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

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

Image

He’s not here
The bright eyed
Rosy cheeked
Little boy
With black hair
And
A face that knew
Nothing
But love and laughter
I look
Deeper and deeper
Into the looking glass
He’s nowhere to be
Found
Gone forever
Lost to
Time
Or so I believe
Because of the face
That stares back at me
Gray
Burnt
Worn
With eyes that glow dim
Their light extinguished
By the weight of
Knowledge
Desire
And
Time
I can still feel him
Somewhere
Lingering in
My mind’s eye
Forever dreaming
Pretending
Wishing
Hoping
I hope
I wish
He’d come back
Breathe new life into me
Restore my view
Of everything
Help me
Believe
Again
He is as far
And as close
As the reflection before me
Yet I will never see him again
That sweet boy
Like flowers in Spring
Instead
All I see are
Ashes
Gray
Burnt
Worn
Ashes
I close my eyes
Can’t bear to look at me
Not now
Not this
Time
And I tell myself
The only thing I can
It’s okay
We all fall down

Poetry

Ashes

stand-up-fi
Pick yourself up
Grab yourself by the collar
And pull
With all you can
With all you are
With all you can be
Stand up
You are here by the love
Of those who came before you
And for the future
Of those who come after you
No time for tears
But shed a few if you must
No time for regrets
But take one last look behind you
No time for fears
But know your weaknesses
For the harvest is here
You just need to ask for it
Reach for it
Cry out for it
Embrace the light
That rains down around you
But you’re too blind to see
Blinded by your own arrogance
Your dependence on yourself
Your darkness
So stand up
Ask
Receive
And you will not fall again
Never like this
Because He said so

Poetry, Writing

Stand Up

precipice-fi
Searching no more
I have found it
The truth of me
The essence of my spirit
My purpose
It stands before me
In its enormity
And grandeur
Just being this close
It drives vigor
Into my veins
My mind
My soul
I have but to let go
And let God
To fall into it
Fall where I may
But I don’t
I can’t
I won’t
I cower
I cling
To fear
To comfort
To stability
My heart screams “Go”
My mind whispers “Not now”
And so I stand
Motionless
Lifeless
On the precipice
Of living my dream
And
The life I only dream of
