Write With Me

Writing has been a chore the past few weeks. I’ve been going through a lot lately and every time I tried to sit down and write I was too distracted. There has been a lot of scribbling and doodling. Bits and pieces of potential poems but nothing finished. I finally got into the right headspace in the wee hours this morning and some happier than I feel inspiration hit me. The result is something I’m content to post now. Hope you all enjoy!

Write With Me

I’m no easy prey to catch
You’ll have a long ended chase

If you want to play with fire
You have to learn to dance with the flame

You want to lean in closer
Let me tell you a secret
This infinity isn’t indefinite
Apart from our conception of it
So don’t squander the present
Stand waylaid no longer
Step in and dance with me
Live now and fearlessly

Take a good long look
Right here in front of you
I’m like an open book
There are chapters bygone
And blank pages ahead
A life, living, breathing narrative
But I’m a different kind of story
I don’t need to be read

If you want to know more of me
Come write with me instead


Little Renegade

So here is my latest. Again something a bit different. Enjoy:)

You’re tired of running little renegade
You’ve been pushed to the brink of sanity
You’re tired of crying little renegade
You’ve been prodded to the breaking point
Past everything you thought might shatter you

You’ve only known a world in constant shift
You’re a wanderer, a dreamer, a brash heart
You keep peace inside yourself on brighter days
And wale, face upturned towards dark skies on the rest

Like the rolling in of thunder clouds
And the static in the air just before a storm
I’ve watched your life little renegade
Tumultuous and jaded more than most
I’ve seen your soul unleashed little renegade
Though you think you’ve kept it reined in close
As close as lightning strikes searing it’s target to the core

You push yourself harder when you feel alone
Energy as shocking as electricity behind your actions
You move like fire, flames burning brilliance
Unpredictable, prepossessing and dangerous
You keep onlookers in awe, fear an envy
No one ever really understands your beauty

But I do, I see right through you, little renegade
Your transparency reliant on your dreams
Weather you listen them or not
From me you can not hide, to me you can not lie
Despite my wary instincts, little renegade, be brave
You are the part of me I can’t deny
