Every poet inherently knows

Poetry- cannot just be taught

It must be felt- welled within

It’s infinite, beyond construct    

It operates by its own rules

Wild like an ocean fluidity

Poetry defines life in motion

It resists all conventionality

Depicts galaxies true origins

Birth of any star: pure poetry

Possessing no ego, nor body     

Yet, infusing its profoundness

Generates unfolded spectrums

Its authentic existence is… love

Necessities

There’s simply nothing anyone

Could’ve truly said to me

That I would’ve listened to

My heart never does- you know

All part of loves lessons

I seem to put myself through

God knows, I hate the pain and still

I must choose- to love my way

Another scar, another heartache

Like all other hearts, taking baby steps

I trust, one day, I feel it in my soul

I’ll run fearlessly alongside  

Like children laughing aloud

With a love that’s been… proven true

In motion

Various species of trees stand up

Like palisades to hide a lake life

On its outer rim in mixed bushes

Rooted well within a muddy soil

Death befell before life was lived

Only the stalks of immature trees

Serve as perches for birds in wait

Pierce through the watery surface

Where their thin shadows mirror

As a fog washes over their silence

Dining fish become a fowl’s lunch       

Everything outside a near distance

Appears was wholly swallowed up       

Until rebirth of the reining … sun

I see now, I’ve been mistaken

All this time I thought memoirs

Of our love played eloquently

In my mind when I felt lonely

That is not the truth borne out  

Foolishly I limited love- itself

Your love in fact, stays at play

It remains imbedded within me

Every full breath of its existence

That- that is what sustains me     

Giving my existence its purpose

Vivid touches imbuing my heart      

Your precious love in continuation

Lives in my soul for… reunification

Ripped  

Our song just skips now

Cause that record is broken

And that ever after is gone

Oh, I need me a long road

Going easy on my mind

Just as kind on my soul

Nowhere special is just fine

If it’s peaceful and quiet

A trip that’s long overdue

That I’ve promised myself

Where temperatures are cool

If a sun still sets in the west  

And my long shadows are true

When I stroll … on my own

Just kept

Seems funny I really don’t recall

The sun feeling so warm and bright

Oh baby, I gave it my all, and more

Waiting patiently for what I needed

But you kept dismissing- all of me

I held on to every piece of myself

You took away from my wholeness

While telling me to just get over it

Though you were taking all I gave

Open and free from my bleeding heart

But I kept promising daily to myself

Eventually everything would change

And I was right, cause baby today  

 I’ve gotten over everything…missing

Hearted warrior  

I can carry this weight

Of darkness and it’s secrets

Do what I really must do

All by myself, always have

Believing what I feel inside

Belong to someone else- you

.

If I find you

If I find you

And you find me too

.

I’ll part oceans that divide us

Long enough to escape here

Then let it close itself behind

When I’m finally on your side

 I’ve overcome the taste of fear

And the pain of all these scars  

.

If I find you

If I find you

And you find me too

.

I’m feeling cold clear to my bones

I’m so tired behind these eyes

I pretend it doesn’t bother me

I’ve felt you call for too long

But I won’t surrender yet

Not until I’m in your arms

.

When I find you

When I find you  

When I find…you’re my home

 Outliers  

The fashion of your alluring legs  

Wading within moon lit shallows

As tinged beams of luminous reflect

Off submissiveness of warm ripples

.

The way our morning after sunlight  

Basked in the beauty of your presence

Making its way over sleepy chasms

As I sit in awe of heavens creations  

.

That adorable manner we hold hands

While we gaze at wonderment of stars

As if they’re all chapters of our story

Whilst unabashedly delaying any finality

.

I waltz on the cusp of pure immortality    

Whenever I’m embraced … in your arms

Matter of fiat

I understood inhibitions young

And the need to secretly explore

I recognized moments of triumphs

Like a child witnessing a first dawn

Whisper its way over a mountain

In a splendor of climatic vivid colors   

I’ve felt the breath of excitement

Well within your eyes like no other

And in that moment, I pondered

Both, why not, and why me, now?

It was as chilling as was thundering

My heart raced for either of answers

But- the only common denominator

I could honestly deduce… was you

Park Benches

It was an ordinary day in humanity

I resigned nothing changes for me

.

I was walking besides nonchalant

When out of the blue came along

Pausing me momentarily in my life

To my right- sat this lonely bench

.

For some unknown reason to me then

I sat down to enjoy an easy breeze

Suddenly you sat on the other end

Then smiled- and we began conversing

.

And I’ve been found in you ever since     

Meeting you daily at that empty bench   

Looking forward to our stimulation

Of my mind- in living this revelation

.

Never once did I ever question, why

You serenaded me in tiny conversations

Bringing me, my only true liberation

From white noise chaos- I was living   

.

You rescued me in tiny gentle breezes

Like an angel uplifting my whole soul

Sooner or later in time, change arrives  

You must know- what it meant to me

.

Belief, I could trust in your every word

Where I could feel in your voice’s truth

Know, if we’re ever lost from each other

Forever, my heart will remember… you
