Love: “and I know not if I sink or swim”

Love:

here’s how I see it;
everybody should have the
ability to walk around with
two sign optionality:

1. No vacancy
2. Open: (all rooms have A/C & cable)

never be disappointed; you know what you’re getting up front

and for an extra fee

3. credit cards Not Accepted

“A ship there is and she sails the seas,
she's laden deep, as deep can be
but not so deep, as the love I'm in
**and I know not if I sink or swim”**

“The Water is Wide” traditional folk song
Esther Cee Mar 2019
The pain you inflicted when you depart
       created a heavy storm in my heart
But I cling to His promise of perfect time
       where someday we'll met
       and two hearts be let.

once was a star sparkling bright
towards the burning sun he ran
but he got blinded by the light
and with his rise his fall began
.
by falling deep he scorched the sky
and thus brought others down with him
one brother died and one got burned
fading brilliance, gloom and grim
.
far away from sun and sky
the star could see again
he saw a milion distant lights
and he would understand
and he would spread his wings and fly
back to his brothers side
.
from then, the star
can still be seen
upon a summersky at night
his mind shines starry, pale and clear
and when they saw his glooming light
they named him Altair
Inspired by Assassins Creed and the origins of the main characters name.

AC
During the winter time
I sleep with my AC on
Some people ask why
and to those folks I respond

Sometimes when I go to sleep
My mind begins to wander
Filled with negative thoughts
And when they come, I ponder

When it's quiet, and I can't sleep
I am painfully reminded
That I'm a huge burden
The silence has me blinded

With the AC on, I may be cold
But it masks the sound I dread
It soft gentle sound soothes me
and reminds me to go to bed

Looking out the window
with the AC covering my back
and I see everything that I lack.

Such a shut in. I'm a sin
and I'm dipped right in this,
but it didn't ever drop me deep enough
to lose it, but I know this
is just the beginning
of a life shut down by all this corruption.
The cells in my body are turning
and my words are covered in a different color.
So come and get me when they reach you.

I'm looking out the window
with the AC covering my back
and all I see is everything that I lack.
From all the happys and the joys
all I have is the sound of your voice,
but you're not here and you were never here.

I'm ripped apart and
I'm stuck in a phase of demolition
of my heart and all my principals.
You could say I'm full of this need to destroy
everything in my own being,
just to see exactly what it feels like.
I'm a messed up man and
I'll beat myself until I can barely stand.
Put me on this battlefield,
but don't blame me when I get shot.

I'm looking out the window
with the AC covering my back
and all I see is everything that I lack.
From all the happys and the joys
all I have is the sound of your voice,
but you're not here and you were never here.

You could say I'm in a tug of war
with my pros and my cons on each side.
The loser gets to fall and get drug in the mud,
the loser gets drained of all it's pride.

I'm looking out the window
with the AC covering my back
and all I see is everything that I lack.
From all the happys and the joys
all I have is this fiction with the sound of your voice,
but you're not here...you're not here
and you were never here at all.
From all the happys and the joys all I have is this fiction with the sound of your voice.
