this crazy

This crazy
in my head
Asphyxiates
Maddens and
Infuriates
Dangles sanity
like it was candy
It beckons
Reckoning
To reason
The treason
That’s spawning
and longing
To run free
It’s perspective
Not objective
Quite threatening
Insatiable
Incorrigible
Obligatory
Conciliatory
Options out-the-door
And I guess
That I must
Acquiesce
Relinquish
All my brain matter
To this Mad Hatter
Rest my laurels
and enjoy the show

with these wings

A light that carries me
Beneath an angel’s wings
Lifted high
Soaring bright
Is how you make me feel

When I lay in your arms
Be still my beating heart
Warm and strong
For I long
Your love to keep me warm

Tenderly
Speak to me
Every part
Of my soul
Fill me so
Completely

Your light that carries me
New worlds I imagine
In my mind
All I see
Perfect love
Eternity
Bring to me
To my breast this love freed

Risked heart

Fell for you
I was schooled
Now you’re done
Can’t move on
I am blue
Not quite through
Loving you
Forever
Delivered
Restrained sane
Time stands still
Beautiful
Sorrowful
When heart is
Filled it’s stilled
When heart is
Dead it’s lead
This girl so smart
She risked her heart
Open wound
Much too soon
For to mend
Her world ended
The defendant
Will rise
And while
Inside
She dies
Defies
Denies
Refuses
To lose
Keeps her Faith
That some time
At some place
A new dawn
Past is gone
All erased
You’re replaced
