Ode to Early Morning 2

Ode to Early Morning
I woke up cold this morning, like an early morning wind had decided to hang it’s hat at my bedpost. So I pulled the covers closer but the chill wouldn’t leave me. I tossed and turned and finally I went to the window and watched the dawn break. I saw the brightness spread across the ...

Let Go 1

Let Go
It’s time to let you go. It’s time I let you all go. All the heartbreaks, all the unspoken tears, all the bottled anger and the hurt, the deep, indescribable hurt. It’s time to set you free.   I can’t move forward with you hanging onto my every move, weighing my heart down. I can’t ...

Secrets

Secrets
Tell me your secrets, the parts of yourself that you keep caged, The forgotten, tender places where you don’t often go. Tell me how you lust for life. How you ache for something more. Speak to me of your cravings, of your desires, of the you you wish to be. Tell me something I haven’t ...

Listen 1

Listen
Take life slowly… Like a single breath before the rain. Drink in the gentle mist of uncertainty. Feel the freshness of the moment on your skin. Know that you are safe. Home is here. We are waiting, to call to you, to touch you, to know you. We are the beloved and we are you. ...

I Need

I Need
Give me a time. Tell me when. Appoint an hour at which I  will know the truth. The point in my exhale where my heart’s course will become clear to me. I have no idea how to live in this chaos anymore. I’ve waited and waited for the illumination to arrive and it hasn’t. Maybe ...

Finally. 2

Finally.
Finally, it came. The moment I’d been searching for. The moment where I was, I am, enough. Because I am. I am enough for me, in my life, on my journey and I don’t need anymore. I may want more. I may miss the way you smile, I might yearn for a baby’s warmth or ...

Ode to Love

Ode to Love
When you whisper my name across the still of the dark, black night, I am home. When you call my heart to yours and tell me the story of your past, I am comforted. When you take my hand and encircle it with your own, I am free.   I realize now that I have ...

Soul Reminder

Soul Reminder
I had one of those moments today where your inner self, the soul beneath your ego, reminds you of who you are. I was on the elliptical at the gym (I know, so mundane!) and I was thinking about an upcoming trip and how I would be received by others, what they would think of ...

My Prayer

I’m searching for meaning inside my despair, inside my confusion, amongst the rubble of a life blown apart. And it’s beautiful really. To not know where one is, to be lost inside the up, between the down. Maybe I’ve had too much rum, or maybe it’s the subtle sounds of Sade tantalizing my soul, but ...

One of those nights

One of those nights
It’s one of those nights where my soul is restless and my longing is roaming about, unfettered, inside of me. I haven’t yet grown into the life that’s waiting for me and the life I have is expanding, ever so slowly to meet the newness, And the pause between the two lives is heady and ...
