“ Grieving ” ~ time neglected ~

I grieve for time

Passing unseen,

Tho anxiously

I try redeem,

An absurd task

Held be a dream,

Behind the mask

That only seems,

To assuage its fear

Now less than keen, 

When down the line

Reality holds clear,

That life I left behind

Actualizes many years,

Yet neglected tell my mind

There be life beyond the tears,

For obtusely squandered designs

That has me grieving, now ill timed!

“ The Smile ” ~ wants trick reality ~

There’s a smile

On his face,

Tho for a while

He’ll embrace,

Gathered years

Of delusory state,

His abstruse façade

Holds stuff of tears,

Thus he feigns glad

No one can hear,

What surges inside

He’ll fancy hide,

By imaging wise,

To cover sorrow

Until it subsides,

As causes held wide

Wants trick reality,

With smile that disguises!

“ If Only ” ~ wishful thinking ~

If only

Wishful thinking

Evidenced an inkling

Of probable reality,

Mightn’t so endorse

That of every wish

Held dreamers,

Be credible of course,

Save the odd amiss

Finds wasted time,

For likely be but myths

Of disquieting design…

 

If only

Suffering wants,

Said wishful thinking

Be thus understood,

One may not opt bidding

For mind game’s likelihood!

“ Love By Any Definition ” ~ be about admission ~

 

Love,

Be what you sense,

Bowing to your feelings…

 

Love,

Be dreams

That come to be…

 

Love

Be thought

Provoking fantasies, 

Wanting of reality…

 

Love,

Be images

Of cloudy definitions,

Coming into focus…

 

Love,

Be emotions

You hope share,

That will not fade…

 

Love,

By any definition

Be about admission!

 

 

“ The Next Place ” ~ finding spirited minds ~

 

In time I’ll reach

That other place,

Though obsidian

Need be embraced,

And look to find

Spirited minds,

With mirth akin

To likes of mine,

Whose wit posits

One be inclined

Thus so to laugh

Away a grimly day,

When in its stead

You find the way

To what be left

Of life to play,

Until so bound

Be but to face,

Last time around     

Be the next place!
