Conundrum of Love

Purpose the reasons of the night lift the cover of day
For lust bound friends
Follow hard the meaning of sight and sound in hand
Fragile the blink of yesterday
Found in the fist of the forgotten
Dine on sweet lullabies and suggestions unopened
Twisted memories soar in my overt possibilities
As my personality tumbles lost
Longing tracts lingering just dusty
Trailing whispers as we try to beat 
The conundrum of love
Menace me blind love lost memory
Brandish your hand strike the gifts of mercy
Find me and attach your arms to my hindering
Force me to drink the cup full and proud
Diseased among the lepers of merriment
Clothe me with your breath of years held out
Hampering time and recorded misery
Extend my days and never ending nights your rest
Reveal my intent to heart and soul wrapped song 
Spend my days buying love and burying the accessories
Barter lips and touch for love’s lies
In my still life
