when people are in love
they often say
they simply fell
tripped over their own two feet
face forward
and into the arms of their beloved

i did more than simply fall
onto the ground of your love

you, for me
were an ocean
and i dived
headfirst
roughly
harshly
almost painfully
into the waters of “you”

i knew i could not swim
but i did so anyway
i was drowning
entangled in you
surrounded by this being of “you”
engulfed in this feeling of “you”

and i did not know what came over me
but i let myself drown
i did not try to swim back up
because if i went back to land,
releasing myself from your grasp
that would mean losing the feeling of “you”

and after
submerging into the depth
the love
the passion
of “you”

how could i ever leave?
I woke
to half a moon in the sky
and thought of her
sleeping
lips slightly pursed
breathing
under half a moon
in the sky
kissing
skin glowing
touching mine
under half a moon
in the sky

Past and future just an illusion
Only now is forever
Vivid images in reconstruction
Memories fragmented
Our mind
The bank of riches
Growing in wealth
But robbed by despair

So much darkness bestowed upon you, cruel
Wide eyed demons, full of wicked schemes
But you are no fool, nor are you weak
Deviance cannot last
As Darkness becomes light
Look to the leaves and the calmness of the trees
Look to the sun and the beauty that it be
See that nature is you and you are it
Keep strong like the bark, as you have done
See the light deep inside,
Forever has it been
And Never has it left

Deep delicate eyes,
as luscious as the forest woodlands
How I long to be lost in them

A desire for your presence
it churns my heart, tenfold.
If only I could swim oceans
at speed..

Our minds deep
woven for hours in words,
Your playful laughter
tugged at my soul.
Vibrations intertwined
How they stopped so abruptly..

My thoughts left in unset futures
looking for ways for us to start anew

No sadness comes to mind
left with blank expressions

Candid confusion
rattling my cage
aided by momentary anger

I manage my insanity
adjusting the dials
to allow for my sanity

Our words become riddles
how can we hope to understand
did we ever try to?

Calm when I'm alone
but left with ruptures in my head
no light shines in loneliness
just left disguised instead

I still ache for a new beginning
some mutual ground to stand upon
yet I know not how to create it
or even if the chance still exists..

in
the
crystal
water bubbles
reflecting there are
golden koi

in
the
mossy
depth of feathers
ancient moonlight
is the buoy

around the
blue-grey stone's
alignment
sand is raked
in perfect poise

every
leaf
has its
assignment
crickets make
a creaking noise

---

there
within the
island garden
small and jewel-like
in the grove

amidst
kimono and the obi
there's a peace
the Nippon know

muted colors
placid faces
the paper lanterns
sway and glow

the lords and ladies
sit for hours
where
the
lotus
flowers
grow
