She cannot

She cannot script
the carnage left behind

Scattered bits of memories
Unsuccessfully hidden heartache

Etched across her weary mind

She cannot mumble a phrase

To express just how she feels
Inside is dark and hallow

Joyous moments relied upon to erase

She cannot face the morn

Without some twinge of inner pain
She dares not mention of it

Complaints cannot adorn

She cannot rest her tired head

Upon a pillow soft
Without streams of tears

Lonely nights become her dread

Hi guys, I hope you’ve enjoyed reading a sample of my ever-growing poetry collection. The majority of my work is completed within a few minutes to an hour’s time. I would like to devote more of my time to my creative works. If you’d like to help, there are a few links below where you can contribute and support my efforts. I need just 50 people willing to support me for about 33¢ a day, that’s a $10 donation to my Patreon each month. 33¢ doesn’t sound like much, but I am more than willing to live a humble life that I look forward to each day. I’m up right now at 2:37AM. I have not slept because I’m so passionate about my work. Please help me build my passion into a sustainable business. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! 

~Leesa Love

Searching

I’m sorry, Lord
It’s so selfish of me
Be here I sit
My womb is empty
I have no arms to hold me down
I have no hope to prevent me from drowning
Deeper I go
Harder, I fall
Is there any hope?
Any hope at all?

I am ashamed
By the way that I feel
But all I see
Is life uphill
I want to hope
I want to dream
I want to let go
I want to scream

Hold me now
Despite my fear

 

Catch me I’m falling
Still searching for hope
But I’m dyin’ here!

Rings

Ring upon his finger
Threw it to the side

Betrayals often linger
Secrets he can’t hide

He longed to be a father
Someone to carry his name

He decided not to bother
He thought they were all the same

Scratches on a golden band
Guilty fingers on his hands

No pillow on which to lay his head
Weary from choices and that they led
to nowhere

Lifting up his eyes he knew
He’d found a love that was so true

And though the cuffs went on that day
She had every right to go

But she’s by his side the whole damn way!

Rings upon her fingers
Forgiveness in her hands

Betrayals often linger
She proudly wears both bands

He longed to be a father
A request she could not fill

She could have chosen not to bother
But
She never will

Hurt

The saddest song I’ve ever known
Is you in there
And I alone
I look around to find support
No one is found and so

I hurt

I hurt for you
I hurt for me

I worry for I cannot see

Are you okay?
Are you alright?

Are you hurting for me tonight

I long to hold you
My heart is torn

This is the saddest song
I’ve even known

Love done right

Yonder in the distance
Who’s that I see?
Why that’s my lover
Coming back for me

You told me to leave him
She said I should cheat
The road wasn’t easy
But the lesson was so great

Years flew by like days at the beach
Mornings came with grace
Nights were for dreaming
Days moved at a steady pace

It wasn’t so hard now
They thought we were done
We sure showed them
This race can be won!

Now look, he is running
With open arms to hold
Our hearts never aged
Despite the years making us old

Look at that smile
That glimmer in his eye
Oh, there’s no mistaking
Love done right!

A dream’s end

Awakened from a dream
I’d rather not leave
Still feeling the warmth
Of you against me

Your gentle hands hold
Tightly to my whole
Heart as if trying to keep me together
As I start to fall apart

Baby, don’t go
It’s too soon for you to leave
It can’t be morning yet
Let’s go back to sleep

But the dawn breaks in
Sounding the alarm
I am awake now
No longer wrapped in your arms
