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.

Part 2

It can be said of the wind,
That mad it may one send…
Lover to neither stranger nor friend…
Fooling time in her pretend.
And as the wind may go
And I … move along
I’ll wander wondering how
Indifference holds a tongue.

Were I a kiss upon your brow
Wherever you may be,
For a moment on such skin
God has spun so delicately,
I’d find refuge from the wind
Until the wind has taken me
Until again my friend,
I’ll wish I was a lover of thee.

Far into the temple of time
My refuge awaits in kind
There I’ll wander aimlessly
And court words foolishly.
In every language ever heard
I’ll sing and stumble words,
And disavow the aged mind
Between shimmering singing vines.
