Contemplation

beach2013

As I walk along this sand covered patch of earth, the wind cool upon my flesh, bringing the waves to a crashing end, just inches from my feet; it’s hard for me to fathom that there are people dotting the same world, who woke to this day, hearts filled with hatred, souls set on death and destruction; under the same beautiful sun that kisses my skin even now.

Self Disclosure

She doesn’t want to be
The light of anyone’s life
She can’t be the reason
For someone’s existence

She’s not responsible for
Making the world tolerable
She can’t give or share
Something that’s not there

She’s long since
Forgotten the man
But she’ll never forget
Something he once said

“My greatest fear for you,
is that while you sit alone,
along the rocky shores of life,
you’ll forget that your light is
a beacon for others to see by.”

She wonders if
Anyone knows
Or even thought
For just a moment

How dark ones path
Can quickly become
Pitch so black
As a starless sky

When others choose
Consciously or not
To use that light
Giving nothing in return

les amoureux

enmeshed

When the world around grows dark and quiet,
finally coming to rest in silence;
two souls come together,
intertwine and mesh with the night.
Those are the best hours.
Those are their hours . . .
