jagged, rough, sharp, hard
piercing my heart
these pieces of shard..
let me soften your edges
smooth your soul
for my weary heart needs you whole..
running towards nowhere
I’m searching you out
to see through your eyes
to understand lies that hold you tight..
truth is hard
It’s all we have
let it mold you
as you lay with me..
feel yourself go
let the earth undo the bondage holding you down
come alive inside
as you give way to colliding with life…
breath it in
let it out
this is where you begin your end..
Been here before
done it all wrong
now you’re a song
beautiful melody lulling me strong..
pulling me in
there is no win
obstacle course that goes and goes
shaping me making me
the heart knows no bounds..
all of it turning me round and round
Spinning spun I hit the ground
Right back where I begun..
is there an exit
I choose to ignore
I’d rather hang in and live with a roar..
love is a gift so much to explore
Encircle my heart
I choose to stay
I’ll be your prey..
always so right
from the heart
to the fingertips
hands & Feet
in you I thrive..
a rare chance
a lifetime dance
how long will I want you
how long will we be
as long as the sea flows
there’s a you and me..
perfection in the storm
Intoxicated by love
until it’s been had..
springing fresh life
where we’ll begin..
becoming your poetry
undressing me slow
Layer by layer
as we go…
revealing the depths
of things unknown..
a wanton need
for you to read
all that I am..
exposing a spirit that can’t be tamed
a love that won’t be named..
hang in my wait time
as we discover anew
the many things we never knew..
mysterious and painful
it may be..
in watching us grow
it is food for our souls that will be whole..
the more i know
the further i go
sinking into that rabbit hole…
It owns me
setting apart my heart
Bleeding me through depleting what i knew..
Part of me dies as i come alive..
do what you please
cure me from the rot that eats my heart..
messy, chaotic, tangled and swept
adversely affected is all that I’ve kept..
Strange steps take us back
The cinder beneath guiding our feet
our minds go quiet
While our hearts riot..
of all that our mind had never heard..
i hope this illness
can heal us
from all we’ve come to be
You’ve chiseled me down
I’ll wear this madness of you
like a crown..
painful and pleasant regretful delight..
your aroma soothes my soul
such a pitiful sight..
my heart skips a beat with the aftertaste sweet..
in my haste
I failed to see
and the pretense of your need..
I bow out with grace
no hate on my face
leave me be I plead
to wallow in disgrace..
I harbor no ill will..
for still – be as it may
I will display
Only the good..
my home full of memories
a mixture of sad with a heart full of glad..
an ending that must come – though it leaves me undone..
I will never forget what it is like to be lost and free..
I will always know what it is like to be found and bound..
we went round & round
until my sounds were silenced
You never understood
My heart was your design
the markings of you permanent..
The ink has dried
yet on & on we go..
even though our song is no longer sung
you are all I know..
Who could blame me
I didn’t want just the flame
I wanted my turn to feel the burn and to
You collect the debts of my soul
You paint the pictures in my mind
You paint the pictures in my heart
You will follow me in my new start
Blood stained by the likes of you..
Blessed it be the mystery of love..
not to be solved -broken down or tamed..
Love has no name – it beats to its’ own game..
I lived for this endless wonder
Thrived in its’ unspeakable beauty
grew by the sounds of love
until I never knew this kind of blue that it possessed..
my world went silent
sharpest quiet cut me down until
my ears could no longer hear
My heart could no longer bear..
Yet I’ll always care for this lovely game of love that causes such despair..
Cursed it be the mystery of love..
Jealous of the night that wraps you in its’ intoxicating moments..
The moon that rocks you tender as you slumber..
envious of the sun that shakes you gently with its’ morning hello..
Oh that you could see my light and how it revolves around you
That my heart was still the beacon that lit you up..
You closed your eyes and it went black..
So I’ll grieve and
My heart will bleed
Yet I’m removing the shackles that bind me
I’ve done my time..
I won’t sulk anymore
Nor dwell on the memories
I’ve kissed them goodbye
No – I will not steep in sadness or misery like a bitter tea..
I choose to keep moving and let my heart be as free as the sea..
a part of your soul will always keep me whole..
