Poem: Forever same

The story was told years ago, but it was never written.

I need to find the answer to being true.

I see the way it looks, but it holds all the shame.

The shame to make it, and the shame to give up.

The last thing I do not need is to be with you.

We have been so far gone that we no longer have a home.

My bones are broken, but I still try to stand.

It hurts my soul that it has no end.

I need to know what is wrong.

Is this the end of you?

Is this the end of me?

The answers are on the wall, but no one can see.

The hurt lives in the veins that cause you to bleed.

The thing of beauty is not being able to see.

We had a time that was sweet.

I wish we had more, but no way for me. Bye for now, or forever it seems.

Poem: Same

Everything is now clear.

The fog that was around my brain is no longer heavy.

The smell of roses lifts the air.

I can see everything that is near me.

The things that made me breathe.

The things that showed me grace.

The heavy hand is no longer on my head.

This is the dream that I dreamed.

This is the new life that makes me.

Then why am I still empty?

The one that once held me is the still making the tears in my eyes.

Though they are gone I smell of them lingers on my pillow, and under my eyes.

The fog has left my brain, but it still holds my heart.

It is deeper the oceans that can never me reach.

This is what I wanted, but it looks like something that I do not need.

This is just me.

Poem: The Same

Today everything was the same

I was brave

I fought the less fortunate

I was kind

Most importantly I was there

Today everything was the same

I was tough

I walked without a care

I was at ease

Most importantly I was there

Today everything was the same

I was flying high

I did my part to make everything right

I was here

Most importantly I was here

As always today was the same

I cried

At night nobody came to see why

Nobody called to check on me

Until it was time for me to fight

I was not brave, kind, tough at ease, flying high and I was no longer here

For the last time and the most important I was not there

Nothing was the same
