starseeds (a duet): part i

she sat curled ball tight
fright of her light
and her shadow
all consuming
waits for light to fade
affliction made
her wants, desire
pulled towards the
desire can wait another day
no need to rush
this place protects
her, she stays
yet her eyes are called
to gaze beyond
the nearest stars
farther, farther
her fears chain her
to the pea-sized
existence which she
is so afraid to
gravity holds her down
too great the pull
her soul weeps
for the truth to
deciding finally to break free
from this, her shell
self-imposed hell,
left, now found
the life inside growing
a seed that sprouts
a new beginning
her mind now
her brave new world,
filled with color and
wonder, yet she
still felt so all
a flash vision,
spiked her senses
she felt his touch
like being
this is part i in the starseeds series, a collaboration between Ax at Perso~in~Poesia and tiffanybeingfree. Check out Ax’s amazing work. He is a true artist, regardless of what he tries to tell you!

      1. Indeed, I am the resident reblogger and commenter as most will attest. I like what I like and infrequently I actually write. I’m still recovering from surgery, so I will be behind the old power curve for a while, but I’ll still be hanging in there as much as I can. One handed typing doesn’t suck, it Blowssssssssssssssss. but better than using my nose, it’s not very long so brings a new meaning to Up, close and very personal.

It is a great mystery that though the human heart longs for Truth, in which alone it finds liberation and delight, the first reaction of human beings to Truth is one of hostility and fear! -Anthony de Mello
