a work in progress, like life


She winked, and smiling with 
her eyes,
kissed my parched lips,

I could not return her kiss,

and though the years have spun 
their cobwebs,

fashioning vacuums out of 
forgotten dreams,

It is that kiss that I most miss.


Tonight, I lie awake,
lathered in layered memories,

of love lost, and of love gained,

of open skies,
and of rains crashing through 
my weak rhymes,

that have strained,
across the vast emptiness,

seeking absolution,
for my emotional crimes... 



(This Scribble is a Work in 
Progress. Just Like Life)

    My friend, I believe this write will be a self sustained and self feeding creation that, just like life, will continue on and on till the ending begins an epitaph... Great talent here.... Jake

    Emotional crimes are the only crimes that with guilt offer regrets too..I loved your sad romantic verses.

    Thanks as usual, Charma! You are far, far too kind, and I am continually touched that my paltry scribbles have touched you...
