I remember the first time we kissed

It was the meeting of two love starved souls, coming together

When our lips met, I was flooded by a I love I've never known

When I touched your skin, I wanted to heal every scar made upon you, and remove all the unnecessary burdens placed upon your mind

I wanted to steal the pain from your mind, even if it meant that I would go stark raving mad, by taking it in me

Just to make you whole

I wanted to sacrifice my life on the bed of your broken dreams, and make them happen for you

My eyes wanted to see you smile more days, than you did not

I stared at you, and my words wouldn't come. Because all I could see was your soul shining like a million diamonds in the most brilliant sun

And now I lay in a river of despair, praying for the river to take me to a place of healing

My eyes turned upward to a grey, stark, raining sky

My hands stretched out on the waters of my defeat
like Christ on the Cross

I pray aloud, " Oh, Father why hath thou forsaken me?"

About Me

I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
