Lighthouses don't go running all over islands looking for boats to save. They just stand there. Shining.

    Unabsolved

    Sometimes it is kinder
    Rather than to provide absolution
    To deprive a wrongdoer of such
    Not in spite, not in rage,
    But rather, as a gift;
    That by refraining to cleanse and wash away their ills
    That they instead must retain them
    Look inside
    And use it as an opportunity to reflect
    Develop and grow,
    And maybe, just maybe,
    Even start to heal themselves,
    Through your act of "non-forgiveness"...

    Page, Pen & Sky

    Back to my sky as a page,
    And a page as my sky.
    For what seems as many days as there are stars
    Both escaped my mind's eye.

    Why did I turn my head down?
    I've answers none but words many.
    Why did I stop ink leaking, and sky-seeking?
    Too much of none, and too little of any.

    Seasons of torrents have since passed,
    Ink caught none, nib rendered dry.
    Supply plenty, yet page and mind empty.
    Time to rouse once again:
    My page... my pen...
    Above all, reunite myself with the sky.

    Change

    We resist change, yet are surrounded by it...

    Every star in the sky is showing us the very nature of change; what each star has become, not by chance but rather only through every moment it had to endure, outlive, outlast, even the parts it has to allow to fall away from it, for their light to even reach us.

    We resist change, yet are surrounded by it...

    Closer

    Whoever would have thought so much closeness could be borne from an abundance of space?

    Who knew..?

    The most fulfilling love is that which we do not fear falling away,
    That we treasure, but refrain from treating it like it is ours to keep.
    Formed by never believing someone belongs to us,
    And always cherishing a moment for what it is, just that, a moment...

    Magician's Trick

    Watch me bluff for as long as I can
    That I don't feel a thing.
    But... Are you watching closely?
    For just like magic... there'll be a quick flip...
    Slight of hand and heart...
    A beat will skip.
    Then out of thin air, just like that,
    Into love I'll majestically slip.

    Human

    /ˈhjuːmən/ (noun)

    "An entity that can experience a
    deeply overwhelming response to realising
    It wants to mean nothing to another (out of fear)
    And everything to another (out of faith)
    At the same time..."

    Lightning Bolts

    They say "lightning bolts never strike the same place twice".
    This is pure myth.
    They can strike one place upward of twice,
    And very often do!

    They say "people don't deserve second chances",
    But this is also a myth.
    For they're not the same person, and do deserve that second chance,
    And quite often, you aren't either, and similarly deserve a second chance, too...

    Difference & Sameness

    We can exist in different places,
    Even be living in different times,
    And yet still enjoy same sunsets...
