spinning wildly
a wayfaring web
a wandering sojourner
land to sea
ocean to shore
the reality is water and dirt
the glory is organization
a wonderment of tears
a silence of touch
a touch of compassion
the quiet of sensation
together
see the world
see dirt and water
art and life
the minds of acquaintanceship
we are not alone
except in love

Holour

     

2005-2-19

Words Words Words!
I speak a tongue none ever knew
I form the sounds romantics woo
And while I'm here I cannot see
Blinded by lights I sought to be
Yet there she is, looking at me

Time! Trust! Change!
I am what none have ever been
I built ideals to rest within
And here I am while words appear
Writing in sounds few care to hear
Yet she translates, my love, so near
     
 

What You Saw Is What I Am

     

2005-2-17

I simply missed the eyes that saw me...

Now
You think yourself a monster
a being to destroy
the precious morals and timeless values
of a lost, forgotten little boy

But
There was always that deepness
a truth you need to see
the precious morals and timeless values
are perhaps, just the things that saved me
     
 

Hourglass

Float
Translate through space
through time
Bathe in nebulas
nebulous expanses
minds

Drift
Travel by chance
by luck
Sail through stormy seas
tempestuous stardust
souls

Choose
Sojourn through ends
through glass
Hold by lovely gaze
infinite "I love you's"
loves
     
 

Existential

Fractal ice, my touch
sensation for withdrawl
and return
Thermo dynamics
a digit is melting
acclimate

Hearty spring, your desert
sentiment for crying
single drop
Liquid dynamics
a dune-rise is smoothing
undisturbed

Lucid night, the heavens
desire for gazing
astrology
Starlight dynamics
an aeon in counting
document
     
 

Embrace 2

     

2005-1-6

A sun can be seen
but it will not blind

These rays will burn
only in a loving soul

A world of raging waves
a blue sky in the snow

Light refracting waters
flow behind the trees of life

Ice covered peaks
and chills up my spine

Some place unseen
the dark side of a moon

A third celestial body
a size-shifting orb

A cosmicly glorious scene
and a face to grace it
     
 

Embrace

     

2005-1-4

Hold on
It’s time for a ride
Time for a wordless goodbye
In we, we confide
While hearts so softly sigh

Embrace
Let be flooding eyes
Build oceans for that sea-world
Hie to liquid skies
Soak flaring starlight unfurled

Hold me
For an endless time
Leave the spectators unseen
Eyes revolve like rhyme
Touch to daunt that mossy green

Skin is like air
to pass straight through
delicate, subtle
nothing to kiss

Face is like glass
to see beyond
light-bending, opaque
nothing to view

Voice is like breeze
to fade in dreams
reticent, distant
nothing to speak

Taste is like water
to wet the tongue
vanilla, mild
nothing to soothe

Scent is like stone
to prompt no sniffs
unperfumed, spiceless
nothing to breathe

You are a ghost
to catch notice
stimulating, present
something is there
     
 

Your Pet Rock

     

2004-12-12

You thought I'd pick anybody
that I'd spend the night on any bed
like who you are did not matter

But I didn't
You thought I'd leave you like mem'ry
just any other hollow body
to disappear in faceless crowds

But I didn't
You thought ill of things I can't do
scowled at a person I am not
while I'm the same in dif'rent eyes
And I picked you
