Being Human

one heart
dances rhythmically
in our chest
pumping blood
through a series of canals
veins
pulse with life
fragile
hearts may break
elusive
dreams may shatter
saltwater
may flood our eyes
love
is patient
unconditional
fickle
intoxicating
moments
intertwine
becoming the past
present
future
as we march on
we rise and fall
and rise again
like a Phoenix from the ashes
we are
resilient

Changing Tides

Sunset on Moonlight Beach II

we love like the ocean
in waves
fierce
beautiful
tender
fearless
always reaching for one another
gripping
slipping
rolling tides
constantly searching for the shore

Rise and Fall

all shooting stars fall to earth
most angels fall from grace
all leaves fall with changing seasons
most sinners fall at the end of their days

there’s heaven in your eyes
and pleasure on your face
the devil lives inside
these twisted games you play

memories arise
some things can’t be erased
the past is left in dust
some things can’t be changed

broken wings can’t fly
and broken words falter
mind and soul contradict
our heart’s true desire
