Beloved..

I have been
Beloved…I am
To myself the stranger
Stranger on the shoreline
Stranger on the street
Stranger on the horizon
Following
Footsteps
Just out of sight
Can’t reach

Peeping..

Know the heart within me
know the strength of courage
that drives me
Blood that thunders through my soul
Connecting all and feeding
nourishing the whole

Barriers..
Unreachable
Unknown
Discovering still

Doubted..

Doubted for a past
Doubted for my soul
Doubted for a past I don’t remember
A past that I don’t know
Doubted for the darkness that pulls me
Nourishes my soul

Stranger..

Something dark imploring
Thoughts that are
unbidden
Unforgiven
Evermore

On my journey still..

Still as the silent river
Still as the midnight air
Still as the watcher
In his tower
Midnight sleek and silent

Aware..

Too aware to let go
Too aware to be free
Too aware to live as I am
Too aware to be…
Anything but memory
