Reignite

Standard

On occasion

I feel I am but nothing.

The smallest slice of an ember;

Emitting no heat nor flame.

Those days I foster love.

Regenerating what is left of me,

Knowing that the tiniest ember

Still has potential to flame once again

Given oxygen,

I breathe.

Reignite;

I burn.

Hit

Standard

You

Knocked the breath out of her.

Hands hit skin,

Words hit heart.

She was fearful

Of everyone.

Scared to speak.

Scared to move.

To say the wrong word,

To give the wrong look.

Her legs always shaking step by step.

Heaven forbid a tear should fall

(You damn crybaby)

Her voice so small

(Speak up! Speak up! But only when I tell you to!).

Eyes on the floor.

Walk so very softly.

(Become the wallpaper upon the wall

Your fingers never touch)

When She breathes, if she breathes,

Hold it, listen.

(What the hell are you wearing?)

Do not move another step

Until

Television volume up high

To mask the sound of her

Existence.

(They walk among us)

The controllers and abusers,

The controlled and abused.

And Momma always said

You never know what goes on behind

Closed doors.

Emotion

Standard

Every emotion
Felt in a lifetime

Crashing in my gut all at once.

You and I

Face to face.

Loss for words.

Our voices faltering anyway

At the enormity of emotion

In a touch,

A gasp.

And breathing is enough.

Our hands know the way,

We know the way.

The thrill.

Euphoria ignited.

And there we meet together as if

On the very head of a pin.

All thoughts dissolving,

Look no more.

Space-time blooms evermore

And hearts erupt in unison.

Tangled.

Submerged.

You and I

Every inch of skin

Pressed.

Heartbeats thump through

Veins;

A morse code coursing

Unending.

Body language

Perceiving intuitively

Where to go,

When to move,

When to breath.

Stillness absolute.

Hush

Standard

Touch.

Only a heartbeat

Between us.

Altering senses.

Time collides within.

Skin feeling what no other

Has felt.

Eyes

Seeing that which no other has seen.

Energies

Vibrant

In the hush.

Words have no meaning, no form,

No need.

Breathe.

We soothe our restlessness.

In the stillness we move.

Synchronized breath becomes us

As we disappear.

Realities merging

To unbecome.

Exquisite rapture with each movement

In the hush.

No longer a mirage.

Muse

Standard

Look at life as if your muse.

There she is right in front of you,

In the sky, the earth, the creatures around you.

The air that touches your skin.

The fruit that grows on the trees.

Look and see. Breathe and feel
Everything,

Everyone

As if new everyday.

So mysterious,

Magical and deep.

Fall in love again and again.

Magnolia Trees

Standard

The Magnolia trees are

Blooming. The flowers are stirring.

I watch the shades

Of color change on each leaf

As the sun rises.

As the greens brighten so

Quickly in response to the

Slightest touch of light,

As they come to life.

Anticipation trembling from

Root to top in realization there has come

Another

Day to grow.

The squirrels chitter.

The butterflies dance and the

Trees keep company as they do. 

They sing in sweet harmony,

“Breathe. Breathe. Breathe.

Open your eyes and heart.

See. See. See.”

Speak Again

Standard

And some come into your life to see

The aftermath.

To see you exhausted and easily startled.

They do not know you are spent from fighting.

From being strong for so long.

But you know,

You know.

You will speak again

When you are ready my darling.

Until then be at ease

With peace.

Breathe and see yourself.

You have to remind yourself,

It is only the echo.

It.

Is.

Only.

Echos.

The past is the past.
