You in Yourself - November 23, 2014

You in Yourself

You in yourself,
treasure your secrets
inside a trance,
as your greatest work of art.
You lay them down  
as your reality
among the colorful leaves
then let them lie….
to your heart.

I simply wait
as your diamond
for you to turn the pages
of my body
while you sing.
I’m left dreaming of your smile
within a roaring tide
believing your time….
is everything.

Silencing the Beauty of My Breath - March 31, 2014

My heart loves the eyes of time 
and inside I feel that I know I hold the soul 
which looks into the life of each and every word
holding the light of my life each day.  
The world hears my mind and sees my eyes 
when night places a smile on my face. 

My heart sees the sweet dreams of the sun 
when my tears hand my spirit
to the song of the air 
and my thoughts hand my pain to truth 
and the winds of the moon.  
Still,  I wonder, 
what right do my wings have 
to silence the beauty of my breath so soon.  

Your voice walks softly 
as it sings to the shadows of the sea 
and I wonder
if I will sleep with the thought of your lies
touching my skies 
and if I will feel your kiss speaking to me.  
While I watch the places
where your memories rain on the peace
your lips deceived so free.

I thought I heard you dancing to the left of the winds 
and I thought hope would listen 
and be filled with the music of change
wishing I'd known I could forget the sound. 
Because  I saw the sight of darkness 
and still remembered the light
I had found.

I now rest in the coldness of what I write 
and stop your arms from burning the sweetness
of the end of my years
with your clouds and your flowers that are broken so gently.  
the waves of your flames
seek the silent softness
within the paths of me.

My Heart Bleeds in Every Shade of You - Sept. 02, 2013

My Heart Bleeds in Every Shade of You

I hear my fate
surrounding your every touch
and my heart bleeds
in every shade of you.
Because of you,
the colors of my life
have become
a golden sea of happiness,
your sweet love........
breathes into.

You fulfill every dream
that has ever exhaled
into the deepest parts
of my heart.
my soul runs to you whispering,
I have arrived
with no end to my trust,
from your side..........
I will not part”.

Truth - Where Happiness Hides ~ July 05, 2013

Truth - Where Happiness Hides

Towering boxes full of days
are hidden
by the lies you hold inside
your feelings.
They whisper louder
with each year that passes
sending your happiness
a reeling.

Alone, becomes the key
to your sanity,
yet burns a hole
in the palm of your heart.
You find yourself angry
at everything,
as you linger
while your world
falls apart.

You have fallen asleep
inside the shadow
of loneliness
those towering boxes
Tip them over with the truth
resting inside you
and wake
where happiness hides.

Time Hailed the Wind - May 17, 2013

Time Hailed the Wind

From a flaming fire, Time hailed the Wind
Because he was enamored
By the way she scattered leaves in gusts so sweet
He celebrated her beauty by running his hands backward
Whirling streaks of fire in flaming heat

Morning beckoned to the hands of Time to see the Ocean wide
To try and end his celebration of the Wind
Hoping he would be enamored
By the changing tide
His backward running, he would then unwind

Time's flaming fire burned higher, as he felt a breeze
Flowing cool, on his quickly spinning hands
No rest would he find, until the Wind he pleased
Ignoring Morning, he moved even faster
Surely, she would understand

Evening persuaded Morning to leave this post to him
Thinking he could stop Time's ardent quest
Yet he forgot that true love cannot be dimmed
When he showed him all the stars
He loved best

From a flaming fire, Time hailed the Wind
Knowing that she was his one desire
Morning and Evening could never stop his hands
For Time's love for the Wind,  fed his fire

May 02, 2013 - Spinning Round Here Insane

Spinning Round Here Insane

No matter which notes are played on still waters
they weigh heavy on my pain
when they fall.
There are days when I realize
I am spinning 'round
and murmuring,
feeling forced and raw.

It seems that time dwindles down
into its own sea
then wakes the night
asking to be filled with hours.
Everything I do
seems to make time kiss the places
where I spin,
as it devours.

I can feel a searing look
from eyes on the sidelines
when I attempt to hold the jewels of darkness
next to me.
Their footsteps
are like the million curses of tears,

Before the door closes on my life's journey
I know the moon will rise
in all its angelic innocence
once again.
Until then, I will dream
of polishing those jewels,
spinning round

When Night Stands on the Waters - April 11, 2013

When Night Stands on the Waters

Exhale your emotions
onto all of our memories
waxing as poetic candles,
rub your feelings all over me.
While vague unexpected hours
root deeply
and mingle inside all they see.

I can hear our laughter lingering
when night stands on the waters
of our love,
never growing tired or flickering.
Following close behind
the heels of my heart
never leaving..........
or wandering.

We have been given a life
that comes after midnight,
guiding us,
letting no poison command our faith.
I smile,
in knowing our love
will grow stronger,
as each day passes away.
