Despite Even Me

Despite Even Me

We had our time but it has passed 

One

Two

Three chances 

Missed 

This inversion nearly laid me out

Sucking down 

Pressing 

until there was no Oxygen

The most powerful of emotions

– Love 

Under the covering of a silence so heavy

Unwilling 

Chilling

Killing

my heart in the process 

A brick wall 

Laid steady stone upon stone 

Unmovable yet ready to burst

Longing draped so thick and heavy 

The weight of it is suffocating 

The hope of ripping it down to see the light again is

Waiting

Anticipating

Lifting 

Me to greater understanding 

Of chances

Wary of second glances

Fancy wordy romances 

This is my time to soar

Above the silence

Beyond the covering

of love’s strangled hope

Despite even me 

One

Two

Three times gone

Too many to count

Too few to remember

Snap!

I take flight!
