Breakthrough

Poem By Kristina Louisa Carr

My heart held captured by snow storms
Surrounded by icicles of different forms
A world of silence and covered by snow
Feelings of peace and serenity I can't let go

Then without much notice you came around
And my world is crumbling and breaking down
You know that I never asked you to melt my icy wall
But you did it anyway and I lost my security and all

Now you are residing right here in my heart
But you dont let me find you from the start
I know that you exist only in my dreams
But I will keep searching for you - it seems

You left me out in the cold and without protection
But you are not real yet - only a vague reflection
Understand that I could become anyone you want me to be
Because you are my savior and only you set me free

Only you broke through layers of debris and time
And I must say that the possibility of us is truly sublime
I long to see your smile and a spark in your eyes
I am so tired of pretense empty compromises and lies

I often think of you and if you could love me
Wishing for a crystal ball to finally find you - you see
You broke through to my heart and opened a wide door
So walk on through already and come to the fore

Before Dark

Dusk right before dark is my favorite time of each day
The dim light feels as if I am only in this world halfway
Right then it is time for shadows taking over the light
And colors fade slowly to shades of black and white

Rain

Rain is electricity for my soul
Like a light switch turning on my emotions
The rain - soft, wet, warm embracing
Water in the desert of my world

Drowning

My smile has been declined
The laughter in my world silenced
I feel stone weights around my ankles
And tomorrow seems like a year away

Three Some

Your vision in my head is a deceit
You're not the one that I wanted
The beginning of the affair was sweet
But what I feel now is being taunted

Good Bye

The morning after we said our final good bye
What I remember is a single tear from your eye
Today it hit me that I can't call you anymore
To tell you how my day was and it's you I adore

Lagos

City of noise, fumes, dirt and corruption
City of beaches, money, luxury and lust
A city where your wisdom is lost
Where serenity is covered in sweat and blood
