  • OPEN TO 
I am … 
Open to the belief that there is more out there than what I have allowed myself 
Open to the possibility that happiness is not just for some but for all and that I am part of that all 
Open to the belief that love might have enough power to make me trust again 
Open to the idea that if I believe in my own goodness, more good will follow 
Open to the thought that someone may be able to love me the way I need 
Open to the belief that my tribe is seeking me and won't rest until I am found 
Open to the belief that I don't need to be perfect to be loved 
Open to the belief that I am never alone especially when am lonely 
Open to the belief that I too have something special to contribute; that my voice is just as important 
Open to the belief that my talent is my gift back to the world and everyone has one to use for the greater good 
Open to the possibility that I too might have a happy ending 
Open to the belief that their are plenty of people who also feel like misfits and some of them might want to be my friend 
Open to the notion that it is time to let go of past mistakes in favor of future ones 
Open to the belief that every mistake brings me closer to my goal and teaches humility in the process 
Open to the belief that wherever I end up, it will have been my journey and it will have been a worthwhile distance to travel 
I am open… 
Are you?

  • GOOD MORNING

Love sleeps quietly
On a blown-up air mattress
In a white room
With wooden floors
Under a cream duvet
And I lay there
Not wanting to move
Not want to stir the safety of this space
Still
I lay there
Watching Love breathe
Gently
Counting the freckles on Love’s left check
Daydreaming of our life together
Love sighs lightly shifting
As do I
I start to cry
Why me?
I ask
The all-knowing ceiling
Who has kept quiet
The secret sins
It witnessed last night
Why me?
Careful not to stir Love
Who is dreaming so peacefully, I hate
To wreck it
But I must
I’m about to blow it all up
Why Love? Why?
I don’t deserve you!
You should run!
Run far away!
I am not what you need…what you want!
You can find better…
And you should!
You and your lovely dreamy freckles should run!
Far away!
I want to tell you I hate you Love
But the all-seeing ceiling
Knows I’m lying
With all my cracks laid bare
Here on the floor
I am naked
And I want to hide
To be alone
I want you to leave Love
LEAVE!
I AM NOT GOOD ENOUGH!
Then Love’s freckles smile
And those amorous hands
Grasp me right at my heart
Pulling me close
And into this reverie
As the pillow dries these tears
Love, still fast asleep,
Kisses me as if it weren’t an accident
As if Love could feel my fear
From across an air mattress
Comforting me even though
The ceiling knows my almost sin
And just as I was about to destroy Love
Love beats me to the punch
And whispers, Good Morning…
I love you.

  • HEARTBEAT, RUSH, THRILL 
I lie there
Under the late summer moon
Pressed up against 
Your chest
Listening to the beast within the cage
Both unnerved and calm
There is a rhythm
First the beat then the rush
The beat then the rush
Each time a vibration
Each time I thrill
As the wet grass dampens
Your shirt
I feel it
As it raises my hand
The thrill
Pumping
Pushing
Like a wild river
Tearing through a rocky ravine
Twisting and racing
First the beat then the rush
The beat then the rush
Each time a vibration
Each time I thrill
As I lift my head
Ever so slightly
You pull me from your cage
Away from the raging river
Away from the untamed beast
Raising my face with your hands
The grass denting my arm
The air heavy with jasmine
Closer, closer
You beat, I thrill
You beat, I thrill
The sound of your heartbeat gets louder in my head
Until suddenly
I taste summer on your lips
The cool air
The raging river
The beast in the cage
The soft gentleness of grass
And all noise is silent
Save the air falling from our mouths
As we breathe in each other's longing
And the beat then the thrill
The beat then the thrill
Under the late summer moon
Pulling back 
To look in my eyes
Again unnerving me
As you kiss me, repeating
Sending tremors through
Rattling my cage
An all that hides within
This vibratory sensation
With every beat
What a rush
And oh how I thrill
