Another Love Story

Everyone was crowding her home that morning, pushing each other out of the way to gaze at the note nailed to the door. Curious, I walked up to read it, though not without provoking the sneers of the townsfolk. “Tough luck! Ye can’t catch a maimed oxen if ye wanted to!” a gruff man yelled towards me amidst laughter.

Trapped

Trapped

A cool fall evening Smoke’s already drifted away Leaving me alone In my thoughts Locked in my head Unable to escape Just break out They say Just stop They proclaim Boldly going Where they assume I have not If it was that easy I think I wouldn’t be stuck to begin with Nothing they say matters Sorry Move on Stay calm Meaningless ramble Even if I could Leave this space I wouldn’t dream it I love it too much Draining…

Breathe

Breathe

To quiet the mind is bliss Difficult to master But easy to embrace No lack of thought Just drifting First in Then out Breathing In Out Silent Until the next moment

Drifting

Drifting

Oh how serene Sweet blue and green Drifting moss Lazily growing amidst the reeds Darting fish Snatching food from hooks Baited and caught A new hole forms Through the lip Before freedom once more Fins pushing and pulling The lazy fish through the water And the moss drifts Again

A Leaf In The Wind

A Leaf In The Wind

A leap And a twirl A drop And a fall Neverending Into darkness Light receding Until it’s but a glimmer A lost hope Eternal flight Without control No direction No more tries No more lives Just the one Drifting Into eternity A leaf in the wind Tumbling ever downward The branch Long gone Only the black below Calm Yet turbulent Silent Yet noisy Soft Yet hard to swallow To cope

Inoculated Fears

Out of Reach

Out of Reach

What I wouldn’t give to hug you Hold you in my arms Kiss your neck Your cheek Your lips Warm you up When you’re cold Sing Sinatra or Santana to you When you’re down Make you giggle Make you smile once more I want to be the guy that sweeps you off your feet Your knight in shining armor Instead I guess I’m just a lonely squire Striving to achieve something Just out of reach A dove on the end…

Try Again… Later

Happy Endorphin rush Synapses pulsing Body relaxing Mind numbing Calm Serene Pursuing something Is it love Or just another stray thought Insane Membranous explosions Tear ducts full to the brim Understanding Misunderstanding Loving Thinking Hopeful Togetherness Oneness Simple words Complex meaning Portal to other worlds Don’t say Something stupid Smile And simmer down Try another day

Shining treasure in the darkGlimmering with magycal lightEmitting an energySo powerfulSo intenseThe Gods’ themselves are awestruckBy this treasure of blinding lightSitting patiently within dark wallsOf its own creation I seek this magycal treasureTo see whether it is trulyAs intense as it is believed to beAnd the only thing in my wayIs this tall dark wallTo scale this is nigh impossibleBut I will not be deterredBy mere impossibility I can feel the magycal energySeeping outThrough cracks in the wallAs I searchFor…

Endorphin Rush

Endorphin Rush

There is a path leading me Towards your pedestal Made of marble inlaid with obsidian The two colors clash violently Yet coalesce into beauty together Oneness And there I find you Staring beyond me Through me And as I reach forward You vanish into thin air Like mist Only to appear behind me Muscles tense Ready to turn But you already hold me in your soft grasp I shudder As you rub my shoulders Relax You say to me And…
