Upon the Waking Morning

Night time falls on me like an unwelcome guest

Sneaking darkness into my soul

Leaving my thoughts of you distressed

Slowly my mind slips into that blackhole

Thoughts of you permeate my mind

A longing to feel your body next to mine

The beauty of you I always find

Wanting to wrap around you and entwine

But all I find is that empty hole

Apart from you has left me distressed

Each of us must face the night alone

Our love at this time is suppressed

Until the day that I return

My soul is left in mourning

It’s your touch that I yearn

Upon the waking morning

Moonlight Excursions

night-913046_960_720

Walking out under the stars

Left to ponder what is ahead

Wondering where you are

Trying to overcome my thoughts so dread

Upon a stream of glowing light

I look upon a dark sky above

My eyes take in a beautiful sight

I think of the one I love

A kiss to the heavens I send

I walk this trail alone

Hoping my heart reaches to you I pretend

All the way from here to home

I take these moonlight excursions

The rays of which fill me with aversion

To the pain I feel being apart

From the one who holds my heart.

Failure

maxresdefault

A life full of promise

A life wasted away

Full of endless failures

Broken promises strewn along the way

Days and months and years away from home

Missing holidays, birthdays and so many special days

A heart breaks because I have gone a separate way

Chasing a chance that slowly slips away

Not thinking of the destruction I have left in my wake

Failure chases me day after day

Why do I keep going down these lonely trails

Reaching for something, to no avail

Thinking of the future

While throwing away the present

Leaving tears, and a broken heart of the one I love

When will I learn to be content

Instead of living a life barren of

 

Missing You

lonely-man-136400664789603901-150923153428

Missing you is all I do when I am apart from you

Wanting you is what I need when absent from your arms

Feeling your touch is what I need to sate my desires

Taste of your lips to quench my hunger

You are all I want

You are all I need

To hold you, be with you each and every day.

Today, Tomorrow, Forever
