In the hush of the morning sky,
I’m bewildered by the lies.
But, the glorious hews mesmerize,
Granting me reprieve from your eyes.
This picture before me,
Sends a piercing stare, a lovely glare.
Suspended in time,
With mellifluous calls from nowhere.
They’re perched in the trees,
I feel a soothing and mellow breeze.
This momentary bliss,
Helps the memories of you leave.
They won’t be gone for long,
I’m enveloped by morning song.
Mother Nature stretches her arms,
And I’m right we’re I belong.
It was a steady rain,
Much like my pain.
The skies opened,
As my heart was drained.
A simultaneous flood,
Spontaneous. Manic. Insane.
Blood darkened mud,
Soul forever stained.
–Justin M. McCahren
As the water unravels upon the shore,
I become more attached to it’s allure.
You can hear the beauty when you close your eyes,
Then open them- and see so much more than before.
We spend our lives fighting to know,
-What it feels like to take it slow.
Through all the loss, hurt and lies,
This water stays, while friends- they come and go.
So I grab a seat down in the sand,
A million thoughts before I land.
All of the sudden my smile is genuine,
My mind clears and I feel like I’m back in command.
