In Flickered Lamp Light or Delusion of Lost Love

1)
In flickered lamp light 

I waited in a delusional fog for you to return

the firelight flickered encouragement to my wandered waltzing

playing out the melodies in ivory and ebony


but only the white notes rose to my consciousness

and as they did my being rose up and blossomed

cresting

with pointed lipped smiles of utter certainty in joy!



you would come back!

you would need so much more

of the custard of me

the whipped creaminess of my company

surely an ice cream addict like you...

scuffed shoes

wet hair

dry mouth


I took a sip of the Appletini extended from illusions hand

swarmed and swelled and glowed and grew tall and small

and from that height and depth I could see all the signs no one else could see


it was so clear

how very much you loved me

how desperately

how absolutely


YOU WOULD return 

I knew what no one else did and it did not matter what they told me


It is only the passing of time that has pulled up the shades, turned off the 
electric fire

unplugged that very dated lamp


and left me with a valley view 

of you


2) an edited version...would love to know which if either works better for 
you???

In flickered lamp light 
I waited in a delicious delusional fog for you to return
the firelight flickered encouragement to my wanton wandered waltzing

the light playing out the melodies in ivory and ebony

but only the white notes rose to my caught up consciousness
and as they did my being arched up and blossomed with jagged joy
cresting
I, with pointed lipped smiles 
was overcome with utter certainty!...you would come back!
I knew you would
you would need so much more
of the cup cake custard of me
the whipped creamy dreaminess of my company
surely an ice cream addict like you...
with scuffed shoes,wet hair
dry mouth
would need further quenching from me 

I took another long deep sip of the Appletini extended from delusion's hand
swarmed and swelled and glowed and grew tall and small
and from that height and depth I could see all the signs no one else could see!
I knew what no one else did and it did not matter what they said to me.

It was clear
so clear
how very much you loved me
how desperately
how absolutely....YOU WOULD come back to me 

The passing of time has pulled up the shades
turned off the electric fire
unplugged that very dated lava lamp of looping green goo that had my sanity 
entrapped there in

 leaving me in a bright fresh crisp neon green cup of true tea
with a vista valley view 
of you...
Long Gone
