Beacon of Light

You stand alone, through darkness and in light,
Grounded and able.
I look to you for guidance,
For direction.
Please, show me the way.
Shine bright, so that I may reach you.
The storms try with all their might
To bruise you, to break you
But there you are, standing tall and strong
Never to fall.
You keep to yourself, lonely and unafraid,
Apart, but essential.
Oh pillar of light, teach me not worship or fright from your might,
And I will seek you as the hummingbird seeks flight.

Loving You

I could feel my heart breaking every second that you spend away from me,
Shivers down my spine,
Tingling feelings in my breast.
I can’t say what I mean,
I miss you isn’t enough.
I crave you,
No, that’s not right either.
With each sigh I let a little bit of you out
And yet,
Here you are taking up residence in my temple.
You’re the fuel that keeps my heart burning.
The motivation I feed on.
Without you my soul would shrivel up like a grape left out in the sun,
Endless desires waiting in the folds.
I wish you would part your lips and bite into me for a taste of sweet.
I’ll feel faint for a second,
Having my juices sucked out of me.
And then, we’d be one.
Let me come.
Let me feel your insides entangled with mine.
Don’t you see?
I need you,
For now and always.

What Say You?

Maybe, I'm not how you want me to be.
I admit, I don't care much what the proper conventions are.
Go to uni, get a degree, become something in life.
It doesn't seem to suit me.
My days feel restricted.
Wake up,
Get dressed,
Sit in class,
Listen to students recite the ideas already in my head.
My thoughts have no boundaries,
No limits.
I want to do everything!
How can I work on the things I want when all my time goes sitting in a classroom?
I need the freedom.
There can't be rules, timelines, limitations.
No that just won't do!

One more year! 
One more year and I'll be done for awhile.
I want to see the deserts of Asia minor,
the rain forests of South America,
the mountains of Switzerland!

I want to live in houses with character,
And listen to the tunes the boatman sings at the closing of the night.
I want you to come with me,
Not on my journey,
But yours.

Burning Bright.... Because You and I Together Light up the World

"Love is the only freedom in the world because it so elevates the spirit that the laws of humanity and the  phenomena of nature do not alter it's course." 
The Broken Wings, Kahlil Gibran
