Your Translucent Bones

Stillness

I catch your piece of mind as I skip my next breath.

We listen to the silence as we're caught between two worlds.

Unfolding as opposites in an overwhelming void.

Drifting

You left your feelings behind, fired from your soul like flares in the nights sky, sparkling through your now translucent bones.

I caught them, took them prisoner, and engraved them to memory.

Change

Our worlds no longer collide. You crash landed amongst the stars, while I drift among the mortal.

Comfort

Your spirit transcends the void, accompanying me, a lost traveller searching for direction. My guide beyond the physical, my strength amongst the sorrow, my light amongst the shaddows.

Silence

The fears don't seem as loud anymore. Some crumble to dust turning to ashes of the past. Some turn to vapour, unable to form into thoughts.

Yearning

I reach out to grab tomorrow and let the sands of gone by days trickle through my fingers. I can't hold you by the hand but I hold your memories in my heart.

Peace

Gambler's Anonymous

I spin the wheel, there it goes, my turbulent mood dependant on the speed and force. It lands on the red. I debt again. The anger subsides as the negativity consumes. I gambled my sanity and lost again. Left to chance, I repeat the cycle over a...

I am not what happened to me, or said about me. I am an adopted child of God.
