Moon

Walking on the beach late at night looking for sea turtles or some sort of life.

I look up at the moon shining.

Brilliant and luminous.

If you close one eye and look up at it, it’s never bigger than your thumb.

No matter how far apart we are or seem to be I wonder if you ever look up into the night sky and see the same moon as me.

Just knowing we share that much together is comforting.

Each wave is crashing onto one another continuously.

It never stops.

Leaving my mark on this seashore as my little feet make a path going up and down and around to the pier.

To my spot on the sand.

To the waves that move faster and faster towards my toes.

I’ve written down these precious words.

And as I walk down to the sea I let the water lap up around my ankles and tear out those words and release them.

They float away…

To where they will go I don’t know.

Will they sink to the ocean floor to be read by the fishes of the reef?

Or will they wash up to your shore where you will read them?

All I know is that those words belong to the sea now.

I’m free from them and the weight they held on me.

The big moon still shines down on the water and glistens bright.

Just remember this my dear lovely…

We both see the same moons bright radiant light.

Let it bring you back to me.6540274-208-k417046

Best friend

She can count how many good friends she has on one hand.

Other than that she’s always stuck in her minds wonderland.

Some people call them acquaintances.

Some people call them besties.

I call them my friends and if you want to mess with them you have to go through me.

But theres this one gal that’s as pretty as can be.

She’s put up with my madness and has always stayed dear to me.

Have you ever heard that attitudes are contagious?

Well she’s the type of girl thats attitude is worth catching.

She’s got a twinkle in her eye and a smile so bright.

Every day in class she came off almost transmitting her own ray of light.

I can admit I’m not always easy to deal with but this sweet gal was the one to push me up against the wall and tell me to snap out of it.

Leaving history class to talk in the hall,

Or valentines day keeping me company when I fell to my knees and cried about it all.

I trust her as much as she trusts me because when I had those marks she’s the one that saw.

I went to her about my deepest secrets and have told her my life.

She’s the only one to read my writing journal and read the words I wrote to cut like a knife.

The scars I’ve made and have she has tended to almost every one.

Like sister to sister she has patched me up until my tears were all done.

I can say I love her there’s no doubt about that,

She’s always been blossom helping me defeat mojojo in combat.

She has helped me keep my head up and to continue walking down the right path.

To God we both look to keep our friendship in tact.

He has finally blessed me with a bestfriend.

No matter my faults no matter her downfalls.

No matter the tears that pour down my eyes writing this like niagra falls.

A best friend is rare and she’s a precious gem in my life.

She can never be replaced because she’s always there for me as I am for her in times of need.

She is my bestest bestest friend indeed!

Coffee black and it’s white.

Bland noodles chewed at the dinner table.

Walking in and out of doors.

Sitting on chairs and floors.

One foot after another walking down bare hallways.

Mouths moving but no words or sounds uttered.

Faded smiles and empty lifeless hands.

Cold and throbbing.

Eyes blink away blank stares.

People walk around aimlessly with no cares.

Laughter a myth.

And love gone like 1800’s blacksmiths.

Pounding on that bright red iron.

What happened to all the color that our emotions put on?

Pull me out from inside.

Isn’t it mad without color?

Skin and bones.

Tough and sturdy.

Keeping out everything.

Nothing coming in.

Steady beat.

Drumming.

Pumping.

Blood flowing.

Never stopping.

Dull steady beat.

No stopping…

Beat. Beat. Beat.

Lights

Driving

Highway

Right before the street lights come on

This is my favorite time

The sun is almost gone and the sky looks like you can take a spoonful of it into your mouth and let it melt down your throat

Pairs of red in front

And no lights behind to blind you as you look back

Like a reminder to keep looking forward to the future and your destination

Foot to the floor on the accelerator

Don’t slow me down

Don’t tell me what to do

Faster faster faster

Into the darkness as the lights turn on behind me

Too much light

Racing them like they will consume me if I don’t speed up

Don’t let them get you

Beautiful Tragedy

IMG_20150823_195908

My plan,

One of my missions,

Escape reality.

Music is one way out.

But that song…

Brings up too much.

I skip it everyday but today I let it play.

I have the option.

Sink or swim?

If I swim then I’m alone.

If I let myself sink then I’ll be accompanied by the silent shadows of the dark.

It’s darker down there.

Swimming to the shore will only bring problems.

I’ll have to watch other people be happy and live their lives.

People hugging,

People laughing,

People kissing,

People smiling.

I start to swim to the shore but I give up.

But I can’t hold my breath long enough to stay under and visit the darkness.

I can’t keep bobbing up and down.

So I’m making a permanent decision.

Open my mouth.

Let the water come in and fill my lungs to bring me under to the darkness.

It’s warm and welcoming down there.

The water engulfs me and my tears can’t be seen.

My screams are just a dull noise under the surface in the deep.

Lost in the waves above me.

No longer there.

Gone.

No judging.

No trying.

No pain.

No need to breathe.

Here with my shadows and the pain.

Wallowing away.

It’s a beautiful tragedy.
