A Poem

Spare me the pain,
That no other than me can curtail.
The one of facing my failures, my darkness,
My inability to climb, and soar, and fly,
Feeling confident in myself
(like everybody else).

I know.
Most don’t feel confident.
Most are faking it until they make it.
But they look so real.
And me,
I cannot even fake it.

The only avoidance is avoidance.
I can’t even see in a mirror my reflection.
And here I am,
Asking for sympathy,
When I don’t have any;
For myself.

Would you bring your witchcraft and entice me?
Your words and your charm, entrancing me,
The scent emanating from your soul,
As I chase and chase, and chase,
Following your essence,
Since it emanates,
from the soil.

Thank you Lucy (the eggcademic) for the challenge. I hope my verses are appropriate and honor Witches seen and unseen.

A Poem

I go searching for your smile,
Hoping to find in yours, then mine,
Because round and round we go,
Searching for the one we lost.

I’ve been looking for a heart,
Hoping to find the one I had,
Whose living rhythm I forgot,
Much noise its beat now blocks.

I cannot smile unless you smile,
But don’t you worry, oh my lass,
The moon smiles at me tonight,
Morning comes, flowers now shine.

To the summer spring, we’ll go,
To drink sweet water for the soul,
And when I look into your eyes,
I will then know that you are I.

We both delight in ourselves,
Intermingled as we dance,
And love is flowing freely now,
As we laugh among the stars.
