pounding of hearts
sweating of hands
shuffling of feet
hands held
lives connect
never seen again


it is cold and dark

street lights struggle

to penetrate thick mist

suspended in animation

i am warm

a passionate burning fire

flowing through

a cave of ice

one foot follows the other

pulsating red hot rods

of energy transformed into power

through sinew and muscle

creating a sense

of togetherness

a feeling of being at one

with soul and nature

mind and body

in effortless motion

as i appreciate

the simply act

of being able to run

free

 


from the first light of the flickering filament
to the soiling of that clean white nappy
playing with toys, learning the rules of life
that scary first day with other frightened kids
and the years of listening and learning that follow
to end up cast into a world of love and hate
hunting for jobs to help me build a life
drinking in haunts to help me forget i live
meeting my first and only true love
repopulating the planet with my seed
watching them grow into miniature versions of me
as they repeat the process of life that i have been through
we grow old together and head towards
the unavoidable fate that besets all humanity
leaving behind all that we know and love
these are the memories of life i have accumulated
refuse festering in the dustbin of my mind


The sole of my bare foot

Touches the dew of the grass

Where we would run from dusk till dawn in

Sun, rain and snow

 

We were more than lovers

More than soulmates

Two spirits separated by

Layers of skin

 

Unable to melt into each other

Unable to fade our spirits together

Unable to cease as two

Unable to become as one

 

And now you’re gone

Incapable of taking the pain

Of loving in physical form only

You went and became a spirit

 

Without me

Leaving me alone

Facing a loveless existence

Until I become a spirit

 

But the soles of my feet

Feel the soul of your spirit

Through wet, fresh mud that

Seeps through my toes as

 

Tears roll down my mask

And I sink slowly towards you

Moving ever closer to you

Becoming one with you

 

Forever

How she longs to feel his body next to

Hers once again, to be pulled so

Close to him that they become one

And she can feel his skin breathing

On hers, his heartbeat pulsing through

The tips of his fingers as they bathe in

Pools of morning dew created by a storm

Of passion, so intense, so ferocious, that

 

The very essence of the planet permeates

Their souls as their spirits entwine and become

One, creating seismic eruptions as universes are

Torn asunder creating a heavenly performance

Of dancing stars that follow the rhythmic beat of

Two hearts hammering out a message of

Longing to be near each other, to hear each other,

Smell each other, taste each other

 

Just one more time
