today another year

marked by the moon 
marked by the skies
marked in the look I see in your eyes
I cannot fade away
I cannot turn astray
I can only run to you
I can only come to stay
all you have said let it be
all you want and have for me
there’s no reason to live but you
why hold back when I have all of you

A study in creating great characters, by Aaron Ehasz (head writer of Avatar the Last Airbender). A lot of animation lead characters are forced to fit the far right criteria, but think of the many classic characters that are better described by the left: Tony Soprano, Frank Underwood, Jamie Lannister, Walter White, etc.

a shadow flutters out of the corner of my left eye

following the streak it quickly hides
turning back I face ahead
tunnel vision leads my tread

pressing in 

diving deep
the end isn’t there
beginnings always in midair
murky water stinging eyes
darkness clouding sunny skies
drops of terror falling down
pooling, filling cavernous hearts
limits reached, lines stretched
filtered, cleaned, bleached, strained
fear is gone and love remains 

I thought I knew what love was 

until it hit me in the face
with a passion so strong I didn’t recognize what it was
my eyes were covered in mud
they were washed seven times in seven ways
in seven times in seven months I could see
love found me so inconspicuously
it took over slowly and surely
going deep in my soul 
starting a fire unquenchable
burning up the past
incinerating the lies
that bound me to earth
and kept me in linear time

when I open the door

when I lay at your feet
gentleness rushes forth
tender love looks at me
I can hear you speak
when I listen I learn
when I wait I grow
when I move you’re there
when I’m still you carry me 

every day I lose a little more

my mind goes to places I’ve never been before
dreams so real, so fantastic, so free
to wake is grief and to pray is to dream
sweating in my sleep
speaking sacred words
the spoken is done
action set in motion
waves of becoming flooding over me
I can breathe underwater
like the fishes in the sea
