Sometimes less is more,
When more threatens
To become too much.

kiss me harder
and we'll go down together
I swear I'm not going
anywhere
because you're exactly what I needed
and you showed up the
moment
I
looked away
I'm holding my breaths in
and imagining yours
your mouth
and everything I learn about you is a new
star
and you form constellations with ease
while I'm stuck stargazing
overwhelmed
you are composed
and I am erratic
you don't see a difference
(I wish my words were as beautiful as you)

I'm overwhelmed,

I just want to let loose.

I want to scream until there's nothing left,
paint my problems on a wall,
write the words written on my heart.

I'm crying out, ready to be heard,
my mouth is moving, but I have no words.

I'm overwhelmed,
overwhelmed.

Rainfall
Heavy showers
Clouds burst pouring darkness
Barren devoid desert sodden
Monsoon
Flooded rivers overflow blood
Tides roar atop drenched screams
Torrential rains
Deluge

As I open the door

The cold engulfs me first
raising hairs on my neck, shivers down my spine, prickles on my scalp

Next the smell
so mild, pleasant, crisp. similar to rain or dew
my lungs take in this air for the first time

The light begins to peek over the mountains
clearing the fog, cutting away the dark

The quiet is both a comfort and an uneasiness
Only the earth under my feet whispers as I walk the dirt path

The lake unblemished, like a mirror for the sky to look upon
no wind, no waves, no life

standing there, absorbing the surroundings
I am the one to break the silence, to shatter the utopia
as I drop the pebble in the waters…

these ripples go on                                                              ­Forever

tilt my head back
inhale deep
I look up
at the stars
its humbling really,
just how insignificant
all our petty problems truly are
in this vast universe
exhale

I get overwhelmed

I get overwhelmed
by the idea that
there are people much more successful
and happier
and powerfull
than me
it makes me feel smaller than
the smallest grain of sand
in the big sahara
because I can't be such things

I get overwhelmed
by the idea that
there are people less successful
and sadder
and less powerful
than me
it makes me feel smaller than
the smallest plankton
in the big ocean
because i can't help them

This keeps me awake at nights

glory on the dark clouds
rain falling upon my lips
looking up, amazed
drifted consciousness
into wonder, into the invisible, I run
I chase the Voice that so intimately knows my innermost being
it is all, and it will always be
it is the wind that blows through my hair
it is the sweet aroma of the earthly art that merely shadows Your elegance, swiftness, and melodious definition of Genius which You so clearly and effortlessly exceed.
