Phenominal Eclipse

Stars laid their path across my love
a design so intricate it is not to be understood
I feel him when the sun is high, shining from above
then I feel the other when the moon glows
Darkness falls and bathes me in cloak
shielding my soul as my heart loves them both

Tearing away my desire
does not come I am torn
Chest afire with separated love can only be a horror
The Sun held my love first then the moon returned and love was reborn

Sun rays have held me in times of pain
moonbeams hold me as the suns light fades
Rainbows in the sky even in the rain
Keeps my love alive as the sun shines and I stand in the shade

I would make a wish for the sun to cross the moon
a phenominal eclipse
to murder the unprecedented desire in loves tomb

Bring Me

Bring me to the world
Let me show them that life in itself is not just humanity
We feel animal hungers combined with animalistic insanity
revolving around lust, like an animal you feel the pleasure
a complete necessity
I look into the world and feel everyone looking back at me
Do they know my love is powerful
that it breaks all binds and moves all oceans in one direction
that it can flood the world of humanity
My body is shaken from being wrought with worries I have taken
No smile to form my lips
Drinking happiness from a broken cup
In careful sips
I look for the peace in my world
the balance that will make me normal
I am not angry, I am just beginning to unfurl
The feeling that enlightens me
Is my embrace of my animal self
I am a lion that protects her young
I am mother that protects her sons

One Question One Answer

What is happiness?
Is it a feeling
And if so does it have purpose
Does it have meaning
If you do not have happiness
this feeling
How does one find it
How do you find an emotion, a feeling
is it at a certain destination,
Do you have a map
Now is happiness classified under emotion
if so is it fleeting
passing through your body like tears from crying
anger, sadness
All of which no one wishes to hold in their possesion
Is happiness a tangible jewel a present
We all wish to be happy in some way
You cant look for happiness you cant question its glory
Life wasnt scripted like a musical play
We know where there are tears and no anger or sadnesss
