Goodbye to Seventh Heaven

Vanquishing all hopes and dreams
A future in silent screams
Never to have the pleasure
Of surmounting the treasure
Of the beauty of your life
Dreaming of being your wife
The light of your dimpled grin
It quenched my thirst from within
And I would become brand new
With beauty to me from you
Your gift in making me tall
For the heavens cannot fall
Yet I felt like a young star
Wondrous but naive by far
As the soft rays of my light
Humbly reflected the blight
Of a love that was quite vast
Blemished from a painful past
This ache in my soul is deep
My fall from your heaven – steep

Act of Contrition

Please write me a life in your heart
With words that run off the page
Like my blood as my veins tore apart
After you left in anger and rage
Please find me a nook in your dreams
Where you dance naked exposing your soul
Your sleep is where my spirit beams
You can make my brokenness whole
Please don’t change the script of fate
I’m the story arc of your blood
Forever is such a long wait
For your heart and dreams to flood
I’m in silence wishing for your return
A poem not fully expressed
When my ashes spilled into the urn
Truths ceased to be confessed
Pieces of me are in the air you breathe
Denying love is a fallow path
Oh how it makes all creation seethe
And builds the gods’ mighty wrath
Please find my soul in the sky
Beautifully written beyond the Kuiper Belt
In frozen darkness, alone I cry
Your radiance here can’t be felt
Wherever you find me now
Please keep me infused in your core
For as long as time will allow
Reconciling the veins that I tore
