Thud

So much lost,
So much gained.
Fear and love,
Both estranged.
I gave an inch,
But it took a mile,
Now I’m trying to figure out,
If it was worth my while.
I am worn thin,
By things out of my control,
The truth is,
The daily grind takes no toll.
It’s these intricate things,
Cropped up in my past,
That seem to linger on,
A light casting a shadow,
That continues to last.
Buried with lessons learned,
And pages burned,
I look for the answers I chose to hide,
Looking for somewhere to confide.
I’ve got a language spoken in my mind,
One I can’t let anyone else find,
Because it speaks my secrets,
The things my heart endures,
Just to keep up this folly,
That life is pure.
It’s got it’s up and downs,
Twists and turns,
But there is only one thing,
For which my heart yearns,
Peace,
Be with you,
My sister, brother,
Friend, and lover.
I wish you all the best.
Because I can’t put this to rest.
I hope you find what it is you are looking for,
But that heart is still beating under the floor.
I toil all day and all night,
But it beats ever louder,
It’s giving me a fright.
Because it won’t silence,
Even against all odds,
I will never find peace,
In the cacophony of it’s throb.
