a cerebral grasping of existence’s resplendence
is insufficient

tenuously treading bereavement’s tide
i cradle life

twinkling moments spent on this planet
are hallowed time

i walk in quiet reverence as tears flow
at innocuous occurrences

***’s face aglow in each instance
perspective revived

a bumblebee drifting gently settles
evoking awe

i stand pensive aforetime unaware
in cathedrals we stand

eyes newly uncovered awakened discover
celestial dimensions

people replete with infinite spirit
are all that surround

my senses abruptly adjusting their focus
‘tis an earthly angelic realm

Raindrops part with lover's walk
beneath the dreary skies.
A secret shared of our desires
the bond between the eyes.

Fingers clasped with racing hearts
their footsteps briefly pause.
He turns and gentle lifts her face,
a breath, he deeply draws.

He speaks to her of love so deep
which time cannot affect.
The only union of its kind
no mortal can deject.

And since the test of time has passed
conceding, she reveals.
Her soul is ever bound to his
and through a kiss conceals.

liberated:
the weight of you lingered until i was strong enough to push you away.

the fog has lifted:
the cloudiness of my mind replaced by the clarity of knowing i no longer want you here.

so walk away,
throw out your fingers to count those who let you down.
whilst you were mourning those who didn't care
the ones who did struggled
under the burden of a love
they could no longer bear

you pitied yourself,
now i pity you too
a cold, unfeeling pity reserved for those who cannot feel warmth

i told you to walk away.

I try to hold on but he let go of me.
I try to walk with him but he ran away.
I try to stay but he just pushed me away.
I try to fight but he told me to surrender.
I try to move on but, I can't.

From the forest of bleeding green
The floor of webs that trap the gleam
Signs of rain seen through the pines
And clouds that dim the glowing lines

Oh the vines that stretch across
That twist and turn with tangled moss!
Breathe in the air that smells so sweet
And walk until it's him you meet!

The rain beats down, along with snow
The world around begins to glow
And white that rides the lifting breeze
The cold, dark space beneath my feet

Oh the vines that stretch across
That twist and turn with tangled moss!
Breathe in the air that smells so sweet
And walk until it's him you meet!

Surrounding foam and splashing air
A *****, just something less to bear
A piercing glance and foreign stage
A mind that builds another cage

Oh the vines that stretch across
That twist and turn with tangled moss!
Breathe in the air that smells so sweet
And walk until it's Death you meet!
