you know too


i have no expectations, except that

you keep me

especially when i share myself

with you

in ways… that cannot be explained

with words

only space, and all that occurs

in the inhale

which is a lot, a world in and of itself

if you are listening

you know too

where are you going?

oh precious soul,
where are you going?

… speak to me.

with your mysterious vision
your body–its inflections,
its words

you come to depend
that it’s always

fly now into
your life
which drizzles
like the wind, cleansing

as blood flowing

by cricketw, Redbubble

your path knows
i heard you say last night
while you were breathing

i vow now
i promise
to include you too,
little soul inside

i hear you
as honest as blood

it will happen
in the way it needs to
in the most unexpected
moment …

pass into the rite
it’s magic

my flame

have a mind of their own
as they
silently listen
call to you
speak your name
invite you to gaze
into their
burn that
knows your secrets

i am listening now
and i set you on fire
to the beat of your glow
you wish for me
i am here
now blow out your candle
and feel what i say

she only wants him
to hear her
to feel her syllables
like a feather touching his skin
even for a second
so she keeps trying
for that triumph
why?  because she loves him

what else can she do
but wait for his cocoon to open
on its own time
she cannot open it for him
though he secretly wishes she would
to free him of his prison
she knows its in the struggle that he grows
she can relax though
she gets forever afterall
because he walked into her dream with a purpose
to never leave
