given what we get

~given what we get~

i asked the universe for a sign
it was given…
though my heart is heavy with sadness
I cannot now go back and ask for something different

…we are given what we get…

Life is suffering and the heart must be strong
enough to live with separation
and pain of loneliness
inorder to fully embrace light

…we must first travel through darkness…

i accept my fate, as resigned as i can be
to this pain, which will walk as my friend
for a time
hope lingers no more for me

de void

I search for you in the sky
But you’re not there
The heavens are empty of you
And my heart no longer flutters

…Where have you taken your light?…

Within me is darkness and despair
The longing is now covered in pain
And emptiness roams my halls


ancient energy

~ancient energy~

Ancient energy links my soul
To memories long erased
By time
….Footprints only found now
Within the heart

I see Isis shining in the distance
Holding the unbreakable bond
Like a scepter
In her glowing hand
…Reminding me

Promises never forgotten;
Words yet unspoken…
Sit Heavy and true..
Upon my mind
Like incense

Linking me back to you.

the girl in the stars

there once was a girl who reached for the stars.. she tried and tried to touch them…
alone, in the darkness, she would speak to them, whispering sweet nothings
of how it will be when she comes home

everyday the sun would rise, the birds would sing…the light of day overtaking…
and sadness would fill her heart, all she desired was to be with them
to feel their light upon her

one day when she could take no more of their leaving… she devised a plan
to fly up up up to them… her stars… and hang onto them with all her strength
how wonderful she thought, to be with them forever

So she built beautiful wings of gold, and gossamer flowers glowing
she told them not to worry, she would be coming soon
upon wings of starlight flowing

when the time was right, she dressed her arms in wings
and took off from a start… she ran and ran until she caught the air
leaving all she knew below her

The darkness to which she flew was cold… the lonliness of height
through countless stars she flew alone…. an isolating flight
no star could she call her home- no star claimed as her own

why? thought she am i so alone, when i am soaring through starlight?
Tears of pain and anger flowing, flowing like an asteroid behind her…
why?, she cried… why? i thought I was going home

just at her bleakest moment though.. when her skin was chilled to the bone
the sun returned to the sky and warmed her…
his light like a old friend; a shadow of her former self

sometimes, my sweet, you must understand the nature of stars, he told her
to be starlight, you must shine your light in darkness… in cold…
alone…for others to see… this is a lonely task you’ve undertaken…

but when you learn to light your own way, and warm your own self… you become a beacon… a shining star
so stand firm, my sweet girl, you are exactly where you are…

…de light…

waves of energy reached my soul
and vibrated
as if the oceans themselves opened up
and i gushed
covering the ground in salty water

I sent swirling lights of energy
vibrating back
spinning around and around
until it reached
the stars and vanished within them

an ancient fog

~an ancient fog~

The untamed beat of your drum within me
Is deafening
I can hear none else but you
And I can feel your breathe beside me
Your voice whispering to me
Your hand holding mine so tenderly

And I long for peace
For relief from the noise inside me
That vexes my soul

…and yet I long for you more…

You’re a deep and ancient fog
Alas! That I would get lost in you!
Spend all my days wandering
Following the sounds of your voice
The smell of your skin
Even that I cannot find you
I would be happier yet to remain
Merely within your haze


love is like poison when it hurts your heart
each beat driving the pain further into your body
each breathe, labored and raw
each moment, an eternity of why
the desire to claw out of skin to find relief
is all the mind can cling to
there is nothing… to relieve the uneasy pain of loneliness
of some part of you missing…
the other half of you… gone…
when all is forsaken… what can soothe the soul?
