Decisions

Breathing
hoping to taste
the sweet air
of your words
missing your arms
reaching across the horizon
of my body
missing the
nearness
of your soul
summer sun upon my
cool skin
feeling waves of life
rippling over me
truth
realization
clarity
Chasing the last rays
of the setting sun
Am I too late?

Slightly tipsy wandering

Listening to old songs
too many tired memories
spring rain
drizzling down my cheeks
washing them all away
walking
watching my feet cross over
the leaves, the black top
the freshly liberated worms
whistling to myself
I am
Afraid to look up from the ground
I am
Afraid not to
I am
getting lost in an avalanche
but
I am

Searching

My eyes are shut
and I am looking inside
Searching the shadows
But the light keeps shifting
Changing my perception
I am aching for something
solid
real
But the intesity of the light
keeps dissolving
my life
Melting the candle wax
Leaving me
alone
with my shadows

Holding my breath

Standing
swirling chalk dust
sweeps across the plains
brushes my bare legs
Looking up
I can feel the weight of the sky
Wide open
Looking for something
I lost in the light
I begin searching for stones
building my walls
something to brace myself
against the wind
Resisting the urge to get
blown away
I close my self in
and listen to the wind run by
free and wild
Thinking twice
I step outside
feet firmly planted
and inhale
