It can be absolutely terrifying 
To swiftly fall for someone new
Only to realize abruptly later 
You’ve simply fallen through
And you’re still falling … all alone

Like those meandering cold raindrops
Streaking to gravity on the outer glass
Beneath a sky lost and muted of color
That too often I perplexingly stare at  
I place my hand- against the inner pane 
And as hard as I try deep in my heart 
I can’t feel your warm presence anymore 
But God truly knows … I- I can feel the rain

Beneath the pall and upon royal breathes 
Tantalizingly it lives seemingly unseen 
Yet its slightest weight can be felt within 
Clear to the core of their hollow marrow 
By those who crave its whet wicked taste 
Justifying every stolen drop slurped
Before slaying the rebel voices of … truth

I know there were times I hurt you
With little things I said and done
Wandering in my immature actions
But it really wasn’t- my intensions
I was only playing, and having fun
Never realizing the hurt I was causing
Someone I claimed to forever love
A broken promise of words in the works
Oh, my deeds were running too deep
And fracturing all that I ever loved 
Making me a keen poet of your heartaches
I never saw- breaking into tiny crevasses
Failure to plan, is a simple plan that fails
And I failed you unknowingly from the get go 
But baby, baby I know there were times
When your hearts joy caused tears to run
Down your face toward your captivating smile
And you’d pull me close with a tight hug
Loving on me like a heavenly micro-storm
Oh baby! You were showing me your love
Making me feel like- I was your only sun
Wrapped up inside your hearts universe
Safe and content while being just plain dumb
Oh baby! How I miss those times now
More than anyone could ever understand
And most times in my nightly fantasies
I can hear your voice, softly whispering
My name in a way- that only you can 
And I wait evermore to feel your touch
Cry a little drop of your rain on me again
Light me up once more with your love
Like no one has ever done, before or since
Gasping I open my eyes cause I can’t breathe
Only to wake and discover, baby it was only me
Chasing after wisps of you in my memory
Realizing I’m beset in luminous of … poetic agony

With a sprightly heart and childish beats 
I understand attraction and rejection 
Having known both side all too well
But now, I’ve reached my conclusion 
You have far too many conditions
For us to experience love- as love 
In many of microseconds left unshared 
Where love triumphs lustful ignorance
And elucidates where life has failed   
You seem to prefer a known outcome 
Without tasting the nuances of romance
It seems you’re really after … a victim

The highlight of our evenings separated
As we mingle amongst mere strangers
You- over there, and me, randomly here
Briefly, from across the way- you glance
Just long enough to mouth “I love you”
The weakness of my tears desperately cling
To the witnessing conclusion of my own reality
I, a mere mortal partakes in a blessing of divinity
Experiencing how love truly talks to…love

1985- my whole universe would shift 
The better half of July was spent 
But the best was still on the cusp 
A miracle, so profoundly fragile 
I could feel the joyous cosmos erupt
Beyond even those last bit of stars  
As I held you cradled within my arms 
I discovered; you were more than my daughter
You were factually… the soul of my heart

Somewhere between midnight madness
And heralding of dawns dreary truth
Beneath those Pink phlox like- moonlights
And lost cloak of overtired pretensions
I’m plagued by- my true vulnerabilities
Wishing you were there to veil me again
From the world, In everything … you

We were strangers when we met
That felt comfortable- at last 
Caught up in desires visionary tale 
And the more we got to know and hold
Each other in those burning moments 
So hard to find in a growing cold world
Out and away from the world at large
Where only you and I- seem to exist  
Living off loves begotten exotic tastes’ 
And falling deeper into one another
Like twin rainbows across the skyline 
Beneath a heavenly rain shower of blisses 
But all good things come to an end 
When- the illusion simply dissipates
And all the colors drain away  
As the cold face of reality changes
Sweetness into a true bitter tragedy
It was a snowy day I’ll remember forever
We remained strangers- when we left
Each other’s broken self far, far behind
Reminiscing- if only, if only… we were right

Like a stalled slow-motion moment
Far too many times, as of late
I find, myself feeling missing 
Inside, the silence of my mind
Where you- used to reside 
Like the sun and the moon
No matter the time, it was right
You were the chaos I needed 
To feel love, to feel alive 
Has this moment ended yet?
To be honest, I just cannot… tell
