The Enlightenment of My Faith

The Enlightenment of My Faith

A Poem by butterfly

The world is on fire
With natural and human made flame
Still it is and always will be God who Inspires
If you dare to enlighten in the faith
Only He can make all this pain fade
He is the God of the living and the dead
A metaphor that means so much
Yet is the path to an endless love
I have made so many mistakes
Which is why my 43 years have resulted in endless heartaches
I thought because of love we shouldnt be guilty of what we have done
No matter how lonely something bound you and me only
But time and space keeps us apart
Maybe we are not destined with the entwined heart
Yet he and they still call
Only wanting the snuggle after all
Sometimes I too want the touch
Then I realize its me craving that drug
So I gave up all my vices
To dear tequila and vodka I also said goodbye with tears in my eyes
They were my friends in the best years of life
I said goodbye to the married man
But when he went to Albuquerquefor work
he bought me a souvenir t shirt
He took an uber to drop it off
At the gate he gave me a kiss with tongue
Since that night its all i dream of
i let it go
I know i am supposed to close the door
its all a game for all these human shadows
its like they threw out their heart forever more
But not me
Even if I remain single and lonely permanently
The romantic in me will be for eternity
I hear God speak He wants me
He is the true master of poetry
He is the only one to understand
even as the world drowns in this quicksand
I know there is no reason to be afraid
I feel the enlightenment of my faith.
