Patient For Love

I search never again for the perfect mate.
One will come when the time is right.
I’ve matured enough to know
I am better off being patient with love.
Last time I rushed unto the love scene,
years of unhappiness followed.
I’ve learned my lesson
looking for love (in all the wrong places).

Disinfect With Tears

Cry a river, shed your tears
if it will help ease the pain
from the heartache knotting up your insides.
Something has ripped you apart,
powerful enough to shut you down temporarily.
Shed your tears to disinfect the hurt.
It’s for your own good.
Let the healing begin.
