Fragments

I dreamed a memory as clear as day
But forgot on waking till this daysnight
As words found home and lifted a fog
Instantly transported to sleeping insight

I know it well for it plays on repeat
No words but their lack silence complete
Barely seconds then gone with a wish
To lift uncertainty not leave with a kiss

So why then the dream of deja vu
Without a twist to brighten the tale
Only a torture I’ve lived many times
A singular reminder of how loves fail

Platitudes

“One day when you wake it will just be gone”
So I waited and prayed for that day to come
It seemed like forever would never come true
But now I look back I’ve moved on from you
I don’t know when nor how long since you left
Was only reminded by your name on my breath
I guess after all the platitude held
And one by one the delusions fell
So now when I wake you are no longer there
As real,as memory, as fate or as care

Choices

 

 

Choices choices choices

None made

None kept

None known

Choices choices choices

One step

One loss

One home

Choices choices choices

Too soon

Too far

Too hard

Choice choices choices

All gone

All left

All scared

Too Long In The Dark

I wanted to believe
That hope didn’t lie
I was never deceived
True love couldn’t die
And for all my failings
Though I know I’m blind
That smile sent me sailing
But that smile isn’t mine
In a second I was torn
Not in choice but in torment
I saw my hope as forlorn
What still remained of fate spent
So what then is left to say
When ones dreams are broken on rocks
And no matter how hard you pray
Your face will not hide the shock
Left alone just too long in the dark
What sparks now and then never makes flame
And though we may reminisce about the start
It seems that time will never come again

The Wind

 

 

 

I of course survived

said the tortured winds of time

For as you look around

You will see the world is mine

Though there were pretenders

Their bones I’ve turned to dust

So to their civilization

And it’s intrinsic lack of trust

Now I swirl around you

The planet’s history in my song

Who will hear the words of warning

And understand they don’t belong

My time is simply forever

Yours a second in its path

As with all others before you

Your arrogance makes me laugh
