Feels Like Home

Standard

It took you about fifteen minutes to park, I kept busy by writing in my notebook, trying to get all my ideas down on paper so I wouldn’t forget later; because let’s admit it, I always forget come later.

You ease yourself into a parking spot that anyone else would have had trouble with.

We climb out of the car and are welcomed by the ninety-seven degree heat. We embark on our journey just down the road until we hit sand. Immediately, we are greeted with the scent of sunblock and the view of the sun glistening over the ocean ripples.

“Look at the waves,” you awed. They came up in the distance only to break, crashing down just before the shore. I ran off ahead. My right foot stepped into water first. It was chilly, then warm. Each step took me deeper and deeper as the water slapped against me. Then, when I was in shoulders deep, I turned to watch you run through the sand and into the ocean. A big smile on your face as your thick, dark brown hair caught in the wind making you look a joyous and oblivious as a little kid.

A big wave came curling up from behind me. I jumped, with my arms out before me, and rode it into shore to meet up with you. You take me in your strong arms, pulling me against your bare chest, and with my legs wrapped around your waist, you carry me out deeper. Small waves come and go and we hop to float over them, watching them roll to shore.

I’m happy here. In the warm water, under the hot southern sun, with you. It feels like home.

A big wave comes and you throw me over. For a brief second, I’m free-falling, then I hit and sink and laugh. Another one comes and I let it carry me away.

You chose to be defiant. Stand your ground. The waves crash into you and you never falter. Your hazel eyes are locked onto me, squinting in the sunlight. Your pink lips are tight, determined. Your hair is so dark from being wet that it almost looks black and it’s all disheveled from the ocean water beating against you. And the best part about it is, you don’t even know how sexy you look just then.

But I do.

And being here with you, in this new place, it feels like home.

To soar on a paper air plane… As I folded up the pain white paper I wondered what it would be like. If I were small enough to sit right on the edge as it took flight, catching in the wind. How my scarf might dance behind me as the brisk air brushed against my cheeks. Weaving in and out between branches. Up and down. Catching the wind just right so I was flying high with the birds. Up, up, and up! Pinching the folded paper plane between my two fingers, I launched it into the forest and watched it disappear into the trees; imagining it was me.

Stepping Stone

Standard

You left my open heart

To bleed into the dark

Now I’m left with your mark

To remind me of our spark

Now I know

I’m only a stepping stone.

You blew in like a summer breeze

But autumn came too soon

And your grip went loose

Now I see

A stepping stone is all I’ll be.

Maybe one day, someone, somewhere

Will grow tired of walking

Maybe someday, for someone

I’ll be their final stop

Won’t have to board another bus

Won’t have to skip another rock

Won’t have anywhere else to go

We’ll be each other’s home…

But I know I’m meant to be alone

Can’t fool me,

I’m a stepping stone.

 

Will You Let Me In?

Standard

How deep are your waters?
How wide is your sea?
How warm is the beach
Where you and I meet?

I want to swim in your ocean
I want to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

How how high is your sky?
How white are your clouds?
How dry is the land
Where you and I touch?

I want to fly in your eyes
I wan to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

How dark is your space?
How bright are your stars?
How far must I go
Until I’m in your arms?

I want to burn in your chest
Take a rocket into your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in at all?

I want to swim in your ocean
I want to fly through your eyes
I want to dive in your soul
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me in
Will you let me into your heart?

Teetering Edge

Standard

On the ledge
Water’s edge
Face to face with death

Falling to pieces
You’re my glue
But what if your presences ceases?

Teetering on the cliff
The slightest amount of wind
And I could plummet

Slowly sliding off
Will you catch me
Or let me fall?

Warrior

Standard

She lifts herself from the water
Shedding her tail like dry skin
With her spear above her head
She prepares to strike down at the beast
Slithering beneath the surface
The storm rages on
Waves lapsing over the stone perch
In the distance a boat teeters over
On the verge of capsizing
She bears no notice
To anything but the green tail
Poking out of the water
A ray of light shines from beneath the storm clouds
Urging her on
The sounds of seagulls
Squawking in fear
Fills her being with courage.

I actually didn’t touch this song at all because it is one of my all-time favorites. I hope you enjoy!

written 6/25/08:
I search my soul for a song unknown
I want to know why I feel so alone
I start to cry when I want to laugh
I feel so sad life can’t be so bad…

The rain falls
On my head
I know I shouldn’t give in
I believe in true happiness
I believe love is bliss
But I wonder about life’s purpose

I watch the rain clouds move above my head
I wonder if I’ll see them again
I think about my friend and all our fun
I wonder if our fun is gone
Sometimes I fall into a sea
Of memories. Sometimes I make-believe
I’m still young, and have an imagination

The rain falls
On my head
I know I shouldn’t give in
I believe in true happiness
I believe love is bliss
But I wonder about life’s purpose

Don’t you ever wonder, where has the love gone to?
Don’t you ever wonder, who do I belong to?
Do you ever feel alone?
I’m telling you you’re not alone.

The rain falls
On my head
I know I shouldn’t give in
I believe in true happiness
I believe love is bliss
But I wonder about life’s purpose

Don’t you wonder about life’s purpose?

I Could Jump

Standard

I could jump…

No one is around to stop me.

With just the slightest movement

I could be falling

Down into the river

Raging on and on.

I could fall…

Right now off of this old wooden bridge

If I were to do so,

Would anyone even care?

Would I be missed?

Would my name spread like a wild fire

Or would my disappearance go unnoticed forever…

The wind could push me over…

Right into the furious waters

If I teeter forward just a little

I would plummet below

Into the unknown

I could jump…
