I Knew

Standard

I know who you are.
I am here today
Because of you.
I beheld your Angel wings
At dawn,
When you thought you
Were alone.
I heard the rush of air as you
Unfurled them.

You,

When you thought you were unseen,

In your

Glorious beauty.

I saw a teardrop fall
As you tucked them away,
Then you turned
And came to me.
Thinking you were alone.
I did not need to see them
To know.
I knew
who
You truly were

The moment

You spoke my original name.

One Day

Standard

One day.
One beautiful day
She will come out to play.
But for now she prefers
The dreary rainy days.
Days when distant sounds are muffled
By the raindrops gentle pitter patter
On the leaves over head.
Those days no one can hear her tip toe
Out beyond her comfort.
She feels safe
Blending into the gray,
Into the shadows.
If she becomes frightened,
She
Can quietly work her way back
To sanctuary without
Drawing a passerby’s
Glance.

Momma’s Violin

Standard

Momma would pick up the violin

When her heart was breaking.

And the strings she would play

Until her fingers,

They were aching.

And her tears

Made the melody

Flow from her soul.

Even though I was young,

I felt it in my blood.

The love and the hate.

The longing and yearning

As it echoed from impossible

Depths.

Each note

Bleeding

Out

From the

Fissures

Of her

Heart.

Forever

Standard

I must write today.
I must paint the sun
In rhymes.
Or not.
I must urge you to taste the
Rain
With your heart.
Become the air as it dances with
The leaves of the trees.
I ask you to
Close your eyes
And
Let a cloud roll
Off
Your tongue.
Sense the heat of the sun
As it plays on your skin.
Take notice as the ink amuses itself in your

Mind,
Leaving every word a memory indelibly

Impressed upon your soul.
Forever a part of you.
