Who knew it could be this easy To live In two places at once, Where I am And then Where you are For my body sleeps still In my bed But my mind Runs away in the night To be in your arms. Easy? No But the scars you leave When you leave Heal a little more Each time I close my eyelids And see you Peering in through the darkness Shining your effulgence Til morning sunrise
Her arms drape over Leaving her shadow behind Unseen Branches brush my thighs Dance along my bare skin While early morning Incandescent sunrays Rest on my cheeks Standing at her roots She brings me to my knees Grounded heavy In gratitude as she shows us So gracefully Quietly Mindfully How to breathe
The first early morning sunrays Sharp warmth Yet tender as it paints My freckled skin As I sit with crossed legs And heavy eyelids The only one shuffling out To watch him rise Above distant hills With dew And orange tinted Wild flowers Sweating the coolness of the night Into spiralling, trickling streams Carried into the river I rest my feet at her edges As he slowly, softly Sings the birds to life Generously Giving, sharing Breathing, beaming Despite all Unconditionally Our grandfather sun Exhaling life giving warmth Warmth giving love Always Nourishing, nurturing He weaves his magic Through every creatures tapestry So I love him back Larger today For he Is the first to embrace me Rustling my heart to life Morning through night Held In all days And all ways He melts me like no other For him I am eternally grateful For him I am always in service For now I need no other For now I desire no other And this is new And exciting, Fulfilling Overflowing For me For the sun Birds Tall grass Untamed land River beds Oceans Mountains Deep valleys Grandma forests And Those who walk With love and reverence For this devine Incredible ******* beautiful Earth under our feet Gracefully handing us life Every day
Keep sipping your ****** tea Stare me down From the soft blue cushion On your corner of the bed Feast On my soft ***** skin With your eyes That appear a little darker these days A little hungrier Greedier Insatiable Much like my thirst when I see you With my back pressed into the cold brick wall I speak softly Telling you that I won't open These parts for you anymore Until my doors ***** Creek Just slightly open And you march in Reach in Deeper Deeper I dread your destructive ways I crave them too All while hoping Maybe When you're finished demolishing my walls You'll build a little home Just big enough Sweet enough For the 2 of us So again And again I allow myself to crumble At your boots. But last night I wasn't just unsteady You took my whole foundation away Ripped it Straight from under my feet Before walking out While I still had no legs And I lay a mess on the floor But don't worry, It's okay They grew back And I built another home While I slept And dreamt of you Staying
You're like the tattered tissues I left in the pocket Of my favourite winter sweater I threw you in To tumble around With my other ***** winter laundry It's spring now And I'm still picking pieces of you From parts of me I thought you'd never Touched Held Stroked Caressed I wish I never put you in my pockets But i needed you then
Sweet heart, Drift of to sleep Before the world Tears you down Into the hum The screech The roar Of motors And machinery Dragging you So slowly You don't even realise How it's consuming You Take refuge In a screen Reaching for a hand For affirmation That you, A small Birdsong voice Can exist Can be heard In this world Of noise Violent Deafening noise Artificial Put down your phone There's no hands Warm enough To embrace you in there. Just be the swan In the lake Nested In silence That she creates.
