God will give you more than you can handle

So you learn you can’t do it by yourself

God will give you more than you handle

So you will have to ask for help

God will give you more than you can handle

So you will truly live

God will give more than you can handle

So you have more to give,

God will give you more than you can handle

Your cup will overflow

God will give you more than you can handle

Laughter among friends, music and tears in the snow

God will give you more than you handle

Let the gratitude infuse

God will give you more than you can handle

Non nobis solum nati sumus, is the Truth

NaPoWriMo Day 6: Line Breaks

You were supposed to be the lock

I the key

But you veered differently

You traded loyalty and promise

For unfamiliar

Kiss

I tried to forgive but my heart never forgot what you

Did

 

I do

Wander through the desert stuck at perpetual oasis

Unsure of sight/sound of torture/bliss

I do

Make new promises I can’t keep

Only fulfilling steadfast lack of sleep

I do

Trust that in time

I will find

What I seek

May you find that only always forever that you misplaced unreplicable key

 

May your lock never un-latch

Perhaps

S/he will stomp your door in, guns blazing and show you a new way

I hope you will never be okay

 

Black Dirt

Black dirt,

Will it make it worse?

Make it hurt?

Black dirt,

Will it make it work?

Feel it in your bones

Holy uncontrolled,

Feel it in your soul.

 

Scatter me into the wind,

I thought I would always call you a friend

But now I’m staring down labyrinths, lost again,

I remember the way your eyes,

Used to look into mine,

Long before I drank the poisoned wine,

I tried and I tried to just be fine,

But my heart was shards of what it was,

Covered in invisible cuts,

Wanting so badly to go in reverse but the course is ran,

Please forgive me I can hardly stand,

I’m sinking in the:

 

Black dirt,

Will it make it worse?

Make it hurt?

Black dirt,

Will it make it work?

Feel it in your bones

Holy uncontrolled,

Feel it in your soul.

 

Scatter me once again,

I could no longer pretend

That your shadow didn’t offend,

I remember the way we were innocent,

Before the river ran dry,

Long before I drank the poisoned wine,

I tried and I tried to just be fine,

But burning anger consumed my love,

Covering you in invisible cuts,

I want so badly to take it back,

Truth is, I don’t know who I am,

I’m sinking in the:

 

Black dirt,

Will it make it worse?

Make it hurt?

Black dirt,

Will it make it work?

Feel it in your bones

Holy uncontrolled,

Feel it in your soul.

 

 

Cast Your Shadow

Cast your shadow

On me

I’ll be everything

That we wanted to be

I guess love

Really is just

A construct

Of the mind

But I’ll be

fine, fine, fine

Just give it

time, time, time.

Cast your shadow on me

I’ll be everything

That we wanted to be

Cast your shadow on me

I’ll be everything

That we’ll never be
