Passing of Time

Lingering the day
Hidden behind closed doors
Locked out from the bitterness
Of a cruel, bent world
Round they say it is
Circling the encompassing warmth
Growth from within
It spurts new branches
Trees of life
Unorganically known
Spreading through the valleys
To the depths of the ocean
Shadows of the present
Succumb to adventures
Meaning is lost
Indifference rendered
Walk forth among the commonality
Safely tucked in knowledge
That this too shall pass
Creating new fondness
Ridges in the crease
With each door that opens
Another shall cease

Forever and a Day

Forever and a Day
I thought I would be with you
In this sea of love, captivating
You were everything I should not have
Strong and distant, mentally unstable, as I
The bond between us of a unique kind
Your lips to mine, in the street,
Stirring heartfelt emotions fathomed
Uncontrolled, consistent smile as I walk away,
You stayed with me, long after we were parted
There in my mind, my heart and emotions
Excitement built, where repetition lay
The constant of my daily existence
Love abound, so deeply felt
Hard to remember each moment may be our last
I would have held you longer,
Should I have known?
I would be holding you now
As I would not have let go
Alas, the future was untold
And opportunity has passed,
The strings no longer pulling me back
Stubbornness streak has set in
Choosing to let love stand
In the memory box, tucked away in my heart
Comparable you will be for the present
Each new person, shall have great expectations to meet
Unfairly you have set the standards high
And I remind myself daily, that our time has gone by
The void I must fill, it is only temporary
Each day will be easier, each moment more tolerable
Soon I will laugh; soon you will be a distant memory
In place of the constant void of this unscripted life
I miss you.

The water runs
I fear to step in
To wash away
The touch of your lingering desire
Forever unbathed
To keep you with me
And once I have been cleansed
And you have been drained
Far away
I beg you return,
To once again shower me
With your kisses
To remain with me
Time and again

Blank Pages

Blank is the sheet in front of you
Blank is the mind of which
To place thought into motion
Filling the lines
With nonsensical verbiage
To be moved forward
With unpredictable autism
The need to fill space
To fill mind, body and soul
To fill pages
With the timeline of life
Inevitably to be nonexistent
Those words, those memories
Dissipate along with you
Blank pages replaced
Blank pages continued
By the ones who precede you,
Succeed you
May the words never fail
May the blank pages unfold

Blissfully Unaware

Deep in the shadows
The cracks
and holes
Lies the secrets
Of every sorrowful

Enclosed by mothers blessings
You are oblivious
To your surroundings
The darkness leering at your feet
Head turned up
To the cloudless sky

Watching the wonders
Of the world going by
Distant and obscure
To the significance of
The cockroaches scurry
Baring no armes
Unprotected by faith alone

Life grasps the opportunity
To swoon you in it arms
Guided along
Through the flower fields
And mountain top views
Blissfully fulfilled
In moments of destruction
Where your smile stands
The shadows exist among you

Lioness and Her King

She mounts the King
A ravishing Lioness
Strong, and beautiful
She secures him down
Beneath her
To claim her King
And all his worldly kingdoms
Dominating the hierarchy
He be-comes within her
Losing himself
For one moment in time
They forget all transgressions
For one moment,
They simultaneously feel,
They, too, can be tamed

Mockery of Love

You are mine, he says with giddy delight.

She replies, but that can not be! You see that woman, the one by your side from the years of time past? She claims stake of your heart, rumor has it she says it is hers!

Mistaken you are! I am a free and single man. No one marks my fate, but I!

But if you call me yours, and I call you mine, you would not be free, alas, I would suppose to capture your heart and your eyes to see none other but my own! What then, would you not be in despair, no longer free to venture?

Ah, yes! This women of whom you previously spoke, she has made the same inclination! Many times over, moon, sun and earth, no sense does it make! For what is yours is mine and what is mine is mine. I give no keep sake!

Well, then, I really must be going, as I know this dreary road! Thank you for your lesson, I think there has been a terrible mistake…

Don’t go! How heartless of you! To just walk away, after I profess my love, after so much time! No shame, have you woman? I said! I love you! You are mine! Is it possible you are that cold?

Me? I am cold? No, I dare say, not! I am love, pure and good, intentions only of sweet. But I claim one man, and he must in return claim only one woman-me!

Oh! Well, you are mistaken, as I claim only one! There is only you and me!

But what of the other(s)? Are they now gone?

Oh, yes! They are my present history, you, my dear lady are my future! The universe has aligned and brought us together! Mark my word I am the best at all that I do, and loving you will be among them!

Well, what flattery you bring, kind sir! However, I will require time, your time and attention, not gifts and adornments in the secret of night…. What say you to that?

How dare you profess that I commit so much! You ask me to guide you in the streets for all to see, parading you around as an ornament to my single life! I can not have this, and you must accept this!

Ah, but I can not; I must be going, to find a new path. The universe has misled us and our paths should not have crossed, I fear the universe cruel to have guided me to you, leaving me in self-doubt, as thus far I have believed your lies…

There are no errors in the skies! The Gods have brought you to me, and we shall be together! And spare me tales of lies spoken, I merely tell you what you like! It is for you in mind, to protect you!

And what say her, the one who claims your heart? Does she know you love another?

Well, she is a constant and will always be there, you must understand!? She will be the one to walk by my side, and you will be the one to comfort me. She need not know, I would not want to hurt her!

Oh! How daring you are! The audacity to assume this is acceptable! The delight of which you find in the trivial pursuit of your own selfish gain! I believe you to be ill!

Ah, but I am man. I am success. I get what I want, when I say. Come now, let’s go, hold me for a bit, then leave me to my own devices and return to me in three days time.

That’s it then? I just accept this small portion of which you offer? I am obliged to be obedient and nurturing to your needs, and place my own aside?

Ah, my love, you understand now! How great it is to know that you are not as ignorant as at once I thought! Come now, lets go, this talking is so tiresome, come and hold me dear love, time is running short.

May I make one request, one that you must honor?

So long as no engagements, weddings, or announcements are made, I will grant you one!
That is how much I love you!

I must hear from her, this other woman, and her blessings of our being together. Have her call me, and once she does, if all is well, I will come to you straight away. If you have been deceiving, well then, it was good knowing you, kind sir.


Anxious for the return of love.
