finding the music

DSC_0204
The light fades
dying to the rhythm of passing cars

sudden sporadic darkness brings
tiny lapses in time

a musty smell of all the travels
breathes life into the dusty dancing walls

the light finds a way through the window
peering onto a perfectly woven seat cushion

and the sounds of rattling of minds
beg to be heard again

softly the song plays through this abandoned train

love steps

DSC_9491
all she feels under her feet
walking through summer nights
she tries to satisfy the distance in his face
and she’s under another
pierced by his eyes-
two like delirium
two-twice as nice
she finds the steps
and pretends their romance
in his blindness, she pretends
thinking she’s safe-
a shield of familiar
just a different pace
she studies the words
written under the strategy
she dances over the tension
lyrics of the insane
she laughs against the beauty
and falls beside the plain
and she tells him to meet her in the morning
to stay forever-
though she knows he is gone

perfect toes

run until you can’t pretend anymore
until your imagination explodes
on these blades of grass
the in between your perfect toes

sit on my lap and let me give you
a thousand kisses
I’ll make a thousand wishes-
one on your forehead- I wish shelter from thoughts
one on your elbow-I wish the pain of tomorrows away
one on your cheek-I wish you assurance in your beauty
one on your little hand- I wish innocence you always can find

let me run with you again and again
let me fill my day with the simpleness
the pure joy-
of following your little footsteps

people-like versions of ourselves
pillars of representation
the challenges, the trials, the pure joy
we move within them through these life-times
delivering us to the purest sense of self
we find them when we need them,
release them when we don’t
beneath the co-existence,
the common desire for love,
hope is the connection that keeps us here
