Withhold

Your words reach deep inside me

Yet your coy musings

Warn me:

I’m honest you say

I’m blunt and I’m clear.

You will be hurt.

You will walk away:

But maybe limping

Maybe even crawling.

There will be piece of you

I will withhold.

It will be mine to keep.

It will be mine to reap.

odd leveler

why do i sigh (a little relieved)

when fear comes tumbling out of your mouth

your urgent words collide into each other

in their haste to express what i hardly have the courage to sum up

and therefore reply with silence

(and a deeply quiet marvel)

at how insecurity is such an odd leveler

an overlooked equaler

fix this

i can’t fix this

something has given away at the seams

an eyeless needle

is all i possess

so come and sew me up

stitched through and through with scars

but patched up with your kisses

 i will threaten

to fall to pieces

all you need to do

is pull the right string

i await to be entangled

in the chaotic confines

of our harmonious mess

there is nothing better than that

which makes me say nothing but yes…

Dawning

keep your fingers crossed
your heart open
your vision willing
your dreams real

@@@

keep your smile secret
your heart willing
your vision sure
your dreams strong

@@@

keep your eyes dry
your heart strong
your vision unblurred
your dreams from fleeting

@@@

keep your head up
your heart patched up
your vision realistic
your dreams as dreams
