Rub your sore limbs after a long day at work.
Waking at the hour of four to kiss

You as you run out the door to work .
I love and care about you it pains me to see you tired
