I Howl At The Moon

Standard

fenrir eating the moon
I howl at the moon and I’m howling at you
I’m wearing the rain and I’m wrapped up in night
Oh I’m singing for stars that are hiding their light
I’m keeping it down and I’m seeing it through

I’m wielding a flame that is flickering white
Burning me deep, every breath is a bite
Feel the heat through miles, I know you do
A need, like a notion, a blue-black devotion so true

I won’t need to tell you, you already knew
I howl at the moon and I’m howling at you

I dig in the dirt and I’m digging for you
Prying under the stones ’til I’m covered in moss
Oh I’m singing to creatures that are born at a loss
I’m keeping it down and I’m seeing it through

I‘m lost in a crystal that glows with each thought
Dazzling me, every movement a fight
Feel the depths that I’m stuck in, I know you do
Taking root, lost to motion,  muddy devotion, like glue

I won’t need to tell you, you already knew
I dig in the dirt and I’m digging for you

I reach for the stars and I’m reaching for you
I’m holding the void and I’m coated in rust
I’m growling for lost bloom and holding my lust
I’m keeping it down and I’m seeing it through

I’m dowsing for water that is gossamer blue
Washing me clean, every drop is my truth
Feel like drowning again, I know you do
A drop like an ocean, a sea green devotion so true

I won’t need to tell you, you already knew
I reach for the stars and I’m reaching for you

I danced in the flames and I’m dancing from you
I’m burning alive and I’m crowned in the bright
Oh I’m singeing my feathers but not giving up flight
I’m keeping it down and I’m seeing it through

I’m clutching an ember that will not go out
And I am transforming, each cell, every bone
Feel the heat through miles, I know you do
Releasing a note,  piercing clearly and true

I won’t need to tell you, you already knew
I danced in the flames and I’m dancing from you

In the middle of the most excruciating heartache, hope sometimes shows up unexpectedly.
The pain will come roaring back and when it does, despair may try to drag you deep under the murky waters.
But even at its most fleeting, it’s hard to forget that glimmer of hope in the darkness.
It may not be a lifeline but it may serve as a compass.
You’ll know which direction you’ll want to swim in when you’re ready to surface and breathe again.

The Balance To Grief (Musings of a Lonely Siren 07/2011)

Standard

1722003

So grief cannot haunt you
If you wear joy on your sleeve
Sorrow silver as a moonbeam
Your smile a pocket of relief

A damper for the color or
The voice a notch too loud
Your laugh a beam of light
Around the edges of my cloud

Even in the still of sadness
The bright wonder revels
For one cannot appreciate one less
The other in contrast spills

Across the page of life birth and growth and cost
Make each a bit more precious so nothing is truly lost

Your laugh forever dances in the reaches of my mind
And the missing of it tugs upon my heart all through my time

Even as I let you go
I hold you tightly still
You’ll weave among my dreams and so
You will be immortal
