the sounds hold me tight..
their words – in the still of night are reassuring-
Letting me know I’m not alone..
No madness here
in the dark..
Within the recesses of my mind
my world is perfect..
You wrangle to pull me free because you cannot see the beauty of my bedlam..
People milling about –
always in a frenzied state.. it’s you who live in mayhem..
while my feet shuffle me peacefully to my unknown..
Cars whiz past me heading to their destinations..
All of you living lies,
all of you lost in the rat race – the human race..
my eyes shade me from the harm you mean for me
My mind – my protector covers me..
All the while you tell me it is madness to fall into the arms of the street..
I have no time to waste – trying to arrive to my place
I will celebrate the pandemonium my own way..
soothing words settling my soul
You inspire a beautiful burning hunger within..
What is it worth
if it lacks love..
What does it prosper if I can’t find my way out..
You gave me direction in my lost world –
raw, real, honest
One of a kind – planting me so firmly
I will sway every which way – yet never loose my footing
The more I understand the less I know..
I only know
You give all you have –
The very best
Because it is for us..
Burgeoning, flourishing, alive..
each moment budding into a better person..
suddenly aware of how much life is in each moment;
lived or wasted by choice..
the trajectory of the moments changing..
sending me flying into orbit as I discover the many shapes of me..
My heart – a geometry of sorts..
Lines curves and angles all intersecting..
an arrangement of the parts of my heart all stitched together into a beautiful symmetrical love..
Impossible intangible invisible..
real as can be
Something is about to give
Push the pedal down
let it take you
It’s unknown how hard the push will be
Or where you will be when you are set free
You have nothing left to lose..
Broken fractured souls
are healed in the freedom
of giving into the mystery..
scream until the light breaks through
Until the streaks of sunlight make you glow..
You aren’t the only fractured soul waiting to be made whole
Your lowest low will rise you to the highest highs..
Hold on tight
The other side is sweeter than sweet
And will fill you with delight..
With a grateful heart
may wise words slip from my mouth
left to inspire – desire and encourage life
Words.. lasting, ingrained, haunting..
they take on a life of their own
Only to be buried but never forgotten..
expressions that fill you or kill you..
for the seeds are sprinkled
and syllables take root
wrapping around your mind finding their way to the heart & soul..
Tread gently – speak softly –
create the quiet, so you can hear the impact you leave behind
watch the indelible etchings you carve into their heart..
Beauty marks that cannot be removed..
