Image for the poem bleed


delicate in my need
I come before you with my heart in my hands
and request you take it
I'm bruising it and I fear crushing it
my mind says I no longer desire you
but I do deep within me

I ache with the understanding your are the soul of me
the breath that keeps me going
I shelter in the dark
you bring the sunlight
I bask in sullen thoughts
you bring me back from the brink

I want to give up

my anger asks why don't you let me?

I seek honesty within my imaginations
I think she is being held hostage to delusions
sanctity in the limits, there is none
the skies open up and I rise into the infinite
where I am met with candor

I take the love given me and shake my head clear of the visions
and shelter in the heaven of my innocence
where God doesn't have to war to maintain the perimeter
because I stay safely ensconced in his tomes of victory
