Love Hope and Longing

As I gazed upon the night sky, a vision of you came to me as vividly as the starlit sky shining before me. I’m sure it was you who I’ve yet to meet.

The breath of your beauty like the stars flickering upon the night sky. Yet your grace too vast to take in with just one look, not even in one breath can I satisfy my longing to know you.

Yes, I will spend my life exploring your beauty in the depths of your soul, even those darkest places where light has yet to reach.

You’re a treasure like that of a shooting star flying freely across the night sky. Surely, you have no equal, but yourself and that’s what causes your beauty to shine uniquely bright.

If only I can find you in my lifetime, I would then know what it is to be found complete.

My Love, when will you fall from the night sky that I may embrace your love? Until that day we meet I wait patiently with arms opened wide, longing for your warm embrace.

My Love, this I promise and have kept only for you. The day you fall in love with me the day I give my life to you. To protect you, fight for you and upholding your honor by giving my very life to you my heart’s desire.

Even with these words, I cannot express the longing and the love I have for you.

Therefore, this day I promise yes, I do solemnly swear that I’ll spend my life, demonstrating, my Love, this love I have for you.

One day a poem formed in my mind, it happened as a result of an experience I was going though. So I wrote it down and haven’t stopped writing since.

I’m not skilled in grammar and punctuation or even spelling, but I do have a gift for translating my feelings, thoughts and emotions into words, that people can relate to.

My motivation for writing comes from a deeply rooted desire I have to encourage and motivate people.

I know the loneliness, that darkness that leads a person to contemplating suicide, that was once me. I had no one that understood the pain, agony and darkness I was going through.

And that is why I write and share publicly, in hope that I might encourage another human soul needing desperately to hear, “There’s hope, you’re not alone in your struggle”.

I haven’t figured out everything, but what I have figured out I write about, and sometimes I bleed words turning them into poetry.
