I Need Some Poetry

I need some poetry to soothe my mind,
to take me into a cloud of rhyme.
I need some soul to love me blind,
forgive me my faults, and give me time.
I need some life to help me find,
the beauty in all that is real and mine.

It Could Not Be Detained

 
I am in bed
but I’m flying,
I am laughing
and I’m crying
 
 
My heart is soaring
and affection is pouring,
and the pounding inside
me is roaring.
 
 
I am sitting upon the moon
and gazing upon the stars.
I am floating among the clouds
and succumbing at all hours.
 
 
I am freshly revived
I’ve rode away on a stallion.
I’ve been to the ends of the earth
only to come back to this again.
 
 
I’ve fought seas and storms
and hungered for all things,
and never knew how much
life, happiness brings.
 
 
Oh the words finally spilled
there upon the scales,
To be measured and weighed;
To try not to fail.
 
 
And the release, so great,
The breaking of a dam,
Because it’s let go of what I’ll be
and all I ever am.
 
Oh what, what does one do
When they’ve had the courage to
Look into the eyes,
of one quite surprised,
and finally admit and say,
“I love you?”

US

Rescuing me is what you do
At times when my life is dangerously low
Forever it seems I’ll need you
Always to treasure & love & care for me so.
Even when times are incredible
Living them with you helps me grow.

Acute to all the wonderful
New ways to cherish eachother,
That you’ve shown me in a way
Only you could ever.
Never believing I’d have a love so
Indefinitely everlasting and true,
Or that such affection that comes in abundance could all flow so easily from you.

Questions arise
Undoubtedly so, as to why
Inside I feel so beautiful,
Next to you peering in your eyes, you
Tell me all there is to know.
All there is that matters to me, being
Near to you for eternity.
In love with you in
Love with us;
Living our lives so happily
And praying to God for just enough joys & tears & spirituality.

My Song

I feel as the shulammite maiden
Who spoke of her dear one with love,
Who refused the offers from a king
For her boy companion who rose far above.

She cared not for riches or gold
Or the perfumed oils fit for a queen.
She wanted to flee from the city instead
To the hills where her shepherd had been seen.
The desire for him deep inside
Made nighttime for her a despair,
For in her dreams she looked far and wide,
But never finding him; a heartbreaking nightmare.
She was loyal and especially true
Despite what those of Jerusalem said.
She stood firm in her resolve
Even while he was gone to his garden bed.
She proved to those
Who feared her too young,
To be a strong wall
With a honeyed tongue.
Alas, this is me!
Oh, love of my soul,
Place me a seal upon your heart,
And never let me go.
For love is stronger than death is
In the flame of Jah,
And neither waters nor rivers can put out
What is united with Jehovah.
This enveloping devotion
I pray, is for always here to stay,
And as of now for us
There are many mountains in the way.

But I still call to you
And together one day it shall be,
That you will be able to
Come leaping over these mountains to me.
Yes, you will be able to come leaping
Over those mountains to me!

Caught in the Rain

 

Sit here to think of something truly heartbreaking
Only you know of what I mean,
Only you know the beating I’m taking
Only you know, for you have seen.

Something so sad, yet inevitable.
It sits there, it knows I must come to know it.
It laughs, I believe it mocks me
For I will very much live it.

It’s a cloud, dark and gloomy
Hanging over my head hanging over my hands.
It’s rain pouring in a waterfall
Falling over my eyes, filling over with tears.

It takes my hands and leads me
To the eye of its hurricane.
It pushes me into a storm of grief
And it let’s go like others I know…

I sit to think of something so sad
Only you know too well.
For the feelings that make one feel so bad
Your eyes they start to tell,

Of a time when they may have shown bright
But oh, that time is so vague and long ago.
Come, these hands of mine are held out to you now
Trust me for they will not let you go.

You sit to ponder on times so hard.
Something you just can’t seem to brush away.
Believe me, I know, I know, I do,
Just let me, try me, I dare you to,
               Let me be your friend today.

Crazy Circumstance

How many times
Can I dream about you
To face the fact
That something dear is missing?
 
How many situations must arise
Where I feel I need your opinion
Before I admit I feel lost?

If I could just meet you somewhere
Someplace and sometime
To discuss what all went wrong
To bring out the truth

Because somewhere in your mind and heart
And somewhere in mine
There lies a misunderstanding so deep
That it’s built a wall between us

So many things I don’t quite see why
So many reasons left unexplained
Why you acted in such a way
Why you said nothing and turned away… from me.

My mind practically chides me for feeling so forlorn
It warns, “You’re better this way.”
My heart feels abandoned and fearful and longing
For the friendship it proudly held with you

Where are those days of completeness?
The days where happened what happened
I could turn and know how you felt.
It reassured me, completed me, and gave me reason.

Now it’s so different
Crazy circumstances brought us here,
To this point, this angering, senseless point!
Where I must believe I have never known you at all!

Oh, my heart how it aches to meet you all over again!
Oh, my eyes how they fill to change change change it now!

I am in a dark place searching for answers to
Why things must turn out this way,
But nothing is pulling me out to light
Nothing is presenting me the reasons why.

So I go on for I can’t just stop
My legs carry me to continue through life
My mind works, and thinks of it all, but the one thing
That my heart carries brokenly deep in the insides; it cradles it.

A time when our friendship blossomed and trusted and laughed and cried… together.

My Friend, The Wanderer

Woah! What happened here?
Were did you come from?
I was sitting in my peaceful life
And then, here you come.

Nicely planted in my garden
I’m now uprooted and surprised
Wow, you are really here
In front of my disbelieving eyes.

A trail of laughter follows behind you
A rainbow marks your steps
Fire-works sparkle above your head
And sweet honey from your lips.

You, your person, your being,
Your very dear soul,
Brings life anew to everyone you meet
And takes it away from everyone you let go.

I laugh content to see you here now
I bask in the warmth of your glow.
My eyes are so very bright and sparkle,
But they are not deceived. They know.

I dance inside, I waltz with your words
The promises that are so ideal,
I swing my arms open to take them to heart,
And sigh, “If only they were real!”

Then you see me with my smile
Knowing I have not trusted in your charade
But your mind skips and is sorrowful only a second
Then forgets again any promises made.

You look around for escape.
Where will the wind blow you now?
You’re skipping away, then remember me and turn back,
But I am already settling down.

Then you understand that I understand
That you’re a drifting tide.
That no matter how you, love, sing, and laugh, and dance
You will leave and run and hide.

But I have real life before me now
Filled with security, commitment, and real love.
And I chose not to go with you long ago,
For to me these roots I’ve settled into rise far above.

Farewell wonderful wanderer,
may you brighten another’s day.
But may they learn that the wonder you give
Will in the end again and again, be taken away…

So Blessed My Dear

Oh, blessed be this chest of mine, where your head lies at night;
And blessed be the heart inside that thumps louder every time.

Blessed be my eyes that behold your glances my way;
And blessed be the mind behind that can discern how blessed I am today.

How blessed are my lips to feel the warmth of your own,
And blessed be that the taste of your kiss, I know.

Blessed be my fingers, for touching and pulling you close,
My arms for holding you near.
And blessed I am, oh how much I realize God loves me,
When your tender words I hear.

Nothing

 
 

I am nothing and I do nothing…

Then what am I here for?

I am walking air, invisible to you

until what I do is too wrong to ignore.

 

I am non-existent, an irritant

until i stumble in your way.

Then i am mess and disappointment

and then i must know it’s not okay.

 

My efforts, oh, how I try

they go so unnoticed… why do i try?

My heart it beats silently

tho it’s body at times would rather die.

 

Then there would be an excuse for no praise,

an excuse for no love.

Then it would not care to be here nor there

nor have nothing to prove.

 

Glad you see all that you do.

You whistle as you pat your own back.

How much would it hurt you to turn around

and not notice so much all that i lack?

 

How much would it take out of you

to notice the good in me?

to let me know what exactly it is

that makes me at all worthy…

 

If I am at all worthy.

If my person is able and kind.

If I am important to you,

and why being worthless is not the way I am designed.

 

If in fact you do feel that way

why is it so easy to ignore?

I am nothing and I do nothing.

Oh, then tell me what am I here for?

Break Away

 Break away and run
to a cliff far somewhere
to keep the shelter from shattering
and leaving my skin bare

gravel upon the ground
flying in all directions
my heels kicking up dust
racing against my reflections

groping for freedom
against solitudes of my mind
and breathing for air
from memories of another time

choking and gasping
slipping on slick pavement of life
tripping and falling
to a void of dence darkness and strife

break away break away
my heart beats
break away break away
my mind repeats

sweat falls and tears follow
shoulders are balancing the world
the cloud above rushes time
and it darkens and storms upon this girl

Stop. I am halted.
Before me stands a friend.
Can this one be trusted?
My eyes won’t let them in.

break away break away
from negativity
break away break away
it will steal all naivety

finding that corner on the edge
of a mountain in another space
where love reigns and noone lives
but me.
where letting down is vacant
and the mirror shows only my face
and all i have ever known is to
just be.

fighting with unjustice and love
understanding is refusing to come
but really all this chaos and trouble?
Girl, what are you running from?
