heart speak

What do you do when you live the alternative?

Just keep swimming.

Just keep swimming.

Well, yes.

But it's become so much more than that for me

When I decided to focus on right now, everything changed.

I go to sort things out

Dig up things I need to make peace with.


Quiet my head.

It's no longer filled with things other people's said

I'm ruling me now.

Guilt free.

I'm actually going for it!

I'm following the heart speak,

And I've never felt better.

Experience. Freedom. Love. Now.

wet mop

It's funny how this wind blows

It's strange how the temperature drop

Drags emotion

Across the floor like a wet mop

Streaks and smears

Tell stories of fears

And grudges held throughout the years

this time

Some time ago
Could have sworn we'd be together by now.
I walk like I'm floating down the road.
This time I let it go
The closest thing to what I imagined him to be
In the flesh
Kiss hit like a fist with a smile.
It's just words
The things I tread on to stay afloat.
Bad time to have found you
Still on my mind
After all this time,
It's time to go.

As If To Say Goodbye

Shaken up?
HA! More like stirred
Into some unknown dimension
Where silence and obscurity reign
And, with all the thoughts in my head
And all the fears I behold
I lost my composure.
The silence shattered like glass
My eyes like clouds
Began to pour into the earth, your hands
Flowers didn't bloom like I wanted them to
The water didn't quench
It just turned into a river
And the tide carried you away.
While I watched from the only tree in the desolate dimension,
Growing only out of the possibility that I saw...
It swayed in the wind,
As if to say goodbye
As you faded into the distance
Day turned into night
And with the rising sun
Came feelings of hope.
Although I was alone
Near the edge of the river
There was a daisy that had grown
