A Simple Matter of Ascension

Releasing yourself to the stars, you feel elated, vibrant, at peace. For once, finally at peace. Problem is, in doing so, you condemned her to walk through the mud alone. You held one wing while she held the other. Her hands reach skyward, a silent prayer on her lips. You fly in ethereal bliss, unaffected. […]

Beautiful Dream

Laying here thinking about you Open my eyes There you are before me Is this a dream? I never want to wake up Your eyes look straight into mine Brown in brown, earthy, perfect A slight smile Is that love I see reflected back? Your hand reaches out Pushes a lock of hair from my […]

Possessed

Violence Darkness Hard tug to the right Voices Whisper Head down on the ground Committed Controlled Say just what to say Power Ruthless All came with a price Favor Discord Push out all in mind Muttering Mumbling Trace shapes in the sand Obedience Subservience Tear out all my flesh Scared Crier Weak beyond all doubt […]

Dark Embrace

I can feel them, the icy cold hands, my inner demons. They’ve taken a hold and are pulling me down. I don’t think I can fight them this time. I’m not strong enough. Not only am I not strong enough but the old doubts have risen with them as well. What’s the point? What’s it […]

Breathing out a harmony of my own, I release it. It sounds like poetry, But in reality, the music is heartsong. Listen and memorize these words. […]

The Cycle of Life part I

There was all around you essence of something else. You pulled in and absorbed it. You realized now that […]

Night Owl

There’s an owl that lives on my property and he’s out there hoo-hoot-hooing all night long and I wish that for a night or two I could become an owl myself and sit in higher branches than he and see exactly what he sees. I wonder if his beautifully haunting call strikes terror in the […]
