Sleeping without you,
the hollows of my heart ache,
yearning for comfort.
You Are My FireYou Are My Fire by Sammichu
You are a matchstick,
small, humble, powerful,
Sparking my curiosities,
igniting my interests, lighting my fiery passions.
You are a lantern,
smart, precise, valuable,
Glowing brighter than anything else,
bringing light to the deep, dark hallways of my heart.
You are a beacon,
bold, unique, resplendent,
Guiding me away from iniquity,
shine on me, my guardian, my protector.
You are a furnace,
strong, direct, competent,
Powering my ambitions and running
the engine of my body.
You are a hearth,
tender, modest, comforting,
Thinking of you warms my bones,
flushes out the bitter cold that lingers within me.
Fire rages, uncontrollably destroys everything
in its path, but not you.
You build and mend, dwell within my being.
You are my fire, my soulfire,
and without you, I would only be a
Sea of ThoughtsCreativity ebbs at the edge of your world.Sea of Thoughts by Sammichu
Walk close to the shallows, let the water lap at your feet.
Slowly walk in; the water flows about your ankles.
With each step you feel more and more alive.
Watch carefully for the dark, unpleasant pits. Steer clear of
the stinging sea creatures.
The water is waist deep; crystal smooth and clear as ice.
The walking becomes difficult, the waves overwhelming.
Swim now, for the further you go, the better it gets.
Leave everything behind, swim further and further out.
Dip your head under the surf, observe the life below.
Watch the way the creatures and plants all flow
together, create perfect rhythm.
The water is whatever you want it to be, a perfect reality.
But it is dangerous to swim for long. The water draws you in,
steals your energy, grabs at your body, taking it for its own.
Sinking beneath the waves, the water becomes lead.
It weighs you down, pulls you down,
drowns you in the Sea of Thoughts.
