A Lost Thought

My life is a constant,

but I choose the variables.

The reactions of what life

throws in my direction,

are based on my choices

of what I decide to give

back to a world that

doesn’t know the meaning

of a slow and steady race,

but throws curve after curve,

until I lay breathing

in a corner of truth,

determining not whether

I will stand again but

rather which foot will go first,

until I stand tall enough to see

over a city of my hurdles,

that I am too strong,

to have a moment without

meaning. With no meaning,

we give up the control we

gain when we know the

weight of what we are given,

but have the knowledge to hold it

preciously in our hands, like a

feather that just might blow away.

My flower 

After all this time
My chest tightens with joy
As I go breathless.

Suffocating

Why did God create them?

To make me cry at night.

The world is covered in a shadow,

And they crawl inside my heart.

Tingling in my fingers,

but no sparkle in my eye.

It’s a wonder that they are here,

in a place that is so sacred.

Tell me to hold back,

I already can’t breathe.

Black vines wrapped up in my soul,

Of all my worries and your fears.

Lost and Found

It is all said and done
Silence sitting restless
Broken tears unnerving
I sit in total patience
Waiting—
For my heart to close
The pain to be lost
In a mountain of treasures
With the last stitch made
I can move
Silence dancing around me
Anticipation with the audible rumble
Building within the rubble of my life
Patience turned into determination
SCREAM—
Chaos thrown into the silence
As the world says welcome back.

Hidden Language of the Soul

People watched in awe

As they flew through

The air, smiles on their

Faces, defying Newton’s

Law till they came down

On the tips of their toes,

As if angels dancing upon

Clouds above, illuminating

With serenity, Moving as

Though the joy will cease

To exist, soul-stirring rhythms

Manipulating their bodies into

A perfect sync, until the music

Ended and they harmonized back

Into the human world, only

Needing the reminder of the

Music running through their

Veins, to know how they are

Truly connected.

Coming to Terms

Heard a song today on the radio
It sang
What’s the greatest chapter in your book?
Are there pages where it hurts to look?”
I gave the thought a ponder or two
Diaries stuffed in the bottom of drawers
Keeping all those secrets moments
Making me cringe at just the thought
Now take all those cringing moments
They might stack up to the ceiling
But I have to give them thanks
If it wasn’t for all those scribbled journals
 I wouldn’t be writing this.

Let’s Try This

Eleven on the dot
Words start flowing
Not a minute earlier
The lightbulb turns on
Time to come out and play

 

Thoughts start streaming
Try to gain some perspective
Have them go where
No woman has gone before
As if I have some control

 

But that is a laughable dream
When the words flow, they flow
They have the true control
So when they keep pointing me
In the same direction, I must apologize

 

I tried but it’s another one about you.
