Here I stand again

On the edge of a new beginning

Past regrets and indiscretions loom large

As they whisper in my ear the things I cannot change



Here I stand again

As I have so many times before

Looking into the jaws of uncertainty with wonder

Not knowing if the road I am about to take will set me free



Here I stand again

Left with a new and overwhelming choice

One not to ever be taken lightly or made foolishly

A decision that could make or break the strongest of free wills



Once again I stand

Looking into the beckoning distance

Each direction giving no hint of what mysteries reside

I am captured in the time and space between the here and now



Once again I stand

With only my solitary heart to guide me

Finding trust in such a fragile yet unstoppable force

Is much easier when matters such as this are emotionally unburdened



Once again I stand

Ready to choose the path that truly calls out to me

Never again choosing the dangerous direction of least resistance

As it is clear the most troublesome journey provides the greatest reward


One last time I stand alone

Prepared to embark on the next leg of my journey

Where it will lead me I haven’t any idea, yet it matters not

The road I choose has a bright light and warmth unimaginable waiting



Here now I walk alone

Nothing like the journeys I have known before

Something so much different giving purpose to my stride

The illumination on this glorious path provided by an identical heart



So I will never again stand alone


Believe (Acrostic)



Before the dawn of time it was determined

Everlasting love awarded to those who wait

Life’s meaning played to the beat of one heart

Interrupted by distance and circumstance

Entwined forever by patience and fortitude

Veritable devotion rising from a phoenix’s nest

Emblazoned with the jewels of pride and poise



Libra/Pisces Love Connection



Look into these eyes

Tell me what you see

Is it easy to see so deeply

Two souls melding



All for one

And one for each other

Two heads, one heart

Signs of air and water

Should never be apart


Over ravages of time

Countless bygone ages

Unquestionably together

Seemingly always

Every kind of weather


The balance provided

With steady determination

To each heart upon the scale

Comes from his love for love

As we discover journeys tale


No mountain too high

Nor burden too heavy

No river too wide

To keep perfection away

Once at each others side


Adversity would be better

Finding a new direction

To turn tail and run

Libra Pisces love invincible

These two hearts beat as one











Six Questions (Pandora’s Box)



Who is to say where our destiny lies?

To decide where this illusion ends

And real life comes into view

Fates are wrapped up tight

Inside Pandora’s ornate box



What strange and cruel reality is this?

Where such perfection is far out of reach

As close as a gentle loving whisper

Yet so far away the distance is unbearable

While time ticks away the miles in between



When will the day arrive that sees the miles disappear?

Forests and deserts vanishing into togetherness

As time succumbs to the power of beauty

And Pandora’s box can finally be unlocked

Letting free this torrent of raw human emotion



Where will we be inside our minds?

When we are allowed into our secret garden

Free at last to run wild and let passions grow

To fevered pitch while the skies open wide

Engulfing rays of light pouring from our souls



Why must it take so long?

To bring meant to be into being

To see what was so obviously hidden

Right in plain view for all but one

While ravages of time laughed mockingly



How are we to find our way to hearts freedom?

The promise of morning balances against the night

Sun and Moon in an obedient place in the sky

While Pandora’s box finally reveals it’s mysteries

Beautiful mayhem pours directly into our solitary heart
