farther closer

My mind is a comet
Racing through space
Carried in the hands
Of a cosmic grace.

My words are dancers
Never to be seen
Moments of wonder
Pages in between.

My heart is the earth
Unwavering through time
Bearing every scar
Man could divine.

And you are my gravity
You pull me closer
Somehow ever by me
Somehow farther closer.

Cry, silently

I could hear it in your breath
You were crying inside
The moment was dark…
No reason to hide.

The heaviness crushed you
The weight of the sea
Spills forth from words
So easily.

Look at the stars
Their time becomes your eyes
They fall at your glance
And across your cheeks glide.

Next to a Dream

She helps me get
What I need
This girl
She helps me sleep.

I’m still sleeping
To complicate things…
Theres no need
Next to a dream.

How can
You wake
To a brighter thing?

This girl
She helps me sleep
She help me get
What I need.

Theres no need
To complicate things
I’m still, sleeping
Next to a dream.

After I was taken

My Beloved’s angels
Kidnapped me !
…into the sun
And brought me before
Our eternal birthplace.
As you filled my pages
With light
I grew blind and cried,
Is this why you chose
To tuck me away
Beneath your salty waters
And ancient flour?

Today I stumbled
Into my sisters garden…
I saw the Earth surrender
Beneath motherly fingers,
And I felt the rain
Dance to her hum.
Did you send
That Mocking Jay
To hound me
When a miracle’s
Veil of decency
Was lifted by the wind,
When just the day before
I was
So overwhelmed?

My Beloved
Has promised to me
The meaning of love,
I will be waiting for you!
I have learned to
Dress in my ignorance,
Holding, in one hand
The other
An unexpected friend.
