it. all. matters.


it all matters
my fragile soul broken, speaks
to me
hiding once…

don’t you realize that
we are already healed?

delicate you are, beautiful moment
elapsing yet not
your possibility never forgotten
saved in my heart, as you…

the flower that i pass
knows how to live
as time stops
in its waltz

it tells me–hide with me
in my competence
that needs no prestige
only being,
only tenderness

as if i’ll know

hear me
as if you feel
who i am…

as if you’re about
to melt
but don’t know how

as if you are the only person
who i’m speaking
to now

as if these words
mean something
maybe the world
to you

as if i’ll know
your heart is
beating faster

as if
your wish
just came true

an idea

unveiled…

your eyes are the windows
to a lifetime
of wisdom
within

practicing…
you hear
what’s written on your face
arriving as you are

the flame in the fire
has an idea
what i’m thinking

between spaces of time, misty

between spaces of time, misty
you start to believe
that you always have time
like a river

a precious you
is waiting to notice
in this moment
saved for you

see through
what follows you home
to be your pillow…
a winding path
on a daydream
leads to your smile

it’s already for you
to hear,
so listen to its whisper
you are beautiful

its paradox

ever emerging
all sides
of you

choose the
one in your now
who is
in between
your dark night
your early dawn

rising
because it knows
what to do
…next

is it the
mystery
u n f o l d i n g
its view
its paradox
that chooses
without limits
to protect you?
