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

Two

20140525-123928-45568500.jpg

Two lives
Two worlds
Two friends 
Two souls
Two hearts 

Too sad
Too much
Too hard
Too soon 
Too late

Two years
One love

Little One a repost

20131107-040701.jpg

Dry your tears 
Little one 

And rest 
Your head 
On me

Catch your
Breath
And realize

Some things 
Aren’t meant 
To be

Sit with me
Little one

And watch 
The sun 
Arrive

Life is for 
The living

Be happy 
You’re alive 

Hold my hand 
Little one 

And to 
The moon
We’ll go 

Ride a cloud
To a dream 

Bask in
The healing 
Glow

Share my soul 
Little one

It helps 
You’re not 
Alone 

Days ahead 
Are darker

The nights
Are paths 
Unknown 

Take my heart
Little one 

I promised 
From the 
Start

I’d love 
You 
Forever

Together 
Or
Apart

El Sueño (The Dream) a repost

20130915-144303.jpg

The light of the moon
On a hot summer night
Peeks into the room

Though half asleep
And into a dream
I feel the moonlight bloom

And from the shadows
I hear your voice
A whisper in the night

Come with me, my love
Let’s go for a walk
Under the full moon’s light

So quickly I went
His embrace was like home
His kiss a tender touch

It felt like forever
Since I’d seen his face
I’d missed him so very much

Into the night
On a starlit path
We strolled arm in arm

In a field of flowers
Under a bevy of stars
I surrendered to his charm

Nowhere else
Would I rather be
It’s here that I want to stay

In his embrace
His love was a hug
That never goes away

We danced to music
Nobody else heard
Just he, I and the sky

Our hearts beat in rhythm
The tempo was perfect
As effortless as a sigh

As rain approached
We continued to dance
Forever is not long enough

Wrapped in each other
The only shelter we need
Is the umbrella of our love

Completely drenched
From head to toe
We chased each other around

So much fun
Lighthearted and free
A worry nowhere to be found

But all too soon
The night goes away
And soon my love must depart

So we set off for home
As the rain turns to mist
And love overflows my heart

He pulled me close
Breathed my essence in deep
And I held him so very tight

I blew him a kiss
As he turned away
And watched as he became light

I awoke with a start
What a wonderful dream
I thought as I threw back the sheet

I stifled a yawn
As I got out of bed
And looked down at my muddy feet

Missing You

Repost from last year. Written for my heart’s twin in memory of his daughter ❤❤

I’m missing you as always
It never goes away

Thinking of you constantly
The pain is here to stay

I’m missing you as always
I dream and see your face

You’d only started living
I miss your sweet embrace

I’m missing you as always
The emptiness is deep

Your silly smile and laughter
Are memories I keep

I’m missing you as always
It’s hard without you here

I still can hear your sweet voice
The sound is very dear

I’m missing you as always
No one can take your place

We should have laughed forever
It filled this lonely space

I’m missing you as always
The years are dragging by

Day to day is difficult
Of this I cannot lie

I’m missing you as always
I have just one belief

I know that I will see you
Someday to my relief

I’m missing you as always
I’ll see you then my sweet

Until that day should happen
Your heart in mine will beat

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
