You gave me wings
        And I am soaring
                  Yet it haunts me
                            The ghost of Icarus
Words speak volume with intensions unheard

My grandpa
             Words he gave
                            To me once upon a full moon
“Son” he said
            “When you go into this life”
“Remember, that love is a language “
             “So find, my son, find someone”
                     “Who speaks your language “
      “So you don’t have to translate your soul”
                                   Hmmm.

Do you remember...

When the fields bloomed
And the winds blew

When the birds chirped
And the butterflies floated
Above the daisies

Do you remember...
The sweet redolent fragrance
From the colorful flowers
And her skin

Mingling with the smell of the dirt
And his skin

Do you remember...
The sound of the silent wind
Rushing through the petals
And the soft moan
That chased after her breath

Do you remember...
The beauty of the tired sun
Dipping down below the sky
To hide from the night

And the softness of his chest
On her back as they watched it dip
How they intertwined their fingers in the passion of the song

Do you remember ...

It is Just...
... it’s just something about how her sleek black eyebrows meet her glittering brown eyes where her nose begins.
So beautiful...

Your love was like air
When I loved you
I inhaled
And oh it was amazing
Like a new born
I tasted it in the beginning
And I wanted more of it
I wanted
To make it mine
Then and forever
Now more than ever
It feels
Like I am in a cloud
Filled with particles
Of smoke
Obstacles of love
Where oh my lover where
Is the air I once live for
The love I once felt
This cloud of smoke
That we’ve made ours
The bitterness
The air that goes to my heart no more
But to my lungs
The love that gives me fresh air no more
But smoke to fill up the space
The vacancy in my life
Gripping and choking
Ripping apart and bleeding out
Oh the betrayal
All for the sake of the fleeting
The passing
Like the smoke
My lover
I hurt
My lungs
They burn
My heart
It chokes
On your smoke.

Four pews up
Beyond the long isle
So close but so distant
Closest in thought
Farthest in sight
A flower created by mine
A blossom in print
Full of color, oh so colorful
The buzz i feel
Sweet scented honey
Craving from the cradle
A beauty for a beast?
Beastly beautiful
With radiant love
Rising flowing tide
A river of wide wishes
Far and beyond class
Yeah, Four pews up
Beyond the long isle.
