Strapped Into A Mourning Gown

Strapped into a mourning gown
That might survive our winter garden
Rebasing all these dreams
This predicament has begun to harden;
I beg your pardon
Slowly peeling off your layers
Caught us in a lightning storm
Feeling excited electricity
Between our adrenalized forms
Standing naked before the darkness
Illuminated only by midnight flashes
Perfection within a moment
Emotion dripping from your eyelashes

Tonight We’re Going To Step On Out

Tonight we’re going to step on out
Letting the cool breeze touch our souls
Watching the darkness quietly creep in
Holding hands as we take gentle pulls
The whiskey settles into a familiar burn
Nothing remaining but what we are
Excluding the day’s negative traits
Naturally only wearing the glow from the stars

She Liked To Remain In The Shadows

She liked to remain in the shadows
To avoid casual glimpses of her features
But I loved her no matter what she thought
She was beautiful, one of God’s lovely creatures
I always knew it was her by the extravagant handbags
& the way she wore her coat over her shoulders
The darkness could never hide her from my soul
With each step, desire allowed my heart to grow bolder

We’re Dealing With Our Daily Struggles

We’re dealing with our daily struggles

Some are obviously much more dire

But no one can minimize your pain

There’s no sunshine when you’re in the mire

Facedown, it’s difficult to have any hope

But know darkness will eventually burn away

The fog will lift & you’ll see the light

The Lord will always bring you to another day

A Question Of Intents & Purpose

A question of intents & purpose
Where & why; the source of our confusion
Time swaying with each movement
Closing our eyes, believing the illusion
Do you remember or it is all a memory
Lost within the darkness of our souls
I’m not who I ever thought I could be
Dreams evaporating when the moon grows full

Irrational Journeys Into The Darkness

Irrational journeys into the darkness
Feeling out your soul in the middle of the night
Still searching for that improbable trip
Recoiling into yourself at the tender slight
Trying to save all humanity
Sometimes you need to just save yourself
Taking time to mend your broken heart
Searching for the remedy for your soul’s health

The Sunsets Seem To Last Longer

The sunsets seem to last longer

Before the darkness comes closing in

Walking alone, the beach seems haunted

Memories from before we allowed life to begin

I love the brilliant colors of Spring

Enjoying life in the sunshine I revere

Slowly the light fades, taking my joy

Night brings heavy thought & steps along the pier

Returning To The World

Returning to the world
Finding life left unraveled
A smile never so grand
Home the best place traveled
Warmth of simple comforts
Never trading precious delights
Beauty in these open arms
Darkness eclipsed by light
