A mother’s bravery while breaking…..

For some, today represent the best and worse day of the year. While some gathers and share in the joy of family, others are torn by the lost of a child or a mother. Today, may our hearts be tender to those that are hurt and broken. For those that have no idea what it’s like to have the love of a mother. For mother’s that lost their child, whether it’s to the system or death, we speak their names in love and hope, for a mother’s heart is a loop of unending emotions and they find the strength to be brave even when they are breaking.

Poetry Today

In A Valley Of Thorns You Are Fire

rose

Today is the day

Interrupt the sky

Break the halos

Kiss the silver lining

Lay between magnolia blooms

Feel the incessant

Beat of your heart

Spread out your ageless wings

Of topaz

Of rose buds

In a valley of thorns

You are fire

And ice

You are majestic elegance

You are the lost melody

Found deep

Within trembling souls

You are delectable

My love

You will be the stories found

On the lips of legends

Don’t Give Up On Love Too Soon

dandelion-4147033_960_720

I’ve seen it way too often, a lifetime decision made in the blink of an eye. A disruption of life, blindsided by betrayal, hurt by words, abused by love you though would save you. Emotions on life support, running on empty,  seeing no way out, you decided to walk away and gave up.

But I tell you this, sometimes you have to reach into the darkness and snatched back what was meant to be yours. You have to walk through the fire and rescue a heart that has lost its way. Sometimes you have to fight for what was meant to be yours.

Don’t give up on love too soon.

The Missing Face

The pain landed in her bones, a forever ache looking out from the wreckage of a fractured soul. What was meant to be a celebration has transformed into a gravestone. She walked the streets searching for signs of the gift she once held in her womb.

The Rush

I don’t need light to see you

I can feel you in my veins

I carry your heartbeat

On my tongue

My soul trembles

With the need to hold you

Your taste is madness

You are the sweetest rush

I’ve ever known

Poetry Today

Apple Blossoms

I’ve loved you

Ever since the Apple Trees

Blossomed

And the smell filled me

Up

With a deep longing

To hold You

To kiss every line

on your ambrosial

Face

There’s no more

Space

In me

I’m no longer my own

Self

Love buried in a field of

Apples

Your eyes

Supine

Begging the heavens

To let this moment

last

Forever

Poetry Today

Fragmented

dandelion-4144858_960_720

 

She wanted more than hollow words and pretty smiles, she wanted the darkness that lived in her mother’s eyes to touched her. She wanted to understand how someone so fragile could carry so much pain tucked away beneath her rib cage. All the damaged years, every lonely nights tells the same story.

She found a way to shine through the pieces of her fragmented soul.
