Our Connection

We become one –
A feeling transmitted.
Confusion and arrest…
But you hold me tight,
Embracing me –
Smothering my anxiety.
Love Enfolding in my soul,
Bringing light to my darkness –
Together, we become whole.

The Beginning of the End

Your energy is my medicine,
As it fills my heart and my head –
Breathing fast,
Heart racing,
I will always remember what you said.

I feel you come near –
Embracing my soul my Dear.
Wrapped arms, wrapped lips
Into oblivion our toes dip.

I feel you seeping into my veins,
Our heart’s set off
As we take the reins.
Floating into oblivion –
The world crumbles and laments.
As we rise into the heavens –
Life as we know it ends.

Birthing our destiny.

Little Bird

I see the suffering in your eyes,
As little bird fills your head with all those lies.
Wings of grace – But another in disguise.

She sits on a branch, just out of reach –
But your mind she will always breach.
Her poison, she will leach –
As it drops on your crown,
Seeping into your ears with her sound,
Singing –

“Anger and frustration will be your demise,
As I fill your head with all your failed tries.
All your lies – you will pay,
For eternity, you will be your own demise”

Floating words, seep into your mind,
Your broken soul, you pay in kind.
As you die a thousand deaths –
With each one, you take your last breath.

Head drawn, eyes wept –
Mistaken steps – off the ledge you leapt.
A downward spiral of inner demons –
Robbing you of your inner dreaming.

What you fail to see –
Is your spark.
Your light –
Your heart shines so bright –

You shine like gold.
Like the sun –
Don’t let your heart and soul fold.
It’s the pressure of greatness –
Although, you feel it’s your

I know you don’t see this now –
The envy is masked,
By the pain little bird endows.
She keeps you distracted,
Head spinning –
Gut wrenching –
In circles you keep swimming.

The Wild

What is the purpose?
Of our connection..
I sit here in reflection.
Your whispers leave me wordless,
My heart warming – makes me nervous.
I have to admit,
I think about my sorrow –
Every failed relationship,
I lament till the morrow.
Then here you come –
Washing over me like a wave,
You are everything I crave –
A Mind and body misbehave..
This fluttering awakens my soul
This knowing – of being whole.
But I look upon this mountain
And I close my eyes and breath –
This part of me I need to retrieve.
I begin my walk, not knowing the perils I may face,
Finally breaking out of my stagnant space.
This foreign land –
Lush and wild,
My eyes are wide
As I begin my climb –
A scared little child
Stepping out into the wild.
I don’t know what’s waiting for me,
Certainly no guarantee –
The ups and downs of being free…
It will be worth it
This I know.
This journey is my path
Regardless of what I would have to show.

Web of Fate

Golden silk –
Spinning orbs of enlightenment,
A starlit dusting of solitude.

Naked fire –
Dancing on the edge of intuition,
Under the Black Moon of fear.

Dawning portal –
Honeycomb sky’s first blush,
Withering worries of consciousness.

Glistening dew –
Illuminating our wisdom of heart,
Soul-drawn carriage of pleasure.

Manifesting reality –
Hands shaping molds of Destiny,
Spinning the wheel of fortune.

Hands stretched out,
Almost falling off the ledge.
The truth comes out,
When you finally reach the edge..

Reflection of the situation –
Nothing but the frustration.
Karmic inclusions
Yet – Karmic seclusion,
It was nearly just an illusion.

I let you go
Because I needed to show,
Myself – how much I deserve,
Something so much better –
Settling for nothing lesser.

Cords cut, Doors shut,
My heart was running out of luck.
Promises broken,
In the end, I couldn’t hang on,
Nothing to show in the long run.

The hardest thing I’ve had to do
Was my emancipation from you,
To myself, I had to be true.
As tears run down my face,
Myself, I had to brace,
It’s time to embrace your erase.
