A Year Put to Rest


One more year

The worst thus far

My heart rejected

The soul dejected


Except the summer

On borrowed time

When chance sprang like

The new spring sprung


But as the fall

Grew ever closer

The love once shared

Became one-sided


My hope remains

As faith unfounded

Blooded stains

Protect unbounded


Love Reprogramming – Iteration 12


To commit

This sacred act

Share my heart

With one yet found

I must foremost

Yearn for her

So that bond

Will anchor soundly

Second I must

Be devout

Keep her free

And whole

And growing

What comes next

Is up to her

If she’ll have me

Fingers crossed

Only then will

Love return

To fill my soul

With joy eternal
