she stopped searching for the light

in times of darkness

and instead, set the world aglow

one smile at a time

your silence screams my name
captivating my desire

but it's all in my head

because my ears long for the words
that will never be said

the wounds from life's "almost's"
dissect the heart in ways that are impossible to explain

the sheer concept of a "could have been"
is full of mystery and deep disappointment

a longing to know if one aspect was different
maybe everything would have been

you were
a few sentences
on a page
in a chapter
of her life long book

but those sentences
were compelling enough

to give her hope
that future chapters
could be rewritten

and, maybe, she'd find you then.

in the chaos of my mind
i found stillness in your eyes

Love isn't something you trip and fall into
not when it's right-

Love should be exhilarating
but calm and steady.

It's not an accident because
it should be purposeful and safe.

When it's really love
you won't ever land-

Because you'll be too busy
rising, to have ever fallen.

she was wiser than most
and overly cautious at times
because of this.

her quiet observations
were the reasons
for her hesitation.

she kept her distance
with all but a few.

a few, who knew the woman
she really was.

the woman of fury and strength
that lived inside-
her outwardly coy demenour.
