This wistful longing, deep and true,
Though known to you, it feels anew.
A poignant tugging on your heart,
A distant echo, yet a piercing art.
You call it by a different name,
But its essence remains the same.
A yearning for what once was lost,
A love that lingers, at any cost.
Is it nostalgia, bittersweet and tender,
Or longing, a flame that burns forever?
Perhaps it’s both, a bittersweet refrain,
A testament to love, despite the pain.
Whatever its name, this feeling so real,
Is a reminder of love’s enduring zeal.
This wistful longing, deep and true,
How can you discern?
If the unseen forces gripping
your resolve are not mightier than your urge to
How can you fathom?
That there’s more to this realm than your
finite eyes can behold and your bounded mind can grasp.
When will you perceive?
That there’s been a change in your outlook,
When what was once vile now seems virtuous,
You end up saying “it’s not that grave.”
How can you verify?
If these emotions are genuine,
Or merely the mind’s ingenious ploy,
A phantom of our own being.
And how can I ascertain?
That the words I pen are veracious,
And not the mind’s deceptive scheme,

An amalgamation of artistry,
With an ardor for eloquence,
Linguistic virtuosos paint a tapestry,
Of lexicons, legerdemain, and brilliance.
Vestibules of vocabulary, vast and vibrant,
A cornucopia of cadence and diction,
Intricately woven, intellectually enchanting,
A symphony of sounds, a poetic depiction.
Sonnets serenade with sonorous tones,
Quintessential quatrains quietly contemplate,
Lyrical euphoria in mellifluous zones,
Embracing enigmatic epigrams with grace.
An opulent orchestra, a linguistic feast,
A celebration of lexicon, like a linguistic beast,
With erudite expression, they mesmerize,
How wonderful, these words, refined and wise.
Words walk random, rhythm and rhyme,
Repetition reigns, reason takes time.
Alliteration abounds, a linguistic feast,
Language lingers, longing for release.
Syllables sing, sounds soar,
Sentences sizzle, stories score.
Metaphors mingle, meanings merge,
Moods manifest, melodies surge.
Phrases flow, poetry prevails,
Prose pulsates, passion exhales.
Verses vibrate, voices rise,
Vernacular varies, visions surprise.
Words walk random, a wonderland of sound,
A labyrinth of language to be found.
Perception perplexed by peculiar psychotomimetic,
Psychedelic properties produce profound perceptions,
Hallucination heightens, hallucinogenic haze hovering,
Consciousness contorts, consciousness cascading,
Senses shift, synapses shudder, surreal scenes seen,
Mind melding, mental maze meandering, magic mushrooming,
Perception perturbed, perception painted in psychedelic patterns,
Hallucination hallucinates, hallucinogen hotwires the brain,
Consciousness crumbles, consciousness consumed by colors and chaos,
Psychotomimetic produces peculiar perceptions.
Every day is a daring adventure,
Endlessly exploring, experiencing allure.
Eagerly embracing each exciting endeavor,
Engaging in existence with enthusiasm forever.
Feeling the freedom of the wind in your hair,
Fulfilling your dreams without any care.
Finding new friends along the way,
Forever cherishing memories that forever stay.
For life is a journey, an endless quest,
Full of moments that we should all invest.
So go out and live life to the fullest extent,
Embrace existence with every breath and every moment.
A circle, oh how profound,
Perfectly pointless, spinning round and round.
Pretending to progress, but going nowhere at all,
Pandering to the masses, like a puppet on a call.
Pleased with itself, it repeats and repeats,
Picking up speed, like a train on its beats.
Pretentious and predictable, it thinks it’s so smart,
Puffing up its chest, playing a prideful part.
Perpetually pointless, it goes on and on,
Pretending to be unique, but it’s just a con.
Painfully predictable, it circles again,
Pretending to be new, but it’s just the same old game.
I see the panic in your eyes
Panic palpable, terror transparent,
Alarm laid bare for all to see.
Consternation carved in your gaze,
Dread displayed for the world’s watching.
Fear as evident as a brand,
Worry writ large on your face.
Apprehension apparent in your eyes,
Misodyny manifest in your stare.
I believed our paths to be intertwined,
Infinite in their intimacy, never confined.
Imprinted in my heart, your presence profound,
Inevitable and indelible, lost but never found.
Inescapable and intricate, our fate foretold,
Intrigued by the idea, my heart did unfold.
Insignificant and isolated, my path lies alone,
In the end, I realize, I was on my own.
Moments made, memories meant to last,
Mild and mellow, magic in the past.
Merry and meaningful, moments we miss,
Memories made, moments we reminisce.
Misty and mystical, memories meander,
Morphing and merging, memories we remember.
Memories that matter, memories that move,
Moments of magic, memories we love.
Character carved from calamity,
Fortitude forged in fire.
Resilience ribs from ruin,
Grit grown of grief’s grist.
Might of misfortune milled,
Valor of sorrow sown.
Trauma’s harsh harvests reaped,
Then twisted to trophies.
Slept undressed #Poetry
Slept undressed, my love, all bars down,
Not a veil nor wall between bliss’s crown.
Flesh to warm flesh, heart beating with heart,
Loving, living, never to part.
Hand sought hand as midst the night
Kiss led kiss and soft hold led light.
Wakefulness blurred in joy that knows but the now
Here in the nest for two, past all vows.
Dawn may come steal you, the world call you away,
But this night and ever, heart, here you’ll stay.
Time out of time, as meshed without measure,
This is the dream that shall know no ceasing treasure
Softly, sweetly, summer sun
Sinks behind the hills undone
Stars start sparkling in the sky
Stealing breath with every sigh
Swaying shadows, silent night
Soothes the soul with calm delight
Senses stir with subtle sound
Savoring love that’s newly found
Spirited souls, side by side
Savoring every step and stride
Sharing secrets, soft and slow
Savoring love that’s sure to grow
So let us linger, long and late
Savoring this sweet escape
Savoring love with every kiss
Soaring high in purest bliss.
Let my luring lyrics lock you in my lure,
With words that won’t wane, but will work for sure,
Taming your taste buds with tantalizing pleasure,
Bewitching you with a bounty of poetic treasure.
My musings melding with your marvelous form,
Enslaving your senses, creating a captivating storm,
Leading us both to a luscious literary trance,
Binding our breaths to the beat of poetic romance.
Curiosity consumed the cunning cat,
Constantly curious, he couldn’t ignore that.
Carefully creeping, he crept and he crawled,
Cautiously curious, he saw and he sawed.
Concealed by the curtains, he cautiously peered,
Craving to see what could be revered.
Caught in the corner, a candy jar caught his eye,
Curiosity overwhelming, he couldn’t deny.
Carelessly crawling, he crept up the stand,
Catastrophically knocking, candy onto the land.
Clumsy cat, causing chaos and concern,
Cleverly escaping, the cat did adjourn.
Calmly concealing, he crept away with ease,
Carrying the candy, covertly and carefully he flees.
Cunning and curious, he won the game,
Content with his candy, he felt no shame.
Silent stillness settles over the scene, Sun slowly sinking, shades serene. Sky splashed with shades of scarlet and gold, Surging sensations, stories untold.
Serene sea, sparkles of sun, Sounds of seabirds, sweetly spun. Shadows stretch, sleepy sun sets, Soothing and stunning, serenity begets.
Swaying ships, slow to the shore, Sun setting, silent no more. Spiraling sensations, sweeping sky, Spectacular show, saying goodbye.
Sultry sunset, softly surreal, Sensational sight, sunset’s appeal. Soulful serenity, sinking sun, Savoring the scene, sensation begun.
Admire the mire
Mind the matter
But dont wallow in worry.
For perception is pain.
Duplication is devious.
Smiles are sinister.
Bring on the beginning.
Endure unto the end.
Darkest are the days.
Nightmarish as the nights.
Ghouls of old gestalt.
Rise to revenge.
Time is taken.
Lord of lies.
