Call it blasphemy and turn me to a pillar of salt. Drown me in sorrow, flood my heart, after all I have no one to board the arc with. Keep your riddled prophesies that speak of promised lands for chosen ones cause the one I chose no longer chooses me.

Give Cupid a sling shot because his arrows never hit the right targets, even when aiming for giants, he comes short and leads broken hearts to grinders and rushes to blow away what remains, so there can be no Lazarus resurrection of any feelings.

Save on inks reserved for scribes to record revelations of gloomy dooms awaiting my love story. Let not my ears hear promises of it’s okay and it works out in the end. Let not my heart listen to other souls lost in religion.

I’m done with all this. Just do away with it.

You know what

Keep Your Faith.

In life there are lessons

In tragedy there are blessings

In his leaving, gave room for my arrival

We struggle through the questions

How much of the truth do you deserve?

How much from me should you learn

And with you being so young could you ever understand

that even though I missed out on your birth

and wasn’t part of your conception

I love you as if I was always there

We started off on a rough note,

Home full of love and pockets filled with dreams

Empty wallets and financial difficulties were our first contributions

Continuous mood swings, you know couple things,

mom and dad could not agree on how to do things,

all we knew was you came first

So we made sacrifices,

She gave up her attitude and I learnt to ask for help

We learnt to communicate

So please believe me when I say I’m not here because of her

All we really are is common math,

no matter who she decides to love, you’ll always be my one

Too much too soon

Too much love before any of it was needed

Why bring her presence to my attention if you had no intention of letting her feel my embrace

Just toy with my bare brokenness

Without an explanation of why you took Angel away

Awaiting her first kick has me in shreds

Wishful thinking won’t appease my pain

It would have been a blessing to hold her

Could I beg you to let her stay?

She is away from me physically but could I still own her memory

I feel her fading and slipping from inside me again

With less blood clots but more soul loss

Please stay

Stay with me in someway

Hide in my heart

Please don’t go away
