Poetry...NEVER had it crossed my mind to write in such a manner. With the lyrical cryptic word play and soulful meaning you have to dig deep to grasp at times, I could appreciate yet had no desire to create myself. Then one day with my fragmented brain in a state of frustration and my heart feeling lonely, I wrote a poem. Stepping away from it I looked at it and thought "Oh shit! I just wrote that, and it's good!" Knowing it needed a bit of fine tuning I connected with a old friend from back in the days of The Vogue. Little did I know he would soon become my trusted confident, inspiration, guru who has encouraged me to let my heart felt be the inspiration and to use my words fearlessly.
After spending long hours of a morning, letting our creative juices flow, sharing work and picking music to flow to, my world opened to way of expressing myself I never knew I had in me. Putting my heart and soul on my sleeve, here is the first piece of a new chapter in my life. Blessed to have been encouraged by many who have been positive influences throughout this challenging time, I release my first piece to you...
Lost in a dark storm.
Clouds lifted with nothing left.
Nothing left to feel.
Wounded unable to get up.
A path to move forward.
Cannot return to what once was.
Poisoned, pain, ill-fated.
Moving forward and not looking back.
Quest for change.
Stumbled upon the unexpected.
A second chance.
Brought back to life, reignited.
Learning to dance again.
Shackles unlocked, able to move.
New rains wash away the pain.
Naked new brightness of light.
Forging a new path for the same journey.
