We are all sycophantic suitors of death
Chasing that wasting rot and decay
In a roundabout sick sort of way
Suckling the toxic tit of excitement
Rushes and blushes demure and debasement
Faster and faster till haste becomes more than mere waste
Diligent drug users sucking up smoke laced with nicotine
Embracing and tasting various brands of caffeine
Red meat and carbs pretty woman and fast cars
Working to damn much and playing twice as hard
Climbing mountains, hunting new types of prey
Starting fights riding wild and rough waves
Too much sun or not enough UV rays
Waking up early and going to bed late
Silence and stillness is not the enemy of the state
But we are all just chasing the only thing that could be called fate
We all die to damn young but I’d like to check out late
What is love?
Definable yet infinitely undefinable all at once.
Both raging psychopaths yet sanity restored together.
Lost at stormy sea adrift.
Take a raft to find you, knowing the risk.
Lose themselves to find you,
Push them away,
Giving you reason to smile,
a light twinkling when all else was dark and lonely.
I could go on but as we know,
Words cannot express all.
That is love.
A path of cobweb silkiness flows as a stream of tears shed by parent
forest, through which it courses.
The lustrous webbing refuses to disclose the image of sharp obstacles
couching beneath it's fragile surface.
An unsuspecting foot poised in mid-air hesitates--
And the knowing woodland weeps.
You and me set out to sea to chase the setting sun --
But it set too soon, so we caught the moon
(Still a great prize to be won).
Though, it changed the rhythm of the tides,
And all the waves they churned.
It came that you and me soon learned
We never could return.
love something in between
love the chase
love the adventure,
but this time
the wings failed to seduce the wind
love the rush
love the warmth
love the ecstasy--
euphoria by something borrowed
love the game
and play it hard
fight or fold
yet what's at stake
is more than I'm willing to risk
The pain of love is welcome;
it is sweet
without being bitter;
and worth every second
