Hazy smoke danced around her

as if to grab her attention..

as it slowly faded into the air

She looked around wishing to care..

The sun-kissed faces

laughing and sharing of the different places..

she hid within the walls of her confined spaces..

voices asking who she was, why she was

until she could no longer take it..

shielding her eyes

Holding her breath, begging for rest

from the demons she felt within her chest..

A light mist surrounded her

And in her mental confusion

she welcomed the haze as her safe place

evaporating there for the rest of her days..

Beyond the sad…

the sad is shifting

the good is lifting

I see with the heart of my eyes

It’s no mystery you somehow missed me..

on an unmarked day

At an unknown hour

my heart came alive..

full, wild

and thriving

with all the commotion going on inside..

Time has put space between the sad and the good – as it should..

I miss you once upon another time..

you danced my heart full of sunshine and kisses sweet

I’m moving beyond the sad

glad I lived it well

my heart is where it was to be

It is beautiful and free..

a Blessing and a Curse..

Blessed it be the mystery of love..

not to be solved -broken down or tamed..

Love has no name – it beats to its’ own game..

I lived for this endless wonder

Thrived in its’ unspeakable beauty

grew by the sounds of love

until I never knew this kind of blue that it possessed..

my world went silent

sharpest quiet cut me down until

my ears could no longer hear

My heart could no longer bear..

Yet I’ll always care for this lovely game of love that causes such despair..

Cursed it be the mystery of love..

Free as the sea..

Jealous of the night that wraps you in its’ intoxicating moments..

The moon that rocks you tender as you slumber..

envious of the sun that shakes you gently with its’ morning hello..

Oh that you could see my light and how it revolves around you

That my heart was still the beacon that lit you up..

You closed your eyes and it went black..

So I’ll grieve and

My heart will bleed

Yet I’m removing the shackles that bind me

I’ve done my time..

I won’t sulk anymore

Nor dwell on the memories

I’ve kissed them goodbye

No – I will not steep in sadness or misery like a bitter tea..

I choose to keep moving and let my heart be as free as the sea..

a part of your soul will always keep me whole..

Unlimited beauty

a tiny sprout

That’s all it took

to rejuvenate her beauty and make her whole

springing her back to things untold..

a seed planted

Growing like a weed

that changed something frightful into something beautiful..

You moved about her heart without getting trampled or torn apart..

changing the backdrop of her ugly

you set her free from the limits of her life..

The iron bars melted from her soul

She sees beauty everywhere she goes

The glimmer on the trees

Dew on the grass

Sun kissed morning skies that disappear so fast

And the hope that has closed the door to her ill-fated past..

There’s not a word for everything you’ve done but she needs you

like the flowers will always need the sun..
