Subject: unknown and invisible
silent, dark and lost
noone knows, hidden
retreating and alone
tears block out the light
falling, so cold
i am invisible, please
hear me.

Come, come, whoever you are.
Wanderer, worshipper, lover of living, it doesn't matter
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come even if you have broken your vow a thousand times,
Come, yet again, come, come.

i am a protector of an art form, tired of the fight
longing for a connection, endangered ... fragile

unsure who to trust
in doubt of the music in my soul
lonely ... hiding the beauty that aches to be set free

where is it safe ...?

for muse:heart

night comes in through knees and finger tips

slides under stones

cools fervent streets

only stars

take exception to night

fish play and waver in bent pools

night birds mutter darkness

panthers spread shadows

from backs of hedges wander strangers

slow on liquid grasses dance the lovers

come on let's dance

we bathe in waters we will never see

I dunno. Sometimes I feel like it's safer outside my own head.

Welcome muse !




It is a very important point methinks. It is only your head which causes denial of the present situation. Your acceptance of 'what is',is only safety. Though,easier said than done.wink




Thank you.

outside forces distort
precious thoughts become
twisted

yes, it is probably me
stepping back, out of view
it will be hard to be
alone again

so much more to say
shimmering music,
sounds of my soul.

words do not come easy for me
whispering, hiding from him ...

unsure ... lost in swirls of forgotten dreams ... it us difficult to breathe under the strain, so many undercurrents that deceive me - i don't understand, naive ... lost

secretly i peek
feeling less alone

your voices are warm
i feel relief, for a moment

how i can blossom when I feel safe!

do i dare open my soul?

how do I know you won't hurt me, like the others?

people in general blossom quite naturally when they feel safe, that's been my experience. some people mean to be hurtful, but not everyone. all you can do is take a chance, it's all anyone can do. being out in the open has its risks, but it has its rewards too. i hope you'll stick around.
