Around Me

Open heart, I fall to pieces.

Send the parts to far off places.

Hide away and pray for healing.

Close your eyes to slow your breath down.


Bluish paint flakes off the highway.

Morning light to lead me blindly.

Falling rocks and sharper corners.

Melted lines of current heat wave.


Into you I run for cover.

Undermine your mixed emotion.

Open up to greet your fortress.

Storm your heart with pen and paper.


Smoothish stones I toss in water.

Muddled bank of sticks and grasses.

Float it now, your new idea.

Give me time for hesitation.


Bright in love, I’m seeing clearer.

Twin is just my blurry mirror.

Often times I’m left to wonder.

Stuck in time, oh, anxious misery.


Moment’s gone, I’m grasping wispy.

Clouds of thoughts, those icky feelings.

Measured up, I’ve given over.

Isolation, on my shoulder.
