Still
After the time and tears between us
I am washed in starlight
When your eyes meet mine
Still
I become weak
Unable to find the words
As your mouth curls into a smile
Still
In those quiet moments
When the storm in my mind rages
It is you my heart reaches for
Still
It is you
My dream made flesh
I love
Still

Poetry, Writing

Still

Image

Your arm around mine
We walk these streets
A thousand broken hearts
Like petals beneath our feet

Eyes everywhere
Every one fixed on you
Each proclaiming silently
You their dream come true

Moving through the soul sea
Undeserving beside a queen
I see no other but you
A vision of love in green

Poetry, Writing

Green

Brief was my reign
In the kingdom of your heart
Cast out from its walls
In tears did I depart

No new throne awaits me
I seek no new crown
In dreams I find asylum
I rule over memories now

Still I will watch over you
The heart I swore to defend
Lest sadness besiege you
And bring your smile to its end

For eternity will I lament
All that I was and was not
That cost me you and crowned me
The King That Time Forgot

The King That Time Forgot

You came to me
In the gray today
Wrapped in a sunbeam
That pierced a cloud
In the way
Only you can

You spoke to me
In the gray today
Moved me like thunder
With just a whisper
In the way
Only you can

You gave to me
In the gray today
A river of joy
Flowing from my eyes
In the way
Only you can

You proved to me
In the gray today
As earth does the rain
I long to be loved
In the way
Only you can

In The Gray

I picked them up
Tried to find their place
The pieces of me
Shattered and broken
By a world that loved me
But not in the way I needed
Just when I thought
I had it together
The mirror of life
Showed me otherwise
My broken self
On display again
For the world to see
I cursed it at first
But not anymore
It brought you to me
Broken pieces in hand
You filled the gaps
Smoothed the edges
Mended me
With pieces of you
Held in place
By your love alone
Just the way I needed
Now I am not afraid
Now I like what I see
Our reflection
In the mirror of life
It comforts me
The world need not love me
You are all I need
For the rest of my days
Let it be known
I am broken no more
With you I am whole

Poetry, Writing

Broken No More

I wait for you
Each second more agonizing
Than the one before
Glimpses of you
Drip through the clouds overhead
As the sea breeze blows
Carrying your warmth
Over the lines of my face
My ears are filled
With the song of the water birds
Dancing their sky dance
As I wait
For your golden kiss
To make its way
On to my skin
Turning my night to day
Pouring light
Into my world
And hope into my heart
Come soon
I beg you
My soul is waiting
For one more sunrise

Poetry, Writing

Spring Sunrise

Walk with me he said
On this road with no end
Led by love alone
Take my hand and don’t let go

Walk with me she said
In healing me
Find the healing you seek
Learn who you are meant to be

Walk with me he said
Through good and bad
Triumph and loss
I will never leave your side

Walk with me she said
In my smile and in my kiss
See your true worth
My king among men

Walk with me he said
Fill the gaps in my spirit
The cracks in my person
Make me a better me

Walk with me she said
I will light your darkest hours
Shade you from the burning sun
Be the balance that you need

Walk with me they said
With one voice and one mind
Leaving all that was behind them
So their journey together began

Poetry, Writing

Walk With Me

It moves
Across the distance
Between us
Brings each breath
You’ve let escape
Into me
On it you ride
In memories
In daydreams
They wash over me
Remind me
Of your skin
Fragrant
As spring rain
Of your smile
Refreshing
My soul itself
It stirs the trees
Bending
Rustling
Singing
The sweet sound
Of your name
While tall grasses
Sway
And new leaves
Dance
It finds me
Here
In the space between
Dusk and dawn
My eyes closed
My heart open
Silently wishing
It blows once again
Bringing more of you
To me
Until I have all
And we both can savor
This breeze
Together

Poetry, Writing

Breeze

I go on
Even when
I have nothing
I am empty
I am hurting
I go on
Being strong
For the many
For the few
For you
I go on
Saving
Shielding
Believing
Until I can’t
Like now
Right now
I need
A healer
A believer
A savior
To mend
To restore
To protect
All that I am
My goodness
My flaws
Me
Save me
Please
But in the end
As it began
Who sees
Who cares
When a God
Bleeds
When a hero
Pleads
When Superman
Weeps

Here
I have always been
Here
Right here
Inside of you
In the pit of your stomach
Filling you with fire
Stirring your soul
Setting you ablaze
With passion
With life
Giving you strength
To crush mountains
To grasp heaven
Yet you stuff me away
Time and again
Make me pure fantasy
Figment of imagination
Still you call on me
From time to time
When you need me the most
When you need
Fire
Power
Fuel
Only to stuff me away
Again
Set me free
Cut me loose
Let me soar
Don’t fear me
I have always been
Here
Right here
A part of you
It is our time now
Take my hand
Spread your wings
The earth must know
The heavens must hear
The sound
Of the
Dragon Man’s Roar

Poetry, Writing

Roar of the Dragon Man
