cry
me a river,
and I’ll
drown
in it,
till i learn
to swim
in it,
like its
mine,

i need to
know,
how much
salt
there is,
in the
ocean,
that i
wish
to call
mine.

fall
into this whirlpool
that is now
this me,

appearances
are far
from
accurate,

for
there
was
a time,

when
to create
a simple
ripple,

they
had to
throw a stone
at me,

now
your
reflection
is enough,

to cause
a storm
to the
roots,

ripples
outgrown
you churn
my being.

clouds
are said
to have
silver
linings,

i
for some
reason
like mine
to rain,

there is
something
exhilarating
so liberating
about that,

for nature
designed
its apostles
not just to shine
imaginary lights,

but to teach
how to let go
of what
becomes
too heavy to bear,

and the wonder
is in
the perfection
of that
act,

for there
is so much
beauty
even
in that.

Emotions
fail
to wear
disguises,

words
wear them
with much
aplomb,

I hide a story
amongst
analogies
of nature,

stars embedded
like random
strewn
pebbles,

you see
them not
with the eyes
you have,

and I smile
for I don’t
write them
for the now that is,

but,
for what exists
beyond
this time.

One day
I know
for sure
you will,

read them
with
a new
set of eyes,

and you
won’t laugh
at my
illiteracy then,

for you’ll
see
them
as stars,

in my,
those
them
eyes,

just
the way
I see them
today,

shine
bright
in yours
tonight.

Pic: Self, Moon and Shadows

lost in
a world
so full of people,

lost in
a maze
others call a world,

lost in
a storm
of thundering thoughts,

lost in
the present
that must hold a future,

lost in
the clouds
that mystify light,

lost in
the reality
of a saw called time,

lost in
a web
that destiny hath weave,

lost in
a dream
promising a glimpse of you,

lost in
all the ways
I had never ever tried before,

lost,
just to be lost,
and maybe,
somewhere lost too,
I will find you.

i break
the rules,
undress
you,
beyond
the skin,
till i reach
your
effervescent
soul,

for that’s
where i
found you,
that’s where
i see you,
that’s where
i know you,
and that’s
what your
existence
is to me,

eyes
have
limitations,
but mine
were closed
when i
saw you,
when i
felt
the strength
of your
presence,

some still
can’t see,
with open
eyes,
what i can
with mine
shut,
some call it
the power
of prayer,
and
maybe
i would too.
