Reaching out beyond the dream of what you thought was real, spinning on this ball of life, head now under heel. Ready to die, to live this life so raw, alive on ledge- dancing, hurling, freeing your soul to finally stretch the edge.

the super moon

Last night I asked the angels
to show my love to me
to bring me to his splendor
awakened in my dream

Perched on the edge of a thick white cloud
I spread my wings and calling out
you heard my song and then you came
and we danced across the sky

Morning's glory gently woke me
from my soft, green grassy nest
but she dared not take from me,
you, my greatest awakening

Walking the path the whispered
pleas wafted to me from the trees
The words, unclear, I could not hear
yet I knew they spoke of you, my dear

So I ran through the streets
of this big, scary city
searching for you
in every nook and cranny

Scanning the faces of
each one in the masses
Holding my breath til
each soul by me, passed

And I wait tired in the light
on the corner in the night
Oh angels, hear my prayer
One more time- please take me there

Morning stretch

standing somewhere different
than the place you stood before
everything is different
from the ceiling to the floor

eyes wide open, seeing things
that weren't there before
miles or inches closer
to opening the door

breathing through the fire and rain
born anew with a burst of pain
knowing that although you wane the
emptiness yields joy again

trading thoughts you had
for sensations all anew
knowing that the loving matters
most in what you do

reaching out beyond the dream of
what you thought was real
spinning on this ball of life
head now under heel

then ready to die, to live this life
so raw, alive, on the ledge you are
dancing, hurling, freeing your soul
to finally stretch the edge

Alone in the night
the storm sets
The dark can't see
what is haunting
Abandoned old heart
beats steadily
in spite of the freeze
in spite of this
Icicle daggers
tear me a new
but hey, it's only love-
It'll come 'round

Let not my heart be weighted
Nor my love be blind or shaded
If my light be sadly faded
When love comes once again fated,
Knocking at my door
May two fiery souls’ union
Come to me none too soon then
With a blessed and warm reunion
Of souls' unabashed communion,
                                                                Oh love, come call on me


One day I know it'll rain on me
when bathed in yearning drops of steam,
love will wrap its quenching arms round me
i hope it feels like your sweet heat

One day the sun is gonna shine
those rays of warmth that fill the cracks
and when love pours its light o'er me
i hope it shines like your sweet smile

One day the wind will carry me
away on currents swift and free
and when love takes my breath from me
i pray my death be as sweet as kissing you

One day I know that love will dawn
not a moment too soon, nor an hour too long
with silent reverence for what has made me
now readied for what will once again be

"And if I had just one wish to wish, I would wish to wish no more." -Lala
