When Curiosity Doesn't Kill You……YOU LEARN. More Than Just a Breathe of Fresh Air

I’ve Learned; Lights

When I looked at the moon

I felt you looking at it too

as if we both

were doing the same thing

at the same time,

thinking about each other,

Missing each other

because we loved each other.

Almost threw it away

until the day

I couldn’t live without you.

I had never been so happy

not in my entire life

and it was taken from me

in an instant

while I was in control of nothing

not a bit of it.

I felt my heart break

I felt the love disappear

to only resurface

when you decided to see clear.

We woke up laughing everyday

and throughout my life

I never had that before

So please don’t label me

with your past

I started brand new

why couldn’t you?

So I’ll just look at the moon

knowing you are too

maybe at the same time

you were never mine

as we both belonged to everyone

until we woke up

and realized

all that didn’t matter

not anymore.

Shining lights

floating through the air

only I could see them

what were they telling me?

I still don’t know

except I never loved anyone

the way I loved you

it’s like I always knew

this day would come.

I am like the lights

that float in the air

I am like the moon

who hangs there

I admire you

and all that you know

can’t you see

how much I loved you?

would do anything for you?

I think it was something

that needed to happen

we were lost in our love

we needed to break free

and share our love

with others.

And maybe those lights

jolted us awake

to only say

there is no other way

to reach true love

If we wanted what we created

we would have to be ripped apart

to heal in ourselves

what was keeping us apart.

To only find each other again

and realize what we have

and our purpose

is to give it away

as easily as we received it

is as easily as we can share it.

Although I worked hard

to find love

It all came so easy.

Like the lights

which dissipated in time

we too will disappear

but our love you can hear….


for infinity

for all of time

only true love remains

after the lights are gone.

Along the thick grass and wild flowers,
Along the trail of our desire,
We lured each other at a steady but distant pace.
You told me to watch out for a dip in the earth,
And I let you protect my balance,
As if I didn’t know how.
We ventured along the sea of open meadows,
As we see the outlines of our bodies,                                                                                                                                    

Much like silhouettes from the night before,
Pressing down the tall grass temporarily.
I was dizzy but focused on the stars.
The moon was perched next to us lighting up our little lives.
I told you I could touch it but it would hide.
You told me that you had me and I didn’t believe you.

But today our view was of a town quiet,
Landscapes of a past, present, and future,
We entered an old house and found treasures of a lost soul,
Abandoned and desolate, scattered and torn,
Not much different from the lives we knew.
You asked me if you had my heart and I said I didn’t know,
I locked up the key and threw it out a long time ago.
I said if you found a key then you could have my heart,


You took my words as truth (as it was so easy to do)

And among the sea of abandonment,
You found a key I had not seen.
A place I thought I gazed with my wandering eyes.
Complacent we stood, a little surprised,
I never imagined the look in our eyes.
And we were certain it meant something real,
A concrete object in the palm of my hand.
Something I could grasp,
To justify the what if’s and goodbye’s.

We walked out over the boards with protruding nails,
Into the meadow we retraced our steps.
Halfway back, we had no reason to doubt,
and gave into a kiss that would validate our capture.
