Grace & the Ephemeral Embrace

Grace & the Ephemeral Embrace

“Keep your feet on the ground my child”
“Impossible”, I say. “I live in the stars.”

Midnight dips in the milky way
bathing in ancient light.
I’ve felt Draco’s fire,
I’ve loosened Orion’s belt.

I can’t know its significance,
its measure or its weight.
Yet atoms split
particles crash and a
universe expands nonetheless.

“Be cautious with your heart my child”
“impossible”, I say. “I wear them on my sleeve.”

A believer. A mystic –
in the oldest form of alchemy.
Rudimentary chemistry and
paradigm shift.

I can’t know its significance,
its measure or its weight
yet electrons vibrate,
elements attract, and
matter is shaped.

“Keep yourself guarded my child.”
“impossible”, I say, “to ever be prepared.”

A moment is upon us
then gone in a breath.
That ephemeral embrace
leaves its mark, nonetheless.

I can’t know its significance
its measure or its weight
Call it chance, or call it fate
either way –
I stretch to brush the skirts of grace.

I’m drawn deep inside of them.

his pupils dancing beneath the lids

Holding Ghosts

Holding Ghosts

electricity flashed
in those brown eyes,
your dark pupils rapidly grew,
inviting me to glimpse
at the depth of your soul.
A softness cascade
down the angles of your face,
while a crimson flush
crept up and across your cheeks,
and I swear –
your bottom lip trembled
– just a little.

or was I seeing ghosts?

All In

The deck’s been cut.
The cards are dealt.
All you have is your hand.
So play it smart,
play it right,
see his bet,
raise the stakes.
Keep your wits,
keep your cool,
don’t play on-tilt,
never give too much away.
This game has no limits,
and you’re all-in.
So play it hard,
play it smart.
All you have is your hand,
and tonight,
you gamble your heart away.

Lonely Hearts

Lonely Hearts

The yearning becomes so strong sometimes…

We can scarcely breathe.
The desire so intense…
The heart suspends it’s beat.

We search for a soul…
To satiate our longing.
We seek intimacy that will
quench my thirst and satisfy your hunger.
A need for understanding,
Trust, companionship and above all else…
