Love for a Man With No Face
Unsure of the circumstance,
But I knew his love deserved a chance.
So I came to him with my open arms.
I loved his touch, his kiss, his mind,
His past was rough but left behind.
His temper was muted by his charm.
Can not say I never doubted him,
His roots were planted deep in sin.
I loved how he could laugh at pain.
His head was toward the golden sun,
Devoured until his life was done.
And still I stayed and never complained.
Stars shift when we stare up high.
He walks in shadows of despise.
Woe the feeling I hold when he speaks.
With him my heart has reason to smile,
With me he goes through no hurt nor trials.
Home sweet home to him is damaged streets.
My breathe goes short when I see his face.
I’ll walk for miles just for his embrace.
And when he’s gone I just feel cold.
I look at myself and I can not deny,
The love that’s boiling in and outside.
I can sit with him and let my heart unfold.
My mother says no and still I walk.
But when I see him I sob, not talk,
Life is over when our time is through.
He holds me close and says goodbye,
Wipes the water from my eyes,
And whispers from afar ‘I love you.’
He’s always here but never there.
Sometimes I think I should never care.
And my mind cries out why bother.
But just because he gave me life,
I’ll give him mine without a fight,
Because all I ever wanted was a father.
