In shallow water you pulled me close
And kissed the top of my head.
You wiped off some water from your face as I tipped toe
And savored that kiss that we have thirst and hungered for.

So familiar that smile that could sail a thousand ships.
So familiar this gentleness that transcends time like it never ended, it just flows on and on.
I, on the edge of that yacht looking upon you as the Amber sun sets.
So gentle the breeze
As we cruise along,
You knowing me
the me that I’ve grown into.
So familiar that we don’t exchange much words just glances in exchange for spoken ones
I’m thankful for that your familiar
My comfort in you.
Your familiar drapes over me like a blanket as the sun dips it’s head into the sea.
The beginning and the end.
I picked the ink up to smear the pages
Heart tumbled over
And emotions ran.
It didn’t end like I wanted
Strings coming undo
And all the loosen ends
You didn’t give up easily
And i trembled over 6 feet deep
Coming from that end.
We didn’t seem to matter
Yet we came together with ease.
A cocktail of endless trouble
A spirt of calm before the split.
And now in terms of not so endearment,
Our eulogies and simple words
I just want to hold on to it.
Walking beside You,
I will not fear.
You are the banner waving over me,
cheering me on in the darkness of the night.
Walking beside You
I will quiver no more.
I shall not fear
when all around me fails.
When the walls start to crumble,
I know you are my rock and shield.
I shall not tremble knowing your word is a double edged sword of truth.
Slice all my doubts oh Lord
and slay my weakness.
How could I fear when
Your love surrounds me.
Pulling me closer to higher solid ground with each failure.
Hold me tight
And I’ll cling on to you Lord.
For with you I shan’t ever
” A winter walk in Prague ”
That sound that snow makes as you sink your boots in.
The air as you try to exhale
That puff of smoke or is it mist?
Standing on the bridge and looking out into the city lights.
Caught in a world of my own.
Frozen in that moment the beauty of Prague around me.
The stones and statues laid like immortals anchored to the ground.
I try to figure out what they are trying to tell me and imagine the stories they could tell if they might.
Some parts of the bridge scares me a little
And I see shadows in the twilight.
Still, I linger and capture the beauty of it
And try to capture a snowflake with the tip of my tongue as walk on slowly crossing that bridge.
Image : I took this picture while we were crossing it in 2010 🙂 I truly loved that feeling of being there. I miss snow.
I miss your silly face and your lips on mine
I play it in rewind
Rewind and rewind and rewind
I’m like the wind and you the feather floating into my dreams
Tormenting my thoughts and giving me aches and pains
We cannot unwind
We can’t remain
Just sail it away to the atmosphere
And keep the memories in a pocket for another clear sky day
But for today I shall remain in my isolated isle
Recording the sounds and the swishing of the sheets as we laid
And empty promise we had whispered
Still lingers, lingers, lingers
In the bottom of my mind.
No one knows the rage that builds and brews within me,
Not even you.
I am that buoy in the middle of the dark ocean.
Bopping for the sake of bopping,
not knowing its purpose or destination.
The calm spilling over.
The rage boiling over.
Waiting to be undone.
Tearing at the seams and my cup running over.
I am the calm and the rage waiting to burst and be done.
