Blank

Standard

And her mind,

It goes blank

Before you can blink.

She is smiling

All the while hating herself.

And they keep talking

And talking

And she keeps laughing.

And she excuses herself to the bathroom

Where

She stares in the mirror

Wondering if she is really here.

Why all this noise?

Just noise

Coming from mouths who don’t care

What a heart beat is.

This air;

The air that leaves her lungs

As she whispers your name,

As you press against her

And hold her steady.

As you take her where she needs to go

Without hesitation.

We sit in the quiet and

Hear the stars resonate

In our very bones.

It’s all ok.

Breathe in unison.

You don’t even need to say

It is all okay.

Unafraid

Standard

The

Bird keeps singing his song

As I approach the tree

So sweet

The melody.

I stop and close my eyes to listen

Appreciatively

Letting this music swirl around me.

And I open my eyes

In spring sun glare

Taking a few steps closer.

He stays unafraid

And his song is all I hear

Now amidst this chaos in my mind.

Forgetting human language for a time

I am steady.

Brilliance True

Standard

Hello Milky Way.

I have been longing to see you again.

These city lights,

They block your luminosity

And leave me stumbling to find my way.

I struggle to find direction

Without stars to guide me.

Artificial radiance shines bright like a beacon

Until you get close enough to

Realize their lack of heat within.

I close my eyes and begin again,

Having faith in my own intuition.

I know the truth.

We know the truth.

The stars are ever steady

With brilliance true.
