Pieces of the human soul become blended
like potions in a cauldron. The body
houses a soul once whole. Like a puzzle,
pieces of the past stick to new memories.
Love is the glue that holds together
parts of my heart once severed. Days
go on: the present becomes the past. Life
slows down only when we do. It’s true;
the glass we look through is fragmented:
a mosaic of sorts. Lines often blur. Things
don’t seem to fit. There’s a growing list.
You will be okay. Do as you once wished.
Like most things in the world,
I am fragile. I don’t want to be
damaged beyond repair. All
life is precious and delicate.
Some of us bend to no end.
Most bend till’ they break.
Some are happy as others
pretend. Handle with care.
I am fragile. I want to last:
no need for broken glass.
I assume others are fragile,
too. Only if the others knew.
Be careful with those you
hang around; they just might
break you down. Enjoy
the challenge of growing old.
Believe in your soul that
you can avoid some damage.
Be fragile: handle with care.
We all got crosses to bear.
One stone can break
a bone or it can kill
two birds with a throw.
One stone can shatter
a glass home or it can
help build a house
of one’s own. One stone
can make the difference
between what is known
and what is shown.
One stone to never be
left alone: as strong
as my own backbone.
Stones are thrown
till’ they are needed for
statues and tombstones.
The image I painted looks so strange;
I don’t know where I went wrong.
I continue to stare: hoping for change.
My eyes have been hurting for too long.
What am I seeing? My version of you?
I stayed grounded when time flew.
I wanted clear skies when I felt blue.
I painted an image all too true.
The image I saw started to fade;
I still picture it the way it looked.
The canvas I used creates a shade.
I still watch your movie as I’m booked.
I paint an image before I leave.
I stared and stared as time passed.
I paint an image before I leave
as everything blackens all too fast.
Sit in. The front.
Just don’t. Look back.
Wish for. Happy days.
Cloudy skies. Rain Stays.
Push hard. With words.
Written down. Too absurd.
Find yourself. Stay honest.
Live free. Die less.
Find ways. To express.
What you. Know best.
Lead from. The soul.
Find love. Until full.
Spend time. Any way.
Learn why. Be okay.
Flip over. Hour Glass.
One time. Going fast.
Time spills. through cracks.
Slipping by. Going black.
