Just A Guy

I bet you don’t have
Boys write about you

All the time
Very often

Nor do I
Or
If
Ever

There is a complexity
Within you
A dark maze
Beautiful
Loveliness
That is both
Ornery and
Hazed full of
Perplexities that
Are not having
Conversations with
The rest of us

Many ways

Happening in you
This very full of
Everything
Sharing only
So much
But I
Sense your silent
Greatness

Beyond the idiocracy
Of the world
There you are
Full
Of
Wisdom

Still
I hear you
Saying no
I’m just a guy

Just a guy
A dark knight full of
Resurgent love
Reminiscent to
The sounds

Defined
In my
Heart

Far Far Away

I love you on a boat
In the middle of the ocean
Far far away

I love you in a tree
A distance one would squint to see
Far far away

I love you in a mansion
On a hill behind a trash can
Far far away

I love you on a plane
Traveling across the world to Spain
Far far away

I love you on the moon
Listening to all your favorite tunes
Far far away

I love you on an island
Dancing happily and smiling
Far far away

I love you on a carriage
Riding out to meet the fairest
Far far away

I love you in a bed
Where you can rest your little head
Far far away

I love you on a mountain
A place that’s free to scream and shout in
Far far away

I love you on a terrace
Where everyone could simply care less
Far far away

But most of all I love your face
Floating deep in outer space
Far far away

Idle Tongue

Idle hands it is they say
Is where the devil be at play
Dance around the fire
Display in a
Delightful merry way

Light the candle
Shoot the spark
Watch the smoke rise
In the dark

My gossip queen
You plant the seed
Watch your tongue
Roll out the deed

Secret are the words
Projectile turns left yet to burn
Quiet quiet til they bubble
Up creating all the trouble

Dramatic fork we taste the
Naughty vulgar wicked
Licks of tawdry slippery
Unmistaken brazen
Things you say

Evolve into a sacred world
Make the changes that will
Swirl out a progress
Disenthrall the beast
That’s knocking at
Your door

Your choice to stay
Around the pit even
To hang out or in it
Is liberation to
A friend
Observation
Soon will end

To rise above
Is to defend
An age
Well spent
Deliver me

Hammock

Suspended by cords
On a canvas
Reborn
Sketch it out
Draw the mythical
Swing

What a masterpiece
Fibers will paint
A sweet exposé
Still inertia
From bold
Into faint

Free the handle as bone
The ferrule as strength
Constructing a
Passionate muscle
To claim
The life
Of a generous
Saint

At the tips of my fingers
Nothing left here to linger
I dream under covers
In wait

The distance below me
Unknown
The space up above me
Bellows

Reach up into the howl
Every feather of fowl

Displaced
Bows of rain
Without wonder
Will squander
Both scatter about
Dissipate

Slung like a scarf
Swinging couch
Lovers tarp
Swaddled
Intimate
Cloaks
Of restraint

Chainless morning
Is dawning
Sun appears
Without warning

Bright new colors adorning

Now
Bonjour just a
Footstep away

Love for Self

If ever I have seen
With the intensity of eyes
It is now

If ever I have
Been aware
It is now

I couldn’t ask for
A better place to be

The ambience
The dress
The success of nothing less
Than pure love for the self

More room for loving
That which draws
Surrounding

Even in dark paths

The sleeves
Slip up around
The angry bark
Of bitter delight

The leaves
Extending
Into the blue

A freedom tonic

As I blend so well
With tree

As we bend eternally
Environment exists
When we become it

Endless chance
And all that we create
Will now succumb it

Touch

Scratch the surface
Peel the tape
Reveal this timeless
Warm embrace
Ages will spurn
Our cosmic light
Lust after dust
Saturns return

Born in an
Empathetic sky
Heartaches unwind
Rings undefined
How perfect harmonies
Combine

Crescent by Crescent
Charm by charm
A sudden haze
A new moon phase
A pounding deep space
Thunderstorm

What love can do
What magnitude
Uncertain chains
Release the
Truth

Naked and hot
Look how we swarm
Comet eclipse
New planets form

Above the Earth
Twisting in bliss
A sensual amber
Abyss

Unbroken

Beyond the broken words unspoken
Are the treasures on the pages
Of my soul and flourishing love
That rages underneath

Unending is the saturation
The dedication
To the promise
Of what love
Can seep so deeply
In between
From up above
Bequeath the seam
And all around

The ancient text
Beneath my chest
Beats in complimentary
View of you

In words that pass
At curving tips
Edge of my lips
Are dialects of
Shattered panes
That transform light
Into multi-colored
Stained refrains

Our path will empty
At the waters mouth
Where it flows into the ocean
Upon our citadel
Soaked in memories
A small village of emotions
We still have yet
To manifest

Permission

He gave me permission
To touch him
I didn’t for fear
I would lose it
We shared a
Telepathic energy
Between us
Interrupted
By dual outside
Source souls
That are now
Non-existent

In prevalent nature
Ours was escaped
And so I see
It mattered not
If I took the opportunity
To honor his permission
To touch him
For whatever reason
I was protecting
What we had
Now lingers
Untouched
Absently

Dissension

It seems like the fight is over
And no one won
The challenge of light
The mission of love
Common ground
Multiple favors have started

There are no sides
Only one center
We can’t be that close
As a standing person
Next to us and that
Man could be anyone

I am not a blanket
Although I accept all
If you want to be close to me
It can’t be to serve
Your only goal
Go to the next
And the next

It seems like the fight is over
And the only one to win
Is the one who protects
Their own interests
Their own hearts

Because it’s trust
What is special
Is not authentic
To everybody

I am a dream that you had
Entrance and bridge
You crossed
If you cut the rope
Without knowledge
We are less than
When we started
