shattering like glass…

walking into misery, watching it unfold, it envelops me
like a cloak, I

drown from within, you were just here, how could
it have been…understanding loses meaning,
as heart breaks into a thousand
pieces

shattering like glass, spreading out through the air,
diamond bits rest in my chest, throat stuck,
tongue thick, with
a mind
blinking
into
a
mist…

traveling back in time, unavailable, so will settle
on memories lying dormant
in mind, and
heart

though
they
do
tell the story of your love, divined

deep as the ocean is wide, you did your best, while
dealing with your pain
like a mime

and, while goodbyes are unnecessary, I would like to tell
you how much I love you,
one last
time…

I call to the wind

in times of great distress, I call to the wind,
a friend, and constant companion when times are
grim

less known than before, part of the paradoxical
nature of love and loss,
shown

as part of a life lived

in its myriad fabrics and textures, feeling them with zeal,
I reel, and find a home in all
that’s real…

no hiding, now exposed, raw, vulnerable, and ready
to let go

of the pain, and sorrow, and simply sit in the magnificence
of love in all its shapes, and sizes,
bestowed…


I am at the Oregon coast this weekend, and it is beautiful. The above pic and poem were inspired by my time here, which I always treasure. Growing up by the ocean was a gift, and now living relatively close to the ocean once again fills my heart. Wishing you all a beautifully blessed Sunday, and coming week.

I love you…

heart broken into a million pieces,
agony inside, the time in-between
now and then, set aside

for a moment, like an eternity, dreaming
of other scenes, can’t possibly be reality, pulling
me down into this demise…

watching your hand leave mine, fingers outstretched
into another time, breaking solidity,
besides

the filament continues to flicker, wavering
in the night sky, pulling me towards belief, I
sigh…

remembering your face, holding you in arms, wide,
trying to make another sky

and portal to an alternative world, where the two
remain together, not ever bidding each other
adieu…

instead, remain together they do,
by simply saying

I love you…

a love gleaned…

tiredness is present, like a gift from the heavens,
head in the clouds, I dream of the absence
found

in-between the margins of peace, tranquility, and
the pain bound

together

like dreams come to me, instead of sleep,
filling the space with images profound…

listening to my heart first, becomes
the knowledge bestowed, controlled, not,

instead,
the loud drum,
and thrum,
vibrations
come

towards the vistas trees, in need of sanity, destabilizing
the wishes seen, and, providing us all with a
love gleaned…
