Salvage

Standard

I’m left in the aftermath
of my earthquake-striken life;
trying to make sense of
the pieces that no longer fit.

I need you now
to salvage what remains;
you’ve done it before
come back and do it again.

Why I wrote this:
My life was in shambles and I’m not used to being that way. Being a whole continent away from my best friends, I needed them there beside me. I needed that shoulder.

Shades of Perfect

Standard

I thought you were my support.
That I could fall apart in your arms.
Until I was ready to piece myself together.
But you weren’t, and all I was, was broken.

I thought you were my knight.
Yet you had no armor nor a horse.
You were perfect, then you weren’t.
My flaws were apparent and yours too.

I thought you always had the words.
Those right words to soothe my restless heart.
A rush of fire to my dwindling hope.
How wrong I was to believe so.

But I learnt, I couldn’t expect you to be perfect.
Just to understand my imperfections.
You are human, just as much as me.
We err.

To myself. To my creator.
I am perfect.
That is my peace.
My support.

He has the words to forever guide me.
Like He guides you.
I don’t need a knight when I have a King.
He is everything I always needed, I just didn’t see it then.
