Rest Well Dad


In the early morning there you laid,
silenced by the last breathe you gave,
your mouth agape and eyes opened wide;
in that moment we could no longer deny
you had finally come to your end.

As we held your hands softly in the
quietness the moment finally settled in; we
painfully released tears deep from within
realizing  now nothing more of you remained;
no more struggles and no more pain.

Overcome from the memories we shared
the grief of losing you so hard to bear;
as we saw your vitality slowly stolen
all of your years came down to days;
what was given was terribly taken.

Even though you knew your eventual outcome,
you looked on life with a deep ponderance.
Exuding warmth and love was your essence;
words so profound yet simplistic in manner
touching others in an everlasting fashion.

Now comes the arduous task of moving on,
leaving all behind what was the past;
no choice now but for us to be strong.
I know deep inside that’s what you wanted
though the memories will still leave me haunted.

So, I’m leaving this place never to come back again;
too many memories that just brings up pain.
Carrying with me the ones that pleasantness brings,
your voice, your touch, your laughter and the such
knowing that I take the parts of you I loved so much.

Treacherous Heart


Wicked and twisted,
I never had a chance;
of petulant character
you refused to sympathize.
Slighted, you reasoned
a motive to capitalize,
unremorseful was your stance.
With a treacherous assault you attacked
with every ounce of your being;
you didn't think twice to hold back.
With such ferocity it sent me reeling,
taken aback not sure how to react;
my only thought is a painful recognition
of the irreversible damage you exact.
Never did I think this could happen;
of you I was so convinced
but now I’m on the floor grappling;
my mind trying to make some sense
of the aftermath you left me with.
Emotions torn like flesh on a barbed wired fence,
sadly I have only myself to blame for this.
so desperate yet I trusted you still,
now my life is all torn apart
to exact my revenge is my only will;
I’ll be done with you when I kill – my treacherous heart.

Swallowed

Inside my heart, I find a black hole exists;
there sadness and hopelessness persists
despite the love from others it resists;
pushing me from the very ones I subsist.

I don’t know how it started gaining control of
my thoughts and feelings of all I’ve come to know;
logic has disappeared into the depths below;
left in this abyss where nothing can grow.

No matter what I always was positive and happy,
but now I’m no longer the person I used to be;
all I am is just negative and full of apathy
and could care less now if I became a casualty.

It seems my actions are no longer benign;
as if I’m trying to ruin this life of mine.
The sparkle that was in me no longer shines;
I don’t know if anyone can stop this in time.

Constantly I have to deal with debilitating pain,
despite treatment my affliction doesn’t wane;
all my emotions and spirit have all but drained
and I wish I could go to sleep and there remain.

My love, I’m sorry for sounding so selfish,
to me you’re everything and you I will always cherish;
I thought the both of us would make it to the finish
but I can no longer live this life of anguish…
