Another Day Lost

Quietly I sit

Trees flutter green leaves

Air crawls slowly by

Thoughts stir in voids

Little else matters

Motivation gone flat stale

Memory picks places

Lost upon parchment maps

Images undeveloped fade

Lines connect has beens

Worry goes missing

Perfectly another day lost

Breeze

Twisting in the wind

Unfurled then wrapped

Sensation of breeze

Coursing through veins

Tethered with illusion

Free to remain

Happy to not know

Sudden snap focuses

Things are delightful

Ignorance is bliss

Riding the wind

Sensation of breeze

Coursing through veins

Dancing in Air

She dances through air


Like she’s unaware


Beauty and grace causalities


Time bows as she passes


Yet blissfully she knows not


Elegance in awkwardness

Stumble become pirouette

Hypnotic to distraction

Eyes refuse to leave

Her vision in motion

The void

The void calls

It takes your heart

Your thoughts circle

Feelings die, reaction lives

Shadows show you light

Books read by illiterate

Become hymns change d

Verses drift chorus away

Fading to white

We’re claiming purity

Deep inside were know

Void is anything

But clean

Hourglass

The pinch in the hourglass

My eyes live there

I have a model of perfection

It teases my last feeling

There’s a trap within all of us

We pretend it doesn’t matter

Fools believe I this is true

The taste of forbid fruit

It remains strong after we think

Issuing excuses for why

But never replacing the temptation

Someday I will taste that moment

I hang on the moment forever

My heart beats to get me by

My eyes live in the hourglass

Perchance

Can you make me forget?

I look to escape the day

Thoughts tease what could happen

Reality whispers what will never occur

Lines separate here and now

Fragile dreams dance upon breezes

My obsession clings to maybes

I ask again, can you make me forget?

Yesterday is a complex knot.

Things once held power crumple

Dreams lay upon the ground in pieces

Hopes nothing but ties that bind

Doubts flavor the air upon your breath

Wanting to be part wastes on the vine

I seek roads not to be traveled

Responses without form of measure

The moment golden in distant light

Things served negligence steeped with desire

Thrills within the hidden places of the heart

To bask in warmth of could be’s

The price of release far outweighs the cost


Your Smile

I selfishly hold on to your smile

I build rooms for memories

Each one a masterpiece

Each one a breath to cling

There’s a fear i’ll miss one

There’s a sense they may stop

Heartbeats pause at their sight

Possibilities dance in their light

Without them I wander aimlessly

Uncertain paths of emotions

Destitution of unknown feelings

Like dawn breaking, hope spills

Enlightenment in sharing

Priceless things, silly things

I await the next smile impatiently

Sunrise

Light silently slips from nights grip. Breezes sing songs of rustling leaves. Their chill fleeing the coming dawnSleep entrances rose tat would moveSenses sharpen images within dreamsThe body stirs within to announce the day

Serenity

My hands mold clay

The more it moves

The less it calms

Like distance breezes

Believing stirs tiny change

Calmness comes from inspiration

Exhaustion slows the mind

Acceptance is the dream

Inside we build fortresses

Perhaps one day it’ll come

Serenity seldom climbs walls

It is the clay we mold

The ball we smash

Over and over again

The Dream

I awoke changed

I knew my neighbor

My day was measured in events

Instant meant shortly

I waited for news

It didn’t always agree with me

People said hello

There wasn’t rude in your face

We talked to strangers

I didn’t label you for disagreeing

Open hostility was frowned upon

Children ran free range

No danger from unseen menace

It was called safe and free

It was my youth restored

Someday was flying cars

They never warned us of the past

Just promise of tomorrow

My how we changed
