some contrast…

~

some

would say

i wear my darkness well

~ too well ~

in fact…

this may very well be true

but

without

‘some’

darkness for contrast ~

how will one ever see

my light shine through?

who… will…

~

Who will be the one

with the courage to embark

on a journey

to lands still yet unknown?

To face the darkness

and

navigate the cracks

which lead

to a wide open door?

To surf the waves

~ the highs and lows ~

and

stand strong

like

a beacon

on the shore?

~

~

Who will be the one

with a fearless heart

and

the dedication

to walk

into

my

soul

&

stay

?

“Falling in love is like striking a match ~

It can be arresting

and

enlightening

or

it can burn like hell.”

choreography of a broken dream

~

he reached out ~ she took his hand ~

he spun her around

while

pulling her in.

he lifted her up ~ he set her down ~

he walked away

and

she cried.

~

no more music ~ no more light ~

alone on stage

with

only tears.

~

knowing a love

could no longer be,

her forever dream

had

disappeared.

whiskey

~

he would pour himself into a shot glass

and

drink his soul away ~

away from those he loved dearly

and

the world around him

~ everyday ~

~

he would bathe his spirit in a slow, slow burn ~

allowing the heat to dissolve his pain.

he did not care to live his life ~

only

to drown himself in shame.

~

there was nothing we could have done,

except stand by him

and

reluctantly watch

ζ

and

ζ

love a man with a spirit

so broken,

so conflicted

and

so despondently

lost
