Poetry Today

Walk On

Walk on In tender sorrow

Between the serpent’s den

Never let your guard down

Respect the journey and

fight for what you believe in

Step over the nonsense

Shield your heart

From chaos

Pain will bend you

Bring you to your knees

But it will never break you

Walk on©

Your Story of Bravery

You are strong and brave; your best life is right now. Live it without restriction, let go of everything that no longer serves you or bring you joy. This is your moment, your time to live above the mediocrity, to step outside the box that held you down. No matter the age, the circumstances, the abuse, the scars, make the decision to live the rest of your life worthy, filled with joy and peace. Yes troubles will come; some days will be rough, but you will be ready to fight. This is your legacy your story of bravery.

…….the awakening

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.

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

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.
