Rock

{I've got lots or writing on myspace that I don't want to lose - periodically I'm goign to transfer pieces over here to share with you}

Rock (Feb. 5, 2008)

We lay still on that rock overlooking the water

Soaking in the heat and hypnotized by the breeze dancing across soft leaves

Strangers play chaotic around us

It's here that we are able to find silence

Where we forget that we are headed down separate paths

Yours to the world and mine to the four walls and tiny voices I call home

We've always loved these places together

Taken the time to unwind where our lives intersect

And I always find you inside of me when I imagine my tomorrows

My beaches, my forests, my books, my calm

I take you there with me, to where I can't let go

To where we don't have to say goodbye

Here is where you'll stay, and where I'll find us should we part

You can always meet me in the middle, in your mind

And for a moment we'll rewind

Taking back what we fought so hard to find.

I have lots of stuff over at myspace too. I was going to print it all out before I deleted my account. This idea is good. I didn't think of that.

J. This is so beautifully written and should be published (in my opinion). I am in awe of the talent you and NJ have in the writing world. You both write from the heart and soul. Love, A.E.

The knowing.

You settled into my dream. Stared me from my sleep. And told me it was time for a birth.  I asked if I could stay by your side.  A tender “no” was pushed from your lips. I stood to leave while the others danced around me. Your fear and my rejection walked me out of that dream.
That morning, grief was born. It poured from my body for 7 straight days.
You ghosted my life with coffee, clowns, and diamonds - A knowing that slipped between us. Then a person of your making began to stain my thoughts. He received the words I couldn’t say to you. And we connected over the beauty and pain you left behind.
We both miss your song.

Impaired Judgement

I live a life of impaired judgement. That’s why the wildest flowers rush to bloom in my arms. And stories filled with truth boom inside my ears. Your stories. His. Hers. And, my stories.
I can’t sleep with all these rules. The air is too thin. I want to learn to thrive in the thick of it. And, melt magnificently in the heat of it.
Unravel and tangle into all new knots. Find a way to slip through the cracks and expand to create space. Experiment with a stance that is completely still and strong. Then, crawl desperately towards the feet of everything I am afraid of.
Thrash around. Kick up dirt. And, rise again covered in messy, beautiful life.

Sedum

Press the seed of this story just inside my lips
I will nurture it with warm breath and a low hum
Let it dance from the tip to the cup of this tongue
Germinating
Articulating
Then tuck it safe inside my cheek for later
When it's time to swallow it whole
