Breathe

Breathe

When life shakes our shared realm

And chaos drives us shamelessly mad

Dreams incinerated in a blistering whelm

While passion steers our twisted sights

 

Breathe

When he leers up at me with hungry eyes

With his face buried deep

Hands clenched around my thighs

Moving oceans from below my belly

 

Breathe

While long fingers get lost inside me

Then move to wrap around my neck

Gripping tight, leading me to a place so free

And lips that bring me back to Earth

 

Breathe

When sacred oaths are bound and broken

By greedy souls who want it all

They run and take a silky token

Leaving their mark on tortured hearts

 

Breathe

When stars are lost in perilous stares

Who lure us out and seize our innocence

And all the devilry of silly dares

Will never match the treachery

Of his savage, hollow glare

 

Yet through this all

I will learn to breathe

Too Far Gone

Withering are her morals

Loose are her actions

Alive is her spirit with

Too many distractions

She pretends not to care

But strong are her convictions

Love lost it’s luster now

A slave to Mom’s predictions

If love is the way

Yet no true one

What choice does she have

Than to be done
