Moving On

In the end, there’s just

Me

 

Allow yourself to see it from my view:

Love is something you lose yourself in

Regret is when you realize, too late that

Everything has changed

And instead of losing yourself, you lost me.

Dreams are haunting your waking hours with

Yearning, but nothing can be changed.

 

Go on, move forward. There’s

Only so much more that can be done when

Never means forever and

Everything we had is lost.

Farewell to a Friend

I bid adieu

To the friend I once knew

With a swift “Adios!”

And a glamorous toast.

 

I’ll wave and say “ciao”

Without knowing how

To say our final goodbye

Without a good cry.

 

So let’s make this fast

Held with memories that last

And say our concluding farewell

Before my eyes begin to swell.

Asphyxiation Fixation

An ink scarred hand

Clutching my throat

With the slightest pressure

Causing my windpipes

To be silent

As the image of you

On top of me

Pinning me down

And leaving me without oxygen

Is forever engraved

In the deepest and most sacred

Cavities of my brain.

The Unexpected

It is cold

Dreary damp and dark

Nothing to keep me company

But the absence of

Your smiles as a tickle touches your sides

Brought from unexpected fingers

Your eyes as they stare deeply into mine

Telling each other secrets of their own

Your hand grasping mine

A lifeline holding me next to you

Grounded in our world

Your laugh as it sings melodies into the air

A tune I would often long to hear

You. Only a memory

That I can’t hold on to

Beyond this journey

From life to… The unexpected.

 

You’re alive while I’m here.

 

You are lost to me

But I”ll be here

Waiting for you to join me.

 

Greet you with

All the joys we once shared.

 

You will find me

And we will

Never be lost again.

 

Still [Life]

Canvas

Freshly stretched

And never used

That smells of paper

Feels like silk

And tastes like new beginnings

Until you pick up your brush.

 

Inspiration moves you

Stroke by stroke

As you create a masterpiece

Day by day

Until passion dwindles-

Then you’ll wait

Until it strikes

And you’ll overcome.

 

The end result

Will be a painting

Of insurmountable beauty

Created by the still life moments

That you captured in your mind

Heart and brush

Forever preserved in paint

For all to see and admire.

Owl

An owl

Flies upwind

To catch the elusive

Ocean on it’s strong wings

Where nothing but a ghost

Of salt from the waves will remain.

 

Day 20 of NaPoWriMo. I fell a little bit behind this weekend, but I’m going to continue with the challenge because I enjoy the prompts. I made it 19 consecutive days in NaPoWriMo!

Fade Away

Cherubic smiles

Pinched pink blossomed cheeks

With springy hair

Amateur limbs

And inhibitions.

 

Slanted smiles

Red rushed rosy faces

While taming tangles

With experienced limbs

And imaginary invincibility.

 

Frowning

Gray

Lifeless

Flaccid

And Deteriorating.

 

Faces fading

Along with memories

Until nothing precedes you

And your soul succumbs.
