I am

I am the wild
Fragmented shards of broken glass

magnetically recomposed

I am the free

Unexpected outpouring of

expression

passion

showing my most inner self

I am human

Tears of the purest joy

droplets of pain

gather

in a collective muddled river that twists and winds

meandering through life

basking in and absorbing

the rays of the morning sun
feeding, swirling

becoming a homogeneous mixture

I am the healer
Wade in my healing waters

find comfort and solace

as you snuggle

enraptured in my wings

radiating love and strength

So that you may take flight

once again

As I have

 Why is it that so many of the souls I am so very blessed to come into contact with on a daily basis seem to lack belief in themselves? Yes my beloved Grueheads I am speaking to you. I may come across as Scarlet Genesis, companion of Keeper of the Crimson Quill, oozing confidence from every pore all day, all night, and a natural-born leader, but let me assure you this is not always the case. I love y’all too damned much to ever tell any lies. I scribe brutally honestly and unapologetically, I feel it only fair to warn you that true to mirroring life, things aren’t always as they appear. Surprised? I thought not.

Pom poms hurling toward the sky

Never let them see you cry

Pause so slightly, wonder why

All your dreams forsaken

Invisible_by_BidWiya

 Sideline cheers, inducing fears

Eternal waits, a thousand years

Wheels in motion, grinding gears

All your love’s been taken

black_zodiac__the_bound_woman_by_astrozerk04-d318w9w Died this death a thousand times

Within the confines of the mind

Expectations no different this time

A soulless shell, forgotten

zombie_cheerleader_idea_by_steevinlove-d2ym0jc Numbing til the pain subsides

Smiles provide a place to hide

Easier to give up than try

 Silent, Screaming, Retreating

padded_cell_by_mr_book_faced-d5ffglq  Hope appears too distant

And all is far but well

Climb inside the shell to hide

 My very own private hell

I feel so peaceful at this exact moment in time. I’ve just devoured our favorite meal, London broil, marinated with a zesty peppercorn sauce and cooked to utter perfection.  Surrounded by a sense of fulfillment as I slowly become one with my recliner, I am briefly startled by the chime of the clock.  Lost for but for a solitary second, my grin widens with the realization that this juncture has come, yet again.  That magical hour which breaks up the monotony and allows my soul to simply, breathe.  We all have our own personal little escapes from life now and again, don’t we?

As I mentally run down my to-do list in preparation, I am meticulous in my planning.  Everything down to the most minute of details, must be absolutely perfect, so that I may receive maximum enjoyment.

behind_the_mask_by_little_one_girl-d63g5ob

Those searching for facts
concealed in my fiction
don’t get me

Those basing attacks
on my predilection
don’t get me

Those willing to jump
to unfounded conclusions
don’t get me

Those making light
of my painful contusions
don’t get me

Behind_The_Mask_by_juancarlomaala

Those who think they have me
all figured out
just upset me

It’s easy to come to
assumptions without
having met me

I’ll help you to strive
for the goals you perceive
if you’ll let me

Once you learn to thrive
and begin to believe
then you get me
