in a drop of rain was a key
that opened the floodgates
of thoughts i would rather
not have, but indeed i must

of too much time spent
weaving the tapestries
that decorate the walls
of my heart

Too aware in the silence
so deep and so dark
that it makes my heart fear
what i may see
if i let the lights burn

it's been a long long time
since the midnite oil
burned enough...
enough to light the way
some lessons
are so hard to learn

but there is an ember
that smoulders still
a cradled flame that has yet
to bridge the space between
what is mist
and what is peace

I try not to let them see
that this purported wisdom
is nothing more than a shadow
of an invisible facade
the most transparent of masks
so strong it seems
yet fragile as a smile
a paper tiger in the wind

I kept wondering why that frisbee kept getting bigger and bigger....and then it hit me.
