Howl at the Moon

I opened the door


And stepped nonchalantly

Wrapped in warmth

Sun on my skin

Lavender breeze

Naive and susceptible

To harsh reality

Expecting a reflection of similarity

Sublime in simplicity

But this

A universe completely foreign

Blinded by the light

Burned in flames of the uncaring

Indifferent and detached

Love seems so easy

Look out into the crowd

A meager existence

You have to climb higher

Get a better view

There are others out there

Huddled and scared

I found myself once

Where light meets dark

And felt the spark

A sign

I’m alive

Sensitive and kind

We haven’t lost our minds

There is beauty in our imperfections

Invisible to the multitudes

Our eyes and hearts are open

We are the gentle ones

Standing strong together






Let’s run away

Flourish in the forest

Mellow out in meadows


Goddess of green

Heal our seeping wounds

Sew our scars into vibrant tapestries

Telling stories of strength

Send smoke signals

Melt like marshmallows

Save our singing souls

As we beat drums

And howl at the moon

                  1. Those ‘others’ owe me 50 bucks. You tell them I’m looking for them. Gosh darn it! (I’m sorry – I didn’t mean to swear on your blog.)

                    1. My blog is R rated so feel free to let the bombs fly! I’m pretty sure ‘gosh darn it’ is G rated. Uh-oh, I just said bombs and my paranoia is kicking in, the cops are coming!

                    2. I’m no doctor, but yes! An apple a day keeps the doctor away, or anyone, really, if you throw it hard enough. 🙂
