Love and Pain, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Love and PainLove and Pain, Edvard Munch (1895)

Love and Pain

The love I feel is causing me much pain
Thinking of you renders me deathly weak
Confusion of mind unable to speak
An ache of heart unable to contain
Such a desire unable to restrain
These dreaded ailments make my future bleak
What unknown treatment must I quickly seek
For I’m on the verge of being insane

There is no promise love to be a joy
Giving your heart means it’s no longer yours
And your thoughts never to be rational
Nor a sure quick-fix that you may deploy
To erase the worst of love’s aching sores
You’re doomed as resisting love is futile

The Secret, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

The SecretThe Secret, Dorothy Landau (n.d.)

The Secret

Sitting silently, just beyond her touch.
All to be heard is, the whispering wind.
O to say to her “I love you so much,
Your heart over mine shall be ever pinned!”

We would meet in, the shade of this oak tree,
To behold feelings, yet to be explained.
With each touch, helped to solve this mystery
Finally understood, our hearts were linked!

On that special day, ivy we did plant,
That to each other, we shall ever cling
Love so deep, neither ever to recant
Love so sweet, it makes all the angels sing

Pain I feel unable to kiss your nape
But from this place there will be no escape

Pain, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Pain

Come closer as I gravely need you near
To calm the hurting from my inner pain
Look into my wet eyes and see my fear
In solitude have tried to make it clear
But on the verge of becoming insane
Come closer as I gravely need you near
Pain coming from the anger that I hear
Rapidly it travels within my brain
Look into my wet eyes and see my fear
Each devil poking my eyes with its spear
Leaving on each cheek a sore salty stain
Come closer, as I gravely need you near
Yet nearer, speak softly into my ear
So that my good health I may soon regain
Look into my wet eyes and see my fear
Help, please so the devils will disappear
Say, by my side will forever remain
Come closer as I gravely need you near
Look into my wet eyes and see my fear

Deluge, Robert A Sieczkiewicz

Rising waters come not to their surprise.
Ungodly behaviors antagonize,
He who loves them and who He did advise,
Their very actions He shall penalize.

Within His power did save but a few,
Who faithfully abided by His rule,
So once again we could begin anew.
Now afresh His wishes we overrule.

Once more old behaviors we restore,
Even after He sent His only Son.
Do we dare to ask He do even more?
Do we dare say that the Devil has won?

Can still accept the baby if we choose,
It still remains with us to win or lose.

 

Answers to Many Whys, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Answers to Many Whys, Robert A Sieczkiewicz

Here weeping upon this most hallowed ground,
Staring at the body nailed to the tree.
Searching for words, but making not a sound.
He did it to set my wicked soul free.

Horrible pain, as He is not yet dead.
Wearing a crown of thorns upon his head.
His simple garments on the ground are spread.
Many cast lots for them, while others fled.

Lifted His head to heavenly Father,
Slowly bloodied chin fell onto His chest,
Nev’r a single sound of willful anger.
Earth suddenly shook, He is now at rest.

Now three days I must wait for Him to rise,
Then He will give answers to many whys.
