Sidewalk

Floating toward you

Your gentle hands

Cradle my soul

Liquidated Liaison

Done with this
Muse
Like all … things
This too must
Come to an end
Served its purpose
No longer inspiring
My head
My heart
My body
Therefore it must be
Disposed of
Out with the recycling
Someone else may
Have use for it
Be on your way
Out of my bed
I can’t afford
To gain
An attachment
To this
Temporary convenience

The Day I Woke Up

It wasn’t after

You destroyed our home

It wasn’t after

Your constant berating

It wasn’t after

You put your hand through the wall

It wasn’t after

I swallowed those pills

It wasn’t when

You called the ambulance

It wasn’t when

I was revived

It was when

You finally left

It was when

I finally had a moment to think,

About myself

It was when

I realized

I could be happy

Without you…

Love’s Truth

Rarely have I heard

Truth in what was spoken to me

Like an extinguisher

My flames were doused

By words

Replaced by rage

Until I gave in

Lovely words

Fraudulent, falsities of a predator

Weakening my stance

Taking away something in me

Replacing love with fear

Words… just words

Words no longer hold

Complete validity

Meaning lies behind actions

Love is in the hands,

Holding the heart,

Guiding me

Towards the stars

Towards the truth

Words the initiator

Truth in the words

Propel love’s momentum

A controlled explosion

My flames allowed to burn

Unafraid…

Because the truth of love

Allows it to be so.

Where…

Where do you go when

Your mind is racing

Your thoughts are

Taking you to unfamiliar places.

Do you travel to

Distant  places where

Reality doesn’t exist

Time and space are a myth

 

Or does your heart

Pulse with love,

And the once quiet yearning

Finally breaks loose

 

Does the anger

The sad regret

Seep from your pores

Allowing you to mourn

 

Where do you go

When you need

To be free…

Finding a Voice

There are so many of them.

Not schizophrenic,

Internal diversity.

Full of opinions,

Full of shit perhaps.

Sifting through

The baggage

The positive and negative

Words spoken

True or false

Compiling self,

Deleting self loathing

Building character

Finding a Voice

Speaking out loud…
