Storms--AZ Rains Series---Angels, Guardians, & SoulMates Sereis(AZ Rains--Wings--Roses--Black--Reflection Sereis)

The rain in my head.
That's the funny part.
I see him
wherever I am.
In my sleep
In my path
in the stars above me.
He's still there.

The sky
opens up to me
&
it lets me see him here with me
again.
So many fear it
the storms that ravage the Earth.
But what they don't know
what they don't hear
Is him.

They only see the fear
the rage.
The tearing of the sky above them.
They don't see the Life
that crawls out
from under.
From the
scrub brush at their feet.
As if
only Life they can identify
deserves to survive.

Oh.
But that's not us
is it.
We see.
We see it all.
The
sounds of the air
ripping through our sky.
The textures of the sky
as the colors change
the clouds that feed us
open their arms ound us
&
welcome us home.

This.
This is what I know.
What I live for.
What keeps me
alive.
These Storms.
Your Face.
Your Touch.
Your Breath in mine.

Free--AZ Rains Series--Angels, Guardians, & SoulMates Series

Dance in the rain with me.
Meet outside my door.
Splash in the puddles 
tell me I'm the only one.

Race me to the edge.
Show me the way.
Chase me like you do.

Feel me standing here
close to you.
They way I do you.
Let me feel your body heat
close to mine.
Don't let me shiver
or feel the cold.

Show me how to be free.



Always--AZ Rains--Angles, Gaurdians, & SoulMates Series---Recovery/Addiction/Mental Health/Chronic Illness---Loss/Grief/OTRB---Hope & Survivors Series

This.
This is what
has become of you.


A tiny grain of Truth.
A tiny
shred
of Hope.
Of memory.

I don't want to see you
this way.
A far away look
a glance over my shoulder.
A distance
not
traveled anymore.

I do see you still.
In this Mirror
of translucence.
I see you
your mouth
as you never speak to me.
Your eyes
as you never look away from me.
You face
as you tilt your head
just right
& you see me too clearly.

I hope I never forget you.
My tiny grain of Truth.
My Sanctuary.
My
Sanctum
Sanctorum.
My
reason for the Rain.

I look back
&
I recall the desperate need for you
&
I wonder
if this feeling now
is the right one
the ability to live without you.
Or if it is
wrong
to miss the unfiltered high
I knew when all I had was you.

To visit that Time
to Love you as I do
this shall remain the same.
But to crave you.
To withdrawal so violently
without you in me.
Maybe this
is one of those things
that shall also pass.

Is it wrong
to miss what I no longer need.
Or is wrong
that I no longer need you.
I'm not sure.
I may never be.
But I know
that what I have with you
is still real.
Still pure.
Then or now.
In my system 
as my only way to breath.
Or my precious
Memories.
I know
I will
always
have
you.


My Past
as solidly held
in my hand
as the days you were here.
No Separation of Time
or of Place
will ever
truly
take
me
away from
you.

A Little While--Reflection / Black Series----Warriors--Recovery--Hope & Survivors

The Duel



I rarely
if
ever
name the things
I'm about to say.
I have
only
a well know presence
in my Mind's Eye
that I know
will pursue me
until
I can be rid of him
&
put him here
on paper.




But this.
This One is different
It's who I
Really Am.
&
It is not
so easily persuaded
to
leave.



As I sit here
I know
that
what I say
what I know
about me
about what
I Really Am.
Is not something
I can
take back.
Something
that can be
undone
unsaid.
Untrue.



So
why do I
say it.
Why try.
Why pursue
something that I know
will only
be
a part of me
no matter
what I do.
Whether I admit
it to you.
Or I take it
with me
as I go on
with who
I've always
really
been.



I don't know.
Maybe
to feel that
no matter
what
we are.
No matter
who we are
not who
we've become.
Will
still be able
to enter the Light.


Be able to
feel
the warmth.
&
not
have to feel
the shame.
Even for
a
little
while.

How We Move--Relection/ Black Series----Musicians--Artists--Writers--Poets--Actors--Hope & Survivors

Heights.
The
undefinable
unfathomable depths.
They used to
lay before
me.
Lay just beneath
me
A distance
in the depths
of my hated
fears.

And
as I look beyond
them
now.
And
I see
the depths
of my own
inability
to fathom
myself.
My own
inability to
resist
the easy call
of weakness.
Of
unforgiveness.
Of simple
fear
of failure.

That
one moment
in Time
where all things
join
together
come towards you
&
you know
it's for you to decide.
For you
to forsake your own
Will.
And simply
Be.
Whatever that my
be.

Oh
to simply be.
To understand that
all Life
all
Death.
All
things.
Are never really
in our control
at
all.
That
we are only
translucent....
things.
Transparent
&
sheer.
A
syphon
for all things
we can
never
truly
understand.

And't
it's in those
Moments.
In those seconds
that
tick by.
We see.
We finally....
see.
That this Life
Isn't
a
Blessing
or
a
Curse.
It's
merely
an Illusion.
A
Myth in the
making.

What
Parts we play.
What
voices we carry.
What
story we
someday
tell.
Is
simply
the foreshadowed
end.

How....
Ah.
How.
Now
how we tell
our
Story.
This.
This is what
we all wait for.
The climatic
end.
The crescendoed
orchestrated
vibration
that runs it's course
through
our
Lives.

This
is what I
now
hear.
The
beautiful
strings
on which
all life
is
echoed.

And
I see now
that
no matter
the Song
It is
how
we move
to that
silent
music
Is all
that
really
mattered.

You--Reflection / Black Series

The Surface
underneath.
This.
This is where
I Live.

The locals
who dwell
here.
They think
they know me.
Have seen me.
Think
 this entitles them
to my
Name.



Ah
but they don't
know.
Don't understand
that
in this Place
a Story
only grows.
A Masquerade
of sorts.
A sustained
wound.
A Healing
that which
can never
be found.


This.
This is what
keeps me
here.

This break
in the fault line
this
caress
of my Soul.
a feathers
touch.
That
those sweet
echoing
moments.
Are
really of
you....



So
I dwell here
you see.
A
symphony
of 
Delusions.
A
Catastrophe
of proportions
only
 you & I
can
see.



The calling
of your
name.
The unending
Song
of
sweet
Remorse.
Your gentle
touch.
Your breath
on
my face.


These reminders
of
you.
These
Moments.
Stolen.
Encased in
an
amber & crimson
tide.
Those colors
that
will always
be of
you.


These things
keep me
here.
Enshrined.
A
Sacrifice
to
Once
Was.
My only
Breath.
My only
Life.


You.




   


His Redemption--Protector/Redemption--Part 2--Reflection / Black Series------Black Series--The Unified Spirit Of AZ Rains--Wings--Roses Series----Reflection Series--A New Series Within Black Series

All He Is
She asks.
A Vision of Hope.
A lingering putrid smell
in her Heart
as she remembers a Time
where he once was
& she was no more.

Only.
He says this.
As if it must be
Truth.
As if
all he sees
are the scars that
cross his face
when he remembers
who I am.

You see
he knows me
not
from this Place.
In the mists
of
Memory.
But
from a Moment
so long ago
I refuse to see it
clearly.
To see me
when I can't
see him.

He knows me
aches
in my Soul.
Cramps
that refuse to
heal.
Heart beats
that refuse to surface.
If only
for a little while.

Then.
It is then
that I realize.
That I know
who I am.
That I see this
unexpected
reflection of me.
In a window.
In a Crystal
I wear near my Heart
that seems to beat
for it.
As if
on it's own
even my body
betrays me.
Refuses to function
without you near.

It's then I see.
The You
Reflected
In
Me.

My Only Way Home--Black Series

The Moon Light
struck his Soul just right.
The refection
blinding me to what
I can't see anyway.

The Street Lamps
they flicker
a reminder of when
you used to be.
When you were
only you.
When you
didn't carry me
with you
too.

The Creatures Above Us
do you hear them.
They call for you
their leader
mentor
friend.

The Stone Building
in front of us
always a sign
a road map
a beacon.
Leading us here
where you'll always
be.

Your Wings
wrapped around you
almost lucid
transform
you.
Those Symbols
of inequity
that wrap my mind
around
you.

Bring Me Here
once again
you say.
As if you think
it's me
&
not you
that brings us
here.
A warped sense
of
Time
&
what he does
to me
when I'm
with
you..


Oh
but you say.
It is
you.
The Guardians
that Save us
bring you here
to me.
Because they
know
it's the only way
I find myself
in this
Darkness.

Because
they know
you're my only
way
Home.
