The Seclusion

Standard

How about meeting only in memories
The loveliest times
Flowers, hearts, sparkly eyes
How about locking everything in time
The beauty before decay
Frozen, subtle, kept at bay

The Muzzle

Standard

I wanna tell you I love you
But I said as you wish
I wanna hold you close
But I pushed you away
I wanna ignite
So I ignited your way

The Only Dance

Standard

Ruffles and bow
Tiara and tuxedo
How a wave would kiss the shore
Gently, lightly, con amore
We have ten minutes
We don’t ask for more
Diamond eyes and scarlet cheeks
We have what we have, remember me

The Propinquity

Standard

I can feel it
I feel you right next to me
I can sense them
Your every breathing pore
I can almost touch you
Almost
So close
And still
So far
If you existed in my world too

Inspired by Jon McLaughlin’s “So Close”

The Scramble

Standard

Am I the only destination
Of those very bad dreams
Am I the only one
Chased by shadows and screams
Bits, pieces, me, him
We fight shatters and no one wins

The Repose

Standard

Ariel no longer speaks
Voice forfeited
For a reason
She yet comprehends
Ariel no longer sings
Voice forsaken
For some reason
She feels at ease

The Sunbeams

Standard

It happened
We kissed
We exchanged fingerprints
It might come back
It might haunt me
But it’s far gone
I’m now under sunbeams
