TURBULENCE

Rising river of rapids swallowing my breath

There is a storm in the distance

Echoing a familiar pain about to strike

Like a fierce wind that catches you off guard

Slamming you to the ground, broken, and shattered

The sunlight came for a moment

You were my moment

In the haze of each new day, I felt you

The warmth of your soul brought a new hope

Then your fire raged and tore through everything good

Leaving a charred wreckage of ash and destruction

Not only scarred, but obliterated

The land is barren with inescapable hurt

Somehow, the turbulence in life will dissipate

But not before

Eliminating all light inside me

All will become but a memory

Of the sunny storm cloud

That was an electrifying lightning strike

Called you.

IT WAS YOU

 

Before I dreamed him………..it was you

I dreamed my first kiss…………………it was you

I smelled his skin…………………………it was you

I saw the outline of his form……………it was you

I imagined true love……………………..it was you

My heart skipped a beat………….it was you

I was made for him………………….it was you

I felt like a woman…………….it was you

The days came quickly……………….it was you

The distance was torment………………………it was you

I felt whole……………………………………it was you

I waited a lifetime for him………………………..it was you

To death I’d commit my soul………………………..it was you

Forever in eternity……………………………………..it was you

He secures my heart……………………………….it was you

Tenderly loving me………………………………it was you

I longed for nothing but him…………………………..it was you

I am complete……………………………………………….it was you

No one compares……………………………………….it was  you

I gave all I had……………………………………..it was you

I am lost without him………………………………….it was you

My heart stops beating…………………………………it was you

I feel deaths sting………………………………….it was you

Emptiness hurts inside……………………………..it was you

I will love him eternally…………………………it was you

This pain annihilates me……………………………..it was you

I am with him always, near or far…………………….it was you

Feroz is his name, the love of my life………………it was you.

Delusion upon intrusion on a broken heart

Whispers of a devilish nature

Constantly wooing me with promises

Keeping me just close enough to believe

Bending back and fro in the pattern

Looking left and right, spinning around

Here, there, they are everywhere

Invading my thoughts with every heartbeat

In a maze of false persona and grins

I start to smash the mirrors of deception

The path becoming clear

Or is it a smoke screen of refection

No, it’s real

A light of hope shining now revealed

My broken heart of our dreams

There was never us, only me

Merely a dream of myself that grew

Including you to see the possibility of life together

Hope

Dreams

A future

Love

With you

Who was never really there, invading my reflection
