Our Lullabies 

​ I remember when I got high

And placed my head into the lap of your lost lullabies 
the kind that sing about the cloaked corners of life


Mama’s sad and daddy’s gone 
Hush little darling, the tears will stop before long 
The moon is on the slow rise 
The sun is losing sleep with dark eyes 
I know your Idling in the repeat of black days
But the solitude of the desolate cocoon 
Is just a nap before growth pushes you through 
Hush little darling, the tears will stop before long 
Soon you will be in the sky with me 
Unearthing lullabies 
Of how the butterfly came to be

Once Upon Our Time

  

My life is a story 

A peeling layer of liquid poetry

As the breadcrumbs 

fall behind me

Each time I grow

Is 

Each time you know 

There is more of me to follow 

I’ll be Gretel  

How about it Hansel?

Our words are building a foundation

For the most courageous castle 

One who has seen 

And felt 

Been on her knees 

When all she could do 

…Was crawl 

Now she stands 

With you and me 

Abducting a long forgotten glee

And it doesn’t make sense

But love seldom does 

Once upon our time 

Breadcrumbs and fairytale rust 

Take my story 

Not just to read 

…Yours, to be touched. 

  

Just like Us

Nestled in your lap

Lying in the coldness

No one else is here

Sounds of midnight twinkle like stars

The ones we cannot see

Hiding beyond a distracted city

Whose jealous buildings compete to meet the sun

And are melted before they ever do

Tonight I am one with you

We need not search for words

Our connection screams to rise

Upon those buildings where the birds nests hide

In the shadowed corners

Just like us

A pair of eternal friends and lovers

Curled into the secret of each other

A small drifting pocket

Against the eyes of the universe

Just me

Just you

We are the Midnight 

   
We are the midnight 

Crouching in hopes cobwebbed corner 

Sending kisses on trains to eachother 

Spreading dreams like whistles 

Calling them stealthily home 

We are the unsuspected believers

To boost and carry on for the one        …and for all the others

Grown up from sawed off roots

Making yellow from our blues 

Lifting soul songs to the night sky 

Praying for a star to carry the message 

Whilst passing us by 

It is our dark and we have blessed it 

While the rest sleep 

We write faith into their eyes 

Yes…

…We are the Midnight… 

  
 

Bring Me 

  
Bring me your good vibes 

Bring me your silkiest rope

Let us tie our dreams together 

And fly our kites of hope 

Bring me your pureness 

Bring me your love 

Let us coo songs of kindness 

Like the friendship of a dove 

Bring me your hand

Bring me your touch 

Let us start a poetic parade

Of new found romance 

Bring me your eyes 

Bring me your heart

Let us bathe head to head 

Like a fire resuscitating 

…what has been dead 

  

Loves Lurk 

  

I lurk in the forest of your heart
I touch my toes ever so gently 
Around all the pieces

You fear are 

….broken for eternity

          I am not afraid 

Of the dark and shadowed place

….Of all you have revealed

And still, all your lips hold sealed

I sleep in the depth of your soul

Known to few 

Hidden from all

I kiss its essence and paint               

          My colors 

To blend with your red and grey

I sleep inside

The genius of your mind

The depth it bleeds

          I bleed back 

Caressing and swimming 

Along the shores 

And far below 

This could be limitless

          And I wish not to go 

I gaze through your 

Wondrous eyes 

Straight into 

…what makes you mine

I gaze from so faraway

I gaze through 

my own dark 

…and hidden space 

I gaze upon your hands

That I may one day feel

The growing bond 

          That proves us real 

  

Play for Me 

  
Play for me

A song that morph’s…

A symphony

Rapture my thoughts 

Into a featherweight melody

Let me sit alongside you

As we flow our poetry

Into the magic of 

Black and white keys 

My head on your shoulder

Soothe this fallen souldier 

Oh acoustic warrior!

Play for me

Tangling beats with 

The bodies harmony

Gushing in an emotion

So wildly

Only by you 

Who can truly feel

My unsung tune

…The hues that spin 

My unkempt moods

I long to hear them too!

Play for me

And I…

Will melt for you 

  

Reality Wednesday 

I wish each post I presented could be positive and uplifting. But then life happens and I become the sun closing my eyes behind a curtain of clouds. All I feel is grey. I call it a funk or a slump. But that is life isn’t it? Not everyday is sidewalk skipping, sometimes we trip and fall- sometimes…I get right back up and other times, I lay there, against a scalding backbone and wait for my legs to regain strength. 

Either way, I have promised myself to be honest and authentic in this place– a collision of words from a spirit that is overcoming. And overcoming is quite a journey :)) 

  
Recently I had a slump funk and I shared it with my family here. I am overcome with love, moved by your words and truth. I read my messages and think “oh my gosh these people are incredible. They truly listen and they truly care”. So I want to thank each one of you…

Thank you so much for helping me! 

  

You are all my superheroes, armed with love and kindness, helping to rescue this souldiers sadness. 

I appreciate my family here so much. 

Today I say to each one of you:           You completely rock!!

So go now and rock on with your badass gorgeous unique selves! 

Love ya, SG

Fragility of Yesterday

IMG_3668

*This post might be hard for some to read if you have lost a little one*

This may not be very poetic but it is on my heart and needs to come out, so I am sharing- In the middle of watching a silly clip on you tube,in which the people decided to play a prank, a prank where a woman was pretending to die and the man was on the line with 911, who was walking him through the steps of administering CPR.  Of course the silliness was lost on me and in that instant my heart began to race and my body got hot-I wanted to scream but I just turned over, lying down and letting the pure pain fluster around my body and soul-like a wicked fast hummingbird trapped inside a cage-unable to fly and lose herself against the sky.

In the flicker of the CPR clip my mind had a flashback-and that is the rawness of a flashback-it really is one’s body zapping into another time frame.  I was suddenly standing over my daughters little body, on the phone with the 911 operator who was walking me through how to administer CPR to a baby. I kept yelling at her “It’s not working-she’s not breathing!!” Like the movies false hope I expected her to automatically start breathing again-but that did not happen. I cannot talk too much about it, years later it still literally rips me up inside.  I just really miss her today,I miss her so much. That flashback stopped me in my tracks, moving me  through the fiery faces of the stars and placed my feet above the small beautiful body of my precious baby girl-trying to bring her back to life, still not comprehending that she has gone…

Fragility of Yesterday

My memories come with a price

So I freeze them

My brain is my bartender and I am sayin’

“Put that one on ice”-

Unable to revel in the sweet times

I am frozen, with a fragile heart

and broken bones

Screaming above my daughter

In a flashback

of yesterdays mother

Alien 

I’m contemplating

Looking into your eyes
While I tell you your answers
While I coverup my secrets 
While I wash my face again 
And coverup my sins 
My youth burning brakes against
The daily process of growing age
I’m rarely what you see 
Or what you think
The heat that succumbs you 
Thinking it will never leave
Is condensed into one bead 
Of sweat against your t-shirt 
In the morning it has left you 
And when you ask you wait 
For me to tell you
How it is I never cry
