When Living is Dying

What is living when living is dying? 

I’m dying everyday 

I’m dying with every wake 

I’m dying with every breath 

I’m a dead man walking 

My body moves but my soul shuts down 

It dies within me 

My body moves  

Controlled by external forces 

Forces that move me  

To the right or left 

Without caring about 

How I feel 

What is living? 

When living is dying? 

Please put me out of my misery. 

  

They say as long as there’s life 

There’s hope 

But when hope is lost 

Can one be termed dead? 

  

I want to stop time 

Just so I don’t go through the same routine 

I wish the brakes of the bus 

Will push pause on my life 

Bringing it to a stop 

  

I want to live 

I want to smile 

I want to be happy I’m alive 

I want to live and not die 

But what is living 

When living is dying?

Undying Love

tree
I saw this tree on the wall yesterday on my way to church and I found it fascinating! Couldn’t help taking a picture. It’s creepy in a cute way 🙂 

I love you till death do us part 

We part for a moment as I watch over your apartment  

Up in Heaven 

Waiting for you 

Praying for you 

Nothing can come between us 

This bond we have 

Is definitely not James Bond 

Even though he is our favourite character – 

The bond we have is God 

He sees my heart 

He knows my thoughts 

He’s teaching me to love you more 

Despite my past hurts and bruises 

I will love you with everything I’ve got 

Death isn’t enough to separate us 

Even in the grave, we’ll lay side by side 

And in paradise

I’ll long to see your face 

As we sing hallelujah praise 

My undying love I give 

For that’s all I have to live 

Accept it my beloved 

Concentrated, undiluted 

Love, till it kills you
