Loves me. Loves me not.

It’s like I met myself Like I knew me for the first time Like I’d been there before Deja vu of sensing there’s more. That moment We admired the flowers Underneath dancing spring showers Every petal bequeathed our love The garden of rising above. Perfect formation Fully blossomed elation Turned…

Bridges

Bridges to silence Worlds all alone Faces of ash Memories of stone Bridges to beauty O’r landscapes reflect Flowers and scenes We long to perfect Bridges to pain Journies prolonged Limping to graveside Steadied by song Bridges to you Arched over love Safely enveloped Peace like a dove Spread the…

Cornfield days

The only time Time stopped in its tracks When you gave me meaning My subconscious back I’ll always want to revisit forever The loop of consciousness Ever present pleasure. I dont want to live anymore It’s better beyond the shore Up above the patterned maze Ordered cornfield days But down…

High tide

Walking the edge of the surf Safe from the crashing Where water gently meets earth You taught me to feel Ground beneath my feet To see the horizon Beyond defeat. Never so close To my heart Did love touch Sound of the waves At a distance from shore You reminded…

Too distant

So many memories Run through these walls No ghosts of you Walk down the halls So I’m happy To leave it all behind Now I know what it means That love is blind. So much beauty Exists in the pain The days of the lonely Rejected disdain Songs that carried…

It just happened

No one taught me to love It just happened There in the schoolyard ground On top the merry go round Pig tails flyin around Next day hide n go seek The moment I was found All the books in the world Best teachers in town She was the smartest Me…

No idea

You have no idea How you rescued me From the deepest sea Created mystery Beyond my misery You have no idea The power of your imagination To turn sorrow into elation No coincidence Forget cold common sense You have no idea Your worth The weight Of your birth How you…

Out of the clouds

I won’t come down Out of the clouds Where beauty and brilliance Your daring love Surrounds Meet me there When I take my last breath And float on ethereal forms of life after death. I wish I could condense your light Send sunshine out to flight Soaring with you The…

Shaky Reels

One more year Added to forever Unfolding treasures Shaky reel of pleasure You’ve taken your chance Enjoyed the slow dance So never regret one minute Races without a finish Some memories last Longer than a lifetime The moment we find Our soul we’d lost to pain And live to remember…

Now waits for no one

I love you Like I want to love myself And see me Above all else As special The one I always Come back to No matter what I’ve done Because I know There was a reason And this distance Is only a season I forgive our humanity Untimely insanity Envision…

Imitative Love Erased

I was born to feel your love You made me remember Radiant childlike innocence Inside my soul You rendered Nothing but to ponder Winter roses blooming Your gentle touch assuming Words could reach the deepest parts That everyday had missed Replacing numb existence With chilling tempered bliss. I’ll never forget…

Disaster denied

Relief will come On the heels Of the morning Sunrise warm Horizon adorning Look out high As far as you can Recall the memories Of mother when She took you safe Up in her arms Steady love, silenced alarm. Then close your eyes Rest your head I’ll stroke you Calm…

Artificial Love

We’re not promised tomorrow What makes us real? Time will soon be gone and All we thought to feel. I know there’s a lane In which I’m programmed to exist But what’s not artificial Insists I still resist. No one can tell me It’s wrong to express Climb out of…

Nowhere but with you

For all you want to see Where you wish to go Who you long to hold And love you hope to know I’ll paint the riverbank With scenes To draw you in Where sun and sultry flowers Awaken life again. Row me to the middle Of nowhere But with you…

Spattered

Sometimes things seem so sullenly dreadful. Other times, life is looking up and no one can do me any harm. There’s this place, a moment where all pleasant things are condensed, in one place, feeling irrepressibly good. It’s a gift and a curse. You. And all that reminds me there’s…

Melting Dreams

God knew I was blind though.  “I once was blind but now I see” kind of dramatic blindness.  Sometimes we pray to be free but we’ve no vision for the future.  Like spoiled children, we throw ourselves down to the ground, kicking and screaming while our parent lovingly tries to…

Distractions

It is a law of nature that when you start to be fully you, distractions will start coming out of the woods to convince you that you’re not really that person.  You’re not the type to finish anything.  You’re not unique enough to matter.  You’ll never make a living doing…

Orbit of Approval

Money does not define your self-worth.  The whole system is now designed to trick us into never thinking on our own because we’re afraid of losing our place in the orbit of others’ approval.  Potential consequences of losing this delusional approval, might be never fitting in enough to earn a…

Create before you validate

If we truly follow our dreams without looking for validation before every single step we take, we’ll get a lot further, a lot faster.  Remember the voice that says, “you can’t?”  It is true.  You can’t — expect that anyone else will see what you see before it’s breathed into…

You can. You can’t.

When something finally clicks, and you see the light, when you understand that you can’t trust others until you trust that you alone know the way – you begin to look back on yourself as a stranger.  Who was this person that clamored for the approval of others, that couldn’t…

Victim of Approval

There are two roads to take if you haven’t yet learned to accept yourself and that is the path of victim or victimizer.  I always played the part of victim because I’d been conditioned toward passivity.  I was afraid to take ownership of who I was and those who victimized…
