I protect you
Your thoughts
Your secrets
Your pain

You hurt me
You are my thoughts
My secrets
My pain
You said “ I would follow you to ****”

What you didn’t know was that I was already there.
Who are you?
A boat for me to paddle
Or a paddle for my boat

Are you for me?
Or are you against me?

Let every controversy lay aside
Let every pretence stand void
Identify your warrior
Clear your disbelief.
O Daddy O Daddy
Where is my chance?
Years spent to prove you right fail terribly.
I cry myself to sleep holding the sound of your absent voice near my side.
You caress your other children and your beloved wife.
The distance I couldn’t bear much longer until I lied my head upon my soul and it told me I was not alone.
Just left.
Rose petals plucked
He loves me
He loves me not
He loves m—
You value your family most when its mentality possesses the power of a fetus.
Must I shut myself up to get you to listen?
The whistling of my sweet desperation
Time after time wasted mending something I can not truly touch.
You hold the glue in your heart.
Fix me.

“Woof, woof...,” I am not now,
“Errrrr...,” nor have I ever been,
& will never be disloyal, ”Woof,”
Said my dog
What I hear whenever I see my dog, Klevera... :)
Why do I love?                                                    
Is it because I want to feel loved in recoil or is it the thought of love in absentia soldiering me to asset love.

Tell me what love is?

Love is the reason I want to get out of bed early in morning to watch the sunrise in her presence,                                           
Love makes my feet numb and my heart seek solitude whenever she stands next to me or sit beside me in the bus on the journey to free my heart.                                                  
Love takes authority of your heart’s emotions desire that feel like a burden, not to her they aren’t,                                                  
Love gives you perception, to see her for who she is, not what she can’t be but what she’s worth.                                                           ­ 
Love is a ****** who invariably needs rehab to stay on track and feel alive where there’s oblivion in array.

Ask me what love isn’t?  

Love isn’t waiting for you across the street,
Love wants you to play a game of chase, chase me if you fancy me love said.                                    
Love isn’t a pack of sheath you keep in your ripped side pocket jean for a quickie,                                                         ­              Love isn’t a puppy nor a cub you can teach to play a game of fetch nor play dead,                                                            ­  
Love isn’t your wrecked black sedan you can panel beat back to its mint right condition,                                                       ­ 
Love isn’t your typical Cinderella fairytale were the glass slipper is fated to fit foolproof,  
                  
Why do I love you asked!      
        
I love to know love, what it’s like to put her in rehab ahead of enemy lines and what it’s like to see the perception of her own personification.

“I almost hate
Letting people
Into my life
Because they always leave”
The senior Lama
Thought to himself
As he eats
Every day
Shunned by his mother
For slaying his father
And feeling awkward
Most of his life
As a grown man
Until a young woman
Came into his monastery
His life
And heart
When she told what happened
To her
He felt more than compassion
But more love
That was the
Night he
And the young woman
Fell in love
Knowing that she was broken
Too
He knew she wouldn’t leave him.
pseudonym Dec 2018
Using the wood from the oak tree we met under, we built our bridge.

Bolting pieces together with trust, carefully, and strengthening over time

Creating a once non existent path leading from one spirit to another

Constructed far above a winding river of disloyalty and acrimony

I would meet you in the middle, its weakest point,

and still the bond we built between us would support our insecurities

I was safe with you on our bridge of companionship

I was fearless with you on our bridge of loyalty

We were indestructible on our bridge of unity

So why did I burn it down
Keith Mitchell Dec 2018
loyalty
trust
unwavering guarantee
once found
mindful
nothing last forever
possibilities
crash n burn
leather is no match
inevitable skin burn
relentless search
easier finding a creature
trench in the ocean abyss
without a flashlight
if you’re lucky enough
to find someone loyal
cherish the preciousness
hold it tight
grab that hand
don’t let it go
all the same
holding on to hopes
emergency cord
plunging parachute
patience
justifying
existence
one love
Keith Mitchell Dec 2018
consciousness
sitting on a fence
realm of stásis
heart floating in one direction
common sense in the other
eyes stay wide
deep and far reaching
universe just outside my reach
fingertips yearning
loyalty
compassion
someone there
no hoops to jump through
circumstances appreciated
never expected
rising in the moment
appreciation of gratitude
given
consistency
sparkle in your eyes
your touch
meandering kisses
oral rapture
touching my heart
vibration a ripple
far reaching effect
unknown
brilliance of you
