Sea of Change

Like a turbulent storm-ravaged sea

My emotions are laid out to bear

Twisting and churning in a miasma of torment

Feeling that there is no-one left to care

But with wild abandonment the winds blow

Crashing waves against devastated shore

Upon which stands a figure with loving grace, wanting to know

The pain that is ever present in my soul and ever wanting more

This figure that shines ever so brightly

Casting rays across this turbulent sea

Calms and soothes, caressing me lightly

Washing away all my sorrows, making me see

That this sea, that rages ever on, can cleanse my soul

Leaving me washed and whole

Father Gone

Even though you are dead and gone

I still feel you watching over me

I am a better person now

From what I learned from you, don’t you see?

Through life’s trials and tribulations

I walk these empty streets

With your ghost by my side

There is no place where I can hide

You stand vigilant over me

I now know, in your own way

That you loved me

Hidden Beneath

The face belies the emotions that are hidden underneath.

Feelings of despair, that runs so deep.

If you peel away the layers, they will pour forth from out of the soul,

Upon the ground, where they pool and soak thoroughly, leaving the body cold, empty, and bare.

Untitled

I’ve become consumed with life’s trials and tribulations.

I feel the destructive forces, destroying everything that I know.

It overwhelms me, like a torrent of emotion.

Falling farther from the precipice of my sanity,

Losing ground forevermore, I have but one wish:

For all those I love, to think of me, but not to shed a tear.

For that would be my greatest fear.
