I miss the days of lost in cerulean and clouds,
even though searching for you came with a cost,
my mind ardently invented you as I lie on the ground.
moments screamed past me then, and there’s no getting them back,
yet I feel fulfilled when memories rush in,
blessed, some would say to forget what I lacked.
a path was forged, one I so desperately needed,
the voice inside me tasted like screaming –
to most it wouldn’t make sense but free, my friend, isn’t always freedom.
And then there was light.
Those are someone else’s words,
but I felt them run through me,
I watched in awe, as power
In my time – is all I heard.
Then the storm moved in and surrounded me,
created a blindness towards
my search for understanding,
Washed in clouds,
cold air across my face,
red curls blowing everywhere,
and a giggle began from deep inside of me. Clouds!
Let him decide.
Change was here.
What I Would Have Shown You
Yes, you, Wind!
Am I too close?
Push me away,
Or slam against me;
I need to feel: here.
i hear sunshine
although the tone
too low or far away
to devour or identify.
into the world
and they come
from your eyes.
a gentle smile
given in part
for those blessed
to be near you
and those who
trust your heart.
i yearn, dream
knowing one day
life will continue
as it was meant be.
I wear my heart
Heart on my sleeve
Sleeve: means out open
Open to new beginnings
Beginnings; where the past ends
Ends the rejection felt
Felt when he chose someone else
He, impossible to control
Broadening in stoic strength
Luring her outside; pyre taking hold
Feeling the pursuit of the waves
Moon man, she’ll do what she’s told
Highlight those pearly shades
Illuminate her portal, as your story unfolds
a canvas for dreams
clouds beautiful, yet employed
each one viewed with expectation
some weightier than others
a hush-hush reality
thankfully, I’m floating, too
Be who you are
Show me how we’re okay
Like the darkest cloud
In a sky of blue
Prove to me
They’re beautiful, too.
Celestial clouds part ways
Any color works
You’re beautiful to me
Trying is effort
Softest sigh of relief
Float with me
Swirling freely through
Light, immaculate color
Bright spotlight dance
Falling into you
Softest of billowing
Like a fantasy come true
Wistful innocent searching leads him,
Beyond dusk’s long lambent sky,
Towards a field for gallantly sitting.
Finally, left alone for quiet musings,
Pondering their perchance meeting,
And fantasizing of a redheaded queen.
Whatever monstrous storm you escort,
Be aware that I contain determination.
Fearless disbursements of strength,
Withstand forces of a cimmerian sky.
Calmness shall dismount here soon,
Predetermined fate will then smile.
Accelerate the tempestuous rain,
Peaceful contentment surely awaits.
Wishing you were here tonight
Riding on ferocious clouds of fire
Won’t change anything about today
It only ignites my uncontrollable desire
Our quiescent moments
Clearly, celestially written
Seeking you in a cerulean sky
Today, blue rediscovers contentment
Knowing you’re here
No matter your form
Proves that I’m adored
Closing in on me
Finishing my day
Dark shades prepare
Allowing them to wash
Over my fears
Leading me towards fate
I should be peacefully dreaming,
Instead my mind is easily consumed,
With thoughts of gravitational mystery.
