Tutte Le Cose Svaniscono…

Confess to the wind
Let it carry your words far
Feel deserved peace
Allow air to fill your lungs with the love you have within
Let your burden fade away...

1318…

Give yourself grace and kindness.

Find joy in the place where the love in you lives, even when you know it alone.

Forgive the ones that failed you, because they lost more than just you.

And, never regret the reasons why your heart has a rhythm… dance all of your years to it.

Tu…

Though your lips never caressed the nape of my neck...
          Your hands never touched the curve of my waist...
    Your arms never gave me warmth...
And, though your words were never spent on me...

It was your eyes that failed to see, everything you had in me

Banale, ma Vero…

Why do my eyes lie to me?
Why is hope the only thing I see? 
Do my eyes see things not there?
Images, moments we never shared

Why do I see something more in you?
Why isn’t there a clearer view?
Why do I see something more than you can see?
Is that the reason you find fault in me?

Maybe my eyes didn’t lie
Perhaps the reason why my heart still cries?
Nevertheless, I know your eyes have failed to see
Everything that you had in me

Ammissione…

Living in silence
I can hear the deafening truth
I genuinely lost my way
Looking to find something in your eyes
My heart animated unreality
My desire…
Nothing but greed
Always answering your call…
My fidelity to you
Leaving you in the past
It’s so very hard
Believing I love you…
Is even harder
Convincing myself it was wrong
Is a bridge too far
The truth flows through my veins
And, the truth is all I have

Non sono Piccola…

I will never be sorry
For the love in my heart
For saying what I need to throw into the universe
For doing what I must do
For living what I feel
And, though you look at me with disdain
With the same eyes that once swallowed me whole
No, I will never be sorry

Only think of me
And say…
“She was not small”

Promessa….

I will walk this road
I will run this road
I will fall and get up
Again and again
I will walk this road
To where the light is bright
I will walk the road I was born to
With my simple heart

Ho Deciso…

I decided
Long ago
To stop asking
Do I deserve you in my life?

I decided
Long ago
To stop asking
Out loud in the night
Will you ever hold my hand?

I decided
Long ago
I’m just going to love you
Because… I simply love who I love

Now I ask the night
To hold you safe
To bring you joy
And, that you sometimes remember I smiled for you

I ask the heavens
To leave love in my heart
Instead of begging
To take it all away

I ask that love never leaves me
So, my heart keeps on beating
When I miss something I never had
Or when I remember, how easily I was erased

I decided
Long ago
That this is how I will love you
