The Break

The light hum from water falling
An event we always enjoyed
Maybe that’s all it ever was
Just a series of moments shared
Trapped in a fading memory
The downpour flooding me with thoughts
We will never dance in the rain
I’ll always dream of missed chances
I hope we’ll talk again one day

Flashback Friday Poetry: Ignorance Brings Evil

they come in the night while all are sleeping
to fight off the demons that come creeping
Guardians of Virtue are these creatures
battling for your soul against evil
roaming our land but are not visible

the demons they fight are demons of sin
with their temptations they swallow you in
to deviate you from your path to God
but the Guardians fight against your thoughts
and expel the demon back to the pit

Guardians cannot enter a man’s soul
neither can demons take over control
they can tempt you and persuade your own thoughts
those who have a strong mind will not succumb
to persuasion of thought; God’s Will be done
