the bridge

as i look out over it's edge
leaning into the mystic sloping hills
meeting place of majestic elements

memories collide with anticipation
ancestral voices fill me with 
with what?

i stare with wonder
i look deep into the clouds
and again at my feet
so firmly planted

i know love
i see love 
i am love

this bridge is not new 
yet each time i venture
on it's rickety old boards
creaking and filled with stories 
of many footsteps

the feelings return
becoming my friends 
on this journey

i see our patterns in the stars
i hold them close to my heart
and from this bridge
this perilous bridge
i jump

3 am and sleep evades
wrapped in your loving embrace
breathe in the familiar scent of your love
bury my face in your warmth
comfort, for a moment
breathe out my disgust with humanity
with rules and lies and control
insecurity is the key to freedom
paperwork, the last attempt to control
 a dying shithole of putrid filth
it smothers me
and then i find you again
and i breathe
and i know
and nothing else matters

you know when you’re in a mosh pit
and you fall down
and you think, holy fuck
there’s nothing but boots around my face
and you think to yourself
i have to get myself up
and then
instead of you getting yourself up
there are four hands pulling you up
strangers hands….
well imagine if the world was like that

next to the elephant
it's the squirrel
my second favourite animal
i want to lead the world
AND have fun

i want to kiss you
is all you said
then the avalanche

i celebrate you in so many ways
i thank you in so many more

wish you such joy
and i remember

the rain beats gently
against my heart
reminding me of the sacred rythym
i recognize in my bones
familiar dance
resurrected in love

i am spirit
and joy

i am truth
and i am freedom

like the song of a chickadee
at my window
on a cool spring morning
i speak to you
in secret code
as my heart lifts me
further and further
into your soul

no words can carry this
glorious weight
upon my breast

no music
can ever tell the story
but we will try
and we will try
and the magic of the universe
will carry us home
