Return

A Life in a Boat by onixa via DeviantArt.com

Not a boat, but a ship

Regal in your extravagance

Yet promising humble

Adventures

With each vowed sunrise

Glide through my waters

Where nothing

But pleasure

Hides beneath

Tame the storm that threatens

In the distance

And find a home

Within our eternal

Voyage

Render me soft as bathwater

As smooth as glass

When you plunge your way

To my depths

Take me

Dominate my seas

Float in bliss

Off my shores

Grant me only one thing

In exchange for my

Surrender

Return

To take me

Over

And

Over

As long as the sky remains

Above us

And your heart

Bound

To mine

Hold On

I’ll never let you go by pippimuckel via DeviantArt.com

the world will never
stop spinning
but the drug of your touch
the courage of your will
might anchor me
enough
keep my soul
from being pulled into
those dark clouds
let my toes find the sand
my fingers tangle the sheets
burn my breath away
with the fire of your kiss
you cannot create
happiness
but want me
love me
need me
enough
and you may calm the
storms that carry me
away
help me find order
within our perpetual chaos
show me
that normalcy
can be vibrant
hold me tight without clinging
know that I am
here
because of your playful
touches and your
brilliant mind
your gaze that elicits
effervescent joy
from somewhere inside
that I cannot name
your delicious kisses
and strong, warm arms
your level patience
and deep, willful
want
for only that which would
hold us all up
safe above the
cost to your own desires
I am yours
because you let me be
and tonight
hold onto me
I will show you
gratitude beyond dreams
for this reality
is better
than any
fantasy

Wake up

Hope by oo-rein-oo via DeviantArt.com

Be who you want

To be

Today

Don’t bring the

Doubt carried

Aimlessly

By yesterday

Know that was

Who you were

And today

Is who you are

But, oh, sweet child

You get to be

Whoever

You want

To be

You are infinite

Possibility

Only limited by

What your

Ageless soul

Can

Imagine

So go now

Begin today

Let the power of that

Beginning

Flow through

Every thought

And aim for brilliance

Because

There is nothing

You cannot accomplish

You are

Your own hearts

Desire

don’t look

see me
even when I’m trying
not to be seen
silence is your shield
but life is my armor
how I wish to be
free
from this weight
from this crutch
it limits every step
pins me to this page
I don’t want you
to look
I don’t want to be
seen
but, oh, how I long for it
see me through the smoke
I’ve created
see me
even when I
can’t stand
to be seen
I’ve slipped behind
the silence
28 days
unnoticed
I’ve held too much
under my tongue
I don’t want
to be
the joke
but see me now
or leave me
to live
just as I am
unceremoniously
indifferent
hated
by no one
but
me

Wake Me

wake me up by sivel12001 via DeviantArt.com

this solid ache
shredded to strips
binds me blindly
to a place
that doesn’t truly exist
intangible
but more real
than anything in
reality

a place inside
my mind and body
where pleasure
meets peace
and all I can
feel
is you

the noise of life
mere memory
drifting away on the
waves
you create
within

let everything beyond
this bubble
evaporate
I am your captive
until reality ends
and the dream
begins
again

walking around
asleep
dreaming
of the moment
you will coax me
gently, brutally, lovingly
back
to life

Saran Wrap

thin veil by desdainart via DeviantArt.com

time stretches over me
layer by layer
minute by hour
holding me down
shrinking tighter
until I cannot move
or even breathe
to force me to
marinate in
my own dark
sour thoughts
rotting alone
in this perpetual
incarceration
that vibrant girl
who once glowed
like a sunset
now dulled by
the wrinkled
plasticy film of
life
and obligation
how I wish
for the light to
return
for the embers
that might still
burn
somewhere beneath
the grips
of this
stagnation
to be found
fed by some
oxygenic breath
to grow into
that vivid
dancing
flame
which once lived
inside me
lost to a life
I’d longed
and bartered for
a good life
enviable and full
but
limiting
in it’s excess
if only I could
breach the
encasement
dry my mind
in the sun
soak up the
hours
and joys
breathe it in
like those around me
freed from the
Saran Wrap
by the sharp blade
of will
and determination
or the pleasant
absolution
of ignorance
if only I could be
freed
from me
just long enough
to breathe a
sigh of
relief

be life

Alive by paulisa via DeviantArt.com

born blank
crafted and titled
for a purpose
unknown
we slam down the
accelerator
of those early
sparks of life
without knowing the
path
celebrated by all
for the wanderlust
that then mocks us
later
years shortened to
days
the brain can’t keep up
even in the
interlude
of middle life
where the self is known
and all is settled
there is a drive
to burst out
break through the
ceiling
fly higher
bigger, better, badder
limitless as thought
and sky
but the chains
bring us back
reason, logic, sanity
locking us into our
lives
why do we let it
hold us
down, back, closed?
the world is
an open book
our minds were designed
to expand
our bodies built
for adventure
our souls lit
with the fire
of creation

so go
make more
feel everything
see it all

be life

don’t just live it
