“Peak”

The purpose that belies your iridescence
Represents the candor of your faith.
Against every pull of gravity,
And against every pull of weight,
With bare hands,
You touch hands of Grace.

As fearlessness drives your will to strive,
A card dealt by demons sets you straight
To look into impatient eyes
And a heart that fails escape.

But, adversity to advantage you seek.
Weeping at the losses that pose you weak,
But only to set eyes on change
What once was a downfall
Has now become a peak.

“To Belong”

Touch my heart and feel the ice
Like a chill after a rain
As clouds cave the sun
It loves like a broken song
A beat skipped
A beat heavy
A beat long
But it loves mighty
It takes hold
Eyes like Eckleburg
Seeing meaning
Meaning strong
While broken it has measured
Moments good
Moments bad
Hear it in the silence
Steadfast but weary
Hopeful but sad
It loves like a broken song
A beat skipped
A beat heavy
A beat long

My heart wants to have peace
A piece of mind
A place to belong

“Lullaby Lies”

A mad soliloquy
Dances idly
Sending shivers
Sending silence
In a train on an island

Noses poking
Ears soaking
Sounds of words
Unspoken
Reaped by a heart broken

Dying light
Shaded sight
Absinthe colored gleaming night
Reddened eyes with surprise
Lullabies laid over sweet lies

 

“Nerves”

To construct my words
Of which I cannot bite
I am taking breaths
Every second in sight

Tongues tied so true
I stutter and trip
Under some spell
Lash after lash
Of whip after whip

 I sonder
I pace

I cannot recall
A fate of love
With a most passionate fall

“Two Moons”

We are two moons.
Solar masses of love.
Sacrificing light for a passionate night.
Surrendering to the shadows.
Surrounded by galloping stars.
Hanging celestially side by side.
Perfectly disrupting the balance of nature.
The waves may crash but we are still.

Be still, be still, be still.
My love.

“One Destination”

A journey by will.
On an endless mile of love.
One destination.

OR

One destination.
On an endless mile of love.
A journey by will.

I could not quite figure out which sounded much better so I posted both. It’s funny how interchangeable it is. It makes it sound very different in my head when I read it against each other like so. How does it sound to you? Do you feel the difference as I do? Maybe I will leave this as is and leave this to be the whole piece? It’s presentation is rather nice, now that I think about it. I am not sure if there is a term for this form. But, I like it. Yeah, I think I will keep it like this. I also really like the title because despite it maybe having a double meaning when the first and last lines are changed, it ultimately has one theme and one meaning to me – that love is a mirroring effect when shared between people. Hence, one destination. One destination is one meaning. One mutual pact and understanding. Just one. Lastly, we make out love to be this huge complex thing, but if you look at it this way, it’s just so simple – a simple. but mind blowing, essence.

“The Universe That Is You”

Constantly forming constellations in my mind
Of all the dreams you are to me

But, nothing else follows.

I am just a dreamer in love with the universe that is you;

Connection of beautiful stars,
Collection of matter beyond words,
A system only glimpsed by human discovery.

There is but so much more.

Have you ever just explored the feelings you had for someone, trying to connect all the dots, all the reasons, for how your feelings came about? Trying to fathom what it is that makes the person you love so clear in your mind everything you had ever wanted? Obviously not a perfect image, you tell yourself, but it comes so close that it feels like a dream and it feels as if there is nothing more than just them – simply just them. You come to realize that they are too complex of an idea to limit to words, that they are just infinite and not one absolute form of measurement can comply to make everything that is abstract about them be seen and felt by anyone else. It is a unique thing, this feeling and this way to love someone. It can be nauseating and it will permeate throughout you like a sickness, but one that you just cannot see yourself experiencing any other way. You enjoy it and you let it overcome you. I love that I can feel this way and be swayed by emotions so gallantly, even when they aren’t physically in my presence. Man, that is a love that goes beyond scripts. I don’t know how else to explain myself any further…
