Words make us feel…

What is real

Your words

Hit my chest

Cracked my heart

Open

Just enough

To let you in

And I am now able to touch

What I never could..

Feel…

Destiny…

image

Awakened in a dream

In reminiscence of lapsed time

A  mirrored reflection

When summer lasted for years

Wild flowers in fields of gold

As vivid rainbows after a storm

When the sun out shined

The winter’s relentless bitter cold

When I had wings to fly

Before the storms consumed

The blue of my sky

Lessons learned in pain

In  preparation for a journey

A surety I will not faint 

It is my road alone

That I must trudge

The road less travelled

A destiny till my end

Will You hold my hand…

A void heart…

image

My heart descended into

A fourth dimension in time

Bursting into a thousand pieces

A supernova leaving only remnant

To be swept up by a dark matter

My core ceased to exist

Gravity collapsing inward

Under the force of my own will

Denying illumination embracing a

nebulous atmosphere of space and time

Where your heart was no longer
mine

Leaving

Behind

A

black

hole…

Infinity…

Absent

Of

All

Rhyme

New Life…

image

As I open the door that I had closed long ago

Regret remorse and bitter sadness burn like acid deep into my soul

War raged for many years

I fainted for lack of hope

I was conquered by the darkness

A Prisoner of whom I did not know

My fight was fought in vain

Awakened by a moment of clarity

While lying in the rain

Only to find a space in time

That was no longer mine

Consumed in fear for knowledge

Of what I had become

Truth grabbed my heart with both fists tightening as I cried

What had happened to everything I knew

My light and truth had died

A blinding pain rebuked vision from my eyes

My spirit screamed at the sight of me

Demanding an answer as to why

I knew at that moment that light had left my side

As I mourned and loathed my very existence

Knowing I could no longer hide

A heart of stone softened by the tears that I cried

A warm breeze a caressing of hope

persuading me to forgive

And love myself again or maybe

For the first time…

The bridge I must cross…

image

Sometimes I hide from what I know to be true for it frightens me

My journey insists I cross a bridge that I rather not cross

Like a child’s uncertainty walking by the light of the moon

So my thoughts intrude in my clouded mind persuading me to higher ground

image

I must cross or I will surely die

A bitter death of a spiritual kind

Intuitively I am painfully aware that I mustn’t haste

A day dream becomes my reality
demanding I move from my comfort zone

I am afraid…

What is on the other side…

Can you tell me

Or maybe I could continue

To hide…



No
I
Want
To
Be
Alive
