The Flow

The Flow

How accepting can you be
With the turbulence of the sea?
Do you cling along the shore
Or do you swim in waters deep?

She thrills in her relation
To the clock of our creation
But can you stand the current
Of her wax and wane negation?

For most she will elude
Rhyme or reason to her mood
But for one who can behold
Her rhythm does denude

Her cadence does insist
That we acknowledge she exists
This rhythm pulled in time
Assures that nature will persist

The moon, she smiles down
And delights in ladies bound
For they are gifted by her tides
In their wombs, she is found


I hear the judgment in his voice
But quickly see that I have a choice
To let his words be part of me
Or leave them there to simply be

The thoughts he shares are his alone
And come from somewhere I’ve outgrown
So why be pulled into the deep
When love alone is mine to keep

Talk To Me

Whisper your sweet nothings
Held tender to my ear
Seduce me with your passion
It’s all I want to hear

I’ve always been a sucker
For a slow poetic pace
Let me feast upon your thoughts
Let me lay in their embrace

Words draw a line from head to heart
Left beating in my chest
There’s nothing more romantic
Than love that’s been expressed


God’s Children

This is not our faults
And we can’t believe that it is
It simply is
Whatever we decide this is

I want to see you flourish
I want to see you grow
I want to be here and nourish
The parts that want to flow

Like embers burning calmly
Hiding beneath the breeze
Spirit clings down low
Refusing its own release

Afraid of the fire that may erupt
For its power is unknown
And like all that comes to light
The truth will surely show

At some point along the way
We unconsciously conformed
We lost touch with all the things
That made our spirits soar

Fearful that if we do what we want
Well, it must not be seen
For if the world truly knew
If they truly knew our human being

Well, we’d be moving into power
Arising from the flames
A phoenix now remembers
From where it is he came

The man you are is perfect now
So long as you can see
That you are truly something
Still waiting to be freed

A King among the mighty
Whose light would shine as well
If only your embers would grow
Into a fiery tiger swell

So long as you’re entangled
In a mesh of mind deceit
Believing you are not good enough
And keeping tame the sea

This mighty King, he will wait
He will wallow down below
But deep inside he wants to rise
Making himself known

By freeing himself of the tidal tug
That pulls from deep inside
We are more than we’re being
When our hearts defend our pride

It’s time to take a break
From what everyone else needs
Forget what you think
What is it that you feel?

As for me, well I’m a Queen
But I’m not a Queen alone
Surrounding me are long lost souls
Who must rise and take their thrones

We are not simply the embers
We are not conditioned drones
But we are Gods children
And it’s time to feel at home
