No One

No one 
No one goes down the road
I need to go
no one sees the things I see
no one does

no one feels
the pain 
the shame I can’t conceal
I’m sure
no one does

But up above, surrounding me
is a presence that I know
I feel, I see
embraces me

Guiding me throughout
this perilous journey
like no one else ever does
no one
no one does.

I Feel The Coldness In My Heart

February 28, 2012

I feel the coldness in my heart
I feel it envelope me
Turning all to frozen frost
No emotion, no anger, shame or fear
No happiness, laughter or anything sincere
This coldness is all I feel
Here in my frozen sphere.

Let love break the way
Melt sadness, anger all away
Rushing forth with laughter
Keeping coldness far at bay
Drip love down deep within my soul
Making warm caring thoughts
Embrace me entirely all today
Keeping coldness far, far away.
