Counterclockwise – A Collaboration

Had the pleasure to work with my best friend Christopher again! Please go and check out his blog, give him a follow and show him some love. https://divingdeepwithchristopher.wordpress.com

Thanks again for making this collaboration a pleasure to be a part of!

dancing inside
the sweet chaos
a scrapbook of memories
paper thin strips
plastered deep
into our porcelain skin
flood our veins
some nights
you feel
trapped inside
my ardent flesh
and others
fragile
like a paper doll
we’ve lost the passion
of the lovers call
all that’s left now
is to let the darkness
swallow us into
this black hole
drowning our soul
until the clock
runs out of time
until somehow
in the blink of an eye
you begin turn it back
counterclockwise
back to the beginning
the part where
you and I
Connected the chords
of our colliding lights
our pure chorus
that sparked
that very night sky

Just be you

Be who you are. Who you truly are, whatever that may be. Be the strong, fierce human that you were created to be. You are unlike anyone else on this earth, unique and one of a kind. A beautiful work of art. A type of magic that only foolish people can’t see. A dreamer with a soul that is bound to set the world on fire. A star in this dark world. A lover, a fighter, a caring and a perfectly imperfect being.

Live into your values. Find your truth, your REAL truth. We all know who we truly are deep down inside. Don’t be afraid to show the world who YOU are. Be strong and accept the battles that you’ve had to walk through just to be here today. Wear your scars with pride and shine like the beautiful diamond that you are. 

Whatever and whoever you are, down to your core, to the depths of your very being, be that. 

Just be that

Just be you

Beautiful You

You are amazing. A beautiful human, every man and every woman. Though our souls may at times set in darkness, remember that it will always rise in light. A balance of the in between, soaking up both. That is what makes us human and as I say, perfectly imperfect. 

We all are a stunning mystery, and carry the weight of the world on our shoulders each and every single day. Trying to live up to expectations and what others say we need to be. Trying to find our place in this world, when all it wants to do is keep you in a box. 

This is your reminder of how beautiful you truly are. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL. Look more than what any mirror will show you. The surface is only a small part of who you truly are. It’s the truth in the depths of you that is what matters the most. You are a work of art, beautifully painted and not by accident. Every beautiful part of you was created with a purpose. 

You will only know who you truly are, when you learn who you are not. Be you. Be beautifully you. I see you.

I wish you were here

I don’t know if I’ll ever get “use” to you being gone. The day replays, the pain is relived. You were here one day and gone the next. Just gone. No goodbye, just gone. It just doesn’t seem fair.

Each holiday, each birthday, each vacation, each special occasion, just doesn’t feel the same anymore. It will never be the same again.

Far away from where you are, I miss you. I wish you were still here, not just a memory upon this earth.

Sunday

in this moment
I will find happiness
within myself
I will not allow my mind
to think any less
than what I truly am
in this moment
I will become my own being
I will not let society
define who I am
or control how I think
in this moment
I will smile longer
love a little more
laugh a little louder
and forgive without regrets
in this moment
I will find happiness
within myself

Inside these moments

It’s moments like these that steal your breath away. The quietness of the morning, before the world fully wakes. The way the fog settles in, waiting for the sun to chase it away.

It’s in these moments that you find answers, you find peace and solitude. You find a strength you never knew you had. Forgiveness seems a little easier, the pain seems a little less.

These moments are more than the image to me. These moments are for dreaming, for falling in love with the one person who knows your soul. For learning, growing and discovering.

These are the moments, that matter the most in this world. Right here, right now. YOU are worthy, YOU are beautiful and YOU are more than enough!
