Moonlit Heart.

Bright star in the sky,
Shine's bright like a field of diamonds.
Stretching out beyond the skies,
Into the heavens beyond the light of Earth.

Playfully speaking in words unspoken,
Whistling sounds through the dim lit waters,
Bubbling up through salty foam and fading off
Into the night light of my mind.

Moon reflects into the shadows,
lighting the corners of my heart,
Stirring settled dust,
Like cold water to the face.

Breathing softly,
Deeply,
Achingly, lingering closely,
Unfolding gifts of life worth living,
Squinting,
light touches the untouchable from a distance.

Far away there's more to see,
Through a single star.
Deep and dark,
Moonlit heart.

Waves.

The waves are crashing hard tonight,
They rumble the windows,
Dark,
Cold,
Cold and wet.
Misty haze and salty dreams,
Fill the air like a drunk breathing fire,
Unavoidable.
Chunky sand full of fleas;
Ones that you can't shake,
Because you can't tell they're there.
This damn black cloud,
Rumbling my windows.
I'm trying to sleep.
I can taste you,
On my lips,
Feel you in my veins,
The hair stands up on my neck to think,
So close. 
So far.
So hot.
Now cold?
This night lingers on,
The waves rumble.

Fading Away.

The stars are shining brighter.
The planes are flying higher.
The shore is softly glowing,
The night is setting in.

The crickets are softly chirping,
The frogs alive and croaking,
The moon is dimly rising,
The day has come and gone.

The smooth sea is flat as ice,
The sand still warm at night,
The egrets loudly singing,
The Earth let's out a moan.

The palm trees softly sway,
The wind kisses the moon,
The dolphins quietly swim,
The summer fades away.

Morning Mist.

The morning mist fills the air,
Leaving a fine, film residue.
It comes to visit me on most days.
I step out onto the deck,
And take a bite out of the thick,
Salted air-
It fills my belly,
Satisfying and cleansing my innermost desires.
Many things and creatures make up what I am closest to.
In this world I speak to the mist,
Laugh with the birds,
And make love to the sky.
There is nothing and everything to say at times.
The world feeds my soul,
And I feed it,
Working together,
There is no need for words.

Living Mural.

I can see two small motorboats,
Floating in the fog soaked cove.
Early morning sun,
Still asleep under the grey canopy.

Pelicans pass by,
Calmly going on with their day.
Making themselves at home,
On the two boats floating at sea.

The egrets join in,
They're not far behind.
Majestically shining,
Their piercing, white coats,
A stark contrast against the dark blue,
Living mural.

I too want to float with the boats,
Fly with the pelicans,
And hunt with the egrets.

Make myself at home,
And calmly go on with my day.
Live my life majestically,
Amongst the canopy of grays and blues,
In the fog soaked hues,
In the living mural of nature.

Black Sky Dream

In the night,
When I'm alone,
I close my eyes and think of you.
Whispering in my ear,
Your words are like wine to my soul,
Sedating my mind and senses,
I'm in your control.

Few things could touch me,
In the ways that you have.
This life is worth living,
To just dream of your hands.

Uncovering my body,
One piece at a time.
Exploring the mystery,
You've held in your mind.

This night holds darkness,
No one has seen.
The moon in the distance,
Just a sliver it seems.

No matter how dark,
You hold the key.
You light up the room,
When you smile at me.

My head hits the pillow,
I let out a sigh.
I reach out for you,
But grasp black,
Empty sky.

Who I am.


There are so many words,
Yet as I lay here,
I can't think of one.
My mind can't speak,
What my weary heart can feel.
I give you all of me because I know no other way.
This simplicity is not who I am,
It's what I am.
But what am I to you?
Am I a prince or a thief?
Am I someone you love,
Or a vision of what you choose to believe?
Remember one day you said what you meant,
You said that you loved me.
And I mean when I say I love you but won't take the pain.
I can't show you who I'm not,
Because that is a lie.
I am who I am.
I am good and I am kind.

Into The Sunset

I see my future in your eyes,
Golden brown highlights,
Across the sun-splashed skyline.
I see us walking in the sand,
Your fingers exploring my skin,
Holding me close in the crisp,
Morning air.
I see us listening to nature's sounds,
Staring up at the stars,
Being lost in the moment of the infinite night.
I see you holding your head up high,
Powerful like a lioness,
Your shining rays piercing my heart with your beauty.
I see us together in our home,
Learning,
Growing close,
Our souls aligning in the heavens-
Together as one.
I see us traveling the world,
Through our youth and then growing older.
Humbly,
Riding off into the golden sunset of life.

Speechless.

I sat speechless with myself.
Quiet remnants of a dusty, sleepy willow.
Charred memories and wishful thoughts.
I could've slept, only the very sounds I lived for demanded every minute of my mind.
Fervently and feverishly inking my every thought,
I thought I was sick.
Living in a story that was no more real than the lies I created.
Mixing two worlds,
Intertwined, dancing with the devil himself,
A fool to my God.
I could only do what I was able,
Still paralyzed from what I was always told.
Only until I sat with myself,
Speechless,
Could I breathe into the world,
And release my spirit into the heavens.
Living and loving.
Accepting that we are both equal.

The Depths

With every crashing wave,
A piece of my heart cries out for you.
Dark, deep and blue,
Streaking, moonlit hues.

I don't know where to go,
I don't know what to do.
The night sky softly glows,
Illuminating an image of us two.

What's perfect as your face,
What's darker than your eyes.
I can't sleep another day,
I can't live another night.

I listen for the sounds,
I search within my soul.
For you I'd read a thousand books,
For you, I'd read them all.

To know just what to do,
When nothing will go right.
To live the way you want me to,
I'd sit and write all night.

God grants me this beautiful life,
To be alone with you.
Please hold me and just love me,
As children would only do.

3 words would bring us closer,
Yet they don't define,
This poet's words could never whisper,
The words I have in mind.

The ocean has been silenced,
It seems to know me know.
It speaks to me in words unsaid,
It listens, cares, is kind.

It's brought me here,
From far way,
To this place that I call home.
Just as I've come,
I may be gone,
From sea,
To tides,
To foam.







Tuesday, July 9, 2013

Living Sky.

Pinks meet purples,
Violet's and blues.
Streaking, slowly sinking,
Meets deep and warm hues.

Painting a picture,
A bird passing by,
Sitting, waiting patiently,
A living, breathing sky.

Trees still,
Motionless as the moon.
Breeze breathes and effervescent air blooms.
Warm air,
Meets cool,
Clouds taking a break.
Fish swim,
Flowers drink,
Nectar red as the snake.

Time flies,
Life slows,
Light sinking, passing by.
Child sleeps,
Moonbeams,
Palm trees in the sky.

Unseen.

Eyes can't speak,
The beauty they see.
But the mind can see,
What it cannot feel.
A heart is touched,
In many ways.
But it cannot change,
Love's intrinsic blade.
A beautiful rose,
Cannot be explained.
Touching, feeling,
Eyes close in vain. 
White as snow,
Finger tips explore,
Lying gently on the floor.
Dreaming of ten thousand smiles,
Wishing, waiting,
6,000 miles.

Fly. (Sonnet)


When I rest and lay down my head,
No more would I have began to dream,
Than look out and see my life pass me by.
Blue waters and birds fly through,
Finding their way through winds and air.
Only a burden as the one painted on my heart,
Could feel as I do with a life so great.
More often than not we too wish to fly with the birds,
But like the water, run cold and deep.
No despair could bring, tears such as mine.
Touching the depths of the pit where they remain buried.
Life and love intertwined through journeys left untraveled.
For I am not just a man, but a boy looking through eyes I do not own.
I long to be a bird that does not rest, one with no dreams.

Left Behind.

Today I'm not myself.
And you,
You're by yourself.

All my wounds give in.
And all the stars,
Close in.

What a peculiar place,
We're in.

Let's live,
Again.

Where all of the love,
Is sin.

Lets live,
Again,

Somewhere where we,
Can win.

We won't find the pieces to the puzzle,
Closing off our hearts alone.

Wherever you go,
I'll be close behind.

Look into your self,
And you can visit what you left behind.

Right now.

Separate Ways.

I had a dream,
I woke up with my arms around you.

Huddled close,
My hands exploring the soft outlines of your face.

Traffic lights and sirens blaring down below,
Precious moments a gift from above,
Young,
Naive love blossoming.

Only heaven could deliver moments as pure as this,
Yet our love is distant.

Breathing you in,
I inhale a piece of your soul,
Taking your heart with me,
Wherever I go.

We are more than even the universe had planned.
Spinning,
Tumbling,
Into pure bliss,
With no where to go.


One More Kiss

I'd give anything for one more kiss.
Staring out the window,
I am lost.
I thought I would be fine when you were gone,
But as I stare into the clouds,
Your soul softly whispers in my ear.
When I close my eyes,
You're still here.
Holding my hand and kissing me softly,
Holding me close.
You've changed me.
Your face is like ink on my skin,
A permanent inscription of special moments shared only by us.
They say that time heals all,
But in this moment,
Time is standing still.
And I will wait forever. 
For just one more kiss.

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Souls.

My heart is hurting.
I am alone again.
Can't seem to find,
The words to say.

In such a short time,
We've come so far,
Yet in just one day,
You've gone away.

My mind replays,
Our time together.
Warm, summer walks,
Late night smiles.

There's so much more,
Than we thought.
Too blind to see,
Through tainted eyes.

Naive to think,
But quick to speak,
We left two souls behind.
No time will tell,
No love will dwell,
Deeper in my heart,
Than thine.



Friday, June 28, 2013

Lullaby.

Days are longer,
Nights grow shorter.
Summer whispers goodbye.

Moonbeams,
Windows.
Whispers,
Hello's.

Feel my heart,
As it sings to you.

Oh,
As the night goes on,
My thoughts turn to you.

Oh as the night goes on.
My thoughts turn to you.

Sleepless sleeping.
Tears speak,
Knees weak.

Sigh's flow freely as the sun fade's.
Water colors.
Huddle closer.

Tears's gone dry as you drift away.

Oh,
As the night goes on,
My thought's turn to you.

Oh,
As the night goes on,
My thought's turn to you.

Lonely night,
Lullaby.
Mind will wander,
As it slips away.

Oh,
As the night goes on,
My thought's turn to you.

Oh,
As the night goes on,
My thought's turn to you.

Lullaby.
Lullaby.

One more night,
You and I.

Lullaby.
You and I.

More Than Love.

I love you,
Not because of what you do,
Or who you are,
Or where you're from.

I love you,
Not because you're my soulmate,
Or because I'm told to,
Or because I need a new start.

I love you,
Not because of your sweet face,
Or beautiful eyes,
Or tender touch.

I love you,
Not because we are connected,
Or because I need you,
Or because I'm lost.

I love you,
Not because of the stars,
The moon,
Or the sun.

I love you,
Not because I miss you,
Or because the way you kiss me,
Or because our souls together are one.

I love you,
Only because I love you.
There is no mystery in love.

I love you not because you understand me,
Or because you complete me,

I love you deeper than even love.

The Voice of Knowledge.

The voice of knowledge speaks softly to me as I lay in bed.
A voice that speaks to me in words I could have never said.
There are moments when I think God has brought me here for a plan.
And there are moments when I don't know if I can continue as I am.
Oftentimes the road is rocky and we stray from the path.
But I am always reminded that we need to do the best we can.

As I sit and write, my eyes fill up, not because I'm scared.
I realize how far I've come and where I'm going and for once I do not care.
Everything else that happens, is extra for me in this life.
Because at one point in time, I was struggling, nearly succumbing to the light.
Every day I have struggled. Every day I have been in pain.
But through the voice of knowledge, I would grow, I would never be the same.

Time was needed for me to understand.
That as we grow older sometimes we just need a helping hand.
Angels are all around us. If we believe, we can see.
The voice of knowledge is here to help us.
Do not cry,
Do not weep.





Au Revoir.

Know that when you leave me and return to him,
Things will never be the same.
As you go through your days,
You will return to your pain that you left.
As slowly as it was gone,
It will return,
But not in the same way.
Because everyday you are with him,
You will hold his hand and it won't be mine.
You will kiss his lips and they won't be mine.
You will look into his eyes and say I love you,
But it won't be the same.
Temporarily,
You may feel as if you are fine,
But as the days pass,
The rains will come.
Everyday you will compare him to me,
Every action and every word,
And it will feel as if a thousand elephants are standing on your chest,
Because I will be gone.
Even though I may be close,
I will be so far because when you left,
You took a part of me that is forever lost.
As I look in the mirror,
I see a reflection that bears the memories of us.
These memories will forever remain a piece of my soul as I continue on my journey.
I know that my scars could not keep you,
But that only through your own could you realize what you have lost.
Only when you are clutching your pillow,
And alone with your tears will you then realize that I was a good man.
That I was a great man.

Memory.


When i first met you,
I didn't know what to think.
Your mystery shrouded my thoughts,
I was mystified by your beauty.

Your sweetness reflected from your eyes,
I saw myself,
Here before.
Etched like stained glass,
A permanent existence in my heart.

Few people come into my life,
in which i care for.
Few people hold the depth,
I so vicariously search for.

Cliche and reality can co-exist.
Because when I'm with you,
I'm in total bliss.

As the night lingers,
So does the memory of you.
I will never forget the moments we shared,
just us two.

Gone.

I want you so bad,
It hurts.
White walls stare back,
I curse.

My lungs can't take another breath.
Without you,
I am paralyzed, 
I lay in bed.

Life around me racing fast.
Yet,
I'm still clinging to the past.
A silly, bumbling mess,
Longing only for your sweet caress.

I stare at my phone,
With no response.
I long to dial but just cannot.
I am broken,
But not quite dead.

My heart still beating,
I take a breath.




Friday, June 21, 2013

Love is.

Love isn't always what's right,
Love isn't always what's good.
Love can be tempting and kind.
But most will never love who they should.

Love can deliver us from hell.
Love can bring us to heaven.
Love hurts and is everything between,
But love with the right person lasts forever.

Love to most is only a dream.
Love isn't always what it seems.
Love can many times bring us to our past.
But love can't save us from ourselves.

Love does not confuse.
Love should not fight.
Love is for all those who want it.
True love won't ever leave us alone at night.


Tuesday, June 18, 2013

The Dream


I will dream of holding your hand,
Laying in bed with me.
The soft scent of your perfume,
Still clinging to me,
Like the memory of your sweet kisses and rosy lips.
Two strangers who didn't need much.
Lost in the innocence of a longing to be loved,
And to love.

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Pure Love.

I could sit here and stare out the window all night,
An old, medieval church lines the warm sunset skyline.
Ferries slowly make their way across the shimmering river.
As I close my eyes,
My voice cracks and quivers. 
Whispering a prayer, sending it through the trees. 
To the limits beyond what my eyes can see. 
I'm reminded on this warm, spring night,
That it's not what we want that holds us tight.
Beauty is in the eye of its beholder,
And as I sit and write,
My lover is missing,
Her head softly laying on my shoulder. 
The moon stares down,
Taunting, testing me.
But I won't let it bring me to my knees.
I've been here and I've been there before.
My heart is sacred,
My love is pure. 

Friday, June 7, 2013

Rainy Night.

I can hear the rain,
Falling down on the street below.
Streaking drops of water,
Against the glow of misty, city lights.
There is an aura,
Of quietness here tonight.
Calm amidst the chaos,
Of trains and noisy nights. 
I look out over the water,
A backdrop cloaked in grey.
Old churches line the shore,
Who knows what role they've played.
So much truth lies amongst the old, stone walls.
They tell a tale of enduring strength,
Cemented in the skyline.
Where there is humanity,
Chaos isn't far.
But tonight the city sleeps,
Amidst the beautiful, invisible stars. 



Saturday, June 1, 2013

First time.

I remember the time we first met,
Our eyes caught each other in a quick glance.
Deep,
Dark,
Mischievous.
I couldn't tell you yet,
But from that moment on,
I knew I loved you.
Just like the tides depend on the moon,
An infant to her mother,
Air to the lungs,
I needed you.



Tuesday, May 21, 2013

I want you.

I want you.
All of you.
So bad that it hurts to breathe.

This feeling is so strong,
I just can't even speak.

I want you,
it burns,
My heart cannot take.

Every second I'm away from you,
My soul shatters,
My earth shakes.

I want you,
I need you.
You're my heaven on earth.

My tears pounding the pavement,
Slick streets,
I stand and I curse.

I want you,
all of you,
I know you can feel.

Me rushing inside of you,
Hold me close,
Don't leave.

Hurt.

I stepped out into the cool, ocean air today,
But this time there was no relief.
I felt only a lingering pain, a sudden change, that clamped down hard and hurt me deep.
There are some thing's in life, I can't explain, that won't ever go away.
No matter how hard I try, or what I do, somehow I seem to get in my own way.
I know that in the end, I'll look back, and maybe laugh at these words I say.
But in this moment, I am hurt, and in pain, and will look forward to another day.

Following The Signs


The salted morning air hits my face like a ton of bricks,
I step out into a new world towards the rising sun.
The breezes softly call my name, making their way through the palms.
Sifting through the sand, my calling, elusive as the whales passing through the sea.
There is no bitter loneliness, worse than ignoring what is yours to own.
To not follow the signs is to forever be alone.
So much time, yet there is no relief given.
We choose our pathways and lay in our own graves.
This morning chill resonates with me, because so much has changed.
Months turned to years and yet, I'm still nearly the same.
Except, now I follow the path, in which I am called.
Following the breeze, through the billowing trees and dried out leaves,
I leave my home.

Heaven


                  I am awakened by my dreams and the soft,

rumbling of the crashing waves.
           
                  What a joy to live in this beautiful creation that is within our reach.


A soft baby's cry reminds that I am no longer dreaming.

                  This truly is heaven.

Tired Souls

My soul is tired,
the Earth beckons me home.

What is living without life?
There is so much pain,
It hurts to speak.

I cannot hide,
Tears are dry,
Like wildfires that fan them,
Streaking black,
Billowing smoke.
Burning down the mountainside,
But yet,
I am still here.
And I am alive as the very things that are living,
And thriving hate into this country.

There is no I anymore.
Because only we can take away the pain.

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Cut Short.

I thought I was pained,
Until I looked into your eyes.
There what I saw,
Was not a surprise.

Deep brown and spotted,
Nearly black as the night.
Hollow as your whisper,
Deep scars, candlelight.

I breathed into you,
To give you some life,
I reached into you,
And shook with my might.

Try as I would,
I could not get through.
You'd succumbed to the world.
Straight out of the womb.

Dreams (Sonnet #1)

Awakened from my slumber, I drift back to my dreams.
Softened by pillows, my mind humbly sleeps.
Life speaks to me brilliantly, through nature and love.
I quietly embace, God's sweet gifts from above.
Few things remain, except for dreams in this world.
Where war, sex and money rules, humans just do as they're told.
Not much time has passed, yet still, so much remains. 
As I drift off even deeper, I inhale in the pain. 
I sense there's a change, I sense there is light.
I sense most want to love, yet they continue to fight.
What's real is unsure, time gets in the way.
Again, back to sleep the real world paused for the day.
Dreaming softly and sweetly, I find heaven within.
My dreams here come true, the real world's at it's end. 




Because Of You

I love you deeply.
You are embedded in
me,
As I go through my day.

Breezes blow me your
Kisses,
From a distance.
I don't have to be gone
for long,
To know that I miss you.

Because,
Simply put,
Every second your hand is not
on my hand,
Your lips on my lips,
Your breath on my skin,
I cannot go on.

Because of you,
I'm able to breathe,
Live,
Speak sweet words to you,
Anything to make you smile.

Because of you,
My worn heart is complete.
And I am alive.
I love you.


Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Right Now.

Right now,
I am not human.
I may be dead.
There are many noises, 
Echoing through my head.

Right now,
I am alive,
But I can't see.
The road before me,
Intermittently bleak.

Speaking,
Thinking,
Lovely,
Singing,

I need to escape.

Right now,
I'm trapped.
Have I gone insane?

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Beautiful People.

You may be easy on the eyes,
And have pockets full of gold.
But there really is no comparison,
When you're beautiful in the soul.

It's easy to judge the surface,
Closing your heart to those around.
But it's hard to learn to listen,
To love's warm,
soft beating sounds.

The world is full of people,
Who are terrified to be themselves.
Projecting fears onto others,
Projecting a living hell.

We are all beautiful people,
We share a common goal.
When we finally come to see that,
Our true purpose will unfold.

I Need You.

I need you,
Like water to survive,
I will die without your love.

I need you,
And your affection,
Your sweet kisses and touch melts my soul.

I need you,
You are the air that fills my lungs,
The reason I go on.

I need you,
You are my sun,
Your warmth fills my world.

I need you,
You are the blood in my veins,
I carry you with me always.

I need you,
And your sweet, playful eyes,
To comfort my troubled mind.

I need you,
You are the sea,
The stars,
The moon,
The earth.

My Love.

I need you.

Childlike Days.

These days fly by like the wind,
There's no time to think.
With every new dawn rising,
Life has flashed by in a blink.

I remember my childhood,
Clear as day.
Running through the sprinklers,
A little boy,
I'd laugh and play.

It's funny how time changes so much.
Yet there's always a part of us,
With which we stay in touch.

Time will fly by,
No matter which way.
Each day we grow older,
A new hair turns gray.

But as clear as our dear memories remain,
So too will our childlike spirit.
Choosing to live in the present,
Always remembering our childlike days.





Sunday, March 3, 2013

You're Not Here.

I can't think.
I can't speak.

You're not here.

I can't live.
I can't breathe.

You're not here.

I can't laugh.
I can't cry.

You're not here.

I can't live.
I can't die.

You're not here.

I can't sing.
I can't scream.

You're not here.

I can't love.
I can't live.

You're not here.

I can't.
I can't.
I can't.

You're not here.

We Were So Young.

When I close my eyes,
I'm with you.
Standing by the old apple orchard,
I remember the sweet smell of the blossoming buds.
Holding hands,
We were so young.

The smell of your perfume,
It was the only one I ever loved,
Because it reminded me of you.
When you were gone,
I was lost,
Because I could not live without you.
We were so young.

I remember the smell of your hair,
And how you looked at me.
In me.
It brought tears to my eyes.
How I felt safe with you.
We were so young.

We'd sneak off when no one was watching,
And kiss,
Looking up at the stars.
We were innocent and naive.
But we were in love.
We were so young.

Planes

I can see the planes fly out,
Over the majestic,
moonlit waters.
The morning sun still yawning,
Stretching,
Waiting for the right moment.

Bright lights permeate the dark,
Cold air.
I wonder where they are going,
What they are doing.

I long to see the world,
To be the permeating light.
Spreading my wings like the planes,
And burning my way through the sky,
Etching a piece of myself into you.

Full Moon

On night's the moon is full,
I can't help but sit,
and stare.
Dark waters whine below.

It's Warm,
bright beams,
bounce off my black
rimmed glasses,
and catch a glare.

Why does it torture us?
In all it's glory.
If it has such power?

Why can't it bring us,
the comfort we seek,
In nature,
Hummingbird,
Or flower?

If my sighs could speak,
They'd cry,
They'd bleed,
They'd sing a wailing song.

Beckoning and pleading,
To be released,
I pray for the rising sun.

May Never Come Back.

I may never come back,
but I want you to know.
You live in my heart,
Body and soul.

The soft breezes blow,
Small pieces around.
I'm constantly with you,
Listen close to the sounds.

I may never come back,
to how I was before.
But know I'm even better,
Than the person you knew.

See I haven't just left,
And didn't give up.
I loved you so much,
To say it's enough.

Waves crash and echo,
through our special bay.
A place we called home,
On any given day.

You'd rush to the door,
With eyes big and bright.
And greet me so sweetly,
To my loving delight.

These memories I cherish,
And will always hold near.
Remember the good things,
Don't focus on tears.

I know when you're ready,
and life becomes clear.
You'll come looking for me,
My lovely,
Sweet dear.

Water's Edge

I woke up before the birds today,
And walked down to the sounds of the cold,
Winter,
Waters edge. 

In a whispered weep,
I laid down on the sand.
My weathered mind,
In search of sleep. 

I could feel the soul of the world,
Through the earth underneath. 
It's heartbeat throbbing,
As if it were about to speak. 

At that moment,
The morning birds in their delight,
Began to sing. 
And I was brought back to my feet.
I knew then that Mother Earth had heard me weep.

Reflection.

When I look at you,
I see a piece of myself,
Through the eyes of an innocent child.

Reflecting freedom,
In your warm glow,
Your tender smile I hold close to my heart.

It makes me happy,
To know you,
To see you,
To love you as you are.

Innocent.

In all the universe,
There is only one you,
And one of us,
Our time together is cherished.

Promise me,
You'll never stop smiling,
Glowing,
Loving,
Growing,
Giving.

Because this life is sweet,
And no matter what they say.
You are special.
Shine your light on them,
Bask in your glow and innocence.

And most importantly,
Know you are loved.
Know you are cherished.
I love you.

New Soul.

I used to be so scared.
Can't recognize.
The face that looked back at me,
Lived many lies.

Times have changed,
And I am here.
I've come so far,
No longer in fear.

To see your soul,
Through a new pair of eyes.
Is a gift from God,
That I can't deny.

Patiently Waiting.

Know that I love you,
Where ever you are.

Sure as the golden,
Morning sun,
A warm embrace.

Few things could be said,
That make one understand.
The power of love,
Burns deep in my soul.

I miss your soft,
Gentle hands,
Exploring without fear.

There is a time for everything,
And for now,
I can wait.

Patiently suffering,
To feel again.

Yearning.

I just want to love you.
And be loved in return.
I want to feel your heart,
Talk with mine.

I want to look up at the stars,
And see your name written.
I want to be away,
Real far,
And always be smitten.

I want to rest,
With your hand in mine.
I want to look in your eyes,
Two souls are aligned.

I just want to love you,
And be loved in return.
I just want your love,
No longer to yearn.



Constricted.

This journey of trials and legends,
Breeze of darkness and shadows,
Washing over me.
Spilling it's earthly blood on my hands,
Bright red dots fall on my white shoes.

Clean is a dream I cannot live,
Because I'm lost,
and I need you.

Blind.

If she never see's me for who I am,
I will not be lost.

She will go on searching again,
Destroying love has such a cost.

There's little one can do,
To change someone,
It's impossible in the mind.

When they can't see,
What they want,
They are lost,
Foolish and blind.

Stirs My Mind

Wind is howling,
Early morning,
Stirs my mind.

A new day rises,
Beginnings thriving,
What will I find?

Life's unfolding,
Days are passing,
Speeding pace.

I am running,
Sprinting faster,
But it's not a race.

Learning,
Yearning,
Is getting stronger.

Stars are shining,
Wind still pining,
Morning stirs my mind.
