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

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

we’ll find the answer

beauty unseen
in despair,
felt like a lead weight
across my chest,
and inside my heart, blessed

forevermore
is known, yet
time stood still
for a moment, grown

and,
unbeknownst to me
lasting an eternity…

felt
deep inside,
trees look at me, and
shake their limbs, they see

the magic
living inside of
every moment,
even those that feel
so solemn and swollen

with feelings
bound together,
configured
like a mass of pressure

growing
stronger over time,
unable to realize
the thread’s end
lives inside

awaiting a kindness,
often seen in my dreams,
I recollect all those
lost feelings, and
begin to pull the thread
closer to me

and,

as the thread comes forth,
the pressure subsides,
as the tears wash away
the pain of yesterday

so gray, and
at the same time
lighted rays fill my heart
with gratitude,

may I stay?

is a question
needed not,
leave off the clamour,
for its inside this space
where we’ll find the answer

just like a star-spangled night

heart bared,
and transfigured,
manipulated,
just like a trigger

pulled on
again, and again

I often
asked myself
then

where
did this
story begin…

in a
deserted
landscape, devoid
of senses, and
flushed
with ambiguity

we reflect
upon
those moments,
with a zeal
and flourish

and,
understand
today, they

kept us away
from the connection
we felt,
deep inside

actions
eluding us,
unable to take
ahold of
the unity dealt,
however, aligned

in
the presence,
and

knowing,
always arising, yet
unable to abide
in our heart’s center,
so bold and kind

and, years later…

the knowing
did not subside,
rather, it
grew deeper, and
shined forth,
just like
a star-
spangled night

so… let us begin…

the river runs
north and south,
feeling the drift
of the current begin,
letting go
of the trembling within

for now…

discovering
more on the banks,
eddies sharply tasked
with creating stability,
loose leaves raining down,
cascading,
for deliriums sake

a break…

not far away,
stowed, and a little
out of control
wanting to resign,
as the love
of my life
passes by

walking
along the shore,
greeting the love,
missed by a kiss,
forevermore, remiss

the light…

cascades
through the trees,
dancing, and
entrancing,
so majestically
touching
the being withdrawn
from within, so…

let us begin…
