His Condition

Death is our best friend
You don't understand
I'd love you until the end
You can't help the fact
That a parasite loves to crawl
Inside your veins
And take over everything
That is leading to your brain

And you suffer
Hurting like no other
Rejected from the world
Because of ignorance
And misconceptions
Also, the media has portrayed
Half of the deceptions
I want to kill them all
For messing with people's perceptions

You are unique just like a butterfly
When you speak I believe that
We can touch the sky

Your laugh and the joy you take
From little things
Is what helps me realize
What happiness God really brings

I want to heal you
But I'm nervous only because I
See what really lies
Beneath both of your brown eyes
At night you do cry
Angrily and bitterly
Wondering why you had to
Be the one doctors experiment
With a condition that is perminent

I won't judge you
I'll treat you like you are human
Like I am suppose to
I'll treat you like you have feelings
And obstacles you have to go through
I will treat you like you're equal
Although I have the advantage
But what if one day I'm contacted
And I don't know how to manage
Will you support me
Or just leave me and abuse me like the others
Or will you see that I am human
And one day I'll be a mother?

Maybe I'm thinking too hard
My feelings got the best of me
You are my love and my best friend
For the rest of this eternity
Just bare with me, I'm fighting
For the both of us you know
I am not like other people
Who throw the towel when things get low

I will hold you and I'll kiss you
Like I would another man
I just hope you understand....

Because in society
If we could pick our genes
We all would look like europeans
Where American magazines
Neglect beauty of caribbeans

So with all the pressure
You face to exist
Yet, I'm blessed that I'm the one you miss
So love please don't get discouraged
I'm here for you, I promise

Lanelle Taylor Claim this poet

My name is Lanelle Taylor , I love to write. Usually because I'm a peacemaker outside of writing and do not express myself much especially if I think that it wouldn't make the situation any better, so I would write to escape. I apologize if my poetry is long, repetitive, or doesn't make any sense what so ever. It's more emotional than factual. ♥ Thank you for taking time out of your life to read and criticize. I try my best to say thank you to all the comments. Love all you poets out there, keep up the good work.Live . Love . Laugh . more…
