drums of thunder

clash with the silence

leaving cracks as they become louder


a girl

sitting silently

looks up

beams of flying light

break through the cloud filled night sky

that surrounds her


the drums quicken

grow nearer

cracks become holes


the girl

sees new worlds

the icy blue of her eyes begin to thaw

as the holes become larger

reds blues and greens

replace the black that had been suffocating her


the drums quietly disappear

beams of light replaced by a fiery yellow ball

the black that had filled her life is gone


the girl

stands up

knees shaking

threating to buckle

eyes wide

her heart absorbs the many colors


and the chance to start again


I waited

I waited

as the snow fell yet again

from the coldest of gray skies

gray skies that were colder than a marble statue

gray skies that held no hope or promise

for what comes next

trapping me

so that all I could do was wait


I waited for you

to save me from the cold

wrap your warm arms around me

arms that were strong and protective

arms that would keep me safe

and heat the chill that seeped to my bones

that were frozen in place

refusing to let me move


I waited but I didn’t want to

I wanted to be free

like the eagle who soars through the sky

observing the life below it

braving not only the bluest of summer skies

but the stormiest winter ones as well

you acted as the barrier that held me back

even though you didn’t know it


I’m still waiting

and I probably always will

when the gray skies are replaced by colorful shades of blue

I’ll stare at them

not being able to see anyone but you

you’ve drawn me in

trapped me in a web

but you didn’t meant to
