Again my unquiet mind asks
Is there anything
Here worth saving?

Overwhelmed by the
Terrifying potential,
Hope tramples my fear

No troubadour

Photographs and memories
Things I look upon to see
How damaged I've become
But will I always be?

Phantom limb pain

The part of me that died
The glow behind your eyes
The warmth I used to feel
The worth I hoped was real
The love that burned within
This aching phantom limb.

So much to say,
My words still churn 
But there’s no way
To ease this burn
For you can’t know
About my pain
To see you clear
And feel the stain
Our history’s shade
And lover’s crime
I’d burn it down
To make you mine
Instead I pine
And deign to play
My lesson learned
I fade away.

My silence offended
My words saddened
And my touch hurt
How else could it end
But with tears and pain?

Some hurts do not heal
Some wounds never seal,
Some blood will not dry
Some loves refuse to die,
When we start we cannot know
When we fail then time will show.
