broken bones

Raining in my heart

A cleansing of the old..

Renewing of a start

A beacon of hope has begun exactly where I stand..

it’s not in the big things

Nor the mountain tops high..

It’s the steady and

The slow in the things we don’t know..

the moments in between

The quiet unseen..

where the bones are scattered

The feet are crushed

And all the craziness is silenced and hushed..

The bones come together as the rain gently flows..

reshaping and transforming hope as it grows

I welcome the broken,

the scars and the pain-

my heart keeps growing

it’s never in vain..

I’m yesterday..

The darkness returns

cocooning me in its’ web of warmth and loneliness..

bringing you back

and all we knew

All we know of our highs and lows..

we’ve been kissed by the rain as it washed away our pain

We endured the fire as it branded our hearts..

another place

Another time

our love would have never been erased..

my arms hold on to the empty space

so hard to hold on to what’s gone

Harder to let it go..

I am yesterday

It is tomorrow..

Closing my eyes

I’ll feel it one more time

as I welcome in the dawn..

Only human..

I walk through the valley of the shadow of death

I welcome it in

desperate for rest

I run till i fall in search of it all..

The charm of the quiet

I’m under its’ spell

I scream till I yell

hungry for anyone to look at me and tell..

I may be alone

as my grasp gives way to the icy fingers on their own

no one there to warm my hand..

It’s ok – I understand..

The only way outward is inward

Don’t think me coward

for there isn’t a lie I’d rather know than the truth..

Best of me…

I want to drink the air

Live in the sunset

taste the water

emerge from it new

washed clean from all I’ve seen..

layer after layer I shed my skin

Looking for the freedom of where to begin

Only to find the same eyes pulling me back again..

What does it matter that I shed the outside gone-

my insides whirl round and round owning me strong..

I could choose to give in to all of my sins

Or reach out my hand to the one I know so well –

The best of me..

There you are standing tall

I exist because you chose to fall

Thank you for loving me through it all

Lego heart..

The heart breaks just a little.. the love runs deeper still

certain this chasm cannot be real..

I think I love you better now than all the years before..

Tattooed on my heart is

Intense, wonderful you..

every twist, every turn

I know you inside out..

I’ll trade my heart in exchange for yours- building each time –

a fresh new start..

my sweet imagination is what I choose

It somehow chases away the blues..

everything seems worse in black & white –

I’m gonna pick up the pieces and color them in

and when things go wrong – I’ll color again..

We’ll build and we’ll fall

but we will stand tall

This lego heart refuses to give in to it all..

Create with me – build with me a colorful home

and the pieces of our lego heart will have strong bones..

The heart breaks just a little – our colors run deep

We’re as bright as the sun

And dark as the night..

we are beauty expressed in our lover’s delight

Piece by piece

Our heart will take flight..

Believe in..

Trust..

it’s a simple word

yielding so much power..

It renders us fragile..

Misconstrued

Misunderstandings

first casualty of any relationship..

It’s a slippery slope..

so many meanings to each person..

Who defines what it is..

We all know what “trust” is supposed to mean..

But life gives it our own meaning –

shaping and forming us in ways not expected..

trust takes on a life of its’ own filling in the gaps and holes of our soul

So that we might feel whole..

We smile and carry on

talking ever so loudly with nothing to say

hoping it covers what’s hidden inside..

tethered and beaten

exhausted and worn

no more taping up all the torn

Still I will love

Still I will trust

For I am not a victim of all that life thrusts..

I’ll throw you my rope

there you’ll find hope

as we twist and turn on this slippery slope..

open your heart

Let me inside

we will be strong

for there’s nothing to hide..

Take me there..

Empty me whole

You will find me full

Brimming over with love..

Holding it tight—I am not afraid

I know who you are when I’m not looking

Better yet

Who I am when I’m with you reveals everything within and then some..

Take me there..

to that land of dreams wishes and hopes..

I want to know everything

leave nothing out..

let’s walk to this place where everything else is erased

Show me where life and love intersect

The place where our hearts connect..
