The Voice

One day I had a visitor
I don’t know from where it came
A voice to keep me company
In my loneliness and pain

I thought it nice to have a friend
Who seemed to be with me most of the time
I learned too soon it’s reasons
For taking residence in the corners of my mind

It began to tell me how easy it was
To give up and just let go
Put ideas inside my troubled mind
And the thoughts began to grow

Breaking Free

by LizzieCracked

Wheels that will soon take,
Anywhere I want to go
Wind in my hair
Breaking free of the prison I consciously make
Done waiting for someone who won’t be coming back for me..
Tired of Going straight on for someone who doesn’t want me.
I’m gonna be free
I want to climb rocks and sleep under the stars
and go away
from the bondage of my broken heart…
Do it alone since there is no one to take part
And ill be free as I can be while always locked in the hell that unfairly chains me.

Moments

stardust

With nothing but the barest threads
You wove us a blanket of stars..
And with barely a frame and bed
You built a ship to sail us afar..
It might have been but a moment passed
Without notice of its going..
But you fashioned a seed of hope
and are tending to its growing
Instead of lonely despair
There is light to share
What once I thought damaged and dimmed

Meaningless Words; Nonet

by LizzieCracked

There, see the words in the air, weightless
empty and shallow? Grab them, chew,
spit them out, to tough even
to swallow. I tire

Butterfly

by LizzieCracked

butterfly, monarch

Dare to follow the butterfly
See where its path will lead
Don’t lose sight of its zigzag flight
It will show you what you need.
Dare to soar and flit, alight

My soul whispers

by LizzieCracked

When my soul whispers
it is speaking from my heart
of longing and yearning
of love, and art.

My heart gets heavy
it knows not the words
for love, kindness, need, want
the hearts expressions often misunderstood

free spirit

by LizzieCracked

I am color and art

beauty and light

I am grey and hurt

pain and dark

a moment here

alight back there

touch as soft

as butterfly wings

translucent in my memory

Home for the Holidays

by LizzieCracked

♥                                     ♥                                     ♥

Home is where the heart is  –

Home is where you hang your hat

Home is where no matter who you are and what you have done, you are always welcome back

Home is where the cooking always tastes the best
Home is where we regain strength when weary and needing a  rest

Home is what we long for when we feel all alone
Home is a reminder who we are and where we once came from

Poem: Love is.

by Harry

sleepy-logo

Love is

Everything and nothing
Poetry and prose

The music of the heart
The diction of the soul 

A soft place to rest
A hard place to reach

Light that guides our actions 
Darkness with no relief
