Reflections

The way a rose would wilt

The depths of a search gone astray
This much I do pray
When its all said and done just give me Jesus
When the rules tend to be no fun

The light hurts at times stunned as in frozen with time
I'm blind in a mess that would loosen this rhyme
Kenny G playing nice in the back ground at the airport
An unusual request to leave behind the mess

Here I must confess;
Shattered fragments on the patio floor
Onto something yet so much more,
A rose stands out still as a memory for two

Shattered glass we will pass the way before
Let us seek to even the score
We lay awake at night still frantic as ever before,
In our thoughts still with a glimpse of laughter

The marble on the tile floor
Cobwebs surround us now as in an illusion caught in time
Broke and all alone down to my last thin dime
Yet with time a typical rhyme may rise

Beneath the garb of compromise from all its twisted lies
We look again to see our reflection in the pool of water
It cries out to touch the emblem of self yet
With a cry it will tear back an emotion with a shrug

Alone again with a sorrowful friend
Pick up the pieces from within
