The bright ray of the sun enters through our window landed directly at your face unveiling a beauty that captured my eyes as you slowly wake up from your slumber I get to catch a glimpse of what I'll wake up to for the next days of my life and what my arms will embrace when darkness falls upon us.
You, my love a chunk of the endless afterlives I'll take where my soul wanders the plain and search even for a hint of your existence. My body, like a built in memory foam that remembers every corners you placed your flesh onto and hoping for you to arrive ready for a home that only craves for you.
Grant me a wish, Oh God divine and true for the lover I swear to love, To have and to hold, I wish for a road that in every after life we'll face, no matter how long it'll take, how rough it'll be, she'll find me on that road waiting for me to hold her once more
I took to the shore my final day my final few hours the Sun was low and the breeze had a coolness though it was blistering hot earlier I was watching an osprey returning from the ocean a sizeable fish in it's claws the beach was sparse this late I relaxed and enjoyed the sounds and sheer beauty of the Outer Banks from my left I heard a light gasp that startled me as I hadn't noticed her approaching she spotted a lettered olive as the sea gently lapped the shore it was rolling back towards the next wave but she managed to grab it just in time a look of delight crossed her face glowing like the Sun itself 'Nice find' I said 'those are tough to come by in that condition' 'they are my favorite' her eyes sparkled blue and her auburn air tied in a bobble hung far down her back 'nice to meet someone who still appreciates the beauty of a sea shell' I was hoping for a name but one didn't come instead, she looked up sent a gaze that ignited not shivers but an energy down my spine 'If only everyone knew the beauty that lives here It's nice to meet another who sees as well' I started to respond, but she turned and continued down the beach her white kimono lightly lapping with the ocean breeze appeared to be from a time past I turned my attention briefly to a group of pelicans playing 'follow the leader' just above the waves I could not let her go I gathered enough courage to continue this chance meeting but when I turned, she had disappeared impossible we are no less than 50 yards from the path off the beach I just saw her less than 30 seconds... I called out...but felt foolish I tried to gather my thoughts a light voice...or thought came as the breeze quieted my name is Eve... I walked the shoreline until it became too dark to stay bewildered...I bid goodbye to the ocean and turned to leave something caught my eye in the sand amongst the thousands of shells on display there lay a beautiful, perfect lettered olive I will hold onto this one
I take my family photo albums And pin those ghosts down to the walls I keep running to my past trying my best to bring it back to life always thinking “there’s a real life haunting.” when I see myself any younger than 19 I take my family photo albums And try to pin down your love as if I’ll be able to see the warning signs if it’s been written on the walls I keep running back to my past like an old wives tale half told truths slipping through hands and passing from mouth to mouth Landing on my dinner plate filling it all the way up I take my family photo albums and wonder “why is it?” I do not recognize who is staring back I keep running back to my past trying to find out everything about who I am
- I've been trying to find clues about who hid me away
they dance on the edge of nearly unperceived breezes the sighs of dead men's final breath that follow me to the edge of the thickets many lay at the feet of those who wish to taste death but not know it brothers in arms who cross from the horrors often placed upon them by man into a swath of light that holds no measure of time or space or pain they are free to walk from the remnants that linger in living consciousness yet remain tied to the moment of their crossing the essence of their love for kindred souls
