Faded Memories and Beauty

When I saw you today
My heart strings yanked your memory from
the overlooked and disregarded shelf of my mind
And though it was dusty, it was still there;
All the laughter of our school days,
Like faded construction paper.
The old pictures of us,
 long yellowed with age,
The cobwebs could not hide its beauty;
or the scent that enveloped me
 the way your hugs used to
Smelling like the ocean and sprinkled with sand.
It all made me wish I could go back,
Every time I have failed to stop myself from glancing behind,
You have been there.
Though now we both no longer feel the same inside
and whatever feelings we had for each other
have long since died
You have your new life and friends now
As I have mine
I know we can never go home again,
You will always have that place in my mind
On the shelf filled with
Faded Memories and Beauty

We Are Happier Together

Though no one else remembers the past that scared our hearts
I know,
And you will never forget.
And that will be enough, I guess.
At least together we can have truth
Which no one else seems to share.
I know how you lived,
Alone, Broken, Lost
And I know you hate self pity.
You know me,
How I was never enough (or so I was told)
What does it matter if it was never true
When her ruler measures me still
We are both so damaged
You and I
Yet through the fragments
We found laughter in each other
Even if Laughter makes the sadness worse when
it inevitably comes
Just like it's so much darker when a light goes out
Than if it had never shone.
You toss your head and laugh
For that second I am with you,
Everything is perfect
We are happier together
We radiate light
Keeping sorrow and darkness at bay as long as we can
Hold tight; Against the shadows to this moment
And your breath

Something told to me by an old convict who spent his life in prison:
"You can do alot better in the Truth. The best game you can play is No Game; because the Devil always trick himself. Control must be in order and order must be in Truth. And when in Truth you can face the problem as it is, not through distorted judgements. We alone effect ourself. There is no one, no we, unless we make it, redeem it and come back in grace with Truth. One lie and forever and Truth goes on and on without you. People that lie have no honor. Keep your honor and you keep your soul."

I Will Remain

I must not Fear.
Fear is the Mind killer.
Fear is the little Death that brings total obliteration.
I Will Face My Fear

I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past me,
I will turn to see Fear's path.
Where Fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I Will Remain
