I can resist the inflection 
of sweltering change
If scenes of my youth remain intact

I can soothe the temptation 
a life unlike my own endures
If its swings swirl around
and invite a not too dissimilar sway
and twirl
I can ride the depth of 
intelligent thought to 
a demeaning shallowness,
Or even spell a word
until it mounts a pious willingness
to hide

I can choose silence and distant calm
in the midst of a crescendo
Queue for a ruse
that only makes this weight abide
Make a smile an unseen diversion 
from a whisper
Dance in a worrisome trance
And slowly..fade to passion's will

But I cannot deride an ending,
if life chooses to make it mine
