I don’t need your advice

Without you
Birds color
Blind
Across the sky
And fields darken
Into night.

But I don’t need your advice
Or your condescension
I’d rather Walk by myself.

Love is not about
Controlling someone
It is a about letting free.

We all have holes in our chain mail
Where swords can pierce,
And you know all of mine.

So don’t shake your head
When I squirm
And fidget ,
For love is not about
Controlling someone
It is about letting free
The spirit within
And learning to let go
Of the ego
That lurks behind
The passion
That claims possession.

I don’t need your advice
Or your condescension
I’d rather Walk by myself,
Unless you can learn to love
Me for for who I am,
And for who
I want to be.

For Without you
Birds color
Blind
Across the sky
And fields darken
Into night.

People Journey

People journey
Like eyes across a map,
Walking above names
Of countries, unaware
Of steps crossing invisible
Borders.

Times of night,
Times of day, coming and going
As though a thousand miles
Never were left in the wake
Of exhaustion.

Something spinning,
Something changing, but never enough
To alter a destiny written in hearts,
Pierced by deprivation, by longing,
Never quiet long enough
To stop journeying,
Like wayfaring birds across beaches,
Sworn to secrecy
By a dream
forbidden by Impossibility.

People journey
Like eyes across a map,
Walking above names
Of countries, unaware
Of steps crossing invisible
Borders.

People Journey…

Without You

Without you
I’ve got a weightless heart,
Letting winds change my way.
I am like a bird above the sea,
Always on my way home.

Plant me in soil,
Anchor me at sea
I will drift,
Without you…

Without you
I am a prayer without direction,
A country without coordinates,
My only compass made up
of debris from a memory of you.

Plant me in soil,
Anchor my at sea
I will drift,
Without you…

Without you
I am a barren paradise,
A colorless dream…

Plant me in soil,
Anchor my at sea
I will drift,
Without you..
Without you…

We’re not the only ones

We came here as children in search of a dream,
But now we are bleeding from the past,
Again and again we make mistakes that will last.
We break laws like glasses,
For we don’t understand at all
The meaning of walls.

We run until our souls unfold,
Not worrying about wasted time,
Until our story is told.
We stay until the lessons are learned,
Sharp enough to cut the corners
Of the world.

We brave the weather to mend our scars
Fixing shards like model planes
But we’re not the only ones
To love without a perfect heart.

We close our eyes to silver linings
At the risk of breaking apart,
Stabbing blue skies to find the stars.

We run until our souls unfold,
Not worrying about wasted time,
Until our story is told.
But we’re not the only ones
To love without a perfect heart.

Are you the black tide pulling me under?

You are a complicated puzzle with too many parts
Playing pieces to fit with my heart
Didn’t think we needed the underground to stand
Didn’t think I needed your parachute to land.

Are you the black tide pulling me under?
Or a landslide pushing me out of my mind?
Are you working overtime to build a bridge to my heart?
Or are you a hurricane tearing me apart?

Figments of your paradise on the ground
But all I do is hiding in your smile
Jumping craters with claws and stakes
Will you catch the landslide,
or let me crash and break?

Are you the black tide pulling me under?
Or a landslide pushing me out of my mind?
Are you working overtime to build a bridge to my heart?
Or are you a hurricane tearing me apart?
