untitled piece of my heart

a single beat
off

the rhythm of my life heard in my ears
yet not embraced in my heart
the warm passionate feeling of seeing the soft hues of pink and purple
in the sunset now escapes me
the warm passionate feeling of love
not of just one single thing, but of everything

I want to be able to rest in twilight’s arms and not
feel the dragging of reality on my weak and tired limbs
I want to sit in his eyes and not feel so betrayed
I want to understand my part; know what is written on my page

And when the wind blows, or the rains pour down upon my face,
know that it is meant
know that in the whole realm of things, it is good
and if I miss a beat I can climb back on the long and rusted track
without questioning why things, people in my life, have been taken from me

know the purpose behind my breath

and trust in that
