The Heart’s Sigh

the stillness of the heart stayed forbidden
in a silent sigh holds every beat inside hidden
beneath the shadows of my heart as it lay then
holding on as i exist on my own to burden

each night sighs with a drop of tears in longing
along in my sleepless night with hearts yearning
i close my eyes tight and feel all the throbbing
like a storm in my night, thunder comes roaring

oh, how it comes to haunt every corner of my mind
as i now desire to leave this earthly body behind
lifting a solitary spirit high in heaven to unwind
and offer my heart in the divinity of love entwined

each time my heart sighs for more than words can say
for what is within that hampers, i would drift away
with whispering words upon my lips i hold and stay
enthrone in mystical silence that bewildered my everyday

i walk alone in the path with hounding thought of fears
sobbed and cried, on myself, i drown in my own tears
in buckled knees, i fall, and in many times i stand in fierce
withstand the battle resounding the loud clashes in my ears

i behold the day that i was born to exist and live
even behind the deepest darkened wall, i resist to believe
for what is found, my eyes were blind and cannot conceive
in falsified truth, my heart waited for long which time deceive

from behind i see my footsteps go round and round in a circle
the mysteries surrounding me, i fought with mindful battle
tried to gain back the pieces of the cracked and broken puzzle
to bring forth into the earthen womb and find my own to snuggle

here to perceive the comfort of my heart to sigh no more
where no deceitful truth of defiance be mourned and store
free oneself in the spirit of wisdom to fulfill in bounty to adore
the longed journey to take with mindfulness to reign and soar

a heart do sigh atoning the wilderness in the daunting of the past
beseeching to be soaked in the drizzle of heavenly love to last
perhaps with no hands to hold, i will have myself from dirt to dust
be a lightened speck and be blown away along with the windy gust
