Literature
Carcass
How much flesh can you see?
Before they all look like sacks of meat?
A body, a carcass
Flesh, bone and blood
No one saves their body for the ones that they love
Thick with lust
But lost to trust
The flesh cries out
An attention-getting plea
Every inch for the world to see
With shame, like cancer
Eyes down-cast
Let's all treat our bodies
Like a carcass
Just a body
For you to see
Nothing sacred
Nothing deep
Nothing preserved
Nothing pure
"Eyes only for you"
Is a phrase mostly obscure
Close your eyes
To the flesh that can disguise
What really lies deep inside
How many bodies can you lust?
Before there's nothing left to trust?
A body, a temple
Burnt to the ground
Stripped of exclusivity, no worshipers to be found
Thick with burning
But dead to yearning
The soul cries out
Begging to be seen
But smothered within by the flesh, the meat
With shame, like cancer
Does love ever last?
Let's all just treat our bodies
Like a carcass
Just a body
For you to see
Nothing sacred
Nothing deep
Nothing pres

Literature
If Only
When I think of all the times our paths crossed
I try not to view them as moments I've lost
When I think of how close and yet how far away
We've always been to that special day
I marvel at the miracle of life and its ways
The paths we took and the prayers I prayed
I look back in memories and see your face
If I'd only known the time I'd waste
I'd have stopped right then
Given you my heart
Put myself in your arms and never part
I'd have loved you sooner had I but known
I'd have stopped the lonely....
Oh, if only
If only
I hadn't wasted so much time being lonely
If only I'd known that you sat all alone
In your corner of life
Not too far from mine
Feeling the same things I felt
Thinking I'd die by myself
If only I'd known we'd meet
That you'd make my life complete
If only
When I think of all the countries, cities and towns
What a miracle it is, by you to be found
How close we have been, yet that all could have changed
By one moment, one decision, one single day
I stand amazed at the guidin

Literature
These Days
Newlyweds with starry eyes
Whose love is new, filled with surprise
Each new day holds mystery
With no thought of what tomorrow brings
They say "I'll hold your hand and you'll hold mine"
Together forever 'til the end of time
Undeterred by tragedy
Pain, strife, and disease
Life knocked them to their knees
But never once did their love leave
Love is free, love is blind
Love is patient, love is kind
Love you can feel inside a gaze
A gaze in which beauty never fades
The kind of love we need
The kind of love God made
Well you don't see much of love like that
These days
Thoroughly weds with comfortable eyes
Whose love is strong, tho it's been tried
Each new day holds familiar routines
With the comfort of knowing what tomorrow brings
They say "You'll hold my heart and I'll hold yours"
As they love each other more and more
Undeterred by tragedy
Pain, strife, and disease
Life knocked them to their knees
But never once did their love leave
Love is free, love is blind
Love is patient, love is kind

Someday Is Not a Day of the Week

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 19, 2011, 12:13 PM
But it's starting to feel like it.  

So many things in my life are coming.  Someday.  So many ideas will be manifested.  Someday.  So many dreams will be achieved.  Someday.  I understand the art of procrastination, especially when it is related to things we don't want to do.  But I seem to be a part of quite a bit of unwilling procrastination these days.  It's not that I don't want to do these things, it's that I simply can't find the time.  I can't even make the time.  There is no extra time to be had, or to be created.  I suppose I've been through this before.  It's like the filling of a bucket.  I will get so full of ideas, of creativity and things that I would like to do and achieve.  Once it is nearly brimming, I simply MUST empty at least a portion of it.  It always works out.  I believe it to be divine intervention.  Just when I'm at my highest level of frustration and my creative ideas are near to spilling over... time opens up itself.  Worries seem to melt away, work seems to flow smoothly, and all the pieces seem to fall into place.  I find no other explanation than that God senses my absolute need to follow in His footsteps and create.  :heart:  He sees the novels written on my heart, the songs entwined within my soul, and the photos and drawings that dance at my fingertips.  And He recognizes the imparted desire to create... things of beauty, things of mystery.  

So perhaps what I am experiencing right now is not involuntary procrastination, but rather... the learning of patience.  The lesson that often those things we must wait for are the most pleasant, the most satisfying, and the most enjoyable once we finally attain them.  

When I finally do write that novel that has been forming in my head (one of many) for years, it will be the right time.  It will be the right moment, and it will come to fruition when it is meant to.  When I finally take those photos that have been dancing around behind my eyelids at night, they will be even more than I had imagined them to be.  When the melody flows from me for the songs that I ceaselessly write, it will be the melody of the soul, and I will know that is what it was always meant to be.  :)  These thoughts are much more disjointed than I had intended them to be.  Stealing a moment at work to try to convey my deepest frustrations and thoughts, especially regarding creativity (which is something so dear to me) is difficult.  But, I am tired of being repressed by the timely constraints of everyday life.  I am a rebel to conformity and I refuse to lose who I am in the hustle and bustle of reality.  

In a sense, I am merely writing this to remind myself of the times I've felt this way before and how I've always clawed my way out of them and created art that I am quite proud of.  This is only refining all my ideas, and will make it better when they do come to pass.  Now, if only I had pom-poms I'd be like my own little cheerleader.  :D  

The thing I am most impatient for, and yet feel is most worth the wait, is to become Mrs. Jason Burch.  :love:  Even typing it gives me shivers of pleasure!  What feels like my entire life, I've been waiting for love to come along.  (And I say "what feels like my entire life" because, let's face it... I'm pretty sure I wasn't 2 months old and wondering where Mister Right was.... lol) Waiting for the day when I could trade in my last name for the last name of the man who is all my hopes, dreams, and desires wrapped in one.  Soon.  :)  Soon, that day will be a reality and after so many years of praying, I now understand why it took God so long to bring me my True.  Perfection takes a long time to find.  :heart:  

So many new adventures await me.  Await us.  So many days of creating, loving, and enjoying.  I feel it underneath the surface.  I feel the greatness and the wonder bubbling in my soul, and it will manifest itself in great ways.  I have to believe this.  I do believe this.  Everything I am, everything I have is grounded in faith - and I have faith that someday... (there's that word again) I will create things that will darkle in the eyes of those who see it, branding a vision into their minds.  And I hope that from that will stem their own vision, their own creativity.  Because as the wonderful Maya Angelou says, "You can't use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have."  

This is why I still come to DeviantArt.  This is why I admire and challenge myself by viewing the art of others.  You ALL inspire me and motivate me to do more, and be better.  Some of you make me jealous, but it's all good.  ;)  So until someday.... keep creating!

P.S.  I'm also quite excited about changing my eating habits and having lost 10 1/2lbs!  :excited:  Being healthy is much more important to me than it once was.  And for that I'm thankful.
