such sadness has invaded my soul..
I cannot see through it
I’m no longer whole
I am numb
my mind has come undone..
I no longer feel
it’s all so unreal..
someone wake me
Shake me from this grief that has caused me to lose myself..
feet moving, arms hugging,
eyes wearily watching life that somehow keeps living..
sounds I don’t recognize escaping my mouth..
It is in the real – the now
So afraid of forgetting you
and somehow so afraid I’ll never be able to let you go..
Words we spoke
Plans we made..
a bonding of our hearts
words filling me with hope..
I’ll continue to dream
I’ll never let them die
I’ll release them to the sky..
I can love you and still say goodbye..
snapshots of my heart..
a growing collage of us created from the start..
we grew like a pixel – multiplying over and over until the image of our love covered us whole..
Reel by reel
You play me..
unaware how you slay me..
3D explosions in my heart right from the start..
Can’t escape the moonlight of your eyes
Your reflection is everywhere
You burn bright within
I’ll give in
I’ll step out of the darkness and let you light the way..
we may be amateurs at this
but the impression you left on my heart snapshot me back to life
we have created quite a collection of where we’ve been and what’s to be..
I’m so glad to be part of this story..
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..
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..
Lost in our dance
never find your way out..
Let it be me
Only me you see
As you move your feet to our beat..
that rhythm of pure sweet..
Love only me in the sea of hopes & dreams where nothing is like it seems..
For my sway will stay –
no matter if you’re sitting & I’m standing or
You’re running & I’m walking
The picture in your mind and the soundtrack of my heart create the perfect harmony..
and I am bending, stretching and syncing to your every move..
Lost in the rhythm & blues of our rock’n’roll..
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..
full of raw emotion
beautiful, full of life
And terrifying in its’ unknown..
love beyond your sensibilities
immerse yourself into the moments
they are yours to live
Put your hand in the Flame
Let it set you on fire
exist in untempered love
Go as high as the flame will burn before it dies out..
will rekindle time after time
good or bad
Happy or sad
shred the moments
Love in itself is both intense and beautiful
Better to be skinned alive
than to never know
a love not lessened by anything..
