 ..in his heart, the sum of all his colors

Light (my poem of happy)

Can I not breathe without you? Can I not dream without you?

I feel weightless- I’m dressed in silk
The suffocating wool has disappeared
I’m wearing yellow with lace and frills
My smile is white; my tongue dances behind each word
I leap from hour to hour
I dance without a stage
There is no audience
no judge
no costume or masks to be seen
I sing aloud
There is no danger of a flat note or a harmed ear
All the risks have been taken
Allowing me room to fly
Can I not breathe without you? Can I not dream without you?
I finally live
I am fully alive
Each finger composing an inexperienced song
A new life
I sing so readily, so decidedly
Is it true?
Is it fair to feel so warm?
Is this sunlight really all my own
May I bask beneath this joy?
Can I run without a guide?
Each bar that held me in place
Each brick that kept me cold
Has left
I seem to be alone
Alone in the glory of this new light
This new place
It is mine
It is all mine
I fear he needs me
I fear he needs my hand for strength
But my feet are swift
My limbs resist
The fatal temptation to re-track
To my prison
To my past
Eyes are bright
Salt tears have formed a castle
Which is a learned satisfaction
I see an orange up in a tree
I want it
So I take it
I taste it
It brings me pure delight
Small satisfaction
Little interactions of what now
does matter
Can I not breathe without you? Can I not dream without you?
I linger in this rain
I feel so overwhelmed with
Each splash
The puddles are forming fast
This moment soon will pass
I must make the most of each drop
Exploding on the slipping street
There are no words for this joy
A fresh tear fills my eye
Who am I
To deserve this second chance at life?
All my fears are not overcome
But my life has just begun
Can I not breathe without you? Can I not dream without you?
No-
So
I walk past you and find
Life after death
A fresh breath
A new scent
An awakened smile
I realize
I never knew how to live
I could never dance like this before
And everything I held so dear
Has slowly faded away
Can I not breathe without you? Can I not dream without you?
I raise my eyes towards the sky
My hands are open wide
My heart begins to pursuit
The depths of all this passion
I can barely regain my stature
I am left startled and changed
Things will never be the same
And as my height transforms
I say
Thank you
You gave me courage to breathe without
You taught me how to dream without
And without
I am offered what I once did doubt
And finally
I am ready to be

vendetta

i wish i didn’t think i was so brilliant. I would write more,  I would edit. i would spend time creating magnificent raw sentence, insteady i fly by half-heartedly, without willingness to purge the piece that must be edit. What a terrible vendetta, like a gluten-free girl who loves bruschetta.

just because she’s breakable…

..does not mean she’s broken  (that fighting little fool, that queenly lass of rebel rules, that darling goddess of wicked words, that loyal lover of Fairy Tale worlds).

Her beauty rests, her mind it rests, her heart surrenders; her body smiles while she slumbers (that gifted girl, that priceless devil, that fearless fiend).

Goodnight, goodnight, she falls down under  (she’s hanging free, at liberty).

Smile :)

If you were green tea, I’d be your tea cup
If you were dark chocolate, I’d be the paper that wraps you up

If you were a train, I’d be your tracks
If you were a brain, I’d be the heart attached

(Smile. Your eyes sparkle when you do.)

Where Am I?
