Life Awaiting

Life Awaiting

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Let it all fall away —
Voyage from what once was
   to what could happen

* * *
Unburden yourself from things that are the past; these are unchangeable — the future however, is still unwritten.

Love, KJ

Night Butterflies

Night Butterflies

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Watching
one another,
our emotions
   flutter
in euphoric dances,
Our soft voices
touching and awakening
   night butterflies;
A budding romance
exploring
the airwaves
   all around us

* * *
That first glance, that first inkling of something special; it’s undoubtedly unlike anything else in this world.

Love, KJ

Flight of Release

Flight of Release

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Black silhouettes wait
in the skeleton hands
grasping for the sky —
   Shaking free our shackled wings,
   together we embrace the light

* * *
Dark thoughts, regrets, sadness, they can wander our mind like haunting ghosts; don’t be afraid to let them go in search of a better tomorrow.

Love, KJ

Bus Ride to Heaven

Bus Ride to Heaven

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Colours fade away
as a bus slowly travels
into the sunset —
   Growing weightless, it ascends;
   Ghost passengers of the sky

* * *
Despite all that we learn in our time on this planet, there’s still so much shrouded in mystery; who will ever truly know where we go when we die?

Love, KJ

Whispers of Change

Whispers of Change

Poem from the Handwritten series.

How it calls to me,
that whisper of sunkissed wind
   rippling with changes

* * *
Change can be a daunting thing from time to time, yet change can affect your life with so much positive vibrations; embrace it, and dare to grow.

Love, KJ

Treasure Map

Treasure Map

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Find me
on the faded edges
   of a map
   once drawn,
Navigate
the ink-black outlines
   of seven seas
and treasure islands,
and meet me
   finally,
   as one,
at the end
of the horizon
   that moment
   stars begin
      to fall

* * *
No matter the journey, I feel some souls are destined to meet, no matter when or where, life will bring them together.

Love, KJ

Impressions

Impressions

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Ghosts
kissing in the rain,
our impressions
   linger
   like the tears
falling in broken jewels
upon my hesitating
   feet;

We still haunt
these streets,
   you, and I.

* * *
Memories, they linger in places, sounds and things; like ghosts, they can haunt our steps and make us relive the happiness, and the heartache.

Love, KJ

Contentment

Contentment

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Breathing a deep sigh
towards the silver moon, regret
   tumbles down, discarded

* * *
We carry so much with us, thoughts, doubts, regrets — sometimes we need to let them go to carry on into better times.

Love, KJ

New Found Romance

New Found Romance

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Weak-kneed I stumble
into the sweet fall of love
on words soft-spoken —
   Hands touch like petals reaching
   for the fiery touch of light

* * *
When the words of love blossom from your heart, set them free with a whisper from your lips; love is a gift best shared.

Love, KJ

Silver Moon Truths

Silver Moon Truths

Poem from the Handwritten series.

Silver edge shining,
the moon seems to cut and bleed
into the dark night sky —
   Haunted, the cold wind carries
   all the words left unspoken

* * *
Sadly, I think there’s much of this: loneliness — that longing to share our thoughts and words, yet not always being able to do so… for sometimes, it is even hard to admit truths to ourselves.

Love, Kiyo
