Display

Standard

The dead no longer care the view,

Whether brilliant or dull hues,

For in ashes and bone

They no longer roam.

Merely the living as they grieve

At the grave

Care the worldly display bringing comfort

Words cannot relay.

Only

Standard

They try to reach him (me)

But

They do not know how.

He is lost (I am lost) only in this realm;

Found out there beyond.

I see them (he does too)

They do not see us.

And his voice sounds like

Music, silence and heartbeats.

They only know words.

More

Standard

There are no words to write.

No words to say.

That is okay.

There is more beauty than can be explained. There is more space between than can be fathomed.

More sense.

More healing.

Do not force what is not meant just to fill a space.

Let it be itself, let it be free, unchained.

Let it flow onward and away.

There is peace in nothing to say.

No more to add.

No more to take away.

Continue in stillness.

Exponentially

Standard

Perpetually learning

To unlearn.

And this is life.

A heart that sees and eyes that blink.

An ever steady soul flowing.

Evolve.

Expand beyond thoughts,

Beyond this word called sanity;

Creating worlds without boundaries.

Reaching. Pushing. Pulling.

Exponentially exploding.

Becoming only to undo

And

Remake

Evermore.

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.
