trapped in our own space
listlessly tossed about in uncharted territory
letting depression and anxiety set in deeper

watching what happiness we had drained
if only something forced us to interact willy-nilly
what with our sanity at stake

but would we listen?

Crashing Into Peace

turquoise shorelines beckon me
the subtle dissonance of the waves resonates in my ears
all the pent up tension leaves my body
as each easy footprint lands in the sand and water
the shh of wooshing waves
makes me one with nature
my senses come alive with her female charms
with her sensual colors and soft winds
seducing me to stay
the themes of relaxation surround me
the release i experience
speaks for itself 

Of My Own Making

life is random
my thoughts specific

i’d like to live
where I would thrive

a place
filled with comfort

meeting my needs
supplying what’s required

my paradise

enough of what is needed

Inspired by Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Happiness & Reena’s Exploration Challenge #186 – We don’t need you to make us feel safe, because you made us feel brave.

always cursing the heavens
while life constantly threw itself at us
but yet
despite the struggles all around
the misfortunes endured
we found our way back to happiness
somehow grateful for the experience
and the lessons taught
the grief of loss
showed us we could endure
the reverent conversations with mother nature
went something like this…

we don’t need you to make us feel safe, because you made us feel brave
we had to be

Choosing Wants


I Write Her


I’d like to rub elbows with as many determined experiences as my life can possibly contain.

There will likely be uninvited events, surely wounding me.

But sandwiched in between, moments of soothing and reflective downtime.
And growth.

Bring it on, life.

I’ve never been more prepared.

these times weigh heavily
cries for safety all around
our minds, our bodies and our souls left craving

take me where

a feeling of weightlessness
ease confronting life

being buoyant almost
lifted up without effort

shining even under cover
penetrating the brain
awakening a path forward

…i can get my fill
