Thorny Words

Standard

Hold your words quietly,
Peacefully
In your mouth
Before
Putting breath
Into them.
It is better to let
The thorny ones
Dissolve on your
Tongue,
In silence.
No matter how painful it may seem for you

To contain them.
Thorny words grow into uncontrollable Monsters once released
Wreaking havoc on hearts and souls.
Poking holes in hope.
Creating stones and
Destroying peace.
Weigh your words wisely.

Desolation of Your Soul

Standard

In the

Desolation of your soul,

Wandering this ghost town
I tried to find you.
I traced the drops of your tears in the
Red,
Dry dirt.
The wind began to blow
And the grit,

It
Began to hurt.
My heart began to race

In anticipation.
I lost sight of your trail

Yet
I kept searching
To no avail.
I was caught up in the blaze
Of the scorching sun.
I knew what had to be done.
On hands and knees
I could no longer see.
I began to crawl and feel my way

Instictively.

I closed my eyes and listened.
I heard your sighs falling
Above the roar of the
Storm.
I wonder if you can hear me
I wonder if you know
You are not alone.

A New Sunrise

Standard

I will stand steady on the shore
As the storm rages in your soul.
I will stand steady with a light
Burning fierce
Burning bright
Until you crawl upon the sand
Spent and relenting
Exhausted from the fight.
And when that time comes
I will lie with you
In the

Aftermath.

Together
We will set our eyes
To the East.
And with open souls,

With open

Eyes,

Greet
The birth of
A
New
Sunrise.
