Never Forgotten

Note that many Seasons have turn,

As second hand sticks, have grown dizzy,

Stuck in time.

And now, there are lines plowed,

At the corner of Trade and Main,

They once were paved .

Those streets.

Now cracked by millions of smiles.

Also, a few tears.

We’ve both gathered flames, since last we spoke.

But somehow, those flames,

Lost their dance on the crowded plateaus.

Oh, time, that fiendish mute!

Stalking, stealing, and brands me a slave as I continue my wait.

You must have missed your train?

Maybe from the cracked streets?

Or maybe time, stole you away.

But for me, as I tell it now:

You are never forgotten.

How could you be?

Even in edges of thoughts,

Though they might have developed sepia and yellow,

I will always think of you on this day.

This is the day.

These are the memories.

And I will crack another street remembering.

Eleventh Hour

Will you answer,

When the voices cease?

Will you walk forward,

To where the crickets sleep?

And will you sigh,

When the sun sinks down?

Or catch that brief glimpse,

Of the fabled wedding hound?

For tonight is the age,

Where fine fiddles march.

To say goodbyes,

Before the tongue doth parch.

Or maybe, just maybe,

The hero will drop in guise?

To claim my last petal,

Before it wilts, withers and dies.

Forget Me Not

In darken corners

Of bruised hearts

The Forget Me Not

Will sometimes mark

Graves of scars

In velvet cloak

Tattered by tears

From empty yoke

Fragile stems

Gone to seed

In lovers gardens

An unkempt weed

Overgrown

With wistful longing

The Forget Me Not

Blooms hope prolonging

Tender petals

In pale pastels

Enduring love

That never fails

Faithful flower

Bouquet of blossom

Inside my heart

You are never forgotten

Seminole Moon

Ol’ gypsy moon

Mother of the Seminole

Find my lost lover

Rescue my weary soul

Fill me with calming peace

Heal me from the hate

Give my lover courage

Let your glow illuminate

Two lives separated

But connected by your tide

Hear my pleading prayer, ol’ moon

Bring me back to life

Pull his heart closer

Remind him of my love

Give him my many kisses

Blown to you up above

Ol’ gypsy moon

Send my lover back my way

My only wish tonight

Is bring him back to stay

Ol’ gypsy moon

Wipe my tears away

Reunite what’s been lost

I can’t live without him another day.

My Song

Even though we are far apart

You are the song that keeps singing inside my heart

A complex aria of perfect melody

Sings to my soul of our fated destiny

My heart was born beating along to your tune

Captivating me by the seductive light of the river moon

Singing me lullabies you help me sleep

Until your return, I will love you deep

Sing to me in dreams and hold to my hand

Keeping me safe without you, in this heart lonely land

Compass

Cats bark secrets

At hidden new moons

Bringing back memories

Always gone too soon

Senior’s first word

Beginning at the end

Hangs white poignant stars

To midnight’s curtains thinned

Unicorn knelling loudly

In prayer, just out of sight

Guarding suns treasured magic

For dreams to take flight

The world keeps spinning dizzy

Turning my square chaos around

Searching for you, comes empty

My heart pleads to be found

But still, I hear your voice

Compass, introduced at our birth

Anchoring connate knowledge

You….

are my true magnetic north

I Can Still

After all this time,

It is in the highest

Respect of regards

That I can still

Wonder at

Your fragile

Human beauty

And shield it

Protectively within

My wounded

But forever hopeful

heart.

 

It is there,

That I can still,

Remember

And

Wait for you.

Marionette of Love

 

Image result for michael cheval paintings(Basket of Love- by Michael Cheval)

 

We are the puppets of star-crossed love

Twisting together

Involuntarily, perfectly fit

Achieving, higher celestial emotion

Completing double-hearted acrobatics

With somersaulting churns,

Competing for the twinkle of stars

Given the medals of the Universe

Rare chemistry fizzes excitement

That binds eternal

Dragging us toward one another

Through space, time and hell

Magnetizing

Around your carousel pinky

I will dance rings around roses

Entwining sui generis

Jigsaw fingers imprint

I dance to you

Together we fuse

Made to enhance ascensions experience

Grabbing at death-defying gravity

Securing comforts unrecognized

Out running the odds of loss

Laughing in delight, in the face of fate

We are champions of our marathons

Existing to conquer the disbeliving

While the Universe pulls our strings

We love despite adversity.

 

I will be a doll

Center stage

And, all in such a dainty and fragile universe

 

It is you, I will always dance for.

The tip taste of our souls melded

Has left me unable to be ordinary

 

I have found my home.

Where my heart strings connect.

Home where my soul is at peace

With you my soul is strongest

With you my soul is smartest

With you-

It is where I belong

 

I will wait,

Crouched in the rafters

My strings have gone loose

Awaiting your return

Awaiting to dance in love again
