two vines, dancing forevermore

I watch,
listen,
and learn more,
as the forest
comes alive, and

the
vibrancy
emanating off
the floor,
speaks to me
in a language
never heard before…

light
dancing
with darkness,
as shadows
glow, and speak
of transcendence

leaves fall,
while I sprawl,
and continue
to listen
to two hearts,
intertwined now,
just like two vines,
dancing forevermore

a gift from the seas

troubled times,
filled with ties, tethered,
reminding me
of the weather,
when we
were once together

chosen
to take on
the pleasure,
while you listened
from far away, forever

distant,
hard to grasp, as
we watch
the grown grass

take its time,
reaching

towards the skyline…

will it
make it,
hard to define

the
unimaginable, yet
we find solace
in the curvatures
of the world’s futures

as they
come to fruition,
we pause,
breathe, reflect,
and protect
the actions presence, our
current sentence

as, I

ask
for your hand
again,
while we’re reminded
of the sun,
behind the trees,
hiding from you and me,
yet always present,
like a gift from the seas

a love so thick

the rising sun
reminds me,
of the
collective setting,
as we
cast our nets

lest we
forget,
the love
we never met…

reflecting upon
the dream,
I’m reminded
of you,
as roots belong to trees,
you, and me,
are one behind the breeze

of a love

filled
with such fervor,
it’s hard to
remember
the temperature
in the room
the day we met
between
the covers, spent

blanketed

in a love
so thick,
it fills the room
with a life of its own

and,
we swoon

recognizing
the futility
of trying
to capture
its essence
in purity

instead,
we simply
agree

to
just be

with
each other,
like we’ll
never have
another night
to spend together,
forever loving…

we’ll always share

weeds feed
my dreams, in a
cavalcade of screams,
while the
majesty in-between, is
just as it seems

rocking back,
and forth
on the porch,
sitting, and
staring at the dead, it dreams

like another reality
altogether, as
birds fly back,
and forth, mirroring
my actions,
without
the necessary transcendence

of being…

felt, not felt,
smothering
like a fleece blanket
on top of
the history
we’ve shared together

recalled,
less enthralled,
I walk towards you
with love in my
heart, stopped,
attracted, less
retracted,
without a stare,
only ever a deeply felt care,
we’ll always share

we finally say, I love you

complicated
memories,
like scenes
in an
uncommon mystery

dejection gives way,
reflection
comes,
and inside
we feel
that glow again, nay

fire,

burning bright,
without naught,
is alright

making sense
becomes
simpler,
holding the promise
of yesteryear

a kiss,
and a wish,
given to you, silently

whilst you slept,
nestled
so lovingly,
without notice
or a commingled
promise kept

two hearts
beat as one,
as light
enters the room,
shattering
the fragments
of loss felt

and, then
there’s
what’s left…

you
and me,
forever true,
as we finally say,

I love you
