Bonds

I fear loosening these bonds
Held in check
Generations taught

Displaced out of context
Out of home culture
They are questionable

The links are rusting
And I am strong
Creaking they strain

Knowing is a whirlwind
Unleashed in full fury
Unbound and free

Birthing the rainbow

A Word On Words

I speak, and a past floods
From your ears to a memory
Your past accessed
Yours not mine

You nod in understanding
A thought of your own, in time
A unique perspective
That was never mine

I talk and you listen
But mouth to ears are veiled
Until time and memories stop
When we are the same

When words are not needed

Beauty And Pain

Joy and sadness together as one
So much beauty and pain in this life
Compassion given and received
Angers fiery touch at times
Blinding flames of passion too
Yet none were the love I sought

Until together I touched each one
In heartbreak and in gentle smiles
In burning rage and in tenderness
A gentle dawning arose
Love was none of these alone
Her heart holding all
In a gentle embrace
