Walk Away

It’s his own negative karma, she said
years ago, words ringing still in my mind
tonight when I saw him fighting, yelling
as he circled her and tried to control her
as he had tried once to control me.
I wanted to go see.
I wanted to witness this
because this second time, not me this time,
he’s the constant
it must be him, not me, but
I wanted to see him sweat.
I wanted to save him
and calm the combatants but
It’s his negative karma
she whispered in my ear across the years,
and so I walked inside
instead
and locked the door
behind me.

Faith

Keeping the faith…

I have faith in your love. You will always love me.
I have faith in your strength to withstand what may come.
I have faith in the joy that we bring, blessed be.
I have faith in your laughter, so full and wholesome.

I have faith that the demons will cower in fear
When seeing the brightness our true love creates.
I have faith that those who would throw their spears
Will find that our love is too pure to abate.

I have faith we will face every challenge life brings
Both evil and good, as lovers, as friends.
I have faith that we will grow together, find wings
To lift up our spirits, to soar without end.

I have faith that our faith will just grow over time.
I will always be yours, and my knight will be mine.

How to Push Away

Life is a process and requires your active participation – just show up.

It’s hard to push someone away,
unless they want to go.
The ones who love will fight to stay.
I guess that’s how you know.
Will they still love when you are wrong?
When you need extra care?
Or will they run, too weak to help,
too frightened and too scared?
The tears, the yells, and the attacks
are hard for one to take.
To hold back, and not react
shows true strength, never fake.
You’ll always know I love you true.
I’ll never flee away from you.
