Guilty Chromosomes

Guilty Chromosomes

Deoxyribonucleic acid is the culprit.
Therefore I plead the fifth.
The blood that pulses through my veins
I can’t do a thing with.

I love with the heart of a lion
Until you lead me into a snare.
I trust you with my all
Unless you show me you do not care.

Through your actions and your deeds
The double-stranded helix will then take the lead
Warding off all hurt and sorrow
Strangling your chances of crushing me tomorrow

Or any other time for that matter…

Never again will you access my cardiac rhythm
Surrendering it to you causes me to tremble
The chromosomes that resides in my cells
Will no longer allow you to put me through hell.

Therefore I plead the fifth when asked to testify
Because I cannot speak honestly without implicating myself
My chromosomes are guilty but my heart is safe.
Back in my possession a guarded place.

Trail Mix of Life

Trail Mix of Life

The trail is mixed with the sweetness of success and the saltiness of failure.
Each of these tiny morsels we must savour no matter the flavor.

Reaping the benefits of each of its pieces. Experience is the fiber of life. Whether salty or sweet, there is a purpose for each.

The trail of life is mixed with disappointments and triumphs. Digest each morsel...
Allow it to nourish your destiny.
No matter how bitter or sweetie this trail mix of life makes me who I am meant to be.

Bewildered by these incessant emotions Disillusioned by this misplaced devotion
To circumstances beyond my understanding
A truce between my heart and mind is what my life is demanding.
Living a lie and longing for truth
Bewildered by how this type of bond developed between us two
Against all odds through storm and rain
The love I feel remains the same.
Wrapped in uncertainty surrounded by doubt
No matter the reason I want to see what the confusion is all about

Composition to a Confidant, Lover, and Friend

I guess I am going to have to give you up
One of my greatest loves
The thing that has soothed my soul and calmed my fears
For so many years and in so many situations
The melodies that have rocked me to sleep on the worst of days
Made me dance on the greatest of occasions

When nothing else could soothe my spirit you’ve always been there
Not judging the situation but providing peace of mind in the midst of turmoil

It’s crazy how you use to clear my head of the things I could not control
Now every word I hear within your lines reminds me
Of a situation that has me totally perplexed.
Even the tunes without words make drift in mind to …

Music, my first lover, have you forsaken me?
Why do your compositions reminding  me
Of a time when I felt free, confident and loved
Only to be jolted back to the reality that this was not mine to keep?

Music, my muse, your inspiration keeps taking back to that which I should forget.
Shouldn’t I?
What are you trying to tell me my lifelong friend?
Am I not getting the message?

 I will continue to listen because you have not failed me yet.
I just have one request
Please speak to our mutual friend as well
Encourage them to share themselves.
Whether it is through you or directly
Answers and clarification is the path to a clear mind.

Music, my friend I need you today!

Agony of indecision
Shadows of despair
longing for our conversation
Realizing you're no longer there
Memories of the feelings
elicited by our connection
Concern about your wellbeing
Longing for your presence
Fear of failure has triumphed
In a war against my past distress
The barrier meant for protection
Has caused cardiac unrest.
The heart that is so fragile
Now aches behind these walls
The mind that's usually agile
Has now choked and stalled
Stuck on a freeway of loneliness
Toward a deserted dead end street
Sacrificing my happiness
As a result of past deceit
Should I chalk this up to a lesson learned?
Or push for another chance?
The right direction can not be discerned.
Until I dig my heart from the sands
You gave me glimpse of what I once was
The hope of what I'll again be
Our meeting was orchestrated from above
Love in my heart for you is for eternity.

A Journey of Hope

Each time the screen illuminates
I smile in hopes that it's your face I see
It's reading your kind words that brighten my days
Giving life to the hope inside of me.

The desire I feel inside is one I thought had expired.
To lay in your arms and experience your presence
Longing to be soothed by your effervescence.

Of All the anguish I have allowed to take over my heart
The pain I've internalized...Can it now depart?
To a place of darkness where I will no longer reside
Filling me with light rather than being empty inside

The presence of your name in my inbox
Or your picture across my screen.
Chips away at the concrete encasing of my emotions
And the fear suppressing my dreams

Illusions of a place and time were happiness was sublime
No longer a distant image of days and times gone by.
Dreaming of a journey with destination yet unknown
From cyber space to face to face; possibilities untold.

Destiny's Journey

The sweet sound of victory
The essence of success
The sensation of feeling
Your heartbeat in your chest

The knowledge that this battle is just the beginning of a struggle
An ongoing journey to destiny made for no other
The obstacles and roadblocks would make most turn away
But where destiny is concerned it always gets it`s way

As life's rains fall and penetrate the ground
The intentions of destiny's presence often seems to drown
In the quicksand,dreams are swallowed here and there
However, destiny's relentless ambition is beyond compare

So try as you may to resist if you must
Just realize in the end it's destiny's  way or bust
patience is a virtue that we all should embrace
Living life to the fullest while destiny lies in wait.

Preparing to make her move at just the right moment.
Molding us and guiding us until we are summoned
To the only place where we will truly find peace.
The place where the door reads "Destiny"

Once we reach this place of peace and tranquility.
We will strive to make it last for all eternity
This place has never been hidden or shaded
But is only revealed when destiny gets tired of waiting.

Right now, enjoy what you think is meant to be your fate.
Just know destiny's appearance has no set time or date.
When it comes, you better hold tight
Because upon arrival you are in for the best ride of your life.
