Loving

 

And I don’t like the

world around you,

Nor the way it is with

you.

And I can’t pretend to 

shield you

Through all the days 

upon you.

 

But I know what this is.

Love

without abandon.

That I could live through

you.

Your pain as mine

Your joy to share.

 

Yet,

I question what for

I still don’t understand

why.

 

@poetryandsitawa 

Your pain is mine
Your joy I share
I love you

 

There’s no life we make

Only bring

No life we take

Only lose

 

For we create no life

We’re merely conduits

 

This life isn’t ours

We didn’t ask for it

Can’t give it back

 

It just is

 

@poetryandsitawa 

 

Would you say your

vision’s blurred

Your view of the world

distorted?

Would you agree you’re

prejudiced

Your outlook on life

contorted?

 

If you knew that every 

soul is crying

That each person is

overwhelmed.

If you learnt that we’re 

all struggling

That everyone you see

is strained.

 

Would you live a

different way

Is there any thing in you

that would change?

May my sight excite your

eyes

And my words calm your

ears.

May my touch heal your

skin

And my scent soothe 

your nose.

 

May I be pleasing to 

You.

 

@poetryandsitawa 

 

I look at the world.

In that lovely flower, that

scorching sun and

Those wonderful things

we lust for.

I look at my life

My grave mistakes, my

fulfilled dreams and

The many places I want

to go.

I look at you

Your open mind, your

unnerving beauty and

Those amazing stuff you 

do.

 

And in that chaos, all 

that movement

Underneath the

experiences

I see 

Love.

 

@poetryandsitawa 

I choose love, I choose You

 

I closed my eyes and 

covered my ears.

I choose faith.

 

To stand on, walk with

And Live by.

 

I opened my mind and 

exposed my heart

I still believe.

Certain on things I’m 

yet to see.

 

@poetryandsitawa 

 

You’ve shown me

 

An new brand of 

happiness

 

@poetryandsitawa 

 

I trace your signature

on my soul

 

the writings of your

heart.

the drawings of your

soul

and markings of your art.

 

@poetryandsitawa

 

And I was pulled into 

the great unknown

where my mind agreed

with my spirit

And my soul became

one with my heart

And I vibrated in the

frequency

meant for me

 

@poetryandsitawa 

#signature

 

I brushed paths

With souls like mine, 

 

And my!!!!

Was I blown

Away.

 

@poetryandsitawa 

 

That’s all

That’s it.

 

I just miss you too much 

today

Need you somehow.

Just want you that very

way

But it can’t happen now.

 

@poetryandsitawa 

 

I have fallen short in

every way. Took wrong

turns while ripping some 

mends.

I caged myself some 

other days. Buried my 

soul, while hiding behind

a wall.

 

But love pulled me out

every time. Dried my 

eyes and healed my

heart.

Love

Brought me out into the

light

And I hope when I’m

down

I  remember that it was 

You.
