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…

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

Her Heart

Her heart, it beats deeply
Her heart is fathomless

She loves fiercely
She is love

Though it may have scars from life
They are not deep enough for her to give up

We all have had our heartaches, and breaks
But we are still here, fighting for a chance at real happiness

That thing your parents have from fifty years of marriage
Knowing that someone loves you as deeply as you do them

Her heart, it beats deeply
Her heart will grow

Sleeping Kiss

There once was a fair maid with a long main of curly red locks
She was wandering the forest until she got herself lost

Laying upon a hill of the softest green moss
Quickly she fell asleep, not giving it another thought

And on that fine day, a dragon cavalier was out hunting just for sport
He came upon the maiden, it threw him out of sorts

He’d never seen such beauty in all the land far and wide
Walking to where she lay, studying her as she sighed

His mind was in a whirlwind, he couldn’t even think
He was so parched he had to take a drink

Her lips tasted like candy, honey-sweet and so very soft
When her eyes fluttered open, the breath in her lungs caught

For arching over her was a man with a handsome bearded face
Wearing the reddest armor that she had ever seen to date

She knew right at that moment, he was of the dragon’s keep
They were the saviors that protected all the land and he was
grinning at her, she couldn’t help but watch, she didn’t make a
peep

And when he spoke to her, her heart began to race
She couldn’t help herself, she reached up and touched his face

He rescued her that day, returning her to her parents unscathed
A fortnight from then, they were wed, to live happily ever after in
peace

During their life, they would reminisce about that fateful day
The Sleeping Kiss was a fairytale that they told children when it
was time to sleep

And with that, the story had spread across the land
But it had changing so much throughout the years, but the story
was the same

The Flame in the Willow

The willow was relaxing one beautiful spring day
Stretching its branches as the breeze fluttered away

Birds nesting high up in the tree, as mothers fed their hatchlings
A girl was out that bright day flying a kite lofty through the trees

She felt as if she were up there, floating, feeling free
The willow looked upon her and instantly it knew peace

Hearing her squeals of laughter, the smile upon her face
He wanted to make her happy, protect her, to have her visit as she, please

Willow didn’t know that feeling but was content with it all the same
Days turned into months and graduated into years, she would always
come to visit, and as time passed her passions changed

First, she was into climbing upon his sturdy arms, perching there for
hours staring at the stars
Then, she starting reading, leaning upon his stalk dreaming the day away

Finally, she brought a man with her, enjoying a picnic underneath his lush canopy
The man got down on one knee and to her great surprise opened a tiny box and asked her to be his wife

He heard her tell him yes a hundred thousand times and at that moment he began to realize
It was love that he had for her, it was the flame in the Willow burning bright within, that
gave him so much joy

The moral of this story is love is there so take it in, don’t be afraid to show it, or you might miss out on happiness
That I have no doubt
