Shards

Though the mirror is broken
The shards still reflect back

And what you might be hiding is revealed
You can hide it from yourself for only so long

Like waves they come crashing back
Welling up like a forgotten love that has left so long ago

But the sun refracts causing the glass to eliminate your soul
Warming you in ways that you thought weren’t possible

And at that very moment in time
Peace washes over you, cleansing, purifying you inside and out

It will carry you through
Till sorrow touches you once again

And once again you can gaze into the shards of glass
Because they are the windows to your soul

Cosmic Night

Jupiter rises upon the blazing sun

Sunkissed I always think of you

Can you feel the warmth emanating from my soul?

Will this life tease me yet again, eluding, as I seek you

The songs are always the same, melodic

Sliding down my cheeks

Whispers of what could be

Hit me in waves, haunting my nights

Stars and Moon Light

I never knew the stars were so bright until I gazed into your eyes

The moon’s glowing beams bathing my heart warming me inside

The gentle breeze blowing my hair, I can feel your caressing touch

As the shadows shrink away before the dawn comes to play, leaving me alone in the dark

I feel your presence, it is always with me though you are so far away

Everyday you are on my mind, as the hours pass away

Oh dearest heart, love of my life, my very breath of life

Everything will be alright once you are here with me

Dream, Love Will Get You Through

There is nothing more powerful, amazing, priceless than love

It is forever changing, evolving, growing, unconditional

It is there for you, when you are in need

It is one of the few things you can count on

Though it is taken for granted, and broken from time to time

It is amazing to me that your heart can survive

Though it takes time, the hurt fades and you are only left with memories

Memories from a life that you couldn’t possibly have lived

Trying to save something that has turned to deceit

There may be tears from the enormity of it all

But the tracks fade away and loneliness will fall

That’s when you begin to realize

You are worth more than that, you shouldn’t settle for less

The epiphany strikes when you aren’t looking

You deserve better; loyalty, kindness, compassion, honesty, and above all love

You are love

As love is you

Journey of the Dragonfly

As they drip down in unison, who will win the race?

Leaving a trace that signifies your broken heart

Welling up from your soul

Sorrow is playing in your mind

Though you have forgotten him, he will never truly cross your mind

Perhaps, in a nightmare that interrupts your dreams

Eyes wide open, now you can truly see

Life has a way of hitting you when you’re down

Makes you stumble, even fall

But I will dig deep down, find the strength I need to fair through it all

To keep my eyes open, learn to heal and grow once again

I have lived a life that I was not meant for

Losing my identity, me

Ready to love again, to give it freely

Without strings and falsehoods, truth spoken loud and clear

Never will I settle again, never will I salvage what is lost

I am like a dragonfly, my soul zipping through the air

Warming rays of light, shining down upon me

I am truly grateful, now that I can see

That I am now me, and not someone I was not meant to be

The Sun, Soul Searching, and Life

Everything is as it should be, no regrets

That’s what they tell you in a flat, monotone way

It reverberates into your bones, into your brain

But as always your heart says “No!”

“This isn’t the way life should be!”

Never should you tolerate settling, “Never!”

Not for the deceit, not for the absence of love, not for the lack of physical affection, “You are worth more than that”

Freedom never looked so good on you

You find yourself hearing your heart speak the words, though you have heard it before

“You are love, soul shining bright, beautiful heart, let love in, you are worth it”

You are the only one that has the control to take it into your being or deny what you truly know

Tides of Change

I wish I could escape upon the gentle breeze
I wish I could skim my fingers upon the waters shallow

To feel the way I used to
To feel whole, not separated

I have been blessed
I have been tested

The norm has changed, and changed once again
The tensions rise, but we are steadfast

We are alone though our cries gather, unite us
We are brothers and sisters, though we do not engage

Our hearts beat and our blood sings as we rise above
Our differences and our prejudices dissolve as we conjoin

We will not let fear make us blind, when we can clearly see
We will not give up because it is strenuous, when you feel like you nothing more to give

I wish I could sit under a willow tree and read the day away
I wish I could dance in the rain and sing along with you…

Untitled

To my heart I will be true, said the girl to her empty soul
And when you open up again, will he fill it, keep it full?

To touch, to feel, gaze into your eyes, think of the possibilities
Maybe your soul will find it’s way back home, with a familiarity

Her heart is healed, though the scars remain hidden deep within
Longing for what her parents have love forever sent

Strong, fierce, loyal till the end, she found herself again
Only wanting to find her missing half, finally to become whole

But she is happy, completely free
The only thing she needs to do is finally take the leap

Wishing for only happiness, she rises up like the phoenix she is
Her soul’s a shining beacon shining from within
