Broken promises, tolerance,
Mixed emotions, stirring anger,
Passionate love driven by force...
Love- taken by force!

Empty arms, cold bodies sit in silence,
Lay in passion-
naked truth revealed its secret...

Dancing emotions rejoicing in silence
Thirsty arms longing...
A glimpse into the future through God's eyes.
Looking stunningly amazing but reality kicks in
To say hello and give a pat on the shoulder!

Smiling faces; masked in fear.
Fear of loosing something was never lost...
Spitting words of fire the burn deep-
Like sand in and open wound...
The agony intensifies!

Taking the bull by the horn..
What would you do?
Twisted emotions; a furious flame it ignites
Disaster strikes and I'm left dead
Dead in my bitterness, dead in the solitude of my thoughts

Now in the stillness I can hear my thoughts speak.
Run! Walk away!
But yet I stay; stay to make it through.
Make it through the storm
Tested tried and true

With bittersweet emotions my heart runs cold my body grow weary my mind is blown.
Blown away by these thoughts of letting go!
