Love creates in abundance
Also, having the power to rip apart
Within contained the breath of life
Sometimes leaving us gasping ...
Finding within this love
All we ever wanted, needed . sought
Our hearts so vulnerable
Rational is left wanting...
Love heals our afflictions
Wounds us beyond any measure
Enveloping of treasures
Never is it truly gone
Even death can not... (more)
A few years ago I started taking walks at all hours of the night. My sleep patterns were really off and I could only lay it down for brief periods before I was up again…hot as a Cape Canaveral Lift-off. Menopause sucks…pre…post…or anything in between.

Combined they gave me just the false... (more)
Do you hear me?...
The wind carries my kisses
Upon your eyes they rest
The sun awakens shining down
Birds singing the last song
I sang into your heart's longing

Attached with strings weaved
Through joy and sorrow
Unbroken consecrated commitment
Echoed within each breath pulsating
Given existence extinguished
Humbly gracing our everlasting truth...

and smile for a change.
Dance and feel the breeze,
to help forget the pain.

Think of that spring you once lived,
before you drowned in this grief..
Need NOT despair
if you've been crushed.
Rewind your memory,
to the times when you were a bud.
Think of all those people
and light up your face.
For bringing back those dreams,
will refresh your days.(more)
Somewhere in my heart, lies a wounded child. She cries at night, alone, and sinks into the shadows of my soul. She sings a tragic melody of love, untouched and life un-lived. She is the bittersweet truth that haunts my shattered past and draws upon the blood of my survival.
Won't you walk with me awhile and share the sustenance of compassion? I have traveled from far away just for a breath of kindness to toss my windblown hair from my solemn and scarred, stone face. There is love to be found. I am more than what is seen, though still a lost soul, looking for your guidance to even fathom... (more)
...no choise but to eat it, to deal with it. you feel it slime inside of you. its sealed in there for life. you might feel you have healed but trust me you haven't. everytime you think about it, it saddens you. you lived this nightmare and it still haunts you. it wants to consume you. the fear grows on you. your self-esteem seems to disappear so you try to gain it back. but everytime the pain throws you back. you lack in knowlege on how to get back on track. its drawn on your map, it seems to follow you and it will still be there tomorrow. but that doesn't mean you should live today in sorrow (more)
