how long must I wait

your breath against the wind
battling to take me in
with every minute
my heart beats
thoughts of me
belonging to you
how long must I wait
with every ache
to feel your body
against mine
will the wind blow
you away
to a place
far away
how long must I wait

separation

a path
I followed
lead me
from
your embrace
to scenes unknown.
whispers echo 
within the walls 
of separation.
intensifying
feelings of lost.
spaces form.
creating gaps.
a journey begins.
memories.

my mom

she kept me
close to her heart
instilling her stare
deep within my eyes
penetrating her warmth
her care
leading me to
unfamiliar spaces
I stand alone
as she
holds me
my mom.

ME

Dear Mom
I died the day
you asked me
to stop being gay...
I tried to hide... 
Just to please you... 
you said,
I wouldn't go to HEAVEN... 
your words tore
into my flesh
and into my heart.....
you destroyed my soul...
you were embarrassed
every time I was exposed...
I have decided to stand proud...
So, I will move away....
I pray and I hope
that one day you will 
accept the child you gave birth to
ME....

me

the way
you
look at me
makes 
my heart
beat
uncontrollably

the beginning

stepping over yesterday
on my way to
today
crashing into walls
as I make my way
unfamiliar spaces
ahead of me
a road to travel
yet I can't see
a left or a right
I must choose
no one seems happy 
or amuse
no time to conclude
my brief interlude
my world spins 
as my story begins

changes

in another
time..
in another
space...
i await
the step
you take....
changes
need to be made...
there's places to  go...
a new you...
a new me...
we must
get to know....

the hold

silence.
words
warp
in my
soul.
the hold.
ups.
downs.
episodes.
flashes
of long ago.
no control.
shutting out
destiny
as it 
unfolds.

your love

your power
holds me...
tearing 
down 
walls
setting me 
free...
pebbles 
fall
to my feet...
your love 
heals 
and 
strengthen
the weak...
shining
above mountains
and 
deep in the sea....
the life
you have 
given me
sets me
free...
Your love
forever
holds,
strengthen
and 
reflects
through
me....
thank you 
for 
watching 
over 
me....

silly things

I
laugh
at the 
silly things.
the shadow
that 
follows me...
silly thing...
hides 
from the
moonlight...
dances...
silly thing...
in the sunlight..
silly thing
