Sliding Through Your Fingers Like Liquid Gold – Collaboration with Starr Poetress

I pray timelessly, that I have the strength to tell you how I feel,
Yet I fear at times that I cannot do so
I am almost scared to approach you,
It is not that your person repulses me
I cannot believe, you can truly see “me”

Given all that resides within and then some,
nothing can ever be good enough for you
As I pour out my emotions here – there
Yet, you are nowhere near, to be found
I once thought if I had the perfect piece,
you would look at me differently
Knowing now I was wrong – lost in translation

It was never your words that attracted me,
though they did not hurt, but appease
It was never your body that fascinated me,
though I would love to be pressed up against you
It was your loving eyes, that melted away barriers
How they revealed things, you thought I would never know

Yet, you still cannot see the real me, exposed for all to see
I have been in front of you all this time, calling without end
Yet, I am nonexistent, words be just another set of words
As they bleed, as I continue to press pen unto page,
in every piece writ in blood, I really wonder if you read

Feeling as if my voice slides through your fingers,
like the liquid gold of my heart pouring off of you
Do you see me, can you hear me from afar,
or am I just another fan addicted to you
I really do not know the answers,  but I beg it be different,
at least what I know to be true, is what resides in my heart

His Promise – Collaboration with Starr Poetress

I look to the heavens above in prayer
As I felt in heart, all hope was lost
The sadness that consumed me
Brought me falling to my knees
Pleading for a sign of grace
Searching - listening for a clue
As a voice came to answer

 He said, “Look to your sisters”
They love you unconditionally
When all hope seems gone,
they will give you a hand
Transfer their strength to you,
whether you need it temporary
or need it for eternity

Astonished by the voice
I wonder in if it is a dream
A delusion of the mind
Of an angelic response,
to appease the ache within
Asking in search for answers,
for the reasons to such adversity
In return I hear the voice anew…

I place each one in your life to help you,
in love, loss, happiness, and in strife
So next time you have doubts,
like today, drop to your knees
Giving me a shout up above,
as I know sometimes it seems hopeless
A feeling that should never exist
I have placed each person in your life,
in purpose to teach lessons to guide you happily
Though some may hurt physical or emotionally,
they will make you stronger, wiser to cause
That my daughter, my child I promise thee...

I know now, I am not alone as I take heed
To the knowledge and love bestowed,
within the message to the answer
Knowing that with every tribulation
I grow stronger, more compassionate
To the pleas and cries of another
Gifted by the grace of enlightenment
In a world where madness and mayhem,
rule the days and nights in utter chaos
Only love is the solution to salvation
A most prized treasure to accomplish
As in my essence I emerge into light
