Stars and Snowflakes

Goodbye

A little bitter
Mostly sweet
This day
Of my retreat
From a blessed lesson
To the start of my life.

Despite poor prose,
I managed to tell
Those who needed to hear
What I needed to say,
And despite clear skies,
Cloudy eyes
Brought unplanned rain
To my farewell.

Demonless

The past has demons in it
That aren’t demons at all,
Just missed words
And misunderstandings
That caused me to call
Those bridges burned
And friendships fractured
Beyond the point
Of no return.

Melting

We can let life
Act upon us,
Melt us away,
Like Summer melts ice pops
Onto pavement,
Or the Sun melts Winter into Spring.
Fear melts into excitement,
Into thrill, rush,
And back to fear.
Studio lights
Melt dreamers
Into extras.
Time melts memory,
Conviction,
And certainty
Until what we stood for
Mixes with who we used to be
Down the drain.

Beginning

Once I escape,
I’m not going back.
How could you
Expect me to?
I won’t cuff my own wrists
Once I’m finally free.
Why would I
Do that to me?
Your doubt
Won’t change a thing
Now that
My life’s beginning.

Soon

Stir crazy
Aching to run away
No way
You could convince me to stay;
Too much life to live
And world to see.
Here,
In this glass prison,
The smallest things
Provoke me,
But soon
So soon
I will break myself free.

Disconnect

There’s a disconnect
Between my soul
And my body,
Between my body
And the rest of me,
That threatens to
Unravel me
If I
Can’t tie
These pieces back together

New Chapter

Neverending might be
A fantasy,
Forever’s overrated,
And the greatest lie created
Was “happily ever after.”
I’m starting a new chapter,
And despite all the faith
And hope that I hold,
I’ve read enough to know
That things implode
As the story unfolds.

Faded

Dust settles.
Wind dies.
Memories fade.
Time flies.
New structures rise
When others fall.
Peace replaces the pain
We no longer recall.

Confidence

Head up.
Shoulders back.
Be patient.
Cut yourself some slack.
Fake it
Until it’s real.
Don’t let them dictate
How you feel.
Own your power.
Know your worth.
With dedication
You’ll unearth
A hidden skill
You’ve never seen.
With it, fulfill
Your every dream.
