Afraid

Afraid to love;

It is a tremendous burden to bear,

To have somebody.

Afraid to lose,

It is a pain unlike any other,

The soul’s malady.

Happiness is a precarious possession,

To a heart soon to be destitute of love.

For there is a fate worse than death

To live, but never whole again for another breath.

They Belong to the Ages

One moment he was safe and sound.

The next one they laid him to the ground.

And they called it fate.

To which we men are bait

Sometimes life without them is impossible

Fate taking them away is unforgivable

And it’s like nobody cares

When you’re lost in one of your worst nightmares

Nothing’s forever maybe you can pretend

For the beginning of everything there is an end

Once a man has crossed life’s stages

He becomes one with the ages

At one point we’ve got to move on

This one life isn’t for long

Don’t ever think they’ve just disappeared

They’re right there in your every tear!

*To grandpa : love, 12 year old me*
