Smoke hides a ghost in the empty chair
Of what was, what is, and what will be
No man can tell what lies behind
And to my senses I have become blind.

Singe the flesh of my lips with your flame
My troubled minds contain all your pain
Hidden in the tabernacle of the unholy
My everything, my all.
My one and only.

Love, hate, pity and joy
Gods that create and gods that destroy
Insensitive and cold they send their wrath down
"Hurrah! Hurrah!", They say as we drown.
But Dead and broken souls immune to emotions
Only Scoff with apathy at the horrible notions.

All great nations eventually fall
Why not the great nation of your soul?
Crumbling before corruption and greed
Insensitive to all human need.
For the best of mankind have the furthest drop.
And there is nothing you can do for the process to stop.

I've fallen in love for the first time.
I wanna cry.

#love   #first   #time   #in   #the   #fallen  

I fell from Heaven
Say good bye, halcyon days
For I'm a sinner

Experienced Heaven only to have sinned and fallen back to Earth...
#days   #goodbye   #heaven   #fallen   #fell   #sinner   #halcyon  

I sit here now,
in horror of what I've done.
imagine the agony
of watching them run
as you rip and tear everyone you used love
then realizing,
with their heart in your hand,
you never stopped loving them.
You could never know the insanity
that slips between the cracks.
turns your own thoughts against you.
foreign pain in a foreign mind.
There is no saving people like me.
so run
and never return
unless you are prepared
to burn.

where do probverbs go to die?

do they expire with the ink of thought
penning themselves out of imagination?
or
simply tire of expectation?

tell me and i would scourge
that ignorant grave site,
guillotine its keeper,
decapitated him,
upon a writer’s block.

show me and i will breach earths bowels
wrenching words from darkness depths
with the light verse of celebration
and a calligrapher’s paragraph of praise.

only then could i rest in peace
from wordy passion and its novel pleasures
&
when spent, 
upon my epitaph do write;

'He brought words to life'

And who the hell was I?
I was a soft girl in armor sheets
hoping to be the one you'd seek.
I was gently crafted tea
just the right amount of bitter
- and sweet.
I was all dreams and no reality
my mind in constant flow
my life an artful mess
I suppose,
I was too much dreamy
and not enough girl
I was too much guarded
and not enough frail.
But,
I am enough now.
I am enough for me,
My mistake,
-and now I see
how I fell for all of you,
and you fell
for half of me.

wooooooah. I think I'm finally over it.

Fallen from Grace

I was with You
In Your sight
I served You
Lived for You
I felt I arrived
I made light of
Who I was in...
You in me
Who You were
Within me
In my being
I turned proud
Forgetting You
What it's about
You are Light
You are Love
I lost my way
From Light
I fell spiraling
Like a falling
Shooting star
Into an inferno
Into an abyss
Into darkness
From You I fell
I fell from grace
I lost my crown
I lost my title
That called me
Your own...
That called me
Your child...
Fallen from grace
Your beloved
Your darling
Your child...
But I forgot
In You there's
Life and life
More abundant
I forgot...
You are God
I forgot...
You are my Father
I left You...
You never left me
I forgot You...
You love me
I forgot You
You will fight
For Your child
And pull me out
From darkness
To bring me back
Into a marvelous
Glorious light
Fallen from grace
This child...
That disgraced You
Your child was I...
Crucified You again
But You didn't care
You went to the grave
In the graveyard...
Looked Lucifer
In his face...
Face to face...
With Satan
You defied him
You called me
You called my name
Your Spirit...
And breathed life
Unto my being...
Fallen from grace
This child....
That disgraced You
Your child was I...
Resurrected....
From death....
You gave me life
You washed me...
In Your blood...
Gave me grace
Once again...
You see...
I forgot...
You are God
I forgot...
You are my Father
I forgot...
You are God...
You are God...
Of...
Second chances...
Redemption...
Salvation...
You gave me
Your child...
Fallen from grace
Was once dead
But now I'm alive
Alive again...
Like You, I arose...
Arose again...
In Your love...
In Your blood...
In Your grace...
This child
Your child
Restored
No longer
Fallen from grace
I will remember...

Days of sunshine,
skies of azure
and scents of blooming flowers.

Days of never ending conversations,
careless guffaws
and childlike jests.

Days of heartfelt promises,
unrestrained caresses
and wild beating hearts.


I think I've fallen again...

Thorns are lovely
despite
their sharpness.

Fallen leaves are beautiful
despite their decay—
nobody cares that they will
nourish
next year’s trees.

Tomorrow would never be
a better day,
if nature hadn’t
planned things today.

#hope   #nature   #fallen   #tomorrow   #thorns   #decay   #seeds   #laves  

A home of fallen dreams
and wishes made upon dead stars
of feathers and fungal dreams
brushing gently your tendril wings
rearranging your wisps of hair
like ghostly fingers
in thin air
