REMEDY

I need a remedy, I need a solution

I need peace of mind and a resolution

 

Here I am again with a pen in hand & my scrapbook

Wondering if the more you know

The more you 2nd guess yourself, the more shook

The older you get, the more you do look

Understanding things more, a better outlook

 

They say look and you will find

Ask and you will get

But you won’t like what you find

You don’t appreciate what you’re given

The more you look the ugly inside

The more you get, the more you need forgiving

 

I’m sorry, sorry for the hurt I’ve caused for the shame you feel

Sorry for the countless lies told, for not truly being me

I’ll do it my way, its all for you

You’ll be all that I need my life will revolve around you

 

I’ll cherish every moment that we share

Feel empty when you’re not there

I’ll feel your hurt & pain

Crazy in love, friends will think I’m insane

 

But it won’t matter, as long as we’re on the same page

Like two peas in a pod, I’ll stick by you forever, this I envisage

It’s just you & me against the world

When those around us turn cold

Just the two of us surviving the ups & downs

Only you I want to hold

 

No-one else comes close to the way I feel for you, it’s real

I’ll love you through thick & thin

Grey hairs & wrinkles, I’m the real deal

 

I’ll be everything you need, your healer, your provider

Don’t need a medicine degree

I’ll be your lover, your natural herb supplier

 

In need of a great woman to be my backbone

Kick up the backside from time to time

Intelligence, passionate, humble tone

Able to be fierce & hot like fire

Loving you won’t feel like a crime because you’re my true desire.

    Fascinating...very. The image with it is likewise rather intriguing...what is it of...a moment in alchemy? The resolution to be true and love forever are very noble...made me wonder if 'twas written to the mother of your unborn son? I enjoyed it.....how you drew the picture of loving her, very nice, and sweet....fascinating in the resolve...I assumed it was something that just happened. But it's a good point you make about the longer you live the uglier it looks ('specially the better you know yourself!) and the more you need forgiveness...funny how we thought we didn't need it earlier. Isn't seeking and asking to do with God's salvation?

    Thank you very much or the comment, you seem to hit the nail on the head every time!! The image is of "The Explosion in the Alchemist’s Laboratory"
    Justus Gustav van Bentum (Leiden 1670–1727)
    Holland, 17th or 18th century
    Oil on canvas
    I found it fitting as the poem is about me searching for a remedy, a soloution. But we dont always get it correct the first time and the results can be explosive as well as hurt the ones that love us. Sometimes we look for guidance from the wrong places/ wrong people forgetting the best guidance & remedy is found through God.
    Glad you liked it.
