Salvation

Liquid Fire:
Sorrow melts and reforms
As heat seeps from my skin

Frozen Water:
Reflections of my memories are reborn
As frost settles on me once again
-
The liquidsparks flickered:
And I winced at that one image
A voice suddenly stutters
“I grasped forgiveness after the carnage.”

Restless echoes linger on
Retelling me stories of yesterday

Reminding me of when my courage was withdrawn
And the countless times I accepted those acts of hate

My scars shimmer every dawn
Each one has a wordless tale of mistakes

My eyes recorded the wrongs
As I relive the history I can't escape

Snowflakes descended gracefully:
As a cold-burning tear rolled down
I forced myself to rise after that dire humility
“The life I will only ever live is my own.”
-
Broken Smile:
A shred of hope still breathes
To defy views of hatred

Mortal Desire:
A brighter future- I will seize
For this is my own salvation
My tears nourished faith
My hope got me through another day

This poem was written for my project, titled: "The Other Side Of The Sky"
In volume eight: Letting Go
Time Is The Cure
Time Is The Cure
Right hand of destruction
Left hand of creation
It's a never ending cycle
A fatal revival caught in a downward spiral
I tear down reality’s mask
As I build up a truth to give hope a chance
The veiled darkness decays
The guiding light fades
I let go of an old pain
As new tears wash it away

-
The sun always rises
The moon always sets
The rain subsides
The storm is put to rest
Clouds confide / Memories detest
Skies collide / Cries confessed
Light shines / Dark regrets
Pain hides / Peace professed

A new day awaits
An old night forgotten
Tomorrow I shall awake
To cradle what remains unbroken
-
I can't erase my mistakes
But I can't let them define my fate
There's always control
There's always faith to hold
Opposites are locked together
I am the sinner; I am the confessor
With time- comes change
Agony and serenity dawn a new age
I was told that my hands aren't meant for hurting
I was told that my hands are meant for healing
  My Unbroken Hero
My Unbroken Hero
I didn't want you to stoop so low
Though your gentle grip was amazingly tight
I thought you were eventually going to let me go
But I finally realized you were holding on to me for dear life
My gratitude does not out-weigh my guilt
For I don't know what it's like to remain strong
Every time I try and stand up I always need to be held
So I know a person cannot keep that tough-act up for long
I wish the tables can soon be turned / my hidden courage needs to be found
The hope you gave me will be returned / to stop your tears from hitting the ground
I know your smiles are forced sometimes / you always have to watch your words
I can feel the suffering that your hiding / so no one will know that you're badly hurt

I need to, I want to, I have to take on your responsibility for a while, so you can recover
So please lean on me, and put everything on me, I swear I can handle it, you have my shoulder
Now it's your turn to feel a hopeful embrace; let me heal you like you
  A Voice In The Wind
A Voice In The Wind
I can only think of how much I miss you
The pieces of me fall
The time without you stalls
On the inside I know it's wrong
But you're still with me as I carry on
As I try and search for where my heart belongs
I can only remember of how much I loved you
I don't know what I did wrong
I'm so sorry for whatever I've done
Not knowing if I remain unforgiven
I still whisper apologies to try and make a difference
Because I can't take anymore of this lovesick conscience
-
I will always be lost in this storm
As it forever rages on inside of me
Because all I can do now is mourn
While this story becomes a tragedy
Wincing at the random flashes of lightning
As they blind me from the memories
All of my weakness is worth hiding
You don't know what you did to me
The harsh fall of freezing rain
Sends staggering chills all over
I bathe in this nostalgic pain
Because our heart's are no longer together

-
You have no idea how desperately
