A Lost Art

How rare, how innate this journey 
manifests to be, the foreshadowing 
of a loners blessing. 

That intuitive thought to travel 
with when my third eye seems blemished. 
A mannequin of myself hidden in 
longevity, that has yet to spoil. 

I sometimes allow thoughts to slip 
away from this safe haven,
thereby welcoming consequences,
consequences only an amateur 
would allow. 

In this game of similar links,
I’m quickly reminded of a presence 
bestowed upon me. 
Those allies illustrated for battle.

Only a true soldier could retrace these 
portraits, heavy pages of uncertainty that we failed 
to erase. I’m grateful however, of the genuine flame it 

We defeated the irrelevant 
hazing, and found the blueprint for 
A groundwork for future war scars discovered
in our spirit. Overtime we prayed, and
received that undaunted 

Still, perhaps in this physical scene, 
There lies too much symmetry for this 
parallel vision. 
Some fade away as a result, 
anticipating a reunion in higher 

But as this masterpiece continues to illuminate, 
I praise God for this muse called friendship.

    I love the rich imagery and expression you've used, guiding us to the narrator's thoughts.... A very fine piece! :-)
