what have we done..
How do we stop what has begun..
So bright on fire is our love..
So high on life we live above..
The highest highs lifting us up
Until our cup overflows with the sweetest of love..
something dark has taken control
sorrow has invaded into our soul
overshadowing the light we know..
I’m lost and rambling as I roam-
crying out is my love, as it desperately seeks to bring you home..
Desolate and all alone..
My heart soars and shatters simultaneously
certain I’ll find you –
yet, sure I’m on my own
With no place to call home..
deprived – abandoned
we are now dead..
I hope to survive with you in my head..
forget me not..
memory loss – if it isn’t you and I carrying the cross
the gap too wide to fill – my life silently still..
We sit between chaos and peace
a rare gift are the
moments we share to keep
the chaos spreading us here & there
Splitting us into pieces we can’t bear..
Yet the peace we share is beyond compare..
There is a deficit in my heart – one that shortchanges me if we are too far apart
you alone are my home..
Some share love that reads like a poem-
then there are those that play out like an episode
while others could fill a chapter..
Ours would be a book that continues through the ages
criss crossing all the stages as it gauges the wonder of us..
maybe I’m biased -maybe I’m skewed
But the chant of my heart determines the slant
There’s good, there’s bad and much to be had
But only the good remains..
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..
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..
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..
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..
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..
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..
