Sleepless

I took myself dancing last night.
My heart was so happy, and my feet light.
I took flight.
For hours on the dance floor my body took flight.

I looked around the dimly-lit room,
People so close together, and yet so far away.
Drawn by the sway,
Or the courage of the moon on the bay.

I moved to the center of the room,
Nodding my head to the pulsing of Flume.
I was new,
I was through with being a shrew.
I danced, laughed, and took a brew.

A Dedication For Her

Hello world!
I was reading a certain woman’s blog today. Hearing some of her story, and what they’ve had to overcome has been beautiful, amazing, and inspiring. Being able to share your story, no matter the difficulty, always inspires me to write, and to never give up. This is for you E.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
You see I’ve been broken,
I’ve been held back,
Uninspired,
Lost,
And any other adjective the powers that be would have it.

I love life,
Yet I’m criticized for it.
I love food,
But I’m told to not consume in abundance.

I shall travel one day.
I shall have my vengeance on those that naysay.
I should try,
To defy,
All those that say I can’t do.

Who dare to correct me?
I’m like a bird you see.
A lot to see and not enough time for a reprieve.

I shall eat a peach,
I shall preach,
On what you can do for me.
You should be my congregation and agree.
Not aggrieve,
Disagree.
It matters not what you choose to be.
You shall see world.
You shall see.

I.L.U.

It makes me feel alive.
It makes me feels things I haven’t felt in such a long time.
I’m a slave to the ink.
I’m adulterous to the blank paper.
I commit all of the seven deadly sins to see the smile,
The look of appreciation on your face.
To see the review you leave in memory,
In my place.
I see space.
Here is my offering.
I hope you take it.
No, don’t hesitate,
take,
Pillage,
Consume.
I do.
I can’t seem to stop.
My God, have I reached the top?
Have I lost my mind?
Where is the time?
Where’s Alice?
She’s normally here to save me from this malice.
Me,
I need it.
I inhale it.
I lay by my bed waiting for more.
More…
Inspiration,
More….
Perspiration,
More….
Motivation,
No condensation.
Breathe
In,
Out.
Eyes closed.
Open,
You’re still here.
My dream.
You haven’t let me down,
You’re always there.
You’re still here.
Keeping me warm and clear.
I’ve never traveled down this road before.
It’s been full of strife and tears.
Will you two disappear?
come to naught?
You get my drift.
I need this lift,
this gift.
