Poetry is everywhere

it’s in the way
my eyes
fall in love
with yours
each time
I see you
it’s the curve
of my smile
when I think
of you
it’s the touch
of my fingers
gently upon
your beautiful soul
it’s tucked away
in every star
for us
to wish upon
and in our dreams
that we hang
upon the moon
and read
to each other
as we drift away
with each
tick
tock
of the clock

Stardust

without seeing you
or hearing your voice
I would still
know you
even if a lifetime
kept us apart
I would still
feel you
between the ends
of the earth
and everything
inside of stardust
there are still echos
of you and I
and even when
I leave this world
it is you
that I will carry
from this life
to the next

The Abyss – A Collaboration

Thank you again Christopher for this incredible opportunity to write with you again. Looking forward to part 2! Please follow his blog at https://divingdeepwithchristopher.wordpress.com

she sits
in the darkness
of the night
alone
inside the obscurity
of her cold mind
beneath the cold surface
where her screams
are silent
where her dreams
are the inner voice
of violence
here there is no help
to fight the demons
who torture her
tormented soul
in the abyss
frozen in the
paralysis of fear
she weeps
a thousand tears
that no one can
hear
wishing to faintly
disappear
from hearing these
twisted words they
proclaim
as they replay
her tragic past
whispering the madness
into her ears
reminding her of
the unspoken tragedy
these diabolical
memories
locked tight inside
the confines
of her heart
longing to be forsaken
from this prison
but never meant
to escape
or so they say
to shine outside
into the
beaming light

Perfectly imperfect

My wish is that you find within yourself the peace and strength to know that you are fine just the way you are. You don’t need to be more than someone you’re not or less than the person you are. You only need to be YOU. Regardless of how the world responds to you.

My wish is that you see in yourself what is truly there. A strong, confident, incredible person. A tenacious soul with faults and scars, someone who doesn’t hide them and works hard each day to turn them into something they can be proud of.

Just remember, I’ll be rooting for you.  I SEE YOU. Be yourself, be YOU, be the beautiful soul that is already deep inside of you, the real you. I SEE YOU.
