Crystal Soul

It is not fair when you say

you would love me forever

and then never show up to prove it

words are just pebbles

and love is just the ocean

but actions and gestures

are the steps

to make my heart shake

my soul has already

been spoken for

do not ask to conquer it

for it is futile

worthless, unattainable

it has been claimed before

I was born

before you were born

my soul has travelled

endless waters

to come to me

I am sure others tried to claim it

for it is truly

a crystal soul

you can see all the shimmering light

if you step close to me

you have to almost

walk through me

to appreciate the glitter

and the reflections

but so far

no one has even attempted

to open me up

once-almost happened

twice-I ran home

and now

I wait

for my other light

to complete me.

thank you for reading my poetry.

Shining light

i was blinded by you once, the way you twirled

my thoughts and made me crumble to my knees.

i was kissed once, when you stopped me dead

in my tracks and faced me. i have dreams

that I catch

and others long forgotten on ribbons.

you see me,

but not through me,

you feel me,

but not on me,

you understand me,

but which part?

my heart does its own sinking

and drowning.

revives. dies. quivers.

regenerates. poisons itself.

it’s my artistic way.

everyone knows. it’s not a deep

secret. tug away. pull me harder.

there’s more depth,

who knows how deep the ocean is?

these homes on different parts of our country

have their own drum beats.

each so unique to my love.

i love being this way. on the edge.

stuffing gifts in parking lots

meeting deadlines with a smile and

grace. no one can beat me in

creating priceless beauty with

art and words. i’ve touched so many

lives. and still i’m a fool.

for you.
