Jacksonville, Florida    1996 -    
Once I fell in love with the sun and the sea.
Once I fell in love with the sun and the sea.

In a day's lifetime,
the sun turns to the moon
to take her hand
for a single moment.
She lingers over the ocean
watching this beautiful, mystic moon
dance above the clouds,
fascinated and somber.

In a day's lifetime,
this is the significance.
This is what she, the day,
looks for-
the radiant warmth of the sky,
which glows because of their love.

In my lifetime,
I wait for that moment
every day
and I see
the gold in your eyes and hair,
where the sun has once kissed.
I see the constellation of your freckles,
where the moon has once listened
to your stories held beneath your skin,
as you wept into her breast.

In my lifetime,
I kiss your freckles.
I stroke your hair.
I admire your eyes.
I love you.

It began with a simple melody

A soft and fragile phrase
Each note vibrating with color
From pale yellows
to vivid oranges and purples
Each color reminding me
of a memory not yet made

The song was entitled Elsewhere,
until I found home inside
of the Elsewhere I created

and then I thought-
maybe I was not the creator,
but the curious voyager
unknowingly searching
for her soul
which was made of
royal blue and magenta stardust-
Stardust that held a fragrance
of a lavender field and fresh peaches

The stardust shimmered in her eyes
like the night sky
and I observed the depth in her irises;
a cave of emeralds
as I was overcome with affection and curiosity
to know more

I was perched on the worn carpet
in the apartment of 1904
on a quiet July morning
Tangled hair and dried up mascara
A warm cup of black coffee in hand
and a deck of tarot cards

Eager to know what the future held,
I watched the cards flip over one-by-one
in their Celtic Spread
My eyes sparkling with excitement,
I read my near future

"December"
"Love"
"Stability"

Those were the words I remember from that one card.
Words I did not understand until now.

Words which I thought
belonged to another heart,

But it was you.

I often choose not to believe in fate.
For fate is subject to change
based on our actions and decisions-

But I chose to bring you in my life,
un-aware of the treasures
I would find sooner or later,
and that is when fate took it's course

And now
it is December 7th.
I lay in bed with you
caressing your hand
and holding you,
as if there was only
you and me in this lifetime

I do believe that
maybe
the stardust that rests
atop our vulnerable hearts
came from the same star
and maybe
it's magnetic,
just like
my tenderness for you

She promotes positivity,
kindness, drive, and love.

She smiles at hard work
because the result is worth
the hardship.

She holds beneath her chest
an open heart,
ready to be embraced
by the earth and its souls.

She is sad, but she continues to smile.

She hurts
She is tired
She is alone
She is cold
But she is holding on.

Until she lets go.

She kisses her body good-bye,
as her now free spirit flies
toward the sun.

Twenty-three years leading up to this point.
Twenty-three years of a life.

She leaves behind
her family, her friends,
her past,
her present,
and her future.

She is no more.
She is gone.

But the memories linger-
like the goosebumps
following a gentle gust of wind.
Like the sweet after-taste
of red wine on a cool summer night.

She was beautiful.
She was caring.
She was struggling.
She was sad.
But she is loved.
She will always be loved.

Suicide is not to be taken lightly. Rest in peace, Lacie. You will be dearly missed.

Share with me your depth-
your passion for the sound of waves
along the shoreline,
your secrets and fears
that only the moon may know.

Share with me your light-
the reflections of sun rays
against the emeralds beneath your eyes
A calming warmth.

Share with me all of you-
every fault, every sparkle,
and every new feeling
that silently shakes the ground
of your being
and burns your heart
with a cold rush to your fingertips.

For I will place my lips
upon your skin, and
kiss every scar,
embrace every flaw, and
encourage every new ray of light
that glistens from
your freckled skin.

Lately,
I have noticed your
Smile, when I gaze into my own dreams
And listen for echoes of warm happiness

Finally.

I thought it would never leave
I thought I would be stuck

An eternal dark tunnel of sorrow
A weight in my heart
An emptiness in my core
The survival of what remained-
not actually living.

But finally

I do not search for your smell
I do not listen for your voice
I do not wait for your reply
I do not yearn for your touch

So I sit back
and watch
and observe
and smile
and love
the beautiful blue water
from a distance


You, the art
I once kissed
and held in my arms,
have gone.

And so have I.

With a relieved smile,
I turn to the sun who looks down
on my scarred figure
and heals what wounds were left,
as I take flight with the gulls
and soar to a new land-
kissing the past goodbye and
embracing the future with wide arms

Alas,
there is light
there is warmth
there is radiance
there is strength
by the name of Elsewhere

The elsewhere I have
finally found.
