Connected

Each time

I am fooled

by trials

that appear

insurmountable.

Mountains

sprouted

from grains of dust.

I am small.

powerless.

My life

is not my own.

It has been

set in motion

by unfathomable forces.

I find myself

often

in tears

of utter confusion

delusion

despair

desolation,

overcome

with hopelessness.

 

But within my turmoil,

there are moments of

emptiness

that glisten like dewdrops

caressed by

the morning sun.

In these drops

of nectar

I find You

I find myself

Touched by infinity

I know I have not strayed.

Branded

I have a label now,

A reference,

A name to respond to,

A bandage,

To hide the unpleasantness,

Of the process,

From the world,

A healing,

That can only occur,

In darkness,

In silence,

Armed against questions,

Shielded from advice,

The clock keeps ticking,

And I keep my silence,

Undisturbed,

Undiscovered,

After a long journey,

I have found,

A temporary shelter,

Beneath this new label.

Dreams

You look at me,

You only see what you want to see,

What you wish I were.

I’m tired of fighting,

I won’t protest,

I’ll do my best.

Maybe you will change,

Maybe I will change,

Or maybe,

We will just continue to see,

What we wish to see.

I hope a day comes,

When we meet on the other side.

When this pain,

This irrational pain,

Has faded.

Maybe a day will come,

When we let go of our projections,

When we wake up,

When we are ready to see,

And willing to be,

What we really are.

Perfection.
