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

Foolish Me

Foolish Me

b46fe9872b5274ce150548360689e3b5

Fooled again

Am I always the fool?

Do you target me

On purpose

Knowing my soft & sensitive

Heart …

Such a game you have played

With me all these years

Yet

Looking at me now

You seem confused

You see strength instead

A force you cannot break

Where has my sensitivity gone?

Has it turned into steel?

Trying to lure me back

But I’m not receptive to you

Not right away

Or as quickly as you like

So you are taken back

By this sudden force of strength

That I now, somehow possess

So am I the fool

Or has that become you

Fooled by my change

My wisdom has taken action

I stand tall and proud

I am still the same

Sensitive and sweet heart

But I am stronger now

I cannot be broken down

So easily

As before

So don’t be troubled

Don’t keep trying to break me down

Forget about winning

Try not to defend yourself

Because you have become the fool

Your actions foolish

A display of your own insecurities

Fool me, not again

Dearest acquaintance

As I watch

As you have become the fool

Fooling no one

But yourself

As I am no one’s fool

who.

who.

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?

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

 In This Moment

 1227c0dc8d22d6d0087ee828e02de7ca

Wind brought movement
To your hair in the night air
Hold on tightly to me
Shaken is the bridge we stand upon
In this moment, you are all that I see
 
My field of vision blurry
Melancholy tears flood my eyes
I desperately clench your body
Fear chills my very soul
In this moment, you are all that I desire
 
Last night’s words echo
Penetrating deep in my heart
Leaving me in the valley of despair
Holding on to our velvet embrace
In this moment, you are all that I need
 
We stand upon the precipice
Of this life-changing event
Will you continue to stand by me
Or in your darkness, will you relent?
In this moment, you are all that consumes me
 
Hush while I sing to you
The sweet melodies of my soul
Escalating my desire to please you
Watching light explode in your eyes
In this moment, you are the magic that binds us
 
A hollow tune rings out instead
Foreshadowing events to come
I see our paths diverge
Leaving only shattered pieces to remain
In this moment, you are all that is missing
 
Standing in the frost-bitten morning
Realizing yesterday is long gone
Holding on to the tangible memories
I reach for you to come along
 
Broken pieces in our rear view
But it doesn’t even matter
Tomorrow is the place to heal our souls
Forgetting what was shattered
 
Through the energy that binds us now
Standing by you, you are next to me
In this moment, you are all that I see

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!!

Rescue Me

This Piece is dedicated to my wonderful friend, a rare and beautiful soul… she is a reason to believe that there are true and wonderful people in the world… Our friendship could not have been forced, or faked, or created any other way… except the way that it did… naturally, truthfully & for a beautiful reason. Our similarities are a wonderful gift, and our differences complement nicely. I look forward to tomorrow, having a friend like Hastywords.

This poem is just for her

Rescue Me

Here you are

A light come forth to shine

A force of which

I only entertained existed

The hopeful desire

That others like me

Much to the same sensitivity

You are tender with the world

Beautiful soul

I feed on your light

Comfort me

With your warm, gentle voice

Proving to me

To the world we know

That angels walk upon us

Where ever we go

Here you are

My own friend and savior

A lyrical dance

As you put me at ease

Please tell me

That I am saving you too

From the things that you need

An emptiness I fill in you

Light we share

It grows between us

Sharing soulshine

The building of trust

This very evening

You put me at ease

You lifted me up

When I had fallen to my knees

Here you are

I am here for you too

I honor our tryst

In all that I do

~J. Lefever~

(04/23/13)

This piece is written for a very dear friend. Someone who has given me hope that there are gentle souls still present to this day. The world can make us, turn cold to others, but then… out of no where… a light comes along, and for whatever the wonderous, giving reason, we have been given a true friend.

Thank you for being you.
