One Shot

wrapped around inside myself. eternally bound to you. tied into a knot that cannot be undone. permanently placed on my soul. i cannot remove your blood from my hands. i see you in every question. i wonder what if i had...... only to know i would not have..... i lost you and found myself.

earnestly
you
attempted
to
unfeel
the pains

that ran
too deep
to ignore

medicating
your
emotions
that were
too intense
to release

crying out
in the night

gripping
desperately
to the day

shaking

pushing
consciousness
away

looking for
a new
reality

while

re-living
the past

striving
for a
future
that brought
forth

hope
happiness
and....

stumbling
down
to the
bottom
again

life
ending
before
knowing
the bliss....
before
finding
the release....

always wanting
to be more
than
you
were

something
better
than
you
were

than the you
that your
mind created

laughing
through
the
tears

dancing
through
the
anger

trying
to
recreate

a life
already
lived
and
yet
unknown
and
unfound

hidden

never
to
be seen
by your
bright
beautiful
eyes

because....

You
Closed
Your
Own
Eyes
And
Forgot
To
Say
Good-Bye

"Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don't seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don't belong."

bittersweet

i let
you go

gone as
you have
been

not mine
to
release

yet intimately
connected
to my
core

feeling
constructive
doubt

repeating
little lies
fantasies
deceptions

my inner
voice
willingly

Questions
And
Accepts

Everything
And
Nothing

yet,
all remains

CHANGING EVERYTHING

EVERYTHING CHANGING

stop filling
my mind
with
delusive thought

create
nothingness
in
enlightenment

Kalu Rinpoche

“We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality. We are that reality. When you understand this, you see that you are nothing, and being nothing, you are everything. That is all.”

Emerson

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

Comfortable

seeking
adventure
before the
dawn

new day
new light
new hope

enjoy
what is
seen
but do
Not
own it

give it back
let it go

pass it on

discovering....
new land
new air
new water

new
sight,
sound,
touch,
taste,
smell.

new
words
change
old
meanings.

i
lie

i lie
awake

i lie
with
purpose

i lie
with you
to you
next to you
for you

new
impulses
creating
reactions
in
my limbs
in
my mind
in
my core

my being quivers
and quakes
my being longs
and yearns.....

for a sense of
connectedness

i want to be one
with you
with nature

take me
home
to
hunt
and
fish
and
earn....
my own
survival.

what can i survive?
what can i conquer?
what can these
two
small
hands
do?
