holding on but trying to let go

~

i try to filter out the dark from the light ~

think of his laugh, his voice,

his smile, his eyes

but

with the light comes darkness ~

the moment i last saw him as he walked away

and

the horror of finding

what i could never have imagined on that day ~ ~ ~

~ ~ ~

~ ~ ~

how do i hold onto the beauty of his light

without

grasping the shadows of darkness?

~

~

miss you

thus ~

~

if you feel the sting of my pain,

will you be afraid of my tears?

~

if you taste my wants and desires,

will you turn away from my darkness and fears?

~

~

will you listen to my dreams sing

or

to my heart begging to be loved

or

will the person

i am

scare you

~ thus ~

you turn away

from me

and

run

?

modus operandi

i must always

jump off the beaten path

in which

to find my way

on the beaten path

~ just as ~

i need

to function outside of the box

in which

to find my way

inside

the box

getting by…

trudging through the muck and mire each day

and

for

what

?

to make it through another day

and

tomorrow

and

the next

and

the next…

and

the next…

things

..

.

nothing is something

but

something is never nothing

something is something

and

i wish this something

is

nothing

a collage

when i infuse

the prosaic and the extraordinary

with

a hearty blend of love

i have created

a mosaic

which is my life

implicit – i am

°

i

allow

you to see

what i want you

to see and what it

is – a reflection of –

the me that i am and fight

as each day and each night passes

into another year of life lived.

i allow you to see the me – i hate.

pieces

in pieces scattered along the way

through many years

on a path

with many twists and turns

some large

some small

some connected

some distant

all part of the same journey

where do these pieces go

when no longer a part of the path?

emerge into something new

or

stay the same

yet

evolved

fade

and

die

or

maybe

go nowhere –

existing in the shadows…

waiting for the chance

to break out

&

INSPIRE

abounding uncertainty
