Never

Standard

And I never want to

Hurt like that again

So

I have been fearful,

So very afraid.

One step

And I hesitate, my feet placed lightly

As I hold my breath before

Pressing forward completely;

And wait.

Eyes wide open,

Telling my tears to stay tucked away,

To wait.

Wait a little longer.

It is not in my head nor irrational

For those things did happen leaving bruises on heart on skin,

Not happening merely once or twice.

Over and over.

In psyche I go deep.

Begin once again.

One step forward and breath.

Wait and observe, Listen and feel.

Muscles coiled around heart ready to retreat.

Consciously release tension;

Release grip on self.

Exhaustion sets in every muscle.

Stopping. Resting.

Replenish heart and mind

And begin again

With tomorrow’s sunrise.

Beauty and joy seep into depths slowly and lovingly

Replacing anxiety.

Sweet dreams start to outnumber nightmares.

Ever so tenderly reanimating hope.

Revive.

One Way

Standard

This is a one way ticket.

I am going to explore

Everything I can,

Everywhere I can

And look at life

At every angle.

Cutting ties as I set myself free

And up i go

As high as I can fly.

A

360 degree view

As all my senses open to receive energy.

Upside down and all

Around

I see.

I feel.

I breath.

I smile.

You Are

Standard

And here it is

Right before you,

Beside you,

Inside you.

This greatness everyone speaks of

And searches for.

This joy and fulfillment.

Search no more.

Here it is.

It is you. All that you are.

All that you see and feel.

Every movement, thought and breath.

Illustriousness;

You are.

Here,

Now,

Before and Always.

In Front of Me

Standard

The sun rose gently today,

I am thankful for that.

Giving my eyes time to adjust;

Delicate light

Touches stone

And cactus.

Life around me

Stretches and yawns at once.

The birds join in

As they announce the arrival of day once again,

Happily

In synch with the natural rhythms of life.

The sun has peaked the horizon

And now burns my eyes.

For this I am grateful as well,

To set myself free of yesterdays burdens

And confusion

With breath and light,

For this is the world

Right in front of me.

Dreams

Standard

Yesterday.

What’s done is done.

This moment,

What is yet to come.

My mind keeps

Digging,

Burying

And wondering.

Remembering,

Creating

And forgetting.

Let sleep come none to soon

And carry me to dreamland

Where no one

Restrains these

Thoughts.

These imaginings and reminiscings in

Sweet, vivid colors

As I dance through fallen

And falling leaves in the deep

Magical forest.

Snowflake flurries.

My amusement and joy magnified

In kaleidoscopic colors and melodies.

Peaceful

Joy.

Peaceful breaths.
