To be mended & whole
is not a one time thing
it is a constant process
it is delicate & fragile.
do not let anyone in — who will disrupt the process
starting afresh is not always fun
a lot of people don’t have the strength to begin again — protect your wholeness.
i clap for you behind closed doors
because a person like you
deserves to be praised
even when no one is looking
It’s not just the thought that counts
it’s the words
it’s the actions
it’s the way you make me sway my hips to the sounds of your music.
i don’t know your thoughts
so, show me through your actions
and tell me with your words
complete on the outside
a beating heart
an adventurous spirit
complete on the inside
so why do i feel like the rug is constantly
being pulled from under me…
like no one wants me around
like these complete fingers, toes, heart & spirit
will never be enough to make the world love me for who I truly am
a complete human being.
Breaking my heart is punishable
by a lot of things but not by death
i sentence you to life & for as long as you live,
you’ll continue to search for me
in the eyes & hearts of everyone you meet.
always falling in love but never fully
growing in it — like a tree without roots that never bears fruits
break my heart at your own risk.
maybe if we fall for each other
it won’t be falling for — but falling into
so that we become indistinguishable
polar opposites blending into one.
being each other at once.
but we have to fall first
who will make the first move?
i like where this is going
not in any particular direction
no maps, just puzzles to solve.
you’ve turned me — a girl who plans for everything into a spontaneous creature.
i like where this is going
so let’s keep going.
The air is strangled – strange
the words that come out of your mouth are
jovial like the midnight sky when it dances with the stars
but your eyes are betraying you – Are you hiding yourself from me?
nothing real exists between us if lies live within us.
i feel the need to tell you
that i’ll always be here, loving you
through promises — out of these premises and beyond
but this is the thing you know most about me.
so why do you still feel the need to hide yourself from me?
here it comes, the sound of the darkness closing in.
it’s times to run towards the light.
I have nothing — i am nothing
but with you i am somebody
i have everything
i am everything
you ask me why your heart is my home
i say it’s because it’s the way that you are
you make the most neglected
of souls feel at home.
i am the well that never runs dry
out of me flows infinite potentialities
i am limitless
limited only by the limit
I put on myself – not by anyone else
you don’t have a say in the way i row my boat.
sometimes to the right, sometimes to the left but i always have a direction in mind
i am the true definition of a restless spirit
the color of the rainbow sits on my hair
i am spring
i am summer, autumn, fall & winter
hamarttan, blizzards, rain & tornadoes
i am nature — unpredictable
i am matter — occupying every room I walk into
i am unboxed— i name myself
i am me.
A Thousand Capacities.
