As We Own The Night

 

I can call you a mirror

When I look into your eyes

My spirits guide and savior

Wipe the tears from my eyes

 

Beautiful you…

You always were

As our friendship exploded

Standing beside her

 

I can call you my earthly sister

As our hearts met and entwined

My eternal beautiful girlfriend

Who comforts me with her lines

 

Gorgeous you…

You always were

As our friendship shattered

The sadness before

 

As so many moons

Have passed in our skies

Knowing forever that

We will never hide

 

Delicate you…

I am watching you glow

As strong as ever

We have always known

 

Even the shining sun

Doesn’t completely reveal you

Your inner being colorful

Like a rainbow of sparkling dew

 

Wondrous you…

I bask in your spirit

Always feeling you

Ignoring our limits

 

The tides of the ocean

Greet our toes in the sand

Where ever my spirit

My heart holds your hand

 

Incredible you…

Bright, shinning light

Smile at the world

As we own the night

Yesterday, I thought of you

In the normal ways I always do

But somehow in the moment, I knew

That you were never really ever you …

I wonder when

Things started to shift

From being us to strangers that quit

We quit being us

Who we ever were

Was it all just fake

I was never sure

Today, I sit and think of you

I wonder why you do what you do

I can’t imagine having the time

To be anyone, pretending to be mine

What is the point

Of pretending to be

Anything that

Is fake to see

Tomorrow, I won’t even ask

At this point, I don’t care if I ever knew

Who care what you’re doing

Or what you may need

I don’t care if you’re lonely

You fake little seed

I never tried to hide me from you

Yet, I never even knew you,

who are you, who?

Moving through the Night

I have been blessed with a wonderful soul. Alastair and I have been exchanging words for a few months now, and I have truly enjoyed getting to know this beautiful person. My warm-hearted friend and I have written a duet, it is his first poetic duet and I am honored to have shared this experience with him. Take some time to visit him as well by following this link to ALASTAIRS BLOG!!

‘Moving through the Night’
 
I fear as the storm approaches
and night-time falls
I hear your voice from afar,
as to me it calls
 
Through the mist and the fog
I can see the light.
I envision your face, your help,
your warrior’s might
 
The more I approach you
The more I see
The more your hand stretches
Reaching out for me.
 
Remembering the moment
The very first time we spoke
Delicate you
Falling before me
 
In the night air
Down on bruised knees
I can see you
Beginning to bleed
 
I look in your face
Your eyes full of tears
I take your hand
Try to ease your fears
 
Come sit beside me
Under the stars in the sky
You have run far too long
And for many reasons why
 
Let go of the years
Let go of the pain
I will be with you
Tonight in the rain
 
As I give you these words
My promise to you
Darling sweet friend
May your strength pull you through
 
In the chaos of the storm
There is a sudden, soft break
Be calm, precious you
You are not your mistakes
 
Through the mist and the fog
Let us both find our light
Leaving the past far behind
As we travel through the night.

Together Forever

It has been quite some time, since I have put my emotions into words that rhyme … I came across this lovely piece, that I wrote with A Shade Of Pen some time ago.

A Poetic Duet

Together Forever

imagesCAKI0K93

Every time I think of you
I can’t help but smile
Because your sweetness dissolves
The worry that pains my eye
 
Every time I think of you
My world turns bright and colorful
Bad things just slip away
Because you are so wonderful
 
Your words melt my beating heart
As a new emotion swells up inside
Slowly, I find myself slipping away
From the tormenting ghosts of yesterday
 
As May flowers burst into bloom
I am held inside of your embrace
You keep me safe from many storms
Finding comfort that is tender and warm
 
In your shadow, I will grow
Together, we shall walk this road
Distance fails to matter anymore
When people are united from the soul
 
hands
 
When the sun sets into the sky
Another day has passed us by
Every time I think of you
I feel the love between us too

So, we will grow everyday
Time will only bring us close
Although, separated by countless miles
I feel the love of your smile

After the Rain
 
Those storm clouds finally clearing
The rain no longer falls
The children play in the glowing sun
Instead of behind paper walls
 
The warmth of the sun
Kisses my skin
Like never-ending days
I feel alive again
 
The shade beneath the redwood
Is comforting and calm
The leaves floating in the breeze
So lightly graze my palmSo Lost am I in such a trance
In heaven I am surrounded
With beautiful things everywhere
Never again to be grounded

Springtime flowers blooming
The in orange, yellow and red
The simple natural beauty
Much more than can be said.

Sun shinning down upon my skin

Embraced by the world around me
Strom has passed, new day has arrived
This is the way life should be

In A Nut-Shell ~ Tryst Update

ece759ae64f2973d21c1a7d8d7f75d6f

In A Nut Shell ~ Tryst Update

 

Last weekend I posted a tweet that kinda made me laugh… I tweeted that I need to start writing things down! As in, making lists.. of things I want to do, need to do, have going on, and ideas that POP up in my head through out the course of the day. This made me laugh after I hit ‘tweet’ because, well, I am a writer!! I write ALL the freakin time!! How is it that I am forgetting things… ? What’s up with that?

 

In a nut-shell, I have been extremely busy. This has been a very good thing for my emotions and grieving (the loss of my brother), but it has been frustrating in other areas of my life.

 

In a nut-shell, I am NOT managing my time well! I have ongoing projects, things on the back burner, new things coming forward and millions of thoughts floating around in my head…

 

In a nut-shell, I really wish there were more minutes in the day… but then again, I’m glad there is not!! If I crammed any thing else into my already busy life, right now, I might lose it and go postal!!

 

… I am way behind in writing here, my Tryst Land has been seriously neglected!! I mean, I haven’t been doing even my Daily Reflections, and those I LOVE, because they really help to center my thoughts and feelings… I write them in hopes to help others, or maybe inspire, or heal, but they are really helpful to me and so when I don’t ‘reflect’ I feel like I’m ‘neglecting’ my spirit…

 

…I am behind in my book project and my manuscript… I have a poetry contest that I’ve been preparing for and have three hundred poems of mind to choose from, and have gotten NOWHERE in actually choosing!!

 

…My friendships, which mean the world to me, and most of which, my really good friends who don’t even live in KC, I have been meaning to pick up the phone and here I am… still needing to make my friendly ‘Jen-calls’ to my peeps… I miss my people!!

 

In a nut-shell, I am freakin busy!! I have a new business that just started and work on top of that… where am I going to find some more time? Better time management? Or even just some peace and freaking quiet? When will things be simple and calm?

 

Meanwhile, I have the one year date of my little brother’s death looming over my head… and words do those feeling absolutely ZERO justice…

 

This has been a Tryst Update. Brought to you by Jen, who is just a girl, trying to stay afloat, in a crazy, ever-changing world.

Daily Reflection on Tryst (04/24/13)

Daily Reflection (04/24/13)

After the Rain…Chasing Your Happiness

Mid-week. Yea.. so it’s wednesday already and the week has been so nutty that I feel beat down and tired as if it was Friday!! I so wish it was Friday… Anyway, today the sun is shinning and the 30 degree, sleeting-freezing rain that we had yesterday, at the end of April like mother nature thinks it’s still freakin winter… or something… is all over!! It’s slightly warm, with blue skies, practically cloudless, and a light lovey breeze. That is my Mid-West weather report for the day…

My reflection today is inspired by a conversation I had last night with my wonderful girlfriend, Hastywords, who I’m giving hella shout-out’s all day here!! She and I were talking about how important it is to wake up in the morning, smile just for you, and do what you gotta do to chase your happiness!!

I have found myself lost, so lost, in the stresses I have facing me that… I am forgetting about all the things I really really want!! I have put my happiness to the side, and that’s what we were talking about… that’s no bueno!! Don’t do that nonsense!!

Do not put your happpiness to the side!!

If you are not happy, really NOT happy on the inside, then you’re gonna have a hell of a time making someone else happy. I know from personal experience because I have been battling a bunch of things and happiness is kind of a joke to me right now, but this is totally and completely my fault, and as a result, the closest person to me has been effected by it.

Remember that you always come first in your life. If your ducks are not in a row, then you find your life elements off balance, and that can throw other things out of whack. For the time you work, also make time for fun and things that are rewarding to all your hard work. If you are all work and no play, your happiness will be a problem area for you.. it has been for me.

So, I am trying to make room, and time, in my life for more fun things, like taking some fun classes, yoga, really writing my book, I mean really writing it.. and seeing friends here in the city. All winter long it has been work, bills, debt, stress, blah blah blah… no wonder my happiness is like, “HEY!! Why have you abandon me??”

I hope everyone is chasing their happiness in life… it is so important to not think that there is all the time in the world, because time is so precious, and it goes by real fast. So go chase your happiness today!!

Have a super great day Tryst Family!! XoXo, Jen

Tryst Thought: There is a certain outlook that another can give you on a situation that you are struggling with. I like to think that I have all the answers… but I got such a good perspective last night from talking with Miss Hasty.. and I am go glad I got her!! Good friends that step up to the plate when you are down are not the kind of frienships you get in everyone. So cherish those who have your back… and by all means, have their backs when they need you!!

Karma – What goes around, comes around… you will get what you sow!!

LOVE!!
