Glow

Standard

His glow in the dark heart.

That is how I find him

Lifetime to lifetime.

Drawn to his heat signature with sensors

Internal.

Pulsating senses;

A beat unique

Underneath it all.

A calling signaling our unspoken names.

Unite.

Untie each others minds from tethers and chains;

Worldly restraints.

Stop.

Here in the vibration of stillness

Is the cure.

12

Standard

Pine needles

Falling to the floor.

The tree quit taking water,

No longer thirsty.

The New Year is calling;

The clock strikes 12.

Auld Lange Syne

As I wipe tears from my

Eyes

For the loves lost.

(Thump goes my heart)

Grateful for every breath.

This year went by

Like all those past

And the quicker they go

The older I get.

They Too

Standard

I used to run and hide when people hurt me.

I gave away my power without a second thought.

I used to give them my tears and time.

I am learning to turn around

Gently.

To forgive and honor the soul of each heart and mind.

To give more tears and time

To joy.

To see beauty in both dreams and reality.

I am learning they too are afraid,

They just show it in a different way.

Reading

Standard

Read a poem.

Read it again

And again.

Leave it be

And return.

Keep reading,

Immersing yourself in each verse.

Pondering.

A sequence of thoughts pulling

You into

A

Myriad of emotions.

Seeing something more.

Feeling something more.

Every time you come back to the words

They seem to have grown

In depth and width.

Unending rhythms creating a

Cosmic beat within your heart

And mind.

Expanding creation,

Human metamorphosis.

Wake up.

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.

Word

Standard

I have felt every word

He writes.

I collect each letter;

Capital and lower case,

Exclamation points,

Question marks and all.

I put them in my heart.

Little folded notes of love and disdain.

Magic spells to remind

Me

I am not alone.

And I tiptoe and

Dance to his lyrics

When I am solitaire.

Sometimes

In the forest

Under the moonlight too,

With a passion free.

Just me

And his

Smile when I close my eyes.

Tingling and giddy I cannot help but

Fall into an endless spiral.

Down into the

Moss beneath my feet.

Secret bliss.
