Memory of love

I went looking for you everywhere, through time and space, heaven and hell,  I did not find you. I listened  in the wind, no sound of your voice; I’ve search the  sun’s rays hoping to capture your smile. With tears in my eyes, I pleaded my case to the ocean but to no avail. The elements reveal  no clue of your energy, life doesn’t remember your breathing, death has no tombstone for you. Where have you gone? My heart remembers you, it remembers the way you loved me, the way you held me safely in your arms, the way your eyes caressed me in kindness. My soul bears tattoos of your kisses and passion, though this world has forgotten you, know that you will live forever and exist in me, for I have become the memory of your love.

Look at me

Look at Me

No, Look at me!

I’m drowning in pain

I cant breathe

The smiles aren’t real

I’m just another  broken spirit that has learned to function, because who looks beyond that?

I’m a mother, wife, sister and a friend. I functioned in those roles,

while little by little, dying in pain.

Look at me  please before  I am no more.
