Light Leaks by Samus-Merid
Written 6/21/2016 – Listening to Fractures – It’s Alright
I am a wanderer, a seeker, a searcher,
Thirsting for something I can almost taste,
Grasping at wind streams and shadows,
Barely capturing something ever more meaningful…just beyond my view.
I have been under the bright heat of the sun in my soul,
I have baked upon the endless fields of salt and sand,
Those fields that are the wandering thoughts that become a journey of discovery,
Where persistence has gifted me wisdom almost too precious to share.
It is a spring in the desert,
A gem in a sea of glass,
A simple unadorned cup in a warehouse of chalices,
A bright ember amid a torrential rain of fire.
I cannot hold back the flood that is this emotion,
I cannot hide this light that burns from my soul outward,
I cannot deny the power that is this truth,
My hardened heart has cracked trying to bury deep in doubt this precious knowledge that:

The Greatest Secret
Lets supposed,
Every night,
If you could have any dream you wanted,
And every night you would explore every lost desire.
You could, shape whole universes,
You could climb every mountain on Earth,
You could lie and watch a thousand seasons of blossoms,
You could love and be loved, for entire lifetimes.
Have you ever dreamed a dream so wonderful you were sad to wake up?
Have you ever dreamed a dream you were grateful to escape from?
If you had sampled all that life, fulfilled all those dreams,
What would you then desire?
Would you in the end, want something more suprising?
Would you desire a dream that wasn't so perfect?
Would you crave a surprise rather than control,
Would you seek the chaos over order and find a place beside it more fitting?
Would you then realize that the life we live is exactly what we would desire?
With all of the chaos, and heartbreak, and loss, and fear,
Mingled with astounding wonder and discovery and love and peace,
We just might realize that life is the greates

Veils of Worlds
Veils of Worlds
There is a dream,
There is a world,
Just beyond the veil,
Felt through music, seen just beyond the dark, heard so faintly.
It’s not an illusion,
It’s a fickle creature,
Impossible to grasp,
Yet unforgettable.
It walks the edge of my dreams between sleeping and waking,
It taps the cobblestones of places I know but have never been,
It sends riddles with no answers or return address,
It hides from my seeking but it never truly gone.

Subtlety
Subtlety
Glimpses of absolute power,
Captivate,
Me,
Absolutely.
A quick,
Powerful,
Glance of the eyes,
Shows more than you intended.
It shows,
Hope,
Need,
Desire.
A touch of the hands,
A warm gesture,
A message,
An invitation.
Hands were made for touching the world,
Eyes were made for seeing,
A tongue for tasting,
But I was made for you, to love you, to breathe you into my soul.
Vivid memories,
Last days in the wild,
But nothing compares, to being at peace, your warm embrace,
The pure joy of just sitting by yours side, and hearing tender whispers.
You are the color to my world,
The soft silk my senses desire,
The brand of perfume made just for me,
You are the love of my life.

Last Light Before The Flood
Last Light Before The Flood
There is a river,
A flood,
A power unstoppable,
And my will is a dam of ill placed sticks.
Resistance is futile,
Doom is near,
Fate is close grasping,
I am nearing my last stand.
In this moment,
There is both full darkness and a last light,
There is a flicker still believing,
A last outpost that is my hope.
Ancient spirits fly to me!
In my moment of most dire need!
Come save me from desire!
Come save myself from me!

Legacy
Legacy
I remember more every day,
Of your careful presence,
Through the growing moments,
Of the life I knew with you there.
As I have children of my own,
I see you in their faces,
I feel my own moments come upon me,
To leave a lasting memory to teach them forever.
Everywhere I go now,
I am surrounded by your love, your wisdom,
Its just like an angel that I cannot see or hear,
But I know with all my heart you are there.
The memories you bestowed upon me,
Flow through the veil and are magnified,
Your touch on my soul becomes your legacy to my children,
They feel you close even though in this life they never knew your embrace.
There are days where the emotions are too much to feel,
I will be in a regular moment, and find a longing to have you near,
To hear your voice, to hear your laugh, to see your smile,
To hear your stories from your mouth, to see you hold your grandchildren.
The tears that come unbidden are frequent and warm,
As the sadness I feel is a light sorrow,
Knowing that you a

The Storm
The Storm
There is a storm
Raging
Seething
Inside of me.
I am tossed amid
My own inner chaos
In moments, happy, peaceful,
In others on the threshold of screaming.
My voice would not be loud enough,
To express the turmoil
Below
And so it hides, like a wild beast, just on the edge of sight.
I need a gentle hand,
To so carefully declare,
Peace, Be Still,
To subside my whole world, and wash away to serenity again.

The Vault
The Vault by Samus Merid
Written 3/24/2015 listening to Shapeshifter – Summer Haze
The smallest dream of spring crossed my mind and left tiny little seeds,
Which slowly, carefully, took root, and started to grow into ideas,
An idea that nature was starting anew, and began to sponsor my own new season,
And the vault that has protected me from winters bite, began to crack, and let a little light in.
It’s a slow progression, this horse cart called change,
Impossible to carry, tiresome to pull, and far too quick and heavy upon one slip in control,
Gratitude is the correct response to maintain happiness after the change,
To embrace the new colors and breathe in the new is sometimes more than life itself.
In its creaking of human natures resistance to opening,
The vault turns from rationed measures, to a happy frolic,
The wind sows more seeds of ideas that will fruit into action,
And what once was a base of survival will be an outpost of exploration.
Oh how the heart dances in li

A Glimpse of Silver
A Glimpse of Silver by Samus-Merid
Written 7/28/2014
Tired eyes open reluctant,
From an even more exhausted body,
That seems trifling when compared,
To the battle ravaged heart, mind, and soul.
As eyes adjust,
There is something, very small,
A glimmer, a growing glimpse of silver,
In a moment of tender reality.
Words, ever so gently,
Carefully form across the walls and floor,
In a beautiful array of design and reaching,
As worn out hands are found in need.
And as silver streams to blue,
The hope is written from fingers to hands to arms,
And more so, inside to heal the broken memories,
To bring comfort to a heart that has mostly known sorrow and darkness.
As the last words,
Move infinitely more slowly,
Lifting a soul, long lost in the darkness of life’s choices,
To surround it in loving arms, to bring you home forever more.

Light Leaks by Samus-Merid
Written 6/21/2016 – Listening to Fractures – It’s Alright

I am a wanderer, a seeker, a searcher,
Thirsting for something I can almost taste,
Grasping at wind streams and shadows,
Barely capturing something ever more meaningful…just beyond my view.

I have been under the bright heat of the sun in my soul,
I have baked upon the endless fields of salt and sand,
Those fields that are the wandering thoughts that become a journey of discovery,
Where persistence has gifted me wisdom almost too precious to share.

It is a spring in the desert,
A gem in a sea of glass,
A simple unadorned cup in a warehouse of chalices,
A bright ember amid a torrential rain of fire.

I cannot hold back the flood that is this emotion,
I cannot hide this light that burns from my soul outward,
I cannot deny the power that is this truth,
My hardened heart has cracked trying to bury deep in doubt this precious knowledge that:

We are irrevocably connected, every single one,
From the smallest to the largest, you are loved and always have been,
You are part of a family that will continue forever,
Your destiny is a legacy, that started long before you took your first steps,
And will continue to grow in brightness long after you have taken your last.

This light, this fire, this emotion, this connection, this closeness, this bond,
Is open, is free, is available, is yearning, is reaching out for you to take part,
The only piece to this puzzle is if you will cast off the layers of bias and thick curtain of tradition,
And see each other and yourself as you truly are, and then choose to act likewise in kindness and love.

Let this light grow within you, think on it, ponder its value and feel it’s potency,
Seek ways to engage it, set it aflame in others and bring them from the shadows,
That shadow this world has taught us to hide behind, to limit how much we love, or care,
Taught us to hate, and kill and abuse each other , it has burred our vision that we are all the same family.

And as family I was destined to stand by your side,
And you were destined to stand by mine,
I was meant to dry your tears, and bind your wounds, and carry your burdens,
And you were meant to do the same, and together we could save each other.

And together, we could partake in the light of life, and love and kindness,
And know the joy that is family, and friendship, and hope of forgiveness,
And share the sadness of loss and ease the weight of hardship,
And lift one another until we cross the veil of this life together and sit down in rest and peace forever.

Lets supposed,
Every night,
If you could have any dream you wanted,
And every night you would explore every lost desire.

You could, shape whole universes,
You could climb every mountain on Earth,
You could lie and watch a thousand seasons of blossoms,
You could love and be loved, for entire lifetimes.

Have you ever dreamed a dream so wonderful you were sad to wake up?
Have you ever dreamed a dream you were grateful to escape from?
If you had sampled all that life, fulfilled all those dreams,
What would you then desire?

Would you in the end, want something more suprising?
Would you desire a dream that wasn't so perfect?
Would you crave a surprise rather than control,
Would you seek the chaos over order and find a place beside it more fitting?

Would you then realize that the life we live is exactly what we would desire?
With all of the chaos, and heartbreak, and loss, and fear,
Mingled with astounding wonder and discovery and love and peace,
We just might realize that life is the greatest journey we might ever know.

We may realize that the people around us just need to wake up to life,
That the power of the universe has always been right in front of you,
That your choice to face the day, capture the moment, open your heart, mind and soul,
Is the key to unlock the pathway you may have been blocking for yourself all along.

Life is not only a road to death,
It is a dance, and each step matters,
The joy is how we embrace the progress,
How we savor the moments, bitter and sweet.

The brightness of life is not the richness of your bank,
Or the size of your home,
Or the luxury brand name of the car you drive,
It is how we connect to those around us, and to wake up from the illusion.

Wake up, from the illusion told to us that quality of life is a destination,
Wake up from the lie that when we are 60 and well invested then we can be at peace,
Wake up from the propaganda that we need to fight all who think and feel and believe differently from ourselves,
Wake up from the poison that tells us we cannot or should not be entwined in eacho thers lives.

The beauty of life is in each other,
Together we can accomplish mighty wonders,
As one we can feel our purpose and existence as fundamental and exquisite,
It is our destiny before we were born to live and be alive, and have the purest joy.

A joy, purified as it is shared,
Not diminished, or tainted,
But magnified, intensified with each new person helping one another,
The greatest secret to life is not a secret at all, its the simple gift of your time and love and gentle consideration to love one another.
