Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

Whispers of Freedom…

image

A whisper, released from captivity,
Feather adrift upon the tongue.
Holding silent echoes, captured by the heart,
Unheard, unless one knows to listen.

Where secrets abide, lying in wait,
Screaming to be spoken in confidence.
Concealment causes a slow decay of the soul,
Constantly under light’s eye of suspicion.

A whisper, into the noisy silence,
Can you hear what’s being spoken?
The freedom found through exposure,
Will return quiet to peace again…

Words Unspoken…

Image

Sometimes things better left unsaid,

Aren’t better left unsaid, at all.

Many elephants in the room have been born

Who never see their fall.

Fear moves us not to move.

Denial holds us in place.

Avoidance solidifies comfort,

At least for the moments’ sake.

But what of the next moment,

And the moment following that one?

As with words said, can one’s unspoken

Ever be undone?

We are deceived to think the words died

With the lack of our attention.

For me I’ve found, most often,

They just lead to internal contention…

Coveted Silence…

Image
Is it really you?
Nice to make your acquaintance 
Your true nature before me
Coveted silence…

Once you were
Heavy and overwhelming
Deafening sound
Giving way to torment
No peace to be found
I’d fill the stifling vicinity 
With polluted distractions
Trying to block my “quiet”
With false presentations

Can you hear that?
Nothingness
Void of chaos 
Desirable emptiness
The incessant chatter 
Has stopped for a time
And I’m not haunted by 
That which I’ve left behind

Your thick abrasive tendencies
Have faded some
And your once hidden nature
Is coming undone
My heartbeat is confined 
To my chest
No longer blaring in fear
While I’m at rest
You’re accompanied
by a sense of calm
The threats of the world 
Seem to take pause
Is this what others know?
Will I continue to unravel your power?
I never knew it was possible 
To quiet my mind at will

We have much to discover, you and I 
I hope this relationship continues to grow
I seek to stroll with you by placid waters
In sun and rain, wind and snow
