New Beginnings

A time to move,
Start anew.
Never thought it would be,
Without you.

But never mind,
We can’t rewind.
Time will keep doing it’s thing.
Finding the power inside,
Is such a beautiful ride.

Days keep on slipping,
Behind me evermore.
Every day I miss you,
Just a little… less.

Never forget the good times,
And don’t get stuck looking back.
The time is now and forever,
No more spinning off track.

Dragons in the sky,
Clouds whisper by,
Scent of summer in the air,
Soon I will not care.

Soon I will not care,
What you do or do not do.
Whether here or there,
I can’t keep on loving you.

A time to change,
It can’t always feel the same.
Something’s lost within your heart,
How did I miss it from the start?
Maybe it was me.

The journey to that inner smile,
Can be a winding, rambling ride,
Shortcuts exist.
But you’re sure to miss,
If you keep searching outside.

Looking for answers?
Then don’t forget to ask.
The truth can lie inside,
So we must listen to our hearts.

Dragons in the sky,
Clouds whisper by,
Scent of summer in the air,
Soon I will not care.

Soon I will not care,
What you do or do not do.
Whether here or there,
I can’t keep on loving you.

Unbroken

A thousand lovesick letters
Written but never sent,
Long before I knew the truth,
Your honesty was bent.

I do not need to bargain,
Wager my soul or more,
To keep that fear from knocking,
Upon my heart’s closed door.

A delusion can be a grand thing,
As long as you keep it fed,
I once believed that I was weak,
Monsters under my bed.

Lost in love, I lost the most.
Downtrodden and unspoken.
Forgot myself, I was a ghost,
But now my heart’s unbroken.

Appearances are deceptive,
My inner strength did keep,
I struggled to feel whole again,
Against those odds so steep.

Self-imprisoned for so many years,
And now my sprit freed,
A fortunate escape from darkness,
Chaos, jealousy and greed.

Intentions are irrelevant,
Words are softer than deeds,
The security you search for,
Wont be found in pockets deep,

A true friendship shall never be
Something bought or sold,
The only recompense I seek
Is in a heart of gold.

Wants and Needs

The heart wants,
The heart needs,
Not always granted,
At times appeased.
Life isn’t fair,
Sometimes a nightmare.
The key is to be kind to yourself,
Don’t rely on anyone else.

Kind words are blessings,
Forgotten too soon.
Unfair actions of others,
Inscribe our mental cocoons.
Words can also be painful,
So deal them out careful.
Never say never,
Maybe in time you’ll know better.

Fate is a temptress,
So don’t play her game.
Permanence is an illusion,
Deceiving the sane.
Don’t be fooled,
Because some hearts
Will not be true.
And know fear cannot bind us,
It shall only unwind trust.

 

Harmony

The passion and power of poetry,
Placing my pain on a page,
There it can live outside of me,
Relinquishing inner anxieties.

Thoughts ramble through the maze of mind.
Spoken out loud,
Resounding through time,
Sparking revelations
A new understanding.

Nothing is static
We are all reverberating.
Feelings are frequencies
Tuned to our biological receivers.
White noise…
The echoes of negative thoughts
On the emergency broadcast system.

Harmony is homeostasis in our hearts.

Letting Go

Sometimes in life we build a wall around ourselves,
Only to realise that we are defending against an invisible external,
When the hurt and fear we are carrying is held within.
The madness of it all is that these feelings are not ours to hold.
If we break down the walls and open our eyes
We might just see there is no darkness inside anymore.
There is a light shining, however fragile at first.
We must feed this tiny flame with compassion.
Understanding is key to forgiveness.
Forgiving is key to letting go.
Let go, watch the fire grow!

The Tale of Lost Canyon

There once was a town high up in the mountains and in it lived a thousand people. The people were decent, hard-working folk who lived entirely by the clock, ever watchful and mindful of what they should be doing at certain hours of the day in accordance with the town’s strict customs. One of these prescribed that children, teenagers and even young adults were to be seen and heard at all times. This was to safeguard against them venturing up the treacherous peaks surrounding Lost Canyon, which was strictly prohibited because everyone who had done so vanished when they reached the other side, never to be seen or heard from again.

Lost Canyon terrified the locals. Mothers, fathers and grandparents in particular were constantly filled with dread, and each had their own negative expectations and wild imaginings of what terrors might await their children, who were very curious to know the truth about it all.

Gentle Contentedness

There is a feeling that arises from being in exactly the right place at the right time. Notions of synchronicity are often hard to describe in words, but this visceral feeling I’m alluding to is a simple one, best described in terms of gentle contentedness.

We’ve all felt it, sometimes it’s just a fleeting moment that passes us by, while other times, we feel it in situations that are more  permanent, like the lasting glow of a warm and honest relationship.

All of a sudden you feel at home in yourself, in harmony with your surroundings, enjoying that pure ecstasy of existence. Enveloping you like a warm blanket nesting a newborn child, it is playful and light, the touch of a summer breeze. Giggles rumble from deep in the belly, surfacing without restriction at every opportunity.

The real question is, how do we stay in this blissful state indefinitely? How do we hold on to a harmonious homeostasis of one’s consciousness?

As with most questions in life, the answer lies within you. What led you to this feeling in the first place?

You might just notice that you have been in heightened communion with self, you have not merely listened to that inner voice of eternal truth, you have answered it. You have exchanged with the real you, and in doing so, remembered that you are just as innocent and pure this very moment as you were on your first day of existence on this planet. Each breath we breathe can be like our first – fresh, alive and open to the universe of spontaneous positivity that awaits us all without bias.
