A Prayer

A Prayer

A Poem by alienated.aquarius

I used to hate Sundays

The reset button

Of the s****y work week

Ironically, I look forward to them now

Because of him

Now, Sundays are for sex and sativa

When seven years ago

It was self-harm.

I’ve never felt so safe

In someone’s arms before

Your kisses absorb the pain

I’ve been harvesting too long

But I have this uncanny talent

For ruining amazing things

So please, please

Don’t let me f**k this up.

Indeed a poem full of honesty and a mix of happiness and, in equal measure, fear of failure, of repeating past mistakes even though safety is reached. Such vulnerability.

Powerful use of words and thoughts my friend.
"Your kisses absorb the pain
I’ve been harvesting too long"
I did like the above lines. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
