Nature Feels 

Mesmerized by these purple splattered skies 

Remembering all the special highs and goodbyes 

Overlooking us are the clouds scattered in the sky 

Watching their reflections float by in your eyes 

In that moment

All I wanted was to be 

How I wanted you to feel

Like the harmony when the sky meets 

The sea 

I feel the essence of your universe 

I see you when I close my eyes 

Something so beautiful 

How could anyone ever possibly despise 

To wallow in your enigmatic magnificence 

To appreciate the amalgamation of the colours of your soul 

Digging deeper into the depths of your colourful unknown

Your flaws are what make you imperfectly quintessential 

Every flaw adds to your existential potential 

To love all of you is my true intention  

Like the wind blowing the trees in one direction 

Captivating my being with such ease 

Like the leaves do stems on the trees in the breeze 

Flowers blooming in the loam of your mind 

Sowing seeds of beauty which you then planted in mine 

Beautifully Intriguing 

Crowded mind

Hazy thoughts 

Dilated eyes 

Smoky skies  

Memories made 

People fade 

Battles of the heart lost 

Wars with the mind won

A new page turned 

Another chapter begun 

Friendships survived

Through good and bad times 

All a part of the journey called life

So short but yet so long 

Where God guides 

I try my best to abide

The path always appears 

So many times I’ve been spared 

Down on my knees 

I begged Him please

He picked me up 

Told me to stand on my own two feet 

Though I may trip

I will never fall 

Constantly on the rise 

Even when my back is against the wall 

Breakthroughs orchestrated by the universe

Always arrive 

Right in the nick of time 

He reminds me He’s always looking out 

Always holding me down 

The light shines through from within 

Even though sometimes it might dim 

In the darkness 

I’ll always find me 

My light will always guide me to where I need to be 

There is a reason for everything 

The reason being we don’t always see it

Life’s intricate unpredictability 

Makes the unfolding beautifully intriguing 

Fiending Feelings 

Endure so much in silence 

The idea of sharing what I feel lost all its vibrance 

Don’t wanna fuck the vibe up

Anxiety gone right up 

On rapid, my mind is stuck 

Been wondering if it’s just a bout of bad luck 

Not so sure if I’m really happy anymore 

Or if I even care at all 

The moments clock by 

And I’m not sure how or why 

Days go by, then weeks 

Now it’s 2017 

Slowly trying to reconnect 

Just one more attempt 

I couldn’t possibly relay this feeling 

I can barely allow myself to feel it 

Suppressed so much for so long 

I no longer know which ones are right or wrong 

All I can do is never retreat 

After all

How can I retreat from me 

With the dawn 

Another chance has spawned 

The rising of the moon 

Letting me know a new beginning is coming soon 

Regardless of the pain I feel

I’ll never stop giving and receiving 

My love will out live me 

Long after I’ve completed this journey 

One thing I’ve found 

Is that my heart knows no bounds 

It’s resilience has made my spirit strong 

Even though the road can be so long 

As long as my soul can withhold 

All the things that are about to unfold 

Letting Go 

You’ve been so strong for so long 

It seems easier to just not feel 

But you know that’s a big lie 

Because somehow, someway 

The pain starts to build 

Wherever you tried to bury it 

And like an unsettled soul 

It resurfaces from the grave 

But not in its previous form

No, it’s more haunting 

My soul crippled by the festering pains 

I’ve  managed to keep hidden so low below 

Sealed with my signature smile

But sooner or later 

That smile begins to fade into the abyss

As I fall deeper and deeper into my darkness 

I’ve been here many times before 

But each time feels like the first time 

Each pain feels unidentifiable 

Each tear represents every act of neglect 

I did myself 

I rediscover 

I have to hold on to let it go 

Cryptic Vividity 

Leave it all in the air 

It’ll be gone when the smoke clears 

Standing, feet firmly planted into the ground 

His spirit surrounds 

That’s the way I’m gonna die 

Rather than kneeling with my neck to the sky 

Stand for something 

Or end up falling for anything 

Speak from your heart 

But first let it filter through your mind 

Words are said in but a second 

But once they come out it lingers for a lifetime 

Be aware of the impact you have on people

Take time to notice how you treat yourself 

Aim to be a light in other’s lives

Don’t make it harder for them to live with themselves 

My energy creates its own synergy

I react to the greatness that is in me 

Lived many lives in many places

Now in this time I exist in this space 

Fractured thoughts 

Used as lessons 

I speak of things 

Not of this time procession 

Meditation could help refreshen 

The lives I’ve lived before this time progression 

Come back to me in the form of dreams and deja vu 

So incredibly vivid I just know It’s true 

I’m not easily shaken in my convictions 

And when they’re shattered 

I’m still left with the splinters 

I’m still discovering more about me

But I already know my heart 

And I know my destiny 

It’s to be as great as I say I will be 

Dilemmas of my Darkness 

Constantly at battle with my mind 

It’s a constant war inside 

Worrying about the darkness taking precedence over the light 

It’s kind of ironic 

Because I find so much comfort in the night 

It’s probably because I blend in so perfectly 

Or possibly because the darkness in me is me 

The moon shine provides just enough ease 

Just long enough for me to feel the night’s breeze 

Is it the fear of embracing parts of my soul 

Things I’d rather not show

The parts that aren’t ideally things I’d like to feel

The things I don’t see myself seeing 

My universe finds it so hard to find the balance between my sun and moon 

I become conflicted by some of the thoughts and feelings my mind blooms 

What if they don’t turn out to be pretty flowers

What if all they are are black roses filled with thorns 

Would they still be considered beautiful 

Or would they be seen as something harmful 

So many unanswered questions that float around 

As I watch them float above my smoky crown 

So many things left unsettled in the air 

I managed to let go of some of the things my heart couldn’t bare 

The blood that flows through my prideful veins 

Fills my heart with all these unnecessary strains 

The most beautiful breakthroughs come after the ugliest breakdowns

Right before it feels like in my feelings I’m about to drown

Each one comes when I’m just about to give in 

Give in to the battles I fight within 

Somehow the light always comes shining through 

Just when I thought the darkness was all I knew 

Daily Word Prompt: Dare to be Daring 

Wear what the fuck you want to wear

Don’t let anyone tell you how to wear your beautifully curled hair 

All that is you 

Is who are are 

You can’t possibly be for everyone 

Once you stay true to yourself 

Half the battle you’ve already won 

Dare to be daring 

Push yourself to the brink 

Challenge the constraints of your comfort zone

On your talents spend time to hone 

Keep daring yourself to not care what they might say

Keep doing what you’re meant to do 

Even it means getting those clueless stares 

Those who matter will appreciate you

Just be patient 

Great things take time 

The manifestations of the mind 

Along with the help of the divine 

Your dreams will slowly unwind 

Sometimes you have to be willing to colour outside the line 

Don’t worry you’ll be just fine.

Breakthrough

Daily Word Prompt: Passionate Encounters of the Heart

The type of person that I am 

Requires a depth most won’t comprehend or possess 

An uncontrollable fire 

One that can be caressed and consoled 

By the arms of my fiery soul 

One that grows when love is shown 

For the things you hold close to you heart 

And for the things you cannot hold

Your passion is a part 

Of why I could love you 

Of why I probably do

Our hearts still bruised and cold 

From the stories we’ve previously told 

Ones that have dimmed our shine 

Over time 

From the times we put our hearts on the line 

We’ve now ascended to this place 

Though we’ve much left to go 

Much left to grow 

Undiscovered passions within ourselves

Between us 

Something so incredibly far from lust 

The beginning of something so raw and pure 

Can only lead to so much more 

Don’t let anything diminish that passion 

Or fire 

Our fire 

Stay true to you 

To the things you love 

To me

Just burn, baby

Burn. 
Passionate
