Love is Overrated

The romance is brief, like

Walking on dispersing clouds

 

The passion overwhelming

You never expect the sky to fall

 

Tears stain the heart

The hurt never ends

 

Romantic love –

I have learned

 

Is not so romantic

After all

What Should Be Said

I know the words

That should be uttered

At this moment,

Yet they don’t find

The right vibrations

And never leave my mind

 

Tongue is knotted

Ready to deliver,

Mind is shackled

And words

Are not free

Anymore

 

I know how you feel –

I feel it too,

The silence leaves

A space that widens

A gulf that threatens

Future love

Leap of Faith

Divided in space

A world apart,

Close enough to feel

Yet too far to touch,

Through this infinite realm

We gravitate towards

Unknown fields of adventure,

Rivers that stream with life and

Mountains of cataclysmic emotions

We have yet to traverse

 

No dream

Is simple,

No endeavor

Comes without

It’s pitfalls,

Yet here is a path

Less walked, a hope

Of something –

Worthwhile and enduring

To withstand the ravages of time

 

To look deep in to your eyes,

Feel your embrace,

I sense the world

Is moving,

My illusory grip

On reality was never that strong

And I willfully let go –

Fall from this jagged cliff

To be broken

Or healed again?
