love is here

KristinaMari No Comments

love is here
and all around
never before have I felt so bound

to life and lonliness, not to mention
the everlasting long
for your sweet hand on my face

I begin to wonder
where is my place
in this world, where should I be
moreover, what is it that I truly do need?

besides a new head, to think things through
a new mind that doesn’t always seem to dwell on you

a fresh state of mind, content with what it has
that never once sheds a tear when looking back
and knows the days will only get brighter from here…

clean and pure

KristinaMari No Comments

almost sure
denying lures

and letting go

sense him here
always near

never fear

because he is always with me

reaching out
unable to shout
never a doubt

that He will somehow help

hide my face
feel the grace
can then hold my minute place

He has lifted me again

out of the hole
the bottomless whirlpool
that left me a fool

He put me back on my feet

a little wise
in a tightening vice
a melting disquise

leaving only the truth

He has poured graciously into my soul

see things as they really are

saw the signs

KristinaMari No Comments

saw the signs
but missed the road

reached the end
but not where I intended to go

Turned around, began again
fearing deep down
another dead end

knowing inside that the trip was a must
and I had to do it
despite the distrust

The sky is dark and lights are dim
lines are long
the road is thin

Cars are few and spread apart
but I will reach my destination

if only I follow my heart

questions questions

KristinaMari No Comments

questions, questions .. fill my head
what is life and what is death?

is there a difference if one chooses to live
a life with no feelings; chooses not to give

Won’t give love, won’t give fear
won’t give laughter and no tears

Life is what one brings to it
not just walking through without breathing in

a life fulfilled is a life well-lived

A life worth livingin in which a man concedes and gives

Gives of himself
gives of his heart

gives of his being
each and every part

when one lets go
decides to give in

his life at that moment
does finally begin

the biggest illusion

KristinaMari No Comments

of life is love.

A man creates a whole new world within his head that he assumes is reality. It’s not what is really there, it’s what in his heart, he wishes were there. This is the realm from which we all exist. This act alone is mainly responsible for all misunderstandings and for conflicts… 

A woman says something (with certain meaning in mind), her companion takes the words, rearranges them and ends up with an entirely different outlook on the situation.

Truth is, one sees only what he wishes to see. I myself am also a victim; and this is the cause of every one of my conflicts and ends most of my relationships.

The true question is why?

Why can’t things be accepted just as they are?

What’s wrong with simple reality?

walking by, let out a sigh

KristinaMari No Comments

walking by.. let out a sigh.. look of pain
as they choose not to hear my name

just the fragile shell they see
not the truth that’s really me

only the sad and depressed
they care not about the rest

all the happy times I’ve had
they only want to see the bad

all that has brought me down
they use that to keep me on the ground

‘I want to help you’ they always say
but that is just the game they play

to make themselves feel better

a love so blind

KristinaMari No Comments

a love so blind
it cannot see
that it is truly love

just acts the part and chills the heart
to keep from falling in

It knows deep down, just what it is
yet will never say it’s so

It tells the soul to quiet down
it doesn’t want to know

but when it sleep, it becomes weak
the soul comes out to say

that love is there, beyond compare
and it will find a way

the blessing

KristinaMari No Comments

at this moment I am surrounded
pure beauty is falling at my feet

I have found happiness
in the downpour that surrounds me

The pitter-pat of joy’s footsteps on my backporch

The natural light that my ancestors have seen for thousands of years

Yes, I know that tomorrow the sun will beat down once again,
even harder even than it did yesterday

but right now, in this eternal moment
happiness is raining down on me from above

and I am blessed

KristinaMari No Comments

there is nothing
to compare
to what I feel
and what I have 

I stand ready
to do
to say
to stand and to pray
to give my all
to more than say
to do and prove
all that I know is truth

each individual

KristinaMari No Comments

each individual
one large whole

each man for himself
yet, lead and they all will follow

all for one
one for all

united we stand
and divided we fall

It doesn’t matter how alone you choose to be
without others you’ll never truly be free

you have always been there for me

KristinaMari No Comments

you have always been there for me
right there by my side

you’ve shared with me my laughter
and wiped my tears when I cried

you stood up for me and supported me
whenever you thought you should
you gave me things and taught me things
that no one ever could

wild and happy

KristinaMari No Comments

wild and happy
one in the world

surrounded by animated mannequins
that can not see or feel

unbound and free
from all ties that bind

dancing to the music
that originates in the mind

the only one that’s really real

an enlightened creature
who’s spirit no mannequin could ever steal

hi…

KristinaMari No Comments

hi…

how are you?

I’m doing fine…

considering..

my longing, wanting, pretentious heart

and all it’s loud, persistant friends

they won’t give up
and won’t give in
until 100% satisfied

They push me to see you.
They push me to write

Always reminding me that you’re worth the fight

and you know what…

you are.

work and play

KristinaMari No Comments

work and play
fade away
count the days
as they fly by

don’t try
to waste time
catch the train
before it ceases to remain

and you are left with no way out
