Vigor

In full splendor now
        Dried up, dying tomorrow
                   Laughter and sorrow.

Beyond Perceptions

I live on a plane
higher than your perceptions
you can't define me

my heart is my home
those who are sincere enter
not all are welcome

I hurt and I bleed
yet I'm indomitable
you can't destroy me

veiled in mystery
secure from all prying eyes
I disrobe for love

Missed

Distill emotion
to one cliché “I love you”
call it poetry

Wrap all your feelings
in colorful box, ribbons,
call it greatest gift

Inflated ego
sworn superiority
call it all I need

I hear no trace of
regret in the voice speaking
of indiscretions

I see no sign of
truth in the dark eyes that claim
to love me only

I feel not the touch
of kindness from hands that give
only when they need

Hit-and-run kisses
when all I need is for you
to linger a while

Beware the high ground
only time until the fall
inevitable

Singular captures
only the essence of one
and that one is you

I lost myself there
sometimes I think you love me
for bending to you

So say it’s untrue
though every verb indicates
quite the contrary

I can not believe
manipulated words when
you’re hiding your eyes

Redeem, for this heart
that fell blissful into you
is reaching out still

taken

Last month now seems the
distance of long ago, when
hope stood in doorways

Your walls familiar,
yet strangely distant for the
backdrop of a year,

a year I think I’d
rather let fade into the
folds of memory…

Never needed you,
but only what I thought you
could have provided – 

excitement, promise,
without a thought to the fact
that I was empty

and you could never
fill those places that simply
longed for her within…

I sought you, I found
miles of nothing underneath
laughter’s skeleton

and I cried for us,
not because we were ever
anything, but for

all that we once thought
we could have gained, and all that
in this, we have lost.
