I am…

On my journey to knowing myself, I find I’m a mass of contradictions…

a fragrance of a forestI am the fragrance
of a forest,
embedded stillness,
gently flawless…

I am a torrent of erratic movement,
free falling,
life translucent…

I am an ocean of mercurial tones,
ebbing and flowing
secrets unknown…

I am a river,
intense and noble,
bubbling radiance,

I am a flower,
wholesome and tender,
blooming in sunshine
deeply centered…

I am a melody,
yet serene,
harmonious pitch,
sometimes extreme!

I am a whisper on the breeze,
almost forsaken
hard to appease…

I am a paradox, containing light,
aware of darkness
yet bright…

I'm a paradox
I’m a fragrance
within a forest.
Embedded stillness,
gently flawless.

I’m a torrent
erratic movement.
Free falling into
life translucent.

I’m an ocean,
mercurial tones.
Ebbing and flowing
secrets unknown.

I’m a river
intense and noble.
Bubbling radiance,

I’m a flower
wholesome and tender.
Blooming in sunshine
deeply centered.

I’m a melody
buoyant and serene.
Harmonious pitch
sometimes extreme.

I’m a whisper
floating on a breeze.
Almost forsaken
hard to appease.

I’m a paradox
containing light
aware of darkness
gloomy yet bright.

delirious 2
Well acquainted
with darkness
I was consumed
way beyond my
expiration date
I lay dying
in delirium
waiting for the end
devoured by
my own hysteria
bleeding out
into the constellations
sucked into
a timeless void
a black hole

“Look deep into my eyes
you’ll see the abyss
you’ll see the lies”

A force beyond
my imagining
awakened me
breathed life
into my death
I let the winds
of destruction
take me
storms blew me
back to life
naked and ashamed
near to death
my breath restored
my ravaged heart
found a beat
in powerlessness
I arose

“Look deep into my eyes
you’ll see a spark
you’ll see love arise”

I’m not afraid of the darkness
nor am I startled by the light!
