The heart wants,
The heart needs,
Not always granted,
At times appeased.
Life isn’t fair,
Sometimes a nightmare.
The key is to be kind to yourself,
Don’t rely on anyone else.
Kind words are blessings,
Forgotten too soon.
Unfair actions of others,
Inscribe our mental cocoons.
Words can also be painful,
So deal them out careful.
Never say never,
Maybe in time you’ll know better.
Fate is a temptress,
So don’t play her game.
Permanence is an illusion,
Deceiving the sane.
Don’t be fooled,
Because some hearts
Will not be true.
And know fear cannot bind us,
It shall only unwind trust.
The passion and power of poetry,
Placing my pain on a page,
There it can live outside of me,
Relinquishing inner anxieties.
Thoughts ramble through the maze of mind.
Spoken out loud,
Resounding through time,
A new understanding.
Nothing is static
We are all reverberating.
Feelings are frequencies
Tuned to our biological receivers.
The echoes of negative thoughts
On the emergency broadcast system.
Harmony is homeostasis in our hearts.
Sometimes in life we build a wall around ourselves,
Only to realise that we are defending against an invisible external,
When the hurt and fear we are carrying is held within.
The madness of it all is that these feelings are not ours to hold.
If we break down the walls and open our eyes
We might just see there is no darkness inside anymore.
There is a light shining, however fragile at first.
We must feed this tiny flame with compassion.
Understanding is key to forgiveness.
Forgiving is key to letting go.
Let go, watch the fire grow!
