Star Ka'at's Ramblings

{August 31, 2011}   In Ages Past

Standing on the brink
In ages past
Crumbling the edge
In ages past

Wind whipping on the brink
In ages past
Pulling me to the edge
In ages past

Arms widespread above the brink
In ages past
Bold and unafraid of the edge
In ages past


{August 30, 2011}   Without You

Beautiful evening
Friends, movie, dinner
Raw fish delicacy

Deep blue sea
Bright city lights
Muted forest sunlight

Where is home
True home of peace and safety
Without you?

{August 29, 2011}   Diving Into Bed And Life

Can I do this
Can I grow
Can I expand these empty pages

How lonely up here
This tiny loft
The empty spaces of poverty

But wait, there is joy
In the mundane and simple
In the little brother jumping on the bed

{August 28, 2011}   New Lines

New lines
New paths
Different walks

Other words
Other worlds
Different lives

Old dreams
Old hopes
Different futures

{August 27, 2011}   Cherished? The Old

The old and weak
Who are we to ignore
Is it not our place
To love and care

Human as we
Young, sharp, vibrant
Inside to our outside
Please, love and care

{August 25, 2011}   Lose

Open your eyes
Open your love
Lose yourself
For greater good?

{August 24, 2011}   Tears, Home Again

Sadness for one
Delight for another
Empathy and pleasure

Upset for you
Happy for me
You’re home again!

{August 23, 2011}   My Hurts and Fears

Wanting to grow
To achieve my aspired
Uncertain and afraid
Of failing and shaming

Wear my shoes
Bear my life
Before you accuse
Before you curtly dismiss

Maybe my hurts
Would destroy you
Perhaps you would laugh
But they are only mine to bear

{August 22, 2011}   Pill Popping Pain

A window
A wish
Stabbing pain
Blinding dreams

{August 20, 2011}   Pain

Take this pain
Make it worse
Take the gain
Little lost souls

Bear me up
Unable to stand
Bear me away
Unable to cry
