Why is it that it is when I am most alone, I feel most present?
I feel like an alien on Earth. I do not understand how I was birthed here.

My home is beyond my physical state, my home is beyond my emotions, and even my desires. My home is where none of those things could dream to reach, in all their perversity and incapability. I will not hurry from Earth, but I do know that this does not even slightly resemble my home.

How blessed I am to know what I am not.

Do not be fooled by my smile,
I am not at peace when I laugh,
I am not home when I am in ecstasy,
I wish to feel the settlement of my heart,
Within the warmth of your hand.

No one has the slightest effect on me,
Like you do.
I always keep you in mind,
Even in the arms of another.

Someone please take my pen away,
For I cannot even bear to face in words the lamentation of my heart!
I cannot bear to acknowledge that I will never kiss my love again!
SerenaDuru Aug 2020
Ye hosts of sadness,
And hatred
Of cruel and selfish nature,
Are not welcome here!

I am a vessel of love,
I am a vessel of love,
I am a vessel of love,
I am a vessel of love ...

When I draw nigh unto thee,
The warmth of Thy Presence encompasses my body,
And my eyelids may lay to rest;
I need not seek anymore.

I am a mere spectator,
Of my determined heart.
SerenaDuru Jul 2020
To some my heart is dim,
And completely void of splendour,
But in your eyes,
My heart is an illumination of an innocent and indispensable love.

May I surrender my heart to an eternity of your gaze?
