Awakening Reality

My soul shook, shuddered and shimmied
In all its grand array.
Finally freed from its prison
As it awoke today.

Golden locks against its breath,
Legs wrapped around a thigh…
Love so deep it’d surely drown
But it chose instead to fly.

Life holds no shame
For two entangled souls.
It’s always been-will always be-
Our sacrificial roles.

Ageless, raceless, sexless
There are no boundaries…
Souls exist as they are
Like whispers on a breeze.

It was here in early morning hours
I accepted destiny.
It was here listening to rainy showers
I affirmed Reality:

It’s the truth.
It’s the lies.
It’s a thousand thoughts
Bleeding through the darkness,
Healing with the light-
No longer hiding
in the chasms of the night.

Echoing from the infinite past
To an eternal day- or two-
Soulfelt words unabashed:
“I’m so
in love
with you.”

Been in writer’s block hell for a few weeks and tonight- at long last- the words came! What a great feeling of satisfaction. :o)


relationships, love, moments, truth, perceptions

The child has been raised…and probably raised again lol….time for rediscovery of the arts to fill the empty nest syndrome with adrenalin-filled creativity. Working in charcoal or chalk pastels and living the journey of each creation.

    Oh wow, great ending to this beauty, Lisa.

    And this…
    “Golden locks against its breath,
    Legs wrapped around a thigh…
    Love so deep it’d surely drown
    But it chose instead to fly.”


  • Thank you Fran! This was a bit of a puzzle…I had part of the ending before I even sat down: It’s the truth.
    It’s the lies.
    It’s a thousand thoughts
    In fact, it was going to be the very beginning…amazing how words take shape….thanks again :o)

    Like Lina, I have a sense that this could be to the LOVER, or apply to SELF. We all need that self-love that for many of us seems to have been beaten out of us when we are but children. Then we have to work hard to get it back, our entire adult life. Then again, it’s very romantic to think of this piece as one written to a lover.

    Will you reveal what you intended when you wrote it, Lisa?

  • lisa24n7

    Sure Frannie, I can do that. I believe it was a bit of both…you know my history for the most part so I can certainly relate to finding self-love before you can give that vulnerable, straight- from- the- gut- love to someone else. However, the night I wrote this, it was definitely written for someone and not so much for self-love. Hope that helps.
