Fortunes Series 2 :Dear God

The universe has a broken sense of humor

I know this as a fact,not as just another rumor

Because though I had love on the brain like a tumor

She was the right person in the wrong time and place

I never even had time to state and plead my case

She was gone with the wind and I could not chase

Her. How could I? I had to pull myself together and try to brace

Myself to accept the fact that Maybe this wasn’t my race

I don’t believe in destiny but I believe in saying grace

So I did the best I could, I talked to the good lord up above

And said dear lord save her for me ,she’s the one

She’s what I need after all is said and done

I need you to Protect her from heartbreak and love gone sour

Or at least show her that I can be her strong tower

And as I think of her every second of every hour

I hope you keep her as beautiful as an exotic flower

And her smile as wide as the ocean

I pray she realises that for her I’ll swim across the ocean

Even though I can’t swim & I’d probably drown at the shore

Dear lord I hope she is part of what you’ve got in store

I hope you bring us together because no man can put asunder

Even though I know many will try to put us under

As you set things in motion for our paths to cross 

I am grateful in advance because you’re my source

Amen

Self-destruct

I’ve been asked why I  write about love and its matters

Yet I am still a viable bachelor and that’s all that matters

If I’m the hero of my own story why can’t I get the girl?

My poems have ‘lines’ and all I have to do is aim and hurl

Them at my desired target and let the chips fall where they will

It may be harder than pushing a boulder up the hill

But I’ve been in love a dozen times over

And that always ends when the night is over

And my face is in my hands,more regret than shame

Wall of shame for me,for the girl only a walk of shame

Maybe to me it’s all the same,

Ping-pong, chess,love,it’s all a game

So I play peekaboo with her delicate feelings

Knowing she will hate me once she sees the beginnings

Of the end

She will become a lion that I can’t fend

Off 

So I scoff

this is not love,this is suicide

This is a poison killing me on the inside

And I’m not even Juliet, I’m Romeo

But then again like him I die by my own sword

Premature trip to go see my lord
Will God forgive me for all the hearts I’ve broken

will I forgive him for making me soft spoken

Sins of the past racing at me trying to catch up

The wrongs I’ve done are a tear I can’t patch up

They say God collects the tears of women and in that I’m a believer

I know I’m going to drown for the women I made cry me a river

The wrath I’ve attracted is doing push ups waiting for me

Self destruct,because it is I who brought it upon me
