Gaze

 

 

To the sensual night I gaze

Diamond spark betray the dark

Awaken this heart with fiery blaze

 

No thoughts betray nor arise

Timeless soul in grace unfolds

Beyond all truth or earthly lies

 

To the sensual night I gaze

Diamond spark betray the dark

Awaken this heart with fiery blaze

Coffee Shop

cozy-coffee-shop-interior-design-7

My eyes close, the sweet scent playfully teases

Freshly baked, soft and fragrant

Vanilla I think, with just a hint of cinnamon

 

The strong coffee is warm in my hand

Sitting alone, the magazine lies open

More a way to avoid the occasional stares

 

Music, aromas, mixed conversations, just one perfect moment

 

 

Heart-Fall

 

 

I say some words, already regretting the sounds

My heart rises, guarded, at the chance of a smile

Boredom and irritation are the reply

Barely hidden in absent glances of disinterest

 

I know the words were not heard

The response automatic, disconnected

Intention doesn’t make it any easier

Or make the heart-fall ache any less

 

So many other places I could be

But my heart is tied to this time and place

Her screens soft light shows her distant smile

So I smile sadly and stay a little while longer

 

 

Between

 

 

Between where I am and where I wish to be


Is the measure of all stress


Between what I have and what I want


Is just a reason to impress

 

Between who I am and yet strive to be


Is the measure of this lie


Between what has been and is yet to come


Is a story into which we buy

 

Between that moment and the one not born


Is a world, stunning and free from strife


So I will sit and reengage


This mystery we call life

 

 

I Am

“I” am but a thought,
a loosely stitched patchwork of memories.
Frayed and gapped,
An illusion of my doing, the apparent sum of me.

Present to the world,
this gossamer veil of lesser truths.
Molded and shaped,
for the benefit of other eyes.

Tattered and worn,
threadbare, light cannot be shadowed.
From sleep filled eyes,
awake, now into the simple dawn I go.
