faith 신의

i keep a flower
in a bottle of aspirin
recall the beauty
cure the pain

i hide my heart
under a plate of armor
the less i feel
the less i break

exhale the past
breathe in
tomorrow
i fill my lungs

i
can't
let
go

i wait for dark
to battle with the demons
i know their strength
i know their names

i gave my word
to keep the bad things
from you
have faith in me

a
brave
broken
soul

i gave my word
to keep a light around you
have faith in me
i'll carry you home

I must admit that I am absolutely smitten with all things Kdrama!
Especially the time traveling drama 신의 ( Faith)  and Answer Me 1997
I stumbled across them this summer on Hulu and have been hooked ever since.
I find the Korean language beautiful and the actors stunningly attractive.
Though the stories may seem a bit cliched to some ( I can't get enough of that love triumphing over adversity stuff) they are filmed against the most gorgeous backdrops and in the case of Answer Me 1997, entirely relatable...just watch the first episode.

This poem was inspired by a tender scene in the drama 신의 ( Faith)

      I love "i wait for dark to battle the demons i know their strength i know their names"....it's how I write about my mental illness.

  5. This is very beautiful. I, too, am hooked on the theme of love triumphing - even though, in my case, it is still, apparently, hobbling along some byway trying to find me. Hee hee.

  12. The emotional fluency here is what grabs me--the feelings, that is, are easy to experience through the words--and you definitely make me want to check out the film version of your characters. Having faith in the broken is important.

  16. It's beautiful and sad at the same time, you wish the words to be true in the end and it makes you wonder how many things in life do we submit ourselves to faith on :)
