What he thinks

Leave a comment

His eyes crinkle
At the edges
As he contemplates

How someone
In a wheelchair
would get by

The construction signs
Haphazardly
Placed across the sidewalk

And his frown
Soft voice turned down
As he talks

And my love abounds
Here In the interior
Of this van

For this man
Who always thinks
of such things

Through the lens
She captures
The beauty you dare
Not see

Because then you’d
Have no reason
To be
Disappointed

Between the fantasy
Of what life
Should be
And the reality

That imperfections
Demonstrate

Inspections
Of faith
Demand
Truth not be blind

Yet be kind
But your amazing eyes
Swim in tears

From these years
Of self propelled
Reflection
Of every flaw
And every sin

Always focused
So deep within
Whilst grace
abounds

When the same eyes
Hear my similar sighs

And such love
Resounds
Here in my heart
At this image I see
Of you in my lens

Of not what you can be
Or change
Or do or see
But here and now

In the lines of jaw
Long lashes that surround
Depths of blue
And endless hues
Of all the chaos
That is wholly, beautifully
You.

The wonder of you

When you say just the right words
That I need to hear
The world all around us
Crumbles away and disappears

And all that’s left
Is the sound of your beating heart
In rhythm with mine
And despite the chaos
Outside this space
Or inside my mind
I know innately
That it’s gonna be just fine

That all I must do
Is to wrap these arms around you
And hold on tight

Because in this this crazy life
We may lose sight
Of what is right
Here in what goes wrong
In all the shiny lights
And nightmare filled nights
Or never-ending, task filled throng
Of expectations
To do’s, reports, meetings
Repeating’s

When you say just the right words
That I need to hear
The world all around us
Crumbles away and disappears

And all that’s left
Is the sound of your beating heart
In rhythm with mine
And despite the chaos
Outside this space
Or inside my mind
I know innately
That it’s gonna be just fine

When I sink to my knees
At the end of my rope
And I think
I can’t take another step
you look into these eyes
And without a blink
You link your fingers with mine
And tell me you wouldn’t lie
That if it weren’t for me
You couldn’t get by

That you and I
are made of hope
and faith and love
and those beautiful blue eyes
look so deeply into these green
bring such wonder
I’ve never seen

That only divine things
Could have brought this love
Into being

When you say just the right words
That I need to hear
The world all around us
Crumbles away and disappears

And all that’s left
Is the sound of your beating heart
In rhythm with mine
And despite the chaos
Outside this space
Or inside my mind
I know innately
That it’s gonna be just fine

Wishing away the empath

Leave a comment

Tears trundle
Down warm cheeks
Emotions
Not mine own

Creeping
Crawling
Across my skin

Seeping
Unbidden within

Standing in the shower
At the end of the day

Hoping to wash
Them all away

But the water
Just mingles
With the soap

And the tears
Confirms the fears
Before the hope
Falls
Falls
Falls
Down the drain

Recycled dreams

Leave a comment

You took away my right
And now I relive it
Every single night

These tears soak
Into my pillow
As I try and fight

And wonder if maybe
Just maybe
I deserve this pain

That wrings
This heart out
Again
And again
And again

Where in the light
Of day
I pray

fragile faith
Can keep
Tired memories at bay

Instead of recycling
Them back
Into sight

Giving them wings
And flight

And punishing me
For something
I don’t understand

And can’t possibly
Get right
Enough to ignite

Expansions of the heart

Leave a comment

Let’s entwine hearts
Like these fingers
And be aware

To always take care
Of yesterday’s lessons
Love and memories

To bring forward
To new love
Where we combine
Our lives
Respecting

Expecting
Reflecting the beauty
Of from where we came
Never the same

Family
Roots expanding
Flame
Never extinguished

Simply burning
Yearning
In the beautiful eyes
Of our children

Flashbacks

Leave a comment

I lift wet cheeks to dark skies

Unremembered cries

Mingle with cold raindrops

Plop

Plop

Plop

Refuse to stop

Rolling downward

Down pinkened cheeks

From these weeks

Drowning here

Inside these green pools

Schools of thoughts

Brought on

Wrought with shame

Always wondering

Whose

To blame?

This inner voice

Forever critic

That states you can’t possibly

Do it right

Not in the light of day

And particularly delights

In pointing out

Flaws

In the vulnerability

Brought on

From the insecurities

Nestled in snuggly

In the darkest hours of night

Flashes of memories

Where they took

Away my right

And now I wipe away

The snot

And the tears

Lift my arms in surrender

And pray
