uncover your heart wound
barely covered by time
like that
I am swept out to the darkest depths of my grief
tears flow relentlessly
where only days ago I thought they were dried up
Losing you is still the most painful experience I have and I can have it over and over again
Breathe
Breathe
I keep taking one breath after another, calming myself to live without you
just as I have for sixteen months
and will for the rest of my life

Do not get caught up and / or forget your objective, your purpose, your reasoning, your vision and the outcome that should arise from such things if one could only keep constantly aware of them and stay on their path moving forward.

Solitude

I like the silence. It has a comforting embrace that warmly envelops me with peace, contentment and security. Like an old friend I can relax with and delight in the sounds of nature by day and the stillness in the night. I need the silence and the stillness to write. I need to be alone or at least alone in my world.

Awaken

It comes to me in dreams when I am awake. For it is only when I am truly awake and conscious that truth, fundamental understanding and enlightened ideas, thoughts, knowledge and wisdom are in me. In these moments I understand that they are always in me, part of me, part of the universe but it is only in these moments that I can see, hear and feel them.
