Searching

searching

i am always searching

high,

low,

left,

right,

across,

and between,

as though my eyes are begging

for something new

to carry them away.

should I drink this whiskey

and feel the world

or should I leave it alone

and feel the bare and wounded nothing?

you tell me, mysterious one

tell me what you have been through.

what makes you cry,

and laugh,

and scream with anger?

why do you do

what you do?

tell me of fallen friends,

and lovers,

and angels.

the things you have held sacred

and dropped.

tell me about your wild

and burning passions.

show me your darkness

and tell me about how even the moon

can’t help but hold it

every night.

what reasons do you have

to want to be better?

to do better?

tell me how your hands won’t let you,

how your feet won’t carry you,

how you’re stuck between

reality

and a dream.

tell me everything, my dear.

in a world where everyone is scared

to tell the truth –

i dare you to

    Wow! Really loved this. Runs a little darker than your usual fare, but in such a provocative and delicious way. I think people will relate to this, as we are all searching for something. Your words dig deeply into the soul seeking a response, and the answers we find within ourselves are sometimes shocking and scary. So well crafted! You are a rock star! β€πŸ˜˜πŸ€—

    Reblogged this on Notes and commented:
    Over last 3 decades, I have had the pleasure of knowing thousands, if not millions of lives in person across three continents (sometime from too up-close distance). Her words describe my soul when I was in my early 20’s. Next month, celebrating 50 years of my existence on this interesting planet Earth and its unique (and at times strange) inhabitants.
