The pain of walking away
Stays with me
But how could I evolve if I did stay?
How could we be happy?

Loving you was a metamorphosis
I never knew that loving you
Being lost in the taste of your kiss
Would transform me into something new

Tradgey struck
Loss greater than any love can heal
Here we were stuck
Life so painful and surreal

You lost a piece of you too soon
And I lost you
Time for the cocoon
Time to transform pain anew

There is no work here
Just waiting and processing it all
The cocoon makes you face fear
I wait wrapped in a shelled ball

Of thought and grief
Embracing the here and now
So still we are in our beliefs
But most evolve somehow

The time is coming for me too
Wake up and break free
Leave my cocoon and see anew
Butterfly wings will sprout from me

Before I can fly
I await in my cocoon
As my old self dies
And my new self will emerge soon

Until then I lay still
Letting us go in time so slow
Processing everything I did feel
Understanding it was best for me to grow

I feel like I can’t say what I wanted too
I feel like there is a wall
I’m not sure if it’s me or you
Who falls and who stands tall

I want to grow and expand
I want to connect
But all I understand
Is how to disconnect

Inside my fear
Begins to uncoil
Within my hearts surface it nears
And stains and soils

Within the longing for a kiss
Are heartbeats speaking at quick pace
I feel with every lover this
Void of a lonely space

You came so close
I thought I had this
Figured out the right love dose
But there is something I did miss

Cause there is a gap
Between heartbreak and happiness
I’m stuck in the inbetween trap
Longing for my lovers kiss

Out loud I shout
I think I know the error but I don’t
I believe I will figure it out
But I realize I won’t

With me lacking love for myself
How can I give you more
For now I’m a book on a shelf
To be read and explored

One day I will be ready for you
But today is not that day
Love is waiting for me and you
We only just need to find our way

Growth and expansion
Is not an easy journey
But it does ignites passion
Here & beyond my current reality

It’s time for my story to change
For my heart to soar & set sail
And exist within the loving & strange
Time to remove the masked veil

To see my life without fear
Live without limits or hesitation
Appreciate all that is here
Enjoy the loving sensation

Rid of the gap
Between heartbreak and happiness
Time to be released from this self trap
Just lovingly embrace my lovers kiss

One day I will be ready for you
But today is not that day
Love is waiting for me and you
We only just need to find our way

I had a old ugly tin bucket, so I decide to paint it to give it some flare with some colored spray paints and just had fun with it.  I have to say I am rather pleased how it turned out!

I love when that moment hits and the creative forces take over.  Here are samples of my newest work that I was compelled to embrace and transform from a feeling …to brushstrokes on canvas. Inspiration is a beautiful thing…

IMG_2358This place
We walk in step
Rushing to keep up with the pace
Until we trip

The world seems to fly past
As we sit still
Nothing was ever meant to last
Some of us hide and ignore what we feel

manoverlookingthe mountainwithcloudsYou just have to stay the course
You must go the distance
You must fight the opposing force
You have to battle the resistance

It’s temporary this uncertainty
This confusion and/or fear
You need to clearly see
The future you desire is very near

You mustn’t give in
Your time to be reborn, renew
Into a dream life is about to begin

Time is a tool for you
To overcome your fear
To learn the lesson and begin anew
To be better and take on the rest of the year

clockBut time can also be the enemy
As you can be infiltrated
By doubt and uncertainty
And fear saturated

Within your mind’s struggle
You can give in or work to be more
All life’s challenges you can juggle
You can walk through your dream door

You must go the distance
You must fight the opposing force
You have to battle the resistance

It’s temporary this uncertainty
This confusion and/or fear
You need to clearly see
The future you desire is very near

So you mustn’t give up on you
You mustn’t give in
Your time to be reborn, renew
Into a dream life is about to begin
