Mummify the moments
research its components
a soul with a host
yet God owns it.
Lonely to leave
where you parted the sea
only to never know what could have been.
I swam in the Dead Sea and sunk,
does that mean I’m alive?
I lie awake at night harvesting my dreams from the soul of Abraham.
This land has been abandoned
like a Bible in a drawer at a motel,
what is the distance between
heaven and hell?
When the person sitting to your right is going one way and you were going another.
My mind held my heart hostage,
but somehow I have escaped
with only scars of chains, but no links, nothing left connecting me to past.
I wander like the wilderness
or better yet the rainforest,
cut down by a systematic “need”
And well, I need love.
We all do.
You and I have so much in common
and yet I would swallow the wind to digest the direction I need
and you would hold your mouth closed.
Fear of love poisons you, carbon monoxide.
I imagine that you are starving inside.
There is a man drowning
and God sent a boat
and here is love on your lips but you won’t open your throat?
If I have a headache from fighting my ego,
You must have migraines.
My ego is learning it has no authority
in a house where love is king
or maybe queen
It takes practice for a powerful women to let a king,
History repeats itself,
I like to think
I would have never picked the Apple,
but that type of strength may be an allusion.
I am just as vulnerable to rummage through the drawers of curiosity hoping to find
I have long been aware that even a dark room is not empty,
it holds matter.
So does it matter?
A weed strangles a flower,
and still it survives.
There is no metaphor for trust
where it exists
where it does not.
Prayer makes us stronger,
but the wolves are always hungry
during a full moon,
and the sun always sets at night,
and I am always full
of finding forever in the present.
I have no room left for distance
in my relationships.
Hold my hand,
so that I may hold your heart.
I wait for love to rise
like the breaking of sunlight
first thing in the morning,
my heart is on stage
there is one empty chair
in the audience,
the greatest show on earth?
