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..
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..
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..
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..
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
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..
it’s a simple word
yielding so much power..
It renders us fragile..
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..
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
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..
