Beast Within

There’s a monster she hides deep within
It holds the pain of all that has been
But it begs to be set free
For the world to finally see
With teeth and claws it rips and shreds
And it brings to light all she dreads
The beast within her is now awake
The peace it gave her it now will take


Seeking To Be Free

She longs to be wanted
And no longer haunted
By loneliness and fear
That are always so near
To be free of these chains
Their heaviness that drains
Walk away from the dark
That weighs down her dear heart


Within The Flames

The flames consume all in its way
Making the night as bright as day
But the fire is nothing to fear
Though you feel the heat as it draws near
Watch as it dances in the sky
Finding such freedom there up high
Moving and swaying without a care
Breathing and sighing in the night air
Don’t live your life hiding in ice
These flames of love may not come twice
So in your heart let the fire burn
And in your soul let freedom return


More Than You See

She still stands, stronger than you thought
Though not the outcome that you sought
For any challenge she will always rise
All those that urge her to quit she defies
She’s not your puppet led by strings
Not your slave or one of your things
And when all that she is you fail to see
Deep in her heart she will set herself free
The greatest gift you just let slip
Through your fingers and from your grip
And with another she will finally find
True passion exists for her heart and mind

***This was inspired by a wonderful and insightful post by Naima.


How It Should Be

Make her feel safe, not suffer fear
Make her smile, not shed a tear
Your hands should never bring her pain
She will not live tied to a chain
Lives should be shared and not controlled
A real man needs not to be told
Tender love is all he should give
So in dread she won’t have to live


Whispers

Your voice resonates in my mind
Softly ringing and unconfined
So many words are still unspoken
Longing for that lock to be broken
To hear all those words that you write
As I see your face in new light
To feel your touch and know you are real
To know you share everything I feel
By the look shining in your eye
And lips releasing that soft sigh
When you pull me close and whisper low
That from my eyes no more tears will flow
You make my heart finally whole
Starting a fire within my soul


This Longing

My arms ache to hold you
My lips crave to kiss you
These ears pining for the sound
To hear your voice all around
This mind yearns to break free
So your love it can see
Because my heart longs to love
And give beyond and above
So come and release me
Your touch will set me free
