Mourned are the times we so loved but lost, Wasted are the words we spoke in years forgot; Regrets now all that bind as one our fractured hearts, Broken be our lives yet still entwined by lovers knots.
What is buried so deep inside A memory so entwined many lines and differing angles The same frame can be seen Differently with different lenses Different outcome for every scene Can alter all the things And I would not remain as the person I am
We entwine our hearts, growing into each other. So when things fall apart, and the other decides to pull away, we're ripping ourselves up by the roots, and cutting into our own skin, to get a taste of freedom In the sunlight.
I was once your sunlight....
You won't need water from the rain we kissed so dearly in. My tears will forever be enough to watch you grow, while I sit alone, giving you the water from my body and watching you thrive as I shrivel and die at your feet.
These are the hands that will guide you to greatness, These are the hands that will stay through the years, These are the hands that will celebrate good times, And these are the hands that will wipe away tears.
These are the hands that will love you forever; When you are weak they will help you feel strong, And, right now, since these hands are entwined together These hands are precisely where they belong
Recently I was asked to write and perform a hand-binding wedding ceremony for two of the loveliest people I know while I was dressed as a dragon. It's definitely one of the best things I've ever done, and I doubt I'll ever do anything like it again! This is the poem I wrote for the special moment.
You've been sweet talking Me lullabies And holding my hand When it's dark outside. You've been so steady When I've stumbled Holding me in When I start to crumble. You've been a reminder Of my flaws And why they don't matter The way they did before. You've been broken and twisted Yet simple and kind So like me where it matters Our lives entwined. I've loved and despised you Had you in my brain You've kept me close by And pushed me away. We've fallen and risen Survived a spiral, a whirl A story, so simple, About a boy and girl.
