heartbreak no.

and that’s when I knew
it was a mistake to love you;
everything I would give
always less than I’d take away
because you have a heart
that only breaks on demand –
that’s how you control
the ones who control you;
it’s how they fall for what you
say and not what you do.

light of grace

her name,
what she exudes;
delivered me
and opened up
a realm
of opportunity;
flesh of my womb,
i bled for her
and would bleed
to take away
the pain
of her
not knowing
how she saves
and brings to life
the light
that is inside of me,
now a light for all
the world to see;
it is hers i carry
with me.
