Wind Chime

Cravings
They come and go
Sometimes weak and sometimes strong
I dread the moments which are stronger than I
Intriguing feathers are light, yet painfully heavy upon my back where I carry you

Memories left to osculate
Pondering thoughts chime delicately as your wind blows through mind
I’m lifted all over again and rise in hopes not to whither
And if I do
I’ll return all over again
My essence of calm
My sleep
Deep, deep sleep
With you

Isaiah Writes

Tags

, , , , ,

Cartoon-like words
I sit on the edge of his bed to read his story
My heart is sparkling – I wish you could see it
His writing
Neat and simple with the perfect touch of elegance
I imagine his bountiful brown eyes dancing on the page as he writes away
His mind ballooning images throughout
He can barely contain his thoughts
He smiles
I know he does
There is a shadow of his gleam clear across the page
He is so proud
And, so am I
But, he didn’t finish the rest of the story
He never completed it
I cling to the paper in hopes to capture the rest of his words
What happened?
You can’t stop now – where is the rest?!
Almost immediately, I figured out why
Why he stopped here
He wrote his perfect part I, you see
Only for his Mama to continue what he wanted it to be
This is his gift to me
Isaiah writes!

Moon

A calm moon will do you good
But beware of her sun who strings on high
She will delight you in playing your favorite tune
And make you cry when she sings her lullaby
Moon, where are you?
All alone in the corner of the sky, I see you there
All alone
Why do you fret a grand worry? Please come down so I can see your beaming glow
Snow will fall soon and I will need to go
Please don’t make me wait oh moon in the sky so high
I have waited – crushingly waited
Tapping your stars
I wait
Patiently wait
Moon, do you love me?

In My Corner

Tags

, , , , ,

There you go again
Rambling in my thoughts
Wrestling your way through
And here
Is where I find you
Clumsily mudding your existence through my door
I’ve already told you
I will have no more
Go ahead and go away
No, I’m not upset
For I have learned to flutter – I’m free!
And sometimes, I float
Please, run along
Toodle-loo
Run your way
Because my heart takes in no strays

My Feet Will Fail

Crushed and broken
Too busy to be scared
Searching yet never finding
Looking for a place to rest
I’m looking for someone to comfort me
In hopes to tell me it will all be okay

But he is nowhere to be found

Exhausted and confused
I keep stumbling in the dark desperately trying to create my own light
I wait for it to shine
But it is all still dark – very dark
Where is my help
There are no friends
All have vanished

Lonely, I kneel to find Him

He is still there – waiting for me
He has been waiting on me
Watching me bang my head over and over again
Dripping sweat and tears for no relevant reason at all
I was so blind
Full of pride
Full of me

I feel Him now – He never did leave me - I would have left me

My one and only hope – He is the light I have been missing
Neglecting, rather
My tears flood the room I sit in
I ask Him if He still loved me even after all of this
He then showed me an even greater love – vast love
A love only He can give

I feel peace in Him

I’m no longer tired of walking nor am I afraid – He is still there
Sitting in the dark – He stands by me, guarding me, loving me
Desperation – gone
Confusion – no more
Tired – He gives me strength to keep walking where my feet fail

Unsure

Unsure, unsure
Oh heavy heart stop feeling unsure!
You’re going to break the back of your very heart from all that scattered wondering
You are so confused
And allowing yourself to feel so
Stand up, now
Come on
You can do this
Return to the matter which exists
You
The, now
We’ve all heard this saying over and again, “Live in the Now”
Yet do not know how to live in this thing called, “Now”
Therefore, what does one do?
Hmmmm
Let me think a moment
How about trying to live when you breathe
Try it
Then tell me how it works out for you, dear
Now, inhale…..

Poem – Untitled

Tags

, , , ,

Forgiveness is a beautiful thing
Lightweight and blessed
One suddenly feels for the first time what it means to be caressed
Counting the days and feeling angry
A bitterness which tortures you daily
Don’t let it
Breathe in
And then out
No more wars
Let someone in
And love who you are again
Pick up your pen
Write that note
The person you are writing to
Greatly deserves it
They have waited very long
Do it before it is too late
