Standstill Muse


oh the bounds of inspiration that bloom out of the depths of despair

moving by volition 

bursting at the seems with a plurality of contradictions

the fall air rolls down my spin as the moonlight drains into my eyes

i am struck with an epiphany of life light and love

blindsided by a symphony of thoughts stars and peace

the standstill muse has found me again got my mind and my hearin a sea of gridlock

i am overwhelmed with dreams but my low self-esteem has ravaged my hopes i just scavenge the tropes that once fell in line

all the movement inside 

but  

i am stuck

lost in your eyes

Dreaming. Leaving. 


Life is only a series of leaving. 

A life long account of dreaming. 

Every face I see,

Every heart I know,

Ends up leaving me in the cold. 

My dreams are the only friends I know,

But even on dark days, I’m left alone. 

Lone wolf,

Forgotten doe,

My bitter thoughts are my only foe. 

Everything keeps leaving except the demons inside,

Them, I pry, I be, I cry,

Please leave me!

Please let me free!

When people forget you, 

When your dream has met its end,

Why is it the good leaves so fast?

Why is it that the bad always comes back?

Serendipitous Symphonies


Splendid speeches spool slowly from the locked away mind

Our distanced hopes and dreams this world would never wish us to find

Sincere songs of souls and sweet goodbyes

Every dream a snipet

Each thought a line

Together

Intended to enchant the divine

A symphony of people and places across time

A message of serendipity

Of fullness

To thrive

Each piece a measure

Of all of our lives.

Paper Telescope 


Formed from inginuity,

Forged in imagination,

A vessel of special interactions,

To construct and display images rarely seen by men. 

A view of the heart,

A picture of the soul,

Panoramas of pure poetry skirting  across the sky. 

Once our hearts are released they take to the sky. 

So every night, 

As I take out my delicate telescope,

I feast upon paintings of love,

Displays of devotion across the heavens.

Dreams and tears collide,

With sights beyond measure.

At every dawn the map is folded away,

Leaving our paper telescopes to trace the pathways forged in darkness by the illumination of our hearts. 

Every day is a journey. 

Every night an adventure. 

I left my heart in the stars,

So that’s where you’ll find me.

Dreaming on the Horizon


Upon the lines this world has drawn,

Light lies licking the blooming morning sky.

I am able to see for miles and miles in every direction,

But every plane of vision stops at the line.

Not too long ago the world ended at those edges,

Pieces of a box we all once lived in.

Confined humanity to the reaches of the eyes,

Not believing in the reaches of the mind.

Dreams, they exude up and out, 

Sink and rise, flutter and fly.

Skip across the waters,

Somersault every mountain,

Traverse devastating deserts,

Conquer crippling tundras.

No horizon can hold back dreams.

No prison can suppress,

Let not our thoughts depress,

Or this world bring duress,

To the ravishing creations we design.

We are the architect of not just our future, but the past and the present too.

Live your life through dreams,

And live on the horizons,

Free.
