Good afternoon… It’s my friend Lauren’s Birthday today… I’m wishing her a Happy One. No matter how old that girl gets, she can’t catch up to me. Tho’ I can’t really account for the many lives we’ve shared. I think we run on equal with that one.
Here is the other ‘Love’ poem I sent out for publication.. Feed back appreciated.
Love leaves the taste of metal
Sweet fragments of bitter curse
On the tongue of Death’s linger
Painful in the departure of
How loss ravages the heart
Love calls the writhing Fury’s
To sing with Neil Diamond
In an a’capella harmony of chaos
Dropping Life-Safer candy to
War torn starved children
Love caresses the angel’s longing
For the tinker chimes of Life’s call.
Hallelujah, praise to the everlasting
Symphony of heaven in hell
Dancing with this angel with devilish on
Love speaks in silent thunder
Caresses Love with seething breath.
Burns the way into your soul, full
Of everything and nothingness
Waiting for you to embrace the heat of ice
Love is not one thing or another
It is All in the scald and the freeze
In the void and brilliance of life and death.
Love doesn’t give less to evil for good’s regard
It is the trump of eternity’s gift
Love will not pass by the right or wrong
Of what is seen or unseen in the dense fog’s clear view
Love makes no condemnation in the here and now
Forever Love’s caresses is the steel and the silk
In the fury and the radiance of life’s infinite journey
