I. “A Smile for the Few”
The subtle dim-
Cold reflection in my eyes
Saw no side of the mirror;
I reached down before the envy
And gave back the crowd my once empty voice…
Silence eroded the sky
As the horizon turned from blood red to gray
We, in one heartbeat felt its strength dwindle to weakness
And displace- the already fading sun.
I, in my reflection
Torn between the voice and all reason
Couldn’t decide for myself
Whether to speak or disregard the rumors
As they became known to me…
You let the curse feel wanted
Huddled in the mass of your own shadow
Your own reflection- don’t let this belong in me.
Settle down, act yourself;
An envision of the light that passes through all beings…
The candlelight flickered out
From the cold air displaced from my window
No place here holds beauty, anymore
It’s just empty space I fill with nothing.
II. Moonlighted Heart
We are heading to the end of all unsung
A page in the book blown free from its others
The sadness mirror image canceled out
From no one knowing the true affliction.
And rebirth for my ascending fear to rest for good.
Collapse the light you open inside-
To witness the beauty of our passing
Speak now in a room filled with others.
Our beginnings and our endings
Meet as we cross infinity
Speak no longer; and lose yourself in the final run
No need for words, no need for thoughts
Forgiveness is in will.
Reach deep inside- find the rope and climb
From our tunnel we believe only what we see.
III. “Forgiveness in Will”
Take the light
Travel to the end of the earth to pass it by
And forgive yourself, to heal and to let others die.
Forgiveness of your own and passing fears
Will dissolve like smoke,
Breathe in again like night in summer silhouette
Breathe for your ascending spirit to be lifted
Open your heart and rise-
And heal for your forgiveness.
