Begin Again

Wake up,

Sip your coffee,

Thoughts on a dry, weary day,

Go to sleep,

Repeat.

 

We could be like puppets,

It’s easiest to live on strings,

Let go and let the maker play with you,

Wooden souls for a wooden life.

 

It’s easy and easy is tempting,

Stay home long enough and it consumes you,

Step out and the world overwhelms you,

Sips of coffee and tales of memories lived.

 

The more you speak the more you create

an image of the person you once were,

and in that heap of images,

you find your lost self.

 

Bring it back,

Flare your nostrils and frown your head,

Today is a day to begin again,

Today is the first day of forever.

 

The strings are off,

The maker moves on to the next,

The wood chips away as you

Run towards the light.

 

Wake up,

Sip your coffee,

Thoughts of a dry, weary day,

Go to sleep,

Repeat

Consumed

When was the last time
You felt strong enough
To allow love to consume you?

When did you let her eyes
Take hold of your being,
Made you look up at the stars,
Making you a believer again?

When did you let her smile,
Those lips that made a symphony,
Make you question everything
You thought was in harmony?

And your senses grow stronger,
And you realise that the longer
You allow love to consume you,
The less the universe can hurt you..

When did you let her mind,
That which creates a kind
Of magic reality, change your perception
Of what you thought a misconception?

When did you let her body,
That which resembled the sea,
Make you tremble from within,
Create a fire only you could see?

And your senses grow stronger,
And you realize that the longer
You allow love to consume you,
The less the universe can hurt you..

When was the last time
You felt strong enough
To allow love to consume you?
