In The Bubble

hubbleonewithgod

Our world is so small
We care for no one else
Such a Narrow focus
As all about us fall

I know what my life means
There was never a doubt
A part of something more
I forget who I have been

To be a single drop of rain
Upon a flower or a child
To be a single smile
Soothing another’s pain

I was never more than this
Born to embrace not avoid
If just one understands
Then I gave the perfect kiss

Stoic.

Flying

icarus_by_talonabraxas

If I could fly, I would not
I would walk upon this place
Among man
Teaching how to walk, to run
Only then would I show them
How to leap towards the Sun.

Stoic.

I have travelled with a map
I became lost in this sea
Where charts failed
Floundering

Sailing into unknown waters
Adrift upon the tides

I learned of unknown lands
I found shores never seen
Where tales were born
Resounding

Sailing, the back broken
I now reside

I visited and left
I found no solace
Where legends promised
Fists pounding

Sailing berthed for now.

Stoic

 

 

 

 

Commonality

Commonality

A single flaw
Promises made
Mistakes made
Believed, over and over

For a lifetime
Forfeiting
One for another

There is no grace
When sacrifices made
Fail

Reflections in dark mirrors
Pasts holds no virtue
Steps fall in silent halls

No one knows anyone
Yet we try
Taking, always taking

When alone
We finally see
That we walk alone

Stoic

Till Death Do Us Part

til_death_do_us_part

Ancient promises

A vow meant for one
From who we were
To who we become

Never meant to bind
Two to one
But for one alone to find

The whole is the sum
Of choices made
Forging what we become

Stoic

 

 

 

 

Unstable

60588_1400x1050

They say I am unstable
Flitting through life
From here to there

They want me to explain
My drum and fife
A tune they cannot hear

So I skip and jump
To a beat of my own
A song they often fear

So I write my words
Often in a poem
Yet still they are unclear

Stoic
