Seuil


I stood there looking foolish

to maybe, only- me

while the rest of the world

went about playing the living

As you walked away in my silence

my heart was breaking inside

until the deafening sound

tore my soul- inside out

 

Beneath the sun and stars

snowflakes and the drizzling rain

we laid, engulfed in each others arms

All those dreams we spoke about

became dark thunders clouds

in all my tomorrow days

And I will barely survive them all

to prove I’m willing to endure for love

whatever it may take, as my proof

 

I- couldn’t have loved anyone

but you- that’s just my truth

And I know what it means now

that you’ve really moved on

Taking the sun and leaving me in fog

I’ll remain lost- in time and space

between the silence and yesterdays

Standing foolishly, just waiting…for you

Too mortal

I’ve been lost and found, or so I thought

and life seemed happy in but, moments

Even the sun boasted with pure colorful joy

Rain was soothing on our bare skin, at night

but before I woke, you up and went- away

leaving me behind, lost, in a discarded shade

as if, I was just another kiss, untold by you

Now- every step feeling like a crumbling floor

I easily lost you and myself back in November

but when the month changed to May

I never even noticed- the change of days

Oh! I can still feel the crisp morning mist

that was left chilling like ghost on my lips

when reality alerted my sobering awareness

as rain drops fall more like snowflakes now

masking footprints where I alone walk on

and the sun secretly cries behind veils of gray

while I peregrinate this silent beach in memories

Knowing now- there isn’t enough ocean waves

that could ever wash you away from…my heart

Celestial

I miss the whispers of the whorl

that wrapped around me

insulating from nothingness

taking and giving everything at once

Akin the hum of an electric current

that pulsated generously life songs

Oh, how so numb and deaf I feel this day

so lost amongst all time and space

She was that caressing enigma

that magical wand the universe waved

and at times weaved into my heart

piercing every beat in motion

with tethering fabric of her own essence

knotting our wantoning reverberations

as I- breathlessly and ineffably… felt loved

Derecho

Even an arid desert can weep

while laying alone beneath

the shade of a cold dark night

between shivers and lip quivers

while still longing for the dream

in living prismatic color schemes

that proffer’s a rainstorm…lover

Inexplicable

I really can’t explain

what my heart needs- in words

when feelings feel things

far deeper than a desire

I often start but fall in silence

as the ache within suffers

Some feelings lack understanding

and a way to depict their pictures

But darling, you reflect the face

of being their only answer

If you don’t love me, I’ll understand

but if you could, at least stick around

so I can point to you, if I’m asked

I know I must seem to complicated

for those fluent in loves language

but none of this comes as easy- for me

O’ how much plainer can I say it

for love to be my full filled dream?

Only my heart…knows what it needs

Symphonious

Like a gurgling brook meanders mindlessly

and wild Jasmine intoxicates far and wide

I’ve long felt for that one bucolic meadow

where painters can taste heaven, in the air

and it’s soothing sound is found in colors

that change in constant flow of a marbled sky

and we- create memories of our naked picnics

drenched in wine, laughter and living…love
