CalmI have burned through time like an ember...
It always seems as though I am waiting
Inner wars that fall through my mind like a waterfall
And I have learned what many may know but have never understood
You never know what you have, until it has left you...
The stillness can be calming
Buried in quiet
I am more awake than anything
I rise every morning
And the battle rages
But... I am always calm.
Wreaths of lightI would rather that life let me be
To live far in my own tragedy
Lights fade around me
And I may be only a spark between who I am
And who I am meant to be
I surround myself in thoughts that dwell within the only place I can be free
Being alone isn't always a choice
Even when it is preferred, only at times
There are days when I feel I am alive
And sometimes that is enough...but only barely.
The light in me can shine brighter than the sun, but as soft as the wind...
If only there were those who could actually see it.
UntitledI stand facing a golden field
Baring everything in calm
My watch ticks as I wake
Nothing but calm
I breathe in
To rise to a dream that I wish would never end...
Where I bare everything
I am light
I dream heart beats
And sudden bursts
Streams that rise and fall along a treaded path
I dream to see beyond
I dream to feel
And to hope on such slight strings
Falling in and out
And rising through air like the wisp of a spider web...
Oh how I would seek your eyes
And how they would meet mine
To share that warmth just in knowing that we would share that sudden understanding
Beyond this life, beyond limitations, with warm skin and soft eyes...
Lightness beneath the shadowsI belong to an inner world where the light seeps through my veins
But so do the shadows that sadness brings
We are all to each other what we make
And everything I see, every light you bring
UntitledThere are times when love will spread like wild fire
And burn until there is nothing left but embers hidden beneath ash
And it is just as I am
A star waiting for its time
StarlightSometimes the only way I can breathe
Is in starlight...
Falling emotions into thoughts felt through the stillness which evening brings
I live in a pretty shell that withholds so much
And all that I feel in anything
Is beyond it.
