One does not know true agony until they have loved and lost.
Nor does one know true joy until love has been restored.
The heart speaks without native tongue.
If another’s heart speaks back, embrace them,
With body, mind and soul.
For it is not often a broken heart, once again becomes whole.
My mind sways back and forth,
A tree under a storming sky.
Afterthoughts strewn about,
Branches of regret and loss.
Nostalgic over both pain and joy.
Embrace the past to change the future.
But we cannot go back,
We are trapped within our minds.
But with each new seed we plant,
Things that never die.
Words, like memories,
We mold them, shape them,
Nurture them and watch them grow.
As in all things,
Let the good out weigh the bad.
Let your mind’s forest,
Lead you forward in life.
But don’t forget to look back,
And remember what lurks inside.
Humanity’s biggest obstacle is often humanity itself.
Raise your flags
And die like the others.
I hide my face from the world.
I don’t want them to see who I am.
I lie. Hoping no one knows.
And go to sleep every night wishing they did.
But it’s not acceptable.
If they knew they would laugh.
But deep deep down.
I care. I want to change the world.
I find solace in the comfortable silence of your arms.
There is longing, in my heart, for a true kiss.
But I search for that kiss.
That kiss that be-stills the crickets,
Dulls the pulses of the world,
Awakens the hairs on my neck to attention,
Like soilders in a row.
I aim to reveille in that moment,
Untainted by lust.
Breathing in each others breath.
Being reborn under a night sky,
Reaching for the flickering lights in the distance.
Two souls entangled,
