Inconclusive

It is there, and it whispers in and among thoughts

Barely evident, like a shadow, perhaps imagined

Draping my collarbone weightlessly

Taking my elbow and guiding through the crowd in my mind

 

Turn my head, trying to avoid it, not look at it

But wanting to look far more closely

Daring not, it is too early

For looking askance at something intangible

Sweet Nothings – recorded and penned 2014

Sweet Nothings

Click below to hear the reading

 

I can build air castles on the most gossamer of foundations

Turn a look into a lifetime,

Freeze frame a moment and stretch it into eternity

Where we never grow old, cranky or away from each other

 

I can draw from imagination stores most active

Off the cuff words in passing

Take that phrase spoken in haste

Create the rest of the conversational lifespan in my mind

 

Active, creative minds can be boon or bane

Giving life to things that don’t exist

Overwriting the reality of things as they are

Constantly writing a story that lives only in one head

 

I will swallow you whole, savoring every taste of you

But, is the flavor on my tongue your real taste?

Or… is it a confection I created from

Only the fleeting aroma of your presence

 

And when I stop, and step out of my imagination

Hot, harsh reality blares its eyes at me

Then rolls them, and sighs

Sweet nothings – that is all they were, in the end.

Lost in Spaces – penned 2014

Lost In Spaces

 

Do you ever get lost in spaces

Between yesterday and tomorrow

‘Twixt past and present?

 

Here and now, seems

Blended, framed like a bridge

Moving forward and backward at once

 

That thought I thought

Is now past and these words

Are now history

 

Once done, behind

Reach back to engage through

Memory only

 

Living happens in the spaces.

Inspiration: Memory walks and current thoughts.
