Lips are moving
I can’t hear you
Heart is beating
I can’t feel you
so well guarded..
all smiles tucked away for another day..
Never to light my face again..
Not a dimple, not a twinkle
No not even a sliver
Least the house of cards come crashing down..
Fire away &
The ricochet will slam you hard..
The holes you feel and see are me disappearing
never to be seen again
the decay of you & me is all I see
A chapel built around the image of we..
No longer what we were once meant to be..
broken down – on my hands and knees..
Let’s set our hearts free
reach for me please..
crooked or straight
created from life..
past & present
join, intersect and form us..
binding us tight
What we hold near&dear
become our truths..
what we see, what we feel, what we believe to be real
Is how we deal..
it can grow us or
choices to be made..
It is ok and sometimes
it is right to live in the crookeds..
There will be no finding the straights..
For there to be a shadow
There has to be light
let your focus be on the bright..
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..
soothing words settling my soul
You inspire a beautiful burning hunger within..
What is it worth
if it lacks love..
What does it prosper if I can’t find my way out..
You gave me direction in my lost world –
raw, real, honest
One of a kind – planting me so firmly
I will sway every which way – yet never loose my footing
The more I understand the less I know..
I only know
You give all you have –
The very best
Because it is for us..
Burgeoning, flourishing, alive..
each moment budding into a better person..
suddenly aware of how much life is in each moment;
lived or wasted by choice..
the trajectory of the moments changing..
sending me flying into orbit as I discover the many shapes of me..
My heart – a geometry of sorts..
Lines curves and angles all intersecting..
an arrangement of the parts of my heart all stitched together into a beautiful symmetrical love..
battered, bruised and chipped apart
but we are solidly rooted
grounded in love..
misshapen – with an unspoken beauty-
an inward badge of hope, courage and strength..
We stand strong
like the statuesque oak tree that weathers the storms –
as it creaks and moans in its’ twists & turns..
we -too- bend to the mighty winds – growing in wisdom, connecting and forming to other branches – until we are so solid – no force can shake us..
standing firm in our twisted stance – we are beauty –
catching the eyes of passersby
sharing feelings of great expectations and desires of hope..
Im releasing you free
unearthing you from the ties that bind
though you don’t know you need to be
helping you see
giving you back you
You don’t need anyone to think for you anymore..
You are wonderfully, imperfectly made
The merry-go-round you live on is spiraling down
Let it out
Let it go
change up the sorrow you wear so well –
with inside joy
Let it stretch your face with laughter and
Set you free from
your light will shine in..
