the tides are rising

My heart is heavy from the waiting.
Lonely from sitting in silence
with nothing but my own inadequacies
to balm the wounds time festers.

Patiently abiding the time of recognition
when fate bows down and bestows a grace
sacrificing these tribulations for the mercy of love,
I wait for the coming of salvation
the benediction of true loves embrace.

The tides are rising-
and the binding on my soul is strong
am I to die a martyr?
With imminent despair I implore
come home and untie me...

    No despair life is full of lessons we all learn them on our own time, you'll be fine just as fine as your poetry! Laura :)

    What a deep, longing request to be free. But, from who? Another or yourself? Hmm. :) This was thought-provoking stuff! Wonderful job!

    Understood. We are human. It can & will get better as long the desire to want that is there. :)
