I keep dreaming of flashbacks
That reminisce about the future
I keep looking ahead
At days already long lived ago
I keep seeing your face when my eyes close
A face I'm yet to meet
I keep fighting each day
When the war has already been lost

What's wrong with me?

Feeling 6ft under
When I'm 30000 feet off the ground

This tear lay still on my cheek
As my mind moves around my coffin
A death bed of my own design
being buried alive with no one to help
Crying out your name
Everyday the same nightmare
Spiraling out of control
Yesterday is my tomorrow and today already happened
Someone just put me out of my misery
Please
I'm so tired

I know I'm nothing special
Not a force to be reckoned with
A Trojan without a hidden army
Just an average person
With average desires
An over-performing imagination
Takes away the pain
When life gets blurry
My kind opens up
And I dissappear for a while
someone take me away from here
The complete universe resides in you
Your eyes shine like stars
Your smile is like the cresent moon
that brightens up someone's night!
You are strong and confident like the sun
Your mind is the place where galaxies live...
And your thoughts are gracefully spread like
millions of solar systems
Still you love to live in your
earth like heart
which is filled with clouds and
waterfalls of love
You are gorgeous!
You are your own heaven...believe me!
Nothing can make you better than you. Believe me! you are precious. Love yourself for that soul that resides inside you not for what others believe or say...love yourself...you have got this!
When I put out the light
They all take flight
Even my shadow leaves at night
This is my plight
Just another day were people say that I mean the world to them
And fail to prove it
Tired af ....
The distant hollow of the high mountain pass
swallows the setting sun as it steals away southbound
behind the coastal mountain's tangerine sunset hued silhouettes
Mulberry plashed shadows pointing northward
across the evergreens outstretched dimming,
beneath the waning fade of each fleeting eventide

Sundown ebbing asunder the wafting daylight,
each gloaming of the day, helplessly a moment sooner past,
transfixed further south beyond yesterday's passing azure
The lazy days of summer escape unbounded,
nomadic as the sea I've seen sail away before;
evanescent as the beauty of the bloom summer days beheld
and the memory of the fragrance they exhale

The nebulous weight of the gravity is consciously denied
by the truths a human heart beholds
A moment’s epiphany afflicts like a rogue wave in a calm sea;
the only thing my heart ever wanted remains out of reach

Everything my heart needs consciously surrendering
to the poignant passing moment's beauty,
the falling sun at distance sets more suddenly now
Lost in the undeniable certainty
life's imminent season's change

Eyes drawn stubbornly from presence to a sky so far away,
knowing there'll be no restitution for the welling sense of loss...
A bitter sweet song mummers in the silence of the absorbing spell,
summer's sun stained pages of watermarked soul scribbles,
time tattooed reparation for the indelible ache
of a harsh grey winter loneliness

Perhaps too familiar, this whelming Déjà vu
that tears my soul;     that tugs at these roots
but cannot sever their sacred grasp
But for now, eyes fixed to the sun's
inevitable tightening tether hence —
to wear weary each fraying thread's  impending break

Each sunset leans a deeper angle southward
as it slips down through the firwood shadows;
illuminating other faraway latitudes
far beyond the distant horizon skies

The preordained continuum unfolding what will be ...
