Tiny thinks

Remember when you were there so far away?  And I was there just dreaming of you?   How many stars were wished upon?  How many hours were spent in thoughts of you?

Every night I’d place a kiss and a wish inside a paper plane and throw it wide into the space and time that separated me from you.

Every day I’d smile and converse, strangling the words of loneliness trying to slip past my lips.

Every moment a wish in time.  This need.  This ache.  This devotion.

And here we are.  In the nights, making wishes come true.  Pouring ancient and primordial ecstasies back in to the universe.

Creating new cosmic masterpieces of song and joy. Stretching out and folding back in.  Encircling this space and time with the melody of you and me.

Fire in my heart

I saw you, standing out past the horizon

Where forever turned into infinity

Bigger than all the life I knew

Taking steps away from this platform

Intent and desire the same breathing fire

With every step away from there

The distance remained the same

I reached the point I thought you were

At that start of forever

I stepped into this great abyss

this chasm that never ended

and always there in front of me

I walked until forever

I stumbled through a galaxy

named a star for you

Pushed forward through the dust that hides

and shields your light from view.

And every time I thought we touched

there you were, standing at the start

This intergalactic race that has no end

this fire in my heart.

 

 

 

 

 

Momentary

You can always tell when the weather starts changing.

It always sounds the same.

Cars go faster.

I can hear them racing for miles

blood gets to boiling.

I love these little breaks.  soon it will be cold again.

Snow will cover the roads.

People will drive slower.

Somehow, the noise becomes muted.

But for tonight, Heart’s are racing

and there’s desire burning and chasing them through the streets.

Passions are roaring and shifting gears

hellbent on living.

Its difficult to walk that straight line

Even more difficult to blend in

She can’t meet your eyes

She’s always looking in

She’s tired of fighting

She’s tired of pretending

She wants to crawl in bed

and dream

she doesn’t know how to be like you

You live in that bright world of comfort

while she lives in that dark cave of her mind

Somewhere she’s comfortable

Somewhere she’s wanted

Somewhere full of discontent and demons

She wants to hold your hand

even if she can’t feel it or see it when you have taken hold

guiding her through this unfamiliar maze

she loves you more for it

she loves that you try

she will try too

She can’t fail

she can’t die when she looks in your eyes

truth?

She loves you and you are worth the fear.

 

Muted white noise

Some Expectations

I want to say

Still alive and well

and I hold my mouth

biting my tongue

I’m swallowing blood

I want you to see

What I’m trying to say

There are no words

that could ever tell

the story quite so well

My teeth are locked

jaws are aching

Can’t you see?

What I’ve been saying

between the static

and the lines

Imagery and poetry

songs and hymns

worship

and sometimes

sometimes

sometimes

blasphemy and profanity

sacrilege and disbelief

where I devote

all that I’m not saying

just so you will see

what cannot be said.
