#31daypoem Day 28 and 29

Introduction into the business of intensity
we could possibly be that flame too hot to touch

First impressions of passion and desire for change
the wild beast that forsakes the thought of being caged

While we take addictions and past fears and doubts hand in hand
we struggle with moving forward through all sinking sand

Intimately we dive into each other’s subconscious
forcing one another to see the world just as vicious

Take the time to listen more, eyes open, ears and heart clear
lending more than just a simple ear

In those moments of full vulnerability, walls all the way down
it is important that we make that moment feel like home.

The goal should be to separate from the rest of the world
when stress and pressures affect our words

That is when we allow more grief to reside than need be
getting into pointless arguments that are hard to cease

The lack of recognition of self just to get off a quick jab or poke
yet what does this help us being together, turns joy into smoke

Floating away in the air, a mist, prior happiness now a fog
mind clouded by anger and aggression, getting plump as a hog

Except we are on the chopping block, ready for the slaughterhouse
our once peaceful moment marred and we are paying the cost

This is tiresome, draining, we should be the remedy for one another
not the reason there is more of a problem, and becoming the bother

Let us wake up from the pain, the stress, the agony of thought
let us hold each other with unclouded minds and talk

Before we speak through the madness of the world, retreat
retreat into our minds, does this come from love, pain, or defeat

Are these words meant to make us feel like we win
Are these words meant to continue the relationship in a downward spin

Out of control, a tornado loop of aggression against action that is continued
shown to be happening from the accuser yet those are not reviewed

Conversation about issues should not be an accosting
should be about listening, learning, understanding, then forgiving

If issues are to be resolved, hypocrisy should not lead out front
speaking about dual included matters, and removing your own participation

My day is filled with thoughts of intimacy, affection, and passion
I rather spend my time diving into you more and more than my occupation

Timelines set, deadlines set, I rather focus on making the present the best
no need to worry about reaching a date when we are already taking care of the rest

Focusing on enjoying and building the best bond between us right here and now
no worries about if a future is to come, or issue after issue, live in love as we know how

Fate suggests that stars too bright burn themselves out
that the one with wings who wants to soar, falls before the sun with doubts 

seldom is it seen as a blessing for powerful people to bond
for fear of their union, hate and anger is how the world responds

conspired against by the earth, this plane of human jealousy
the devil in each individual with bias consumed to stop destiny

for it is and always will be fear that is our greatest weakness
to take what is great for you and run from it, because of this

lives have been shaped by the hand of free will versus intervention
we scatter away from unknown blessings with strong apprehension

yet with courage and fortitude comes great rewards to a few
those willing to fight themselves and all doubts and fears to say “I do”

Internal battles are often unseen, nobodies trouble
until you bring the war to others

We all have struggles and burdens to bear all the time
it becomes a different situation when it becomes a landmine

Awaiting someone to step on them, feel your wrath
all we want is someone to care, yet they cannot move that fast

We develop impatience when it comes to internal grief
we wish for it to pass quickly, yet we drag our own feet

holding on to pain much longer than need be
grasping regret proudly when it should be free

beginning growth or staying short is a choice
when the tide comes in, the water should only touch your toes

While we have these struggles we never look in the mirror while it happens
we wait until we have done our damage, and we create the largest chasm

between us and those we care for, we push them away than enjoy their company
for worrying about our own life is the only priority

yet in a union of two, grief and pain should be shared
however, it has to be accepted, believed, and understood while being aware

That this person beside me feels the same pain as I do
that the person I love feels pain because I do

too often we take for granted that communication is truly key
we jump to conclusions on what was not said, ignoring the cost and fee

for holding back or even the words that come out for confrontation
all it does is create problems, potholes, damage, and distractions

Wish it was easier to break down the walls of the past
I wish I could be strong enough to last

I wish that at times, my influence was truly seen
dreaming all the time, I might know what I mean

Consistently able to feel the result of the question
knowing without a doubt, I am the exception

Instead of being lumped in with the rest of the world
I wish to be separated, do not wish to feel shared

Doing my best to stand out among the crowd
feel as if I am overlooked because I am not as loud

Never the one to brag or boast, be loud and boisterous
rather stay humble, calm, collected, enjoy the simpleness

Possible I am always in the backseat because I step aside
rather not create pointless fights, rather dip, duck, and dive

myself out of the way of problems that have no resolution
going around in circles pointing the finger is never a solution

when one issue always turns into many more from the past
potholes turn into much larger sinkholes really fast

 Yet with tireless effort
and backs made of steel

Together we can put away any and all danger
to the future we wish to build

It is a simple matter of determination
the fight to make sure we reach our destination

I like to think about moments alone
hours gone by wondering why the time has gone

or those brief moments we get to steal away
frozen in the moment, time no longer in our way

the ambition to live proudly in the right now
the courage to not worry about the maybe, why or how

Too often we all worry about what may become of life
we create more fear, we become the reason of our own strife

It is easy to become absorbed in the thought of what if
and for all that is right in front of us, we tend to forget

to appreciate it and love the life we are currently living
a bright light we bask within, the beauty of us no longer just existing.

 to live a life where dreams become reality in a snap
to remember those loved ones happily, seeing them takes no lapse

time is irrelevant in these moments as they feel like forever
eternity just a matter of speech, time is happiness with your lover

all too often we forget to embrace the seconds as if they are minutes
embrace minutes as if hours, embrace hours as if continuous

when living in joy and peace, embrace all of it as one whole moment
never separating the time between sleep, awake, taking nothing for granted

when those moments of exuberance come into the picture
there is nothing around that should be an issue

even those times where sadness feels like it should live
you are able to move forward because of understanding, the ability to forgive

This is the story of beginning the rest of your life
That tells you sometimes you just have to push through strife

Quit revisiting issues and problems that you cannot change
It takes more courage and strength to walk away

That situation that will not get better, that drug of confrontation
Keeps you locked in your past, takes you away from progression

Who are you fighting for?
What are you striving for?

Change comes from within
Your chance to win

Fill life with only the energy you desire
let love be the only fuel for your fire

It is the positive energy we seek to invest within
we need to feel like we lack the need to depend

but rather by choice and trust do we dive in the deep end
forcing ourselves to breathe water, live, and swim

off the cliff of life we jump, free as a bird
we no longer worry about depending on someone else’s words

for time and time again we give up our power
we lower our guard, give up control for hours

so today we stand ready to take control of what we desire
today we start putting our own hands in the fire

not too hot, not too cold, more than just right
we bring out our hands and hold it to the air, this is our light.

Sometimes it takes going through the most fierce of flames
to come out with the strength to tame

tame whatever beast or situation that might cross your path
you went in the fire a follower and a victim of your past

Yet you come out of the fire, strong, powerful, and determine
no longer will you allow past pain turn you against

those that stand by your side through night and day
those that came to your side, never left and stayed

These individuals who put themselves to the side to stand by yours
those individual who will fight for you with extreme force

It is an amazing privilege and blessing in their eyes to be graced by you
fighting to remain by your side, fighting to remain true.

Here is a bit of irony for you to ponder on
something that I wanted to create thoughts on

we talk about family so much and how they should be there for you
those are the ones you should depend on, the same blood flows through

yet when love begins and this is the new individual you trust and confide in
we always tend to forget that there is no blood relation, there is no blood tie in

the addition of true ties only begins when there are children introduced
before they are create, it is only the one you love and then you

so then this person whom you love, no relation, no blood, what is it between you two?
it the bond of passion, affection, love, trust, and adoration that makes it feel true

the energy and spirit we share with individuals is more powerful than any blood in our veins
it is these ties to another’s presence that can make our life change.

Poetry

This Word: Love

Heart on my sleeve: check

Wear my emotions on my face: check

Deep sense of loyalty: check

Understanding of how to stay in one place: double check

Whether it is by fate or divine intervention, there is a reason you exist in my life

You have been through enough, take a break, get some rest, I’ll show you what is right

right way to be loved

right way to love

instructor at your service on the subject of being reserved

you want to know what it means

this is the meaning of being loved by me.

Never alone in a conflict whether internal or external

I will do my best to always be there whether in spirit or in flesh, daytime or nocturnal

I can become your creature of the night if I need to be

struggling to stay awake just so that I am there when you lay down to sleep

making sure you and your little man understand what it means to see and breathe a man

different scenario than you were used to but I do understand

not all people appreciate the beauty within the pain

not all people will be able to comprehend that there is sunshine always in the rain

whether it hides behind the clouds or if it forces the light through

the sun is shining behind the darkness, so you should do the same too

I once embraced the darkness and lo and behold, survival I have attained

then I decided to embrace the light, the pain of living life is now where I remain

Yet back to the two subjects at hand, blessed to have them in my land

I greatly enjoy holding your hand in mine, love can feel so grand

This is just a short and well simple aside to tell you how much you mean to me

grateful for you both being in my life, hoping it can be for an eternity.

Instead of being lumped in with the rest of the world
I wish to be separated, do not wish to feel shared

Doing my best to stand out among the crowd
feel as if I am overlooked because I am not as loud

Never the one to brag or boast, be loud and boisterous
rather stay humble, calm, collected, enjoy the simpleness

Possible I am always in the backseat because I step aside
rather not create pointless fights, rather dip, duck, and dive

myself out of the way of problems that have no resolution
going around in circles pointing the finger is never a solution

when one issue always turns into many more from the past
potholes turn into much larger sinkholes really fast

 Yet with tireless effort
and backs made of steel

Together we can put away any and all danger
to the future we wish to build

It is a simple matter of determination
the fight to make sure we reach our destination

I like to think about moments alone
hours gone by wondering why the time has gone

or those brief moments we get to steal away
frozen in the moment, time no longer in our way

the ambition to live proudly in the right now
the courage to not worry about the maybe, why or how

Too often we all worry about what may become of life
we create more fear, we become the reason of our own strife

It is easy to become absorbed in the thought of what if
and for all that is right in front of us, we tend to forget

to appreciate it and love the life we are currently living
a bright light we bask within, the beauty of us no longer just existing.

 to live a life where dreams become reality in a snap
to remember those loved ones happily, seeing them takes no lapse

time is irrelevant in these moments as they feel like forever
eternity just a matter of speech, time is happiness with your lover

all too often we forget to embrace the seconds as if they are minutes
embrace minutes as if hours, embrace hours as if continuous

when living in joy and peace, embrace all of it as one whole moment
never separating the time between sleep, awake, taking nothing for granted

when those moments of exuberance come into the picture
there is nothing around that should be an issue

even those times where sadness feels like it should live
you are able to move forward because of understanding, the ability to forgive

This is the story of beginning the rest of your life
That tells you sometimes you just have to push through strife

Quit revisiting issues and problems that you cannot change
It takes more courage and strength to walk away

That situation that will not get better, that drug of confrontation
Keeps you locked in your past, takes you away from progression

Who are you fighting for?
What are you striving for?

Change comes from within
Your chance to win

Fill life with only the energy you desire
let love be the only fuel for your fire
