For the Longings of the Bard’s Vessel’s Vein

Ghostly thoughts formed from the heart tricking the mind to act on its request.

With filial piety the mind must acquiesce.

The mind does rule the heart to beat,

By the proclivity for the mind to obsess for the longings of the bard’s vessel’s vein,

Seduced by its mistress, the heart does reign.

Oh, the heart, she is a sly coquet.

Flirt as she will, there cannot be a lawful marriag...

Cast Aside

Cast Aside

A woman cries for now she knows

Her love is unconditional

Weeping at the empty kitchen table

One, two, three in the morning

None are awake but her

Right hand reaches out to air

She wails

“There was no choice to make!”

Yet she always knew, in some way

Either too much to handle

Or not enough

But always cast aside

 

Anger will not manifest

Her l...

I Know Who I Am

Eyes that seek truth,

A heart that knows no bounds

A mind that eludes and intimidates

A soul that is and always was free

Determined and passionate

Emotional but strong

I can get through anything

Even when I don't want to

 

There are times when I do not know myself

These times are hard

Patience will show my path

I'm so grateful I was not alone

I'm still not al...

How Are You

How are you?
What are you thinking about?
Why are you thinking that?
Where does your heart go?
Does your soul fly?
Can you see clearly?
Did it help?
What didn't help?
How is your soul?
How is your heart?
What do you think about?
How are you?

Home

Keep finding bits and pieces of

Myself strewn across my mind

Only to be blown away again

And what little pieces I have left

Shake and shiver in fear.

Knowing the horizon has better days

I strive onward, searching

There will always be a place

Not a hole, but a safe space

In my heart

For you to rest your head awhile

And know that I will always love you.

Quiet River

Quiet River

 

When the morning's flight

lifts the darkened blind,

and slows the speed of time,

be ready in your heart and mind

 

with gratitude, as you drift

on a sweet and quiet river,

lined by silent watchers;

remember their gifts, and the jewels

                           of the givers,

 

For that light is sure to glow

fierce and steady in your memory -

Earth Treasure

What is that glint

                as the sod breaks and crumbles:

a sparkling hint

                of discovery

                as I dig the dusty summer soil?

This old garden has gained lost treasures

                of man, woman and child for centuries -

                What lies uncovered?

 

Teased from the clod

                I find a tiny glass heart and this ...

You have my heart

When you give someone your heart

They have it and that's just that

There's no feeling of loss or of something missing 

Simply joy as you realised you had it to give

And gave it willingly, without doubt

Knowing it sits safe with the one you love

You have my heart

Love

My heart beats fast for you

My heart aches for you

My heart glows warm whenever I think of you

It fills my brain and soul like a drug

The best drug of all

Adagio of the Heart

I went to an extraordinary exhibition last year called "Spirit of Anzac" which was touring all over Australia. It came closer than anything I've seen in capturing the daily experiences of those who fought, and died, in the First World War, and especially in trench warfare on the Western Front. I have tried to express something of that experience, as I understand it.

That Feeling Pt 2

It didn't happen quickly,

The fall.

Honestly, I didn't realize it was happening at all.

A few encounters here and there turned to seeing him every day

Turned to waking up to sleepy smiles and stolen kisses

And now I wouldn't want it any other way.

As time passes it gets harder and harder to rememeber how I felt before I met him.

It is harder each day to remember who I was then...

Wanderlust

Oh how I crave to feel the touch of the ocean.

My skin longs to feel the mountain breeze. 

This heart of mine seems insatiable when it comes to wandering,

To wondering

What this world holds and where my place in it is. 

I search for new in the old and for excitement in the familiar. 

How wonderful it is that you eventually find what you are looking for.

Supposed To

Who am I suppose to be?

My mother tells me I must be strong, independent,

I must strive to make myself happy.

My dad says I must be smart, work hard,

I must dedicate my life to building a great one.

My heart says I must love others, care for others,

But what if that gets in the way of caring for myself?

My mind says to stay safe, to be cautious,

But this interferes with my ...

Strength?

I never considered myself to be strong, before.

My heart, my mind, my body

Thought of as weak, before.

 

But I am no longer the girl I was before. 

This heart has survived every wound, every attack.

This mind has overcome every anxiety, every doubt. 

My soul, my character tested over and over and

I have failed and thrived only to fail again.

Yet here I stand.

I have p...

Paradox

"I don't want revenge.

I just want to make you smile"

 

Sometimes the truth is, we are left alone.

There is no one to go to.

Just left on your own

inside the world that makes up the collision of your heart and mind.

Each day time passes, and still you could say to me: "Your heart is mine".

 

Folded down in sorrow. Tears that rain into my heart.

Never leaving my eyes, ...

Mom

My mom lives in my heart

Of my world she is a special part

Lots of care and unlimited love

Shes an angel from heaven above

She gives me food and drops me to school

In my life she sets all the rules

Even she scold and yells at me

In her eyes love is what i See

Sometimes i may cause you pain

But i know your darling I will remain

You will always be in my heart
