re-edit of something I started on a darker day...

Beauty all around me
Flowers and their mothers
Like soul mates and lovers they grow side by side
Colors and warmth lay within my reach.....
But I’m an iceberg where nothing grows and nothing breathes
This ground I’ve paved so everyone leaves
And I don’t sleep
And I don’t eat
So I don’t have the energy to grieve
In this place of the darkest space
There are no stars there are no smiles
But if you look hard enough
You’ll find my scars stand trial
because underneath my skin
is where I hide all the treasures and sin
and I don’t even mean to do it
I’m like an involuntary chameleon,
I’m not afraid to do it,
I’m not ashamed to talk,
But I worry that the weight of speech
on this early dock
Will sink our ship
And land us both on rocks,
so for now my dear forgive me
if I don’t always shine the light
it’s just I’ve left a trail behind
 and I can’t always map it out right
it’s not that I don’t love you
I’ll come around, you’ll see,.
But for now I’m tired of the past
And in the present I am free
