A Matched Pair

 

A Matched Pair

They tell me that I feel too deeply ~
They say that I should rein it in ~
I don’t know how ~

I could as simply stem the tide ~
As govern the emotions
That torment and bedevil me ~

Was it an accident of birth ~
Is it a chemical imbalance ~
I only know I love you
To the point of madness ~

And now they say that love demands
A sacrifice I never thought to make ~
They tell me I must go away ~
They say my presence will distract you
From your duties ~

They will not let me say farewell ~
And deep inside I know this note
Will never reach your hands ~

I pray my love ~
That you who know my
Heart so well ~ will know
That I would never leave you ~

They cannot know ~
You are as wild for me
As I for you ~

I do not know
Where they will take me ~
But I will be waiting ~

Psalm 151

PSALM 151

Oh I have walked
By the peaceful waters ~
And I have heard
The forest’s call ~

I have climbed heights
And plumbed depths ~
I have loved and lost ~
And I have loved
Again
Anyway ~

I have tasted fear
And burned with rage ~
I have known hatred
And still have chosen love ~

These eyes have seen
My baby born
And my father die ~
I have watched the
Day dawn
And the sun set ~
And I have seen the Light ~

Now I see the patterns
And the characters
More clearly ~

I am adept at reading signs ~
Accumulating knowledge ~
For what future purpose
I cannot even guess ~

But in a Universe
Which operates with such
Minute attention
To detail ~
I have no doubt that
All will be revealed ~

Love Story

 

wallpaper-830417_960_720 the space you inhabitYou draw my eye ~ whenever
You enter a room ~
Your grace and the very
Shape and the size of the
Presence you inhabit in the Universe ~
Are so unique that I would know you
Anywhere ~

Whenever I think of you ~
I think of love on the grand scale ~
As if you and I were meant
To have a mighty impact
In the scheme of life ~
I find it hard to think of us
In any other way
And yet ~

While I was filling up those rooms
Inside my head ~ with memories
Of magic and shared ardor ~
You have been always ~ the
Calm and steady core at the
Heart of my existence ~ without
Whom I’d have shattered
Long ago ~

Here in this reality ~
You have tethered me to Earth ~
And I have shared with you my stars ~
Can you even begin to imagine
What comes next ~

Air Water Fire Earth

Earth Air Fire Water

I look up into the
Deep blue vault
Of the heavens
And think of the thin skin
Of the atmosphere
The only thing that
Keeps us from the
Dark cold depths of
Space and instant
Annihilation

I stand at the edge
Of the ancient cliff
Looking down at the
Restless ocean
As it crashes and
Breaks against the
Shore
Another attempt
In its timeless battle
To take back the land

And later still I sit
Gazing into the fire
Basking in its warmth
Thinking of long ago
Days when I was
A child and Summer
Was forever
And love was ever
A shimmering promise
On the edge of my
Horizon

I remember the fields
With the sun on them
The ripening grain
The forever rows of corn
Tasseled and shining
Green as the leaves
On the trees
That surrounded
And sheltered our
Home

Thus I recite my litany
Air Water Fire Earth
And I feel the pull of you
As I feel the effects of
The gravity I cannot see

To me you are the most
Elemental of all
Without whom nothing
Matters
You are the love of
All my lives

I see the remembrance
Within your eyes as well
And peace and love
Enfold us
We have found each other
At last

Royal Dilemma

a-beautiful_woman-1421386

The silence hums so
Loudly in my ears
I cannot hear the sound
Of my own heart
The heart that I rely on
To guide me through

The very air seems
Preternaturally still
Though I feel it moving
Through my body
I see the rising and the
Falling of my chest

What kind of alchemy
Do you possess
Are you a demon or a
Sorcerer that everyone
Falls prey so swiftly
To your charms

Am I to be the one exception
To the rule
The only citadel to which
You have laid siege
That has not fallen
To your passionate assault

But this is not a game
The stakes I’m playing for
Are higher than they’ve ever been
My heart and the fate of
The kingdom and my people
Hang in the balance

So when I make my choice
I must be guided
By more than love
I must be mindful
Of my duty to my
People and my throne

What shall I do . . .

The Time of Dreaming

allweneedislove-0b3a1a5c0432f6db9d75e3175d6fa6da_h

My sheets are tangled
And my thoughts race
Was I only dreaming
Or was I truly
Remembering

There was a man’s face
Almost your face
But the eyes were wrong
He did not look at me
With love

There was a hunger
But there was fear as well
Though what he had
To fear from me
I’ll never know

Was this a memory
From another lifetime
Or a hint of a lifetime
Yet to come
It is a mystery

But not all mysteries
Require solution
And you are here and warm
And the dreaming
Is soon forgotten

Elegy For My Soul

dream_by_taenaron-d34q599 I Will Find You

Don’t you hear the music
I can hear it playing
Running through my mind
A million miles an hour

The air is full of flowers
The kind that bloom at night
In warm and sultry climates
In lush profusion

And then of course
The memories come calling
It is my curse
That I cannot forget

It is my blessing
That once I truly had you
As I will always have you
Here inside my heart

And though we’d parted ways
And though the years
Were spent apart with
Contact at a minimum

Still news of your death
Struck me like a sword blow
I’ve never felt such pain
I did not even comprehend

That pain on such a level
Was anything but myth
I had grieved before
But not like this

Not like this

For still you are in
My blood my bone
My heart my very soul
And I am yours
Until the day I die

Until the day I die
