Lost

Three Days Grace Vivo

Anyone who knows me knows this is one of my favorite bands. It’s actually a family favorite-as soon as my brother in law gets his guitar fixed, we are going to do a horribly sung cover of this song (with yours truly singing off key like a beast). Anyway. The following sappy triolet is what I came up with after listening to this song. Enjoy, make fun, whatevs. huzzah!

Losing myself was never so fun
As when I was lost in you
It was precious moments in the sun
Losing myself was never so fun
Where had it all begun
This magical thing called you
Losing myself was never so fun
As when I was lost in you.

Light of the Ancients

Searching and seeking but there’s nothing there
Sun’s light has threatened to burn out
My arms dance above me and find the air

My heart cries but my eyes produce no tears
Light of the ancients winks out
Searching and seeking but there’s nothing there

My lit soul caught in darkness and warfare
Whole being suffering a drought
My arms dance above me and find the air

Millions of people, none of them aware
What happens when the world blacks out
Searching and seeking but there’s nothing there

Desires of the infinite laid bare
Hourglass sands have washed out
My arms dance above me and find the air

My heart cries but my eyes produce no tears
The ancients’ light has winked out
Searching and seeking but there’s nothing there
My arms dance above me and find the air

Cobwebs

I sigh and

brush the cobweb

from my face

a stillness

settles in

close my eyes to fall asleep

but i hear the sun

praying softly

as the moon

dances and twirls

my candlelit musings

extinguish guiltily

as the wind

admonishes

my soul

a half hearted smile

as i grab the vine

for balance

the moon whispering songs

as my hair turns white

my angry eyes lie

my beating heart

speaks true

so i will dream

with the breath of two

Sunbeam

Painting by Victoria Frances

 

I caught a sunbeam on it’s way down to the cellar.

It enchanted the air with tranquility

and warmed our hearts with joy.

A sunbeam to warm you,

A moonbeam to charm you,

A sheltering angel

so nothing can harm you.

~Irish Blessing

Clouds of Longing

Painting by Jason Chan

The morning sun is shining yet there is a chill in my bones I cannot shake. I peek through the clouds of longing; searching once more for your presence.  I sledgehammer the wall of your resistance with raining love – but I still gain no entry.  Oh, how my heart pounds when I see your lovely face! My hands would love to caress your cheek and sing my heart’s song to you.  Please don’t go – remain in my sight until the moon climbs into the darkened sky.  My tears raining down from on high have grown a rose garden that shall warm your heart.  I will take flight on our love if you would only let me in.  From the moment I felt your soul’s essence I have sought to unify our hearts.  You are my other – I shall travel down from these clouds – to be unashamed in your presence.  The earth rumbles with my heartache – as you disappear from my sight once more. How long shall I await your return?! I will wait on my cloud of longing – slumbering with peace – the stars my blanket – the moon my laughing pillow.
