One Step

Posted in Uncategorized on October 18, 2006 by organicsauce

One step closer to the door
Don’t look back
Just one step more
Holding in breath
and barely holding on
Headed in the right direction
To that dream seen
as if by someone else’s eyes.
Seeking something
Familiar
Hand on the knob
and a gentle twist
Door opens to bright sunlight
Warm glow of the unknown
Can’t stop now
Not again

Her Angel (part 1)

Posted in Uncategorized on October 17, 2006 by organicsauce

The crackle of the fire fills the night
as another log turns to dust.
Sparks fly out, escaping from the inferno.
She holds her knees to her chest
and prays for the first time.
Her angel sits on the other side of the pit
and watches her, listens to her crying.
With a shaking voice, barely audible
she begs for the change to take place
and to be free from this thing.
Her angel rises, waiting for the permission
he hoped would be granted.
Rain starts to fall, making the fire hiss.
The girl gives a shudder and raises her head.
The tears touched by cold rain.
Through the smoke she sees her angel
and she smiles.
Everything was going to be alright
for the first time in her life.
