an expansion of self
my poem flows,
becoming like a liquid
inspirational waterfall of verse.

Droplets
tickle highway of air first
to land at home of page
where words can blossom.

Heartbeats are fused inside
tapestry of vellum.
as I write in song with pride.

Emotions deep swell up
to touch a readers eyes.
And moments melt away
as grace fills my passions.

Inside expanded self I sing,
hoping someone
will join in accompaniment
with their graceful moving eyes.
i swear
the Universe
inside of us grew
as we danced along to
all the pain we once knew
(may)be
i have just always
felt (more) comfortable
walking through (chaos)
maybe
it always (lead)s me
back to (me)
may more chaos lead me
but maybe
it’s a beautiful thing
that we can never be perfect
maybe in fact, there is bliss found
in the idea that there is no limit to
being more of something we want
or less of something we don’t

maybe humans arrived
with the purpose to be
perfectly imperfect

so that as we grow our awareness
to the expansiveness of our souls
we quietly choose qualities
we want to be more or less of
throughout all of our lives

to be more compassionate
to be less ******* ourselves

i mean look at us
already carrying so much
so much worthiness and beauty
but still always wanting to be more

and i don’t think it will ever stop
i don’t think there is a limit
to what we can ever be

so in a sense,
in our current now state
we may feel imperfect
as we think of all we hope to be
and know we aren’t quite there yet

but isn’t knowing
there is more to see
more to grow
more to know

isn’t that
what we came here for?

Until There Was Only Light
I looked at the darkness within
Two eyes of Light
Gave me a blink.
I smiled.
Watching expanding light
Dancing and whirling
Embracing the darkness
Until there was only Light.
Embracing the darkness
Dancing and whirling
Watching expanding light
I smiled.
Give me a blink
Two eyes of light
I looked at the darkness within
Until there was only Light.
Today I meditated to process and clear some heavy emotions.

As I sit here
in the quiet
of my room
I can feel
the expansion
of my heart
Touching
the depth
of its soul
I know
the tears
are flowing
from love

The purity
in which I
dive fully
gives rises
to a peace
so sublime,
entrancing
yet so alive

I am moved
by the beauty
in which I
surrender
Kissing the
most intimate
part of
my being
and melding
with the invisible

In that space
I am
creator
giving myself
to this dance
filled with
wisdom
and divine
grace...

tell me
who drew you in 
and made you think
the bones and joints
within your knees
the veins and nerves
mapping out your entire being
were not already complete?

who made you see
through their broken glass
who made you think
it was okay not to ask
to ask you how
it made you feel 
when they realized
they weren't going to be real
to you or to your swollen heart

you were just so beautiful to see
they just couldn't let you be
and when they fed you their falsities
they made you think you had to stay
as if half of you had gone away

when in truth—you were noting short of gold

and you should have been told
the one thing they couldn't be
was everything they knew
you needed them to be

and when this realization hits
they don't even have the heart to admit
you were everything they wanted
but couldn't be

so they just had to taste it 
they had to feel your breeze
and they take and they take
and then they leave...

but darling don't you fret

for they will never forget
the love they found in you
the love you still hold true
the love that's grown too

you needed them to help you through
so now you see that the best part of life
has always been about loving you

No words can fully
capture the depth
of emotion that
lights my soul
when I see you

It's like I'm reuniting
with you again but
for the very
first time, in vibration
with that glowing spark
of magic and promise

The emotion that
grows in my heart
swells to this
unmeasureable expansion
which surrenders me
to catch my breath

I accept the offering
in that space where
I submit to such
an exquisite love
that dances
within me, and I
feel blessed by being
touched by such
a moment.

but if we instead focus our energy
on the Love that eternally surrounds us
even whilst the walls we so delicately built
crumble to our tired feet
we will gain so much more momentum
towards finding the hidden meaning
to the lesson—to the blessing
each moment serves us a b’lesson
that we somewhere along the line
attracted to our path for self expansion
with each of our conscious choices thus far
we have manifested exactly this
for the Light we will gain
the blinding reflection of all that
our Souls are collectively becoming
love ~ so much love
and the light that lies inside
which through our becoming,
✧・゚: *comes to life *:・゚✧

Love from a place of fufillment
never love to quench a lonely thirst
let your seams seep Self-alignment
from filling up your soul-needs first

externally so much noise can exist
but you have the power to quiet it
by making space for self-awareness
its expansion is your assignment

don’t let this world distract you
from the Worth that You Shine with
all that you ever seek for isn’t lost but
deep down inside—always it thrives
and like gravity, it keeps tugging
at your Soul to Arrive
