Drops of Silence

Standard


I wish I could say that I’m hearing every word, but I can promise you that I can feel it.
And if I don’t, I dream it..
Dream it, where all the voices create one sound; the sound of your soul.

To Let You Go

Dream a Little Dream of Us

Standard

For a dreamer, night’s the only time of day.  ~From the movie Newsies

In my dreams, I find answers to questions I haven’t dared to ask yet.

As exclusive praying, thinking and writing could ever be, I always stay a little more vulnerable to exposure than when I’m dreaming. When I dream, it’s all me. I rule the lands inside my head.

In my dreams I’m never old. In my dreams, we’ll stay young forever.
Tonight, I’m not ruining what I have by desiring that which I don’t. Because in my dreams, I’m free to desire and stay safe. I’m free to hold on to a thought of you. I’m free to miss you.. I’m free to be yours.

I trust myself with testing the limits of my dreams, and that’s all the courage I’ll need to succeed.
And tonight I’ll let my dreams illustrate what my soul whispers.

And they’ll name a city after us.. We’ll grow old, but stay young in my head.. at the heart.

Saved

Standard

You drew a smile on my face. A really big one.

While I was just coming to tell you that today too, was full of tears and fights.

Maybe you don’t know it yet, but I turn to you whenever I need to share happiness or grief. And maybe it won’t mean anything, but you are where I find comfort. Even in your silence.

You give me direction.

And all I can say is you saved me.

The Colour Yellow

Standard

In my dreams, one day I’ll walk away. I’ll leave time behind. And I’ll fall in love with the sound of my feet hitting the ground declaring “good-bye”.

Like we never loved at all.

Ever the Same

Standard

Love is fragile. That’s part of why they say it’s hard to hold on to, but still impossible to let go of.
And yet, with all the strength we’ve got, we fight for that fragile emotion, wishing that against all odds, it wouldn’t shatter or fly away.

Everytime you come my way, I push you away. I will keep on pushing you.

We will stand in the wind, and we’ll be free like water.. We’ll flow down, under the warmth of the sun and in the cool air of the night.

I need you to carry all my weight, but I’m no burden.  I’m no burden at all.

And you’ll always want me, and you’ll always stay inside of me.
And we’ll both stay in love, close but distant, cold on fire, stone but stars, shaken but still.. Everything changes, and we remain ever the same.

My Best Man

Standard
They would stare at the sun together.. in the same direction, and yet each would peacefully recognize.. different shades of the same light.

He was born with the gift of laughter. He brought tears and smiles. Men are terrible, change note. Boney shoulders that provide comfort. It’s not the man in my life that he is, it’s the life in my man. That is; my best friend.
