You, me, and a kiss
A meeting of the lips
Feelings such as this
Who knew they could exist?
When we met
I knew I found my bliss
Why do we remember things
Found from the finer places
that regulate moments in time
An inkling where we dream again
another day a month of years before
Some seek space as stillness binds
Through therapeutic methodologies
To think this is with love from art
in the beauty of our hearts
What qualities can a memory bring
A way to rise above that flow of life

Can you miss something you never had?
You can only miss something if you had it because
If you never felt how it was to have it and then proceed to like it,
Is it even possible to miss it?
Can you miss something you never felt?
I feel a sense of adhuri
Why do I not feel complete?
I’m missing something
adhuri - hindi, meaning incompleteness, not enough, not done
Preachers in another storm
‘STAY’ whispers Mother
Followed by another joint
hands are met
and with him I crash
My bloodstained shadow
thrashed onto the walls
Dos Tres – Another! Better!
Quatro Cinco – What a disaster!
T’was never my intention
But I succeed at my own failures
for there has always been a reward after my tormented failure.
But You can’t say I left you empty handed
you can’t say I didn’t offer you all I had
I just left
for I found better.
I know – What a ***!
For when she wishes to find him, he is out saving someone else
Just like he did her
It;s not that she’s special,
It's just that he’s too good
It's not his heart that wanted to save her
It's his will to always do good that did
So, again, she must turn away
Or else she will get lost
Lost in his constant will to do good, for everyone
Not just her, like she first thought
Maybe in hindsight, being lonely, yet found *****
But being lost is worse…. Way worse
So with that she turns away, back to the misery of being found, yet alone
Walking away from him, knowing that he won’t miss her anyway
being found isn't always a good thing
It will reveal
Things you already knew,
Like the scars you see on your skin.
I get that you’re angry
I can see it in your face
But not everyone knows you
Like I know you, so for once
Speak up for yourself
Because no one else will do it for you
What happens when I am no longer here
No longer telling them
What you want me to tell them
What happens when a nod
Or a shake of your head
Isn’t interpreted the way
You mean for it to be
Just please, speak up
expressionless and with a stare that seemed alien
the driftwood form floated and tossed in the violent sea
not knowing where IT had been or where IT would finish
tossing and turning, relying on the forces of nature for guidance
direction towards land is more then IT could hope for
soon the chaos and turmoil of the sea stopped
was IT on sand or still drifting out there in the void
IT seemed to be motionless when a blurred image appeared
not being able to recognize what IT was
not understanding ITs newfound sensations
not realizing IT was using a sense of sight
was there more to this image that understanding would support
what is this occurrence
is this simple, is this another new unknown excitement
is this even genuine
soon, IT appeared to be lifting up, being held quite gently by something
IT was suddenly and abruptly raised up and all ITs new sensations ceased
what was this, what was ITs final feeling
IT had been found...!
