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 inherited your shadow..
The over lay
Of you was all I knew..
A reflected image of your love shone through
guiding the way..
each footstep pushing me on
making me strong
The hurried ones, the slow ones, the skipping ones, the stalled ones..
a shadow of love that covered me well..
I was brave enough to follow along
l will shadow dance with you into obscurity..
You are the hand that holds the pen to that far away land
our hearts dictating the plans..
stretched so tight I no longer feel..
the impenetrable wall
The divide growing
as our hearts are sowing new paths..
Opposition to one another
Fighting for space in the canvas of your heart..
Until I say no more
no more to saying yes
Freeing myself to choose..
Only when I’m free
Can i keep the monsters at bay
The ones I can’t see that choke the air out of me..
I knew this day might come
though I knew you were my truth..
there’s no comfort in waiting for the last beat of our hearts
Let it die before that starts..
I need you to look out and see
you will always be a part 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
our melody hit every note
fine tuning its’ way for the perfect pitch that became you & I..
you sing through me
Vibrating my heart strings
until they hum a love so sweet
I hear it in my heartbeat
traipsing through my veins
wafting throughout my being
humming your way to my heart until it became our home
our love is like a soldier
Loyal to us – it rights all wrongs
I learned a love song
my heart will never be empty
for your melody always plays softly throughout me..
It mattered not..
the essence of you and i weaved a soul of love unknown..
the joy boundless
sealing us tight..
It won’t matter what is written or the
words spoken out loud but never given..
we lived it freely
We lived it real
until time stood still..
I couldn’t stay, I can’t pretend
My heart went silent..
I lost my way when I couldn’t feel the beating of my mainstay..
So now I lay me down to sleep
for my soul needs yours in order to keep..
I hope they know
I pray they see
Though life’s unfair
we’ll find our way in every sphere..
Breath upon my bones
Your heart is my home
I don’t walk alone..
we meld into each other
forming a love with a shape of its’ own..
like the beauty created by the drippings of candle wax..
each time it’s lit up, we set the sky on fire
absorbed into a sphere of our own..
I reopen you time and again..
caught up in our space i come undone
Blinded as if I’m touched by the sun..
colors so vibrant – woven tightly as one
Like a rainbow that has only just begun..
You color my heart
You warm my soul
feeling every shade you’ve splashed from the start
my heart is on fire
my soul is aflame
Forever and ever it will paint your name..
