Ode to an Unsung Hero

Once so clumsy and shy
wandering lost with your toad
How unexpected for you to defy
Fate and Her heavy load
Over the years your courage grew strong;
Embarrassment turned to leadership
when a dark secret was unveiled
And so for you we’ll sing this song
For from her body did his Soul you rip
Your loyalty, strength and courage prevailed

Never again shall cheeks burn red
from harsh pranks of a bully
May your heart know not dread
Your intelligence and leadership finally free
from the klutz who loved only Trevor
For you, the unsung hero, we will sing
this song as powerful as the beast defeated
Once class dunce, the world now knows how clever
Neville Longbottom, our hero, can be - battling
for honor, now sung for like the hero he should be treated

Invisible Love

Your love was like the wind
I couldn’t see it but I felt it

Somedays you were subtle
Like the wind on days where
None of the leaves on the trees sway
But every once in a while, you could feel it lightly sweep across your face

Somedays your love was strong
And lifted me off my feet
Like how wind carries a kite
I felt like a kite
Your love surrounding me like a cold winter day
Causing me to feel invincible and free

But, on the days when we were not at our best
Your love was cold and icy
Almost like a thunderstorm
Piercing through every piece of me
Blowing away everything we had built together

Storms pass, as did this
You went back to being subtle

But I needed you
On the days where life got to hot and intolerable
Your love was there to keep me cool

Your love was like the wind
I may not have seen it but, I always knew that it was there

Trust

Trust is rare
Trust is a Delicacy
Trust is taken for granted
Trust is everything

Trust just can’t be given out like smiles, waves, or hugs
Trust can’t even be exchanged like money
Trust is deeper than that

Now just because trust can’t be handled like waves or money doesn’t mean it isn’t

People treat trust like a smile, wave or hug like it is something
That can be given to any person
They treat trust like its a frequent event
like trust is handed out on street corners

Or like money
They treat trust like it can be
Exchanged for goods
People will take trust and exploit it

That’s not how trust should be cared for
Trust is a connection
Not a smile not a wave it comes after that
It comes after the hand shake and the wave
After the exchange of names
Yes there is some trust in giving your name

But this trust is the deepest that can be given

This trust is special and can’t not be handled carelessly

This trust is the trust that you regret giving out
This trust is the trust you never thought you would share
the trust you didn’t even think you had to give
This trust comes after the name comes after everything
This trust is the trust you can’t
Take for granted
This trust is the trust that once you told that one person
You never want to hear it again
This trust it where your darkest secrets come out to play
This is where everything you have ever locked away in the dark
Can finally see the light
This trust is where everything that hurts can be relieved
This trust is where broken hearts can be mended
Where everything you have ever been afraid of can be overcame
This trust is where all the battles deep in your heart can be conquered
THis trust is where you can tell all and feel free

But do not
Make the mistake in giving this type of trust out to anyone.
Giving this trust out to anyone is a mistake
It Breaks hearts and ultimately ruins the trust
Trust is hard enough to give out
Trust is a treasure in disguise
And when giving it to anyone
They may not be able to see what it truly is and they may throw it away
They may Push it aside like it is nothing
So don’t give it out to anyone
Or you may never be able to give it out again.

I said before that this trust you regret giving out

That is because this trust is something you have ignored
It is something you felt you could never tell
Its been buried deep inside of you behind walls you have built for years
You never thought anyone could break them down
You never thought anyone would dig so deep
You never thought you would be the one to open yourself up and trust someone enough to let them know every single part of you
So, yes you will regret it as soon as it happens but you will never have felt so free & relieved
So cared for that someone would listen
That someone would care enough about you to adventure into your soul

This trust allows for that

So no you can not treat trust like money you can’t allow for it to be bought or exploited
You can’t treat it like a wave or a smile it shouldn’t be handed out like nothing

You treat trust like the treasure it is and allow it to be found by someone worthy
And when they finally make it
You give them the key.
And you allow yourself to finally be free.

Wait

There will be a person in my life
That’s will see past the things in me
I don’t like

There will be a person in life
That will see past everything in me that is broken, damaged and tainted

There will be a person in life that
will be able to find the real me
The deep me hidden behind all the Façades and fake happiness

There will be a person in life who will
Love me with every breath in their body
Who will take me as broken as I am
And mend me
Whose love will touch so deep down in my soul that it will bring the real me out for everyone to see

Until then I wait
I wait for this person
To set me free.
-H

I have a new love
A fresh love
A love that never has been given away
A love still in the original packaging
A love never unwrapped and never used
Not a love that’s been given away, used and returned
Taken out of the package and fondled with
But, a love that has yet to be broken or damaged by the last keeper
A love that doesn’t have past memories of pain and heartbreak
A love so pure, beautiful, new and innocent
A love that can give its all,
because it hasn’t yet had anything taken away.
