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

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

how are you?

I’m doing fine…


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

alone, I guess

KristinaMari No Comments

alone i guess
everyday just like the rest

just a few are better
and just a few are worse

never knowing what to expect
just a day
nothing special to dissect

Follow through with the motions
no distinct questions, no solutions

Everything just happens
never sure exactly why

Then slowly, a tear slips by
bewildered, don’t know why I cry

but yet, I do, and the tears fall free

somehow, amazingly, they bring peace
and for this life of confusion, I am granted partial release

see all that I want

KristinaMari No Comments

see all that i want
right in front of me

the dream that’s been in my head
I can finally see

nothing i can do
to make it all come true

for now it’s in the hands of God
awaiting the approving nod

it’s hard to see it all so close
and yet so far away

when the only thing that one can do
is wait and hope and pray

extend it far

KristinaMari No Comments

extend it far
to the farthest star

set your eyes
don’t be fooled by the simple disguise

That elegantly lies
right before you

Ignore the false
listen only to the calls
from within

the answer is there

KristinaMari No Comments

the answer’s there..slightly out of reach
the question is yours..for you to expand and teach

learn more then ever before
let out all that makes you shout
let go and just enjoy the show

looking at everything

all alone, but not really

KristinaMari No Comments

all alone, but not really
in my own world that’s not really my own
thinking thoughts that aren’t really mine
living a life that does not belong to me

so what’s the difference if I lose or win
or since it’s not my game, can I ever be anything but a useless pawn?

jump around on the board for no obvious reason
just to move

but the one who made me knows the way
leads me somehow through every game I play

letting in is not defeat
just as making it to the end isn’t victory

it’s not the destination that’s important
but the long route that gets you there


KristinaMari No Comments

the light goes out
and I want more

like a promise
something real
to justify the way I feel

to give me a reason to let it grow
to convince me that you will not go

I’m worried sometimes that this dream will end
and I’ll go back to the beginning again

but that’s the chance one has to take
when playing games with such high stakes

when you see

KristinaMari No Comments

when you see
you can be

and until you do
you won’t be free
