Reminiscing

I am nothing but thankful For your accompaniment along the miles When my feet could not longer find footing And my shoulders stooped beneath the weight Of a thousand perceived failures and mistakes When I could no longer take another step I must have unconsciously sent out a divine flare Because then you arrived, thenContinue reading “Reminiscing”

Stardust

Only recently have I discovered That I am made of stardust too, Not just a haphazard concoction Of leftover, dusty ingredients Waiting to be selected on an abandoned shelf, But a unique, good-hearted human being Deserving and beloved as we all are Instead of an anomaly on the outskirts Looking in but never worthy ofContinue reading “Stardust”

Three Words

There are 100 ways to say “I love you,” I said each one of them to you Except for those three words Never knowing if they would heal Or if they would ultimately harm. Funny how we say anything But what we truly want to say, Because there are certain words That are etched inContinue reading “Three Words”

Drawn Back

I am always glancing behind Like an impulse, like a safety check. Do I have the strength to keep moving? Am I prepared to let go? Making sure my intuition reinforces What my mindless autopilot already knows, That whenever I attempt to lunge forward I am consistently propelled back As if flung by an invisibleContinue reading “Drawn Back”

The Reality of the Stars

There are moments when we are transfixed Pulled into a memory as if stolen from the present The way we feel when we gaze up at an evening star Mesmerized, awed, momentarily hopeful, and then… Fettered back down to the heaviness of the present Where the air is weighted, where life has broken our spiritsContinue reading “The Reality of the Stars”

Lost & Found

Lost is where we we eventually find ourselves Not from our external, but from our internal compass When the noise of opinion and expectation silences And the distraction of responsibilities no longer pulls, Is when we begin to listen to what we need, what we know Discovering the inner map leading to our breakthroughs. LostContinue reading “Lost & Found”

New Years Wish

May your heavily burdened shoulders be lifted May your tears fall freely with those you love May what is hidden be unearthed with clarity May you be guided by a purpose from above May your lonely heart begin to find healing May the road ahead unfold softly as you go May you see the magnificenceContinue reading “New Years Wish”

Walls Closing

I feel the walls closing in around the soft places of my heart Unwittingly, without permission, as if by unconscious command Whether to protect or to derail, I know not, dear soul, Only that the corners of my mind still connected to hope are fading And I am powerless to this unwanted fate. Maybe itContinue reading “Walls Closing”

Oblivion

In your eyes there is a glimmer of sadness And I will not pry, dear soul, I will not dig, Knowing, as you know, that we must keep hidden The desolate melodies of our human experience When younger hearts depend upon our strength. When the last lamps have faded into dark, When silence swallows upContinue reading “Oblivion”

Winter

The world outside is covered in a landscape of snow Hauntingly beautiful, callously cold, As if following the trajectory of my old, listless soul Winter winds whispering songs that only I know. There is melancholy in this season of frost Where we wander through the bitterness, aimlessly lost Like travelers seeking bridges we have alreadyContinue reading “Winter”
