The Voice in my Box

  

For many years 

debilitating thoughts 

made a home in my mind

No room at the inn, door locked 

…confined 

I smiled in silence 

To an oblivious room 

All the while

My throat screaming 

For all the bad memories 

All the unfair nights

All the damn hurt!

the effects 

…and the cause 

Life played out and my lips 

….Obediently paused 

Until 

The drink of belief 

Made her way 

From my mouth to my feet 

Like a waking alien 

I have found my home again 

And all that was shrunken inside 

Lost the urgency to cling and hide 

Rising in hope

Yes this freedom speaks

Oh honey…

This freedom sings!

She flys on flames atop of wings

And the music is sweeter than ever 

My voice, my speakers

Reign out 

Bleeding a glorious color

Onto white corners 

of my 

…Newly born feathers.

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. 

  

Her Name…Determination

***Thank you Megan 

I want to be a flapper

A symbol of celebration
Dancing in the face of discrimination
Whistle and toot my way into freedom
Among the feast of governing isolation
Change my name 
Change my destination
Opportunity runs in the opposite way of the oncoming 
invasion
set my sights and continue to 
raise them
My eyes embrace a culture devoid of opposition
A deflating rigid system
Baptized into the ocean of 
born again
Frolicking with you into the sun 
Where good times stick like honey
…to a happiness that never ends

Day 2

  
Hello my gorgeous rockstars! Day 2 of 3 days and 3 quotes… Today I am going to pass this challenge on to three other badass bloggers without all the rules, just share some quotes that mean something to you- if you want- no pressure :))

The quote with Jax Teller below really spoke to me- not sure if it was Kurt or one of the other writers from SOA, but I read it and was like bam! How true it is that when I am broken I do not feel strong- in the midst of hurt I feel sad and weak and tired. Many of my experiences hang like a loose earring to my heart-they are there but too painful to wear completely.  When I do embrace these hurtful memories I can break again-and fast-but it is the comfort of family, friends, strangers-that act as a cushion to my fall.  Their love keeps me strong when I am not. Their love inspires me to continue to believe and not give up.

YOU are a part of that love and cushion, thank you! I know, believe me I do, that life can be super hard. Hard like slamming the pavement and we are down there wondering how on earth we will stand back up-let alone walk again.

When I was little I remember playing with my dolls and dreaming of being a mother one day-oh how simple things seemed.  I never ever imagined I would be wailing over my daughter’s casket, I never imagined I would be rescuing my children from the angry chains of an abusive marriage.  I have no answers, not even the ones I seek-but I do have love, I do still believe I will find my happiness in my heart. I believe, even though my life continues to unravel from how I attempt to plan it, I believe there is light and hope and love in store for me and for all of you too.

And I LOVE YOU ALL! So see, there is some love already in your day today :))

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 

  

Twilight of Intrigue 

  
Do you see

The amigos of three 

Brushing upon the twilight of intrigue

The starry night 

Gazing in our eyes

Comprised of moments 

Later whispered as memories 

Carried on the tail end of time

“Remember when it was you and I

In the silence of life”

Love, solace and a hopeful gleam

Brushing upon

The twilight of intrigue 

  

Reality Wednesday 

Hello beautiful people! I want to remind you all today, yes each one of you peeps and peepers, gods and goddesses, lovers and likers, every shape, size,sex, color..today I want to tell you…

  
Yes, you are- in every way! 

The battle that has given me the most wounds is the one I have fought with myself. I start to gain momentum in life and confidence then some little bugger comes along and squirts some poison on me-whether it be an insult of words or actions- I let the poison spread and I began to degress in my progress of loving, heck even liking myself. You know what though…

Time to squish those bugs! 

When people are mean to you it’s most often because they are mean to themselves and they are projecting their poison onto whomever is in their path at that paticular time. I am working to remember that I am awesome, and if someone wants to make me feel like crap- gotta squash that. Got to keep my head up high on this journey of self love! 


That is right! We are shinning stars! I have grown attached to all of you who have come to visit me here- so I can say with confidence that each of you is worthy of self love. You already have my love and admiration. You all are amazing! Smile, you are radiant and you are loved!!

Embrace your star and you will have no need for the dark.  ~Souldiergirl
