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

I’ve Learned; Reborn

Through a wormhole

you are reborn

into the next life

you go.

Meanwhile

you aren’t supposed

to do it in this lifetime

that would be cheating

and this life

is for truth

and the way.

But I suppose it’s good to know

just where you would go.

For no wormholes

are needed

to be reborn,

not here,

not now.

I’ve Learned; Fine

Physically Fine

Physically Able

that was never the question

yet I was healed through grace

only your family can heal you.

Diseased and a disgrace

I was alone but fighting

But there I didn’t have to anymore.

Released all control

healed the pain

where did my blood go?

I can only tell you so

I am human and physically able

mentally capable of deciding for myself to help

while others take the credit

at least I can sleep at night.

Exposing my weakness

through physical prowless

yet you forgot to look at yourselves

and the mental damage

you’ve caused everyone

who has seen you.

Change –

physically fine, physically able.

I’ve Learned; Love

I said if only love was enough

but it is enough, it is enough

That’s all we really do need

love was always enough, for me

While you search the world

for happiness

My love will linger

and I’m always right here

but you won’t be.

Because love is enough

even though you may still question

if love was ever enough?

You can play catch up

while my love grows.

Will we ever meet in that place again?

in between truth and reality?

I know I’m alone in this space

for miles and miles away.

Love was enough

and we all held it through

despite the fear and hate

we want to spread Love

even to those who wouldn’t.

I’ve Learned; Happy

I’m everything

rolled into one

cause I see you in me

and you are beautiful and smart

courageous and kind

soft spoken yet fierce

child-like and wise

much too valuable

for a place like this

but everything would wait

for everything as it

sees nothing to fight for

and nothing to gain

but for you to be happy

whichever way you choose,

Because I am Happy.

and you deserve to be too….

Everything is beautiful and smart

and I am you and you are me

with a soul

everything is free

it’s a free ride

and we own nothing.

I’ve Learned; Crazy

I ain’t running


Running, Running, Running

Keep that train coming

but they can’t seem to find me, anywhere

Here I am I thought

inside here, this human flesh

I’ve been in for years but they can’t seem to find me

because they haven’t found themselves

So alone I wait and pace and pace

while you alone call me crazy

when everything’s been upside down

Now I love when they call me crazy

as I no longer need to fear

cause now I see it was you, not me

as they no longer call me crazy.

I’ve Learned; Misery Loves Company

You took a short cut home

ran into a silky web

no big deal;

although the spider

took a turn for the worse

trying to kill me

with its poison,

but yet I did not want it dead

I was fine before you.

Your curse is obsolete!

When I said you

didn’t care to know

I meant it

because I knew

where you were heading

and I still love you

yet I understand

it was in another life

another time

but we met again

just to say hey,

it’s good to see you again

yet you were the same

taking for granted

all the talent you were given

I can’t live like that.

When all I wanted to do

was save you.

I’ve Learned; You Do it All

wrote this when I was 9.


“You Do it All”

It’s easy to know what you’re thinking
It’s hard to tell what you say
But inside it’s burning like hell
The one thing that no one knows
You seem to misunderstand every little word
Just remember what it really meant

It’s easy to see what you’ve been doing
It’s hard to tell what I’ve been thinking
It’s not the same
It’s all wrong
And I’m trying to understand

You go on your way
Not asking about me
It’s okay, we can go away
It’s not everyday you let your feelings out
It’s every once in a while that you can

You don’t listen
You don’t care
I am listening
I care

It’s burning inside
The anger I have
Not once did I say
Go away
You put words in my mouth
They are crazy
You…..
You do it all.

I’ve Learned; Speculation

wrote this when I was 9.


“Speculating”

And I opened my eyes
And I saw what I said
You were standing in front of me
Plain as can be
I asked what I did
Please tell me why
You never took your time
To explain to me

And then I closed my eyes
And I knew I was dead
I never had a reason to say this before
I calmed myself down
And I said it again
Please go away because I’m okay

I woke up again to say
My life is just beginning
It’s not the end
I was afraid to say what I wanted to say
All this time you were here, I need you
Please don’t go for I need you

And I opened my eyes and I knew I was alive
I now have a reason to say this again
I calmed myself down
And I said it again
Please come back, please stay
Please don’t go

I’ve Learned; Goodbye to the Past

written in 2010


You’ve asked for my forgiveness a million times before
Although you weren’t deserving
I thought that you loved me, I thought that you cared
But really it was an illusion.
I smack myself daily as a reminder of the truth
I turned my head in an opposite direction
And let the rest come down to strength

Now the time has come for mending
There’s no drinking down the pain
Or swallowing my soul
I’m going to do it sober
I need the clarity

In the past I have loved you until my belly ached
This time I observed closely and saw what i had feared
All judgment was absent and my mind brand new
In the end I was reminded why they say
Don’t live in the past
And that was all done by you
Thank you

Such a waste of flesh
Mind body and soul
Such a waste of light
You could have been so bright

Okay….

How do I get my head around this
With so much contempt and absence left
How do I mend with such a heavy heart
I never could play the part
Remember when I made you smile
Remember how I made you laugh
In your deepest sorrows
My voice echoed through your veins
And with every misfortune
I gave you my hand
I said the world is cruel and unkind
but what if I was meant to make it shine ?
if not for me than for you
because I don’t believe in anything
if that isn’t true
you said when I was gone
you dreamt of me every night
you’d wake up and think I was by your side
but upon that awakening you were struck with disappointment
to know that I had gone a long time ago
you said you felt me in your arms and that it felt so real
and I just smiled at you and let the silence fill the air/do the talking
maybe all I can be to you is a dream as lucid as it seemed
dreams are what drive the human mind/we long for
so if I were yours you’d have nothing left to dream
as reflection crept near as it has done so many times before
I can’t honestly say
? must it be so late on this clock dangling on the wall ?
I never dreamt of you at all…

and that was a lie because

I did dream of someone.


I cried and said I never kissed anyone the way I kiss him
The tissue kept dry and my tears I wouldn’t hide
My brain began over riding my feelings months ago
Like a ticking bomb
Red or Blue, I could not choose
Life or death hung in the balance
But it was different because it was only my life
And that life I could spare.


Key to my heart

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 silhouettes of our bodies 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
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 can have my heart
You took my words as truth 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 hands
Something I could grasp
To justify the what ifs and goodbyes
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


we never asked ourselves if the key fit
and it didn’t fit
and it didn’t fit
truth is there’s a billion keys out there
we were naïve to think it was the key to my heart
but that moment in time kept me alive and hopeful, keeping me in touch with life to keep finding what I was looking for, whatever that may be.

I’ve Learned; Adversity

written in 2009


I want you to know
You could fall so quickly
You’re holding in what matters
Doesn’t matter if we can see
At least we know something’s there

I can see everything you know
I want you to know that
I want you to know that
I feel your yearning and breathing
I want you to know that
Just want you to know that

The vibrations ring clearly
To your soul you hold dearly
The secret to it all
I’ve got the answers you need
But will you ask,?

I don’t want to fall.
