Hello…

I’ve not posted on this blog in several years. I think at some point, I felt I didn’t have anything more to add.

I logged in a week ago and reread some of my older posts, and realized how much of my heart I poured into my writing. I miss the freeing sensation of writing my thoughts out.

I stopped writing. I walked away from it and started focusing on other parts of my life.

I have continued to add to my draft folders and my list of ideas, but it’s been ages since I’ve actually written something based on some of those thoughts.

I logged in with the intention of saving everything and then deleting the account, but I’m feeling the pull to write again.

I’m not sure who’s still following this blog, but if you’re subscribed, thank you.

I’ll be back.

Bittersweet 

  
Bittersweet 

Are the dreams you have while you’re awake

Bittersweet 

Is the music you love that reminds you of what you want to forget

 
Bittersweet 

Are the tears you shed while standing in the rain 

Bittersweet 

Is knowing your heart’s desire will always be out of reach

Bittersweet

Is a stormy night under a full moon’s light

Bittersweet

Is the heartache that’s a constant reminder of a happier time

Bittersweet

Is losing and finding yourself 

Bittersweet

Is the smile that masks the sorrow 

And bittersweet 

Is watching the magnificence of the sunset as your world comes crashing down

Never

  

You’ll never be mine 
I’ll never hold your hand 
Fingers clasped 
Brought to my lips
I’ll never press my ear 
To your chest 
Hear the rhythm
You’ll never be mine 
I’ll never wrap myself 
Around you 
Seek comfort
I’ll never feel your breath 
On my neck
As we sleep 
You’ll never be mine 
I’ll never sit and watch
As you speak 
Unaware 
I’ll never feel your arms 
Around my waist 
Pull me close 
You’ll never be mine 
I’ll never wake 
In the night
Reach for you 
I’ll never smile 
Across a room
Meet your eyes
You’ll never be mine 
I’ll never see 
Our shadows dance
By firelight 
I’ll never see 
The moonlight’s glow
On your skin
You’ll never be mine
But 
A true heart 
Knows 
It’s twin   
And there 
You remain 
You’ll always be mine

Fairy Tale

IMG_6032-1.JPG

Fairy Tale

Once upon a dream
Full of indigo skies
I woke in the dark
Knew they were lies

Turn the page

Once upon a moon
I gazed in wonder
A spell was cast 
And pulled me under

Turn the page

Once upon a heart
Happy and hopeful
Never the same
Content and joyful

Turn the page

Once upon a soul
Bonded together 
Twinning of heart
A willful tether

Turn the page 

Once upon a cloud
Overflowing with rain
Unleash the power
Bring on the pain

Turn the page 

Once upon a storm
Loud with thunder
The lightning struck
My world asunder

Turn the page

Once upon a tree
Looking for refuge
Seek boughs for comfort
Shelter from deluge 

Turn the page 

Once upon a time 
The story ended
No happily ever after
The promise rescinded

Close the book

Lost

20131107-043025.jpg

Lost in a song
A flood 
Of memories
In danger 
Of drowning

Lost in a crowd 
Standing alone
In
A sea 
Of humanity

Lost 
In this 
Moment 
A labyrinth 
Of insanity

Do You…

20131027-205044.jpg

Do you
Dream about me
See my face
Hold me close
Keep me safe

Do you
Hear my voice
Feel the warmth
The accent
My laugh

Do you
See my smile
The curve
The smirk
The pout

Do you
Pick up your phone
Reread messages
Relive
Get lost

Do you
Close your eyes
Inhale the
Scent of my hair
Taste my skin

Do you
Recall conversations
Laugh out loud
Snicker
Smile

Do you
Hear our songs
Flooded with
Memories
Weep unashamedly

Do you
Think about me
Wonder what I’m doing
Where I am
Who I’m with

Do you
Wish things
Were different
Want to go back
Never let go

Do you
Go for a walk
Talk to the night
Rage at the sky

Do you
Stare at pictures
Touch the screen
Trace the contours

Do you
Watch
The rise and fall
Of the sun
The moon
Count stars

Do you
Know my
Soul
Hear my
Heartbeat
Crave
My touch

Do you
Love me
Hate me
Thank and
Curse
Fate

I
Do

I Remember

20131017-055821.jpg

I remember when

The sky 
Really was 
The limit

The moonlight
Was my 
Sunlight 

The wind 
Held me 
Aloft

The clouds
Cushioned
My fall 

The rain 
Cleansed
My soul

And
The stars envied
The radiance 
Of our love

I remember

Colors Part 1

20131013-155600.jpg

At times 
You are
Shades of
Red

Sweet 
Like cherries 
Savored 
On the tongue 

A glass of
Claret wine
Full-bodied
Rich
Intoxicating

Long stemmed 
Roses
Crimson 
Fragrant
Romantic

Fiery red
Molten lava
Coursing through 
Your veins

Vermillion sunsets
Burnished copper
Glowing 
Intense
You

The Sky Cried

20131013-130610.jpg

I breathe 
The wet air 
The earthy scent
Walk through 
Damp grass
Toes exposed
And embrace
Her sorrow

You Are

20131009-164809.jpg

You are 
The sunrise
On a cloudy morning

Shades of brilliance 

Reflection on water

Layers of iridescence 

Light and dark

Hints of shadow 

Nuances of colors 
That words 
Cannot describe

You are
