I want to leave something that lasts.
Paint a masterpiece.
Construct my art.
I want the world to gaze at the beauty
that pours from my heart.
The eloquence of my expression.
The creation that I long to impart.
I want to encapsulate all of creation
with just one photograph.
Make real what is abstract.
Words to edify and enrich,
holding unfathomable impact.
To resonate with the soul
and keep creativity intact.
I want to destroy the constructs of mediocrity.
Build beauty out of the rubble.
Eliminate clichés from the start.
Strip away at the façade.
Forcing convention to depart.
Leave only the naked truth.
The truth of art.
I long to show you the light that I saw in your eyes.
The light, the hope, and the love you do not see.
I felt a wash of sadness wave over and touch my soul.
I want to set you free.
I want to reach into the deepest part of your heart.
Touch the deep scares that reside there.
Your wounds they are familiar to me.
The scars that have been untouched by human hand since their conception.
I feel like I have the key to unlock the life inside of you.
But I know it cannot be me.

The light faded and all was dark. For just one moment it was as if it had never happened.
Slipping through worlds.
How would it have been if I had known?
How should it have been if I could have paused?
I wish I could return.
I knew better but I forgot myself.
Teetering on the edge
Now I’m falling
Panic sets in
What have I done?
Lying in my ditch
Bruised and battered
Wet with tears and fear
Jerked into reality
Eyes cloaked in sleep
It felt like a dream
For just one moment it was as if it never happened.

Shaken to my core
Sleep still in my eyes
Scared of what it means
Searching for the truth
Slowly coming round
Steadying my nerves
Soon I will forget
Should I face the truth?

Today I say I do
Today our love dances on the wind
Enamoured by words breezing through.
Our dreams will flourish into life
As the future comes into view.
Today the secrets of my soul pour forth
Our joined destiny we now pursue.
Your love found me, then moved me
And now your love has made me new
Today mouths are speaking
What our hearts breathed true.
In the reflection of your eyes
Who I’m becoming is imbued
Today my heart is given freely
And I have entrusted it to you.
A myriad of moments interwoven
Our vows we now accede to.
To shelter from within, I do
To walk beside you, I do
To laugh till we cry, I do
To be your friend, I do
To edify with my words, I do
To speak sweet truth, I do
To express my heart, I do
All I can say is, thank you.
