Safe

Above all else, I wish that you’ll be safe…

the comfort of knowing that harm

will not greet you tonight.

the idea that your soul and spirit can be at peace-

because they are locked away from the damaging

occurrences of the world…

I want you to be safe.

You’re safe here with me…

Wishful Thinking

I’m wishing for something real

for something really special

crafted in honesty and grace

I’m wishing for something true

for something truly remarkable

in beauty, an irresistible chase

I’m wishing for someone to love

for someone lovely

with a genuine heart

I’m wishing for someone to value

for someone valuable

Priceless like a rare piece of art

All and all, I continue to wish

wishing for beauty  to mesh with trust

I stopped wishing the exact moment

there became a creation of “us”

Wish I Had Known…

My love,

Sometimes I wish

I wish, I had known…

Why?

Why the doors of your heart…

were shut tight,

were locked, bolted, nailed– forever shut to the world?

Forever shut

be careful what you wish for

be careful

Sometimes our wish comes to us at night

Our wish taps us on the shoulder

It’s a message from God

The answer to our questions

The questions of..

Why?

My eyes are shut and sleep surrounds me,

in subconsciousness,

it surrounds me….

“STOP HITTING HER!” “STOP, DADDY STOP!!!” “PLEASE DADDY, STOP HITTING HER!!!””PLEEEEAAAASSSSEEE!!!”

My heart stops

My heart S L O W S to nothingness…

“MAMA!!!!!!, MAMA!!!, MAMA!!!!!”

It’s a little boy

with dirty blond hair

with teary ocean blue eyes…

beating the air with his fists

beating the air.

Tears…

Fill my eyes

I see a him

Seeking to protect his mama

Seeking to protect himself…

from the one he thought would protect him 

from the one he loved deeply

“SSSSHUT UP BOY!!!! YOU GET ON MY F—- NERVESSSSS….

GET OOOOUUUTT OF MYYY D— WAYYYY”

Slurred from his mouth

*smack*

*pow*

*boom*

He falls to the ground in pain

Tears stream down his face

Silence fills the air…

Scared, confused and lost

The little boy whispers…

“I hate you…

 …I hate myself.

Now I know 

Now I know why you can’t accept my love

And I still love you….

I STILL LOVE YOU  

Mo
