Now She Sleeps

Now She Sleeps

We had to leave her

I wonder if she is cold?
They put her on ice.
Frozen in Time.
No more.
They left her
in the dark.
She could not find her way to me.
They took her shoes
gave her a box
left us a crystal drop.

Will I see you again?
In Heaven?
Can I hug you there?
Will they let me?
Can I kiss you?
Like I did not here?

For now I'll let you sleep.

The Runaway

The Runaway

I am running away
my mind 
works in steps
that quickly 
run away
from defects
that scream
 "No next
yesterday or today!"
I chase away
the doubts
they lodge 
they sprout
     they suffocate
to death
the dreams
dying to come out.
So I lay
to see, 
the metamorphic me.


I love to write and love to speak. But words are hard for me. To communicate and not cause some kind of offence seems impossible, in this world that we live in. They look so simple on a page, so harmless and even inconsequential. But once uttered and given life, they can grow bigger and bolder that any magical beanstalk. Yet, you are expected to say words, in order to be understood, but then using words causes more confusion and misunderstanding than you could have imagined. Say a word like sorry, for example, in and of itself is sincere, but others may see it as a jeer and swear you meant offence when none was intended.

Words make you vulnerable because others attach so much meaning to an offhanded comment. Never say next time to someone who is desperate. For when you say next time, the next fifteen seconds could be that time. and you are not ready.

Words cause too much emotion to get loose and then your goose is cooked! Who said “passion is energy”, never knew how words filled with passion can sap you of yours. To tell the truth, may cause offence and so we lie to cover it up and then we all lose. Forgive me Father for my words, but then you say it again! You sit there being quite good and content, then someone comes to stir you with words: So and so is no good… and bam! we are on the gossip train. Words can lift you up and tear someone else down. You have to be very careful of your words, in this world we are living in.

Words can be your saviour to repel the demons in your life but words can also entangle you and keep you in a prison. So, be careful of your words because they can bring life to the dying.
