Goodnight (The Joy of Living a New Day)

Nothing was asked of the night except to keep me cradled in the sea of it’s shadows…

Think nothing of me… be non-objective while listening to cries of my anxieties that during my waking moments I am unable to find the words needed to express myself yet when I close my eyes…

The only cause for my parting lips is to exhale…

I dream… I wonder and wander…

Become lost in worlds composed from fragments of every experience in my life that are foreign all the same and I do not wish to be found…

Here where I am hidden from the outside world to see, there is a chill in my bones…

The longing for flesh and blood to insulate this free soul roaming uncharted territories far from home… for the sunlight to warm my skin…

For a new day to take place of the darkness where I was able to leave yesterday behind in the darkness…

Perseids ( A Walk Into the Soul)

My walk is one attempted in complete silence… Closing my eyes and listening only to the repetition of the muffled drumming in my chest to echo locate the core of my being in the darkness…

Where there is only me and my shadow that have become one with the sightless background… memories depict images that have become only to distract me… and I do not wish to see anything…

For all that has set in line with my vision has failed my heart… Taken everything and have given nothing in return, except for the burdened weight each thought… and since there is no peace in that my walk proceeds…

Hoping at some point that blind faith will lead me to either the edge of the earth or the end of the world leaving nothing but space surrounding me and the light of the stars before they fall.

Blank Tapes

What is it about the mystery of absence that compels us…

In the realm of negative space we create images of love ones that console us.

The darkness no longer seems so void of life and alone because the pictures in our minds are connected directly to our hearts and our belief in love brings our counters close enough to touch…

But in the end all there is; is the air we breathe… Taken in deeply as we absorb the silence around us and bring it within…

Holding that breath triggers a temporary euphoria… then a moment of clarity upon exhalation… Peace…

We miss, we remember, we do our best never to forget and we love…
