Stand By Me

MAI's picture

Oh darlin'

The emptiness of it all
Is like a punch in the stomach
Can be devastating as hell

And a strange melancholy
Strums the strings
Of the heart guitar

Worlds Within Worlds

MAI's picture

I can't say anything except I love you

Knowing that I can but stand by

Like a ghostly apparition

And hold your hand
And cry with you
And smile with you

The River Sings

MAI's picture

The breath inside the breath

On the strings of a heart guitar

And a whisper and a tune

Riding the waves

This thought stream flows

Enchanting seductress this
A moth to the flame

And The Show Goes On

MAI's picture

I hung on to hope
Of how things should be

And a fear that goes hand in hand
With the hope

Lest it all cave in

With nothing to hang on

And the handholds gone

The Threads Of Life

MAI's picture

As the hail stones the evening before
Pounded on the glass doors to the balcony

And the whistling winds
Sang full throated

And thundering clouds
Played a symphony

A Hundred Thousand Leaves

MAI's picture

The end of that which never was

And Nothing at all

Dancing at the edge of a feather

In and through
And each other

A Million Gigs Playing In The Head

It's all always spontaneous

There's the rub

We might prefer one image over another... and there's nothing right or wrong about that

We are our preferences

On A Breath And A Breeze

MAI's picture

The changes can be really challenging and excruciating
At first

It's all the same
But boy oh boy
Nothing is the same
Ever again

As all the ideas one's held of oneself

The Brain Sees Through It's Own Charade

MAI's picture

It's opinions and beliefs all the way

We are these beliefs
And are not separate from them

It's the only place
You and I exist

No one can say what's going on in anyone's head
