A home for our hearts

Are you my girl next door?
Do you live on the floor,
Above my glass ceiling?

Are you the fire,
That glows in my hearth?
The warmth in the air,
Bringing lightness of breath?

Will we build four walls around us?
Yet leave space for windows,
And doors wide open?

Are you the roof over my head?
Where someday,
We shall share the same bed?

Is there a home to be made betwixt us?
Will our hearts form mutual sanctuary,
A shelter from the storm?

We cannot know if it’s meant to be.
But first we can construct a shack,
That’s temporary.

And if it weathers,
The elements well,
We can always build,
A stronger shell.

Laughter and light,
Will be our blocks.
Love and compassion,
Our sand and cement.

With understanding,
As our foundation.
Together in love,
Growth and transformation.

Believe

As I watch the sun set for one last time on the wilder side of my world, the golden glow fades behind rugged islands that lie out far beyond the bay, and I wonder if I shall ever find another soul who will care to share with me these wondrous moments.

Will it be I alone who revels at the marbled sky? Who watches as the birds glide hurriedly home to their nurturing nests. Now I am a solitary songbird. Will my own music be enough to soothe my soul? Will those fiery plumes, left in the wake of our life giving star’s descent, be enough to warm my heart?

Can I please my own mind scanning the horizon for random sights that bless the present as unique, never to be seen or felt or heard again?

Will I miss your presence every time nature marvels in my eyes?

I must trust that somewhere there are eyes out there that see the same, who wonder if they will meet another’s glance and for a moment feel an ease of that subtle, solemn pain.

Loneliness is only lonesome when we alone are not enough.

Can the unconditional love we have to share with the world, for life, nature and every being and creature in existence be suffice to compensate for these moments not shared?

Maybe…

I guess I will eventually see.

Somewhere inside I do believe.

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.

 

Dark Healer

Everybody wants a piece of her,
A smile, a glance, a word, a touch.
But in reserve she doesn’t hold that much.
An absence of darkness, transformed by her light,
This is her gift, so precious tonight.

To know her is to love her,
Because we are not all that blessed,
With truly knowing what lies in her chest.
A heart full of gold… a soul surely old?
An innocent luminance… glitters of fairy dust?

Lost on the way to finding oneself,
Pulled piece by piece by claimants of help,
But she is hers, not no-one else’s.
Try to own her and you’re surely senseless.
What are you seeking to hold?

A flickering candle in the darkest of nights,
Has a warmth and a brightness,
But it’s not to be held nor swallowed up,
It is what it is, enjoy it as such.

Don’t try to chain her,
Don’t try to blame her,
She is the light,
Holds off the night,
Eyes are so bright,
Love of my life.

Time melts away,
In the warmth of an embrace,
Epic journeys mere stepping stones,
When your hand finds it’s place
In the palm of a beautiful being.

She’s finding her way,
A new way for a new day,
Her right and her privilege.
Life’s now a game we both lust to play.

Don’t try to chain her,
Don’t try to blame her,
She is the light,
Holds off the night,
Eyes are so bright,
Lost love of my life.
