I dreamed

I was sitting among many
You pulled me up to dance

And I laughed and let the faces slide past
You drew me near and kissed my head

And I gasped, looked away
And hid my heart; 

and fled.

I’ve fought a thousand battles trying to find you, searching for some infinite desire that would anchor me to another

I found nothing and no one

Only dust. 

Just shadows full of twinkling promise,
Remnants of love; so I kept looking
And I discovered strength instead of companionship. 

Dignity instead of desire. 

Joy
in place of longing. 
And I am free of binding chains; now I search languidly, with expectation

Instead

Of desperation.
 

Autumn

Well, again the leaf-dust swirls the air
And star-gazers sigh under blankets of slate
Dark-turning earth shivers far from the sun
The hearts are so hot that they crack and they break,

Unable to cope with the chill in the breeze.
They glimmer, glowing shards
Reflecting stars that {carve their names in my heart}

Like the coals that burn
In your gaze.

Season

For a brief time,
The sunlight will graze my eyes

And my words will haze and thrive

And the colors will paint my pain

Roses and thorns and stains

The grating will give way to whispers
The blossom will silence the scream

i will reflect on the stars and on wonder
(do you love her?)

Until the aching returns to my dreams.
