before finding solace in the meadow that lies in your eyes,
I found peace in the way silken lavender would melt into an orange & pink sorbet; but as I lie here now, cradled in the comfort of your arms, I find that I dread sunrise most find the dark unsettling — shutting themselves off when midnight strikes; but in the moonlight, is when we shine the brightest — when we thrive, when we are the most alive
she used to breathe poetry
out of sadness, out of heartache, out of everything that hurts. but now she speaks words that give light and life, words that encourage, words that fills someone's soul with gladness. she is you.
stars went where you are now, in that darkness where Sun does not shine.
like my guitar
and your eyes and the way you looked that night and the stars in June in the big Vermont sky and the way my heart always shined around yours.
Look in the mirror and see what I do
A beautiful woman, and that woman is you Conquering the obstacles life puts in your way You pick yourself up when the worlds in disarray The first few days are the hardest days I've learned this fact in a number of ways But I see you walking with such great pride So why are you worried, put those concerns aside And one day, again, you'll be riding high So ignore all the bad things that keep passing by Just stay level headed, focus on your dream Things will come around, they ain’t as crazy as they seem And you will find in a moments time That you will be stronger and that you will shine -AJT
A note to her
this facade has cost me damages beyond repair
bridges to ashes glitter to sand i feel undeserving of looking up the sky how foolish of me to think i'd ever shine as bright my fear coalesce into a person and i am running running as fast as i can exhaustion sitting heavy on my back chains wrapping around my ankles i trip over the roots of the past and suddenly i am falling down a rabbit hole with no end in sight the stars, they are more stunning than i recall i have never seen as many as tonight oh, they twinkle, they wink at me as i fall down deeper into the earth dear stars, you must forgive me for my shameless mistake, okay? okay.
life really is
sunshine and rainbows if you choose to see it even in the dark clouds that hang over our heads and the lonely in our beds there is light that softly shines ahead and it is constant with kaleidoscopic colors that blossom from the pain your soul once led the sunshine that follows is the blanket of warmth that you never even knew you’d been yearning for and eventually when it pours you’ll start asking for more because you know that the growth is what you came here for and when your heart breaks watch it shine from the cracks glowing ~ without waver~ as you mend yourself back with more reason .to be. and more clarity to see you are all that you need you are the moment you are e x p e r i e n c i n g and it is perfect sit back and enjoy the dream
