Find your way back

Without you I feel empty
I walk around with a facade like everything is OK
But there’s only part of me here
I gave you my heart
And never got it back
A love lost
Waiting for the return
How can you love someone
That you have not spent time with?
Never laughed with
Joked with
Not even made love to
I kissed you one time
And that’s all I needed
You stole my heart
With the key intact
I spent nights wondering when you would return
To come back and love me
To just come back to me
My heart aches when you’re not around
My beds empty
I want to lay with you
My arms are empty
I wanna hold you
My hands are empty
I wanna stroke you
My love is waiting
It wants to cherish you
It doesn’t care what you did
Love doesn’t care what you do
Just, as long, as you come back
The pieces will align back together
My love doesn’t hold grudges
My love is yours for the taking
It’s waiting for you
Come back to it
Come back to us
I love you we need you
This pain seems unbearable
And the tears roll like thunder
Why do I feel this way?
Why does it hurt so bad?
I try not to think about it
I try to shut it in
But when I see everyone’s love
Explode for each other
It reminds me that you’re not here
It reminds me that there is a missing link
I want so bad for you to come and find me
To fix me
To heal me
You’re the only one that can make it better
Can’t you see
I’m in love with you
My love loves you
My soul loves you
And if you’re not with me
I’ll never be whole
I want to be whole
Come back to me
Please come back to us

After the Storm

Unrecognizable structure
Beams lost
Nails bent
Everything ruined
Like Pooh Bear looking for honey
Pipes bent
Everything way beyond repair
Everything in despair
Toys ripped to shreds
Pictures unrecognizable
Valuables non-replaceable
Hearts broken
Words unspoken
The look of hopelessness
Runs across my face
A ruined life
Ruined dreams
Everything lost or so it seems
Weakness without strength
Is lost in sadness
But Faith in Him
Will not bring weakness
A beautiful pile
Of the ultimate junk
The air we breathe is full of
Dirt, ashes, and wood
And no lives took
You can rebuild
And buy more things
The lives that weren’t taken
Don’t need to be replaced
They couldn’t if they were
Smiles creep across a brand-new day
And hope rears its head
To say everything is ok
Laughter fills the broken structure
It takes months to replace
All that is broken
But Faith holds tight
Of a life that was transformed
We can see clearly now
After the storm

A love from the past

A Love from the Past

I cried those last tears
Worry and doubt left with the fears
No love lost
No love gained
My heart is not full of pain
He laughs when I see him
He still looks good
Did he miss me?
I missed him
I let go because I held on to tight
High standards I have
And I won’t make them light
I got played
More than a year of waiting
But all you were doing was procrastinating
Forever was never an option
You played with me like a rag doll
And just threw me back in the toy box
I was looking for a strong hold
But all I found was a fox
It’s been months since we talked
But I saw you ever week
The love I have for you
Is a love that I cannot speak
Deleted and blocked
I checked ever, so often
When Our eyes would meet
Then the love would creep
Never over
Just in a bad place
I could always go back
And see what I missed
And I responded with love
And our love did last
Oh, how I love
My love
A love from the past

A glowing heart’s faith

Rigged places
Strange faces
Different avenues
No real venues
The sky stays blue
I wish it would rain
The dark clouds will bring out my pain
Never warm
Always cold
Sitting and waiting
For life to unfold
At a standstill
Everything seems broken
Every time I speak
My words are not spoken
Vanished like the air in the nights’ warm sky
Unlike birds who sing when they cry
Life’s a make of emptiness and sadness
Hurt and pity mixed with turmoil and hope
I can’t sing praises
If I can’t see it
I can’t be grateful
If I don’t feel it
I can’t feel hopeful
If I have no hope
I can’t feel faithful
If I have no faith
An unknowing belief
And trust is… faith
My world can be ripped to shreds
Crashing down like lightening to a tree
But I will not falter
I will not wither
There are things I don’t understand
And things that I question
But faith keeps me locked in
Strapped in for the ride
I won’t subside
I won’t give in
Life’s not a picnic
But with faith I win
I love this world and it can tear you apart
But faith is my strength
And is stays glowing in my heart

Well Deserving

54887-Lonely-Girl

I deserve better
I deserve it all
Flowers for no reason
Just because they are my favorite
Spur of the moment texts
Because you can’t stop thinking about me
Thoughtful gifts
Just because they make me smile
My smile is important
I am important
My love is important
Dates that make my heart skip beats
And jealously from my friends
That will tell me “Have several seats”
I want a love that overflows like a waterfall
A love that I can tell to my daughter
When she asks me “What is love?”
I deserve better
I deserve it all
Picnics and park walks
Massages and small talks
Sporting events with the kids in tow
My favorite scents and lingerie you should already know
Just because love
That real love
Call it impossible
But I strive for the best
And if you are not willing, go join the rest
My love over flows like milk and honey
God’s image of love is wrapped up in me
When your clothes get ironed
Or when I call and ask you
“What do you want for dinner tonight?”
When I ask about your day
And make sure you have everything you need and want
When we don’t go to sleep mad
Or when I let you know what’s going on
Love is good
It carries the same weight as God does with the world on his shoulders
I deserve better
I deserve it all
And I will graciously wait
For that right man to call

The Patient Table

The table is set
I’m all in
The aroma is inviting
It smells delicious
Glass set by the hour with love
Skillet sizzling and the heat above
Waiting for your call
As I sit at the table and wait
Did I do something wrong?
As I go back in my mind and contemplate
Your invited as a guest
You made your own plans
But forget me nots
These plans you sand
Was it really true
Are you really, real?
I can’t really let you know how I feel
You’re the guy with no plan
And I’m a woman with a future
How does this work?
Am I wasting my time?
Wasting energy?
Hoping for the best?
A dashing face
Worth a million kisses
A loveable heart
Full of hopes and wishes
A sexy body
That I’ll nurture for all our days
And in many different ways
I don’t pay to play
I’ll let you have it for free
What’s in me
Don’t leave me
Don’t walk away
Don’t be scared I don’t bite
I’ll love you in every way passible
10,000 ways to love you
And make love to you
A lifetime to summit and worship you
I’m her, are you him?
Can you give me what I deserve?
Above my wildest dreams?
What do you dream?
I can be all that and more
Give you rainbows, after the storm
Life will be spectacular
But with only me in it
If only me and you could get through it together
The table has been set
And I’m all in
116% I’ll put on it
For us to win
Let go of the past
And embrace your future
For all to see
The table is set
And I’ll patiently wait
For you to join me
-Kyi
