In the box
I am sworn to secrecy
His gaze against the shadows of the bars
has grown so weary
it deflates in fades
Suppressing the entirety of his remorse
‘To him, there seem to be a thousand bars
and back behind those one thousand bars no world’.
The other step
runs away with the breath of space
In a time undefined by reason
In the smallest of shifts and turns, circling
moves like a dance of strength around a core
in which an eccentric
In time there always remains a question
The faith that transcends
The magic curtain slides
from side to side
soundlessly — He is there.
So many possibilities to be free from the beginning, and uproot the past of burden burgeoning like a flower’s ability to withstand change in unpredictable soil and yet still feel alive.
He expands through the tension
the calmness of limbs — and stems
in the heart which fate prescribes to be a mighty will stood parallel to them.
Love is unintentional decision making upon the choosing of a
Bat wings in my heart
This life is my teacher
Take me to a room
without an education please
Put down a book that moves the table and reads the script from my last piece
Not the other way around
Magical thinking describes our destiny, the rest is fate
I’m not here to school you
And clutter builds into a false enamel
If not maintained
Fleeing toxicity is a freedom beyond understanding
Outside the peripheral
grief spins me upside down
The last flower petal remains
With it’s scent forever reminding
Of our song
When the streets are lit with lamp designs
And Arabian nights alive in the instrumentals
Living within our home without
The perfect combination
Of chivalry, compassion, and attention to the details
This is an emotionally available man
Sin is a perception
The clearance of past partners
Leaves my space
To make rooms upon the doors newly turned
for an atmosphere of hope
The written letter reads as I write:
To my love, I love you with all my being.
For You are everything I asked for when
My mind left me
My consciousness awoke for you to be found by me now.
And that cannot be duplicated.
For I am Gratefully blessed. By you.
To Our eternity.
Cheers to our eternity.
I’m with you.
