herein

herein glows

the light from

corner to corner

brightness fading

colors drawn into night

here i find you

alone–

only in my sight.

speak to me as you will

with only a glance

i stare into the sky

hoping again

for my chance.

 

 

 

Eager Eyes

He saw her there alone, celestial and shining eternal.

In the light of a thousand people she stood in the thriving.

He quietly cried to himself accepting that he could never touch her.

The longing and the loneliness forever expanding across his vision he turned away from himself and his emotions.  Leaving, he heard the din of life softly fading behind him to a never ending sea.

He walked with his head down in the shadows. Footsteps leaving an unseen path of breadcrumbs for her on the cold pavement bathed in lamp and an evening rain.

Through the night he wondered aimlessly through the world waiting for a moment, a passing moment to a thought of her face shining down on him from her heaven. The faintest of smiles washed over him as warmth wrapped its fingers slowly around his body.

He closed his eyes and forgave her for leaving him to his thoughts.

Bliss.

If she only knew.

The breath of a whisper— rain tempering leaves—memories passed him by in storm.

He stood letting her fall over his hair, body, and finally down his clothes to his bones.

Soft echoes wafted over him as the perfume of cars went by.

A quiet peace.

Undisturbed by noise.

Only knowing warmth.

She had found him again.

ethics

The winds blowing over my soul

Took over my mind

Making me shiver to the ground

Beneath my feet

Rooted as trees in shoes

Holes at the toes

Dirt encrusted

Scream for release

From your power

Your eyes pulling me deeper into you

I haven’t felt so alive in years

As I look

A world of humor and amazement

A whirlwind of thought

Colors never seen unfold

The moon is shining in the sky

As is the sun in the dawn

I whisper with honesty

Into you

I will no longer

Be mistaken for dead
