Despair

Standard

He (she too) knows he is called strange
And beautiful in the same breath.

His (her) delight in life contagious

But then

Given time

And the right mix of elements

He (she does) crashes

And no words nor touch

Can reach him.

Blinded and numb.

He regresses.

He recoils.

(She turns within)

For no one can save him and he knows this.

They do not fathom the depths

Of despair.

(She knows)

He can hold his breath longer

For he knows at the surface

The darkness waits unbidden.

It always waits

Unbidden and unseen by others.

(They do not see it

They do not feel it)

And they lose patience

Going on their way

To fill their own void for they cannot hold their

breath any longer.

(She is still there)

And he resurfaces.

Returns from the untime

To be aware.

Skin tender, jaw tight

Legs jelly

And goes on.

Invites others from empty tables to join him.

Holds others when their arms are too full

And smiles

Because he is thankful they have not swam so

deep into the darkness as he.

(He sees remnants of shadows on her eyes)

Brave and Beautiful

Standard

Sometimes you

Bare your soul

And there is silence.

You do not know whether they think you are an

Idiot

Or they just do not know what to say.

So you wrap yourself back up knowing

That you are brave and beautiful regardless.

Let them be them and you be you.

There is no right or wrong in the realm of 

feelings.

In your heart

Standard

We are all born

with

Big love in our hearts.

Complete and bottomless.

We are perfect souls.

But some get trampled

And abandoned on this path,

This journey of life

And we learn to shrink love.

We hide it.

Bury it deep,

Or carry it in a cage keeping it separate

From our heart so as not to touch it

Directly.

But deny as you will,

You are stil love.

You are big, beautiful love.

And the work you do to try and hide it

Consumes every waking hour.

Every dream you dream.

Searching for love elsewhere.

Your love is good enough for you.

Open the cage

And put love back where it belongs

In your heart.

Humanness

Standard

So many people feeling less than.

Surrounded by criticism.

Held hostage by

Those who hold onto forgiveness

And definitions

As power,

Desiring unobtainable perfection through their eyes alone.

Sweet soul,

You are perfectly perfect being human.

Perfection is accepting your humanness,

Our humanness

And the whole of us.

Our so called flaws are part of us.

They make us even more beautiful.
