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
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.

The
stars went
where you are
now, in that darkness
where Sun does not shine.
Strying Jan 16
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

A note to her
eurus Nov 2021
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

When I Now Sit And Write...
The Rhymes That I Write SHINE...
Just Like The BRIGHTEST Sunlight... !!!

But... ONLY To Those...
Who DON’T Live In Denial... !!!

The Words That I Quote...
In My Poetic Lines...

Are REALITY Driven... !!!
So Are NOT Verses Written...
To Embrace Submission...
To Falsified Visions... !!!

They Deal In Straight Spitting...
So Relate... Lyricism...
That’s Built To Use Scripture...
That REJECTS Weak Positions...
That Keeps The Truth... Hidden...

They Shine In BRIGHT MINDS...
That Are NOT Those Inclined...
To Move Like Blind Mice...
That’s Right... Three A Time... !!!

Like Wine That Is Fine...
Their Vintage Is Minted...
In Old Shrines Designed...
To Store Words SO PURE...
That They Cannot Be Bought...
By The Poor Or By Lords...

Because... There’s NO PRICE...
Placed On Words For The WISE... !!!

Or... Popping of Corks...
For The Drinking of Thoughts...
That Are Meant To SKYWALK...

Because of The Force...
With Which They Teleport... !!!

They SHINE In The Face...
of Deceitful Folklore... !!!

Because of The TRUTH...
That CANNOT Be ERASED...

Refuted Or Muted...
Or Quickly Polluted...
To Breed Mass Confusion... !!!

They SHINE And Cause Movements...
That HURT Institutions...
That Deal In ABUSES...
And Movements So RUTHLESS...
That They Should Be NEUTERED... !!!

Because They Are DARK... !!!
And Show Little Heart...
Because of The Path...
That Leads Them To Darth...
And Palpatine Sharks... !!!

While What I Write Charts...
A Way To The LIGHT...
That Shines Like Moonlight...
On The CLEAREST of Nights... !!!

ENLIGHTENING Thinkers...
To Take Off The Blinkers...
That Restrict Their Vision... !!!

By Shining Like WISDOM...
That Frees Minds From Prisons...
of... Limited Thinking... !!!

Like I Said They Are Driven...
By Scripture That’s Written...
To Paint HONEST Pictures...
of How We Are Living... !!!

No Need For Petitions...
Or Thinking Conditioned...
To Keep Thoughts Restricted... !!!

Just Written Inscriptions...
That Truly Are... FREE...
Like We Humans SHOULD BE... !!!

To... OPEN OUR MINDS...
And Our Eyes To What’s RIGHT... !!!

Instead of DENY...
What It Is To Live Life...
By FREEING Ourselves...
From A Place Where We Dwell...

Where Freedom's DENIED...
By Those Who Divide...

These Rhymes That I Write...
Are NOT Written For Pride...
Awards... Or A Prize... !!!

They Are Driven To Find...
People WILLING To FIGHT...

To Let LOVE And UNITY.....

Be Things That... ETERNALLY...

........ “ SHINE “.......
There are many things that shine, however there are a few that need to, that continue to be denied !
