    I haven't posted in a while...Life took over...Just something on my mind today..

    I thought my life was beginning
    Living for the extreme and care-less
    Until the day she entered my world
    Crippling me with extreme care.

    Her heart was open and true
    And I feared that the beat was real
    For I’ve never met a heart so true
    To reveal the innermost me

    She saw me for who I truly was
    Not the image created by life and love
    And she embraced me through the veil
    Of images created over time

    And now I think my life is new
    For what I chose to live no longer enticed
    And the things I enjoyed now change
    For I enjoy the time in her embrace

    She loved me through her own pain
    Her fears coursing through my veins
    So that I can no longer run from joy
    When pain has given up its place

    I loved her to life as so many prescribed
    But my life-love could not overcome her past
    When the present produced such a clear
    Reproduction of a broken heart experience

    I never knew I was repetition
    Walking steps that caused so much pain
    Until the moment arrived where I freed
    The one thing hindering our progression

    I shared my heart beyond the last
    No longer thinking of things long ago
    No longer seeing reflections of distrust
    But accepting open doors of forgiveness

    I…see my life is better now
    Simply because she is in between the lines
    Holding together the delicate threads
    Weaving a place suitable for her

    She has taken over my thoughts…
    I can see without her in my vision
    Everything I do becomes a reflection
    Of the one who has repossessed my heart

    But when I let her in…she changed
    Taking my heart and adjusting its flow
    So that whenever it skipped a beat
    Its because she no longer held on

    Her past fears have met her present
    And now they battle with my future
    Which affects my hopes of a life
    That I thought existed within us

    I decided to surrender my destiny for her
    Giving up on my future hopes and dreams
    Only to discover that when I asked God to take my life
    He…took…hers…

    And here i sit
    Looking at what I wanted life to be
    No longer living
    Freeing me into a place unknown

    How can I move beyond this moment
    When all I knew was her pulse in mine
    When our two hearts beat as one
    And mine now missing a pulse

    Time to live again
    Mend the places where she existed
    Look to find love again
    In places I’ve never traversed before

    Living a new life...

    Love,
    both as a placebo
    and a world of pain...
    is just what the doctor ordered.

    A cure all from the Creator
