inhaling, swallowing , absorbing you
your taste ever so lethal..
I slip away
I fly high
I fall apart
The pain I hide in dissipates..
Do you know I’m gone
Do you feel it in your bones..
As they bury me eight feet deep..
with me goes the hurt &
the lies as i mix in with the dirt..
leaving me be
all my secrets
all my fears
have been set free..
Walk away and know –
I’m as happy as I’ll ever be as i go..
You are the only one don’t you know..
I will never forget what it is like to be lost and free..
I will always know what it is like to be found and bound..
we went round & round
until my sounds were silenced
You never understood
My heart was your design
the markings of you permanent..
The ink has dried
yet on & on we go..
even though our song is no longer sung
you are all I know..
Who could blame me
I didn’t want just the flame
I wanted my turn to feel the burn and to
You collect the debts of my soul
You paint the pictures in my mind
You paint the pictures in my heart
You will follow me in my new start
Blood stained by the likes of you..
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..
