Overpowering Voice, Love

The words:


Small poem I just wrote with the UPPERCASE words:

Here’s to your voice, love

Overpowering my every sense
Making me blind
To all that lies ahead

Missing that voice, love

A voice so gentle,
A voice too calm
A voice to keep me
Forever in your arms

Let me hear thy voice, love
Let me feel it overcome
Every feeling I despise
Every worry I harbour
Every thought in my head
Every word on my lips

Keep me not from your voice, love
For never do I know
When I might stray
To paths I might regret

Stop me with your voice then, love
When you know it’s right
Like you always do

Right for me
& Right for you

The One

There’s a voice inside my head
Come to me is what it says
A voice too strong
A voice never ceasing

Slowly but surely keeps clawing away
At my resolve which weakens by the day

Calls me to a place
Darker than darkness itself
Tempts me to give in
And to give it up
The rat and mouse games
That we play

A trap it has set
Like a spider’s web
I run
I stop I succumb

Mired in the web i think
What can get me out of this sink
I hope it will be someone
But find that the answer 

is just THE one…

The key I realize
Is That freedom is what i truly want
To run away from this shadow
To a place where i am free
And To a place where I can be

I pull myself out
Dust myself off
Stand up proud
And Strut off

Knowing that the shadow lurks
Always will

But at least now
I know what’s to be done
‘Cos now I know
I AM the only one…

It’s one o’ those days
When austerity rules
When lethargy’s your coffee
And sleep your compadre

Enthusiasm runs low
Introspection’s what you do
life seems vaguely aimless
Yet you stagger on
As you’re not sure

“Wait, this isn’t the last option”
I wish we had none
Life would be linear
Not the maze that surrounds you

Doing what’s ideal And safe
You wouldn’t worry
“Is this the right path?”
“Am I going too slow?”
“Should I do something else?”
“Do I even like this?”

You would walk on
Fear, your fuel
For You’d know when you’d stop
you’d be through

& There’d be no solitude
You’ll have fools to your left
And fools to your right
With you in this dreaded monotony

Your mind with ease would lie
Yet fulfilled
“I am DOING nothing wrong now
Just what they are doing!
There IS no need for me
To harbor any more greed”

“After all, happiness is overrated
Isn’t it?
It’s pursuit has pulled
Many a good men down”

“It’s nothing but a fickle object
The love of whom
Has made our heart, beat”

“Its pursuit is what
Has kept it alive
Through times of turbulence
And through bouts of solitude”

“But the heart is foolish
It Can’t clearly see
Through the fog that surrounds it
Awaiting a ray of sunshine to break”

“Solidarity is what I feel for it
Yet not much there is, I can do
Sitting up here thinking away
All I can, is deceive and fool”

It might be what the heart wants
But ne’er the heart knows
truly what it needs”
