Soul Ties

soul

Souls intertwined

From the very first time

I heard your voice,

I knew you were mine

 

Connected by chains

That won’t break away

Regardless of what life

Has laid in our way

 

Heavy hearts

Worlds apart

Still so close

I can’t let go

 

I’m under your spell

Weaved in a web

Of your heart and mine

From the very first time

 

Eyes have not seen

Lips  never kissed

Yet bruised by these chains

That won’t go away

 

You’re a part of me now

Deep in my soul

Bound by your love

I’ll never let go

Winds of Change

windDustIntheWind

Dead inside but still alive
Thrashing through life’s angry tides
Sorrow, scorn, remorse, and trials
Wondering if things will ever be right

The winds of change
Have come to dance
To fill your heart with joy
And pure romance

Grieving for what once was the past
Singing the blues
Yearning for a second chance

Yesterday is gone
Like a feather in the wind
Desire crumbles
Like the day well spent

Like a bow and arrow,

Your life has been

Pulled and stretched

Then tossed to the wind
Sailing forward
Straight ahead
To the mark, that was planted
By unseen hands

The winds of change
Have left your bruised
Overturning regret
For all things new

Procrastination and Blah

DSCF1032
by Tonya J in Cozumel August 2015

Procrastination and blah
Running hand in hand
Like best friends on a Sunday night
Dread without determination
How do I get out
Of this rut, I’m in?
Seemingly swallowing my time
Motivation has gone by the wayside

Overwhelmed by nothing at all
Depression creeping in
If I close my eyes I can ignore it all
Making it disappear time and again

Delaying the inevitable
Dawdling my life away
Waiting for some miracle
That will never come my way

Feeling humdrum and unresponsive
To life’s daily routines
Unfeeling and uncaring
As monotonous as it seems

The thief of time has come to steal
My joy and waste the day
A dark cloud has covered me
With discouragement and dismay

Silly Easter Poem

download

Hoppy Easter to my lovies
Colored eggs and Easter bunnies
Creepy pictures on a rabbit’s lap
Cadbury Eggs…what the heck is in the middle of that?

Putting on your Sunday best
Time for one of the two days to go to church
The heck with the rest?
The Passion play and recommitments
Hoping that this time, we’ll keep them.

Plastic grass tangled in the vacuum
Too many deviled eggs…
Guess who’s living in the bathroom

What happens when the kids get older
No messy tables from dying eggs
No egg hunts and baskets
The house seems colder

Till later when the grandkids arrive
Easter will once again come alive

Entangled in Love

tumblr_o15p7s4LCn1spqlu6o1_500

Two worlds, two lives, two souls collide
Bringing together the land and tide
Meeting on life’s rocky shores
Grace abound and love is born

From the first, we both knew
This love would grow and I’d marry you
Through ups and downs and inside out,
Our souls combine free of doubt

Outer darkness tried to come in
With diligence, we were determined to win

The music plays, the flower fades
We refused to let love slip away
With tears in the night
My heart in your hand
Our love renewed
Through a fight to the end

Eternity is not very long
Compared to my love for you
That keeps growing strong

When past loves and lives fade away
Into the darkness where they will stay
A light will shine and our eyes behold
The reason and season
For where we are now
Entangled in love
That was finally found

End of the Rope

 

end_of_my-rope-11

Candles burning at both ends
The stress and anxiety never end
Fights and feuds
Staying up all night
Never sleeping or eating right

What good is this life, you say?
I never thought it would be this way
Reality hits and things go wrong
Making weak what once was strong
The tears I’ve cried for all the years
Can never return what I once held dear

Our love was pure
Our love was deep
It still could be,
But you sow and reap

Please turn around and see the truth
This disease is killing you
Intelligence will get you nowhere
Without wisdom its all a nightmare

You’ve turned into someone I do not know
This isn’t the way it was supposed to go
Somewhere deep inside is YOU
Find him before your face turns blue

While there is breath
There is hope
But once it’s gone
That’s the end of the rope.

The Bridges Burned

burning-bridge

You lost in love
You lost in life
You lost your mind
And paid the price

The things you do for selfish gain
Are slowly driving you insane

Your heart is stone
You’re immature
Swallowing your pride
Could be the cure

You’re so blind
You cannot see
This precious gift
In front of me

Too late now
You’ll never know
The love, The laughter
Of Raising a soul

You ruined it all
But who’s to blame?
You and You alone
What a shame.

Life goes on
We live we learn
And thank God for
The bridges burned

My Written Reflections

Scrubs and Beyond

My Broken Soul Is Crying

dark_love_by_jinx223-d51wh3v

I can’t breathe.

My life hangs in the balance

Slowly dying

Tormented.

 

My soul is in deep despair

Conflict raging everywhere

My hands and feet and heart are numb

For what once was our love has  become

 

A love that started out just right

Has drifted away just like the night

My heart can’t take it anymore

You compromised

So I’m walking out the door

 

One thing can turn this all around

Joy in the morning can still be found

One thing I ask in return

Give me your all and let our passion burn

 

I won’t give in to second place

It’s all or nothing at this stage

I’ve stayed, I’ve cried, I’ve lost myself

In a world of dysfunction

I won’t be found

 

I beg and plea for an escape

But my love for you has me in chains

So here I lay, slowly dying

Tormented, outraged

My broken soul crying

 

 

 

 

 

My Love For You

My love for you is a strange love
As strange as the weather in Texas
As long as the nights in the winter
As sweet as the tea in my mason jar cup

My love for you is deep
Deeper than the deepest ocean
Higher than the clouds and the moon and the sun
As long as the equator

My love for you is frightening
Scaring myself into silence
Alarming the depths of my heart in the night
Terrifying my soul completely

My love for you is unending
Ceaseless even in the darkest days
Infinite regardless of test and trials

Eternal in all of its ways
