Sailed Off

Shivers
And now I’m listening intently
Observing with gentle dedication
And swallowing emotions
Music soft and wrapping around me
And flowing through me
Like cold water tap
And sensation over me
That music like poetry
That touches a river in my mind
And sails me back so far
To where I was dreaming
Some long off time ago

Digressions of Gratitude

Heaven descent
On concrete cement
On this suburban avenue
I am bent with gratitude
And pause lament
To halt and view
These blessings I’ve kept
Here I am caused to stop
From inward contempt
And with this quick moment
Feel a heaven present
See my soul rest
Sudden peace commence
Under shivering fall trees
And quiet traffic far off
And ever craving I call
With gratitude given
And holding hard
I take time to digress

Candle in Ash

It’s really actually gone
Like a candle in ash
I feel old inside
I must have finally
Run out of breath
And silent, fainted
And woke up broken
My heart has been wilting
And somehow
Far too early
Fell far dark
I see
It’s actually really gone
And I feel
And can no longer ignore
A real, transformed space
Indelible and cold
And I am somehow
Something else
And I am somehow
Something else

Pensive Nights

Laying in my bed
Looking up at the ceiling
Open eyes and still
With the blue glimmer
On my walls
From my phone light
And soft moody music
And I wonder
Where my life will go
And what is out of my control
And dream of deep love
But sleep alone
Open eyed
Laying in my soft bed
Staring up at the ceiling

Streams

Fly away me
Go hide there
Pain like flash
Like hope falls
Like builds up
And bursts to tears
Like torn, tangled
Mottled grief
Like fly, far away
Like sink, so deep
Like sing
Like so many colors go
And all spin around me
So quietly
So white noise rushing
Is anxiety
Is pain like flash
Like dull engulfing
And cannot hide
Flat out flayed
Here and open wound
Like glass castle shatters
Yellow petals trampled
Echo in this well
Fly away me
Like sad jazz
Hide there in loud music
Hide there in beautiful art
Deep in thought
