Slices of a Souldier- the heart

IMG_0032-1

You escort my heart out
From under me
Massaging and loving
Persuading and wooing
Charming and convincing
Subtlety turning
Toward cowardly convictions
Flatlining the beat you set in motion
Placing it on the pavement
While you disappear
Just for a minute…
Dear…
Seasons pass then reappear
My heart long succumbed
To your dead cold air
Another burnt strand of hair
Another scratch against the mirror
Lest you uncover your ear
Detecting my heart alive and vulnerable
These are the wounds
That etch me into a souldier

I need you

i need you

I need you

To wash my body with your tears
I need you
To behold my vulnerability
As I deliver it and care for yours
so delicately
I need you to be a true friend
Let’s become a living definition
Of souls bonded in existence
I need you
To take this cigarette
And share it with me
While we stay up all night
With the moon at our feet
I need you
To walk this jagged edge with me
To revel openly
To love me silently
To trust intuitively
That fear is only a mockery
A jest to prevent your bravery
I won’t betray the secrecy
I’m offering my fragility
To a worth I see in your soliloquy
I am what you believe of me
Through shifting times
And changing skies
I offer this truth
I know you need me
Just as
I need you

Young again

IMG_7607 (2)

Foundations built on lies

The sky is blue

You convinced me it was white

Now having eyes of my own

Like a baby being born

I am happy to be young again

Two were to become one

But you chose to blend with the rest of them

And scatter me to the sea

A burned lovers ashes

Sinking down to the fishes

But I rose to the surface

With hair of babies breath

And eyes of wonderment

I am happy to be young again

Cleansed from your darkness

Redefining what beautiful is
