Dead of winter as the winds howl I’m still out there searching for you footprints quickly cover forgetting how far I’ve come my hands, no longer feel my breath, stolen my eyes, blinded by this storm my heart, almost empty my will…unbroken
I wanted to drop in and let you all know that one of my most recent poems has been published on Spillwords. It’s live as of today. I submitted it a little while ago, they liked it, and informed me last week of their intention to share it for their own audience. It made my day and gave me something to smile about given the world’s current state. (A post about that is coming) Now, some of you have already read this poem here on my site, but I thought I would go ahead and share it once more to help take our minds off some of the craziness that’s going on.
As always, I hope you enjoy it. Please don’t forget to comment and tell me what you think. It’s all of you and your continued support that drives my writing and I’m lucky to have such a awesome following.
i look, turn around, and see your face then, it falls away like dust like a living dream not even yours in the first place so, I keep walking along staring at the ground trying harder to recall what’s left of the vision I have of you only time has started to begin to fade the picture even though my heart has a good memory the beats are becoming too far between those flashes no longer able to bring it back to life no matter how much I love you soon, i won’t be able to see you anymore when you’re way out of focus and completely lost from my heart
Like a bottle in a vast ocean…I’m drifting further and further from your beautiful shore, I float my body breaking against violent waves which pull me far far from the horizon alone, I wade, no one around to hear me for the longest days…the darkest of nights, Oh, how I’ve prayed to be rescued pulled ashore only by your hand chipped and weathered most of me empty, nothing left but a note two words I’ve carried with me for so long hoping someday my message would reach you fall from your lips and into your broken heart …I’m sorry
You deserve to rest. Even if only for a moment. Put down the weight you’re carrying. Let go of the need to keep it all together. Take off your warrior mask. For this moment, now … just breathe. – Jason Garner
