Tonight, I saw you at the corner of the road,
standing, with falling shoulders and lowered head,
not lonely, rather alone with yourself,
the best company I would say,
even if it appears contrary to you at the moment

Though, your shoulders are falling,
they are gracefully carrying the excruciating pain of your heart,
those stiff muscles are holding you straight,
yes, your head is lowered down,
yet, what a marvelous posture of your body
I adore you,
your presence, existence is a source of emulation for many,
they are admiring their standing woman-man, their stoikiy muzhik,
as standing their itself is an act of courage,
that you are holding on

I don’t know what ransacked you,
must have been terrible,
but not strong enough to break your resilience,
the terseness of your being,

I adore you
Tonight, when you go back home,
don’t just reach and lay on the couch,
go in front of that mirror,
the one that you have not seen for long
let your intimate self undress you,
praise your beautiful body,
doesn’t matter whether it has gained weight or lost,
if gained, admire those layers of new flesh,
they are eager to burn themselves up for you, just for you,
if lost, praise those beautiful bones,
which are highlighting the flow of universe inside the canvas of your body,
see yourself, raise your head,
give respect to your resilient shoulders,
to your eyes which drained themselves dry to make you feel better,
see the grace and light they have when they daringly carry your vulnerability with style,
they deserve a smile,
while smiling, respect your mind, you awareness,
which is not acting as your master anymore,

when was the last time you caressed your
beautiful eyes, hair, face,
when was the last time you caressed your
breast, chest, all below,

Don’t sleep tonight,
your cupboard is waiting for your touch,
you have kept on contacting them,
but for tonight, for one last moment,
one last act of courage,
that gods themselves are not expecting from you,
shut their mouth,
defeat death, for tonight,

Touch
touch your books, shoes, clothes, diary, pen,
that beautiful lamp in the corner,
your bed that has not been made up,
touch your work, they long for your love,
and they, all of them have waited for this very moment,
just one last deed,
affirmatively whisper…

I haven't even touch upon it
All I see is blackness in my dreams
This darkness follows me like shadow
Is it an indicator to a bleak future
Am I made without a cure
?

I keep my head aloft, from the mist I breath,
Facing the demons dancing with me,
adamant to hear nor see with a blind eye,
weary of clobbering the paper heart inside,
Flaw

perform the wonder of the day
see it, feel it, and get on your way
take the challenge on and be not surprised
the results that endure just might be disguised
the decision is yours, and yours all alone
be ready for anything, that you might be shown
the end game is simple and could go awry
whatever it is, the fact is you tried...

Give thanks to the Lord for He is good
His love endures forever
He brought me through the desert
His love endures forever
He carried me through 2019
His love endures forever
He comforted me with His presence and the nearness of friends
His love endures forever
He exposed my sin
His love endures forever
then gave me a way out
His love endures forever
He brought healing like streams of water, flowing all over me and washing me clean
His love endures forever
He granted a fresh start, a second chance
His love endures forever
He carried me through 2019
His love endures forever
and He will bring me through 2020
His love endures forever

The Faithful Love of the Lord Endures Forever
based off of Psalm 136 where someone remembers how God has provided for the nation of Israel in the past. I reflected on the past year and how God has provided for me, keeping the refrain "His love endures forever"
George Krokos Jun 2020
It’s said that ‘true love can never die’
and the heart of the lover knows why.
As this love blossoms and becomes pure
throughout all of eternity it does endure.
