Lingering, On the Edge of Forever

Haunting
Emerald eyes
Seductive
Ruby lips
A look, A smile
A moment
We were left
Lingering,
On the edge of forever

Holding on
Heartbeats
Holding in
Breathless
A glance, A chance
A moment
We lived there
Lingering,
On the edge of forever

Blank
Lifeless eyes
Cold
Blue lips
A stare, A vacancy
A moment
That captured life
Lingering,
On the edge of forever

For Love
Gratitude
From Grace
Blessed
A hope, A mercy
A light
Shines on us
Lingering,
On the edge of forever

Battered Heart

image

Bathed in bright sunlight
I’m standing silent
Surrounded by the darkness
Of my every thought
That erupts from my dry
Battered heart   
   
Looking for a light
That forever shines   
Through the many cracks
Of my uncertain life
Through the scars of my                      
Battered heart

Holding onto a belief  
Lingering in corners
Behind boxes of doubt   
Light storms the dark
Shining so bright into my 
Battered heart
