Onward Bound

I pack my things, to close this chapter; a door on all, I left behind. The nights I tossed in this bed as I witnessed my death, over and over; felt the vicious pain of a wounded mother, a sick child, and a lost father. But I took that hurt, I whispered it love andContinue reading “Onward Bound”

Release

As the year fades, I feel it sharp Steady tug Upon my opening heart Thickness of my shadows Past and parallel Have been tightening Fast, and fierce With an angry pull But I know I’m wiser, stronger still Than the darkest void Than the blackest star That’s melted from It’s dying grace; And so IContinue reading “Release”

Pyramids

Rosy blooms on sun-kissed peaks As light explodes within and out Guiding tune between and up The revealing shine of an alpine song And oh I’ll dance to welcome the night Enriched, warmed by this spell so bright To shelter me to hold my close No matter the dark that the shadow realms cast *Continue reading “Pyramids”
