This is sadly a common experience :(

Defenses block my message through 

My meanings misconstrue d

To serve your purpose & need for validation

 

Unheard and unseen these many days; years in fact

 I look back to the emptiness

Existing, but not living 

Who am I to you anyway? 

Why do we stay?

 Looking for purpose in the day to day


 

I've become a mighty shield

The protector of innocence not yet lost

Measuring the cost

Knowing the need out weighs the reward that waits beyond


 

Treading water through the colors of my existence

I run to stay near, without fear

But with conviction, my plan becomes clear

 


Alone in our togetherness

Avoiding the trespasses of being the infidel

I remain true ; though blue 

Knowing what could be, with these words I plea for change 

Acknowledgement of my worth and value to your life

My wife

 
 

Can't you see me? 

I am here, opening my heart to you 

Giving it every shot, a chance for betterment

 


So spent and tired 

Needing some ease

My plea to you is to hear me, see me,

Feel, love and acknowledge me

 

I am here and worthy of your affections

Willing to give you all I have

Here's our chance – Take it please

 

Let's make it be more that it's been

 Can't you love me just a little more? 

Knowing the score is meaningless otherwise

 

No blame or shame, just some movement please

One way or the other

Need to know.  Or go

Can't you see my need as a man? 

I know you can, but will you?

The Aquarius Key, A Novel of the Occult by Keith Rowley

For master magician Aaron Steen, one obstacle to ultimate power remains. For his victims there is only despair and madness. The rites of blood begin… ..
