I Gave You My Soul

I gave you my soul

Naked and vulnerable

What was I thinking?

All I wanted was your love

And you crushed me to pieces.

~

Love is what’s sacred

Yet you treat it like folly

And who’s is the victim,

Me…the one you claim to love

The object of your hatred.

~

Maybe I’m the fool

Gullible, the stupid one

Believing in love

Like Shakespeare’s starstruck lovers

And I’m Romeo

~

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Grateful

Giving from the heart

Reaping rewards, enriching my soul

All for the benefit of others

This is what I strive to fulfill

Even though I am fatally flawed

Finally I realize my purpose

Understanding what it means to love

Lest I become what I most despise

Muddled Thoughts And Sour Mood

Muddled thoughts and sour mood,

So unlike for me to brood.

.

What and why I do not know,

Whilst I wait for it to go.

.

Twist of fate or slight of hand,

Either one would sure be grand.

.

To cheer me up and make me smile

Releasing me from this cursed trial.

.

But alas today it seems to be

Another day without much glee.

.

Clouds of pitch and torrential rains

Dampen my spirit and fog my brain.

.

Sure I know this too shall pass

For gloom this dark cannot last.

.

Until then most sullen I’ll be,

Awaiting the key that sets me free.
