Wild Heart

She tried to rewrite the story

About the one that got away,

With the pen in her hand

She wielded her power,

The magic in her soul coming to life

As she wove a world with her words,

But In the midst of her fantasy

She discovered the reality

That they were never meant to be,

Even if everything changed

The ending would remain the same,

For the love she deserved

Was more than he could give,

She finally let that dream go

Setting her heart free on the page

Gone but Never Forgotten

I thought I could erase you

But it doesn’t work that way

The remnants of the pencil marks

Are always visible on the page,

At times I trace over them

My Fingertips grazing your memory,

The parts that are in ink

Can still be seen beneath

The white stripe I placed over them

As it chips away with time

And my nails pick at the rest,

I thought I could wash you away

Like words written in the sand

But your name is in the stars

Forever lighting up the darkness

Illuminating my sky,

Letting you go didn’t work

My soul has other plans,

I’ve decided to keep you here with me

In my heart is where you’ll stay

From now until forever

A piece of you will remain

Almost

I dreamed of you last night

You were so close

but just out of reach

Crossing the same path

A few minutes too late

Our lives like parallel lines

Running along the course together

But never intersecting again

Consciousness (Poem)

I am the Wind blowing in your hair

and the Air that fills your lungs,

I am the Butterfly landing lightly on your shoulder

And the birds chirping in your ear,

I am the sand between your toes

And the tickle on the tip of your nose,

I am the Sun surrounding you with warmth

Shining down on you in love,

I am the song playing on your radio

And the rhythm of your beating heart,

You are the leaves rustling among my trees,

I am the Ocean, and you are a wave,

I am the Moon, and you are one of my stars,

I am inside you and all around you,

Don’t you feel it, can’t you see

I am you, and you are me.

In Another Life (Poem)

When the World falls apart

and everything crumbles around me

I find myself reaching

for something, someone,

A Light in the Darkness

The thread of familiarity

A reminder of home,

The place my soul knows

Pulling me there in my dreams,

As I cling to the invisible tie

Between you and I,

When I close my eyes

I see you in the space between,

Until someday when we’ll meet again

In another time, another life
