Juxtaposition of Love

 
 
If I could
I would erase every memory of you
to regain faith in love  
evading all questions  
unanswered
en-
tranced
waiting for crumbled pieces to fall  
rusted scrolls  
in the dilemma of dreams
re-
versed
 
There seems to be  
no ending to the quickening within senses
in each wavering branch and spiraling bloom  
unfurling awakenings  
spiritual and intrinsic;  
the purity of innocence
longingly
suspended in each atom  
splitting  
and  
the chaos of silence
twined around itself
 
I donít miss  
the wind harrying the maiden grass
and my hair sweeping across my face
shielding the momentary belief in miracles
nor
the vapor rising from stones
drenched by cold April rains
relieved
in
releasing weight of secret  
bent with larches  
to unexpected pain of changes
all reminding me of you
and your scent lingering
thrill by thrill
under my skin
 
The world span  
on its axis  
gyrating
logic with illogical  
epically
bemused of the muse
rolling dice  
of  
etymology
discombobulating
The language of love
 
Iíve plucked your words  
like precious gems
tucked  
in dark alley behind the shop with faded sign
ďWe Repair EveryThing but Broken Heartsí
placing them on marble steps of the church
on one way street
tacit and solemn with fading ether
awaiting for the moment  
when Iíve had enough of you
the sun and stars anguished in their worthlessness
dissolved in the graphite canvas
breaking beams in half
meshed in lace spires
mirroring  
repose
 
Landmarks change with passing time
while I wallow in the arms of another
naught not, you shall never know
tears of rue
and  
throbbing ache flowing
incessantly  
to rip every lining and rupture every seam
breaking the needle and its tiring eye
reclaiming
a moment
inerrant  
 
If I could
Iíd find a new religion
absurd
magnificent  
in its  
juxtaposition
 
Half-
believing
with all the fallen
in  
tragedy of love.

We Shall See

Don't tell me what's on your mind
I don't want to believe it
Assumptions I'm scribbling
But I'm thinking the same thing
Let's not give it power
Let's ignore it's relevance
Revel with our masked affections
Its a bliss in this moment
Use each other for ourselves
Indulge on our cravings
I beg of you let's not ruin this
Even though we both know what's coming
Forget the future we for see
I have waited for you, at last we will meet
Ride the pony until it's red
In the end it will stay dead

There you go as I watch you
Smile with acid burning my goo
A sentence you will be in my ten page book
Hook up number three that sang no hook.

Iím Sorry

Iím sorry I behaved that way for many years,
I was an immature young man for a long time,
Unsure of things with so many irrational fears,
I should have been able to see, to read the signs.

My feelings went astray somewhere along the way,
Come on, letís be real with ourselves, honest to God,
We arenít teens any more but I just hope and I pray,
Because I donít want to keep up with this faÁade.

I know married couples go through difficult times,
And nothing is perfect but we have to realize,
We have broken our sacred vows and thatís not fine,
We have shattered our cores now we should open our eyes.

Iím sorry I donít feel the same way anymore,
But I think you should know the straightforward truth,
There is someone else because we opened that door,
I have been unfaithful, deceitful and uncouth.

And though I may or may not ask for your forgiveness,
Itís a terrible thing when a man leaves his wife,
I wan't the person to bring you happiness,
But I think without me youíll have a better life.
