All alone All along

like porcelain shavings

her skin began to crack

like a feather floating on thin air

she's losing strands of silken hair


the mirror spits back 

all the qualities in which we lack

like needles in our eyes

poisoned with vain lies


she savored the quiet moments 

devoid of conversation 

the sound of still breathing

the footsteps that followed him leaving.


the closer I feel

the further you fade

the more I crave

the less you feed

so I chose not to need 

a single thing..


will there ever be a solid bridge built to cross..?

a river below, to toss our fears away...

voices muffled, as she sank deeper

yet no hand reaches.

sunshine streaks through the surface

the only warmth you'll get

engulfed in cold fluids

& a heart weighed down by loves disillusions---

many reminders of what could have been..


all alone

she knew it all along..

Author's Notes/Comments: 


They Said, "Give All You Have, And Follow Him" (the 'sun' of 'god')

Space makes no sound,

and yet, if we give ourselves

to the sky on a clear night

we can see the meaning of

respect in the diversity

of the planets, stars, and

bits of shooting pieces of

light, as they pass

by each other in the night,

dancing through other worlds,

creating, embracing the all,

to find new places...spaces to

dwell and contribute their

bits of the magnificence

to the universe and the

story of life. Their committment

runs deep into time, and affects

us in such a splendidly cohesive

fashion that we are unaware

it is touching and molding

our planet, our lives and

very souls in a ways we

many times turn shy from...

run from in fear, or raise a

sword to conquer. We can

meet the universe as we

choose. We can touch the stars...

or we can welcome the stardust

as part of who we are, and learn 

the respect they long

for our hearts to touch,

grow outwardly into, and

expand as one with

their to


..."if we give ourselves

to the sky...".


We can have everything

we think we need,

and never start

the journey.
