Strong arms embrace
Against a wall
Startled emotion gaze,
His unexpected movement
In silence, lucid
Still madness descends
As sunlight becomes replaced
With darkness,
Though light still
It feels to dark,
To unreal.
Into the dream of what once was
What now seems like a language
Spoken in tongues,
Lifted higher
Yet within afraid
To be dropped once again,
Like too many times before.
What malady befalls
The heart that dares to love just too very much,
When will this dance of bliss end,
In madness and despair
Of tears that never fall,
Of those now gone,
Of those who someday will be.
Set free from this embrace
Need to feel the ground below feet,
Need to feel the basics of a child,
Need to remember them all
If only for a moment.
Set against the wall
A flower clenched in a free hand
While the other remains up to shield
What dreams may come
And what nightmare slips in unwanted
To this moment.

I am a sometimes poet on a quest to master the universe of my mind. My writing runs the gamut of nature, off beat, life and basically the world as I see it through the windows of my eyes. Welcome to my blog. Sit a spell in your big comfy armchair or favorite spot and read for a while if it suits and don't forget to leave a comment to let me know who you are and all that jazz. Looking forward to what each day brings and catch you on the flip side of the stars. Peace and blessings.
