fierce light

Image

 

i’m in an incubator

anxiously chipping away

at the candy-coated shell

 

an armor of hard won

beliefs that were and

are all incorrect

 

those last moments

of holding on to the

stale, disgusting air

that once imprisoned me

 

spinning in timeless-ness

seemingly never ending

another and another

just rest now…and wait

 

the work is finished

i lie here in a pile of newness

from the center is the only

real calm

 

tiny and fragile    

yet not contain-able

a sweet breeze

reminds me that i am still here

 

born to the truth

fierce light of my soul

my heart and my eyes

await the grand plug-in

 

 

i see.

the deafening sounds

you keep in

deserts deep and dry

engorged in the pretend silence

whispering in my ears

 

screaming with your eyes

lakes around the world

dry up and ache for you

cracked earth reminds 

me of my heart

 

you’ve hidden it all so well

in a pocket here

trapped in a muscle there

insane

from the rage

 

roaring in pain

relinquishing control

it all stands

quietly

in the corner of my eye

magical and

brilliant

cutting and

carving

 

into the

future

into the

now

 

reconstituted

feeling

all fresh

and fancy

 

wires

uncrossed

undone

neatly bundled

 

necessary

kindness

hearts glowy

and expanded

 

loveliness

smells new

sweet like

baby feet

 

 

8/21/13

when i let go

 

all benefits you

calling out your name

laughing all the way

into my heart

 

didn’t see you coming

wasn’t looking anyway

life is comfortable

either way i look

 

none-the-less

i cannot stand here

and watch a

merry-go-round

 

either get on

or go home.

the ride sometimes

makes me sick

 

 

dubya

 

you love my quirks

i love your moods

 

you let me in

most days

 

i knock

no answer

 

remember….

we have things to learn

 

picking locks

and cat burglary

 

you- singing to me

calling me, texting me

 

i haven’t left 

you or your words

 

warrior of the earth

queen of the light

 

sensual dreamers

sensitive givers

 

my heart  feels you

i’m pulled to your core
