what is this?

what is this blindness that keeps
me from seeing the happy ending
right in front of me?
what is this longing that dissuades
the wanderlust of my spirit
from finding peace?
i am but a vessel of emotion,
filled with unquenchable yearning…
how you can love or trust a thing
so varied, so caught up in the wind,
that my heart, if it were to grow
wings, might fly away from this cage
and into eternity?

emptiness

swirling dark clouds filled
with emotional acid rain
raged within me
for what seemed like days…
it started as a thunder storm
and increased in strength
until my heart was lifted from my chest
and launched into the ether
of my mind…

i have looked, but still can’t find,
where the remnants of my heart
remain- tossed about on
love’s bitter wind, broken by the
storms within, i hold no hope
that any joy survived…
a shattering of love’s sweet grace
such emptiness that
now remains…

bleak warden

there is nothing left inside my chest
but a bitter emptiness that lines
the hours of my love with
caged bars to keep me safe-
and while I long, like a song bird,
to be free of my prison
i know that this self-imposed
pain in which my heart resides
is but a punishment of the self
for things that cannot be told
but rather lay hidden…
and I am lost to the ravages
of my own mind
a darkening that lingers within
my heart like a bleak warden

love

i love you with a million miles
of sunshine on my lips…
my hips, but fallen rainbows
for your heart to slide within-
my eyes, golden orbs of light,
to reflect your energy,
my heart an endless sea of green
begging you to swim…
i love you with a timeless fate
that links you back to me
a clock that stopped the day we met
and has since refused to beat…

rainbows

looking through the shattered lens
of a broken and fallen heart
i see prisms of color
where the light enters in
and i wonder at the joy rainbows engender…
even when sadness seems to have no end

dusk of eternity

these words that from my heart
long to drip into oblivion
are too dark to be remembered
and yet too full of love to let go

so i hover just on the edge of what
lies between heaven and hell
so that i might indulge in the beauty
of that love
and the pain of dark’s sweet blow

do no look for me, seated in-between,
the dusk of eternity,
for I will be waiting softly for love’s embrace
and the faith i find in the darkness i face

your ruse

I once thought that your fire
would burn within me like blaze,
un-contained,
and I longed to be scorched by that energy;

and now that the flames of your fire,
are but smoke in my hand,
i understand you were simply, a ruse,
to which my own power was surrendering

soul touching

You buried your face in my hair
and told me it smelled of leather;
your hands searched my fingers
and the lines of my waist
holding on as if this one time
was the last time
you would touch me…
and I decided to let you in
because the fire in your heart
burned an imprint of your energy
upon my soul

darkening sky

it was a 2am party raging
while you slowly took me outside
the grass was cool and i could
feel the dew on my back
you didn’t really give me reason
and besides, i was too high to understand,
though i closed my eyes for just a moment
and you were there, on top of me,
and before i could scream
the pain billowed out
and there was nothing I could see
but the darkening sky

abundant

I am the earth
my robes flow into endless fields of gold
and my heart carries songs of birds on the wind

the fire within me burns
with glory and contemplation
my unending source of power and love

I am abundant and give freely
of my healing streams; my valleys
dotted with the scent of flowers and truth

I am constant and unending
I have enough for all who love me
and more for those who cannot
