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

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

girlonbeachSo 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

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

spiral of stairsYou 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

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

Blank pages in front of me
Time for a new story
About my transformational journey
Now i find I can clearly see

I review the pages of what I previously wrote
Years of our life together bound
Within paper of images and notes
That I collected when you were around

It’s been awhile
Since I have seen you
To be within the sight of your smile
Since my eyes have enjoyed you

We each played our role
As our pride got in our way
We forgot to connect from our soul
I know my mind and fear got in my own way

  
Heartbreak to some is a passion crime
Today the sun’s beauty burns
My thoughts as I lose track of time
With each page of us I turn

I can never forget
I can always forgive
I will never regret
The crazy way we did love and live

With you my heart flipped and lept
I was reminded of my beauty
It’s time for me to accept
The closing chapter of us and set you free

I transform
I look within
While my words form
I start to write a new book again

  
The air whistles a new beautiful tone
Warm embrace as I smile with every beat
Of my heart as I know am never alone
Within my own shadow I am complete

I am glad you were
A lesson for me to learn
As my feelings start to blur
Into new passion I yearn

I am reborn into someone better
Like a butterfly
The past in every word and letter
Full of love as I say goodbye

Blank pages in front of me
Time for a new story
About my transformational journey
Now I find I can clearly see

its a rhythm and a flow
within in every breath
i slowly began to let go
in waking life and in death

i took the blue pill
down the rabbit hole i went
now i can see what is truly real
and the lies i never meant

the light filtered through
my skin
it shined like new
and a new journey now begins

the light revealed
the truth
breaking the seal
covered in lies from my youth

i existed
and i was dead
i coexisted
within the lie that was said

i believed the lies of the blind
the lies of misguided souls
and i find
the truth as it unfolds

there has been a shift
i will never be the same
my heart smiles and lifts
the lies and earase the blame

i create the life i live in
i am responsible for all that is
so it is now that my life really begins
now i understand this

the darkness falls away
i reconnect above
now i enjoy each day
now i embrace love

now im no longer aloof
no longer isolated
i live and speak my truth
the pain has faded

we all have the power to be free
we all must love within
to be able to give it and be happy
time for a new world to begin

come with me down the rabbit hole
you dont need the blue pill
just love and forgive from your soul
then you’ll be the beauty of what is real

It was unheard
Of a love like that
Between a bird
And a wild cat

Yet I spread my wings
You quietly hunted me
Out loud my heart sings
You admired my spirit so free

One day
I perched on you
Sang a tune that made your heart sway
Then off I flew

Later that night
I came and laid with you
Curled up in your fur with delight
Sad when sun shined and off I flew

Many nights like this
Then we were transformed by the moon to be human
We had our first kiss
We embraced our love again and again

Moonlight waned into the sun
We transformed back
Ended our loving fun
Then your friends began to attack

Off I flew
Singing as I was carried off by the wind
My heart beat true
For my loving tiger and my best friend.

Wane of the Moon

Posted: March 15, 2015 in Art, Love, Poetry

She stands in the rain

As her heart yearns

She watches the moon wane

As she burns

 

Stillness

Overcomes her heart

Among the mess

That kept them apart

 

She reaches out

She looks to him

Left with doubt

All too well she knows him

 

As he is too young to hold on

She slips away

As they watch the setting of the sun

Her heart sways

 

He tries to love her

Yet life pulls him away

He says to come over

Her lust leaves her with nothing to say

 

Time seperates their desires

Space inbetween

He reaches for her

His attempts are unseen

 

She stands in the rain

As her heart yearns

She watches the moon wane

Forever for him she burns
