Untarnished Love 

The purest of loves

Is untarnished by people
Been holding me close

For years it has grown
So deep within it branches
Indestructible

A softness, a peace
Its safety has provided
Unconditional

It is mine alone
Impossible to deny
Cannot replicate

Falling back on it
This love shall always protect
Inexplicable

To The…

To the past, may it forever rest

To the future, may we hope for the best

To the love, may it fill our hearts

To the envy, may it not tear us apart

To the passions, may they intensely live

To the pains, may we learn to forgive

To the courage, may it drive us forward

To the fear, may it remain just a word

To the trust, may it never fault us

To the regret, may it leave us thus

To the friends, may they always stay near

To the prospects, may they improve each year

I Wish

I wish to turn back the clock and make everything right

I wish I could return to that point and fight not flight
I wish for the chance at the happiness that I had always longed for
I wish for a lighter baggage to fit through the proverbial door

I wish for the fear to vacate my soul
I wish for the ghosts to haunt me no more
I wish for the normalcy that others possess
I wish for the passion that would cause me to digress

I wish for a second try devoid of doubt
I wish for the opportunity to stand out
I wish to let the past rest in its grave
Or else my poor future I cannot save

Aching Heart

Unexpected blow
Heart aches deep within the chest
Sudden pain seeps through

From a past mistake 
An injury bleeds and bleeds
The chocking pain lives

A crippling fear
Causes error in judgement
Thus the heart suffers

A stabbing regret 
Inflicting such misery
Hurting all alone

A faltering trust 
In such a weakening self
This horror unleashed
