Breathe Life Into Me

You broke me
You emptied me
You make space
To breathe
New life into me

Release

I’m letting it go
I’m letting them go
In all forms and wrappings
And disguises they come
I know their essence
I know their pretense
I know the spirit
In which they come
So I’m releasing it
I’m releasing them
I’m removing the culprits
From my presence
That kept me bounded
In shackles; strangled

Fading

A once vibrant and blooming flower
Must now shed her layers
As the structure that once contained her
Is no longer fit to serve her
She has outgrown this way of living
Her form is now changing
So gracefully she surrenders
To the process of aging
She has served her time, and served it well
She endured the elements of the changing weather
Though brief her time, it was well served
There’ll be new flower blooming
And soon she’ll be forgotten
But she doesn’t mind
Her time is up, and she could use some rest

Taking Time To Heal

I’m taking time out to heal
From rips so deep
I’m left wasted, so it seems
Could use some stitching where I’m torn
Don’t mind the scars that it will leave
Just patch me up I want to heal
This heart’s not made of steel
I feel it bleeding out it’s soul
And, soon it may turn cold
I don’t want to turn cold
So I’m taking time out to heal
So I’m no longer bleeding at the seam

Soaring

We are no different than the birds
Soaring, flying, reaching for the sky
Above the noise of the world beneath us
We’ve a bird’s eye view
What’s there to discuss
We are leaving behind all the fuss
Not a care in the world, we’re flying high
So high, we can almost touch the sky
I can’t lie, I thought I died
Didn’t know us humans could really fly

Take It To The Sky

In a world so imperfect
We are blessed with perfect skies
Laced with perfect sunrise
These eyes can’t deny
That just beyond the horizon
In the distant sky
True brilliance lies
So take your cares to the sky
Allow your mind to be unburdened
And your heart to heal, at the breaking of a new day

Years Of Innocence

On years of innocence I reminisce
On how lost in my mind I was as a child
I played a lot, and had some fun
But my inner world was such a treat
I retreated there when I felt defeat
I was too thin-skinned to cope for long
So I created places kind and mild
To unwind, unravel and come undone
I imagined being an adult, such magical beings
They could come and go, and do as they please
Unburdened, unworried about being punished
Or the punching bag for grow-ups woes
They could curse and swear with not a care
While your poor soul trembled in fear
Such adults I strive not to be
They are scary and frightening
Unevolved beings
Who kept me lost in my inner world
To retreat and escape their screams
Now looking back, they weren’t years of innocence
Just a lost child with dreams of escape

Yellow

Yellow is clarity
Positivity and sunshine
Yellow is the color of what I strive to be
Yellow is fresh, it’s light and easy
It’s not red, consume by passion
Nor is it beige, dull and boring
Yellow is just mellow
Just like me

Uranus – The Trouble Maker

You always catch me by surprize
Never failing to burst my bubble
Is this how you get cheap thrill

Like a lightning bolt you’re always charged
Loaded and ready to bring the shock
I can’t take much more before I crack

When will you learn I’m not a rock
And finally cut me some slack
Stop being such a pain and take a nap

Ready For Real Love

You came to me
In a dream last night
That took me by surprise
You walked up to me
Then sat next to me
And kissed me featherlight
This is a shock to me
You don’t speak to me
But in my dream
You had plenty to say
This is weird for me
Please don’t stalk my dreams
If in reality you’ve nothing to say

The Secret

All is well, I’m feeling swell
Though rain clouds dwelling
Above my head
Could surely bring hell
I hold the secret to survive this spell
So let the clouds swell and the sky spills out
But, I’ll never break this shell and tell
Until this life I bid farewell

A Moment Of Grace

A glimpse of hope, a moment of grace
A splash of colors across the sky
And, in this moment, in this place
My feet stood still with my face to the sky

Lost in this moment, lost in this place
A hollow inside now filled with grace
As a calm wind brushed against my face
A once lost soul now found her place
In an array of colors across the sky

Others walk by, not knowing why
I stood still with my face to the sky
But, in this moment, in this place
I found magic, I found grace

I Wear My Heart

I wear my heart on my face
For all to see
With no makeup or lipstick
I lay it bare
Unashamed, unafraid
Of the content it shares
Like screwface and grimace
It will make some sigh, ouch!
Don’t get me wrong it’s not all filled with gloom
There are butterflies, and rainbows, and sunshine too
It weathered the seasons and it all shows
Spring, summer, autumn and winter blues. It’s all true
We all weathered these seasons in our own way
But, I can’t help but wear mine upon my face

The Challenge

In the absence of noise
I hear silence speak
louder and clearer
Than ever before,
Do you remember me?
You’re still trapped
In the violence
Bothered by the tyrants
Thou you speak of such stillness
You’re not quite balance, that’s your challenge
Finding your balance

Random Rhyming

Keep On


You
Crucified
My emotions
Hoping I’d sacrifice
My soul devotion
For foul words
Spoken
But I keep on
Coping
You can keep on
Talking
Soon I’ll be walking

***

Confused


You
Musing
You had me
Lockdown
Using
Mad skills
To confused me
But
You had me confused
Thinking I could be used
Shattered by abuse

***

Thinking


I’ll
Let you
Keep on thinking
Thinking I’m in a coma
Fallen victim
To your mind control
While I’m only resting
Playing dead
To survive the trauma

***

Focusing


Focusing on
My inner blessings
Knowing I should keep on
Trusting
Paying attention
To these lessons
So there’ll be
No second guessing
When it’s time for
My resurrection

New Conditioning


You
Thought
You had me
Humbled
Naked and
Exposed
So I would
Stay in this state – hurting
But I no longer
Fear
Shadows
Been reprogrammed
With
New conditioning

Buckle Up

Buckle up
It’s going down
I’m shutting out the noise
I got a date with my inner voice
It’s been calling me for quite some time
So I must attend to it on the double
Or there will be trouble
I’ve been shutting it down
And putting it off
So now I’m about to lose it

He Called Me Bipolar

He called me bipolar, and that wasn’t very nice
He’s just a mean disgruntled man, with a heart of coal
Thinking attacking my emotions will give him control
But, I know his type, he feeds on sweet souls

He called me bipolar and it still weighs on my mind
That he gets such pleasure from being unkind
He so casually silence me, each and every time
Like my feelings doesn’t matter; holds no value like dirt

He called me bipolar and I’ll never forget
How easily he dismissed me, knowing my fragile state
I could show him bipolar, but that wouldn’t be kind
He’s already a very sad man, I’ll pray for his soul

Flower Power

I could write all day about the power of a flower
These alluring creatures breathe life into my being
But such graceful creatures with such delicate features
Are only meant to be enjoyed for a season
So for this reason, I’ll sit still with these creatures
Take some pictures of their features
Breathe in their nature and treasure this moment
For my time is limited with such exquisite creatures

Jupiter – The Bountiful

Jupiter the bountiful
In blessings and lessons
Will hand you fortunes
But, not without lessons
So don’t be misguided
By all the blessings
Because Jupiter go big
With both blessings and lessons
And, if you’re not careful
This bliss could be fleeting
Turning your blessings
In nothing, but tough lessons

Living For Today

Today I’m living
For today
Gonna step outside and
Play away
Forget the worries
That’s what I say
I’ll be chasing all cares away
They’re not welcome here – No way!
That’s all I have to say
Today

I’m breaking free
Of my old ways
Don’t wanna be chained anymore
To mistakes of my yesterday
That I can’t change anyway
So today I’m living for today
Keeping worries all at bay
To resolve themselves another day

My thoughts will no longer
Wonder away
On events and things that I can’t change
When today is here waiting on me
To embrace this day and be wild and free

Old Wounds

Life is strange
It keeps rearranging
Yet I remain fix
In this strange place
Who is to blame
Should I be ashame
That I can’t change
So I remain the same
So attached to the pain
That I gave it a lovely name
But there’s no fame, no reward or gain
For staying stuck holding all this pain
It’s time to let it go or burn in flame
Wouldn’t it be such ashame to be buried with all this pain …

Looking so shiny and new
No room for gloom
Just take in the view
A vision of beauty and sweet perfume

Saturn – The Fear

The fear of rejection
Will keep you stuck
Stuck in your head
And out of your mind
Blind to the truth
You cannot see
This kind of love
Is a rare find
Time goes by
And you’re still stuck
In your head, waiting for the right time

Pluto – The Obsession

Is this obsession or love
That’s got you so sick
Sick and twisted
Looking wasted
You could be blacklisted
Or even arrested
If you don’t take control
Of this love sickness
Is this obsession or love
That have you possessed
Demented, bewitched
Are you under a spell?
If true love existed
It shouldn’t be this twisted
Just keep your distance
So you don’t get blacklisted

Neptune – The Dream

What once seem so real
Was only a dream
A scheme, a thief
To steal one’s esteem
It will catch you off guard
In broad daylight
And in the middle of night
Invade your dreams
Like a laser beam
It will penetrate your being
Dissolving boundaries and consuming your thoughts
Then slowly fading and leaving you lost

Chiron – The Cut

Gash, slash, slit
People cut deep
Run, walk, hide
To save your soul
The moon is full
Your heart is heavy
Birds fly high
Light as a feather
