It seems crazy sometimes,
just trying to stay positive
or maybe I have reached my
limit of pretending to be normal.
Eating cereal with a fork since
the late 70's, a ragged collection
of wild ghosts that offend Heaven
with wanton paganism.
Looking for a peaceful place to
scream in terror at the realization
so many years are gone, going so
fast and I can't get them back.
I am old and gray and bald, and
walk with a cane. blinking my eyes
again and I am a great grandfather.
And I recall so many loves that
didn't last, that came and went
like a hummingbird feeding and
gone, some of them with insatiable
depths that needed to be fed.
Some with hungers for the wailing
of tortured flesh,roaring whispers of
the men they'd swallowed.
But I know she is still out there
waiting for me to appear. Jon York 2021
Making a big life change is pretty scary. . .
But you know what is even scarier? regret.
In the end, we only regret the chances we
didn't take, relationships we were afraid to
have, and the decisions we waited too long
Everything in your life is a reflection of a
choice you have made. If you want a different
result, make a different choice.
Growth is painful, change is painful. But nothing
is as painful as staying stuck somewhere
you don't belong.
Getting your **** together requires a level of
honesty you can't even imagine.
There is nothing easy about realizing you're
the one that's been holding you back the
The fact that you aren't where you want to be
should be enough motivation, Jon York 2021
are our two souls
found between light and dark,
so tender is this certainty
When the Sun finally rose,
delicate hearts didn't
burn to ash.
Sharing deep confessions
that grow these hearts
May loving be our reason
I ask that you warm my heart,
soften my rigid walls and
bend my pride.
From a blight of nothing
to morph otherworldly
that is desire. Jon York 2021
You are We loved
delicious with a love that

You are And you were
generous a risk
and I am a mystery and
needy. the most certain
You are ever known.
and I am
I could watch you
You are flammable for a single
and I am minute and find
burning. a thousand things
I love about you.

I put half of poem on HP in 2019 and it was well received but for some reason I removed it. I added some to it and put back on,
we'll meet again,
in another lifetime
for in this lifetime
you couldn't be mine.
I'll follow your trails
life after life
for my soul is bound to yours...
It isn't just love ( for love is
just an illusion in this
illusionary world ).
It is a connection that goes beyond
space and time...
We will meet again...yes my love Jon York 2021
again and again
we become one
because I'm your home,
your beginning and end.
A warm embrace,
a long wet kiss.
A warm moment
you didn't realize
how much you miss.
But its been so long
all you can do is reminisce.
a source of bliss.
But there is
also a feeling of abyss.
Why in the moment
did you dismiss?
Looking in you I find myself
and a realization of truth;
the truth - you are me and I am you,
an atom split into two. Jon York 2921
refused to fade.
so many years
why does this
of place of
my thoughts? Jon York 2021
