How much you are able to give…
This is the measure of the gift within you.
We are all gatekeepers to each others’ soul.
There is only one (sole) soul.
Love is the eye that sees the Soul,
through the light of a shimmering tear.
So thank you for every tear;
they have helped me to open my
Now ink drips from my eyes onto a page meant to heal
these torn hearts of ours.
We are all scarred….
The healers are the ones who let the scars break open.
the wind blows, sweeping with it memories,
stirring all thats been buried within
the thread slowly pulls loose
and the pile of dead leaves starts to break away
I give in, standing in silence
letting go of the fragile thoughts,
releasing the shadowed dreams
letting the feeling pass
there is yet another sky, another shore,
another reason to keep a beating heart
distant from warm comfort of tears,
away from the agony of an infatuated lover
sometimes we need to be protected from what we want
for a deeper need to be fulfilled
