One Day

As I sip on aged Cognac
swirling in circular sadness,
contained within cup made
of broken stained glass memories,
I witness.

Witnessing Cloud 9’s silhouette
surround this glued enigma.

Lionel Ritchie was the rock for this moment’s bliss.

“Truly in love,
with
you.”

Emanating across cathedral uncertainty,
breaking its glass.

This was a celebration of priceless Silver.
A currency only earned by the Philanthropists of Love.

Creating justifiable fantasies
with attainable dreams.

It was amor, maintained.

While I sip on Cognac’s remnants,
mixed with retina’s loneliness,
dripping
downwards
with smile craving soul-pack solution,
I exhale.

In “Deep Sigh” Symphony: No. 9.

With my ventricle chambers
kissing subconscious on forehead,
in preparation for dream come true.

Because one day,
that will
be
me.

    Your ending caught me off guard. I was spellbound by the story and was surprised to find it ending so abruptly.. the way you wrote about the typical bar scene is much more elegant than I expect, considering the subject matter. I'm curious if your last stanza was saying "one day you're dream will come true" or if "one day you'll be sitting at a bar with these regretful thoughts". The fact I find myself plagued with questions proves that your mind gets swallowed whole when you write, I like that.

    Tremendous remark, Tim! Well, despite how deep it went, the end really did mean about how the "dream will come true". :) That's why dreams are funny in that way. When you dream, it feels like it lasts for a long time. But, when you wake, you've slept about an hour or so. :) Cheers sir!

    You always put such strength in your verse. Reaching out to the amazing descriptions only adds to the fascination of reading. Can I probe your mind Drake?

    Well hi there Norma! That's very kind of you to say! Thank you so much! =)

    Oh I fully understand. I tend to embrace the abstract a bit. Good call on that. Thank you so very much, Charles. =)

    I like this. It is somewhat like my free verse, but I think a little more abstract than mine. I am a little more down to earth, not that one way is any better than another, just different. soup mail waiting.
